    Catherine,

    No, it will not scan. It cannot get past "Downloading Application List" when I try to scan.



    What does this mean? I was under the impression that it was only the line of communication between the PC and the Printer that was the problem.

    Catherine,

    My printer finally posted "Cannot retrieve" as a result of trying to Scan.

    Hi,



    Have you installed any other hardware lately?


    If you have tried all of the above, have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling?



    Can you scan? Do check scanning you can just push the Copy Mode button on the printer and choose Start Black. Please let me know if that works.



    Thanks

SEEMS TO BE PRINTING NOW. I SIMPLY REINSTALLED THE LEXUS 5400 SERIES CD. IT IS NOW PRINING AGAIN.

BUT IT IS STILL NOT SCANNING, STATING THAT IT CANNOT RETRIEVE APPLICATION LIST. WHY WOULD IT COMMUNICATE WITH ONE (PRINTING) BUT NOT ANOTHER (SCANNING)????

When you got this message were you trying to scan?

What I want you to do is a copy. Doing a copy will generally not require you to be hooked to the PC.

Scanning and Printing all require communication from the printer to the computer. Failure in communication can either be something on the computer, something wrong with the cable or rarely something wrong with the printer.

I'm assuming you have done the following:

1. Power off your printer and your computer.
2. Unplugged the power from the printer
3. Unplugged the USB cable from both the printer and the computer.
4. Reconnect the USB cable to the printer and the computer.
5. Plug the power back into the printer and make sure the printer is on.
6. Turn on the computer.

Those are general troubleshooting steps that can be done for any communication problem.

If you have done all of those try this:

Press and hold down the Windows key on the keyboard, and then type the letter R.
Type "devmgmt.msc" and then click OK on the Run dialog.
Find the item Universal Serial Bus controller.
Click the + sign next to the word Universal Serial Bus controller.
Do you see USB Printing Support?
Yes:
Right-click on USB Printing Support, and then click Properties.
Does the Device status say “This device is working properly.”?
Yes:
Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the software?
No:
Click the Troubleshoot button to try to resolve the problem.
Does the Device status now say “This device is working properly.”?
Yes:
Try your print again (might need to restart)
No:
Might have a problem with your Printing Support

No:
Might have a problem with your Printing Support

Let me know - if you have a problem with your printing support you'd really need to contact your PC MFG for help - but you can always try uninstalling the USB Printing Support and reinstalling it (only if you have your disks that came with your printer).

First, unplug the Lexmark printer from your computer. Then uninstall any existing Lexmark X5470 driver from your computer. Go to Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark X5400 Series -> Tools -> Uninstall. Uninstall the driver. Reboot pc when prompted.
When your computer turns on, check if your Windows 7 is running on 32-bit or 64-bit service type. Go to Start menu -> right-click on Computer -> Properties. Take note of the Service Type.

Printer does not recognize carts


I have refilled my cartridges many, many times. A messy job, but well worth the savings. Never over fill, handle carefully.
The printer will give an error message, but just press cancel, do not order a new cartridge, Your refilled cartridge will work on the lexmark x5470. Good luck.
