The first thing to try: a new USB cable and a different port. (If you are using a hub, try directly connecting to the computer). What does the device manager say about the scanner? (In Windows, access from the Control Panel > Hardware. Exact directions depend on the OS version.)

Check the transport lock on the bottom of the scanner - do not put the scanner on its side when you check the lock.

Make sure the scanner was on and had already warmed up (stopped blinking) before you tried to start the scanner software (either by the buttons or from the scanner). You may want to reboot the computer (in case the computer thinks one program has locked access to the scanner).

I hope this helps.

(scanners require two-way communication with the computer and a bad cable will stop the scan even when the computer sees the scanner and the software installed without a problem.)

I have a 2580 Epson Scanner and for some reason can't work with my Mac Pro, Can you please help me?


hi there, it may be that Epson hasn't developed drivers compatible with your system. My suggestion is to try it on another computer that has windows and see if it works. If so, go on Safari and type in Epson Perfection 2400 Photo Flatbed scanner drivers and see what comes up on Epson's website.

I have an epson 2580 it now produces somewhat


The only way you're going to know if it's the scanner or the driver for sure is to install it on say an XP machine and see what results you get. If it's still dark, it's the scanner, if not, it's the driver.

Need installion rom and driver that are necessary


I cannot send you a CD -- I do not have one but I can show you where on the internet you can download the drivers and manuals for this machine. According to Epson's Vista support page even if I had a CD you would still need to download the Vista drivers. (They apparently were released after the CD)

In order to read the manuals you will need Adobe Reader it is free click the Get Adobe Reader button at this link.

Your manuals and software are available here

Epson does not seem to have instructions on how to install the downloaded software.Try installing this the first two in the order they are in the list they are the only ones applicable to windows Vista. (assure you only install downloads for VISTA.
