Question about Lexmark X5150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

OCD Scan not working.

My Lexmark 5100Se is not scanning text. When I try, it scans like a photocopy and reports to install my OCR software and try the scan again. I have pulled the original Lexmark installation CD and reinstalled it, but it goes through the whole process, declares it has been installed and it does not help. I hve both used the UPDATE factor and have even uninstalled and reinstalled it. Still can not activate the scanner to do the optial character read scanning. This used to work beautifully. Anyone know...?

SOURCE: ocr folder

The software you need is Abbyy Sprint OCR. If it's not installed, I suggest running the printer setup again, making sure it's selected when you get to the software list. Perhaps you unchecked the box when you ran the installation the first time, or didn't know what it was and uninstalled it from your computer. You may be able to find it by hunting through the CD, but it will probably be easier to run the setup again.

Without CD you can't install OCR or Optical character recognition software because OCR function is not installed in scanner but in computer. Usually when you buy new scanner you get CD or DVD with drivers and some lite version of OCR and some other programs for graphic editing.

  1. Check the connections between the two machines.
  2. Lift the printer's document lid. Examine the scanning surface and the underside of the lid for dust and fingerprints.
  3. Put the document you wish to scan face-down on the glass. Use the alignment markers to help you square up the object. These are usually found on the left-hand edge of the scanning area.
  4. Close the printer's document lid slowly so the document does not shift position.
  5. Select a scan resolution. The higher the dpi (dots per inch) count, the sharper and more detailed the image.
  6. Push the scan button. You may have to do this on the printer itself or on your computer.
  7. Check the preview of your scan on your computer. Depending on your all-in-one printer and software, you may have to prompt your computer to display the preview for you.
  8. Edit the image as it appears on your computer if you want to make changes. Your scanning software might let you enlarge, resize or otherwise manipulate the final product.StepAccept the scan and save. Return the original document to a safe location.

The lexmark x2650 doesn't have the OCR software in it. I try to scan a document and edit it but can't because no OCR software included


To scan documents for editing and saving as PDF file, you will need to install the Lexmark OCR scan software on your computer. The Lexmark scan software (no downloadable version) is only available on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you lost the disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.


To install the OCR scan software from the printer installation CD:

  1. Insert CD into the CD-ROM drive. If the installation screen open, click Cancel.
  2. Double-click on My Computer / Computer.
  3. Right-click on Lexmark XXXX CD and select Open.
  4. Double-click on OCR.
  5. Double-click on Setup.exe to install the OCR software. Your operating system will then determine the language in which it is installed.

I have a Lexmark x5650. I'm on a mac, upgraded my os from Tiger to Snow Leopard. Now I can't scan OCR text. Could scan to word document before, and get editable text. That is not an option now


If you still have the Lexmark X5650 install disc that came with your printer, re-insert it to your computer hard drive and run the program. This will help repair the OCR scan software and possible corrupted files necessary for scanning documents.

Scanning - edit text


The scan software(OCR) can only be installed using the installation cd that came with your printer. It's not available for download since it's a big file. If you have the installation cd, just insert it in your computer to install the software. If you don't have or you lost it, I advise you to contact Lexmark at 1-800-LEXMARK(1-800-539-6275). They will be able to send you one for free. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Lexmark X2500 driver is missing OCR software


Sometimes companies only support only the basic drivers. The OCR software is on the CD (s) that came with the printer. Suggestion. Try to order the original CD from Lexmark., or search Ebay for programs that have OCR capability. You can use OCR programs from other vendors as long as they are stand-a-lone programs. Just make sure you have the original disc so as not to infringe on copyright privileges.

Note: you can buy OCR programs. Check Ebay and Amazon. They are usually better that the programs that come on the OEM disk.

Cheers.
