This is the response I got from Lexmark.

Thank you for contacting us regarding this matter. I appreciate the

The Vista drivers available on the Lexmark website do not contain the
All-In-One Center. They are minimum drivers. Although the scan drivers
are shipped with the web package, they cannot be used by the All-In-One
Center since it is not included. Please use Windows Scanners and
Cameras or Photo Gallery for Scanning.

Please follow the steps given below to perform the WIA scanning:

1. Click on "Start," and "Windows photo gallery."

2. Under "Windows photo gallery" click on "File" and " Import from
camera and scanner."

3. Select the "Lexmark X5150 printer" and click on the import button.

4. To begin the scanning process, click "Scan Now."

May be too much info blocking up print memory. Before printing off sites, make sure you clear print queue and slect printer friendly versions. Check to see if your printer has a work online or offline setting in preferences too.

I had the same problem. Fixed it by reinstalling the drivers for the motherboard (USB drivers in particular). Hope this helps.

The scanner function on my Canon D480 has not worked since the installation.

Go to the scanner company website and see if there are drivers available for download. Sounds as if you may not have the proper drivers installed.

Can't use it with my Mac : one component missing

What is the version of your Mac operating system? It would be best that you uninstall any existing printer driver first > reboot your computer > then reinstall the printer driver.

Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark X5470 Printer Driver on your computer. Select your operating system > click on "FILTER" > click on the driver under Recommended Downloads > download and execute the file. Simply follow the instructions on your computer screen to complete the installation.

Then try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

Used x4270 .no cd to download. list of printers does not inclued 4270. having problems with error 1200. took out old cartlidge and don't know how to put them back. have printer connected to computer...

Try to fix the 1200 error first. The error indicates that the cartridge carrier has stalled. Please refer to this article to fix the problem: 1200 Error Message on a Lexmark X4250/X4270/F4270 All-In-One. Once your cartridge carrier is functioning properl, re-insert your cartridges - How to Install Ink Cartridges In Lexmark X4200 Series AIO.

You can download the Lexmark X4270 driver by visiting the Lexmark website at Select your operating system, download and execute the file. Follow the instructions on your computer screen.

For your scanning concern, especially when scanning documents, you will need the Lexmark OCR scan software to do the job. The scan software is available only on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you lost the disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I have a lexmark x4270 but no start up cd how can i get it to print

Since when this problem started.. have you install new cartridge in it?

Check the cables and resume power again and let us know.. also check if any Print spooler services are showing any error messages.

Check for any entreies marked in the device manager for Printer or USB connection.

Get me back as soon as possible to fix the problem

Lexmark 1270 scans but will not print

With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.

To fix a fouled install :
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue
