Hi Janet,

As I understand you mention about the scanner. (It scans in blue)

Please check the scan mode in the setup while scanning. Try setting it different dpi mode.

Did you install any new driver or update your operating system? If so you shoul update your printer/scanner driver to be compatible to your operating system. What is your operating system?

You can try to download its latest drivers from this link.

My car wont go past 35 sometimes and bumps when it gets there

Only thing I can is do you have a check engine light. If you do what is the code. Many auto parts stores will read your code for free.
What you said picks up slowly and tops out at 35 mph. My Chrysler 200 took 2 block to get to 2000 rpm 30 mph. That was all it would do. I had a code and changed the throttle body sending unit. The throttle body and sending unit are 1 piece unit on my car. some cars you can change just the sending unit. It improved 75 percent and when we changed gas station 3 weeks later the problem went away. With the limited info you gave that is all I got. Hope it helps.

My grandkids have a Playstation 2 slimline console. Suddenly it quit playing games and on sytem configuration it says " Disc could not be read ".I changed the 2 memory cards around , and even unloaded both...

i Had the same problem with reading blue disks as well as the system will no longer read DVD's or DVD based games. Cleaned the heads with a DVD/CD cleaner and it worked for a couple of months and stopped again this past weekend. Found several threads on other sites indicating that if you contact Sony customer support and verify that: (1) you ran thru diagnostic mode (Page 9 in manual), you CD/DVD's work in another machine and aren't damaged, they'll fix it for free.

Contacted Sony yesterday, shipped the system to them in PA, and they are "waiving" the repair charges. There explaination is that since they aren't sure what's causing the problem with my system, they won't charge me for the repair. Shipping charges where $18.00 for UPS ground. It will probably take approx. 3 - 4 weeks to get the system back, but that's a huge savings over buying a new one or trading it in at EB Games for a new / refurbished one. They also will reinstate the 90 day warranty as well.

thank you,

If you have purchased the cartridges directly from dell , it will be covered under warranty for 2 years for hardware errors and you can call dell on 1800 624 9896 and get the cartridge replaced , even after the replacement of the cartridges if you have the similar issue then its an issue with the printer and needs to be replaced.

My fax machine

We are having the same problem. I can hear it dial, but when the receiver fax picks up, there is no signal from the Lexmark to let the receiver know that we are sending. All we need is one stupid "BEEP"! So much for plug-and-play.

Fax confirmations

i have read the manual end to end and I don't think you can.
Only thing I see is this.

Customizing your settings using the Lexmark Fax Solutions You can adjust the fax settings in the Lexmark Fax Solutions. These settings apply to the faxes you send or receive.
  1. Click Start onestep.gif Programs onestep.gif Lexmark 7100 Series onestep.gif Lexmark Fax Solutions.
  2. Click Adjust speed dial list and other fax settings. hfaxsetutil.jpg
  3. Click each tab and change the settings as desired.
  4. Press Save Settings after you finish your updates. Nothing is saved until you press this button.
  5. Click Close.
The following table contains the Setup and Settings tabs for the Lexmark Fax Solutions.
On this tab
You can
  • Enter your company name and fax number.
  • Enter your name, company name, phone number and address as you want them to appear your cover page.
  • Select a cover page for your fax.
  • Choose to use error correction.
  • Choose to use fax header.
  • Select a maximum send speed and a print quality for outgoing faxes.
  • Choose whether to scan the entire document before dialing the number.
  • Select when to print a fax usage report.
  • Select when to print a fax activity report
Select when to print an activity report is the only close item I can find. Nothing whatsoever about a confirmation report.
