Hi Rosemarie. Welcome to justanswer.
Yes you can scan as well as print from Epson XP-335. You just need to install the necessary drivers on to your computer. If you want me to do that for you then choose Secure Remote Assistance
Can you specify what kind on slide are you referring here?
You can thorough a DIY. I am not sure but you can give it a try. Should I guide you through?
Set the Scan mode to highest quality or Professional mode if you can
Okay now you need a template. A small paper pyramid can be constructed (thick paper, thin card or even foam core board can also be used) to ensure that the light from the scanner is diffused around the slide, thereby illuminating the entire image, rather than a small portion.
THIS IS THE TEMPLATE
You need to make it like this

Cut the solid lines and fold on the bro***** *****nes. All folds are upward--"toward" you--or "in" Crease the folds with a fingernail to make them sharp and smooth. Overlap the triangles on each side and tape, glue, or staple them together.
Clean the slide thoroughly with a damp cloth. Now find a means of securing it to the scanner.
Use sticky notes like shown in this attached image to secure the template with the slide.
And this one
Sorry the image didn`t attach. Check this one
The slide is not secured anywhere. Put one end of the sticky note on the slide and put the template on the sticky note such that it stays there on the slide and doesn`t move. There is no paper on the screen.
Capture the slide at 2400 DPI. One final tip is that it is wise to perform the scan in a dark environment. The slide should be near the center of the scanner glass, but the paper template can extend to either side of the slide. All it needs to do is reflect some of the light from the internal lamp onto the top of the slide, so that the scanner's sensor can pick up what passes down through the slide. Scan it with the scanner door open and check if this experiment gives any positive result.
Rosemarie, use a glossy paper next time and you will get better results
