Question about Lexmark X500n Color Laser All-in-One Printer
This is an error message we get on a consistent basis now on our laser-jet printer. #1 - is this as simple as changing out a CPU fan. #2 - how do I do this?
Exact same problem. No fan appears to be available. Lexmark says it requires a total motherboard replacement. Printer is 14 months old, 2 months out of warranty.
I fixed this in 12 minutes. I took the fan out, lubed it up with a high-tech petroleum based lube and freed up the fan. Reinstalled and no more error message. We ordered a new one so when this fails, we'll be ready. It seems that moisture got into the axle and corroded it and caused it to lock up.

Wow! After several hours searching I found the fan connectors to buy (since the fan comes with bare wires from cypower.com). The connector is made by JST America and can be purchased from Digikey at www.digikey.com
Part number 455-1126-ND for the housing
Part number 455-2148-1-ND for the pins
(You have to buy at least 10 housings and 100 pins but together they cost about $2.50 total)
You can buy the crimper too, but they are $1,300. I just use a needle nose pliers.

I had an old celeron processor 12VDC fan, cutted some plastic, tied some wires with a 6VDC adaptor, made a whole for the screw, and I have circulating air again.

The Cypower-Fan has no connector. If you need the Fan WITH CONNECTOR order it here:

To continue turn off then on
A main motor (M1) error has occurred. Motor
operation is verified during device power-up.
1. Turn the device off and then on.
2. Verify that nothing is hindering the main
motor. If necessary, remove all paper
trays and the print cartridge, and then
turn on the device and listen for motor
3. Verify that the main motor is connected
to connector J407 on the ECU. (See
Figure 6-9 ECU wiring on page 195.)
You might have to remove the main
cooling fan to see this connection.
4. If the message persists, replace the
