    Default Printer to Computer

    Hi All.
    Toshiba Satellite P50-c. Epson Printer WF 3640, (with Fax.)

    The Computer is hard connected to the printer, not WiFi. The computer will Send to the printer but the Printer will not Send to the computer. Why? Thanks. PJ

    You don't have to scan to a USB drive. Assume you have installed the complete package for the printer ? The basic only contains the printer driver, the full package is needed for full scanning.

    Generally its better to use the computer to pull a scan from the Scanner rather than the Scanner sending to the computer ( there is huge difference).

    In the manual, it advises on how to change the scan locations ( so NOT to a USB) https://files.support.epson.com/doci...368/index.html

    Type Scan Location in the search.

    What OCR software are you trying to use ? The one recommended is in the Downloads - Utilities - ( Last option) EPSON Scan OCR Component v3.00.04.

    All Downloads Epson-WorkForce-WF-3640

    Heres how to Scan to OCR as well https://files.support.epson.com/html...r_windows.html

    send to computor doesnt allways work . Just the way things are.

    If you did the full Brother software install , there will be Brother software installed on the PC that will be able to do a scan to PC
    So use the computors Brother software to do this . It wil start the scan & give you a preview & options of what format to save as

    I use HP Smart android app from my Samsung mobile to scan to PC direct or to email. Works well. Epson has similar - Epson iPrint in the Google play store. Maybe try it from any nearby room. But may need set up WiFi.
