Why its scan mode cannot retrieve application list?


When you use the scan function from the computer, the computer must have an application in stalled that receives and processes the scanned image. In other words their must exist and application that can open the file format of the scanned image (jpeg, pdf, txt or rtf, etc.). Several scanning software are available for free on the web freeOCR, paperscan, etc.
Your All in One must have shipped with some scanning software. Install it on the computer and use it to scan documents.

Lexmark x5650 cannot retrieve application list


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

I want to scan a document. I click Scan Mode. The printer responds, "Retreiving Application List," then "Cannot Retrieve Application List."


A problem occurs with your scan driver. You will need to reinstall it to correct the problem.

Another way to scan is to use the scanner option in your computer. Go to Control Panel. Double click the Scanners & Cameras icon. Feed your documents in the printer before starting the scan process.

Try it.
