Lexmark X2480 scanner won't work

I have a lexmark X2480 printer/scanner, and while the printer works fine, the scanner won't. It loads, the printer does nothing,then it tells me it's done scanning. I've tried installing new software, and it did nothing.

SOURCE: Vista/Lexmark nightmare Installing?

everyone seems to have the same problem with lexmark printers .it seems that lexmark have violated the trade description act by stating that there printers are vista compatable which they clearly arent .according to the varius websights i have just visited there are a lot more than 7 disgruntled lexmark customers. ian from lexmark has stated it will be one or two months before the correct software is available . two months from when? it would be interesting to hear if guest jan 17 has received his disc from india yet, ev posted jan 24

hey i also had this type of problem. but i solved it and hope it will solve yours too.
first of all uninstall all ur hp drivers and softwares related to the hp printer. then restart your pc. now disconnect ur printer with ur computer and turn it off and again on after 15 secs.
now insert the cd which i have got with the hp printer in the cd-driver of ur pc and install the driver.
after the installation is complete, connect ur printer, but do not remove ur cd.
then start scanning, and if it will again ask for installing driver, u dont have to worry it will install it from the cd.
this would surely help u, if problem persists, please tell me.

SOURCE: X2480 unable to bypass print/scan of alignment page

To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer. 


Hope this help. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

How to get to cartridge to change it I can't figure how to lift top to get cartridge


Perhaps this User Guide(for Lexmark X2450, X2470 and X2480) link to the Lexmark website will help. Just clink on this link: http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/2400/ug_en.pdf. Scroll to Maintaining the Printer, Page 42, for changing/installing cartridges. In some cases, even when the printer is on and you lifted the scanner unit cover, somehow the cartridge carrier won't go to the center for loading position. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the scanner unit open, hold the solid white strip in the middle inside the printer. Other end of it is connected to the cartridge carrier. Slowly drag the carrier to the center for loading position. Change the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug printer back to power source. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.
