  1. Disconnect the power cable and the USB cable.

  1. Remove the cartridges from the printer.

  1. Plug the power cable back into the wall socket

  2. Reconnect the USB cable.
This can happen if the lever on the cover open sensor is knocked off the switch assembly.
If this is the case you would have to contact Lexmark.

Printer will not print or shut down


reset memory; unplug; plug back in while HOLDING DOWN STOP KEY. This resets/clears memory

tape down the little black plastic lever (usually on left side) so it can't pop back up which causes it to invoke error message "cover open" and "cover closed" who needs a machine to tell a cover is open?
