Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My Lexmark 5400 series has just recently stopped working. It says "cannot retrieve application list". The printer and fax work just fine. I just installed the new Norton Internet security. I think that this might have affected it. Any solutions?
Microsoft Paint ----> 'File' -----> 'From scanner or camera' (while the Lexmark is in scan mode). Just tried it and it really works.

I have a Lexmark X5495 – This worked GREAT for me so Good luck.
1) Power on the Lexmark.
2) Unplug the device from the back of the Printer
3) Wait exactly 30 seconds and then plug it back in.
4) (Assuming you have windows xp) Go to start/All programs/ Lexmark XXX
5) Open the Lexmark Productivity Studio (depending on your model of Lexmark)
6) Click on Scan – The device should be working now.
7) You can also use the scan button now.

I found that updating the drivers, off Lexmark's website, took care of the problem --
Good luck --

This is the worst product I have ever purchased. DO NOT BUY LEXMARK.

I had this problem. As long as you can print to the scanner, all you need to do is ensure that the Lexmark Imaging Studio is running on the machine before trying to scan.
There will be a little rainbow coloured flower icon in the System Tray if it is running. If it is not then Start > All Programs > Lexmark (Printer number) > Lexmark Imaging Studio to start it.

Must run Imaging Studio, or another connection software on the background. Otherwise, Lexmark "cannot retrieve application list".

I encountered this problem with my Mac and found a workaround by killing and restarting two of the driver programs. This may not work for everyone, and is probably no use to people seeing this problem on a Windows/Linux box (sorry).
killall "3500-4500 Series Button Monitor"
open "Library/Application Support/Lexmark/LexmarkNetworkServices.app/"
open "/Library/Application Support/Lexmark/3500-4500 Series Scanner.bundle/Contents/SharedSupport/3500-4500 Series Button Monitor.app/"

I went into the lexmark series center, "change network scan settings..." and changed the name of my computer to one word with no spaces and it worked

I have had this problem repeatedly with an S305 on my OSX Mac. ... It prints just fine, but can't download the application list to scan.
Strangely enough, I've found that if I *unplug* the S305 (don't just power it down), wait about 10 seconds, and plug it back in, the machine usually returns to full functionality. Doesn't work the first time, try it again.
This is not to say that Lexmark's products which suffer this problem are well-designed or aren't pains in the posterior.

What you need to do is check to see if your scanner is using the same wireless network as your computer. Push the "scan button," now select your network, finally choose computer if you have more than one using the machine. If your not on the same wireless network, open your lexmark productivity studio to configure scanner. You may be asked to connect your computer to your scanner using a usb connection so have it on hand. Run the diagnostics and you should be set.

It's not a "fix" per se, but try scanning from the printivity center. I was able to do this when scanning to network was unable to retrieve the application list.

The "Paint" option below DID work, but, better still, I went to the Lexmark site and downloaded the latest full install for my OS, Win 7, 64 bit, then went through what seemed to be the exact same installation procedure as with the CD that came with the printer/scanner/copier, the S301 series, including not hooking up the USB cable until so instructed, and, Voila'! It now seems to work as intended. I guess that's what you get when you buy a $40 Lexmark item.

delete the norton internet security as its blocking the scanner files of your printer software .or try reloading the printer drivers again but if reloading the printer drivers does not helps then removing the norton software is compulsary as the files of printer are getting blocked so scanner is not working.
