Hi, thank you for your reply. I've already configured the networking settings on the printer itself. I've even tested and confirmed the connection, it says everything is fine.

If it can print wirelessly, why is it telling me there is a "communications error" when I try to scan wirelessly?

Although these things are called "multifunction" devices, they are actually quite separate devices in the same box.

Printing is primarily an output function. Your machine sends whatever you are printing to the printer, and only receives acknowledgements.

Scanning is primarily an input function. Your machine sends various commands to the scanner, and should then receive the scanned material. Obviously this is not working for you.

Considering what you have already tried without success, I would suspect you have a defect in the SCANNER connections to the wireless transmitter, ( which is doubtless common to all the devices in the box). Could be something as simple as a loose cable.

If the machine works when you use a USB cable, then that is certainly the problem. If it does not work with a USB cable either, then the scanner has some other defect.

Can you exchange the machine? That is what I would try at this stage.

Thanks.

... I cannot exchange the machine, I bought it on amazon. Epson's "support" does not even have a US toll-free number ... when I called, it was in california.

I've configured the networking settings and everything is fine. If I get a USB cable and it scans, that's great, but really annoying since I have a laptop and will have to connect the USB cord every time I want to scan. Sigh.

If it works with a USB cable, that is proof that the wireless scanning does not function. That is sufficient grounds for a warranty claim on the seller. If it does not work with a USB cable, the same applies.

They would have to repair it, exchange it, or refund your money. Which Amazon did you buy it from? ( Country) And when did you buy it?

Hi, I just ordered a USB cable, i'll see if it works when it gets here.

I ordered it from Amazon.com, US, and it was new in the package, new and never opened.

If I do not know what model year the unit would be, I assume it's around 2010 so I don't know if has a warranty or if it's still covered by one. It didn't state anything about a warranty in the paperwork.

Here? ;

Amazon.com: Epson Stylus NX625 Color InkJet All-in-One (C11CA70271): Electronics

Seems you have to buy warranty;



that would be illegal where I live. A minimum warranty of three years is given on such articles.

Sorry that doesn't seem to be much help.

Nothing seems to cure the wireless scan issue. It even freezes when I use the "VueScan" third party TWAIN software and drivers.
