When you scan a document, basically all you're doing is taking a picture of it. You end up with an image file that you can view, but not a text file that you can edit. You need an optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the scanned image into text.
The CD that comes with an all-in-one printer or standalone scanner almost always includes some OCR software. You didn't give a model number so I can't look it up on Lexmark's site to see what downloads are available, but you can check for yourself if you don't have the disc. OCR capability is also available if you have Microsoft Office installed, and you can find under "Microsoft Office Tools". Several free OCR applications are also available on the Web.
OCR programs aren't 100% accurate. The don't always get it right, so expect to have to do some correcting in the text file that's created. Some fonts, sizes and page layouts confuse the software, and some programs are better than others. But in any case, it's better than having to type the entire document in by hand.
This could mean your PC overheated, had a error or another problem causing Windows to force it to shut down. Is the fan in your PC working right? If it isn't working (correctly), buy a new one. If you don't know how, here's a good guide how to. If it is working correctly, a error might caused it. If so, Windows 7 will find a solution for it. Check the white flag next to the internet and volume icons. If these to are not the case, your PC might doesn't have enough memory to hold image effects and too less RAM (Memory) could cause a unexpected shutdown. Don't hesitate to ask me more! Thanks for using FixYa, and have a great day.
This generally indicates a driver error. Download and run the Scan Diagnostic utility
Download the HP Scan Diagnostic utility .
When prompted, select Open or Run to start the download and run the installer, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
Try the scan again.
The Scan Diagnostic utility checks the physical connection between the device and the computer and address the issues with the following components of the scanning software:
PML (Printer Management Language)
Yellow DOT4 entries

Multiple HP Digital Imaging Monitors
If an error condition is identified with any of these items, a red X ( ) appears next to the item. If there is no error condition, a green check mark ( ) is displayed next to the item. The utility is equipped with a Fix button to correct the error conditions. Run the Unexpected Internal Error and Communications Failure patch

Double-click the patch to install it on the computer.

Try and open MS Word and import a picture into a document via scan, follow the prompts in Word and it should work fine. If you don,t have MS Word you can download a completely compatible application at Open Office.org. It also has the same functionality is free and allows you to save documents as .doc, .xls, etc. Sometimes a scanner requires additional software or drivers in addition to functioning as a printer. I have found scanning internal to an application a workaround or test for the scanner. If this works I would review the installation or contact the manufacturer or website. Or post and we can give it another try.
While I am trying to scan the images, I am getting the error Code[ffff:0024] & I am unable to scan anything from Epson 1500 model. While I switch on the scanner, it sounds lot from the scanner for continuous 2 minutes. I couldn't get scanned anything ... please give me the solution.
I believe these features have to be enabled in the administrative console with keys. There is a known issue on these printers where if it is shut down it restores the system defaults. If it was working then stopped, these features may have to be re-enabled by the printer distributor.
