Make sure there are no print jobs stuck in the queue. If you're using Windows, go to the Control Panel > Printers > double-click on the Lexmark print object. Delete all print jobs pending. If you can't clear all print jobs, follow the steps below:

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET STOP SPOOLER" (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET START SPOOLER" (this will restart the print spooler service)


Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.


Reboot your computer. Then, try to scan again.

Trying to scan a picture into my computer; printer screen says "requesting scan" for about 2 minutes, then it says "scan request failed"


If you simply plug the new All-In-One into the USB port on the PC, a "new" plug-and-play event will install a new copy of the printer driver. To confirm that this is the cause of your issue, look for two copies of the printer in the Printers folder.
What to do
To resolve this issue, restart the PC. Scanning should now work as expected.

I have a Lexmark E352dn printer. The screen showed that the Photoconductor needed replacing which I have done. However the screen still shows " 84 Replace Photoconductor " I have removed and...


the problem is that you need to reset the counter of the photoconductor unit. From the official site of lexmark, i find this solution.
Step Action 1 Enter the printer's Configuration menu:
  1. Power off the printer.
  2. On the printer's operator panel, press and hold the select button (pattlnk_11202006_2142-select_button.jpg) and the back button (pattlnk_4122007_1833-back%20button%20e350_e352_e450.gif).
  3. Power the printer back on while keeping both these buttons held down.
  4. When you see the messages Performing Self Test or Busy on the printer screen, you can release both buttons.
  5. If the printer has successfully entered configuration mode, you will see a new menu with the heading CONFIG MENU at the top of the screen.
2 Press the right arrow button (pattlnk_4122007_1837-right_arrow.jpg) until you see Reset PC Cnt. Press pattlnk_11202006_2142-select_button.jpg once. You will see Reset. Press pattlnk_11202006_2142-select_button.jpg again.
The printer will display a Resetting PC Count Value message and go back to the previous screen.
3 Press pattlnk_4122007_1833-back%20button%20e350_e352_e450.gif once. 4 Press pattlnk_4122007_191-left_arrow.jpg or pattlnk_4122007_1837-right_arrow.jpg on the operator panel until you see Exit Config Menu. Press pattlnk_11202006_2142-select_button.jpg once. Selecting this will cause the printer to reboot.

If the counter has been reset correctly, the printer should return to a Ready prompt.
5 If this does not clear the PC Life Warning or Replace Photoconductor message, power off the printer and attempt this entire procedure again. If the error remains after two attempts, confirm that:
  • The correct photoconductor unit is installed. The part number on the photoconductor unit should be E250X22G. If it is not, install the correct photoconductor unit into the printer.
  • The photoconductor unit has not been refurbished by a third party or is not damaged in any way. If the photoconductor unit was refurbished by a third party or appears to be damaged, try replacing it again before seeking service on the printer.
If the error persists, the printer may require service to correct the issue. Contact Lexmark Technical Support for more information.

Can't scan on the HP OfficejetJ4580


Uninstall everything that has to do with your old HP printer, drivers, photo processing, etc. Reinstall software with J4580 printer. That should open HP Digital Imaging Monitor where you can set scanning options. Plug printer into the back opf your computer. Plug power supply directly into the wall socket.

Cant scan from hp 3110 photosmart printer


You are having hardware communication problems caused, very likely, by driver installation troubles. Go into CONTROL PANEL and then SYSTEM and then DEVICES and look for the scanner there under IMAGING DEVICES and check to see if it has an exclamation mark next to it, or if any other device has this mark, meaning that drivers are not installed for it. If there is no scanner but you have a warning icon labeled UNKNOWN DEVICE, this is the problem. If you find any non-functioning hardware devices, this is probably it.

Try this as a fix. Unplug the cable to the printer/scanner.

Go online to HP and download the latest drivers and utilities for the scanner/printer and save them to your desktop.

In CONTROL PANEL, open ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS. Scan down and remove (uninstall) anything related to the HP printer or scanner, everything. Then reboot. Then install the drivers and utilities on your desktop you saved previously, plugging in the unit when prompted to do so. If you are never prompted, plug it in at the very end when everything is installed. If this routine fails, try rebooting the system without the HP scanner plugged in, wait for a complete start-up, and then plug the scanner into a different USB port and follow the directions on screen taking note of any failure messages. PS: the scanner/printer needs to be powered on through all of this, of course. :>)

Good luck
