    I have a lexmark x-73 3-in-1. Now the scanner and copy parts will not work. When I try to either copy a document or scan a document, after it reads the document it cannot copy or scan to the program. The printer makes a klack, klack, klacking noise and feeds out a blank sheet of paper or a blank screen in the case of a scan to program. It completes the process, but nothing happens. The klacking noise continues even after I turn the power button off, and does not stop until I disconnect the printer from the power source. Does anyone know what is happening here?

    I have disconnected and restarted several times. Same problem.

    same thing, klackity klack, the software follows through but no image is picked up! It used to work beautifully but now it is always the clackity clack and I assume something is stuck inside, a cable or something but how does one open to the inside of the scan bed itself?

I asked Lexmark support abd received the answere. this solved the issue immediately.
"Please note that there is a red lever on the back of the printer unit that locks the scanner. Make sure that this lever is located in the "down" position when attempting to power up the scanner."

Epson perfection 2400 photo scanner stuck with flashing red light


You may have accidently pushed the LOCK button - this button is used to LOCK the carriage into place when moving the scanner to another location or shipping it.

Check for a button and the picture of a LOCK, it is usually at the back of the scanner, you can push it left or right, and you have an open lock and a closed lock picture under it. Make sure you didn't accidently push it to the LOCK position when holding the scanner - that loud sound means your carriage is locked and cannot move - once you set the button to UNLOCK this should solve your problem.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.

Please ensure that the scanner is unlocked. The scanner lock is situated under the scanner bed towards the left. To unlock the scanner, please lift the scanner bed and push the red switch towards the back of the machine. Please try scanning again and let us know the results.

I have a lexmark x73 i'been instaling so manytimes on order to make the scaner to work but nothing I would apreciatte if you can give me some tips or help thanks


Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doesn't work fully with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Lexmark X73) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

Lexmark x73 Printer


push the paper a little bit to help the printer to pull it correctly if not working then there is a problem with the rollers and that would be a hardware issue and needs to be fixed at the shop.

Scanner locked - unlock scanner


To unlock a scanner open it where you would put cartridges in and look for a red or green colored tab hanging down. There should be a little picture of a padlock. You can switch it from lock to unlock. It's kept locked to protect the scanner during shipping.

Hope this is helpful...

Lexmark X83 "Unlock Scanner" error


I had the same problem and the solution is this: There is a red lever switch by the power chord on the scanner/printer. Above this red lever switch is the drawing of a lock in the "locked" position and at the bottom this red lever switch is the drawing of a lock in the "opened (unlock)" position. The lever on the red switch should point to the "opened" lock symbol (unlock). It the switch lever is pointing to the "locked" position of the lock symbol, flip it to the "opened" position and recycle power on the scanner by removing the power chord for a 30 seconds. If the lever is pointing to the "unlock" lock symbol, flip it to the "locked" position and then back to the "unlocked" position and recycle power. Good luck!
