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.)

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 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.

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.

Need installion rom and driver that are necessary


I cannot send you a CD -- I do not have one but I can show you where on the internet you can download the drivers and manuals for this machine. According to Epson's Vista support page even if I had a CD you would still need to download the Vista drivers. (They apparently were released after the CD)

In order to read the manuals you will need Adobe Reader it is free click the Get Adobe Reader button at this link.

Your manuals and software are available here

Epson does not seem to have instructions on how to install the downloaded software.Try installing this the first two in the order they are in the list they are the only ones applicable to windows Vista. (assure you only install downloads for VISTA.
