Correct Procedure for Deleting Epson Scan Driver:
!
!
!
Use the driver specifically written for your scanner model to uninstall the Epson Scan
driver.
If you have more than one Epson scanner model on your computer, use the driver
specifically written for each scanner to uninstall its respective device driver.
If upgrading from a Power PC-based Epson Scan driver to a Universal Binary driver,
first delete the Power PC driver using only the Power PC driver for your scanner model.
Then install the Universal Binary driver.
If the above procedure does not resolve the problem, then manually verify that the Epson
Scan files and folders, listed below, have been deleted.

EPSON Scan TWAIN Ver. 1.28 for Mac OS 10.2 to 10.3
This bulletin was created to inform you of an updated Epson Scan Twain Driver (1.28A) for the
following models: Perfection 610/640/1200/1240/1250/1260/1640/
1650/1660/1670/2400/2450/3170/3200 series scanners, Stylus CX3200/CX5200/CX5400
multi-function devices, Expression 1600/1680/1640XL series scanners.
Reason:
The new Epson Scan driver improves functionality when scanning in Mac OS 10.3. See the
next section for the list of changes included in the new driver.
Driver Improvements:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Enables Epson Scan to start when the Scan button is pushed.
Enables Epson Scan to start even if the volume name (Hard Disk) on the desktop is
only 2 bytes (2 characters) in length.
Eliminates the error “Epson scan cannot be started”, which occurs when the USB
cable is disconnected while Epson scan is loading.
Corrects lock-up issues when using the Zoom tool in Epson Scan.
Corrects functionality issues and mouse cursor lock-ups when using the Histogram
Adjustment, Tone Correction and Image Adjustment tools or when clicking on each
tool’s Title bar.
Prevents Epson Scan from unexpectedly quitting when scanning two or more times
from PhotoShop with a Perfection 1250 scanner.

Limitations of new driver:
•
•
•
•
•
•
This driver does not support “Fast User Switching” in OS 10.3. This feature must be
turned off before using Epson Scan.
You may receive an error “Epson Scan cannot be started” when trying to scan from
a Perfection 2450 that is connected to a USB 2.0 supported port. To avoid this error,
use a Firewire connection or a USB 1.1 only supported port.
Not all the scanner models on this list support Color Restoration and Dust Removal
so these settings may be unavailable in Epson Scan.
If experiencing unstable operation when scanning from a Perfection 1250 or 1260
scanner, restart your system.
If the computer goes into “sleep mode” and this setting was enabled in the Apple
Menu and you try to switch to a different mode after doing a preview scan in
Photoshop, the Epson Scan driver will freeze. This does not happen if the computer
goes into “sleep mode” after screen saver has started. To avoid lock-ups, change
the scanning mode before the computer goes into “sleep mode” or re-launch Epson
Scan after the computer wakes up and then change modes.
After scanning with the Perfection 1250, if you then close Epson Scan and
disconnect the USB cable, a scanner model selection dialog box may appear on the
screen. Click “No” and the box closes. You can scan normally afterwards.
Action:
The new driver is available on the Epson web site. Go to www.epson.com and click on Drivers
& Downloads. Select your scanner model. On the Downloads page look for TWAIN Driver and
Epson Scan Utility v.1.28A in the Macintosh section.
To Install Epson Scan 1.28A:
1. Launch the EPSON Scan Installer and follow the on screen instructions.
2. After the TWAIN has been installed, connect the USB or Firewire interface cable from the
scanner to the computer.
To Uninstall Epson Scan 1.28A:
1. Disconnect the USB interface cable from the scanner.
2. Launch the EPSON Scan Installer.
3. Open the drop-down menu where you see “Easy Install” and select “Uninstall”.
4. Click the Uninstall button.

Epson TWAIN v. 5.75A for Apple Macintosh OS X 10.2 and Image Capture
This bulletin was created to inform you of an issue that can occur when using the Epson TWAIN
driver (v. 5.75A) in Apple’s Image Capture utility on a Macintosh computer running OS X v.10.2
to v.10.2.4.
Reason:
After completing a scan with the Epson TWAIN driver, Image Capture may suddenly crash. The
problem appears to be isolated to Image Capture and does NOT occur in Adobe Photoshop 7,
Photoshop Elements 2.0 or other TWAIN-compliant applications.
Note: “Image Capture” and “Preview” are stand-alone application utilities built into OS X.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Image Capture. Open Preferences, Under "Scanner Preferences" check the box for
"Use TWAIN software whenever possible".
2. Quit Image Capture to save the setting.
3. Re-launch Image Capture.
4. Click Scan.
5. Click Cancel in the Epson TWAIN Full-Auto mode window.
6. Click “Manual Mode” to change to the Epson TWAIN Manual mode user interface window.
7. Without making a selection in the preview window, click the “Scan” button in the TWAIN
window, and wait for the scan to complete.
Note: After acquiring an image, Image Capture automatically opens the “Preview” application to
view the image.
8. Notice that Image Capture crashes after sending the resulting scanned image to the
“Preview” application.
Solution and Workarounds:
Choose from any of the solutions listed below.
1. In the Preferences settings for Image Capture, do NOT check the box for "Use TWAIN
software whenever possible".
2. If using the Epson TWAIN in Manual mode, drag a selection box around the area you
want to scan in the preview window before scanning.
3. Use Adobe Photoshop 7, Photoshop Elements 2.0 or other TWAIN-compliant
applications instead of Image Capture.
4. Upgrade your MAC OS X to 10.2.5 or higher.

Windows™ and Macintosh® Operating System requirements for USB 1.1/2.0
and IEEE-1394/FireWire® Interface connectivity
This bulletin was created to inform customers of EPSON America’s support policy regarding
Windows™ and Macintosh® operating system requirements for USB 1.1/2.0 and IEEE1394/FireWire® interface connectivity.
Reason:
Currently, there are many add-in USB 2.0 and IEEE-1394 connection host adapter products on the
market that include drivers for Windows and Macintosh OS that did not originally support specific
interfaces. Epson has released several scanner products with built-in USB 2.0 and/or IEEE-1394
(FireWire) ports. This document provides a guideline on EPSON America’s support policy on the
various operating systems and the interface connections they support. EPSON technical support
representatives will only be able to support customers who have Epson products that are configured
in accordance with the operating system requirements outlined here and in the product’s
documentation. Epson customers experiencing problems on an Epson product connected to an addin USB 2.0 or IEEE-1394 interface that does not meet the minimum system requirements will be
asked to contact the interface product vendor or computer manufacturer for technical support.
This document is not model specific. It does not include other important system requirements
required to determine product compatibility on a user’s computer. To determine product support
compatibility, please refer to the specific scanner’s minimum system requirements found on the
outside of the product box, or visit Epson’s web site at www.epson.com.

Smart Panel Copy Utility may produce copies with a light gray/blue/pink
background when printing to non-EPSON printers.
Description of issue:
If you are using Copy from EPSON Smart Panel 2.5/2.6 or you installed the Copy utility 2.00A
patch for Smart Panel 2.0A/1.0.xA, you may find that the program produces copies with a light
gray/blue/pink background.
Reason:
This is because when printing to non-EPSON printers with the Copy utility, the Automatic
Document Enhancement feature is turned off by default.
Solution:
To remove the background, you must enable Automatic Document Enhancement. To turn on
this feature, launch the Copy applet by double-clicking on its icon. Select Epson TWAIN 5 at
the following window and click “OK”.
Page 1 of 2
Click on the “Image Adjust” button. You will notice the Auto Document Enhancement OFF
button is selected (highlighted in dark gray).
Click the ON button. You will now notice that this button is selected (highlighted in dark gray).
Now click on the large green Copy button, your image will be scanned and printed. The copy
of your document should look very close to the original with no background colors added.
Note: The Copy utility was designed to scan and print a copy of a Letter size (8.5” X 11”)
document. If your document is not a full letter-size piece of paper, then the portion of the
scanner’s document mat that is showing will be included as part of your copy. Some bright
white papers can cause a noticeable contrast between the document and the document mat.
As a result the Copy utility may recognize the exposed document mat as a having a light blue
color. In this case you may still see a light blue background on your printout where the
document mat was showing.

Epson Smart Panel & Security Rights on Windows 2000
This bulletin was created to inform you of an issue with Epson Smart Panel running under
Windows 2000. This issue affects Smart Panel version 1.0.xA (1.01, 1.02, 1.03), bundled with
the Perfection 640U/1240U/1640SU series and version 2.0A, which is included with the
Perfection 1250/1650/2450 series.
Description of the Issue:
When running Windows 2000, if Epson Smart Panel is installed from the scanner software
CD, and is used by members of the Administrator or Power Users Group, the program works
normally. If a member of a restricted group (Users, Backup Operators, Replicator, Guest) logs
on to a computer on which an Administrator or Power User installed Smart Panel, the user will
receive an error when booting up to the desktop. A dialog box with an “OK” button pops up
displaying the following error message:
“There is no Registry data for EPSON SMART PANEL!"
Clicking "OK" in the dialog box does not remove the error message, even if you click OK
repeatedly. The computer is unusable at this point and eventually locks up. To recover, the
user must perform a hard reset and log in as a Power user or Administrator.
If a member of the “Restricted User” group attempts to install the Epson Smart Panel software,
one of two things happens: (1) Windows prevents the user from starting installation or (2) the
installation completes and all users, including Administrators and Power Users will see the
"Registry Data Error" when booting to the desktop.
Reason:
Smart Panel loads “Start” button monitoring during Windows startup. When logged in as a
restricted user, Windows returns an error message as described above because the user has
insufficient rights. Specifications for Smart Panel do not provide sufficient rights for restricted
users to install and use Smart Panel on Windows 2000. Only Administrators, users with
Administrator rights and Power users have sufficient access privileges to install and use Smart
Panel. If a member of a Restricted user group is able to install Epson Smart Panel, the
program will need to be manually removed by an Administrator logged on in “Safe Mode.”
Using the “Search” utility in Windows 2000, delete all files for “Epson Smart Panel for
Scanners.” A System Administrator will then need to add the "Restricted user” to the Power
Users Group before the user can install and use Smart Panel.

Copy Utility Workaround for Non-Epson Printers
This bulletin was created to provide information on using Smart Panel’s Copy Utility with non-Epson
printers in Windows. The following sections describe a workaround that can be used when Copy Utility
has problems working with non-Epson printers.
Description of Issue:
Epson Smart Panel includes a utility called Copy that is used for scanning and printing documents.
Although Copy works with non-Epson printers it does not support all models. Epson periodically releases
updates to support the newer models. However, since new printers are continually being released to
market, the current Copy update may not work with the latest models.
When Copy Utility launches, it first initializes the scanner and printer. If it does not recognize the printer,
the program will normally return an error. The error message may vary depending on the operating
system and version of Copy. In some cases, the program won’t generate an error dialog; instead, it will
launch and then quickly shut down. If you get the error dialog, it will typically look like one of those listed
below. When you click OK to close the dialog, the program takes you back to the Smart Panel main user
interface.
1
Workaround:
As a temporary solution, select another Windows default printer (i.e. one that’s compatible with Copy)
and then launch Copy. In Copy, change the printer back to the one that you want to use. Click the green
and Copy button to scan and print.
Follow these steps to configure Copy for the workaround.
1) First, verify that you have installed the latest version of Copy (currently 2.00A). Launch Copy and
look for a green screen. This is version 2.00A and it should look like this:
If you don’t see this on your screen then visit our web site at www.epson.com and download the Copy
update.
2) Once you have installed the update, test your printer in Copy. If you get an error then go to the
next step.
3) Click the Start button and then click Settings. Select Printers. You can also use Control Panel to
select Printers (Printers and Faxes for Windows XP). In Printers, use the Add Printer Wizard to
add a printer. For Windows 98 and up, you can try the HP LaserJet 4. For Windows 2000 and
XP, the Stylus Photo 750 ESC/P2 works fine. For Windows 95, you’ll need to use an older model
such as the HP LaserJet 3 series. Keep in mind that other models can be used. If one model
doesn’t work then use another one.
4) Follow the on-screen instructions to install the printer. Once completed verify that it is the default
printer.
5) Launch Copy. If the new default printer is compatible, the program will open normally.
2
6) Click the Device Settings button. This will bring up the Device Settings user interface. In the
Output Device field (the default printer will be listed here), click on the arrow. This will bring up
the Output Device Chooser window. The screen should look like this.
7) Change the printer name to the one you want to use and then click OK. Click on the Green
button to start scanning.

Copy Utility Workaround for Non-Epson Printers on Macintosh Systems
This bulletin was created to provide information on using Smart Panel’s Copy Utility with non-Epson
printers on a Macintosh computer. The following sections describe a workaround that can be used when
Copy Utility has problems working with non-Epson printers.
Description of Issue:
Epson Smart Panel includes a utility called Copy that is used for scanning and printing documents.
Although Copy works with non-Epson printers, it does not support all models. Epson periodically
releases updates to support the newer models. However, since new printers are continually being
released to market, the current Copy utility may not work with the latest models.
When Copy Utility launches it first initializes the scanner and then the printer. If it does not recognize the
printer, the program may lock up the system or simply stop running. You may have to use the Force Quit
command or restart the computer to recover.
Workaround:
As a temporary solution, select the LaserWriter as the default printer and then launch Copy. In Copy,
select the printer that you want to use. Click the Copy button to auto-scan and print. You can use this
workaround with Smart Panel 1.01A, 1.02A, 1.03A and 2.0A.
Follow these steps to configure Copy for the workaround.
1) Open Chooser and select a different default printer. We recommend using the LaserWriter.
Close Chooser when finished.
2) Launch Copy. Click on the Target Printer button. This automatically opens Chooser. Select the
actual printer you will use to scan and print. After completing your selection, click OK to close
Chooser.
3) Click Print Setting and configure the printer driver settings as needed. Click OK to close the
Settings dialog box.
4) Click the Copy button to start scanning.
5) When you are finished using Copy and you have no other print jobs, open Target Printer and set
the default printer back to the LaserWriter. Close Copy.

Epson Smart Panel & Security Rights on Windows 2000
Originator: TC
Authorization:
Total Pages: 1
This bulletin was created to inform you of an issue with Epson Smart Panel version 1.0.xA
software running under Windows 2000. This software can be found on the scanner software
CD for the following Epson scanner series: Perfection 640U/1240U/1640SU.
Description of the Issue:
This issue will occur if you have one of the following products: the Epson Perfection
640U/1240U/1640SU series scanner, and are using Windows 2000.
When running Windows 2000, if Epson Smart Panel version 1.0.xA is installed from the
scanner software CD, and is used by members of the Administrator or Power Users Group,
the program works OK. If a member of the more restricted groups (Users, Backup Operators,
Replicator, Guest) logs on to a computer where an Administrator or Power User has installed
Epson Smart Panel version 1.0.xA, the user will receive an error when Windows 2000 opens.
A dialog box with an “OK” button pops up displaying the following error message:
“There is no Registry data for EPSON SMART PANEL!"
If you click "OK" the dialog box will not go away, even if you click it repeatedly. The computer
will be unusable in this state and eventually it locks up. A hard reset or power off is required at
this point. During installation Epson Smart Panel loads a taskbar shortcut in the System Tray
that cannot be disabled. Epson Smart Panel monitors the status of the “Start” button(s) on the
scanner at startup; this causes the initial error when Windows 2000 opens.
If a member of the “Restricted User” group attempts to install the Epson Smart Panel software,
one of two things may happen. The user may get an error message and not be able to install
Epson Smart Panel, or if the installation completes, all users, including Administrators and
Power Users will get the same "Registry Data Error" as described above.
Reason:
Specifications for Epson Smart Panel require the program be installed and used by members
of the Administrator or Power Users groups only. Epson Smart Panel does not support use by
members of more Restricted groups. If a member of the more Restricted groups successfully
installs Epson Smart Panel, it will need to be manually removed by an Administrator logged in
under “Safe Mode.” Using the “Search” utility in Windows 2000, delete all files for “Epson
Smart Panel for Scanners.” A System Administrator will then need to add the "restricted user”
to the Power Users Group, and then that user can correctly Install and use Epson Smart Panel
version 1.0x.

Copy Utility Workaround for Non-Epson Printers
This bulletin was created to provide information on using Smart Panel’s Copy Utility with non-Epson
printers in Windows. The following sections describe a workaround that can be used when Copy Utility
has problems working with non-Epson printers.
Description of Issue:
Epson Smart Panel includes a utility called Copy that is used for scanning and printing documents.
Although Copy works with non-Epson printers it does not support all models. Epson periodically releases
updates to support the newer models. However, since new printers are continually being released to
market, the current Copy update may not work with the latest models.
When Copy Utility launches it first initializes the scanner and then the printer. If it does not recognize the
printer, the program will return an error. The error message varies depending on the operating system
and version of Copy. You will most likely encounter one of the error dialogs illustrated below. When you
click OK to close the dialog, the program takes you back to the Smart Panel main user interface.
Workaround:
As a temporary solution, select another Windows default printer (i.e. one that’s compatible with Copy)
and then launch Copy. In Copy, change the printer back to the one that you want to use. Click the green
and Copy button to scan and print.
Follow these steps to configure Copy for the workaround.
1
1) First, verify that you have installed the latest version of Copy (currently 2.00A). Launch Copy and
look for a green screen. This is version 2.00A and it should look like this:
If you don’t see this on your screen then visit our web site at www.epson.com and download the Copy
update.
2) Once you have installed the update, test your printer in Copy. If you get an error then go to the
next step.
3) Click the Start button and then click Settings. Select Printers. You can also use Control Panel to
select Printers (Printers and Faxes for Windows XP). In Printers, use the Add Printer Wizard to
add a printer. For Windows 98 and up, you can try the HP LaserJet 4. For Windows 2000 and
XP, the Stylus Photo 750 ESC/P2 works fine. For Windows 95, you’ll need to use an older model
such as the HP LaserJet 3 series. Keep in mind that other models can be used. If one model
doesn’t work then use another one.
4) Follow the on-screen instructions to install the printer. Once completed verify that it is the default
printer.
5) Launch Copy. If the new default printer is compatible, the program will open normally.
6) Click the Device Settings button. This will bring up the Device Settings user interface. In the
Output Device field (the default printer will be listed here), click on the arrow. This will bring up
the Output Device Chooser window. The screen should look like this.
2
7) Change the printer name to the one you want to use and then click OK. Click on the Green
button to start scanning.

Click Finish.

then you have successfully installed the update.
14. The last thing you should do before copying is to turn on the Auto Document
Enhancement.
Note: After installing the Copy Utility 2.00A patch you may find that the Copy Utility produces
copies with a Light gray/blue/pink background. This is because in the Copy Utility 2.00A the
Automatic Document Enhancement feature is off by default. To turn it on, click on the Copy
applet to open the Copy Utility. Select Epson TWAIN 5 at the following window and click “OK”.
Click on the “Image Adjust” button - Auto Document Enhancement is off by default; notice
“Off” is selected and dark gray.
Page 3 of 4
Click on the Auto Document Enhancement button to turn this feature on, notice “On” is
selected now and dark gray.
This will resolve the light gray/blue/pink background issue in Copy Utility 2.00A.
Now click on the large green Copy Button, your image will be scanned and printed. The copy
of your document should look very close to the original with no background colors added.
Note: The Copy Utility was designed to scan and print a copy of a Letter size (8.5” X
11”) document. If Your document is not a full Letter size piece of paper, then the portion
of the scanner’s document mat that is showing will be included as part of your copy.
Some bright white papers can cause a noticeable contrast between the document and
the document mat. As a result the Copy Utility may recognize the exposed document
mat as a having a light blue color. In this case you may still see a light blue background
on your printout where the document mat was showing.
