If you go to the apple icon/system preferences/printers & scanners/ and select your scanner in the list and then choose the "scan" tab on the right side and click the "open Scanner" button. Does it give an error message at all or any error number? Has this scanner ever worked before?

That was good to try different cables. So we can rule the cable out.

Try this then:

  1. On your Mac, open the Image Capture app, then @ the top select File > Reset TWAIN devices.
  2. Close Image Capture.
  3. Restart your Mac.
  4. Try to scan.

Sorry, you have 10.11 so the instructions I gave you was for 10.10. Try this instead if its not there.

Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Printers & Scanners. Hold down the Control key as you click in the list at the left, then choose “Reset printing system” from the menu that appears. After you reset the printing system, the list of printers inPrinters & Scanners preferences is empty. This is where you can then try and add the scanner again and try and scan.

Also, I know you mentioned it but I wanted to confirm that you did go to https://epson.com/Support/Scanners/Perfection-Series/Epson-Perfection-V700-Photo/s/SPT_B11B178011 and downloaded the 10.11 drivers v3.9.4.0

but if you did, I would fist try the native drivers for mac which is the "Image Capture" drivers called "ICA Scanner Driver v5.8.7 for Image Capture". this is dated 9/22/17 so this could be the only way it scans but after installed don't use the epson scanning software but instead use the image capture app on your mac or go to apple icon/system preferences/printers & scanners/ and select your scanner in the list and then choose the "scan" tab on the right side and click the "open Scanner" button.

Let me know what happens.
