Did you install the CD that came with it? That CD has a program called Lexmark Imaging Studio. When you scan with the printer, it has to call the program up to request the scan, then it scans to the program screen (it takes a few seconds for this to happen). This is the only way I know that you can get the computer to scan. Hope this helps

Did you install the full-featured software or just the OS generic driver? If a full-featured software exists for your OS, uninstall the previous driver, unplug the USB cable and install the full software.

Next try a new USB cable and a different port. If you have a USB hub or print server in use, try a direct connection to the computer. (Scanners need bi-directional communication and fail even when the printer works.)

If you can't launch a scan from the all-in-one, try launching it from the computer. (Either the full-software or another scan program (Win7 and Vista let you scan into Paint. Win7 and some versions of Vista have Windows Fax and Scan for those all-in-ones that only get support from Windows generic drivers on those OS's).)

Some of the full-featured software drivers include a monitor that must be running to see if buttons are pressed on the scanner. Check that if this is the case for your all-in-one.

I hope this helps.

(I'm assuming that the printer itself works which means the USB ports aren't disabled for power-savings or security.)

I messed with the 5650 for a year trying to get it to scan and kept getting the "Downloading application List" problem. I fixed this by throwing it away and buying a Canon All-In-One. Problem solved! No more Lexmark junk for me. This is the third Lexmark that just quit working after a short time. They are POS.

Hello there
ok try this my help you.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

    I have a Lexmark x5650. I'm on a mac, upgraded my os from Tiger to Snow Leopard. Now I can't scan OCR text. Could scan to word document before, and get editable text. That is not an option now

    If you still have the Lexmark X5650 install disc that came with your printer, re-insert it to your computer hard drive and run the program. This will help repair the OCR scan software and possible corrupted files necessary for scanning documents.

    X5650 Unrecoverable scan error. Does not feed the paper.

    that sounds more like a mechanical issue. You might want to call Lexmark at 1-800-LEXMARK about the problem. Hope your printer is still within warranty. Hope this helps.
