  unitedman 18:23 07 Apr 2010

I have recently bought a PX710W printer and have it connected to my PC via USB cable. Cannot get it to scan..I get an error" Epson scan cannot be started There may be a problem with the network settings"
Any advice

It sounds as if you have the print driver but not the scan driver

How do i get it?

Have gone to event manager -On button settings it says Cannot connect to scanner , Check Scanner connection , yet the USB cable is the one I use for printing , should this not make it connect?

I gave you a link to the drivers in my first post, and you said you had already downloaded the scanner driver. Click on the link, and then select your operating system and then click on Drivers & Software. Then download and install the Epson Scan driver.

Here's the link again
