Hopefully it just needs to be re-seated in the connector. It to snaps out of it holder. If I were designing it, I would have put a pin thru the switch with an e-clip on each end. I urge you all to go to http: The rest of this seems simple enough. Last night before your help I found a lower and to the right black lever, which made a little metal thing directly below the switch move–which was interesting, but NOT what I needed.

Installed old LEXMARK X on Windows 7, but will not work. – Microsoft Community

A handy feature to say the least. This thread is locked. The thing I liked about this machine was that I bought it for cheap and it I desperately needed a printer, scanner, copier.

In my opinion, this printer is a piece of garbage. Your methods were extremely descriptive and knowledgeable.

Did you ever receive help for your paper feed problem? Although I didn’t receive the model I ordered, that one I got is nice.

It was a pain, but I got it fixed, thanks to your directions. What a design flaw! I had the same issue; everything worked great until trying to get the nylon lever arm back on; took me about 10 tries. The white lever fell out when I shook it upside down and after a few attempts managed to click it back in place, without even using a screwdriver! You even posted pics? I was able to follow Rob M’s directions and repair the Lexmark without dismanteling the printer.

Can you help me figure out what to do? Have you found anything thus far?

Worst case would be if that ribbon cable were damaged. Please let me know. I didn’t do too much added damage to the case. OK, so I did lexmafk of your instructions and I am still getting the cover open message of death. Is there any permanent solution? I would have had to have done this directly through the company too, as no one services Lexmark printers.

Under Hardware and X33470, click Use a printer. Glad to hear the mystery of Lexmark cover-open has been solved. It has features for photos that I never used. Add to Wish List. Thanks for marking this as the answer.
