Epson Fluid Mount Option
The Epson fluid mount option lets you take full advantage of your scanner’s capability for high-resolution
imaging. When used with a commercial mounting fluid (not included), it holds your film flat to maintain a
consistently sharp focus, helps eliminate Newton rings, reduces grain, and reduces the appearance of
scratches on silver-based negatives.
33
To use the Epson fluid mount, you need to obtain the following commercially available supplies:
• Scanner mounting fluid
• Scanner mounting film (clear Mylar polyester film)
Caution: Scanner mounting fluid is highly flammable; keep away from sources of heat, flame, or sparks.
Mounting fluid contains harmful solvents. Avoid contact with the eyes and skin and always work in a wellventilated area.
Carefully read and follow all safety instructions provided by the manufacturer, including recommended
procedures for handling and use. The proper handling and use of third-party scanner mounting fluids
and the understanding of all potential risks is solely the customer's responsibility. Epson makes no
claims nor assumes responsibility for any damage, risks, or potential health and safety issues that may
result from the use thereof.
Using the Epson Fluid Mount Option
Parent topic: Placing Film or Slides on the Scanner
Using the Epson Fluid Mount Option
You can scan film up to 5 × 9 inches (127 × 229 mm) with the optional Epson fluid mount.
1. Cut a sheet of clear mounting film to fit within the frame of the fluid mount tray. The sheet must be
large enough to cover the film you’re going to scan.
34
2. Set the Epson fluid mount guide on your work table. Then place the fluid mount tray on top of the
guide.

Grid
Note: Use the grid to align your film while mounting it on the tray. The grid indicates the optimal area
for 6400 dpi scanning.
35
3. Place a drop or two of mounting fluid on the glass tray where you want to mount your film. Only a few
drops are needed to mount a six-frame 35-mm strip.
Note: You need to work quickly so the mounting fluid doesn’t evaporate.
4. Place your film over the wet area. Use the grid to align your film.
5. Apply a small amount of fluid to the top of your film.
6. Place the clear mounting film on top. Use a lint-free cloth, roller, or gloved hands to press down on
the film and then outward toward the edges to remove trapped air bubbles.
36
7. Open the scanner cover and remove the document mat, if necessary.
37
8. Lift the fluid mount tray off the guide and place it on the scanner. Orient it so the narrow window of
the tray is toward the back of the scanner. Do not block the window.
9. Close the scanner cover.
10. Start Epson Scan and select Professional Mode as the mode setting.
11. Select Film (with Film Holder) as the Document Type.
38
12. Select the Film Type, Image Type, and Resolution settings you want to use.
Note: You can select up to 6400 dpi for the best image quality.
13. Click the Preview button to preview your images.
Note: Make sure the Normal tab is selected in the preview window.
14. Select the scan area for each photo individually, being careful to select only the image itself and not
the surrounding area. Then make any desired image adjustments before scanning.

Scan Resolution Guidelines
If you plan to enlarge a scanned image so you can print it at a larger size, you may need to increase the
resolution from the default resolution set by Epson Scan. Follow these guidelines to determine the
resolution setting you need:
• You will enlarge the image as you scan it.
If you will enlarge the image using Epson Scan's Target Size setting, you do not need to increase the
Resolution setting.
66
• You will scan the image at its original size but enlarge it later in an image-editing program.
Increase Epson Scan's Resolution setting in your scan. Increase the resolution by the same amount
you will increase the image size to retain a high image quality. For example, if the resolution is 300 dpi
(dots per inch) and you will double the image size later, change the Resolution setting to 600 dpi.
• You will scan the image at 100% or smaller size.
Select Epson Scan's Resolution setting based on how you will use the scanned image:
• Email/view on a computer screen/post on the web: 96 to 150 dpi
• Print/convert to editable text (OCR): 300 dpi
• Fax: 200 dpi

• If you upgraded your operating system but did not reinstall Epson Scan, try reinstalling it.
• If you cannot start Epson Scan in Full Auto Mode, your original may have a very dark or bright
background, or be very large. Try scanning in another Epson Scan mode instead.
• If you are using a TWAIN-compliant program, make sure that the correct product is selected as the
Scanner or Source setting.

Scanning is Slow
If scanning becomes slow, try these solutions:
• Scan your original at a lower resolution, if possible.
• Make sure your system meets the requirements for your operating system. If you are scanning a highresolution image, you may need more than the minimum requirements, such as a Hi-Speed USB port.
If necessary, increase your system's memory.
• If you are running virus protection or other security software, exclude the TWAIN.log files from
monitoring or set the TWAIN.log file as read only. See your virus protection or security software
instructions for details. The TWAIN.log file is saved in the following locations:
• Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\(user name)\Local Settings\Temp
• Windows (other versions): C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Local\Temp
• Deselect Show Texture in Epson Scan, if necessary.
• If you are scanning using DIGITAL ICE Technology, turn off the feature; scanning takes longer using
DIGITAL ICE Technology.

Image is Distorted or Blurry
If a scanned image appears distorted or blurry, try these solutions:
• Make sure your original is not wrinkled or warped. This may prevent the original from laying flat on the
scanner glass.
• Do not move your original or your product during scanning.
• Your product will not operate properly while tilted at an angle. Place it on a flat, stable surface that
extends beyond the base of the product in all directions.
• Adjust these Epson Scan settings (if available) and try scanning again:
• Select the Unsharp Mask setting.
• Adjust the Auto Exposure setting.
• Increase the Resolution setting.
• Click Configuration, select the Color tab, and adjust these Epson Scan settings (if available):
• Continuous Auto Exposure
• Click Recommended Value to return the Auto Exposure Level setting to its default value.
• If the solutions above do not work, move the sliders on the film holder to adjust the height between the
film holder and the scanner glass. You may need to scan at different heights to determine the optimum
90
focal point for your film, which may differ from frame to frame or image to image. Set all the sliders to
the same height. (Their default height is 0.12 inch (3 mm) and indicated by the arrow symbol.)

If your scanned image is too dark, try these solutions:
• Adjust these Epson Scan settings (if available) and try scanning again:
• Auto Exposure
• Brightness
• Histogram Adjustment
• Click Configuration, select the Color tab, and adjust these Epson Scan settings (if available):
• Display Gamma
• Continuous Auto Exposure
• Click Recommended Value to return the Auto Exposure Level setting to its default value.

Back of Original Image Appears in Scanned Image
If an image from the back of a thin original appears in your scanned image, make sure you selected the
correct Image Type setting for your original and select the Text Enhancement setting in Epson Scan.
Parent topic: Solving Scanned Image Quality Problems
Ripple Patterns Appear in an Image
You may see a ripple pattern (called a moiré) in scanned images of printed documents. This is caused
by interference from differing pitches in the scanner's screen and your original's halftone screen. To
reduce this effect, adjust these Epson Scan settings (if available) and try scanning again:
• Select the Descreening setting.
• Select a lower Resolution setting.
Parent topic: Solving Scanned Image Quality Problems
Image is Scanned Upside-Down
Your product scans using the Auto Photo Orientation setting. This setting checks the preview image
for faces, the sky, and other features, and then correctly rotates the photo when it is scanned, if
92
necessary. If your photo is not oriented correctly using this option, deselect the Auto Photo Orientation
setting and scan again.
Note: Auto Photo Orientation will not work when you scan newspapers, magazines, documents,
illustrations, or line art, or images smaller than 2 inches (5.1 cm) on any side.
Parent topic: Solving Scanned Image Quality Problems
Scanned Image Colors Do Not Match Original Colors
Printed colors can never exactly match the colors on your computer monitor because printers and
monitors use different color systems: monitors use RGB (red, green, and blue) and printers typically use
CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black).
Check the color matching and color management capabilities of your computer, display adapter, and the
software you are using to see if they are affecting the palette of colors you see on your screen.
To adjust the colors in your scanned image, adjust these Epson Scan settings (if available) and try
scanning again:
• Change the Image Type setting and experiment with different combinations of the next settings.
• Adjust the Tone Correction setting.
• Adjust the Auto Exposure setting.
• Click Configuration, select the Color tab, and adjust the Display Gamma setting to match your
output device (monitor or printer).
• Select JPEG (*.jpg) or TIFF (*.tif) as the Type setting on the File Save Settings window. Click
Options and select Embed ICC Profile.
• Click Configuration, select the Color tab, and adjust these Epson Scan settings (if available):
• Continuous Auto Exposure
• Click Recommended Value to return the Auto Exposure Level setting to its default value.
• Click Configuration, select the Preview tab, and turn on the Quality Preview setting.

Scan Area is Not Adjustable in Thumbnail Preview
If you cannot adjust the scan area while viewing a Thumbnail preview in Epson Scan, try these solutions:
• Create a scan area by drawing a marquee on your preview image and adjusting it as necessary.
• Adjust the thumbnail cropping area using the Thumbnail Cropping Area slider in preview mode.
93
• Switch to Normal preview mode, if available, and preview your image again.

Scanned Image Edges are Cropped
If the edges of a scanned image are cropped, make sure your original is placed correctly for scanning. If
necessary, move your original away from the edges of the scanner glass slightly.

Film or Slide Scanning Does Not Work
If you have trouble scanning film or slides, try these solutions:
• Remove the document mat from inside the scanner cover whenever you scan film or slides.
• Make sure your film or slides are placed correctly in the correct film holder, and the holder is
positioned correctly on the scanner glass.
• Make sure the Epson Scan Document Type setting (Home Mode) or Film Type setting (Professional

• Make sure the scanner cover is securely connected to the scanner's OPTION port.
• Make sure the transportation lock is unlocked.
