Question about Epson Stylus CX3200 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Still looking for Smart-Scan software

MadBindus has lead me to the Epson site - but no sign of Smart-Scan software there. I had successfully loaded Twain and Printer drivers before - but pressing the scan button leads me to a near-useless window offering three ill-chosen applications to use for the scan. I get a much better facility via the twain souce in Paintshop Pro.

Where is that elusive Smart-Scan software??

Alternatively, how do I get PSP to be a selectable item in the pop-up list when I press the scan button?

    Thanks MB - just to confirm it is CX3200.

    I have been to properties/events before - the only applications offered are

    FinePixViewer

    Canon CameraWindow

    ACDSee 7.0

    I can't find where this list is stored (I've looked in the registry)

    Thanks MadBindus

    From your comments, I think I'm as close as I'm going to get - which is to initiate the scan from Paintshop Pro - which is where I want the scan anyway (except on the rare OCR occasions).



    Works fine from there. I might as well disable the scan button on the machine (via properties/events).



    Thanks for all your help. Bob

You can program the scan button by going to "Control Panel" and "Scanner's and Camera's.

Right Click the scanner and go to "Properties"

Select the "Events" tab

It should allow you to program your one touch button from here. I just wanna verify that you do have the CX3200 and not a Stylus Scan 2500?

    As you already know, you do not the need the Smart Panel (smart scan) to actually use the scanner. The Bonus Software called smart panel (options include "Scan and Save, Scan to .Application, Scan to email, Copy utlity etc." is actually made by a company called Newsoft (www.newsoftinc.com). You would most likely have to purchars that program from them as i have never seen it as a free down load.



    If your program is not showing up in the events tab, forget about that method... no mayyer what u do it will not show up there.... trust me.



    But, please explain to me exactly how it used to be, step by step, when u used to scan and all was good. I may be able to figure a simple solution for you.

My Epson RX650 scan software will not start up. The printer works and the copy feature works. When I double click on the Epson Scan icon on my desktop it appears that it wants to start up but then...


Install another scanning software, if you have photoshop or any imaging software, you can use the scanner by going to the menu, then choose File, Import, TWAIN, Acquire and the scanner control will appear.

Or just go to My Computer and double click the scanner icon (in XP) to start the scanning assistant.

I need to scan A document using an epson RX425 printer how do I do it #


It depends somewhat on your OS and the software installed you have installed. With a Automatic Document Feed, the pages need to be face up and the top edge forward in the feeder. On the glass platen, put the documents face down.

Open a TWAIN-compliant scanning application (XP, Vista and Win7 all have Paint which can acquire scans). Vista and Win7 also have Windows Fax and Scan. If you installed other software (such as that which came with the scanner), you would use that - Epson Smart Panel or ArcSoft Photo Impressions. Next open Epson Scan (this doesn't work with the Mac software so look at epson.com for Mac info). This runs the scan (and any specific resolution adjustments you make). It will generally launch when you hit Scan in the application. You can run Epson Scan alone if you do not want to edit the documents right away. Click Start > All Programs > Epson Scan > Epson Scan to use Epson Scan. In the Epson Smart Panel, you would click Scan and Save to start scanning or Scan with Options to adjust the settings prior to scanning.

If the Epson Smart Panel is installed and set up for it (including having a monitor running), you can also initiate scans from the scan button on the unit. Scan problems most often occur when there is a block in two-way communication. Try a new data cable and a different port. If you have a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection. The cable should be under 6' long for best results.

I hope this helps.

You do not actually need Smart panel to use the scanner. Epson scan will allow you to scan and save to the PC etc. To install the printer and scanner download and install Epson Scan and Driver from the following page. http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=SF8cgjsfr7MDXMcEkJfQFa89pC7QCDCv&tc=6#7

Epson stylus PHOTO RX425


Epson has software called "Epson smart panel" and you can select scan from the list of operations.
Turn your scanner on, (windows OS) click on "start" then click on "all programs", look for epson smart panel in programs list, click and let panel load, then select scan.
It will take some time for the scanner to warm and scan, so be patient, after it is scanned your options are to print, or save. If you save, be sure you know where its filed or "tell" it where to save, I recommend creating a new folder before in "your pictures" titled "scans" . Usually after you do this, it will save it there by default.
