Why won't my printer preview photos to the computer?
I'm trying to edit photos on the Lexark Productivity program that came with the printer, I have done it before, but now it won't scan the photos from printer to computer. This seems to be since we started getting the internet. I've already checked to make sure the printer is recieving power and that the USB cable is properly connected to both the printer and the computer, already tried all of the troubleshooting tips without any luck...fairly computer illiterate still so I'm at a loss!! Can you help please?
Re: Why won't my printer preview photos to the computer?
This is not an easy problem to trouble shoot like this, there are a number of possible reasons for not being able to use the scanner. Assuming the machine is working and is turned on I'd try reinstalling it's driver and software, although this might be a harsh solution to a small problem it is likely to work because all the settings will be set back to deafault.

Depending on the software you are using to do the preview...( a word processor, photo software ..etc) the preview is just that...it simply lets you look at the document or picture to see that you have formated it correctly in the main program. You should not try to print from the preview...what you can do is exit the preview function and return to the main software. the go to the file menu and exicute the print command and or do the page setup for the picture or document.
turn the printer on, place the picture on the glass, on the printer under mode press the big silver button until the scan light comes on then press select, you should hear the picture scanning, then on the computer, go under my pictures and you should see that picture.
