You don't need a scanner code (pin ?) to scan. Here are the steps from Lexmark Support:

Step Action 1 Make sure the printer is configured to scan over a network. 2 Load an original document face down on the scanner glass. 3
From the control panel, press pattlnk_1182007_1150-uparrow.gif or pattlnk_1182007_1146-downarrow.gif repeatedly until Scan is highlighted. 4
Press pattlnk_1182007_1151-selectbutton.gif. 5
Press pattlnk_1182007_1150-uparrow.gif or pattlnk_1182007_1146-downarrow.gif repeatedly until the computer you want to scan to is highlighted. 6
Press pattlnk_1182007_1151-selectbutton.gif. 7
If you set a PIN during network setup and are being prompted for it:

  1. Enter the PIN using pattlnk_1182007_1151-leftarrow.gif and pattlnk_1182007_1152-rightarrow.gif to select a digit location and using pattlnk_1182007_1150-uparrow.gif and pattlnk_1182007_1146-downarrow.gif to select a value for that digit.

  2. Press pattlnk_1182007_1151-selectbutton.gif.
Wait until the printer has finished downloading the scan applications list. 9
Make your selections using the control panel buttons. 10
Press the green Start button (pattlnk_1182007_1144-scan%20start%20small.gif).

Hope this helps.

Hello am using sharp ar165 m copier machine .and am installing my pc also but scaner is not working please help me.

How are you doing? In order for scanner to work in all multi-functional printers, you must install all functions. While installing printer Sharp Ar165m, it will ask you if you need to install scanner and you must select that box otherwise it will install printer alone. Also there is an option where you are to configure the button keys on scanner function, please configure the buttons while installing. This will allow you to press scanner key on the copier to start scanning without necessarily selecting from the computer otherwise --- will appear and nothing happens. So insert the software CD and remember to select scanning option.

How do I scan to my computer using the Cannon Imageclass MF4370 without getting up each time and pressing the scan button on the printer?

Sorry, you must get up each time and press scan button!

...or you can tell the copier under user mode - machine sett. - that you want scan as first function. That the machine will allways on scaner function. But when you want to copy or fax you will need to get up and transfer to wanted function, but scaner will be allways on :-)
