    I put in the CD and begin the "Easy Installation" and get all the way to the end where it says "printer detected, please wait until the installation process is complete". Then after about three minutes it says "printer not detected".

    I've unplugged, replugged, started and restarted the printer and computer with the same issue happening over and over again. Toll free customer support is available Mon-Sat according to the quick start guide, but when I called (it's Saturday) it says they're closed and are open Monday-Friday only. Frustrating. This should be easy.

Printer cannot find application list for Scanner

Good day!
The scan software might not be installed properly in the computer. Try to run the installation cd in your computer again. If you have already used the installation cd in the computer, running it again should give you three options - Install a printer, Update/Upgrade or Install additional softwares. Choose Install Additional Softwares. In
the next page, place a check mark in Abby FineReader OCR software. Continue and finish the installation. Also, check your
firewall and make sure to allow all Lexmark communications to go
through. Try scanning again. Hope this helps.
