Question about Lexmark X73 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have a lexmark X73 several years old but allways worked fine in the past all of a sudden it quit scanning or copying(it still prints however). when i try to scan to file a window pops up that says "scanner couldnt be enabled" when i close that window i get another that says "scanning was canceled by user or terminated abnormally" i have uninstalled and installed several times tryed different usb ports downloaded updates for windows (xp by the way if that makes a difference) any help would be most appreciated by the way the scanning light in the printer/scanner is allways on even when i turn the machine off. dont recall that being the case back in the good old days when all was good in my world thanks in advance for any help
Before we give up on the scanning/copying ability of your machine. Try unplugging the machine from the wall and from the computer for at least a couple minutes. If that doesn't work, You may also check for a factory reset switch or reset mode you can choose. http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?category=Drivers&ccs=229:1:0:94:0:0&os_group=WinXP&searchLang=en Last but not least. Uninstall the printer again, unplug it from the wall and computer. Make sure you restart the machine and even shut it down before trying to reinstall the drivers. The above site has a patch for the scanner. Not sure if its what may be ailing yours. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
