Lexmark 1270 all-in-one
A clicking noise from the scanner is probably caused by the driver for the scanner.
Download the latest driver from www.lexmark.com.
Once the driver is installed, power the printer off and back on again.
The original driver CD for the X1200 printers had part number 17M4160, and some early X1200s were shipped with this driver CD. When the X1200 was manufactured with a new scanbar, the updated driver CD became part number (PN) 17M4360. The updated CD should have been included in the box of new products being shipped. If the X1200 is making a "clicking noise" when you try to scan and the CD PN 17M4160 was installed, you need to download and install the web driver which supports ALL the X1200 printers. NOTE: The X1200 driver CD PN 17M4360 works with ALL X1200s also.
