Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

New hardware, old computer?

My old HP v series all-in-one dies, i bought a new HP L7580, it froze my dell E310, and after several restarts and reading many negative Amazon reviews, returned it;  now I bought a Lexmark X5470, after reading good reviews.  I cannot get it to work completely well.  I can receive faxes, and it copies pretty well;  but what I really need it to do, is to fax using the "Lexmark Fax Solutions" program, and it will not work.  I have been talking to tech support over the last few days.
I am starting to think the problem isn't with the product but with my computer, the OS is XP Media Center Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 2.  Do I now need to spend more money on an upgrade?

Running Vista Home Basic and tryin to install L7580 but

Most printers come with two cds one for MAC and the other for windows. Make sure you have the right one inserted. Also make sure your printer has drivers for vista. It wouldnt hurt to check to make sure your system is malware and virus free before reinstalling. and if you are infected clean the infection out and remove restore points and make a new one. If you dont remove infected restore points you will just reinfect the machine.

I have the scan button but it will not allow me to

Hi, The reason you're getting this is because you need to have compatible software installed on your computer. The disk that your printer came with will come with the relevant software but you might want to check the HP website for something more up to date as they have released fixes over time. Once you have that installed I would use the proper software to request the scan from the printer rather than trying to use the scan button on the printer itself. To be honest I have no idea why HP put that button on there as it makes things more complicated than they need to be. Oh, also worth noting that any software that can work with TWAIN compliant scanners should be able to see and use your L7580 without anything new so it may be worth checking anything already installed on your computer to see if it already does what you want. Hope that helps. Martin

HP Officejet Pro L7580 says I unplugged it, but I didn't!

It sounds like the printer is suffering from some kind of hardware failure which may have been caused by a power surge or similar.

I've never heard of this particular problem and I doubt HP will have either but my advice would be to contact HP support and see if they can provide more information or advise you better.

Unfortunately if my guess is right, there's really not a lot you can do except replace the printer with a new one.

Lexmark X2400... have one.. apparently it doesn't exist to anyone else? anyway...

According to Lexmarks site, they will be producing a driver that you can download for the X2400 to work with Vista shortly. They don't have a driver for Vista yet.

Sorry, you will have to wait or buy a new printer.

Good Luck
