Epson Expression 1680

Having trouble with getting this scanner working on a new laptop with either firewire or usb.  Have downloaded and reinstalled drivers but Epson Scan just doesn't go anywhere and says check connection.  IT shows up in System Profiler.  Any ideas?

Hi-

Do you have any existing drivers for new epson scanners( models), if you have then there are compatibility issues between new drivers and old drivers, are you using a leopard 10.5 operating system or tiger 10.4.**? try uninstalling every epson info from applications folder and from library/image capture and library/preferences. you an use the finder to search for epson scan and drg them all to trash. Try using image capture application as well if it will scan when you run it, then reinstall driver.

One more thing, when you click on epson scan, does it bounce continouosly from the dock? if it is then look for a subfolder and install everything in it.

Keep me posted, thanks!

Expression 1680 Professional Flatbed Scanner: Transparency adaptor stuck in open position. The h...


Had the same problem. By lid I assume you mean transparency unit. To fix, it is necessary to remove the transparency unit from the scanner. Then IN A CLEAN AREA! with the glass side up unscrew the 6?screws that hold the top unit together. There will be a hinge assembly inside. You must remove it, clean it, and re grease it thoroughly. I used lithium grease from an aerosol can. Has not given me problem since. the whole process took about a half hour. just make sure you are gentle, and keep everything clean.

Fuzzy scanned image from Epson Expression 10000XL scanner


Make sure that the item being scanned is lying flat against the scanner's glass. If the scanned image is still fuzzy after adjusting the object, clean the scanner glass with a lint-free cloth and some vinegar or ammonia-free window cleaner.

Lines through negative scans


Clean the glass surface with Iso propyl alcohol (Industrial grade is enough). Dont use any solvent. Just for immediate usage, you can use your aftershave and clean. Clen with a soft cloth.

Scanner won't turn on


Hi,
Try to test the power cord of the scanner (cable from scanner to outlet) using multitester if there is an electricity or if you have extra power cord test it. Maybe that's the defect. If that's not the problem it is now the scanner itself, have it for the repair man or technician.
Thanks

Communication with scanner


You could take it apart and see if you can lubricate the shaft the the scanner sits on with some vasoline. If that doesn't it could be that the stepper motor that controls the scanner is going bad in it.
