Make sure you have Adobe acrobat or similar installed so that you have PDF available on the PC. It may also be in the software for the Epson. I had a scanner a few years ago whose software excluded PDF and I ended up installing new software of a generic printer / scanner to use Adobe PDF

I'm having trouble scanning B&W documents with

You have two options for scanning text. You may explore both of them and see which is better for you. Either way, you will have to make friends with manually changing the scanning settings, because simple presets often are not suited for every case.

First is to use Grayscale mode, and a minimum resolution of 200dpi. This should give you satisfactory text quality. If you want to print the text afterwards, 300dpi would be even better. You may want to increase contrast, to get the letters more defined and eliminate most of the background toning.

Second is to use Black and White (monochrome) mode, but in this case you need to set the resolution higher, preferrably to 600dpi. Also in this case you will have to play with the Black/White threshold in order to eliminate background "dirt" appearing as black artefacts.

If you scan the documents in order to process them with OCR software, usually the OCR application will give you suggestions on how to set the scanning parameters to obtain good results.

Red flashing power light

I am sure the original poster will have probably replaced the unit by now but I just had a similar problem with my Epson Perfection 2480 Photo scanner so I think it is still worth posting the solution in case other people hit this problem in the future. All I had to do was put the switch underneath the scanner to the "unlocked" position and then reboot the unit. Hey presto it burst back into life. It's annoying to see that the manual seems to suggest that the red light means the unit is "dead" !
