Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I just installed a Lexmark X4530 printer/scanner. Every other page I try to scan, I get the message 'Scan Request Failed'. It seems to be totally random, no change to settings or the page being scanned. This is a replacement to a Lexmark 5000 series printer/scanner, which did the same thing, only worse. Does anyone know why this is happening? I thought Lexmark was a more reliable product.

SOURCE: Scanning error - cannot scan error code 2,155,0 ???

I had the same problem with a new Canon MP970. Printed ok, but couldn't communicate with the scanner - error 2,155,0.
Canon phone support didn't help, and suggested it was a firewall problem. I uninstalled, and re-installed, turning off firewall, virus software, and everything. No luck. Tried several USB cables, no luck.
Then I uninstalled again - as well as a couple of old drivers and software associated with two now deceased printer/scanners.
This time I plugged the (same) USB in and turned on the device, using Windows' own hardware install wizard.
Now it works fine (at least for now... touch wood).
So - the problem might be either conflict with other printer/scanner devices installed, or with Canon's installation software.

SOURCE: i cant scan my pictures... i have lexmark x4530

Right click and open the installation disk and look for 'applications\setup' and install it.
If you donot see the same, double click on the disk [left] select 'install\custom install' and select 'productivity studio' and install it, it should work.
The last option is to reinstall the whole drivers.

SOURCE: where do i get a

Go to the Lexmark Imaging icon (located on the taskbar) and look to the left and down the bottom. You will see Network Settings, click on the "view or change network settings." When you get in, uncheck the "I WISH TO REQUIRE A PIN TO SCAN TO MY COMPUTER" and then press OK. This will remove the pin setting from your scanner. Lexmark technical support just did that for me, now my printer does not ask for a pin number.

I want to scan a document. I click Scan Mode. The printer responds, "Retreiving Application List," then "Cannot Retrieve Application List."


A problem occurs with your scan driver. You will need to reinstall it to correct the problem.

Another way to scan is to use the scanner option in your computer. Go to Control Panel. Double click the Scanners & Cameras icon. Feed your documents in the printer before starting the scan process.

Try it.
Please give this answer a four thumbs up rating it this help you.

I'm trying to scan a picture to my computer,but can't get it to work


The only way I got my Lexmark to scan, was to install the CD that came with it. It installs a program called "Lexmark Imaging Studio". That's where the scan will be transferred to from the printer.
To scan: Press the Scan Mode button, and then the check mark in the middle of the buttons. Then to activate the scan, press Start Color or Start Black to start the scan. With the Imaging Program installed, it will automatically come up and display the scan, where you can scan more or save or print the scan. I have the X4530 Lexmark all-in-one, but the program should be the same, or similar. Good luck, hope this helps.

Usually a cable is not hooked up or the printer port is not enabled.

If it uses a USB port it should auto detect the port.
If this is the case you will need to download a new driver from the Lexmark site that matches your operating system and install it.
