I have an epson perfection 1250 scanner in use since OS9 days. Keeping it running under OSX has been a pain in the ... given epson's lack of enthusiastic support for X, but I've kept it going until this morning. I launched it only to discover that it is broken. I have no idea why. Worse, it seems to have broken image capture as well. I've taken rudimentary steps in trying to troubleshoot, and I've gotten nowhere. On launch, a window tells me that it cannot launch the scanner. No other infor or helpful hints. This occurs in classic as well. I even get the same window in image capture. However, when I go to system profiler, the scanner shows up under usb devices. Puzzler, for me anyway. Anyone had the same or a similar problem, and could just shoot the solution over to me? thanks.
