Question about Lexmark X6650 4-In-One Wireless InkJet Printer

1 Answer

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... HELP! :) thanks, Arnon

    Here's some info on scan pin codes, it implies that something's changed on your PC configuration, not on the AIO:



    Why am I being asked for a PIN?

    PINs are a security measure used to restrict the scanned information from going into certain locations, or to keep

    what is being scanned from being seen or used by others. You may be prompted to enter a PIN if the network

    computer you are scanning to requires one.

    To learn how PINs get assigned to network computers, see the Help for the printer software associated with your

    operating system

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'.

Hope this helps.

    Thank you paulyrussell. The description above didn't tell me anything that the booklet that came with my printer did. I followed your suggestion with my Pinnacle Pro and now it works great. Thanks again.

    This is what I have spent hours and hours looking for! The weird thing is that no box was checked. That should have meant that no passwprd was rrequired. That was not the case. The Lexmark simply would not scan to my computer until I entered a password and made it mandatory! Very strange. Lexmark should be ashamed they could not tel us how to get here!

How do I scan documents from Lexmark X7350 to my computer?


Make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your computer. The software is available in the install disc that came with your printer. Scanning a document:
1 Make sure the printer is connected to a computer, and both the printer and the computer are on.
2 Load an original document faceup into the ADF or facedown on the scanner glass.
3 Press Scan Mode.
4 Press or repeatedly until the destination to which you want to scan appears.
5 Press Start Color or Start Black.
6 To scan multiple pages from the scanner glass, place successive pages face down on the scanner glass and
press Start Color or Start Black.

Hi fixya i have presented this problem a few days


Go to Start\Programs\Panasonic and look for the "Network MFP Utilities"
There is a "Network Scanner Configuration" software that create
s a "Location" for the scanner. The location can well be a network drive or a shared folder on your computer.
Once you create the location, the scanner will pick it up automatically so when you want to scan, you will be able to select the destination (i.e. the location you created)
You can create several locations to be able to save scanned docs in more than one place.

How do I scann a document/picture and where does it go once I scan


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?

Lexmark x73mfp scanner to windows vista


You can use the Lexmark z42 drivers that come with Vista to make it print but I doubt you could get it to scan. New MFP are a dime a dozen these days so it may be time to upgrade.
