    Re: HOWTO: Epson Perfection 1670 Scanner (and other SnapScan scanners)

    I have the epson 2480
    I found the bin file I needed on the driver disc and copied it to my webspace below http://www.morganstorey.com/stuff/Esfw41.bin
    I have followed the instructions and get the below

    # scanimage -L
    device `snapscan:libusb:005:003' is a EPSON EPSON Scanner flatbed scanner


    I can now get xsane working, and scanimage -T seems to work, but it doesn't scan. Xsane just shows a slightly bluey blurred page as a preview and a finished product.

    anyone know how to fix the above? My wife's desperate to scan some pictures, has even suggested I reinstall windows.

    Have you tried the other firmware file (ESFW30.BIN) posted above? Perhaps your firmware doesn't play nice...a known-working firmware is worth a shot.

    I have an Epson 1670; I'll give it a shot in a minute.

    Hmm...odd. I can't scan, either. With Kooka, preview works, but the full scan doesn't -- it just hangs. With scanimage on the command line, it warms up the scanner and then says,

    scanimage: sane_start: Error during device I/O

    The scanner light starts doing a funky red-green-blink dance, and scanning hangs. Hmmm... perhaps my scanner is a revision that isn't compatible with the posted firmware? But the preview scan worked...

    I tried in 2 hubs, in case that was the issue; I may try plugging it directly into the motherboard to rule it out further.

    Re: HOWTO: Epson Perfection 1670 Scanner (and other SnapScan scanners)

    well, for the record, the firmware for Epson scanners is packaged in the driver that you can download from Epson -- use unzip to open the .exe file, and then cabextract to open the ModUsd.cab file. You'll find the two .bin options inside.
    Interestingly, the esfw30.bin file inside there is different than the one posted on this thread. But it doesn't solve my problem -- scanner detected, then "Error during device I/O".
    Alas...

    Re: HOWTO: Epson Perfection 1670 Scanner (and other SnapScan scanners)

    I got an Image:

    Scanner will only complete one pass, then requires restart / xsane restart
    Don't do the preview scan just select the whole area and then scan........What a pain!

    The result of scanimage -Tv after the first scanned image (scanimage -p > img1.ppm)
    Code:
    scanimage: open of device snapscan:libusb:003:003 failed: Error during device I/O
    dmesg:
    Code:

    I've set sane to debug and attached is a diff of the successful and failed scan passes if anyone can do anything with them

    Re: HOWTO: Epson Perfection 1670 Scanner (and other SnapScan scanners)

    I am experiencing the same problems with my Epson Perfection 1670. This appears to be a kernel bug in Feisty: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...nds/+bug/94226 I used this scanner for a long time on Edgy and it worked beautifully.

    It does one scan ok and then just gives I/O error repeatedly, with red blinking light. I found that I could reset the scanner by disconnecting/reconnecting the power cable, but it's very difficult to use for productive work. I have tried both firmware files available with the same result.

    Re: HOWTO: Epson Perfection 1670 Scanner (and other SnapScan scanners)

    This bug has been around since Feisty was released. It has to do with the experimental feature
    "USB selective suspend/resume and wakeup (EXPERIMENTAL) (USB_SUSPEND)" that is enabled in the Feisty kernel. If you recompile the kernel with this option disabled then you will be able to scan normally again. Even better, if you compile the 2.6.21 vanilla kernel with this enabled things will work as they should. There was a bug in the 2.6.20 kernel that has been fixed.
