    On scanning the results are very dark, with blue strips through the text. photographs come out almost completely black. the intensity of the scanning light is very low more toward a yellowish color instead of being a bright white. Is it possible to replace the scanner light bulb in this printer?

SOURCE: Lexmark x4550 wireless scanner pin code

The Pin code, if it's the 4 digit pin - is one you can create yourself to be used when scanning as a login, but is not necessary, it can be left blank, unless one was already entered upon installation. The manual can also be downloaded from the Lexmark site, type in your model # (ei: x4550) in the search box on the lexmark site, then technical support & then publications, you should find the "getting started" & "user manual".

Why are pages scanning with lines running through them, but printing perfectly fine?


Try cleaning the rollers. Usually you have to remove the cartridge to get to the rollers that moves the paper.

THERE IS A LINE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE SCANNED COPIES, CANNOT SEE ANY OBVIOUS DIRT ON ROLLERS


Look at the glass strip through which the documents are scanned. Even a tiny spot there results in a dark line along the scanned image. Often such spots come from scanning a document with corrections made using the white correction fluid :)
The users manual (UM) describes the cleaning procedure on pages 61-62, you can get the manual here:

Lines on my copies


As the page you wish to copy goes through the document feeder, it passes the scanner as well as a white plastic band that the scanner "compares" the dark writing or data on the page to. If this white plastic band is not very clean, the scanner reads the dirt as if it is part of the image you are scanning. Try cleaning the band as thoroughly as possible, as well as the small piece of glass to the left of the larger glass on the flat bed scanner. Make another copy to test your results.

Hope this helps!

When scanning color document, blue tone is present as background shade


Have long experince with PixEdit program using Kodaks. PixEdit usually comes around it after a firmware upgrade on the scanner. Not sure about this specific model but at least OK on other models of Kodak.

Dark strip down center of page when coping from tray


There is a small strip of glass on the left side directly under the edge of the scanner, About a half an inch wide. It has something on it.
May be very hard to see, use a strong glass cleaner or some alcohol and a regular piece of paper to clean it with.

Scanning document leaves streak down right hand side


Even a single grain of dust or a single strand of hair on the scanning glass will cause the scan head to perceive ink/image where there is none. Deffinetly try cleaning the glass using a good window cleaner, and a cloth that is completely clean, or even a peice of newspaper. If the black line remains, I would suggest taking it into a service center to have the scan head itself cleaned.

Scan image is discolored


The scanning carriage in the scanner may have lost the home position and needs to be reset. 1. Shut the computer system off, and then disconnect the scanner from the power source. Leave the scanner disconnected from the power source for at least one full minute. 2. Reconnect the power, and then restart the computer system. 3. When the computer system has fully restarted, try scanning again. Ensure the issue is not caused by Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) EMI can cause similar Image Quality issues. Verify that the scanner is not in the direct vicinity of the computer monitor and/or speakers. If so, relocate the scanner at least three feet away from the monitor and/or speakers and retry the scan. good luck..
