Remove the ink cartridge.
Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet.
Reconnect the powercord to the electrical outlet.
Power the unit on (if it is off)
Reinstall the ink cartridge.
close the cover and print.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Please help me find the spot to re place the ink cartige to an x 3470 printer


Perhaps the Lexmark X3400 Series User's Guide will give you a better picture. You can download it using this link: http://bit.ly/cSUqq8. Scroll to page 52 for the instructions on how to change the print cartridge.
Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't position automatically to the middle even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip and gently slide the carrier to the middle of the printer. Load the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to power source. Thank you for choosing Lexmark.

Installed a new ink cartridge and the display mentions cover open when it is closed.


never let a machine defeat you
there's a sensor in the printer that checks ink levels. the sensor uses a beam of light to check; if the light bounces back, the machine assumes there is ink in the cart and continues to operate. If the light is not bounced back, the machine assumes that the cart is empty and starts beeping or displaying an error message. on a refill the ink is not "packed in" like it is on a new factory one. so take black electrical tape and tape it around the spine and the outline of the cartridge to make it ALL BLACK with no transparencies, which causes the light to beam back (sensor then triggers error message)

tricking the machine into thinking the cartridge is full defeats it.

Cover open is on display


put your finger on the second hole on the top from the right and press the switch (it's small, gotta try a little...), when the display changes, press copy and close the door... it just worked for me!!
good luck

Printer Ink is Low


If had refilled the ink then this printer as in build sensor which works only once , that reasons your getting this message if your using original Lexmark cart then if your getting this message then you can contact lexmark get the cart replaced as the cart comes with 6 months warranty.

YELLOW INK LOSE


Take all carts out. Have a close look into the cart holder. If you have lost ink it will be beneath the cart holder! That might be because the cart holder leaks. You need a new cart holder then. You have to open the printers top cover, carefully take the holder out, clean the bottom of printer and replace the holder with a new one.

This happens sometimes because the glue which fastens the foil (this is the bottom of the holder!) lost its adhesivness.

Printer Door


Hi,

I have that exact problem at work. There is a bump on the right side of the lid...and when you close the lid it presses on a lever. Check and see that the bump actually pushes that lever downwards. That's how the printer determines that it's closed.
