Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I need to scan and dont know how to do it ?
First, I'm assuming you are using some flavor of windows, but if not this may not be completely accurate. I'm also going to use windows XP in any directions I give, but if you are using Vista, it will be pretty close.
There are a few ways to do scanning. If you have a favorite graphics application like photoshop or paint shop pro, you can scan directly into these apps using the "Acquire" option. This is usually done by going to File->Acquire in the application, and then selecting your scanner.
The printer also probably came with a software suite for scanning as well. If you go to Start->All Programs->Lexmark 5400 Series, you should see something along the lines of All in One Center (may be slightly differently named, but it's in this folder). Once you find this application, it should be pretty easy to scan.
As a third option, if you don't have a graphics application, I like to use Paint.net, which is a free piece of software you can find at
Once you download, install it, and get it started, to scan a picture go to :
File->Acquire, and select "From Scanner or Camera"
It should present you with a selection dialog where you should see your lexmark AIO. Select it and it will bring up the scan dialog, where you can select Color Picture, Black and White, etc.
It is a good idea to hit the preview button first and let it find your picture. Then hit the Scan button and it will scan!
Hope this is helpful
