Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Preparing for Scanning Application box

I just installed my printer (w/software cd) and I keep getting the message; "Preparing Lexmark All-In-One Center for first use. Preparing for scanning application. Please wait." Then it searches and does nothing. What's wrong and how do I fix it? This software and printer worked fine on my other computer. It simply opens the box stating what I wrote above then does nothing.

Hello. Uninstall the software properly by going to Start Menu > All Programs > Lexmark Series folder > Tools > Uninstall. Restart pc. Probably, the software got corrupted that's why you are having problem with scanning. Reinstall the software by using the cd only this time. The scan software can only be installed using the installation cd that came with the printer.

Printer cannot find application list for Scanner


Good day!
The scan software might not be installed properly in the computer. Try to run the installation cd in your computer again. If you have already used the installation cd in the computer, running it again should give you three options - Install a printer, Update/Upgrade or Install additional softwares. Choose Install Additional Softwares. In
the next page, place a check mark in Abby FineReader OCR software. Continue and finish the installation. Also, check your
firewall and make sure to allow all Lexmark communications to go
through. Try scanning again. Hope this helps.

I think I have it.

Go to Lexmark Support.

In the "Search by Model" box enter x5250. When the model pops up, click it.

In the "Search the KnowledgeBase" box enter "searching for scanning applications". Click "Search".

You will get 2 choices. Click the bottom one, "How to Add a Scanning Application to the All-In-One Center".

Follow the instructions given.

Comment back.

Lexmark printer will not install. Error light keeps flashing,although printer has previously worked with the same computer.


how many lights ae there and if more than 1 which one??
It might be having a catridge error or a paper jam.

If it cnt install using the cd application software, just install its drivers only and see if it will accept.

Plug the printer to the PC and also insert the software cd. If the cd auto runs, cauncil it and look for the new hardware message and install the printer via that route, if not sure how, get back to me.

thnx
