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.

published system requirements for supported interface connectivity. For more information on
Windows and Macintosh Interface support please refer to Microsoft’s online Knowledge base at
rd
www.microsoft.com or Apple’s web site at www.apple.com. For information on add-in 3 party

Series Scanners and the Stylus CX 3200/5200 all-in-one series
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.

Perfection 1260/1660/2400/3200 Series, Stylus CX3200/5200
Scan to Email Supported Applications for EPSON Smart Panel v. 2.5A/2.6A
Description of issue:
This bulletin was created to inform users of a typographical error in the table of supported email applications in the Scan to E-mail utility for Epson’s Smart Panel 2.5A and 2.6A. Smart
Panel 2.5A supports the Perfection 1260/1660/2400/3200 series scanners. Smart Panel 2.6A
supports the Stylus CX3200/5200. The table can be found by clicking the Help file (?) icon on
Smart Panel’s main user interface screen.
According to the Table of supported e-mail applications in the Scan to E-mail Help file – AOL
appears to be a supported application. However, this program is NOT supported. Customers
will find that they can't get AOL to register as a valid Scan to E-mail application.
Reason:
The listing for supported AOL versions under Windows and Mac OS 8.x, 9.x is incorrect. It
currently reads "v" which indicates for AOL. It should be an "x", as it does NOT support AOL
(see screen shot illustration on next page). The Scan to Email utility only supports MAPI
compliant e-mail applications, AOL is a web based e-mail and is therefore not supported.
Note: In the following table, "v" = Version, and "x" = Not supported
Page 1 of 3
Below, is some additional information on AOL support, taken from NewSoft's Inc. Support web
site, URL = http://www.newsoftinc.com/
Q: Can Scan to E-mail support AOL/MSN mail?
A: Smart Panel does not support web-based mail. You need to use a MAPI compliant e-mail
programs to send a new e-mail in Scan to E-mail. (Please refer to the supported e-mail
programs <ESP25-Win-0027.htm>)
