    Same problem here . . . Straight out of the box printer is working perfectly, but when I push the Scan Mode button the screen says "Downloading Application List" for about 30 seconds and then "Cannot retrieve Application List" start flashing across the screen. Have the same problem with a Lexmark 5495!

    I just bought a Lexmark X5495 and got prompted for a "wiafbdrv.dll" file (so I googled and found a copy of that file), now, it gets up to the "plug your USB cable in prompt, and when I do and click to go on, the computer freezes.

I had the same problem but if you open the Lexmark All-In-One center (can be found in start --> all programs --> lexmark 5400 series --> all-in-one center) and select scan (it will work)

if you dont have the program installed find your installation disk and when u re-install it, it should come up again

I have the same problem. I cannot scan in WiFi to this laptop but can with the USB cable. Even with the USB cable it says that it is downloading the application list and the "cannot retrieve application list."
I have Paperport Pro 11 software for scanning. I am able to use the interface with the USB.
