Lexmark, scanner asks for pin code and won't scan without it.
Hi there! Up to a few days ago I could easily scan documents to my computer.
However, I tried to scan a document. However, after after I selected "scan to computer", the device asked me to enter PIN number... I have NO idea what this pin number is, nor do I remember entering one!
So now I simply cannot scan to may computer...
Re: Lexmark, scanner asks for pin code and won't scan...
This drove me mad for about 2 hours (I've just experienced the same problem), but have finally found the solution!
Firstly, it depends on what Lexmark you have (as different printers use different software)...
For my Lexmark which is an S600, I went into the program 'Lexmark home' which was in the lexmark folder on the start menu and in my lexmark software folder, went to 'settings' and then 'Network computer name'. From here you can set the pin.
According to people experiencing this problem with other Lexmarks, you can do this via the equivalent 'productivity suite' program through 'network settings'.

Hi peoples. I had the same problem not too long ago. in the end i uninstalled and re-intalled the printer on my PC (with Vista OS) and have not had any issues in scanning since. Hope it works for you guys too.
Usually any scanned document etc will go to a folder in documents & settings so have a look there, another way is to scan and save it as a special name, or simply remeber the default name, and then do a search for that file and when you find it, THATs where they go :)
Usually when ya scan it should ask ya where to save?
