Epson WF 4740 All-in-one wireless scanning issue

Q: Epson WF 4740 All-in-one wireless scanning issue

Hi, folks.

Installed the Epson WF 4740 All-in-on printer last week, added to my home wireless network and it is working fine for printing from all three laptops on the network. Copying and scanning at the printer are working as well. Also scans successfully to a USB key inserted at the printer.

Problem: Menu has option to send scan to a PC on the network. Says Document Capture Pro software must be installed to do this, which it is. But when I try to do this, menu shows "Cannot find computer". The menu has another dropdown to select a job, once the computer has been selected, and on my PC I have a couple saved jobs (scanner settings), but the printer won't detect them. I suspect if it would find my computer on the network, I could select one of my saved jobs, and the scan would end up on my computer.

I can, however, trigger a scan using the Document Capture Pro software on the laptop, and it works fine, including the scan winding up on my PC. However, if my PC is in another room, I have to go to the printer to insert the original, then go back to the PC, start the scan, than go back to the printer to grab the original.

Called Epson tech support, went through the usual steps the "tech" was reading off a script. Finally put me on hold, talked to "senior tech", said I need to make sure port 2968 is open on my wireless router, as this port is used by the printer.

We have Verizon FIOS with a Quantum Gateway wireless router; I can access the router admin controls but don't see how to open the port. And this doesn't make sense to me anyway, since all other wireless operations work, including the scanning when started from the PC.

Any help would be appreciated. Sysinfo below. By the way, I am running Avast Internet Security but sysinfo didn't detect it.

I have an Epson WF 4740 printer. Haven't had it very long!

I had a paper jam which I easily cleared from the back of the printer. But the jam won't go away. I tried unplugging it from the back, I took out the paper trays to make sure I wasn't missing anything, I lifted up the rollers on the back of the printer. I wanted to try taking out the print cartridges but they are all the way over to the left on the machine and I can't take the cartridges out unless it is centered. Not sure this is the problem anyways.

I tried watching a youtube video, but I couldn't find one for the 4740 and the one I did watch had some things that didn't look like it could be done on my printer.

Does anyone have any earthly idea of what I can do? I have looked and looked and I don't see anymore paper jam.

Or a good do it yourself video for this printer.

I have a MacBook Air
OS Mohave 10.13.3

I'm wondering if I uninstalled then reinstalled the printer, maybe that would work??

I'm having a problem with wireless scanning, which I think may be a wireless networking issue.

For about 18 months, I've been using Quicken with two HP Photosmart all-in-ones - a 6180 and a 7280 - in Windows 7. (Quicken allows you to scan documents and attach them to individual transactions.) I recently had to replace the older of the two, the 6180. I tried four devices - an Epson, a Canon and and two HP's - and found that none of them worked with Quicken wirelessly. With other software - PaperPort, MS Office Scanning - I had mixed results.

As they all had their problems, I decided to keep the device I liked best, the Canon Pixma MX882. One of the reasons is that it has a duplexing ADF; also, I found their tech support to be slightly more responsive than Epson's, and HUGELY more so than HP's (which should come as no surprise). In fact, one of Canon's senior tech people spent an hour and a half with me, but he couldn't get it to work.

Here's where I am now - I can only use Quicken with the device through a wired connection, and then only with the WIA driver. I can use the Canon driver (which allows me to use the duplexer) with PaperPort and MS Office, but, again, only wired.

The Canon tech felt it was most likely a Windows 7 security or permissions issue, but couldn't suggest how to get around it. The odd thing is that the older HP's have worked fine (the 7280 continues to do so). I remember when wireless scanning first... Read more

Every time I try to scan, the image turns out a purplish/pink color. Is there any way to fix this?

A:Epson 1250 Scanning Problem

Have you tried troubleshooting on the Epson site?


(From Epson)
Check the image settings of your scanner software, especially data format (bits, pixel, color), gamma correction, and color correction. Try different combinations of these settings.

Check the color matching and color management capabilities of your computer, display adapter, and software. Some computers can change the color palette to adjust the colors on your screen. See your software and hardware manuals for details.

Exact color matching is very difficult. Check your software and monitor documentation for information on color matching and calibration.

Hi all,
I have a (UK model ?) Epson Perfection 4870 Photo scanner.

I have been trying to scan some 6x6 cm black and white negatives but have been having a problem as follows:-

.The negatives were placed in the 120 negative holder and a preview scan carried out.

The Preview appeared to "crop" the negatives to - what appeared to be 6x4.5 cm - i.e. to an upright rectangular format with a portion of the square image missing.

I went to the Epson site and downloaded Twain Driver And Epson Scan Utilities v3.04A+

I then re attempted the scan but - as before - the images were 'cropped' to a rectangular format.

Further research on the internet appeared to indicate that when I go to the Epson scan settings and hit the configuration button, I should see a tab which has the options for setting film format. This tab does not appear. The only tabs which appear under options are: 'Preview', 'Color' and 'Other'.

I am using Windows 10 operating system.

Could any one please help or advise?

Thanks in anticipation.

Hi, all.

I have a relatively new all in one printer (Epson PX800FW) connected wirelessly through a home router, which up until now, has worked okay. Recently it appeared to be creating some kind of conflict with the My Computer folder, so I uninstalled it using advice offered on this forum, and thankfully, the issue promptly resolved itself.

On attempting to reinstall the printer from the official driver disk, I now seem to be able to print again without issue, but not scan. Furthermore, the ink level monitor rarely registers any ink levels. Epson Scan won't open at all, and other scanning software doesn't recognise the printer either.

Any/all help greatly appreciated!

It sounds like a corrupted file, you could unplug the printer, go to Control Panel>Programs & Features, uninstall the printer program, shut down the computer, restart it, then plug in the Epson and let it reinstall itself - Try to let the computer do the work, only offer up the Epson DVD if the computer asks for it.

Can you copy (drag) other documents to your flash drive or just scanned documents?
Some Flash Drives have a security switch on the side that if enabled make the drive Read ONLY, Make sure that is not switched on. Make sure the Flash Drive has enough Free Space to accept any more files. You can also take ownership of the Flash Drive.
All Fails, move all the data off of the Flash Drive and Format (erase) it then move the data back and see if it will accept your Scans.

The issue is simply everytime I've used Etrust virus scan when in Internet explorer (have to be) I minimize it, and when I bring it to normal it's fine, but minimize it and bring it up when it's in the Java folder it freezes, should I do an individual scan on the Java folder to see if it has viruses or just make it a special do not scan folder and un-click it when scanning?

A:Solved: Etrust Viruscan does not like Java Program folder: not virus issue but scanning issue

Hi, Often the applets stored from Java usage will trigger either a detection or an issue as you are seeing from antivirus scanners.

I'd suggest clearing the Java cache: see the attached screenshot, your version may be slightly different but you should be able to see where to look, and what to do. (The attached pic is from a slightly older version of the Java...the steps below are up to date, though)

Control Panel> (Switch to Classic View)> open Java

Find the Settings tab/button, and open that...then find the Delete Files button and click that.
It's just deleting the temporary files left from Java applet usage.

Then, after clearing the cache, run your scan again and see if it works correctly.

I am using a HP Officejet Pro 8600 Model N911a with Windows XP. The printer/scanner is set up wirelessly. Whenever I try to scan a document I get the following error message: Scanner communication cannot be established. Ensure your product is powered on, check the connection, and ensure your network is functioning properly. If these conditions are correct, restart the product and try scanning again. If you are installed using a cable connection (USP or Ethernet), ensure both ends of the cable are secure. If you installed this printer by IP address, then you might need to update the IP address. Use the Update IP Address item in the Start menu entry for this printer. If you are running firewall software, it may be blocking scan communication. Please visit www.hp.com/go/wirelessprinting for help configuring firewall.

I have tried all of their troubleshooting advice, I have run the hp scan doctor, and reconnected everything a restarted everything many times, all with the same result. Printing still works fine. It is just scanning that I can't do.

I've used Avast! for at least 2 years. Beginning 2 weeks ago, I started getting the message "Some files could not be scanned" at the end of a scan. Looking at the log revealed that all the unscanned files are in the system restore folder (C:\System VolumeInformation\_restore\. . .). The error message on each file is "Error: Archive is password protected (42056)". It repeats for EVERY file in the folder, including .png, .js and .gif files as well as the actual RP files.

I tried turning system restore off, which zaps all the restore points, rebooting, then creating a new, single restore point and running a Quick Scan. Did not solve the problem; every file in the folder is still "off limits" to Avast! EXCEPT when I do a boot-time scan (which runs before Windows loads).

Posted the problem on Avast's forum, but got no explanation. I realize it does not mean anything is infected, and it's not critical that Avast be able to scan the RPs, but the fact that it started doing this on 11/14 and now does it for every scan signals that something in the OS or in Avast has changed. Or might this have something to do with the fact that I have SpywareBlaster, a program that "immunizes" some registry items so spyware can't alter them (most HOST files)? Could the last update for that program have contained a change where it now immunizes the RPs?

Anybody have a clue as to what has happened here?

We have just moved back to Germany. My wife has a Power Mac G 5 with a new harddrive and a new 30 in. Cinema display. Hooked it all up last night and everything was great UNTIL we tried to connect the Epson 2200 printer through a USB port. As soon as we connected it the mouse no longer worked and we got an error message that the USB port was draing too much power and would be disabled. Unplugged the printer, mouse comes back. We have the printer on a 200 W transformer--the same one we used for over 2 years when we were in Germany before. Then we had 2 monitors--only thing that has changed is the Cinema HD monitor. So, cant figure this one out. I connected an external hard drive using the same USB port and even a hub and everything still worked. It has to do with the printer. Any thoughts on what to do here?

The twain drivers might be corrupted. If there arent any on the computer the Epson driver will install them, but if corrupted ones are already on the computer the installation wont overwrite them. The basic procedure is to uninstall the driver and do a search for twain and delete any files and folders it finds in the Windows folder only. Then reinstall.

I never get the connected to the internet alert and when I press ctrl+alt+del There are 10 or more ipconfig commands opening up. and winoldap keeps opening up. I tried to uninstall and reinstall 4 different times. I'm not sure what I can do from here. Is this a wireless adapter issue you think or computer issue, anyone have any ideas.
I have tried the netgears site for troubleshooting, and their site is useless.

I do not use my scanner often on my Brother MFC-7840W but it has always worked fine. Until the last time I tried to use! I have been trying to figure it out and at first I assumed it was not connecting or something - although I can print. I came across a suggestion to open Paint and scan from there. Well that works! But that is not an ideal fix for me. I would prefer to open Control Center and scan from there - or Scan using buttons on Printer. I am sure it is an easy thing but I cannot for the life of me figure it out!
Any help would be appreciated!

I just purchased an Epson-2540 all-in-one. My OS is windows 8.1. I have installed windows 8.1 drivers for the Epson.

When I tried to set up wireless connection, checkup report stated " Network is working correctly. *A router/access point channel conflict has been detected".

The printer is unable to connect to the computer via Wi-Fi.

I shall be grateful, for any help to enable me to resolve the router conflict.

We have a Canon imageRunner 1025N multifunction printer/copier/scanner in our office. Up until today, it was directly connected to one of our office computers through a USB cable. Now it's been networked. One of the functions of this printer is that it could scan in documents to the computer. But now that it's networked, the scanner feature seems to no longer be an option. As far as I could tell with the manual, the scanner will not work if it's networked. My question is that if this is true, can a printer be connected to a networked AND connected to a computer through the USB cable at the same time (without any functionality issues) so that we can scan our documents again? Any help would be much appreciated, thank you. (And if there is no one with an answer, any help directing me to where I could find an answer would be appreciated as well since I cannot find how to get help through Canon's website.)

A:Canon imageRunner 1025N Scanning Issue

You may just need to reinstall the Canon software from the CD and configure the scanner as being Network connect rather then USB. Also the brochure suggests the unit support Scan to Email and Scan to FTP, you can configure that if its network connected, that's generally how most Xerox units are setup at the sites I visit. The Canon website seems to very lacking, you may have better manuals on the installation CD.

But there should be no reason it can't be connected both ways, however the scan to email or a network drive would be better.

I have an Epson 1400 printer.....I want to know if there is any issue at all in using non-Epson premium glossy paper for that setting when I print. Same question for other similar setting: if the setting on the printer is "Epson ultra-premim glossy photo paper," what if I use another brand of glossy photo paper instead?

I like the Epson paper, and I don't want to be penny-wise and pound-foolish....but if there are better deals out there for what amounts to the same product, I want to know that.

I've been using an Epson Workforce 610 printer using a wireless connection for a few years without problem using a desktop running Windows XP and a laptop running Windows 7 32 bit Home Professional. I just got a new desktop that runs Windows 7 64 bit Home Professional. I needed a different driver for the 64 bit system, which I found and downloaded on the Epson site, and everything installed fine. But, during setup when the new computer attempted to detect the printer on the wireless network, it gave me a message that the printer could not be found. The printer is detected by two other computers on the network and works with them just fine.

As far as I can tell, this is not a network problem since the new computer recognizes and uses the same wireless network to connect to the internet, and the printer shows it is connected to the network with a strong signal. Plus, it is able to communicate with two other computers wirelessly. I have tried rebooting both the computer and the printer and uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers with no success. Any ideas? Epson's site doesn't have any information on this problem. Is there something that has to be enabled in Windows 7 that I'm not aware of?

I have same problem just purchased wireless Epson xp 310 printer, connected with my WiFi, but when adding printer to Acer WIN 7 PC, the PC will not recognize the printer. Would security be preventing this recognition, so disabled Avast, and tried again, again, same result, PC does not recognize printer.
