Question about Lexmark X5150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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...?

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.

Tips for a great answer:
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:
