    We have no way to tell what make and model your computer is, let alone what
    your "service repair" menu is.
    Are ther any errors shown, and if so, what are they.

    your lexmark printer is a 4 in 1 deice, can print, scan , copy and fax as

    import from scanners and cameras and double clcik on lexmark icon to scan

    Let me know the information i asked you and i assure you i can help you to
    make the printer scan as well

    Great !! thats good to know that you have managed to make the printer
    working . Now i would like to tell you that everytime you are scanning
    something , you have to follow the same steps .

    However i do believe that for your x7170 , you must have a program saying
    lexmark All in one center , you can also use it for scanning .

    Let me know if you need further help.
    Cheers !!
