Question about Lexmark X73 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

The included X73 OCR has disappeared

A Lexmark X73 came bundled with a Dell 4300 that I bought in 2003. A couple of weeks ago, I tried to run the OCR on a scanned image (Which is an option with the Lexmark Scan and Copy Control Program) but it failed. That is, the machine scanned, but the OCR did not function and the scanned file was not saved. I downloaded a new driver from Lexmark, but it did not correct the problem.

    Dear Benimur -- The Dell came with the Lexmark X73 software already installed. There was no software CD. I phoned the Lexmark tech line but was informed that they no longer support the X73. And the 2003 Dell is so far beyond support or guarantee that I didn't even bother. Maybe I should try them, anyway?

    Dear Benimur --
    Does anyone in the world have an installation CD for the Lexmark X73 that they'll lend me?

    Dear Benimur --
    Yes, my Dell 4300 does have WinXP. Recall that I said that I downloaded a driver from Lexmark; that actually was the same CJXP73LE.EXE that you recommened.
    I went through the whole routine more than once,un-installing Lexmark X73, then expanding the CJXP73LE executable file and re-installing the device. I tried this more than once, but no OCR resulted in any case. (By the way, the file that I downloaded has dates associated with it of May 12 and June 10, 2003.)
    It still sounds like I need to borrow somebody's installation CD.

    Dear Benimur --
    No,I haven't yet tried the SimpleOCR program. I've been trying to get the Lexmark included OCR to work.

Hi,

May I initially suggest that you uninstall all the drivers and instances of the Lexmark X73. Unplug the USB connection. Reboot and pop in the original CD. Follow on-screen instructions especially when to lug in the USB. Pls do not use the downloaded update.

Thereafter try it again. If problem persist or if you are using Vista pls post back.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again Jonnie-Bob,

    with the indulgence of Beni S-P.....

    I understand. I am assuming that your 2003 Dell 4300 is running Windows XP. If that is the case, pls download the CJXP73LE.exe. It may be found here. To my knowledge it is an old version (1.017.2) released in Oct 24, 2001 which should be identical or nearly enough to what is inside the installation CD. Once downloaded, double-click the file to extract the driver and begin installation. Then, follow the on-screen instructions. This download only includes the printer and scanner software.

    Should the OCR program be not included or if for some reason the problem persists, pls try another OCR program. You can do a Google for it or you can try here.

    Would appreciate if you can post any development(s) or even the lack of it.

    Cheers.

Lexmark does not include it as being compatible with Windows 7:

You can try:

If the manufacturers website does not have Windows 7 drivers, try using Windows Update to install printer drivers:

The lexmark x2650 doesn't have the OCR software in it. I try to scan a document and edit it but can't because no OCR software included


To scan documents for editing and saving as PDF file, you will need to install the Lexmark OCR scan software on your computer. The Lexmark scan software (no downloadable version) is only available on the installation disc that came with your printer. If you lost the disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.


To install the OCR scan software from the printer installation CD:

  1. Insert CD into the CD-ROM drive. If the installation screen open, click Cancel.
  2. Double-click on My Computer / Computer.
  3. Right-click on Lexmark XXXX CD and select Open.
  4. Double-click on OCR.
  5. Double-click on Setup.exe to install the OCR software. Your operating system will then determine the language in which it is installed.

X4690 doesn't have Mac Productivity bundle???


The updated driver found in the Lexmark website should include the Productivity Studio application, however, the OCR scan software can be installed using the installation cd that came with the printer. Here's the link to the Lexmark website where you can download the Lexmark X4690 updated driver, http://bit.ly/aF110u. Download and install the software. Hope this helps. If you're going to encounter an issue or you'll need more assistance, just leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

I need to load the OCR on my lexmark 4300..how do i get it?


The OCR does not go on the lexmark, it is a program that processes the results of a scan. Often, users are not aware that OCR process has run. Essentially, can you read the document reasonable, probably had OCR run on it already.

I bought a new computer with Windows Vista. I have a Lexmark x73 printer that was used with my old computer with Windows XP. I bought a USB port and my printer still doesn't work. I need help with this.


Not finding a Vista driver to be available from Lexmark x73. They only show the XP driver. You can get this driver free here: http://download.cnet.com/Lexmark-X73/3000-2116_4-22576.html?tag=mncol

One, try installing printer without the XP driver. Lexmark may have provided a quailifying driver with Vista hardware setup wizard. If it does not work or wizard cannot locate a driver, try the XP driver.

Beyond this, you may have to talk to tech support at Lexmark or repost here for another expert.

I don't have the CD to my Lexmark P4350 and don't


OCR programs are usually bundled with the driver disk and typically cost money. If the disk is lost, than chances are youll have to purchase an OCR program. One thing that you can try is to contact lexmark customer service and ask to send you a new copy of the disk. Be prepared to fax proof of purchase and pay shipping charges.

I am trying to install a Lexmark 4300 on a Dell computer with Vista on it


This was posted earlier by an anonymous Fixya guest:

I HAVE FOUND A SOLUTION TO NOT BEING ABLE TO SCAN WITH ALL IN ONE CENTRE with VISTA!!!!!!!!!!!

hi guys, i have had the same problem, i have a p4350 all in one printer and when i updated to Vista i couldnt get my install cd to work...i downloaded the install file from lexmark website...cjr4300eng.exe and all worked except OCR and FAX...i emialed lexmark and they couldnt help.....but i tricked my computer and now everything works just fine.....this what you have to do......
Step 1 - uninstall all previous lexmark software
Step 2 - download the cjr4300eng.exe file from
http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:479:0:0&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista&target=
Step 3 - extract the file to c:\drivers\printer\4300 but do install the software, just cancel
Step 4 - once you've extracted, copy the OCR and FAX folders from the original INSTALL CD to the same directory c:\drivers\printer\4300 along with all files from the ROOT directory (autorun.inf, cdicon.ico, hidclass.sys etc) on the CD EXCEPT "setup.exe"
Step 5 - open setup.exe and wait for install, it should notify you twice of installation so be patient.....and WOLA you're done
Hope this helps guys....
