[SOLVED] Epson Scanner CX4800
I've had an epson all in one CX4800 for quite awhile and the initial setup is not very difficult, however as of last week I am no longer able to scan documents. When I attempt to use it I get the error:
Failed to start scanner: Device Busy
Output of sane-find-scanner
Now we see where the problem starts with scanimage:
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x0819 [USB2.0 MFP(Hi-Speed)]) at libusb:001:007
I've had a problem in the past which had the same symptoms, but it was due to a kernel incompatability with usb-storage and usblp modules and my scanner setup (I think it was in kernel versions 2.6.9 to 2.6.17 or so). I've tried to disable these modules, but as expected it didn't help.
No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
Anyone have any ideas?
