Lexmark x5650 cannot retrieve application list


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

Hello, I am attempting to scan an important document and the printer keeps saying "set the document on the platen glass" the document is there but it keeps saying the message


The best way to scan images to save on yourcomputer is to use the scanner software on the computer. Not the scan functionon the scanner.
You don't say what type of scanner software you have but usually scannersoftware works this way:
1) Place photo on scanner
2) Open scanner software
3) Using the software, Initiate scan
4) Name the Scanned item and save it to your desired location/folder
Note: some applications will automatically save to --My Documents--My Pictures
5) Repeat process for each pic to be scanned

Try these. 1 in applications find image capture, make sure printer is conected and on, launch image capture and see if it finds the scanner. 2 go to the HP website and see if there is software to download.

When trying to scan from the computer or printer to computer, I get an error that says "scanner cannot be initialized, scanner communication error"


A hardware issue is the most likely culprit. You can test that by trying to to a copy from the machine with the computer off. (most scanners have a "copier" function that lets you copy a paper directly to another paper) If you can copy a document or image there, then it's not the scanner, and a new cable might resolve the problem. If you can COPY from the copier, and you have a new cable, but the issue persists, then you would know it is a software issue rather than hardware. In that case, have a technician walk you through removal and reinstallation of the driver and scanning application, OR, try scanning from another photo application, such as MSOffice Photo Editor.

Lexmark X5470 scanner problem


i had the same problem but if you open the Lexmark All-In-One center (can be found in start --> all programs --> lexmark 5400 series --> all-in-one center) and select scan (it will work)

if you dont have the program installed find your installation disk and when u re-install it, it should come up again
