Every 3 or 4 days if I try to scan something all I get is an error message, "Epson Scan cannot be started. Please use the Troubleshooting Assistant to solve the problem. Do you want to open the the Troubleshooting Assistant?"
At first I said "yes" but it didn't solve the problem. I found the best and easiest way was to reinstall the scanner drivers again, and it works perfect for a few days then it goes into the error message again.
I have only ever used the CD that came with the scanner, which says, Disc Vol 1.2
The scanner works perfectly after a reinstall, but only for a few days. I have emailed Epson and have had an automated response saying my query is being attended to. Will wait and see what they (Epson) recommend.
is this an old style scanner that uses the printer port lpt1 and daisy chains with the printer? If it is your printer is doing it - I have a dim memory of a similar problem way back when I got my first ever scanner.
Sethhaniel, not running ccleaner but I do use CleanUp every Sunday, plus a small DOS batch file which resets the "index.dat" files back to their defaults, after which I do a complete backup of all my data/files. This is my regular Sunday routine. My previous scanner (Umax) never had any problems. I bought the current Epson because it has Film and Slide facilities.
