    I downloaded the latest driver and ended up getting a message when the driver was being installed that it encountered an inconsistency. I'm using &*%# Vista :-(

    It looks as though this product is not ready for prime time.

How do you get an Epson Stylus NX410 out of copy mode?


The NX400 will automatically go into Scan or Print mode from software. So if you want to scan, launching the Epson Scan software will control the scan functions. Similarly, printing from any application will cause the NX400 to go into Print mode. Copy Mode is the only mode you control from the printer device itself.

Hope this helps.

Cant scan and store on PC. Startbutton does not work in this mode. Botton works normally in other modes.


Have you made sure your driver is up-to-date. I had a scanning problem recently and updating the driver did the trick. Also - if you look at the documentation supporting the driver update it says that scanning errors is one of the things it seeks to fix.

My Cannon Pixma MP500 multi-function printer randomly scans only part of the document on the glass. Sometimes it does get it right; that is it correctly scans the whole page, but very often, the scan...


Try to adjust the scanner resolution

Solution: Adjusting Output (Scan) Resolution (Windows) - MP150 / MP170 / MP450 / MP500 / MP800 / MP950

Adjusting Output (Scan) Resolution By changing the resolution, you can set how clear the image is going to be.
The higher the resolution, the clearer (but the larger) the scanned image is.
The resolution can be changed before scanning. (Note)
If the resolution is doubled, the image data will be quadrupled.
If the data is large, problems such as slow processing speed or lack of memory may occur.

To change standard scan settings using MP Navigator, click here

HELLO


Use the following steps to scan with the Epson Scan utility:
1. Open Epson Scan by going into START, PROGRAMS, and EPSON SCAN.
2. If prompted, select your scanner from the list of models and click OK.
3. In the FILE SAVE SETTINGS window, you can designate the location, name and type of file the scans will be saved as.

-LOCATION defaults to MY DOCUMENTS. Click BROWSE if you wish to change this.
-PREFIX determines how the scan will be named. Type any name you like. You can also designate a start number.
-FILE TYPE dictates what format the scans will be saved in. ie. .JPG, .TIFF, .PDF, or .PICT)
-For example: if the prefix is "img", the start number is "1", and the format is "JPG", the name of the file saved in
PICTURES will be "IMG001.JPG". More settings for file format are found under OPTIONS.
4. Click OK once settings are changed as desired.
5. The EPSON SCAN window will open and begin scanning in FULL AUTO MODE. In FULL AUTO MODE the software makes all the decisions for you (as to what is being scanned, where it is on the flatbed, etc). This is the easiest way to scan.
6. If you want full control over the scanning process click PAUSE and change FULL AUTO MODE to HOME MODE or PROFESSIONAL MODE. In the latter two modes you can change your scan settings as desired. Click SCAN after you have selected your settings. Click CLOSE once the EPSON SCAN is finished scanning.
7. When scanning is complete, your images will be saved in the location specified on FILE SAVE SETTINGS, with the prefix and in the format you set.
