    Kind regards

It doesn't on

If the problem cannot be fixed by establishing updated drivers; then, the problem is in the scanner control system. A printer may work fine as a stand alone unit, but the scanner could be defective and not function.

Lexmark x4500 says unsupported left cartridge. I have checked it and it looks ok.

Try to clean contacts with a cloth napkin or cloth (and those on the printer)

I turn on my X4500 scanner, It begins the inialization, gets to 100% and just sits there. It does not progress any further.

Usually that's a network problem, try doing a factory default of the network base hold the right and the check button "go" button til you see the menu for maintenance then look for network restore part, do a factory default of the network and then restart the scanner again after the printer starts up again

should be good to go

Setting up

Did you try to adjust the contrast button on the front left side of the unit? Also, did you here the power supplies fan come on when you plugged just it into the wall? And did the scanners internal fans come on when you switched the power switch "on" on the back of the unit. The other common problem I've seen is the cable from the operator panel to the MFD (the metal case on the bottom of the unit that houses the motherboard, hard drive, memory, etc.
