The only way to setup the printer without the proper drivers would be to use windows add new printer. However windows does not have lexmark x1270 listed. You can dlownload the software from lexmark & install the software / drivers without using the cd.
You need to choose your version of windows to continue.
This next site will show you how to connect your x1270.
Also listed is the user's guide manual.

Lexmark all in one center download

I had this same problem and it doesn't look like anyone else has solved it yet. I spoke with tecnical support and got it resolved. 
I have windows vista so your instructions might be slightly different. 
start> computer> double click the C folder> drivers> printer> 1200(or whatever series printer you have)> applications> then the  set up folder with the CD icon. 
It will install the scanner software. Also, the website has been updated on lexmark so that includes the all in one software now. So, if you have the older version from 2008, then delete the old software out of your printer folder and go to lexmark and install the new one. 
Any other questions, email me. [email protected]

How to tell when its out of ink not printing and 2 lights blinking

Its not an Issue with the Out of Ink Error: Please try the below mentioned steps and let me know what happens: It insists there is a Cartridge problem on the Printer............ In this Case take out the Paper from the Paper Feed Tray........ Unplug the Power Supply from the Printer.......... Remove both the Cartridges from the Printer.......... Now take a size 10 Envelope fold it so that it should become like a thin long strip........ Now Insert that Envelope on the left side corner of the Printer and move it from right to left and left to right as fast as u can for about 10 times.......... Now Insert the Ordinary Papers onto the Printer and insert both the catridges and Turn on the Printer...... Blinking Stopped...........Issue Resolved....... Still Blinking: Remove both the Cartridges take a Paper Towel turn the catridges direction so that u can see a Copper plate with small boxes on it....... Just wipe it twice or thrice with the Paper Towel.......... Now insert it and Power on the Printer and see whether the Lights are still blinking if it is still blinking...... Good Luck!!!!!

The 924.01 service fuser error indicates either the fuser unit is not able to reach/maintain the correct temperature or the fuser unit is not working. What you can do:
  • Turn off printer. Turn on after 30 seconds.
  • Plug printer straight to power outlet in the wall. Bypass any surge devices or power strips, they draw away power from the printer.

If problem continues, contact Lexmark technical support(under warranty) or your local authorized service provider for professional repair.

Printer lexmark ej error

The EJ error message on your model indicates that the print cartridge carrier has stalled. It could be due to the cartridges or the encoder strip (transparent strip found behind the cartridge carrier) has gotten loose from its position. Please follow steps below to identify and fix the problem:
  1. Open the printer cover and remove both the cartridges. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer/unplug the printer from the power source and then slide the carrier to the center.
  2. Check the encoder strip and make sure it is secured in its place.
  3. Close the printer cover.
  4. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.
  5. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  6. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
  7. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge.
  8. If no error appears, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
Should you still need assistance, please leave a comment to my response and I'll get back to you. Should this resolves your problem, your rating will be greatly appreciated.

What is an ORC?

ORC is life form in the Lord of The Rings. What you want is OCR which stands for Optical Character Recognition. It is the software that converts a scanned document into a string of characters that you can edit to correct OCR errors.To be able to scan to a computer the computer and the printer must be connected through a USB port or be part of the same network. When you press the scan button, the printer tries to communicate with the computer and launch the scanning software installed on the computer.Install the software that shipped with your printer, connect the computer and the printer. If everything is correctly connected and installed, the scanning software will open to receive the scanned document.

I can't scan on my

The Lexmark OCR scan software is available in the installation disk that came with the printer. You can explore the installation disk and look for the Abby setup application in the OCR folder (for Windows). For Mac OS, right-click on the Install icon and choose Show Package Contents. Open Contents folder > open Package folder and manually install the Abby Finereader application.
However, if you don't have the installation disk, contact Lexmark technical support. Thanks.

Printing Blank Pages

Try checking the ink cartridges and make sure they have ink in them or it will keep printing blank pages. Then try printing a test page by going to control panel, clicking on printers and faxes and right clicking on your printer and going to properties. Then go all the way down to the bottom of the page and click print test page. It will clean the printer cartridges and align them to print correctly. It should work after that.

Hi My Name is Nicole Watts in for some reason my

It sounds like you are trying to print a PDF file and your computer needs Adobe Acrobat to open the file before it can print. You may want to try to put the PDF file onto a thumb drive and plug that drive directly into the printers USB port. Most Lexmark printers,(mine included) can directly access PDF files and let you print directly. If it doesn't work, then just download Adobe Acrobat. Its safe and it works.

A 900 Firmware error means that something has corrupted the code on your printer.

The easiest way to fix this is to go to www.lexmark.com > Support > Downloads and download the latest firmware for your printer.
