Have you ever been frustrated when you are adding printers on your mac and it does not seem to be able to scan. Most modern printers offer AirPrint, Google cloud print, or you can install it on your network and it will be available via bonjour network.
When I was re-setting up my old epson xp-205, it appeared to be on apple printers network as a normal bonjour device. After installing, it was only able to print without apple scan function. After some trials, it was able to to scan only after I reset the printing devices on my local machine. The printer finally came up as bonjour multifunction device. Now I am able to scan via print and scan section. hope this helps someone.
