Printer cannot find application list for Scanner


Good day!
The scan software might not be installed properly in the computer. Try to run the installation cd in your computer again. If you have already used the installation cd in the computer, running it again should give you three options - Install a printer, Update/Upgrade or Install additional softwares. Choose Install Additional Softwares. In
the next page, place a check mark in Abby FineReader OCR software. Continue and finish the installation. Also, check your
firewall and make sure to allow all Lexmark communications to go
through. Try scanning again. Hope this helps.

Message no lexmark X9575 fax printer installed


Hi. Try to use and install the software again using the installation cd. When it runs, it should pop up the window with 3 options: Install a printer, Update/Upgrade, or Install additional softwares. Choose install additional softwares. In the next window, place a check mark in Fax solutions. Then, continue and finish the installation. If you don't have the cd, software can be downloaded by going to this link to the Lexmark website. http://bit.ly/d9TDnb . Download the compatible driver for your computer. Run the installation. Hope this helps.

Printer wont turn on and dont know if it is because the the printer is not installation but how do i do that when i lost the cd installation


you printer should still come on when power is plugged in. and once you conect your printer to the computer it should automatically install the drivers for it. you can also go to hp.com to find the drivers and software.
