If you have an XP OS, click START Menu then click "Printers and Faxes". A window will open with a list of printers installed in your computer. Right Click the printer icon for your 8300 printer then select properties. Go to "Ports" Tab, you will see the check box for "Enable bidirectional support".

Once a doc is scanned on a 8300 series all in one, how do I get the scanned image from the printer to a word doc? Looked


You can actually scan directly to an application(ex. MS Word application). Also, make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your computer (the software is available on the install disc that came with your printer).
1. Load an original document into the ADF or on the scanner glass. 2. Press Scan Mode. 3. Press ? or ? repeatedly until the MS Word application is highlighted. 4. Press check button. 5. Press Start Color or Start Black to start scanning.

Have you talked with Lexmark Technical Support? I suspect you may have to escalate this beyond level one. Vista on Mac is likely to have issues that differ from other Vista environments.

Lexmark X8350 "communication not available"


I fixed this by completely uninstalling the Lexmark software, then unplugging the USB and restarting. I then installed the new Lexmark software that I downloaded from their site, make sure not to plug the USB back in until it told me to. It then detected the printer properly and started working.

Trying to use the bizhub 200 as a network printer.


First thing your going to have to do is go into the administrator setup of the copier by pressing the utility counter button. The password is 12345678 by default. Select network settings and enter an available ip address for your copier along with the subnet mask and gateway settings.

These settings work for a 300. I don't know if any of these changed for a 200 series. Let me know if they do.
