    I got the same error message. The problem solved after I unlocked the tab on the top left coner . It works but prints out nothing when I press copy B&W and copy color. How can I solve this problem?

    Epson Scanner CX5400, red light on, starts as if it will scan, but stops
    The little screen,
    Scanner Error -- See your documentation or call service if necessary

    I've tried everything–won't photo copy

    Printing from Illustrator or photoshop is no problem.

What is the error message? SCANNER ERROR?
If that is what you getting, turn printer off then open scanner cover- on the left hand side there is a toggle log for scanner, position it to unlock then turn printer on then try scanning/copying again.

if your having a different error message pls indicate the exact error that you are getting.

I have a message on my cx5400 3 in 1 that says

Scanner could not allocate required memory. Quit other application and try again.

I don't have anything else on the screen when this occurs. It runs through the scanning process and then instead of finishing flips out this message.

Any Ideas. I tried turning of the printer and starting over
I have also restarted my computer. No change

Depending on the OS you are running, will determine which driver to download and install. Go to this link and download the correct driver. Uninstall the printer completely prior to installing the driver to make sure you get rid of the incorrect driver from the previous install.

Scaner does not work with Windows 7, are there any


Yes there is a scanner driver available, this however is a Twain driver and you will need to use the "Import" or "Aquire" function from within word, office scanning utility, Adobe Standard etc for this to work.
