The Push-Scan feature gives you the convenience of scanning directly from your All-In-One to a computer, without the need to go between the computer and All-In-One when you want to scan multiple pages or documents. To use this feature, the Epson All-In-One must be connected to the computer by a USB cable.
The following products also allow you to use Push-Scan over a network:
Before following these instructions, make sure you have installed your All-In-One using the Epson software CD-ROM. Your online User Guide also provides instructions on using this function.
Windows users: Also ensure that the EPSON Event Manager icon is displayed in the notification area of the Windows taskbar/system tray before you press the Push-Scan button. To use the Scan to PC function(s), EPSON Event Manager needs to be ready to scan.
Performing a Push-Scan
You can start scanning by selecting the following functions on the control panel:
The Scan to PC function lets you automatically scan your original and save it as a JPEG file on your computer.
The Scan to Email function lets you scan and attach the image file to an email message.
The Scan to PDF function lets you automatically scan your original and save it as a PDF file on your computer.
Where available, we recommend downloading and installing the latest version of Epson Event Manager from the Epson support website. Note: This is not required for the Stylus Photo PX710W and PX810FW models.
Windows 7 does not come with preinstalled email software such as Outlook Express. You will need to install email software to use the Scan to Email feature of the scanner/All-In-One.
