Question about Lexmark X4500 MFP Flatbed Scanner

4 Answers

Setting up I bought the x4500mfp from ebay. I just got the power supply today. I have connected the ethernet to the scanner and my printer. When I turned the power on, the screen remains blank. What do I need to do? DO I need drivers for the unit? I have looked at the manual online but it does not say, I want to be able to use all of its features: email scanned copies to my computer, fax and print. Please help me.

Did you try to adjust the contrast button on the front left side of the unit? Also, did you here the power supplies fan come on when you plugged just it into the wall? And did the scanners internal fans come on when you switched the power switch "on" on the back of the unit. The other common problem I've seen is the cable from the operator panel to the MFD (the metal case on the bottom of the unit that houses the motherboard, hard drive, memory, etc.

    Once you get this unit wokring I highly reccomend you go to http://support.lexmark.com/printerfirmwa... and enter "r109" to dowload the latest firmware. Then go back to that same page and enter "907306" to download the latest software for the unit. Both downloads include directions on how to update. The second download is big and takes a while to update the unit - about 15~20 minutes. If you need any help email me at jeremy (dot) houle (at) xtreemkreations (dot) com These updates fix issues like ADF lamp warm up timing (one of the biggest issues I've seen) and update the new "daylight saving time".

Interested to know if you got it running. I've also got a X4500 - from cold it takes quite a few minutes to initialise and warm up. I had a problem with a ADF lamp error but i found by locking and unlocking the scanner lock and restarting it a few times it finally got going and worked OK once warm and left running.

Very useful post above from harly4d!

Cheers Ross

Printer keeps turning off


I think wear of your printer power supply may be loose/ power supply may gone. To solve the problem jast cheek power unit's wear. If result is No. Go to your printer's manufacture servicing center.
Thank you

My scanner bc350a will not turn on was working is there a fuse somewhere inside of the unit


There's a fuse in line with the DC (vehicle) cord, but none for AC power operation. Check the power supply with a voltmeter to be sure it's outputting power to the scanner (As a alternate, check the unit on vehicle power). If there's no output you can purchase a replacement power supply from Uniden on line of from other sources - such as eBay. If the power supply is outputting power, but the scanner is still not working, your problem could be the power connection at the scanner (internal or external), the power switch, or a myriad of other problems.

Our scanner says check supplies and will not scan. What does this mean?


Make sure you have a network connection and can ping the unit. Had one today that only shown Check Supplies and Administration. Found loose patch cable and then Email option appeared.

Printer worked yesterday and today it has no


It's a bad power supply. go to http://www.ebay.com and search for HP PSC 750 and there are numerous of new power supplies for the printer. Or, the wiring is dead inside the printer. Go to http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01321436&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=57769&lang=en

It's either the PSU or a bad USB cable.

Scanner


Try scanning from the Kodak AiO Home Center software. If that fails, you should get better feedback. Unfortunately, I have run into this when my ink is low. While it should not matter, is does. Check to see if you need to replace a cartridge.
Good Luck.
