Unlock scanner keeps appearing on my lexmark x85 printer

I recently moved to another state and unpacked my printer. When I connected everything again, the printer said "unlock scanner". The red lock/unlock switch is unlocked and always has been. Nothing will work on the printer now except turning it off and on. I have uninstalled and installed and it still says unlock scanner.

Go to the Lexmark web site here: http://support.lexmark.com/perl/support/support.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:0:0:0
- In the SEARCH BY MODEL box, type in X85 and click SEARCH
- In the SEARCH THE KNOWLEDGBASE box, type in UNLOCK SCANNER. It will show some instructions for the X83, but that was the little brother of the X85, so should work.

There could be something in the paper feeder that's blocking the paper path. Please follow steps below to identify and fix the problem:

1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Grab a flashlight and look inside for any debris.

3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris that could cause this error or problem.

6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

7. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power outlet to reset it.

Lexmark x85 multifunctional, not recognize cartidrige color


The cartridges are only installed through the printer itself and there is no installation of cartridges through the Lexmark software. You should ensure the Lexmark X85 has the cartridges installed in stand-alone mode. To do so, please follow the steps given below:
1. Push the "Menu" button 10 times, until "Maintenance" appears.
2. Then hit "Select" and "Change Cartridges" should appear.
3. Hit "Select" again. It will prompt you to open the lid and change the cartridges. Please do so.
4. When the lid is closed, the display will ask you if new or old cartridges were installed. If new, it may ask you to align the cartridges and you should do this too.
If it is not noticing a change, remove and reinsert the cartridges about 3 times in a row to re-establish pin connections. If this still presents you with a "Change Cartridge" or "Low Ink Level" message or something similar, try a different cartridge.

Lexmark x85 all-in-one inkjet printer not working with vista


hi jjzee,

it seems that there is no available driver that you can used for windows vista.

if you want, you can try to download the driver in this link http://driverscollection.com/?H=X85&By=Lexmark and hopefully you would be able to install it.

but if still there's no luck, better call lexmark and ask if they have driver for your printer that will work with windows vista.

have a great day ahead.

I need to install a lexmark x85 printer scanner


If you need to download the software/driver, go here: http://downloads.lexmark.com/perl/downloads/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:0:0:0
Search for your printer (X85), then select your operating system and language. After you download the file, double-click it to launch it and follow the instructions on your computer screen.

I think you just need to install the software, but if you also need to set up the hardware, refer to the instructions in the Setup Sheet, which you can find here: http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/x85/en/setup.pdf
Follow the instructions on the Setup Sheet through step 13. At step 14, rather than inserting the CD, download and install the software as I've instructed above.

You didn't specify which operating system you have.

If you have Vista, people have reported success using the Windows 2000 driver.

Drivers can be downloaded from here:
