Installing the Scanner
Scanning with EPSON TWAIN HS
Unlock the carriage before installing the Automatic
Document Feeder by turning the transportation lock
counterclockwise.
Follow the steps below to scan a document using EPSON
TWAIN HS or EPSON TWAIN HS Network.
1. Start your host application (for example, Presto!
PageManager or any other application that supports
EPSON TWAIN HS).
Transporting the Scanner
2. Select your scanner source. (Unless you change your
source, you only need to do this step once.)
When you transport the scanner a long distance or store it
for an extended time, follow the steps below to secure the
carriage.
For example, if you’re running Presto! PageManager as
your host application, click File, then Select Source. In the
Select Source dialog box, select EPSON TWAIN HS. Then
click Select.
1. Turn on the scanner and wait until the carriage moves to
the home position (the left side).
If you’re accessing a network scanner connected to
another computer, select EPSON TWAIN HS Network as
your input source and click OK.
2. Turn off the scanner.
3. Press in and turn the transportation lock clockwise to the
locked position to secure the carriage.
You can’t select EPSON TWAIN HS as your scanner source
if you’re using a network scanner and EPSON Scan Server is
running. EPSON Scan Server disables EPSON TWAIN HS.
For example, choose Acquire from Presto! PageManager’s
File menu.
The EPSON TWAIN HS main window appears.

If the scanner is inoperable, the carriage may not

the right side of the scanner and hold it up until the carriage
comes to rest at the left side. Then turn the transportation
lock to the locked position.

scanning
3. Choose the Document Source and Image Type.
For example, if you’re scanning a photograph, select
Flatbed as your Document Source and 24-bit Color (Std) as
your Image Type.
When using the ADF, choose ADF-Single-sided or ADFDouble-sided as your Document Source.
4. Click the Preview button. You see a preview of your scan
in the window that opens.

If you are scanning multiple pages using the ADF, you do
not need to Preview the document unless you want to
scan only a portion of a document.
Using a Network Scanner
Network scanning involves the following steps:
❏ Two or more computers must be connected on the same
network segment running TCP/IP protocol.
Preview button
❏ The scanner server must be turned on and running
EPSON Scan Server.
Marquee button
❏ From the client computer, start EPSON TWAIN HS
Network to establish a connection to the scanner server.
Only one client computer at a time can connect to the
scanner server. (See “Starting EPSON TWAIN HS
Network” on page 7 for instructions.)
Auto Locate
button
Auto Exposure
button
❏ Choose your settings, and then place your document on
the scanner or in the automatic document feeder.
❏ Start the scan. Although this can be done from EPSON
TWAIN HS Network on the client computer, it may be
more convenient to press the scanner’s Start button or
to start the scan from the scanner server. A progress meter
appears on both the scanner server and client computer as
the image is pre-scanned, then scanned.
5. Choose your scan settings.
❏ If you want to scan more than one image, place your
second image on the document table and press the
scanner’s Start button again. Repeat this step for every
image you want to scan. (The settings you chose for the
first image apply to these images too.)
Click the
Auto Locate button to automatically define
the scan area around the edges of your image. You can
also adjust the scan area by positioning the mouse pointer
over the dotted line around the marquee’s edge and
dragging the box to resize the marquee.
The Start button is only available when you use EPSON
TWAIN HS to access a scanner connected to your computer and
you are running Windows Me, Windows 2000, or Windows 98.
If you are running Windows 95 or Windows NT, the Start
button is disabled.
Click the
Auto Exposure button to automatically set
the highlight and shadow exposures.
Generally it’s a good idea to use the Auto Exposure button to
obtain the best settings for your scan. See your electronic
EPSON GT-30000 Reference Guide for more information
about choosing settings.
❏ When you return to the client computer, your scanned
images appear in the host application’s window. Close
EPSON TWAIN HS Network to end your connection to
the scanner server and allow other client computers to use
the scanner.
If you need to remove color cast from your image, use the
Gray Balance Intensity feature.
6. When you’ve finished making adjustments, click the Scan
button.
When you press the Start button, some applications
automatically close the client computer’s connection to the
scanner server when the scan is finished. You can’t use the
Start button to scan multiple images if you’re using these
applications.
The READY light on the front of the scanner flashes while
it’s scanning. In a few moments, a scanned image is
imported into your host application’s window.
(If the READY light continues to blink, it may indicate an
error condition. See page 4 for more information.)
7. Click Close to close the EPSON TWAIN HS or EPSON
TWAIN HS Network window and return to your
application.
8. If you want, save your image using the Save or Save As
options from the File menu of your host application.

Starting EPSON Scan Server
3. Start EPSON TWAIN HS Network.
If your host application is Presto! PageManager for
EPSON, choose Acquire from the File menu. When
EPSON TWAIN HS Network starts, the EPSON TWAIN
HS Network main menu appears and you connect to the
scanner server.
EPSON Scan Server starts automatically whenever the
scanner server is turned on. When EPSON Scan Server is
running, you’ll see either the EPSON Scan Server dialog
box, or the EPSON Scan Server icon
on the Windows
taskbar. If you need to start EPSON Scan Server manually,
click Start, Programs, EPSON Scan Server, and then select
EPSON Scan Server.
Since the settings and controls for EPSON TWAIN HS
Network are the same as those for EPSON TWAIN HS, see
“Scanning with EPSON TWAIN HS” on page 5 for general
scanning instructions. For more detailed information about
settings, see the EPSON GT-30000 Reference Guide on your
scanner software CD-ROM.
You can quit EPSON Scan Server at any time. Just click the
Exit button on the EPSON Scan Server dialog box.
Starting a Scan
You can start a scan on your network scanner in several
ways. However, the client computer must be running
EPSON TWAIN HS Network to connect to the scanner
server.
❏ You can start EPSON TWAIN HS Network on the client
computer from a host application, make your scan
settings, and click the Scan button on the EPSON TWAIN
HS Network main window. The scanned image is
imported into your host application’s window.
click to exit
Before you exit, make sure no client computers are trying to use
the scanner. Don’t exit if the status area of the EPSON Scan
Server dialog box indicates that you are connecting to a client.
Wait until you see the message Waiting for connection.
If you installed EPSON TWAIN HS on the scanner server so
that you could make a direct connection to the scanner,
remember that you must exit EPSON Scan Server to use
EPSON TWAIN HS. EPSON Scan Server disables EPSON
TWAIN HS.
Starting EPSON TWAIN HS Network
You connect to the scanner server by starting EPSON
TWAIN HS Network on your client computer. Follow these
steps:
1. Start your host application.
2. Select EPSON TWAIN HS Network as your source, or
scanner driver. (You only need to do this step once.)
click to start a scan from
the scanner server
For example, if you’re using Presto! PageManager for
EPSON as your host application, choose Select Source
from the File menu. In the Select Source window, choose
EPSON TWAIN HS Network and click Select.
❏ You can press the Start button on the scanner to send
the scanned image to the client computer that is currently
connected to the scanner server.
The command you choose from the File menu depends on the
host application. With some applications, for example, you
might choose Import or Select TWAIN_32 Source.

❏ You can click the Start button on the EPSON Scan Server
dialog box to send the scanned image to the client
computer currently connected to the scanner server.
click to start a scan from
the scanner server
Stopping a Scan in Progress
You can stop a scan in progress from either the client
computer or the scanner server.
❏ To cancel a scan from the client computer, click the
Cancel button on the Progress bar.
❏ To cancel from the scanner server, click the Cancel button
at the bottom of the EPSON Scan Server dialog box.
❏ To break the connection between the client computer and
the scanner server, click the Stop button on the EPSON
Scan Server dialog box. This closes EPSON TWAIN HS
Network on the client computer and allows other client
computers to connect to the scanner server.
