My lexmark X7500 scanner wont communicate with my dell inspiron

Ok - I just got a lexmark all in one printer/scanner/copy/fax wireless. I am not using the wireless I am using USB connection. Printer works fine, fax works fine BUT the scanner won't work. I have a Dell desktop Inspiron. I worked with a great tech from Lexmark for 2 hours today and he said it seems that this is a dell problem (and I actually believe the poor guy he did EVERYTHING possible from what I can tell) I mean - he spent 2 hours...anyway - anyone know what to do here? When I called Dell those nice guys (Gags and pukes) said they sure could help me ... to the tune of $70! or for free (my warranty) they could do a system restore (which my kid could do) Help! I love the printer and just can't afford anything else now (and of course my return time is over)

Lexmark X4550 Scanner not working


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.

Windows 7 64bit, home network. Lexmark interpret s405 all in one.Trying to scan with windows fax and scan. can printer with no problem. windows fax and scan cannot find scanner. I look in device manager...


Try to re-insert the installation disc that came with your printer. Run the disc and make sure to install the Lexmark scan driver. If you have a firewall enabled, make sure to allow all access to all Lexmark software and printer communication processes in the program rules/permissions for your firewall.

I just purchased your 705 professional series wireless printer. Can I use this with my non wireless computer laptop? thanks I have a Dell Inspiron computer.


Yes, the printer can still be connected to your computer via the USB cable. Before connecting the printer to your computer, I suggest you insert the installation cd in your computer first. Run the software and follow the instructions on it. While it is installing, the software will also show you a step-by-step instructions on how to setup the printer itself. Hope this helps.

My Dell A810 won't scan. Prints ok, copies ok but won't scan. Have Vista home Premium and a new Dell Inspiron. have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer twice but still won't scan.


Can't remember, but I believe you should have a fault programme which can access to run a self check?

All in one means able to send a "Fax".

If I'm right you have two settings for faxing, either entering doc in to tray or placing on scanner to be copied then faxed.
If so and you are able to fax to anoth er fax number see if you can send fax via your scanner. I'm am trying to find out if your scanner then starts up, strode lights up and copies, least you know important bits are working.

If it does light up, chances are present prog is not vista compat. Go to www.hp.com enter your printer details search it will come up with latest updates and full progs, look for the vista prog. Good Luck.
