My printer works fine using the "print" button on screen and the "copy" button on the computer. When I select the "scan" button on the printer it tells me the USB cable is not connected.

Check the owner's manual if the scanner requires USB 2.0 to operate correctly. If it does your USB cable needs to be 2.0 specification instead of the original 1.1 specification. That would go for the computer as well.

If the above comments don't apply uninstall the software for both the printer and scanner; restart the computer; re-install all the software; restart the computer... and it should work unless the scanner part of the printer has a problem.

FAILS TO COPY FROM A SCAN


Hi

Scanning takes an image on a document on the scanner's platten and converts it to a digital file format stored on your computer.

Copying is scanning + printing.

To copy, you do not need to separately scan first and then print. Just select how many copies you need on the number pad, then press either the Black or the Colour COPY buttons on the scanner (or open the printer's/scanner's software and click on COPY), while it's connected to the computer and the document will automatically be scanned and printed (copied).

I hope this helps.

How to print a regular document from Microsoft Word, Excel.


Instead of pressing the start button to print, you need to press the small ON/OFF button. The start button works to copy/scan. But to print, you will need to turn the printer on first. Once the printer is on, the computer should recognize it fine and allow you to print from your applications.

Have an x2350 scan,copy and print i can print but


You will need to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver again, since the driver installation seems to be incomplete. Please follow the steps given below:

To uninstall, please follow the steps given below:

1. Click on "Start" and "All Programs."
2. Go to the "Lexmark X2300 series."
3. Click on "Lexmark Uninstall."
4. Click on "Next."
5. Click on "Finish."
6. Click on "Restart Windows" and unplug the USB cable.

You may copy and paste the web address below to access the Lexmark X2350 Vista driver to install:
http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:487:0:0&emeaframe=&fileID=12233&searchLang=en&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista
Please use the following steps to download the Lexmark X2350 Vista driver to your desktop:

1. Select "Window Vista" from the drop down list
2. Click on "Download Now."
3. On the "File Download" screen, choose "Save." 4. The next screen will be titled "Save As." Choose to "Save in Desktop" and click "OK."
5. You should see files being transferred.

****Note**** If your browser uses a different file downloading format than specified above, you will need to resort to your browsers help files for downloading instructions. The object of steps 1 - 4 is to download the driver to your desktop. This way it is easily accessible.

6. Once the files have completed downloading, double click on the icon with your file name.
7. On the "Win Zip Self-Extractor" screen click "OK." To unzip the downloaded file choose "Unzip."
8. A screen will then display the number of files unzipped successfully, click "OK."
9. Please follow the on screen instructions to complete installation of your Lexmark printer.

Note: Please plug the USB cable when prompted while installing the driver. The USB cable should still be removed from the system, and the on-screen prompts will remind you of this. Eventually, you will get to a screen asking you to plug in the USB cable. This screen also has an "OK" button. Do not hit this button yet. First, plug in the USB cable. The screen should automatically detect and install the Lexmark X2350 scanner and printer drivers.

Hi,
As you have already worked with Tech support at Dell, they may have exploited all the options but do try the following steps and tell me if that worked
1. DIsconnect you printer from the computer
  1. Press the down arrow button until Maintenance is highlighted and press the Select button.

  2. Press the down arrow button until Reset Defaults is hightlighted and press the Select button.

  3. The printer displays a confirmation message. Highlight Yes and press the Select button
This would reset your printer to factory defaults.

2. Unistall the drivers using the following file
R166225 .zip from the link below
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/format.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&deviceid=9913&libid=40&releaseid=R166225&vercnt=1&formatcnt=0&SystemID=PRN_PHT_964&servicetag=&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=-1&impid=-1
-> Save the file to desktop
->Double click to extract the file and see where the file is being extracted.
-> Go to extracted file folder ,right click on the file named setup and left click on run as adminstrator.
-> Follow on screen instructions and it would uinstall the printer

3. Restart your computer.
4. Install the drivers back on to the computer using the printer cd. Note :connect the printer only when prompted on the screen.

Once the printer has been installed , we need to update the printer aswell .

5. Download the printer firmware from the link below
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R114639&SystemID=PRN_PHT_964&servicetag=&os=WLH&osl=en&deviceid=9913&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=2&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=40&fileid=151153

6. Follow on screen instructions to install the same
7. Check if the printer works after this , otherwise its time for a new one.
