Try to uninstall your existing printer driver. Then, reboot your computer after the uninstall process.
Once your computer comes back on, visit the Lexmark website to download the Lexmark X5470 printer driver for Mac 10.6 at http://bit.ly/yRg5X8.

      A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Frequently, issues are caused simply by a break in the signal sent from PC to printer or vice versa. Unplugging and re-plugging the printer allows the small amount of on-board memory on the printer to be cleared, with the result that the PC recognizes the machine properly. Programs continuing to run in the background of the operating system (OS) can cause the signal to be lost. Rebooting the PC ends all programs that may be running and makes a 'clean' start, allowing the signal to be detected.

      Can't use it with my Mac : one component missing


      What is the version of your Mac operating system? It would be best that you uninstall any existing printer driver first > reboot your computer > then reinstall the printer driver.

      Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark X5470 Printer Driver on your computer. Select your operating system > click on "FILTER" > click on the driver under Recommended Downloads > download and execute the file. Simply follow the instructions on your computer screen to complete the installation.

      Then try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

      Lexmark x5470 not printing on all the page, some text are missing


      What is the operating system installed on your computer? It could be a printer driver issue or could be due to clogged cartridge nozzles. Try the steps below to fix the problem:

      Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

      If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

      1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
      2. Go to Programs.
      3. Go to Lexmark 5400 Series folder.
      4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

      From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.

      If that doesn't help, please visit the Lexmark website to update your Lexmark X5470 printer driver. Select your operating sytem > click on FILTER > click on the driver under Recommended Downloads > download and execute the file. Simply follow the instructions on your computer screen to complete the installation. Then try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

      I cannot use the scan function on my X5470--specifically, to scan documents into PDF format. "Cannot retrieve Application List" is the messge shown. How do I repair this function?


      Make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your computer. The software allows you to scan your documents to PDF file. The software is only available on the installation disc that came with your Lexmark printer. If you don't have the disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.

      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. 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. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


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

      1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

      2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

      2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

      3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

      4. Reboot your pc.

      5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

      6. Wait until your pc 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, then try to print/scan again.
