How can I change the Power Off setting on my product?

    You can use the Epson Scan Settings utility to change the time period of inactivity before the scanner turns off automatically.

    Note: The Energy Saving button is disabled when you connect to the scanner over a network. You can only modify the settings over a USB connection.

    1. Use the provided USB cable to connect the scanner to your computer.
    2. Do one of the following to access the Epson Scan Settings utility:
      • Windows 10: Click and select EPSON > EPSON Scan Settings.
      • Windows 8.x: Navigate to the Apps screen and select EPSON Scan Settings.
      • Windows (other versions): Click or Start, and select All Programs or Programs. Select Epson, then EPSON Scan, then click EPSON Scan Settings.
      • Mac: Open the Applications folder, then open the Epson Software folder and double-click the EPSON Scan Settings icon.
    3. Click Energy Saving.
    4. Enter the time period of inactivity before the scanner turns off automatically as the Power Off Timer setting. If you enter a value of 0, the scanner will not turn off automatically.
    5. Click OK.
