You have probably broken off a small pin on the back of the cover that you open when you are to change the ink cartridge. Had the same problem my selv. This pin touches, when cover closed a small button that gives the printer a signal that the cover is closed. Solved this with putting something on that button, and taped it so it wouldnt go away.

Cover open sensor is knocked off the switch assembly - Please show and tell me how I can repair it.


Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges. Make sure the cartridges are properly inserted in the carrier and the lids snap in.

Says copier lid open


The small "sensor" that should "trip" when you close the lid is not engaging. Blow a little compressed-air into that micro-switch, so that it works correctly.

Display gives message;Top is open,but it's closed.


Your lid sensor maybe broken.
to check open the printer like you would when you put new ink in and you will see a white sticking down from the lid on the right side. what that does is depresses a switch which tells the printer if the lid is closed or open. if you put your hand under the tab and feel in the hole if the you feel a tab there and it moves and then springs back in position then it is ok but if it is not there or doesn't spring back then the printer is shot.
also call lexmark if it is there but keeps coming up saying lid is open, and they will walk you through some quick fixes that may or may not fix it.

Ink cartridge


If you have a 3470, you need a #1 cartridge. If you have a 3480, you need a #2 cartridge. If it is a 3400 series, there is only one cartridge. It lets you print both in color and in black.

Lexmark 3480 cover open


Hi I have 30+ printers and each differs but sorry I do not have your printer. But generally you will find a corresponding female recess somewhere around where the lid closes on the main frame of the printer.

Hope it helps

My printer keeps saying Cover Open and won't let me do anything else


Hi All printers have a protruding piece of plastic on the cover / lid, when out of place it tells the printer the cover is open

When you close lid it is inserted into main frame which tells the printer that the lid is closed.

Look for this it may be damaged. If so roll a small piece of paper and insert ito the recepticle hole.

It will trick printer that the lid is now closed.

You will need to remove it each time you need to change inks etc...

Good Luck!
