    Have you installed the software for your printer? Lexmark has always been good about step by step instructions for setting up and using your printer/scanner/etc.

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, 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

I have my lexmark al in one scan,printer,fax hooked up to my laptop. I dont know how to scan pictures onto my laptop?

Hi there

for the canner to work, you have to install the printer with the CD that came with the printer. The installation software will setup the scanner so that you can scan by pressing the scan button on the printeror from the Lexmark Productivity Suite on your computer.

If you do not have the original CD, you must download the software from www.lexmark.combut be sure to download the full printer install, else the scanner will be installed.

Using the printer operator panel to scan:
  1. Open the top cover, and then load an original document facedown on the scanner glass.
  2. Close the top cover to avoid dark edges on the scanned image.
  3. Make sure that the printer is connected to a computer, and that both the printer and the computer are on.
  4. From the printer control panel, press Scan button.
  5. Follow the instructions on the computer screen.

I installed the Lexmark x4530 and continue to get

Usually a cable is not hooked up or the printer port is not enabled.

If it uses a USB port it should auto detect the port.
If this is the case you will need to download a new driver from the Lexmark site that matches your operating system and install it.

I using lexmark x215 i dont have cd but i installed drivery from lexmark site now my printer is ok but i dont know how to scan my docunments bc i dont have scan software where i scan my docunments so tell...

  1. Check the connections between the two machines.
  2. Lift the printer's document lid. Examine the scanning surface and the underside of the lid for dust and fingerprints.
  3. Put the document you wish to scan face-down on the glass. Use the alignment markers to help you square up the object. These are usually found on the left-hand edge of the scanning area.
  4. Close the printer's document lid slowly so the document does not shift position.
  5. Select a scan resolution. The higher the dpi (dots per inch) count, the sharper and more detailed the image.
  6. Push the scan button. You may have to do this on the printer itself or on your computer.
  7. Check the preview of your scan on your computer. Depending on your all-in-one printer and software, you may have to prompt your computer to display the preview for you.
  8. Edit the image as it appears on your computer if you want to make changes. Your scanning software might let you enlarge, resize or otherwise manipulate the final product.StepAccept the scan and save. Return the original document to a safe location.

Cant figure out how to scan something

You can start scanning a document two dfferent ways--from the printer or from your computer. With either method, the first thing you need to do is place whatever you want to scan face down on the glass of the printer. Close the top cover.

If you want to do everything from the printer, press the button with the diamond on it. "Save Photo" should appear on your computer. You can then choose a name for the file and a location where you want to save it.

To proceed from the computer instead, you can start the Lexmark Imaging Studio. Click "Scan," select the Document option, and then click "Start."

That should get you started!
