Question about Lexmark X3470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

How and where do you replace the plastic bit that comes out on X3470

I too found a flimsy bit of plastic that came out in my X3470 Lexmark all in one printer. We took the printer apart almost but could find where it triggers the microswitch to turn off message " lid open." Can anyone tell me where you put it back. Thanks greencrumbli

Hi Followed the photographs and instructions posted on the blog and managed to get it back on ok. The printer is working again and I just hope the plastic bit doesn't come off again. Many thanks, Greencrumbli

I have x3470 all in one+ and I have mircosoft 7 and I'm try to set my print into my tower which is new with the 7 program what doI do

I suggest not to plug the Lexmark X3470 printer to your computer yet. Check if your Windows 7 is running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by clicking on the Windows logo Start menu > right click on Computer > Properties. Then download the printer driver using this link: (for 32-bit) or this link: (for 64-bit). Execute the file and follow the instructions on the software. Thanks for choosing Lexmark.

Lexmark X3470 will not scan. OS Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Have downloaded drivers

The scan software can only be installed using the installation cd that came with the printer. It's not included in the downloaded driver online. If you don't have it or you lost the installation cd, I suggest you contact Lexmark at 1-800-LEXMARK(1-800-539-6275). They will be able to send you one for free.

My Lexmark X3470 pops up an error message "Cover Open" and it is closed????????

if you carefully remove the whole cover undo the 4 screws and gently prise the locating tabs away from body disconnect the small multiplug thing and the digital strip thing they come out easy but gently does it! then gently prise the hinges the hole scanner unit cover lifts off you will probably find the same as i did the small plastic sensor thing rolling around in there, fit this back over the sensor switch that you will see on the circuit board its very small but is there, poke it gently beforehand to check its moving ok, once the plastic bit is clipped back over your problem should not then exist! my cover open message went straight away, it drove me nuts trying to find out why! now my paper jams and cant find out why! hope this has been some help to you
