Q:
I have a Macintosh computer running OS X 10.2.x or later. When I launch EPSON Scan I am unable to scan. I get the message Epson Scan cannot be started or Cannot properly communicate with the scanner. I also notice that sometimes the scanner light is blinking green and the carriage moves back and forth continuously. How do I fix this?
A:
You may get any of these errors when you’re using a Mac with OS X 10.2.x or later and Classic is running in the background.

These same problems can occur if Classic is configured to launch when you log in to OS X. (You can enable/disable this feature by checking Start Classic when you login in the Classic section of the System Preferences, as shown below).

We now have an updated driver which supports scanning in OS X while Classic is running. You can download the latest TWAIN Driver and Epson Scan Utility from the Perfection 2480 Photo Downloads page.
