Re: scanner

Contact the manufacturer as this is most likely a hardware problem.

Can Lexmark x2470 scan and print a double sided document?

after reading the manual,, yes it is possible - not that it tells you how to do it though so read on.
Until you become familiar with the process just use one sheet of paper at a time in the printer.
As you know, in the scanner the top right of your document goes to the right hand front corner of the scan bed (the clear window), place the page on the scanner and scan.
Pick up the printed sheet of paper and flip it so the left hand side edge is now in your right hand and the right hand edge is now in your left hand and you are now looking at the blank side of the paper.
Insert the page back into the sheetfeeder.
Flip the page to copy in the scanner so the rearmost edge of the paper is now to the front of the scan bed and the front edge of the paper is now towards the rear (you should now be looking at the page you scanned previously).
Scan the page.
you should have now scanned both sides of one sheet of paper to another sheet of paper.
as your printer does not have a sheet feeder for the scanner you have to do the process manually. hope this helps.

The Scanner bulb warming up cycle is stuck and it keeps making the set-up sound. how do you stop it?

This worked for me today 8/29/10

A much easier way to clean the mirror.
Thanks to:

Basically, you power off the printer and unscrew the screw which allows you to remove the small piece of glass to the left of the main scanning glass.

Using some needle-nosed pliers through the opening, grasp the drive belt and use it to move the scanning head across from the right hand side of the scanning area to the left, until it is right under the opening. At the bottom of the wide slot, there is a mirror, and it gets fogged up with something.

Shine a good light in there and use dry Q-tips to give the mirror a good clean. Then reassemble everything and turn the printer back on. After a little warm-up, you should get the Ready€™ prompt again, and your heart will be filled with joy.

The whole process should only take about 5 mins. There may be other things which cause a scanner error, but this fixed it for me and, it would appear, for many others.

When I send my job to the printer. The printer will print but only on 1/2 of the page. it looks like the printer think i want two sheets on one page


Is the whole page you want printed on half the page is just half the data printed? If the whole page is printed on half the paper then the problem is software. If the page only prints the left side or the right side blank on the other side then the problem is most likely the fuser assembly. Can you take a picture of the page and email it to us, we will email you back with what needs to be done next.

How Do Stop Scanner Bulb From Warming Up?

There are 3 possible causes to this problem.

First dirty scanner optics this causes scanner to unable to get to the home position. This step should be done first. You will need to remove the ADF assy, left, right covers, remove control panel, remove control panel base cover, remove 8 screws 4 on top and 4 under scanner assy ( One screw on each side of scannerie front, left, right, back) Then carefully remove the glass. You should now be able to see the scanner assy, you will need a small flat screwdriver to disengage the tabs holding the scanner cover in place. Clean all mirrors with DRY q-tip. Reassemble and test.

2nd After cleaning scanner optics still doesn't resolve problem next step is to replace scanner formatter. You will need to open left cover, and remove the 2 screws and remove the smaller left cover. The scanner formatter can now be seen.

If above steps do not resolve problem, replace the scanner assy.

White line down side of page when scanning

If this is happening only when you are scanning using the automatic document feeder, check for something blocking light above the scanner. If you open the scanner top, look along the left side of the scanner glass where the paper is scanned by the automatic document feeder. If you see anything on the glass there, clean it with a soft cloth dampened with clean water.

Scanning document leaves streak down right hand side

Even a single grain of dust or a single strand of hair on the scanning glass will cause the scan head to perceive ink/image where there is none. Deffinetly try cleaning the glass using a good window cleaner, and a cloth that is completely clean, or even a peice of newspaper. If the black line remains, I would suggest taking it into a service center to have the scan head itself cleaned.
