Choosing a Good Place for Your Scanner
Here are some points to consider:
■
Place the scanner on a flat, stable surface. If the scanner is tilted, it can’t operate
properly.
■
Make sure to place the scanner where you can easily unplug the power cord, and
where your cable can reach your computer.
■
Keep the scanner away from direct sunlight and strong light sources.
■
Be sure there’s enough
room behind the scanner
for the cables, and above
the scanner so you can
fully raise the document
cover.

saffron.book Page 25 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM
Connecting the Scanner to Your Computer
You can connect the scanner to your computer in any of these ways:
■
USB
If you have a Power Macintosh or your computer is running Windows 98, you
can connect the Expression 1600 with the USB cable that came with the scanner.
Windows 98 must be preinstalled on your computer; it cannot be upgraded from
Windows 95. There is no USB support for Windows 95 and Windows NT 4.0.
■
SCSI
If you have a Power Macintosh or your Windows computer has an
ASPI-compliant SCSI 2 board (Adaptec® boards are recommended), you can
connect the scanner with a SCSI 2 cable not more than 19.7 feet long. If you’re
connecting multiple SCSI devices, the total length of the SCSI bus (cables)
should not exceed 9.8 feet. If your computer is running Windows 95 or Windows
NT 4.0, you must use a SCSI connection.
■
IEEE 1394 (FireWire)
If you have the Professional FireWire model of the Expression 1600, or you’ve
purchased the optional IEEE 1394 FireWire scanner interface card, you can
connect the scanner to your Power Macintosh with the IEEE 1394 FireWire cable
that came with your scanner or card. Your Power Macintosh must have a built-in
IEEE 1394 FireWire port or an IEEE 1394 FireWire PCI card, and must be
running Macintosh OS 8.6 or later with FireWire Update 2.1 or later.
Adaptec Power Domain® SCSI boards for the Macintosh are
not compatible with scanners.
See “IEEE 1394 FireWire Scanner Interface Card” on
page 106 for instructions on installing the IEEE 1394 FireWire
scanner interface card in your scanner.
If you install a USB card in your Macintosh and then upgrade
your system to OS 8.6, your USB Manager won’t be installed
and your scanner may not work. To have USB support, you
must perform a full installation of OS 8.6 from a CD-ROM
before you install the card.
25
saffron.book Page 26 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM
Connecting to a USB Interface
With the USB interface, you can connect or remove your scanner without having to
shut down or restart your computer.
Don’t disconnect or connect the USB cable when the
Expression 1600 is scanning.
Windows 98 must be preinstalled on your computer, not upgraded from
Windows 95. There is no USB support for Windows 95 or Windows NT 4.0.
1. Locate the USB cable that came with your scanner.
2. Connect the square end of the USB
cable to the scanner’s USB port.
3. Connect the flat end of the USB
cable to your computer’s USB port
or USB hub port.
If your scanner and computer are both powered on, you see the Add New Hardware
Wizard (Windows) or a message that your scanner driver needs to be installed
(Macintosh). Continue with the instructions in “Installing the Windows Software” on
page 30 or “Installing the Macintosh Software” on page 47.
If you’re using a USB hub, connect the scanner to a first tier
hub, which is the hub closest to the computer. If the scanner
doesn’t work with the hub, connect it directly to a USB port
on your computer.
26
saffron.book Page 27 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM
Connecting to a SCSI Interface
Before you connect the scanner, you must have an ASPI-compliant SCSI 2
interface board installed in your computer (Adaptec SCSI 2 interface boards are
recommended). Some computers come with a SCSI 2 board preinstalled; check your
computer documentation.
Adaptec Power Domain SCSI boards for the Macintosh are
not compatible with scanners.
If you purchased the board as an option, follow the manufacturer’s instructions to
install both the board and its driver.
You may also need to change the
scanner’s SCSI ID setting before you
connect it to your computer. If you have
another SCSI device that uses SCSI ID 2,
turn the scanner off and turn the SCSI
ID switch on the back of the scanner to a
new number.
SCSI ID switch
Choose a number that doesn’t conflict with the ID number of
other SCSI devices. Don’t use SCSI ID 0, 1, or 7. If your
Macintosh has a built-in CD-ROM, don’t use SCSI ID 3. Also,
only use the asterisk (*) setting when you need to transport
the scanner.
Follow these steps to connect the scanner to a SCSI interface:
1. Make sure the scanner and computer are turned off. (The scanner is off when the
P Operate button is out and the ERROR and READY lights are off.)
27
saffron.book Page 28 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM
2. Squeeze the lock releases on the lock
connector end of your SCSI cable, and
then plug the cable into either SCSI
connector on the back of the scanner.
The cable is secure when both connector
locks snap in.
3. Connect the pin end of the SCSI cable
to the SCSI port on your computer, or to another SCSI device in the chain.
Tighten the screws to secure the cable.
If you’re connecting multiple SCSI devices, the total length
of the SCSI bus (cables) should not exceed 9.8 feet (three
meters); otherwise the system may not work properly. If you
are connecting the scanner directly to your computer, use a
cable no more than 19.7 feet (six meters) long.
Don’t use an external terminator.
4. Locate the SCSI terminator switch at the rear of the scanner.
If the scanner is your only SCSI device, or if it’s the last device in a SCSI chain,
leave the terminator switch turned ON.
If you’ve connected your scanner in the
middle of a SCSI chain, turn the
terminator switch OFF.
5. Plug in the power cables for your
computer, scanner, and other external
SCSI devices.
Continue with the instructions in “Installing
the Windows Software” on page 30 or
“Installing the Macintosh Software” on
page 47.

Connecting to an IEEE 1394 FireWire Interface
If you have the Professional FireWire model of the Expression 1600, or if you’ve
purchased the optional IEEE 1394 FireWire scanner interface card, you can connect
the scanner to your Macintosh using an IEEE 1394 FireWire interface. Your
Macintosh must have a built-in IEEE 1394 FireWire port or an IEEE 1394 FireWire
PCI card.
See “IEEE 1394 FireWire Scanner Interface Card” on
page 106 for information about system requirements and
instructions on installing the card. See page 93 for information
about ordering the card.
The IEEE 1394 FireWire scanner interface card has two cable connectors. You can
use either one to connect the scanner directly to your computer. At the same time,
you can use the second connector to connect other IEEE 1394 FireWire devices in a
daisy chain or tree configuration. You can also connect the scanner to another IEEE
1394 FireWire device so that it’s the last IEEE 1394 FireWire device in a chain
connected to your computer.
Neither your scanner nor your computer has to be off when you connect the cable.
However, be careful not to connect or disconnect the cable when the scanner is in use.
Follow these steps to connect the scanner:
1. Locate the cable that came with the card.
Connect one end of the cable to the
IEEE 1394 FireWire port on the card.
2. Connect the other end of the cable to the
IEEE 1394 FireWire port on your computer
or on another IEEE 1394 FireWire device.
Continue with “Installing the Macintosh
Software” on page 47.

How to Scan
This section gives you an overview of the scanning
process and some tips for getting the best scan. It
also includes step-by-step scanning instructions.
Scanning Tips
Getting the best scan possible depends on several factors, including the quality of your
original and the resolution you select. The better your original is, the better your scan
will be. While you can make some color corrections in your scanning software, you’ll
need to do major color photo retouching in a program such as Adobe Photoshop.
Selecting Resolution
Resolution refers to how many dots per inch (dpi) or dots per centimeter (dpcm) your
image contains. The best resolution for a scanned image depends on the type of image
you’re scanning and your final output device.
As a rule of thumb for most images except line art, use a scanning resolution that is
approximately one third of your output resolution. For example, use a scanning
resolution up to 100 dpi with a 300 dpi laser printer, and up to 200 dpi with a
600 dpi laser printer. For 1440 dpi ink jet printers, such as the EPSON Stylus®
COLOR series, use a scanning resolution of up to 300 dpi. Try a scanning resolution
of 240 dpi for 720 dpi printing.
53
saffron.book Page 54 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM
Keep the following in mind when you choose a resolution:
■
The higher the resolution you select, the larger the resulting image file will be. For
example, an 8.5 × 11-inch original scanned at 300 dpi can produce a 24MB file.
The same original scanned at 72 dpi creates only a 1.3MB file. Large files take
longer to process and print, so consider the practical limitations of your computer
system and hard disk drive when selecting a resolution. To keep your file size
manageable, select the lowest possible resolution that gives acceptable quality. (If
your final output is for on-screen viewing, you can scan at 72 dpi and reduce your
file size.)
■
If you need to scan at a higher resolution, you can reduce the size of the resulting
image file by scanning only part of the image. For information about selecting
part of an image, see “Making and modifying marquees” in your electronic
EPSON Expression 1600 Software Reference Guide.
Scaling (Resizing) Images
If you plan to enlarge your image, it’s better to enlarge it by scanning at a higher
resolution rather than adjusting resolution in your application. Each time you modify
an image, you lose some image quality.
Keep in mind when you enlarge a small photo, such as 35 mm slides or wallet-size
photos, you’ll need to scan at a high enough resolution to retain your image quality,
but not so high that your file size is too large to be efficient.
Scanning Color Images
If the colors in your scanned image don’t match those in your original document, try
experimenting with the Unsharp Mask setting. Click the Destination button in the
EPSON TWAIN Pro main window to display the Destination window, and then
select or deselect Unsharp Mask.
To reproduce the most accurate colors, use MonacoEZcolor to create color profiles
for your scanner, printer, and monitor. Then use an ICC-compliant color
management application like Adobe Photoshop 5.0 to apply the profiles. (Make sure
to turn off color management in your scanner software.) See the MonacoEZcolor User
Guide for details.

You can use batch scanning to save time. Batch scanning allows you to scan several
images at once, or the same image with several different settings.
For more information, see “Making and modifying marquees” in your electronic
EPSON Expression 1600 Software Reference Guide.
Using the Dual Focus Mechanism
The Expression 1600’s Dual Focus mechanism eliminates the Newton ring effect
when you’re using the transparency unit. The focus is automatically set to 2.5 when
the transparency unit is installed and you select TPU for Neg. Film or TPU for Pos.
Film as the Document Source. If you use the film guides, you don’t need to change
the focus setting. If you set your film directly on the scanner’s document table, you
should preview your scan and click the
Focus button on the Preview window to
set the focus position to 0.0. See your electronic EPSON Expression 1600 Software
Reference Guide for more information.

Step-by-Step Scanning Instructions
This section contains step-by-step instructions for scanning an image. Although the
Macintosh interface is shown, Windows steps are the same.
Placing Your Original Document
1. Raise the scanner cover and place your document face down on the document
table. If you’re scanning a transparency, the optional transparency unit should be
installed. (See “Installing the Transparency Unit” on page 95.)
If you have the Professional or Professional FireWire model of the
EPSON Expression 1600, the transparency unit came with your
scanner. If you have the Artist or Special Edition models, you can
order the transparency unit.
2. Position the document so the
horizontal and vertical edges are
carefully aligned with the scales
along the sides of the document
table.
top corner of
document
3. Close the document cover slowly.
Be careful not to move the
document.
You can remove the document cover if you need to scan a
thick item—such as a photo in an album—that doesn’t fit
under the cover. Simply lift the back of the cover straight up.
When you reattach the cover, position the hinges over the
posts at the top of the scanner and push down gently until the
cover clicks into place.
57
saffron.book Page 58 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM
Scanning with EPSON TWAIN Pro
1. Start your host application (for example, Adobe Photoshop 5.0 LE).
2. Select your scanner driver. (Unless you change your source, you only need to do
this step once.)
For example, if you’re running Windows and using Adobe Photoshop 5.0 LE as
your host application, click File, Import, Select TWAIN_32 Source. In the
Select Source dialog box, select EPSON TWAIN Pro(32-bit). Then click Select.
If you have a Macintosh, click File, Import, Twain Select. In the Select a source
dialog box, choose EPSON TWAIN Pro and click OK.
The command you choose from the File menu differs from
one host application to another. With other host applications,
you might choose Acquire or Select Source instead of Import.
3. Open the scanner software.
For example, choose Import
from Photoshop 5.0 LE’s
File menu.
In Windows, select
TWAIN_32.
Click to start
scanning.
On a Macintosh, select
TWAIN_Acquire.
Click to display
a preview of
the image.
The EPSON TWAIN Pro
main window appears.
4. Choose the Document
Source, Image Type, and
Destination.
For example, if you’re scanning a photograph, select Flatbed as your Document
Source, 24-bit Color (Std) as your Image Type, and EPSON Stylus Printer
(Photo) as the Destination, if you’re sending the scanned image to an EPSON
inkjet printer. If you’re using the optional transparency unit, select TPU for Neg.
58
saffron.book Page 59 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM

optional automatic document feeder, select Auto Document Feeder as your
Document Source.
5. Click the Preview button.
You see a preview of your scan
in the window that opens.
6. Click the
Auto Locate
button to automatically
define the scan area around
the edges of your image. Or

over any of the eight boxes
around the marquee’s edge
and dragging the box to resize
the marquee.
Click to
define the
scan area
automatically.
A dotted
marquee
frames the
area to be
scanned.
Click the
Auto
Exposure button to
automatically set the

obtain the best settings for your scan. If you’re not satisfied
with the results, see your electronic EPSON Expression 1600
Software Reference Guide for information about adjusting
settings.
If you need to remove color cast from your image, use the
Gray Balance Intensity feature.
7. When you’ve finished making adjustments, click the Scan button.
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.

Network Scanning
You can use EPSON Scan Server and EPSON TWAIN
Pro Network, two applications on your EPSON
Expression 1600 Scanning Tools CD-ROM, to share
your scanner with other users in a small workgroup.
Your network must have a scanner server (the Windows
computer connected to the scanner) and one or more
client computers. Only one client computer at a time
can connect to the scanner server and access the
scanner. However, you can have more than one scanner and scanner server on a
network, so clients can choose which scanner to use.
Here are some other requirements for sharing a scanner:
■
The scanner server must be an IBM/AT compatible computer running
Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.0 (Windows NT 4.0 is
recommended).
■
Client computers can be running Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0,
or Macintosh System 7.6.1 or later.
■
Both the client computers and the scanner server must have a network interface
card installed, and must be running the TCP/IP protocol (see Appendix B for
instructions on installing the TCP/IP protocol).
■
EPSON Scan Server must be installed on the scanner server, and EPSON
TWAIN Pro Network must be installed on client computers.

saffron.book Page 88 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM
Using a Network Scanner
Network scanning involves the following steps:
■
The scanner server must be turned on and running EPSON Scan Server.
■
From the client computer, start EPSON TWAIN Pro 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 Pro Network” on page 90
for instructions.)
■
Choose the Image Type, Resolution, and other settings you want for your scan.
(See Chapter 3, “How to Scan,” for more information about choosing settings.)
■
Place your first image on the document table (or in the optional automatic
document feeder or one of the optional transparency unit’s film guides).
■
Start the scan. Although this can be done from EPSON TWAIN Pro 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. Then you can scan several
images with a single trip to the scanner.
■
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.)
■
When you return to the client computer, your scanned images appear in the host
application’s window. Close EPSON TWAIN Pro Network to end your
connection to the scanner server and allow other client computers to use the
scanner.
Some applications, such as Adobe Photoshop 5.0 LE,
automatically close the client computer’s connection to the
scanner server when you press the ] Start button. You can’t
use the ] Start button to scan multiple images if you’re using
these applications.
88
saffron.book Page 89 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM
Starting EPSON Scan 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.
You can quit EPSON Scan Server at any time. Just click the Exit button on the
EPSON Scan Server dialog box.
Wait for this message
before you exit.
Click to exit.
Before you quit, 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 Pro 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 Pro. EPSON Scan Server disables EPSON
TWAIN Pro.
89
saffron.book Page 90 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM
Starting EPSON TWAIN Pro Network
You connect to the scanner server by starting EPSON TWAIN Pro Network from the
client computer. Follow these steps:
1. Start your host application.
2. Select EPSON TWAIN Pro Network as your source, or scanner driver. (You only
need to do this step once.)
For example, if you’re running Windows and using Presto! PageManager for
EPSON as your host application, choose Select Source from the File menu. In
the Select Source window, choose EPSON TWAIN Pro Network and click
Select.
If you have a Macintosh and are using Presto! PageManager for EPSON, click
File, Select Source, then Select TWAIN Source. In the Select a source
window, select the EPSON TWAIN Pro Network icon and click OK.
The command you choose from the File menu differs from
one host application to another. With other host applications,
you might choose Import or Select TWAIN_32 Source, for
example.
3. Start EPSON TWAIN Pro Network.
If your host application is Presto! PageManager for EPSON, choose Acquire
from the File menu. When EPSON TWAIN Pro Network starts, the EPSON
TWAIN Pro Network main menu appears and you connect to the scanner server.
Since the settings and controls for EPSON TWAIN Pro Network are the same as
those for EPSON TWAIN Pro, see “Scanning with EPSON TWAIN Pro” on
page 58 for general scanning instructions. For more detailed information about
settings, see the EPSON Expression 1600 Software Reference Guide on your

To keep your scanner operating at its best, you should clean it periodically. Before
cleaning, unplug the power cord.
Use a soft cloth to clean the outer case with mild detergent dissolved in water.
If the document table glass gets dirty, clean it with a soft, dry cloth. If the glass is
stained with grease or other hard-to-remove material, use a small amount of glass
cleaner on a soft cloth to remove it. Wipe off any remaining liquid with a dry cloth.
Be sure there’s no dust on your document table. Dust can cause white spots to appear
in your scanned image.
111
saffron.book Page 112 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM
Always unplug the scanner before cleaning.
Never use a harsh or abrasive brush or cleaning product to
clean the document table. A damaged glass surface can
decrease the scanning quality.
Never use alcohol, thinner, or corrosive solvent to clean the
scanner. These chemicals can damage the scanner
components as well as the case.
Be careful not to spill liquid into the scanner mechanism or
electronic components. This could permanently damage them.
Don’t spray lubricants inside the scanner.
Never open the scanner case. If you think repairs or
adjustments are necessary, consult your dealer or contact
EPSON.
Unplug the scanner and refer servicing to qualified service
personnel if the power cord or plug is damaged, if liquid has
entered the scanner, if the scanner has been dropped or the
case damaged, or if the scanner does not operate normally or
exhibits a distinct change in performance.

Problems and Solutions
If you’re having problems, this section answers some of the most common questions.
For additional software troubleshooting tips, see your electronic EPSON Expression
1600 Software Reference Guide.
Setup Problems
■
If your scanner is connected to a
USB hub, try connecting it
directly to the computer’s USB
port.
■
Check the Plug and Play option
for your computer; it should be
active (Windows 95 or 98 only).
■
If you have a SCSI connection,
turn off both your scanner and
computer. Then turn on your
scanner before you turn on the
computer.
■
If you have a SCSI connection,
make sure your SCSI board is
installed correctly.
■
If the SCSI board is found,
but not the scanner, check
the SCSI terminator and ID.
Make sure the SCSI ID doesn’t
conflict with another SCSI device.
■
If you’ve replaced your SCSI
board or changed the SCSI ID,
you may need to uninstall and
reinstall your scanner software. See
the instructions beginning on
page 125.
Your system doesn’t recognize the
scanner . . .
■
■
■
Check your cable connections. If
your cable is securely connected to
both the scanner and computer,
try another cable. If you have a
USB connection, use an EPSON
USB cable. If you have a SCSI
connection, try using an
ASPI-compliant Adaptec SCSI 2
cable, and be sure to restart your
computer after you change the
cable.
The USB connection only
supports a Macintosh or Windows
98 system. Windows 98 must be
preinstalled on your system, not
upgraded from Windows 95.
There is no USB support for
Windows 95 or Windows NT.
Make sure your scanner is on.
If you opened your host
application before you turned on
the scanner, close your application
and reopen it. If that doesn’t
work, restart your system.
115
saffron.book Page 116 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM

your scanner. If you have a SCSI
connection, try using an
ASPI-compliant Adaptec SCSI 2
cable, and be sure to restart your
computer after you change the
cable.
■
Turn off both the scanner and
your computer. Then turn on
your scanner before you turn on
the computer.
■
If you’re connected to a USB hub,
try connecting the cable to the
computer’s USB port.
■
If you have a SCSI connection,
make sure your system is correctly
terminated and there are no
conflicting SCSI IDs.
■
If you’re using a network scanner,
check with your network
administrator to see whether your
computer is on a different router
than the scanner server. If it is,
make sure the router for the
scanner server is configured to
allow traffic from your network.
saffron.book Page 117 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM
■
Uninstall and reinstall your

Installing the TCP/IP
Protocol
To use your EPSON Expression 1600 as a network
scanner, your client computers and scanner server
must have a network interface card, a network
interface card driver, and the TCP/IP protocol
installed. In addition, both the client computers
and the scanner server must have an IP address
assigned.
If you have a newer Macintosh, the TCP/IP protocol was preinstalled on your
computer. Just make sure that TCP/IP is enabled in your Extensions Manager. Your
computer has already been assigned an IP address if you are running a DHCP server,
so no further setup is necessary. Obtain an IP address from your network
adminstrator if you want to enter an address manually.
If you’re running DHCP and WINS, or if you have a DNS
server, you may find it easer to use a host name rather than
an IP address to identify the scanner server. To specify a host
name, you must enable DNS. See your Windows or
Macintosh documentation for instructions.
137
saffron.book Page 138 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM
Installing the TCP/IP Protocol on
Windows 95 and Windows 98
1. Double-click the Network icon in the
Control Panel. If necessary, click the
Configuration tab to display the window
on the right.
2. Check that TCP/IP appears in the list of
installed network components.
If it appears in the list, go to “Assigning an
IP Address” on page 139.
If you don’t see TCP/IP in the list,
continue with the next step.
3. Click the Add button. You see
the screen to the right.
4. Select Protocol from the list and
click the Add button. The
screen to the right appears.
5. Select Microsoft from the
Manufacturers list, and TCP/IP
from the Network Protocols list.
Then click OK.
6. Continue with the instructions
below to assign an IP address.
138
saffron.book Page 139 Tuesday, January 11, 2000 2:32 PM
Assigning an IP Address
If your network is connected to the Internet, ask your Internet provider or IS
department for a formal IP address.
If your network is not connected to the Internet, you can use an IP address in the
following ranges: 10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255, 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255, or
192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255. Use a different IP address for every computer on
your network.
If you use IP addresses in the ranges listed above, you may
need to change them before you connect the network to the
Internet. Check with your network administrator.
If your network uses a DHCP server, you don’t need to obtain an IP address before
beginning this procedure—the server finds one for you.
When you have your IP address, follow the steps below to assign it to your computer.
1. Select TCP/IP on the list of installed
network components on the
Configuration tab, and then click the
Properties button. If necessary, click
the IP Address tab.
