epson cx 3600 - not able to scan

  MOOCMOOC 07:03 27 Sep 05

Hi,can you help?
the unit will print and copy but when i try to use the scan facilities the following message appears "unable to access the scanner because it is not ready or another application is using it. Please make sure that the scanner is on and connected to your computer or close all scanning applications". I have no other scan apps.

Just gone through this nightmare... go to device manager in control panel- system.
No doubt youll find a few query marks. The drivers don't always instal automatically.

Cured my prob's anyway ;)

Oh, and make sure the machine is switched off at the main before instal too. That fooled me for a bit!!

Re-install the drivers and follow the instructions exactly shown.

Would mention that the cx 3600 is the same as the cx3650 [pcw exclusive].A person that I know deals with store returns, repairs then sells on. Just lately he seems to have a more than average supplies of this model.
