If you haven't given up on your Dell AIO 966 yet (today I almost did, in fact I placed an order for a new printer today, and I think I might cancel it if this works) -- try this. See if it works for you too. It's a kludge but it might help.
Get the printer's IP address (print the network settings page or whatever). Browse to that address in your web browser (that is, if your printer is at 192.168.0.101, go to http://192.168.0.101 in Internet Explorer or Firefox or whatever browser you use). Click on "Configuration," then "Scan to Network Host Management." Check the box for "Delete all hosts" and click on the "Delete" button. Wait for it to finish doing its thing, then go to the printer, power it off, wait a few seconds, and power it back on. Wait a minute or two for your PC to find the printer and connect to it again, then try your scan.
If yours behaves like mine, it will scan now. Now, that would just prove to me that the issue is with the darn firmware in the printer -- and Dell should fix it, even if the printer is discontinued. They've heard us griping for years, they should fix it!

Impact s305 printer won't scan. it's stuck on "downloading application list"


Try using the Lexmark Printer Home when scanning. If you have a PC, to access it click on Start > All Programs > Lexmark > Printer Home. You can scan to a .jpeg, PDF or .doc.

If you're scanning from the control panel of your printer and you're getting an error message, "Cannot Retrieve Application List", most probably your firewall is blocking your printer from downloading the applications. You might want to add the Lexmark files in the exception of your firewall. Click on the link on how to add exceptions to your firewall.

If you're trying to scan to email (email client), try to check this link: http://bit.ly/k0w0Hp

Lexmark X4580 (all in one wireless)


HI,

You can try out these two options one by one to fix it up:

A)
1 Unplug the printer.
2. Uninstall the drivers.
3. Reboot the machine.
4. Go to the lexmark site and download the drivers.
5. Install the new drivers.

B)You will get the "CANNOT RETRIEVE APPLICATION LIST" if your pc blocks the communication from the printer. This can be configured in your personal firewall. This can be Windows Firewall (found in Control Panel, Security Center), Symantec Client Firewall or similar. Depending on the configuration of this firewall you might or might not get pop-up messages from the firewall during installation. These pop-ups will allow you to permanently allow for this incoming communication. But your firewall might be set not to let you decide anything which will typically mean that the calls will be blocked out. This will often be the case if you have a company laptop configured by the company IT dept. You might then have to ask an admin to add exceptions the applications used by Lexmark as the configuration might not be open for you to change.

I think this is the complete list of applications:

Job Status Window Interface: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\W32X86\3\lxdijswx.exe
Lexmark Communications System: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\lxdicoms.exe
Lexmark Connect Time Executable: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\W32X86\3\lxditime.exe
Lexmark Device Monitor: C:\Program Files\Lexmark 3500-4500 Series\lxdiamon.exe
Lexmark Imaging Studio: C:\Program Files\Lexmark 3500-4500 Series\App4R.exe
Printer Communication System: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\lxdicfg.exe
Printer Status Window Interface: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\W32X86\3\lxdipswx.exe

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

I've installed the software for my x3550 printer, and when I try to scan a picture via wireless, I select my laptop and it shows on the display: "Downloading Applications List". After that it displays:...


Hi. This printer is wireless for the print function but not for the scan function, go figure. In order to scan you must hook up the printer to your puter via a USB wire.

Can't find where scan is stored. Looked everywhere in every file


Normal 0 Most applications default to the MY Documents or the MyPictures folders, look in these first.
If they are not there try this:
Open your scan software and scan a pic
After the scan completes watch closely, the application will show a location or a --scan to -- option.
At this point you can select a location for storage.
Another place to look is the application folder itself.
