Lexmark x3470 scanner (this is NOT the 'cover open' problem)

My problem is that when i plug in the printer, the scanner begins to make this ticking sound. the 'lens' tends to move to the left but it does not stop and it begins making that ticking sound. what could that be? how can i fix it? thanks in advanced.

Printer Lexmark x3470 showing "Cover open" / "Cub abierta" while closed,...


Hi
This is a common fail in this model. there is a white plastic arm which works as an extender for the switch that senses if the cover is open or closed. This part is easily detached from its place (in my case not broken but it could happen I suppose) resulting in printer showing the message "Cover open" / "Cub abierta". the switch is situated under the scanner in the middle . when you lift the scanner part to see the ink cartridge, you see a plastic part underneath between the hinges 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 precaution!

(if you shake your printer you may hear the sound of the lose part).

Happy solving problems!

Lexmark x3470 printer says "cover open" and it will not do anything. Curtis


Try these as I found them from Lexmark's website

Solution What you will see
The printer displays a 'Cover open, please close cover' error message, even though the cover is closed.
Possible cause of the error
This can happen if the lever on the cover open sensor is knocked off the switch assembly.
What to do
Take the following steps to try to determine if there is a hardware fault:
Steps Actions 1 Remove and replace the cartridges from the printer. 2 Disconnect the power cable and the USB cable. 3 Check that the power cable is plugged directly into a wall socket. 4 Reconnect the power cable. 5 Close the printer cover. 6 If the error persists, please contact Lexmark Technical Support for further instructions.

COVER OPEN


There is a plastic lever in the back of the scanner where it comes into contact with a part made to push the lever when closed to work the switch. It is a poor design. The lever fits over the small micro-switch very loosly and the tabs wear out really quick. Lexmark will not send another lever. They state buy another printer. If you are real careful, you can put the lever back on the switch and hold it in place while you close the lid.
