Question about Lexmark X3480 All-In-One Printer
Please help me to find the cover switch
I assume you have the 'Cover Open' problem. I have just had the same problem.
You have to remove the top cover, then remove the scanner - but take care not to damage the ribbon and power cables. The cover switch is in a hole an inch or so to the right and up from the centered cartridge. It is a micro switch operated by a white bit of plastic. The chances are this has become detached and needs to be located from the bowels of the printer. It can be snapped back into place or the mocr switch taped closed.
To take of the scanner you have to squeeze or twist out the pegs on the support arm, then open the hinges to release the scanner. HOWEVER before releasing unplug the ribbon and power cables !!

foreign objects and paper scraps. Then, disconnect the
machine from the power for several minutes and
