The Programs will not communicate with the scanner although they recognise that it is there

Please download and install this: Click Here Then test it again. The download is an updated scanner driver and scan utility.

I have downloaded and installed the software but even OmniPage Pro won't communicate with the scanner Should I try using a USB Connection?

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 2 years ago.

I did not give you OmniPage is that what you installed? I gave you an Epson Scan Utility.

I have tried the program you have sent me and the software won't communicate with the scanner

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 2 years ago.

Ok the program I sent you have the scanner driver built into it, so that should not happen. Please test with USB and let me know if the same thing still happens.

The Scanner does work with a USB Stick

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 2 years ago.

That is not what I meant, I meant with a usb cable connecting it to the computer.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

There is no USB Connection on the printer to connect with the computer!!!!

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 2 years ago.
.
There is actually it is right next to the phone line port. It still however sounds to me like the scanner driver did not install though. I am going to opt out and open this to all experts here is a picture of the ports:

Hello,
My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.
I can see that you may need a little bit of extra help.
Do you still need help with this problem? If so, may I start a screen sharing session on your computer and help you resolve the problem?
Thank you.

The printer is set up wirelessely which works fine with printing but my Programs which I use to scan do not communicate with the scanner. I used a USB Stick and set up the scanner interface to use the usb stick and scan to a pdf file and that worked with omni page pro

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I don't mind you taking over the PC

Expert:  Jason Jones replied 2 years ago.
I'm sorry, but something has come up unexpected.
For this reason, I am opting out of the question and allowing another expert the chance to help.
The next expert will see all that is on this page, so there will be no need to repeat anything.
When another expert picks this up, you will be notified by email.
Thank you for your patience.
