You may have to turn the printer off AND disconnect power as well as the data cable. Check the printer in the device list to be sure no documents are waiting and it indicates ready. Reconnect everything and try printing again.

You must have OCR installed to OCR. It's OCR...optical character recognition. You can't edit an image. It must be transformed into text. That's what OCR program does.
Google for your printed/scanner and download the proper software and install it. Dell provides the software online for free, but will charge you if you order a CD.

Try downloading from lexmark here:Official Lexmark Drivers and Software

Or use a different OCR, put the worsd OCR freeware download, on google to get a choice of free OCR software.

Without CD you can't install OCR or Optical character recognition software because OCR function is not installed in scanner but in computer. Usually when you buy new scanner you get CD or DVD with drivers and some lite version of OCR and some other programs for graphic editing.

I suggest you use the driver from the Lexmark website. You may need to uninstall the existing Lexmark X1270 driver first before installing the new one (instructions on how to uninstall the Lexmark software available at http://bit.ly/8ZH59T). Then, check if your Vista and Windows 7 are running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by going to the Start menu > right click on Computer > Properties. Download the compatible driver for your operating system:
Thank you for choosing Lexmark.

Remove the cartridges from the printer, then close the covers. Unplug the printer from the power source. Plug it back in after 10-15 seconds. Check if "cover is open" message is still coming up on the display. If yes, the cover sensor may have gotten stuck when you opened the printer to change the cartridges. Try to exercise the lever to release the tension. If problem persists, I advise you to call Lexmark. If not, proceed on reloading the cartridges. Close the covers. Let it print the alignment page all the way through without cancelling it. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.
