  1. Why does my wireless scanner keep dropping?


    I recently hooked up an Epson ES-580W scanner and got it to work wirelessly. However, after a few minutes, the scanner goes to sleep and when I try to scan again, it is no longer connected wirelessly. I have to restart my computer and the scanner in order to get it to work again for a short time. I hooked the scanner up to another computer also using Windows 10 and it works fine: it does not disconnect. So why is it not working on the one computer? Thank you for any tips.

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    As per the description, I understand that the scanner is incompatible with Windows 10. So, I suggest you to install the drivers for the device in compatibility mode by following the steps:

    • Download the setup files for the driver from the manufacturer website and save it on your local disk.
    • Right click on the setup file of the driver and select
      “Properties”.
    • Select “Compatibility” Tab.
    • Place a check mark next to“Run this program in Compatibility mode” and select operating system from the drop down list.
    • Let the driver install and then check thefunctionality.

    Hope the information is helpful. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    (SOLVED/CLOSED)looking for help with Android phone CONSTANT wireless signal notification

    Yeah, thats not a solution she is interested in......I've suggested that course of action. Thanks though.

    Just to clarify, I feel that there MUST be a step, or series of steps to turn off JUST the wireless notification sound. Thats what Im driving @ here.
