I am unable to scan from my Epson Workforce 630 into my computer.

Resolved Question:

I am unable to scan from my Epson Workforce 630 into my computer. My printer has a wireless connection to my home network.

I keep getting a message that there is a communication error. I've turned off the computer and the printer several times...with no luck. The wireless printing function works just fine.

I've had trouble with the event manager software...and despite re-installing it several times, I still get a message it is not working.
