Question about Epson Stylus Photo RX500 Printer

1 Answer

Can't get it to scan

I have an Epson RX500. I have the twain Drivers downloaded but can't get it to respond to the scan command on the printer itself. If I open the smart panel icon on my computer and click it, it only gives me a list of various printers/scanners to select. I select mine and click OK and it does absolutely nothing. I followed all the steps from Epson's support web site, deleting all Epson folders and redownloading and installing. I have downloaded the following drivers from Epson's site: 10973, 11284, 10908, 11390 and installed each of them, with the exception of 11284: it keeps giving me an error message stating it could not install due to a file of the Epson Smart Panel not being found. I use OS X 1.3.9 operating system, FYI. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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

You need to download a "Twain Driver and Epson Scan Utility" from
the Epson Website.

But before you start downloading the Twain Driver we need to delete
the previously installed driver in your computer.

1.) Click and open the MAC or Apple Hard drive / Application and trash Epson Scan and Epson Scanner Monitor ( drag it to your trash )
2.) MAC hard drive / Library / Image Capture / Twain Data Source., we need to trash ( *.ds file )
3.) MAC hard drive / Library / Application Support., trash the Epson Scanner Module
4.) Disconnect the connection ( USB ) between the printer and your MAC.
5. ) Empty your Trash bin and restart your MAC

After the restart we can now download and install the Twain driver to your MAC.
