Question about Lexmark X4500 MFP Flatbed Scanner

4 Answers

Setting up I bought the x4500mfp from ebay. I just got the power supply today. I have connected the ethernet to the scanner and my printer. When I turned the power on, the screen remains blank. What do I need to do? DO I need drivers for the unit? I have looked at the manual online but it does not say, I want to be able to use all of its features: email scanned copies to my computer, fax and print. Please help me.

Did you try to adjust the contrast button on the front left side of the unit? Also, did you here the power supplies fan come on when you plugged just it into the wall? And did the scanners internal fans come on when you switched the power switch "on" on the back of the unit. The other common problem I've seen is the cable from the operator panel to the MFD (the metal case on the bottom of the unit that houses the motherboard, hard drive, memory, etc.

    Once you get this unit wokring I highly reccomend you go to http://support.lexmark.com/printerfirmwa... and enter "r109" to dowload the latest firmware. Then go back to that same page and enter "907306" to download the latest software for the unit. Both downloads include directions on how to update. The second download is big and takes a while to update the unit - about 15~20 minutes. If you need any help email me at jeremy (dot) houle (at) xtreemkreations (dot) com These updates fix issues like ADF lamp warm up timing (one of the biggest issues I've seen) and update the new "daylight saving time".

Interested to know if you got it running. I've also got a X4500 - from cold it takes quite a few minutes to initialise and warm up. I had a problem with a ADF lamp error but i found by locking and unlocking the scanner lock and restarting it a few times it finally got going and worked OK once warm and left running.

Very useful post above from harly4d!

Cheers Ross

Can I connect canoscan 4400f using ethernet cable


i believe is not possible to connect to a router. printers ar designed to be connected to computers via ethernet cables and bluetooth when both devices are bluetooth enabled.(must have a wifi bluetooth ethernet card installed or usb bluetooth installed via usb). is you want to have the printer to be used bye more than one computer at home or office. you must set up each computer to the printer as well.. in control panel look for printers.then set up the conections.if computer 1 is printing a document. computer 2 will have to wait. when done. then will print work for computer 2.

My hp printer 6110 officejet all in one keep giving message scanner failure when i want to print something


Please make sure that the printer is connected to a wall outlet and not to a surge protector because surge protector distributes the total electric supply equally to each and every device connected to that surge protector. Printer might work and might not with a surge protector but it will always work fine with a wall outlet till the hardware of the printer and power chord, adapter are working fine.

some times scanner failure error comes if it is not getting enough power supply.So if it is connected to a surge protector then I will suggest you to disconnect it and connect it directly to a wall outlet.
Now scan or copy any document and see if something happens.

If not the do check while you press scan or copy button the scanner light is moving or not?
If scanner light is not moving then do a hard re-set.

Hard Re-Set :
- disconnect power chord from the back of the printer and then from wall outlet or surge protector.
- wait for 40 secondsand then connect the power adapter to wall outlet and then to the back of the printer. The try to scan or copy....still not working then check if the scanner bulb is glowing or not?

If scanner bulb is not glowing and if you dont hear any noise while you press scan or copy...then printer hardware has gone bad and you need to replace the printer

Our scanner says check supplies and will not scan. What does this mean?


Make sure you have a network connection and can ping the unit. Had one today that only shown Check Supplies and Administration. Found loose patch cable and then Email option appeared.

Printer worked yesterday and today it has no


It's a bad power supply. go to http://www.ebay.com and search for HP PSC 750 and there are numerous of new power supplies for the printer. Or, the wiring is dead inside the printer. Go to http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01321436&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=57769&lang=en

It's either the PSU or a bad USB cable.

Does the X4500 work as a stand-alone scanner


The X4500MFP requires a compatible Lexmark printer in order to do any functions.

Scanner


Try scanning from the Kodak AiO Home Center software. If that fails, you should get better feedback. Unfortunately, I have run into this when my ink is low. While it should not matter, is does. Check to see if you need to replace a cartridge.
Good Luck.
