    I have the Epson CX4600, which has no scan button on it. I have to initiate a scan from the computer using either Epson Scan or any program, like Graphic Converter, which has TWAIN Acquire (which calls Epson Scan). I am assuming the idea is that pressing the button launches Epson Scan. Does your manual say this will work on a Mac? If you can scan from the computer end, then I would check with Epson. If you can not scan at all, you are missing some software. Good luck.
