What does the scanner’s status light indicate?
The status light indicates the following:
|Green||On||Ready to scan.|
|Flashing||Initializing (warming up) or scanning.|
|Orange||Flashing||An error has occurred.*|
|(None)||Off||The scanner is off.|
*If an error occurs, the scanner stops operating and the status light flashes orange. This indicates one of the following problems:
- The scanner may not be properly connected to your computer or your software may not be fully installed. To make sure the scanner is correctly installed, see the Start Here sheet for instructions.
- The scanner and/or the transparency unit transportation lock is locked. Slide the lock to the unlock position.
- The scanner cover cable or optional Automatic Document Feeder cable is not connected to the scanner’s OPTION port. Connect the cable to the port.
NOTE: Before connecting or disconnecting the scanner cover cable or the Automatic Document Feeder cable, turn off the scanner using its power switch.
If the Status light is still flashing, contact Epson support
