My lexmark printer x 3470 will not says the cover is open but it does not appear to be and none of the controls will function.... help please??????

It could be due to the cartridges in the carrier or the sensor for the cover has become stuck. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges from the printer. Close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, re-insert the cartridges and close the cover. Check for any errors.

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: 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.

My lexmark 3470 the screen says cover open and it isn't. Help

Hi there
It is seeing it open because it may be the sencer or switch on this cover is broken or stuck open have a look at where the sencer or may be a switch.
Some times if you handy with your hands you can do some thing about it like stick some thing in the switch hole to click it on or if it a sencer put some tape over it then it thinks it closed.

All the best Pineworks

X3470 printer says cover open and no buttons will work after I changed the ink cartridge and closed the cover it says cover open. the only way it will shut off is to unplug it.then it says 3470 then goes...

It is a common fail in this model there is a plastic arm which works as an extender for the switch that senses that the cover is open this part is easily detached from its place(in my case not broken but it could happen I suppose) resulting in printer showing that message. the switch is situated under the the scanner in the middle . when you lift the scanner part to see the ink cartridge, you see a plastic part underneath that looks like a 2/3 of a circle that is the part that pushes the switch. 
You should open the printers gut and place the loose part back in place. Be ware that flat cables contact ends could easily brake use caution. (if you shake your printer you may hear the sound of the lose part).

You may ask if you need further assist.
and PLZ rate!

Happy solving problems!

Lexmark 3470 not accepting paper

Did it work before cover repair? ie Did you un do any plugs when "fixing" or cables? check them, re do steps from previous repair and check, switchs, sensors, all connections are present and secured correctly.
