Why Can't I Scan From my All-in-One?

Epson

Episode 1574

Jack from California

Jack has an Epson All-in-One printer and he can't scan to his computer. It says all the channels are blocked. Leo says that he can scan over wifi with today's wireless printer scanners. But it's network scanning, and a firewall may be blocking it. Turn off the software firewall in the OS. He doesn't need it if he has a router. Then, open up the computer to the printer in the menu and let the printer make the connection.

Barry from West Los Angeles, CA

Barry needs a new printer that can print on Legal paper sizes, but can also fax. He's looking at a Brother, HP and Epson. Leo says that it depends on how much you use it. If he's rarely going to print, then a laser printer is a better choice because the ink doesn't get dried out in the nozzles. But if he's printing a lot and needs color, then an inkjet will certainly suffice. All three make good printers, but Leo prefers Epson. However, Brother makes very inexpensive yet very good laser printers.

What All-in-One Printer should I buy?

Epson WorkForce 3620

Episode 1387

Benny from Pasadena, CA

Benny is looking for a wireless all-in-one printer with fax. Leo says that the fax wouldn't be wireless, obviously. Leo recommends the Epson Workforce Pro. Canon also makes good All-in-One. He can actually get an all-in-one for under $100, the Epson Workforce 3620 is around $120 quite often. But he should remember that the ink is going to cost him.

What's a good, yet small all-in-one printer?

Epson WorkForce ET-4550 EcoTank

Episode 1271

Christine from Albany, CA

Christine needs a small all-in-one printer for her tiny house. Leo says that the Epson WorkForce ET-4550 EcoTank isn't too big and has the benefit of coming with 2 years of ink. That's great for regular use. They do stick out over the edge just a little bit. Worth taking a look at. Any all-in-one which does scanning and printing will be a bit larger than a standard printer. Another option is the Epson Artisan. Canon makes a very good printer as well, with the Pixma line.
