I've received three reports so far about problems with the
EPSON Perfection 1640 scanner. It seems that some models report
an error when a resolution of 300dpi or more is selected. I've
also received numerous success stories about this model, so=20
my suspicion is that EPSON changed something in the firmware
that causes some of these models to do strange things.
Can you please report back to me (email@example.com) if your scanner
does work with resolutions higher than 300 dpi _AND_ the
firmware version number your scanner reports.
This information can be obtained by running the following command:
or for SCSI scanners:
PLease send the software rev if you know how to look up this data
or the complete output of these commands.
If it turns out to be a firmware version related problem, I will
compile a list of working/non-working versions and publish this
list here and on my web site.
Thanks for your help,
