Possible Solutions to Fix Epson Scanner Issues In Windows 10

02 April, 2019

These days’ printers are coming with multifunctional personality, which means they are capable of performing more than one task. People, especially organizations prefer to invest their money on All-in-one printers that can print, scan, fax and copy. But there is a drawback of buying a multifunctional printer. As you know, more the feature, more complexities it will come up with. We have recently received many complains from Epson printer users on our Epson Printer Helpline Number USA that they are unable to use Epson Scanner after upgrading to Windows 10. Actually, the problem is neither with the printer nor with the operating system. Such issues appear because of certain technicalities. You can resolve this problem by following the instruction given here.

Make Sure That Epson Scan is Not Set on Compatibility Mode

• Right-click your Epson Scan icon on the desktop.
• Then go to the Compatibility tab. Uncheck the checkbox that says “Run this program in compatibility mode for” and click OK.
• Now press Windows + R key to open run dialog box and type “service.msc” and then click OK.
• After this, right-click Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) and then click Properties.
• Verify that Startup type is set to Automatic and the Service Station is Running.
• Click Apply and click OK.

Check if your Epson scanner is working or not. If not then move to the next possible solution.

Update Epson Scanner Driver

There is a possibility that Windows 10 update has removed the driver or the installed driver is not compatible with the operating system. In both cases, you can try to fix the solution by installing the scanner driver update.
