Scanning - program not responding

  jack 09:06 18 Sep 2008

Epson Perfection Scanner
Epson Smart Panel software
Paint Shop Pro Image Editor
With this combination I have 3 opportunities to acquire an image.
1. Scan and Print - as a photocopier
2. Scan and save- through Smart panel scan mage
save to folder.
3. Access through Paint shop then as 2.

1. Works perfectly copies and prints.

2&3 however stalls at the 'Image Processing' stage
The scanned image appear in the window in Paint shop, for example the Image Processing window comes up- but then the whole lot stalls and eventually - 'Program not responding' shows in the top bar.
Where lies the problem?

Try removing and reinstalling PSP

I have the Epson Perfection 3490Photo, excellent kit.

Three possibilities where lies the problem,

1. Possible registry glitch - run click here

2. Download and install latest drivers for your scanner from the Epson site.

3. Update or re-install Paint shop software.

Will take look look at the driver situation first as the stall occurs in Epson software, and one presumes the PSP is simply linking through.

PSP is a funny one as it does seem to 'lose bits' during its life time and has to be cleared out and reinstalled periodically- the most recent was Monday.
Will continue to play.

The scanner works OK
It scanned and sent to printer- which printed
OK in the 'Copier mode'.

It seems to 'trip up' when it is in the data processing mode - presumably to convert the scanned image to -a JPEG or PSP. file
I will delve some more before going to the lengths of taking out and reinstalling etc.

Simplyover laid the all the software and driver from the CD.
Perchance a little something got itself corrupted.
