KamilAnwar1 :

Hello & Welcome to JustAnswer.

KamilAnwar1 :

May i remotely connect to your computer to take a look at the issue directly?

Customer:

No. I wouldn't be keen to do that

KamilAnwar1 :

Okay. That was for your own ease.

KamilAnwar1 :

So how are you scanning (direct from the device) or through the printer software running on the PC?

Customer:

Direct via a USB cable

KamilAnwar1 :

what happens if you scan from the printer software?

Customer:

the same. All I get from the scanner ( which is also my printer) is the message " not connected"

KamilAnwar1 :

Is that the exact message that appears?

KamilAnwar1 :

Which operating system is it?

Customer:

Communication error Connect Computer is exact message on the scanner/printer

Customer:

System is Apple

KamilAnwar1 :

Which version of Apple?

KamilAnwar1 :

And which printer is it Epson NX415 or SX415 ?

Customer:

Printer is XP-415

Customer:

I don't know version of Apple. Computer is from 2008

KamilAnwar1 :

If you click the apple icon on the top left side and select about this mac

KamilAnwar1 :

you will see the version number for OS X

Customer:

Version 10.5.8 Thanks for telling me that !

KamilAnwar1 :

Please download and run this driver and then see if scanner works or not

Customer:

OK. Thanks. I might be a few minutes

KamilAnwar1 :

No worries, take your time.

Customer:

I feel a bit daft. I downloaded the Epson programme. However to install I need my administrator name and password ***** the Mac which we have lost ! Any good ideas ?

KamilAnwar1 :

That is the password ***** setup when you configured the Mac. Unfortunately, i cannot help with that because it is a different issue and you would need to ask a question separately for that.

Customer:

I will go digging for the password ***** and admin name and see what I can do. Can I just leave "chat" open for a while ?

KamilAnwar1 :

Yes, you can that's no problem.

Customer:

It worked. Thank you so much

KamilAnwar1 :

You are welcome.

KamilAnwar1 :
