Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

I have a Lexmark 5470 printer. I can't install the printer because the disc won't work. I just spins around and the computer doesn't recognize that it is in the drive. I have tried it on other computers and the disk does acts the same way on every computer, not just mine. I think the disk is defective. Can I get another disk?

Why won't my printer scan a document to my laptop?


Make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your laptop. The software is available only on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you still haven't installed the software on your computer and you don't have the installation disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center to request for one.
If you were able to scan documents before using your Lexmark printer, it could be just a slight communication issue. A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).

Do i need software like ocr so that the lexmark x6650 scanner can work


If you are scanning documents for editing or saving them as PDF, you will need to install the OCR scan software. The Lexmark OCR scan software is available only on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you lost the disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center to request for one.
If your scanner was working before, it could be just a slight communication problem. A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to scan a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

When scanning to a PDF file for multiple pages from the glass, the file won't process and create. I have tried a RIP and clean re-installation of the software but it doesn't make a difference.


Make sure that the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your computer. The software aids in creating PDF files and combining multiple-page documents into one file.The software is only available on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you don't have the install disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.

Lexmark 5470 printer not working on Windows Vista


If you just connected the printer to your Vista PC, the drivers probably didn't load.
If you haven't yet, you need to install the Lexmark drivers first before you can use your printer. Unplug the printer before installing, then plug it in when prompted by the software.

Drivers for Lexmark x5470 disapear after the laptop is turned on.


Hey,

Fully uninstall the lexmark from your computer, everything, delete the printer from printers and faxes and make sure there is no trace of the printer on the computer.

Then get the files you downloaded and install the printer again.

Everything should work normally.



Thanks,
Ekse

Lost my cd to install lexmark 5470 need to download to install my printer


Hi you can download the lexmark software from

www.lexmark.com When you open the page, look at the right side where it says drivers and downloads. Click on it and then select driver finder from the list.

On the driver finder page enter your 5470 model into the search field, is it X5470? well try x5470 or 5470 if it says just 5470.

Anyway all the lexmark drivers are there you just need to find your printer from there, then select your windows version and download. Finaly install the software and happy printing.
