Scanning with my printer

When I attempt to scan my printer display reads "downloading application list" - then reads "cannot retrieve application list. Using defaults" and I can take no action after that. How do I scan these photos onto my computer? when I try to scan the printer says downloading application list. Then it says can not retrieve application list. I am using Lexmark X5070. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer, I have unpluged the unit from the wall, I have unpluged the unit from the back and waited 30 seconds.

Re: scanning with my printer

No its seem to be some software clashed problem! Try to remove your old software and then try to clean registry and then install again then it should work!

Control panel indicates printer is off-line. I cannot fix it.

Try reinstalling the driver for your printer. It would be best to uninstall the driver first prior to installing it again.

You can download an updated driver here:

Also, make sure that the firmware of your printer is up to date:

The top left "hinge" won't seat, therefore the top feed can't be used to fax, scan or copy.

It's possible that the hinge of the scanner cover broke. If that's the case, you won't be able to scan from the ADF (Auto Document Feeder). If the printer is still under warranty, please call our technical support team to have the printer replaced.

Lexmark 205 copy and scan pages have small gray blocks all over the page

If this is also happening when you're printing from your computer, then it could be a problem with your printhead. Try to update the firmware of your printer. Just go to to download the firmware update.

After running the firmware update, perform a maintenance on the cartridges. To do that, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead.

If you still see the same problem and your printer is still under warranty, contact our technical support team to have the printhead replaced.

Scanner leaving black streaks

There are two possible fixes.

Download the latest firmware update by CLICKING HERE

The following is provided by courtesy of Lexmark:
Problem Vertical lines; Auto document feeder scan anomaly; ADF scanning problem; Scan issue; Scanner issue; Visible line; Streaks show on page; solid line down the page; Top to bottom line; Smudge runs down the page; Opaque line; Broken line; Bar all the way down the page Solution Overview

This article provides the self-diagnostic steps necessary to evaluate top-to-bottom streaks that appear when copying or scanning.

Important! This is seldom a scanner hardware failure.

The main reason for this anomaly is debris or marks on the scanner glass that is used for Auto document feeder (ADF) page scans.

Printed or Scanned Page Illustration


Who should consider this article?

Any user of an MFP or All-In-One printer experiencing the following symptoms:

  • -Vertical lines only when using the Autodocument Feeder (ADF).
  • -Observed with any type of scan job (e-mail, ftp, solutions, fax).
  • -However, normal expected output when the page is scanned from the scanner flatbed.

ADF scan behavior

Think of it this way:

  • -The page is pulled from the ADF.
  • -The moving page slides across an ADF-designated portion of glass.
  • -The image sensor, which is located under the glass, reads and interprets the moving page's contents.
  • -Contamination on this ADF glass is seen by the image sensor for the entire length of the page.
  • -The image processor interprets the image sensor's repeated capture of this contamination as a vertical solid line.
  • -Any ADF scan function now exhibits a vertical line.


Suggested Diagnosis and Fix

Step Action 1 Locate the portion of the glass designated for ADF scans.
HINT: The glass location differs by model. This area is often separate from the scanner flatbed. Please reference User's Guide for more information if you are having a difficult time locating this designated area.
2 Perform a visual inspection for any of the following recurring culprits:

  • -Clear adhesive tape
  • -Glue
  • -Ink pen
  • -Paper
  • -Marker
  • -White out
  • -Staples
  • -Environmental dust or dirt
HINT: Ink marks can be especially hard to see and almost translucent at first sight. However, the image sensor (CCD) registers them as a mark. 3 Use a clean, soft, moistened cloth to thoroughly clean and remove any marks or debris. 4 Inspect the underbelly or underside of the ADF for any marks or debris. 5 Perform another scan to see if cleaning the glass alleviated the issue. 6 Repeat the procedure if a vertical line still appears.
Remember! Printing and scanning from the scanner flatbed work fine.
7 This time, place an intentional mark on a blank sheet of paper and take note of its location. Now place that sheet of paper in the ADF and make a copy.
8 Evaluate the distance of the vertical line to the your mark. 9 Inspect that area of the glass for further debris or marks and clean as necessary.

Other Possibilities

If... Then... Vertical lines appear only when printing... Consider other printer-related topics such as toner cartridge, charge roll, photoconductor, transfer roll, or fuser. Contact Lexmark Technical Support. Vertical lines appear when you lay the page on the flatbed...

You were not nery clear on the issue, however I think you may have a "rogue" virus. They are pretty prevelent right now. Download & install it. You may have to start in the safe mode with networking. 1st run the quick scan, then the full scan.

Scanning the document

I'm confused? The listed product is a Fax/Modem, not an all-in-one. It doesn't have a scan function. To send a document via a fax, you will need to scan it with a scanner (separate hardware) and then fax it. In Windows 7, a program called Windows Fax and Scan is included. If the devices are installed with the correct drivers, you can do the two steps in one program. Open the program, click on New Fax. Select Insert > Pages from Scanner (only available if the scanner was on and connected when Fax and Scan was started). Scan the document; fill in the contact information for the receipient and send. The Contact information may take a few steps since it is a Windows Contact page.

I hope this helps.

HP USB Modem does not break dial tone

If the information connected to your post is all correct (56k V90 usb), and you are using one line for both the internet and the fax, you should hang up from the internet before you try to dial out the fax.

You have not indicated your PC model, so I don't know what operating system you are using. For XP and newer versions, you have to set up and configure the fax using the wizard or configuration software. If you have not done that yet, you need to.

In xp, go to start, Programs , Accessories , Communication , Fax , and then click Fax Console.

You said your computer is new. Win 7 and Vista are much the same:

1.Click the Start button , click All Programs, and then click Windows Fax and Scan.

2.At the bottom of the left pane, click Fax, and then click New Fax on the toolbar to launch the Fax Setup wizard.

3.Click Connect to a fax modem and follow the instructions.

You also need to make sure that your fax/modem is correctly listed in the control panel. In XP, start, control panel, printers and devices. If you do not have a fax printer listed, you need to "install a local fax printer."

The installation wizard should work in both OS without much trouble. If you do have difficulty, Microsoft and adobe both have "virtual printers" you can use. Look in Microsoft office or online.

Also check control panel of 7 to make sure that your modem and fax are listed correctly. Thanks for using Fixya.
