Question about Lexmark X5250 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark x5250 printer software still not working.

I tried what you suggested so far and nothing. I have tried doing it in safe mode, but it says that the printer spooler service is not running, and then gives me an option to cancel or hit OK to continue and fix the problem; but it does nothing. The software will install and attempt to open up in normal mode of course, but it still gets that message about searching for scanning applications. Do you think that installing service pack 3 from Microsoft Updates could be the issue? I see it has drivers for the service pack 2, but nothing higher than that. I have service pack 2 which is the original CD I bought for XP, but Microsoft automaticly updated it for me. What should I do? The printer itself works of course, and it will scan with the MS PAINT program, but thats it. I want to use the all-in-one software because its so much easier and has other features that I like as well.

Ok,

I think I have it.

Go to Lexmark Support.

In the "Search by Model" box enter x5250. When the model pops up, click it.

In the "Search the KnowledgeBase" box enter "searching for scanning applications". Click "Search".

You will get 2 choices. Click the bottom one, "How to Add a Scanning Application to the All-In-One Center".

Follow the instructions given.

Comment back.

    If the Lexmark program in the box already, you probably should make it the default.

Hi I cannot find the disc to set up my lexmark x5250 to my laptop since moving house? Have you any suggestions? Many thanks Julie juliemaddocks@manx.net


Hi,

If you have lost/misplaced the installation disk, you can download the drivers and software from the Lexmark X5250 support website by clicking this link

On the page which opens, click the "Driver for Windows 2000, XP and Server 2003" link to open the download window. Then click the 'Download' button to start the download process.

If your computer has a different operating system, click the "[Change OS]" link and select the correct operating system. [Microsoft Windows Vista/others....]

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a x5250 printer and would like to add it to my partners computer but i have lost the disk


I suggest not to plug the printer to your computer yet. Download and install the driver first. Here's the link to the Lexmark website for the available Lexmark X5250 drivers. http://bit.ly/al9bqi . Choose the right driver compatible with your computer's operating system. Download and install the software. Follow the instructions on the software. Hope this helps.

You have got two options:
1: Try installing drivers and then assign any folder the status of a folder specifically designed for Photos and then you will get the option for taking a picture from camera or the scanner.(for further details regarding dis option you may leave a comment for me on my blog!!)
2: All the All-in-one printers have special software packages bundled with them especially designed for multi-tasking with scanners. They are made for doing all jobs like Scanning, Printing, Copying etc.

My Lexmark x5250 all in one printer


Well, lets try this:

Delete the printer from your computer and uninstall the software.

Boot the computer into Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key when the computer begins booting.

Disable or close any anti-virus software you have running.

Make sure the USB cable is connected before installing the software.

If you get any "New Hardware Wizard" just close the window.

Install the CD software. (The CD should work for XP.)

Reboot.
