You need to reinstall the printer software, either using the printer disk or a download.

If you have the disk, then better using the disk.

Lexmark does not distribute replacement install disk for all models.

Contact Lexmark here, to see if the disk for your printer is available.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Click here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

A web page will open, follow instructions, select model, select operative system etc., and click on download .
Chose to download the file in my documents when asked.
After downloading, find the file,double click on the file ,then if you get in troubles, follow the instructions below to reset and reinstall drivers:

  • Unplug printer USB.
  • Go to control panel >> installed printers in Windows and remove (delete ) any installed printer from printer list.
  • Download driver from website, or use the disk and run the install file.
  • Follow driver installation wizard.
  • Plug back printer when prompted from installation wizard.

Lexmark 5400 series won't scan. Get message "cannot retrieve application list. I use a Mac


The first thing I would do is remove the program from your computer, then download the latest drivers from lexmark: visit
http://support.lexmark.com/index?locale=en&page=product&productCode=LEXMARK_X5470&segment=SUPPORT&userlocale=EN_US&frompage=null#1
choose your version of OS ( OS 10 X, 10.3, etc) and download the file.
Before you install the software in your computer, I would disconnect the printer's USB cable, and wait for the installation program to prompt you to connect it.
I believe that will take care of your problem.

I need to connect my phone line to my printer to enable me to send faxes, how do I do this.


Refer to the printer's User's Guide on how to connect your Lexmark X5470 to your telephone line for faxing. If the printer software is already installed on your computer, you can access the printer's User's Guide by going to the Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark 5400 Series -> User's Guide (applicable to Windows OS). If not, you can download it from the Lexmark website for free using this link: Lexmark 5400 Series All-In-One User's Guide. Scroll to page 12 for the fax setup instructions. Also, check page 71for faxing instructions (sending, receiving, etc.). Hope this helps.

I have a reacuruing problem I have the lexmark x1240


Go to your control Panel and double click on printers and open it. It should say "Lexmark 1200 series". Below this it should say "Ready". If it does'nt say Ready, rightclick the printer and click on Use online or offline. If you see "Lexmark 120 series copy 1, delete the copy and you should be ok. Also, make sure the lexmark is the dedicated printer.
