Question about HP LaserJet M3027x All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Pin code incorrect

We own a M3027X all in one printer and can no longer access the scan option due to a pin number. However, the personnel in my shop have somehow placed installed a pin and now no one can unlock it. Any tips on how to uninstall the pin code so that we can resume scanning?

I think you should read your manual about resetting to factory default. It should reset all pins and password that you have.
Bot the downside is that it also reset all your customized setting to the printer, ex: paper setting, resolution setting, etc. That means you have to do all customization from the time you first bought that printer :)

You don't need a scanner code (pin ?) to scan. Here are the steps from Lexmark Support:

Step Action 1 Make sure the printer is configured to scan over a network. 2 Load an original document face down on the scanner glass. 3
From the control panel, press pattlnk_1182007_1150-uparrow.gif or pattlnk_1182007_1146-downarrow.gif repeatedly until Scan is highlighted. 4
Press pattlnk_1182007_1151-selectbutton.gif. 5
Press pattlnk_1182007_1150-uparrow.gif or pattlnk_1182007_1146-downarrow.gif repeatedly until the computer you want to scan to is highlighted. 6
Press pattlnk_1182007_1151-selectbutton.gif. 7
If you set a PIN during network setup and are being prompted for it:

  1. Enter the PIN using pattlnk_1182007_1151-leftarrow.gif and pattlnk_1182007_1152-rightarrow.gif to select a digit location and using pattlnk_1182007_1150-uparrow.gif and pattlnk_1182007_1146-downarrow.gif to select a value for that digit.

  2. Press pattlnk_1182007_1151-selectbutton.gif.
Wait until the printer has finished downloading the scan applications list. 9
Make your selections using the control panel buttons. 10
Press the green Start button (pattlnk_1182007_1144-scan%20start%20small.gif).

Hope this helps.

How to find the PIN number to scan for a Lexmark X4650

Unless you have setup a PIN for scanning when you installed the printer the default PIN is 0000. If you setup a pin and don't remember, go to the Lexmark Productivity Studio, click on setup and diagnose printer, then on left side select Advanced, another screen will pop up click on Networking and another screen will appaer at the bottom there is a link that reads Change your PC name and PIN for network scanning, click there and you should be able to see and/or change the PIN.
Good Luck and don't forget to rate this answer.

Lexmark, scanner asks for pin code and won't scan without it.

This drove me mad for about 2 hours (I've just experienced the same problem), but have finally found the solution!

Firstly, it depends on what Lexmark you have (as different printers use different software)...

For my Lexmark which is an S600, I went into the program 'Lexmark home' which was in the lexmark folder on the start menu and in my lexmark software folder, went to 'settings' and then 'Network computer name'. From here you can set the pin.

According to people experiencing this problem with other Lexmarks, you can do this via the equivalent 'productivity suite' program through 'network settings'.

Hope this helps.

Lexmark X4550

I have recently purchased the above printer and it did not come with any user documentation (installation via dowload from lexmark site). I therefore do not have a pin code to use the scanning devise. Is it a factory pin for all

Where do i get a pin number for my lexmark X4530 i would like to scan something plz thanks

Go to the Lexmark Imaging icon (located on the taskbar) and look to the left and down the bottom. You will see Network Settings, click on the "view or change network settings." When you get in, uncheck the "I WISH TO REQUIRE A PIN TO SCAN TO MY COMPUTER" and then press OK. This will remove the pin setting from your scanner. Lexmark technical support just did that for me, now my printer does not ask for a pin number.
