How do you scan a slide on an epson 2580 scanner? It's scanning like a photograph not a slide.


Hi,

You need the slide attachment, Read the Manual by clicking below.

Epson Manual

And the adapter should be included in the box which you purchased

I am using the Epson Perfection V700 photo scanner to scan dental xrays. Sometimes the xrays come out perfect, other times I get streaks across the image. Sometimes the streaks are colored, othertimes...


You have to use the "FILM AREA GUIDE" included with the scanner. This black plastic guide leaves a small area at the top of the glass open so that the scanner can calibrate itself at the start of each scan. Use the guide or leave at least 8mm between the top of your film and the top of the scanner glass.

Epson perfection 2580 scanner will not start. Programs installed w/cd. Epson updates added. Just says" scanner can not start"


The first thing to try: a new USB cable and a different port. (If you are using a hub, try directly connecting to the computer). What does the device manager say about the scanner? (In Windows, access from the Control Panel > Hardware. Exact directions depend on the OS version.)

Check the transport lock on the bottom of the scanner - do not put the scanner on its side when you check the lock.

Make sure the scanner was on and had already warmed up (stopped blinking) before you tried to start the scanner software (either by the buttons or from the scanner). You may want to reboot the computer (in case the computer thinks one program has locked access to the scanner).

I hope this helps.

(scanners require two-way communication with the computer and a bad cable will stop the scan even when the computer sees the scanner and the software installed without a problem.)

I have an epson 2580 it now produces somewhat


The only way you're going to know if it's the scanner or the driver for sure is to install it on say an XP machine and see what results you get. If it's still dark, it's the scanner, if not, it's the driver.

File settings dialog box is too high on screen to read, doesn't drag down


Go to the display properties of your computer and change the resolution.

How to scan a slide


Hi Arlene,

Have a look here:

http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/per248/per248bb.pdf

This is the quick reference card that would have been supplied with the scanner, scroll through the information to page 5 which tells you how to scan film or slides.

If you want the full manual and information then have a look here:

I hope that helps.

Scanning red and green over image! black and white, and color art prints. can i adjust something?


Had the same on my Epson Perfection 1650. I was about to throw it out but decided to take a look inside. Unscrewed and took the top off (with glass bed), then unscrewed the area that houses the scanner light and a set of three mirrors, cleaned with a lens brush the mirrors although did not see any more than one spec. Put it all back together and now it works great. not sure what I fixed, but it IS fixed. may have been put together badly in the factory as this problem happened soon after purchase. I may have knock something out of place at some point. Anyway you may be lucky too!
