Re: scanning to my computer

You need to install the scanning software which comes with that printer.
I assume you are using windows OS. Click on start button, all programs, accessories, and then scanners and camera, make sure your printer is on and connected to the computer, see if it sees your printer this way. Otherwise do as I said before install the scanning software which came with the printer.
let me know the name type of the printer so that I can suggest the software to scan with.
Hope that helped!

Not scanning a photo to computer

Usually, if a printer isn't scanning, it means that you have a bad driver for it. Download a new driver for it from the manufacturer's website. Go to my computer, pick your scanner, and then reinstall the drivers from there (right click for a list of options). Then, reset your computer and it should work. If not, you may need additional assistance from the manufacturer. Hope it helps.

I am trying to scan a doc, but don't know how to set up the scanner. I am running MS office 2007 on XP- OS

Make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software (used for scanning documents for editing) is installed on your computer. The scan software is available only on the installation disc that came with your printer. No downloadable driver is available in the Lexmark website. Just insert the install disc into your hard drive to install the additional software on your computer.

Wondering what I need to print wirelessly from laptop with this printer

If you printer hasn't a built-in wireless connection and if you haven't a wireless router then -
You need a wireless router plus print server. Connect this print server to the wireless router with a LAN cable. Then the printer is then connected to the print server's printer port.
The laptop's wireless card is then configured with the router's wireless settings.
The laptop is then installed with the printer driver and the printer port needs to be changed/configured with the print server's IP address.
If the printer is connected to a desktop computer on your home LAN and it is also connected to your wireless router. Then you can set this printer as A Shared Printer on your desktop computer, but this desktop computer and the printer has to be powered up for the laptop to print to the printer.
For instruction on setting up a shares network printer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Which button do i press to scan

Hello. Here's the button you need to press on the printer control panel to scan to computer(see image below).

For additional information on how to scan, here's the User's Guide (Lexmark X2500, X2550, X2570, X2580). Also, make sure that the scan software is already installed in the computer by using the installation cd. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Lost disc need to sset up on new computer

HP has the software/drivers for several OSes here:
Just click on the appropriate driver. For Win 7 and Vista, you will use the drivers in the OS. This will limit some of the functions (a few of the buttons on the printer will not start the desired operation on the computer). You will need to initiate these from the computer. (Scanning has to be started on the computer. Read the above for additional details. In Win7 both Paint and Windows Fax and Scan will acquire scans.)

I hope this helps.
