Question about Epson STYLUS CX3900 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Stylus cx3900 and windows vista

Any help would be much appreciated ... am running Windows Vista ... Epson Stylus CX3900 scanner driver is not working (printing like a charm though ...).
When I click on the Scan icon, it briefly shows up in the task bar, then goes away. Also cannot find it listed on my device manager.
Have uninstalled and reinstalled many times, have turned off anti-viral programs with no luck. Epson says something in my OS which is not allowing the scanner to function (then told me to call a computer tech!).
Again any help would be great.

    thanks for the help ... ended up returning it, and getting an HP - similar problem and spent hours on the phone with HP - and finally got it working by adding a new user, and downloading the software that way ... and it worked!

    Epson Stylus CX3900 scanner driver is not working in windows vista,what can I do?

  • Anonymous Mar 26, 2014

    When I print everything is normal except the page doesn't come out. It goes into the queue and then out; all the normal windows appear on the screen. I know the printer is communicating because the scanner works. I have reinstalled the driver several times, and that does not help.

Not a computer problem as such
There is in general an issue with drivers for peripherals of all types and brands with VISTA and it seems the Manufacturer are digging their heels in and not making driver changes.
E-mail Microsoft support and see what they have to say
And keep kicking Epson
It is really up to peripheral manufacturer to keep up.

Meanwhile you could try this
Look up the Vista Help[My Computer- Help]
Check out Program Compatibility
The idea is you set the computer  to pretend is its an older system XP/98 etc and load the program  once that is set.

I lost my the cd installation for the printer all in one epson stylus cx3900. i am trying to download it for free in vain


You shouldn't have to pay for a driver. There is a driver here

http://download.cnet.com/EPSON-Stylus-CX3900-Series/3000-2116_4-131725.html

however, this driver will only work with windows xp 64bit and windows vista 64bit systems. I cannot guarantee this driver will work for you because I don't know what operating system you're using.

My Epson CX3900 prints fine. It's when I try to open Epson scan that I get an error message "Cannot properly communicate with scanner"


if the unit is directly connected via USB, another program or prev installed scanner software is using "the path" to communicate with the scanner. Can only use one scanner at a time with windows.
