Hello! My name is*****
I am a certified computer professional who will assist you with the problem you described.

Please tell me if your Epson WF-3640 device is connected to a computer using a cable, or it was configured as a wireless printer/scanner? Also, do you get any error message when trying to print or scan from the other computer?

I am awaiting your reply.

Wireless. No error message - the computer does not come up as a destination option. The only options that come up are USB and the other computer. Previously the options were
Last Computer Used
X230 (or X121 depending on which had been used last)

Hello! Thanks for the update!

Are the options you mentioned shown on the printer control panel (display) or on the Epson program utility on the computer? Also, is your other computer able to print to the printer?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
On the printer display. Both computers can print.
Expert:  IT Miro replied 1 year ago.


In case you have an anti-virus and/or firewall program installed on the computer, please temporary disable it and then check if the printer will list it when trying to scan.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing. This is taking too long.

OK. I will opt-out and allow another Expert to assist you since I am not always available to respond to you right away.
