I'm sorry about the issue. Please try the following:


- Click on the Epson website below:

, then there, click on Drivers, then download and install both the Printer Driver and the Scanner Driver and EPSON Scan Utility

, then see if you can print and scan. For scanning, you can open Finder, then click on Applications, then open Epson... / EPSON Scan application.


- If needed, make sure the printer is powered on

, then click on the Apple logo / menu at the top, then click on System Preferences, then open Printers & Scanners (or Print & Fax)

, then click on the + (plus) button at bottom left, and see if it detects your printer; if yes, then select it, then add printing.


- If needed, on the printer device, press the wireless signal / wrench / screwdriver Wi-Fi Setup button, then select option Wi-Fi Setup Wizard, then select / connect to your wi-fi / wireless network name. Please click on the website below for full instructions/ illustrations:
