Question about Lexmark X2600 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lexmark 2600 scanning to MAC-no can do

The 2600 won't scan onto a MAC using OSX. Hitting the scan button on the Lexmark launches Mac's Image Capture, but no matter what you choose, the SCAN command tab won't highlight and allow you to choose it. The manual's MAC section has scanning instructions for old MAC OS, but OSX and Image Capture do recognize the printer and model.

Edward, I have this same problem. Were you able to solve it? Anyone, can you help? I have installed the drivers. When I connect the printer to my Mac, it launches ImageCapture and previews the scan fine. But I am unable to get the "scan" button to become active, adn there is no place to save the scan. If I click "save pdf to iphoto" it saves a pdf of the entire screen, rather than just the photo. Appears not to be Mac compatible for scanning purposes. Thank you for your help.

    Ok--found the answer on another help forum.

    If you have this same problem: click on the photo/document that is previewed in ImageCapture. Drag to the area you want to scan. THEN the "scan" button will become active and you can save your jpg.

    Not exactly intuitive, but thank goodness it works!

I can not scan from my HP Photosmart C7180 All in one. Mac OSX 10.6.8 I can copy, print but not scan.


Launch the OSX system preferences, click on the Print & Scan Icon located in the Hardware row, select your printer in the left hand column, click the Scan button above the right hand box, click on the Open Scanner button, a new window will open, click on the scan button in the upper right hand corner of that new window, set your document on the flat glass panel of your multi function printer/scanner, and click the scan button located in the lower right hand corner of the window, once scanning is complete, your document image should appear in a new window and save the image from there.

Scan wont work on mac psc 1410v


First are you trying to scan using the scan button on the all-in-one or from the computer? If you are trying to use the scan buttons, you need to install the HP full-feature software package: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=219&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=458978#N193 . (If you need to expand the section marked drivers.) Uninstall the printer and disconnect the data cable before installing this full software.

If you installed the basic drivers that came with the Mac OS, you can scan using Apple Preview and Image Capture software. You can also acquire a scan from the Print & Fax > Printer browser. Open the software from the dock or from the Applications folder. In Apple Preview, choose File > Import from Scanner. In the Image Capture program select the all-in-one from the list of devices.

For the Print and Scan. Open System Preferences from the Apple Menu. Click Print & Fax and select the all-in-one. Click the Scan tab and Open Scanner. Then click Scan.

With the HP software you can launch a scan from the computer or from the scanner (but only if the monitoring program is running). You need to set up the HP Utility for the scan task manager.
This site has the full set of steps: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02456650&tmp_task=useCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=458978#N2158 .

Sometimes an all-in-one will work for printing but not for scanning due to a damaged cable. Scanning requires bi-directional communication with the printer. Try replacing the data cable. If you use a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection to the computer.

I hope this helps.

How to scan with mac


    1. Connect a compatible scanner to your computer. A list of compatible scanners is available in technical document 107203 "Mac OS X 10.2: Scanners Compatible With Image Capture "

    2. Install any necessary software drivers that came with the scanner.

    Note: Not all scanners require the installation of additional software drivers.

    3. Turn on the scanner.

    4. Press the scan button on the scanner. See the documentation that came with the scanner for specific instructions. Image Capture opens automatically and a preview scan appears.

    5. Select the area of the image you want to scan.

    Figure 1 Preview image with area to be scanned selected

    6. Click Options in the toolbar to adjust settings specific to your scanner.

You need to download a "Twain Driver and Epson Scan Utility" from
the Epson Website.

But before you start downloading the Twain Driver we need to delete
the previously installed driver in your computer.

1.) Click and open the MAC or Apple Hard drive / Application and trash Epson Scan and Epson Scanner Monitor ( drag it to your trash )
2.) MAC hard drive / Library / Image Capture / Twain Data Source., we need to trash ( *.ds file )
3.) MAC hard drive / Library / Application Support., trash the Epson Scanner Module
4.) Disconnect the connection ( USB ) between the printer and your MAC.
5. ) Empty your Trash bin and restart your MAC

After the restart we can now download and install the Twain driver to your MAC.

Fuji j10 - my mac wont recognise it even using finepix


I had the same problem with my camera & mac.  I got this off the Fuji site and it worked for me:
If images cannot be downloaded from the camera to a Macintosh, check the status of the camera and the Macintosh and resolve the problem accordingly.

1) Check the status of the camera and Macintosh.
1. Connect your camera to the Macintosh and turn the camera on.
2. Open the "Applications" folder on the Macintosh HD.
3. Double-click "Image Capture".
* If the "Imaging device not connected" message appears, follow the steps described in [Checking the connection between the camera and PC].
4. Select "Preferences" from the "Image Capture" menu.
5. The procedure for using the Image Capture Preferences window differs depending on the OS version used. Use the correct procedure for your version of Mac OS.
- Mac OS 10.4: Click "General" in the Image Capture Preferences window.
- Mac OS 10.3: Click "Camera" in the Image Capture Preferences window.
- Mac OS 10.2: Simply proceed to the next step.
6. In "Items launched at camera connection", select "FPVBridge" and then click the [OK] button.
* If FPVBridge is not among the displayed items, follow the steps in [Displaying FPVBridge] below.
7. Quit "Image Capture".

If you implement the above procedure up to step 6, FinePix Viewer launches automatically.
* To stop FinePix Viewer from launching automatically, follow the steps in [FinePix Viewer Setup] below.
