How do set up my lexmark pro901 to scan to my pc so that I can email the scans


Make sure the Lexmark Pinnacle Pro901 printer driver is installed on your computer. If you have the install disc that came with your printer, just insert it to your computer hard driver and follow the instructions on your computer screen. You can also the download the printer driver from the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/d3ftso. Select your operating system > download > execute the file. Again, just follow the instructions on your computer screen.
Note: The install disc contains the Lexmark OCR scan software necessary for scanning documents for editing and saving them as PDF files. The downloaded driver does not contain the OCR software.
To scan to your computer using the printer operator panel:

1. From the home screen, navigate to Scan to Computer: Scan > Scan to Computer

2. Touch USB-Connected Computer or the name of a network computer. The local or network computer is the destination that will receive the scan. Wait until the printer has finished downloading a list of the scan applications available on the selected computer.

3. Select an application (in your case your email), and then touch Accept.

4. Select the color, resolution quality and the original image size. If necessary, touch Accept each time you make a selection.

5. Press the start button to start scanning. The scan is complete when the application you selected in step 4 opens on the destination computer, and the scan appears within the application as a new file.

To scan to your computer using the printer software (Lexmark Printer Home):

For Windows:


1. Click Start.

2. Click All Programs or Programs, and then select the printer program folder from the list.

3. Select Printer Home.

4. Choose your printer from the printer drop-down list.

5. Click Email, and then select Photo, Document or PDF.

Note: You can select Document only if an OCR application is stored on your computer. Scanning starts and the scan progress dialog appears.

6. When the scan is finished, a new e-mail message is created with the scanned document automatically attached.

7. Compose your e-mail message. Note: If your e-mail program does not open automatically, then you can scan the document to the computer and then send it through e-mail as an attachment.


For Mac:


1. From the Finder desktop, double-click the printer program folder.

2. Double-click the printer Center to open the All-In-One Center.

3. From the "What is being scanned?" menu on the main screen, select a document type.

4. From the "How will the scanned image be used?" menu, choose To be viewed on monitor/web page.

5. From the "Send scanned image to" menu, choose an application.

6. Click Scan.

7. Retrieve the scanned image from the application, and then send it through e-mail as an attachment.



I hope this information has been helpful.

What exactly does the word 'scan' mean and what does it do?


"Scan" means the printer can "read" whatever is put on the glass. It can then generate a copy from the printer of what it "scanned/read" or it can save it to a file

Can not scan to my computer


Hello,

Scanning thru a wireless connection is not supported on these printers. Printing does not require that much data to be sent back to the computer, scanning of course does. Printers require a bi-directional signal path to allow scanning such as USB and parallel ports. Sorry to be the barer of bad news.
