Welcome
Your EPSON Stylus® Scan 2000 is a color ink jet printer that
scans and copies too. It’s the perfect choice for home, office, or
school. With EPSON’s award-winning ink jet technology, you
can print anything from reports and letters to glossy photos and
greeting cards.
But that’s not all. You can scan your favorite snapshot, then
print out as many copies as you like. You can even scan in a
printed document, and then edit the text on your computer.
With your computer, modem, and an Internet connection, you
can e-mail or fax your images too, or publish them on your
web site.
If you want to make quick color copies, you don’t even have to
turn on your computer. All you have to do is feed in your page
and press the copy button.
Here’s what you get with your EPSON Stylus Scan 2000:
■
Print resolutions up to 1440 × 720 dpi, for photo-quality
color and laser-sharp text even on plain paper
■
EPSON’s unique variable dot Micro Piezo™ technology for
great printing
■
300 × 600 dpi scanning with 36-bit color, to capture
everything from a business card to an 8 × 10 photo or
legal-size document
■
Convenient color copies, with or without your computer
■
Plug-and-play setup on both Windows® and Macintosh®
computers, with USB or parallel connection
■
Easy-to-use software for printing, copying, and scanning
Welcome 1
Print, Copy, and Scan
If you’ve used a printer before, you know how to print with
your EPSON Stylus Scan 2000. It works like any other
computer printer.
Using your EPSON Stylus Scan 2000 for quick copies is the
same as using a photocopy machine: you insert a page, press a
few buttons, and out comes your copy.
When you want to use photos or original artwork in your
creations, you first have to get them into your computer. That’s
where your scanner comes in. You insert your original the same
way you do for copying. But instead of pressing the buttons on
the control panel, you use your software to control the scanner.
You bring the image into your computer, enhance or edit it,
and then place the image into your newsletters and flyers.
2 Welcome
Make sure you follow all the instructions on your Start Here
sheet to set up your EPSON Stylus Scan 2000 and install its
software. Before you use it, turn to Chapter 8 in this guide for
information about system and location requirements, year 2000
readiness, and safety.
Special Features
Your EPSON Stylus Scan 2000 and software make it easy to do

■
Photo Print (Windows only)
You can make extra prints of your favorite photos, starting
with an actual photograph or with an image on your
computer. You can choose the size, number, and format of
your prints, and use special paper to get prints almost as
good as those from film processing.
■
Copy Utility or Personal Copy
Feed in a printed document and use the control panel on
your computer screen to make customized settings for
high-quality copies.
■
OCR
Scanning a document usually creates an image file, even
when you’re working with text. OCR (optical character
recognition) lets you scan a page of words and create a text
file that you can edit in your word processing application.
■
Fax
If you have a modem, you can send and receive faxes with
your EPSON Stylus Scan 2000. Anything that you can
scan in or create on your computer, you can fax. The same
utility lets you receive incoming faxes. Or you can use
eFax™ to receive faxes through your e-mail. See page 104
for more information.
■
E-mail
If you have a modem, an Internet connection, and an
e-mail application, you can scan a page or photo, and send
it to anyone you want.

Printing
Printing with your EPSON Stylus Scan 2000 is a lot like using
any other printer. You can click the Print button (or select Print
from the menu) in any Windows or Macintosh program.
W
To reprint photographs, you can use Photo Print in the
EPSON Smart Panel (Windows only).
No matter how you print, you need to remember two things:
■
Use the right paper.
■
Choose the right printer settings.
If you’ve used other printers before, you may be surprised at
how much difference your paper can make. Plain paper is fine,
but special ink jet papers are even better.
Your printer automatically adjusts itself for each type of paper.
That’s why printer settings are important. They tell your printer
what kind of paper or media you’re using.
So remember to check your printer settings every time you
print. It’s easy to do—just follow the instructions in this
chapter. You’ll find them in these sections:
■
Handling paper
■
Basic printing with Windows
■
Basic printing with a Macintosh
■
Printing with special settings
■
Using Photo Print
Printing 37
Handling Paper
How can you get the best-looking photos, most vivid colors,
and sharpest text? Always use EPSON’s special ink jet papers.
To load paper, slide out the edge guide and place the stack of
paper against the right side of the feeder. Then slide the edge
guide against the paper.
.
Slide the edge guide
against the paper.
If the paper has a
corner cut, make sure
you load it as shown.
Follow these guidelines for loading paper:
38 Printing
■
Always load the printable side (whiter and brighter than the
other side) face up. Some special papers come with a cut
corner to help you load them correctly.
■
Load letterhead or preprinted paper so the top of the paper
feeds into the printer first.
■
Don’t load paper above the arrow on the edge guide.
■
The maximum number of sheets you can load depends on
the type of paper you’re using. See your electronic EPSON
Stylus Scan 2000 Reference Guide for details.
■
Use a support sheet if you find it in the paper package.
■
Return unused paper to the original package as soon as you
finish printing.
Printing on Photo Paper
You can use EPSON Photo Paper to print photographs that
look almost as good as the ones you get from film processing.
EPSON 4 × 6-inch Photo Paper is micro-perforated around the
edges so you can trim your printouts and “bleed” the photo—
extend it to the edge of the paper—on all sides.
Photo Paper is also available in letter, A4 (8.3 × 11.7 inches),
and Panoramic (8.27 × 23.4 inches) sizes.
trim size

size
Keep the following in mind when you use EPSON 4 × 6-inch
Photo Paper:
■
You can load up to 20 sheets of Photo Paper at a time.
■
Before you print, size your photo to 4.25 × 6.25 inches.
■
Choose Photo Paper as the Media Type and select the
correct Paper Size before you print.
■
After you print, fold the paper back and forth along the
perforations and carefully tear off the margins.
See the inside back cover for a list of EPSON papers and
ordering information. For complete instructions on using all of
EPSON’s special ink jet papers, see the electronic EPSON
Stylus Scan 2000 Reference Guide.
Printing on Envelopes
You can print on just about any kind of envelope. Load up to
10 at a time, flap edge first, with the printable side up.

Using Photo Print
The easiest way to print photographs is to use Photo Print on
the EPSON Smart Panel (Windows only). You can print on
special “snapshot-size” paper, create enlargements, or print
several small pictures on one sheet. You’ll never need to order
reprints again.
You start by scanning in one or more pictures or opening
images that are already saved on your computer.

When you scan, you turn pictures and text into digital files on
your computer. Then you can fax, print, or e-mail the files, or
continue working with them in another application, such as
PhotoDeluxe. If you scan text, you can perform OCR (Optical
Character Recognition) to create a file that you can edit in a
word processing application.
This chapter explains how to scan from Presto! PageManager,
then how to use the Presto! PageManager desktop to continue
working on your files. You can use many of the same steps to
scan from other TWAIN-compliant applications, such as
PhotoDeluxe or Photoshop.
Starting Your Scan
Before you begin, make sure the software is installed and your
EPSON Stylus Scan 2000 is set up, connected to your
computer, and turned on.
1. Adjust the edge guides to fit the width of your page or
photo. Feed it into the scanner until you feel a tug.

Faxing
If you have a modem, you can send and receive faxes with your
EPSON Stylus Scan 2000. You can fax anything that you can
scan in or create on your computer.
Depending on your system, you’ll use different utilities and
software for faxing:
■
If you have Windows, you’ll use WinFax and Smart Panel,
software that came with your EPSON Stylus Scan.
■
If you have a Macintosh, you’ll use Presto! PageManager
with the FAXstf or other fax software on your Macintosh.
note
Be sure to send in your
coupon to receive a free
upgrade to Smart Panel
for Macintosh. The
coupon is also available
on the EPSON web site
at www.epson.com.
Your EPSON Stylus Scan 2000 CD-ROM also contains eFax,
software that lets you receive faxes through your e-mail. See
pages 104 to 105 for instructions on installing and using eFax.
Before you begin, make sure the software is installed and your
EPSON Stylus Scan is set up, connected to your computer, and
turned on. You also need to have a modem installed in or
connected to your computer and connected to a phone line.
If you have an external modem, make sure it’s turned on too.
Faxing with Windows
Your EPSON Stylus Scan works with your Smart Panel
software and the modem in your computer to send and receive
faxes. In addition, all incoming faxes can be automatically
printed or stored on your hard disk.
Using the Scan to Fax utility on the Smart Panel is just like
using a fax machine on your computer screen. Follow the
instructions in this section for sending a fax, receiving faxes, and
customizing Scan to Fax.

note
To use eFax, you need
an active e-mail
account, and you need
to be able to receive
e-mail from outside your

eFax works in both
Windows and
Macintosh
environments.
Because it lets you receive faxes through your e-mail, eFax does
away with the need for a dedicated phone line for your faxes.
You don’t have to worry about missing faxes when your
computer is off or when you’re connected to the Internet. Your
friends and associates send you faxes by dialing your eFax
number on their fax machines, just as if you had a fax machine.
And if you want to send faxes as well as receive them, you can
sign up for eFax Plus.
1. Insert the EPSON Stylus Scan 2000 CD-ROM in your
drive.
2. If you’re using Windows, double-click
My Computer.
3. Double-click the EPSON SS2000 CD-ROM icon.
4. Open the eFax folder and double-click faxoffer.exe
(Windows) or Free Fax Offer (Macintosh). The
MicroViewer opens and displays this offer:
Click here to register for eFax.
5. Click Signup Today. Your browser opens and connects
you to the eFax.com website, where you can register for
eFax. In a few days, you’ll receive a confirmation e-mail
from eFax.com that includes your fax number and PIN.

6. If you want to sign up for eFax Plus or eFax Toll-Free, click
their hot links and follow the instructions on the screen.
7. Close the sign-up document when you’re finished.
note
eFax is a service fully
provided by eFax.com.
All questions should be
directed to
www.eFax.com.
Share your fax number with others and print it on your business
cards. Faxes will arrive as attachments to your e-mail messages.
To read them, just open the attachments.
You can use your PIN number to access your account on the
eFax.com web site (http://www.eFax.com). Your account
includes an Activity Log that stores up to 10MB. When the
Activity Log is full, the oldest faxes are automatically deleted.
If you want to manage your account so that you don’t lose
important faxes, you can delete faxes, forward them to others,
or resend them to yourself.

Maintaining Your
EPSON Stylus Scan
This chapter describes the most common maintenance
procedures you’ll need to perform to keep your EPSON Stylus
Scan working at its best. For more details, see your electronic
Reference Guide.
You’ll find instructions in this chapter for the following:
■
Running a cleaning cycle
■
Replacing ink cartridges
■
Aligning the print head
■
Cleaning the EPSON Stylus Scan
■
Transporting the EPSON Stylus Scan
Running a Cleaning Cycle
If your printouts are light or have gaps in the image, you may
need to run a cleaning cycle. This unclogs the print head
nozzles so they can deliver ink properly.
The cleaning process uses ink, so you should run it only if
you’re not getting good print quality. You can run the cleaning
cycle using either:
■
The Head Cleaning utility (with your EPSON Stylus Scan
connected to a local port, not over a network)
■
The control panel buttons on the EPSON Stylus Scan
Maintaining Your EPSON Stylus Scan 107
Using the Head Cleaning Utility

cartridges may be old or damaged, and you may need
to replace them. See page 115 for instructions.
note
To maintain print
quality, make sure you
turn on your EPSON
Stylus Scan at least once
a month.
110 Maintaining Your EPSON Stylus Scan
Replacing Ink Cartridges
When the B black or A color ink out light flashes, that
cartridge is low on ink. This is a good time to make sure you
have a new cartridge. When the light stays on, the cartridge is
empty and you need to replace it. You can’t print if either ink
cartridge is empty.
W
When one of your cartridges runs out of ink, you’ll see a
message in the Progress window on your screen (Windows
only). Click the How To button on the screen, and then follow
the instructions to replace your cartridge.
Cartridges should be available where you bought your printer.
You can also order them from EPSON Accessories at
(800) 873-7766 (U.S. sales only). In Canada, please call
(800) 873-7766 for dealer referral.
caution
To ensure good results,
use genuine EPSON
cartridges and do not
refill them. Other
products may cause
damage to your printer
not covered by EPSON’s
warranty.
Use these EPSON ink cartridges within six months of installing
them and before the expiration date on the package:
■
EPSON black ink cartridge: S020189
■
EPSON color ink cartridge: S020191
If you need to replace an ink cartridge before the lights flash
(because the ink is too old, for example) follow the instructions
in “Replacing an Outdated Ink Cartridge” on page page 115.
Maintaining Your EPSON Stylus Scan 111
Replacing the Color Ink Cartridge
You can replace a cartridge when the A color ink out light is
flashing, or when it stays on. Follow these steps:
1. Remove the new ink cartridge from its package.
caution
2. Remove only the yellow part of the tape seal on top. Don’t
pull off the blue portion or try to remove the clear seal
underneath the cartridge.
You must remove the
yellow tape from the top
of the cartridge or you
will permanently
damage it. Do not
remove the clear seal
from the bottom of the
cartridge, or ink will
leak out.
3. Lower the output tray, then open the front cover.

Problems and Solutions
Here are some basic troubleshooting tips if you have any
problems setting up your EPSON Stylus Scan, installing
software, or getting good quality printouts or scanned images.
Since copying involves both printing and scanning, look for
copy problems in both “Solving Printing and Copying
Problems” on page 124 and “Solving Scanning and Copying
Problems” on page 132.
Solving Problems Setting Up the EPSON
Stylus Scan or Installing Its Software
The printer started making noise after you installed the
ink cartridges.
■
The first time you install ink cartridges, the printer must
charge its ink delivery system for a few minutes. Please
wait until charging is finished (the Ppower light stops
flashing) before you turn off the printer. Otherwise, you
will waste ink.
■
Make sure the ink cartridge clamps are locked down
completely and that no packing material remains in the
printer.
The printer has finished charging the ink cartridge,
but the Ppower light is still flashing.
122 Solving Problems
■
Make sure the ink cartridge clamps are locked into place.
■
Make sure all packing material has been removed from the
printer.
■
If the printer is not moving or making noise, but the light is
still flashing after 5 minutes have passed, turn the printer
off. If the light is still flashing when you turn it back on,
contact your dealer or see “Where To Get Help” on
page 137.
You’re having problems installing the software.
■
Make sure your EPSON Stylus Scan is turned on and the
cable is securely connected to the printer and computer.
■
Make sure you’ve closed all other applications, including
any screen savers. Then try installing the software again,
following the instructions on the Start Here sheet.
When you connect to a USB port on a Windows
computer, several USB devices are recognized and
installed.
This is the correct installation procedure. Your EPSON
Stylus Scan includes a printer, scanner, and internal USB hub.
Even though the process may seem repetitious, make sure you
don’t cancel out of the installation.
You see the following message: Setup cannot find the
Windows printer files needed to set up the WinFax
printer driver.
Remove the EPSON CD-ROM and insert your Windows 95
or Windows 98 CD-ROM. Then click OK. If you don’t have a
Windows CD-ROM, locate the Windows driver files on your
hard disk drive.
You see the following message: Please insert your
WinFax Basic Edition installation media.
Remove your Windows CD-ROM and insert the EPSON
Stylus Scan 2000 CD-ROM. Then click OK.
When you connect it to the pass-through port on your
Zip® drive, your EPSON Stylus Scan doesn’t work.
The EPSON Stylus Scan is not designed to work on this type of
port. You must remove the Zip drive and connect it to a
different port. (You may need to install a second parallel port.)
Solving Problems 123
Connect the EPSON Stylus Scan directly to your computer’s
built-in parallel port. Do not use a switch box. You can also
connect the EPSON Stylus Scan to your USB port
(Windows 98 only).
After you use your EPSON Stylus Scan with a parallel
connection, your Zip drive doesn’t work when you
reconnect it to the same parallel port.
You may need to reinstall your Zip drive software. To avoid this
problem, you can disable the Zip drive in your Windows
Device Manager before you connect the EPSON Stylus Scan.
See your Windows Help for more information.
You’re using the parallel port.
For maximum print speeds, enable ECP/DMA mode on your
computer’s parallel port. See your computer documentation or
the manufacturer for instructions.
You’re printing over a network.
See your electronic Reference Guide for computer configuration
instructions.

Important Safety Instructions
Before using your EPSON Stylus Scan 2000, read the following
safety instructions to make sure you use it safely and effectively:
■
Be sure to follow all warnings and instructions marked on
the EPSON Stylus Scan.
■
Turn off and unplug the EPSON Stylus Scan before
cleaning. Clean with a damp cloth only. Do not spill liquid
on the EPSON Stylus Scan.
■
Do not block or cover the openings in the case or insert
objects through the slots.
■
Use only the type of power source indicated on the label.
■
Connect all equipment to properly grounded power
outlets. Avoid using outlets on the same circuit as
photocopiers or air control systems that regularly switch on
and off.
■
Do not let the power cord become damaged or frayed.
note
Always turn the printer
off using the Ppower
button. Don’t switch off
the power strip, or
unplug the printer until
the power light is off.
Notices 141
■
If you use an extension cord with the EPSON Stylus Scan,
make sure the total ampere rating of the devices plugged
into the extension cord does not exceed the cord’s ampere
rating. Also, make sure the total ampere rating of all devices
plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall
outlet’s ampere rating.
■
Except as specifically explained in this manual, do not
attempt to service the EPSON Stylus Scan yourself.
■
Unplug the printer and refer servicing to qualified service
personnel under the following conditions:
If the power cord or plug is damaged; if liquid has entered
the printer; if the printer has been dropped or the case
damaged; if the printer does not operate normally or
exhibits a distinct change in performance. Adjust only those
controls that are covered by the operating instructions.
Ink Cartridge Safety Instructions
142 Notices
■
Install the ink cartridge immediately after you remove it
from its foil package. Leaving the cartridge unpacked for a
long time before use may result in reduced print quality.
■
Do not put your hand inside the EPSON Stylus Scan or
touch the cartridge during printing.
■
Under normal circumstances, ink will not come out of the
cartridge. If it does get on your skin, wash it off with soap
and water. If it gets in your eyes, flush them immediately
with water.
■
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children.
■
Do not dismantle the ink cartridges or try to refill them.
This could result in damage to the print head.
■
Once you install an ink cartridge, do not open the clamp or
remove the cartridge except to replace it with a new one.
The cartridge may become unusable otherwise.
■
Do not use an ink cartridge beyond the date printed on the
cartridge package. For best results, use up the ink cartridges
within six months of installing them.
■
Do not shake an ink cartridge; this can cause leakage.
■
Do not move the print head by hand; otherwise you may
damage the printer.
■
Before transporting the EPSON Stylus Scan, make sure the
print head is capped in the far right position and the ink
cartridges are in place.

covered by this limited warranty statement, if purchased and used in the United States or Canada, conforms to the
manufacturer’s specifications and will be free from defects in workmanship and materials for a period of one year
from the date of original purchase. EPSON also warrants that the consumable ink cartridges enclosed with the
product will perform to the manufacturer’s specified usage, which usage may expire before the expiration of the
limited warranty for the EPSON product.
What Epson Will Do To Correct Problems: Should your EPSON product prove defective during the warranty
period, please call the EPSON Connection at (562) 276-4382 (U.S.) or (905) 709-2567 (Canada) for warranty
repair instructions and return authorization. An Epson service technician will provide telephone diagnostic service
to determine whether the unit requires repair. If service is needed during the warranty period, Epson will, at its
option, exchange or repair the unit, without charge for parts or labor. If Epson authorizes sending a replacement
unit in exchange for the defective unit, Epson will ship the replacement product, freight prepaid. You are
responsible for securely packaging the defective unit and returning it to Epson within five (5) working days of

event that you fail to return the original product. If your product is being repaired, Epson will direct you where to
send the unit. You will be responsible for packing the product and for shipping costs to and from the Epson
authorized service center. When warranty service involves the exchange of the product or of a part, the item
replaced becomes Epson property. The exchanged product or part may be new or refurbished to the Epson
standard of quality. Exchange products and parts assume the remaining warranty period of the product covered by
this limited warranty. For all warranty service, you must provide proof of the date of original purchase.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty covers only normal use in the United States and Canada. This
warranty does not cover damage to the EPSON product caused by parts or supplies not manufactured, distributed
or certified by Epson. This warranty does not cover ink cartridges or third party parts, components, or peripheral
devices added to the EPSON product after its shipment from Epson, e.g., dealer or user-added boards or
components. Epson is not responsible for warranty service should the Epson label or logo or the rating label or
serial number be removed or should the product fail to be properly maintained or fail to function properly as a
result of misuse, abuse, improper installation, neglect, improper shipping, damage caused by disasters such as fire,
flood, and lightning, improper electrical current, software problems, interaction with non-Epson products, or
service other than as authorized by Epson. If a claimed defect cannot be identified or reproduced in service, you
will be responsible for costs incurred.
THE WARRANTY AND REMEDY PROVIDED ABOVE ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL
OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SOME LAWS

WARRANTY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY.
In Canada, warranties include both warranties and conditions.
Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts and some jurisdictions do not
allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions
may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have other rights which vary from
