Question about Lexmark X8350 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Scanner The scanner won't scan. It will preview, but won't send the image to the computer. When the all-in-one center is open, and the scan button is pressed, it won't work, yet will print out a page just fine.

    Actually, I contacted Lexmark and got the problem fixed. Turns out, the firewall was blocking it for some reason, and all I had to do was configure it to allow the all-in-one center and the other programs. posting this up here in case others have the same problems. =]

Try scanning from the image software you are using, not from the front panel buttons. Go to the TWAIN options and make sure your scanner is selected, then go to Acquire and the scanner software will start. Scan from there without using the scanner front panel.

I am trying to scan a document and it is not working, I have a hp photosmart c4280 printer. How do I install a usb cord

Place the document or image into the scanner for scanning. A scanner with a paper feeder will only receive flat papers and photographs, but a flatbed scanner opens to accommodate books, fabrics and leaves along with flat papers. There is even a attachment for feeding photo slides into flatbed scanners.
  • Step 2 Start the scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif. If the scanner does not engage the software automatically, press the "start" or "scan" button, or click the scanner icon on the computer screen to initialize the software.
  • Step 3 Activate the scan. Click the "file" menu and select "acquire," "import," or another practical choice that applies.
  • Step 4 Preview the item to be scanned. Most scanners have a preview option. This will show the scan area inside dotted lines. The lines can be moved with the mouse to relocate, enlarge or crop the scanning area.
  • Step 5 Set the resolution for images by number of dots per inch (dpi). For computer screen viewing, 100 dpi should suffice. Use 200 to 300 dpi for items to be printed.
  • Step 6 Use the appropriate setting for scanning black and white text. If the scanner does not show a preset for text, use "line art" or "black and white" at 300 dpi. Then use the optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the image of the text into a file for word processi
