Lexmark X1185 won't scan.

I have a Lexmark X1185 and just got a new computer with Vista. I downloaded the correct driver for Vista, and it all seemed to be working great. However now, if I want to scan something, it doesn't respond at all. I can push the copy button and it scans the picture and prints a copy, but wont scan and save. Does not respond.

I have the same issues with a Lexmark printer, Lexmark printers are not very user friendly with Vista. What I did is create a dual boot with XP and installed the software for the printer there. If interested in that follow these instructions or contact lexmark support.

When computer turns on, check the System type of your Windows 7 by going to the Start menu ? right-click on Computer ? Properties. Take note of the System Type, 32-bit or 64-bit.

I got a new computer with windows vista and it will not recongine the printer


To fix this you need to download the Windows Vista driver for your computer. The driver is basiclly is the software that allows your printer and your operating system to communicate twith eachother.

The Lexmark 1100 series driver includes the x1185 and you can download it here:

That should get your printing in no time , simply download it and run it!

hi selim2004,

You need to download the Windows Vista compatible driver for your X1185 at

Be sure to select the correct Windows Vista driver (there is one for Vista (x64) and one for Vista (which is the 32-bit version and the one you are most likely running on your PC)

Hope you find this information helpful in getting your printer to function correctly with your PC
Kind regards and thanks for using the FixYa service

Lexmark X1185 won't scan.


I believe you have to push the scan button in order for it to scan and save. The copy buttons will only print either a black copy or a color copy.
