Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Scan to Microsoft Works document is SMALL... tried settings... nothing works

All the other features with my Lexmark X5070 works superbly, however, when I use the scanning feature to Microsoft Works (a document) the document is opened in a very small font, the margins are off, and it seems to set everything up into columns. Actually, even after having the document open and working with the margins IN the Works document itself it does not help... the formatted columns do not change it only distorts the document.

I've tried using the settings of the scanner itself. I've also tried fixing the document using formatting features of Microsoft Works.

Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

I've always been told with text recognition, etc. that the OCR is only as good as the spell checker and formatting capabilities of the application you import to. Works is unfortunately only a step up from using Wordpad and I believe this is probably an issue with MS Works not your printing software. Make sure you are in "Print View", but bottom line... you may need to scan to scan some documents to another application first and import the file after.

Can not get the OCR to work


Try to reinstall the OCR scan software by inserting the Lexmark installation disc that came with your printer into the computer hard drive. If you have a firewall enabled, make sure to allow all Lexmark scan and print processes in the program rules or permission.
If you lost the disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center to request one for free.

I cannot get my all in one Lexmark x5070 to download application list.


It could be a slight communication problem. Try to unplug the printer from your computer. Reboot your computer. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to reset. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Try to scan again.
You can also try to update your printer software. The Lexmark X5070 driver can downloaded and installed by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/mqHzMk. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.

Were you able to scan to your Windows 7 before? If yes, it could be just a slight communication problem. Disconnect your printer from your computer. Reboot your computer. Unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect your printer to the computer. Doing this usually fixes minor communication issues. Try to scan again.

Lexmark X7350 Scan feature


well you are able to scan multiple documents.. but the file size is more.. the way lexmark software writes the pdf file.. the file will be huge for PDF... but not sure if this is a case with any other all in one manufacturer like HP also... but i would assume it would be the same.. so scan the file to MS WORD or any other application that supports multiple pages... so u have it as one file... but if u want only pdf files, then u have to do a little work around like writing the MS WORD Document to pdf format. If the PDF Writer is not installed with your copy of MSWORD then try any free pdf writer software available on the internet.
