Instead of scanning directly through scanner, you should go first to the application like word/pdf writer or pagemaker etc and then import it from within the application using file<import (option can vary application to application).

How do set up my lexmark pro901 to scan to my pc so that I can email the scans


Make sure the Lexmark Pinnacle Pro901 printer driver is installed on your computer. If you have the install disc that came with your printer, just insert it to your computer hard driver and follow the instructions on your computer screen. You can also the download the printer driver from the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/d3ftso. Select your operating system > download > execute the file. Again, just follow the instructions on your computer screen.
Note: The install disc contains the Lexmark OCR scan software necessary for scanning documents for editing and saving them as PDF files. The downloaded driver does not contain the OCR software.
To scan to your computer using the printer operator panel:

1. From the home screen, navigate to Scan to Computer: Scan > Scan to Computer

2. Touch USB-Connected Computer or the name of a network computer. The local or network computer is the destination that will receive the scan. Wait until the printer has finished downloading a list of the scan applications available on the selected computer.

3. Select an application (in your case your email), and then touch Accept.

4. Select the color, resolution quality and the original image size. If necessary, touch Accept each time you make a selection.

5. Press the start button to start scanning. The scan is complete when the application you selected in step 4 opens on the destination computer, and the scan appears within the application as a new file.

To scan to your computer using the printer software (Lexmark Printer Home):

For Windows:


1. Click Start.

2. Click All Programs or Programs, and then select the printer program folder from the list.

3. Select Printer Home.

4. Choose your printer from the printer drop-down list.

5. Click Email, and then select Photo, Document or PDF.

Note: You can select Document only if an OCR application is stored on your computer. Scanning starts and the scan progress dialog appears.

6. When the scan is finished, a new e-mail message is created with the scanned document automatically attached.

7. Compose your e-mail message. Note: If your e-mail program does not open automatically, then you can scan the document to the computer and then send it through e-mail as an attachment.


For Mac:


1. From the Finder desktop, double-click the printer program folder.

2. Double-click the printer Center to open the All-In-One Center.

3. From the "What is being scanned?" menu on the main screen, select a document type.

4. From the "How will the scanned image be used?" menu, choose To be viewed on monitor/web page.

5. From the "Send scanned image to" menu, choose an application.

6. Click Scan.

7. Retrieve the scanned image from the application, and then send it through e-mail as an attachment.



I hope this information has been helpful.

Once a doc is scanned on a 8300 series all in one, how do I get the scanned image from the printer to a word doc? Looked


You can actually scan directly to an application(ex. MS Word application). Also, make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your computer (the software is available on the install disc that came with your printer).
1. Load an original document into the ADF or on the scanner glass. 2. Press Scan Mode. 3. Press ? or ? repeatedly until the MS Word application is highlighted. 4. Press check button. 5. Press Start Color or Start Black to start scanning.

How do you scan to email ? Please answer in laymans terms. Thank you. Lexmark 7675.


I will help you with this! Laymans terms are my specialty!

Turn on the PC & the printer

Make sure you have the printers software already installed before we go through how to scan to email. If you do not have the software installed, you can download it from Lexmarks website. After it is installed, follow these instructions:

Directions below are for a full page document only **

With the PC and the printer on and ready to go, insert a document face up in the automatic feeder

Find the button that has the picture of the scanner on it and press it. (Looks like a scanner with the lid open)

You will see the words "Scan to" appear on the display

The printer is asking you where you want it to scan the image to. You can scan to a computer, a flash drive, or memory drive.

Being you are going to scan your image to your computer to use in email, press the "ok" button.

Wait for the printer to bring up a list of applications that are compatible to send your image to.

Choose an application that you are familiar with by using the right and left arrow keys and then hit "ok". After you choose your application like Microsoft Photo ect., it will ask you what quality and size you wish to use. If your unsure, use the default choices that come up on the display by hitting the "ok" button after each one.

Then find the button with the green dot on it and press it.

This will transfer the image to your computer and you will see it on your screen.

Save it to your computer under a name you will remember. You can do this two ways. just hit the "X" to close the screen on the picutre and the computer should ask you if you want to save it and just choose yes. Or go to file at the top left side of the screen and scroll down to save as and choose a place and name then hit ok.

Open your email. Compose the email to the person you wish to send the scanned image to. Under the part where you enter the address and your subject there should be a picture of a paper clip. click on it and locate the name of the image file. click on the name of the file and then choose "ok" at the bottom. This should bring your image into your email and you will see the file name in the center area.

Write your email and hit send and your all done.

If you get stuck, here is a link to your manual for your printer that explains the instructions on how to scan to your computer.

I can't open scanned images


For you to be able to open a scanned image, you must have a compatible application with which the document was scanned with. May be you do not have a compatible software to open the scanned document. If you are not the orignal owner of the scanned document, ask for the format with which the document is scanned.

Hi there,

Scanning images,
About Scanning images
You can scan images from the machine to a computer without printing them and save them in popular formats. Scanned data saved on your computer can be processed using image processing software. Furthermore, you can use the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software to convert scanned paper documents to text data.

* Before scanning
Before scanning images, confirm the following :
- Are the necessary software (MP Drivers and MP Navigator) installed ?
If the software is not installed, install it.
- Does the document to be scanned meet the requirements for an original to be set on the Platen Glass ?
- Is the machine connected to a computer correclty.
Confirm that the connection between the machine and the computer is physically secure.

Scanning Methods.

A) Scanning Using the MP Navigator
MP Navigator enables you to scan in documents loaded on the Platen Glass and view images saved on your computer or on a memory card. Scanned documents can be previewed and easily printed and edited according to your needs.
You can use the supplied application softwares to edit or print the document you have scanned.

Windows : Double-click the [MP Navigator 2.0] icon on your desktop to launch MP Navigator.

* ScanSoft OmniPage SE ( Converting scanned document to text)
- This application software may not be supplied with teis machine in some country.

Note : If you did a [Custom Install] and only installed the MP Driver and MP Navigator, these application software were not installed and thus cannot be launched. To launch any of the above application softwares from MP Navigator, do a [Custom Install] once again to install them.
For detailed operations of the MP Navigator, refer to the Scan Guide.


B) Scanning Using the Operation Panel of the Machine
You can scan documents to your computer by using the Operation Panel.

*When using Mac OS X
For the machine to start scanning when [Color] or [Black] is pressed, you need to set MP Navigator as the starting application software in Image Capture under [Applications] of Mac OS X.

1) Press [ON/OFF] to turn on the machine.
2) Load the documents on the Platen Glass.
3) Select the scan option.
a) Press [Scan].
The scan operation selection screen is displayed.
b) Use Up or Down arrows to select the scan operation, then press [OK].
Scan standby screen is displayed.
Save to PC : The document is scanned and saved.

4) Press [Color] or [Black].
The document is scanned. The settings configured from MP Navigator apply when scanning.
Important : If with some types of original the position and size of the image is not scanned in correctly, please refer to the "Selecting the Behaviour of the Operation Panel with Mp Navigator " in the Scan Guide (on-screen manual). and change the MP Navigator [Document Type] and [Document Size]] to match those of the original being scanned.
Note : The operation to be performed after scanning the document depends on the scan operation setting you have selected in step 3. For details on how to modify the operation settings, refer tp the Scan Guide on-screen menual.

C) Scanning from an Application Software
You can scan an image from TWAIN-or- WIA (Windows XP only) complaint application software and handle the scanned image in the application software. For detailed operations, refer to the Scan Guide (on-screen manual).
