  1. scanner issue with windows 11


    Just purchased Xerox c235 printer/scanner. Worked good for a couple of days and then scanner quit working. Contacted Xerox and they said that it was caused by windows. Will there be a fix soon, or do I just have a new printer with no scanner? I am running Windows 11.Dave

  2. Scanner won't run on Windows 11

    Here is what worked for me.

    Step 1. Uninstall all Epson software by using the Control Panel Programs and Features uninstall process.

    Step 2. Download ALL Epson files related to my scanner from the official Epson Perfection support page. Here is the link.

    Perfection Series | Scanners | Epson® Official Support

    I selected my scanner model from the list, which took me to the scanner’s support page.

    From the dropdown list I selected Windows 11 as my operating system – even though the web form “detected” Windows 10 64 bit. Make sure to hit the “GO” button to reveal the list of downloadable files.

    Step 3. There were seven files displayed under the “Utilities” section. I downloaded all of them into a file folder on my hard drive – noting the date of each file.

    Step 4. Rename to add numbers to all files according to their associated date, starting with the oldest first. My renamed files looked like this:

    1_epson16827.exe – Epson Copy Utility v4.1.1+

    2_EPS_1.00.10.exe – Easy Photo Scan v1.00.10+

    3_V550_EScan_3923_AM.exe – Scanner Driver and EPSON Scan Utility v3.9.2.3+

    4_ESCU_1.0.0.0.exe – Common Updater for Epson Scan v1.0.0.0+

    5_EEM_31153.exe – Epson Event Manager v3.11.53+

    6_ESCU_W11.exe – Epson Scan Common Updater v1.0.0+

    7_ESU_4.6.3.exe – Epson Software Updater v4.6.3

    Step 5. Install all seven files sequentially, starting with 1_epson16827.exe and working methodically up to 7_ESU_4.6.3.exe

    Step 6. Turn on scanner. Reboot.

    Everyday operation (after performing this reinstall)

    Step 1. Turn on scanner and then boot. Make sure scanner is powered on before boot.



    If Windows is running but the scanner was not turned on before boot -- and if the scanner is not responsive do the following:

    Step 1. Turn on scanner.

    Step 2. In Windows 11, run services.msc. Find the “Windows Image Acquisition” service. Restart that service. Agree to restart Epson scanning service.

    Step 3. Run Epson Scan. This should initialize all necessary electronic connections. Might need to run once, close, and run a second time.

    Anyways, this is what is working for me… today. I hope it works for me tomorrow as well.

    Fingerprint Scanner Not Working

    Hello Gary,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community.

    To resolve this issue try the following steps:




    • Have you updated the driver for the Finger Print scanner? If not, check on the manufacturer’s website (HP).

    • Check if installing the latest driver of the fingerprint scanner allows you to login using a Microsoft Account?


    This issue might occur due to driver incompatibility since upgrading to Windows 10.



    If you have the raw executable file of the corresponding driver for the validity sensor, I would suggest you to install the downloaded driver file in compatible mode with Windows 7 or 8. Refer to the following steps to do so.




    • Right click on the driver, and click on Properties.

    • Go to the Compatibility tab.

    • Check the box for Run this program in compatibility mode for:

    • Select Windows 7 in the list of Operating systems.

    • Click OK.

    • Double-click the driver file to install the driver and follow the onscreen instructions.

    • Reboot your computer.


    Hope the above steps help.



    Thank you.
