Where to buy the Lexmark prestige pro top cover hinge of scanner

In less than a year usage of my prestige pro850. The left hinge holding the cover of scanner broke. And if I scan I always need to fully press the top side to get a clear scan. Everything is working well except for this lemon part.

Lexmark doesn't sell or manufacture replacement hinges. If your printer is still under warranty, please contact our technical support team via phone so they can send you a replacement printer. If not, just remove the hinge and its assembly so you will be able to totally close the cover of the printer and be able to scan from the ADF.

Left hinge broke on lexmark pro 905


Not a perfect fix, but this is what I did: There are 2 spring-loaded pistons located on the printer side of the hinge that cause this problem. I think there should be another piece of plastic that holds the top of the printer hinge down on these springs, but when this hinge is gone, the top of the printer is held upward by them. If you use some pliers to gently pull these spring-loaded pistons upward, you can easily pull them out, followed by the springs they cover. Once removing these, the top of the printer lies flat. The top is still unstable, but mine will now feed paper just fine and closes. Hope this helps! WebRepOverall ratingThis site has no rating(not enough votes)

The top left "hinge" won't seat, therefore the top feed can't be used to fax, scan or copy.


It's possible that the hinge of the scanner cover broke. If that's the case, you won't be able to scan from the ADF (Auto Document Feeder). If the printer is still under warranty, please call our technical support team to have the printer replaced.

Lexmark x6570 hinge is messed up so im getting cover open message


I have a Lexmark X6570 All In One Wi-Fi model. Just had the problem where I went to print and received an error message saying that the cover was open (when it wasn't). I noticed that the back right hand corner had slightly popped out of place for no apparent reason. Tried to push it back into place with no luck.

Here's what happened and how to fix it:
There are two plastic hinges at the back of the 6500 series printers that allow the top cover to open for access to the ink cartridge carriage. The lower ends of the hinges are cylindrical shaped and each contains a very stiff steel spring inside. They are designed to prop the cover of the printer up and hold it open when opened. As the plastic material ages, it may weaken and the tension of the internal spring may break the round end of the hinge off. This causes the printer cover to not fully close (even though it may appear so). There is a switch in the main printer body that detects when the top cover it open (even partially), and the printer won't work in this condition.

To fix this, open the top cover and carefully disconnect the 3 wire harnesses and the ribbon cable that run from the top cover to the base of the printer. Then remove the 'paper jam' hatch cover from the back of the printer. There are two phillips screws on the back panel of the pinter (one is located behind the paper jam hatch cover). Remove these screws (they secure the plastic hinges in place). You should now be able to lift the complete top cover/ scanner table assembly off the rest of the printer. Look for a steel spring about 3 inches long...remove this along with the round base of the hinge which may have broken off and remained down inside the printer. Glue this piece back onto the end of the hinge, but leave the spring out. Now reassemble the printer in the reverse order of disassembly and you should be good to go. Note that the top cover of the printer will not stay propped open on it's own with the spring removed, but this is not really an issue.

I am not sure if new replacement hinges are readily available from Lexmark or other sources.
