Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Anyone knows where to buy a cartridge carrier?

I bought the Lexmark 3500 - 4500 series all in one printer a year ago, I stopped using it for a while and now i wanted to start using it again. I bought a new ink and wanted to chnage it, but it doesn't seem to have the cartridge carrier inside of the printer...there is nothing to put the cartridge into. Can I somehow buy this part anywhere? I did try to do some research online, but it hasn't been successful so far.... If anyone knows, it would be very helpful. Thank you!

Cartridge Error .... help!? I've read all the other replies and it's not helped!


Just make sure you are using a genuine Lexmark cartridge and not some remanufactured, refilled or clone cartridges. Please follow the steps below to identify and fix cartridge issues:

  1. Make sure the printer is on.
  2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-In-One is busy. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer or unplug the printer from the power source and then carefully slide the carrier to the center.
  3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  7. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
  8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

    Lexmark 5400 cartridge carrier slams up against back???? Won't stop!! It's a new printer, put in a high cap black and low cap color cartridge. Any ideas how to fix this?


    Cartridges may not be seated properly. Remove all the cartridges from the printer. Close the cover. Unplug the printer from the power source. Wait for about 10-15 seconds. Plug printer back to power source. If printer ink cartridge carrier still slams on the sides, encoder strip of the printer might be damaged. If it's still within warranty from where you bought it, have it replaced at that store. If ink cartridge carrier is not slamming to the sides, re-insert the cartridges. Make sure there are no obstructions along the carrier's path. Close the cover. Let the printer print the alignment page. If it's still going to slam the carrier, have it replaced.

    Lexmark all in one x5100 series begins to print then stops with"hardware error message 0502


    This is copied out of Lexmark's KnowledgeBase, just so you know I'm not coming up with this off of the top of my head. Go to www.lexmark.com and click Support > Technical Support, and then search for ID: ENUS22800 if you would like to see the original, complete with pictures. Or, here's a text version:

    The 0502 error can have any of four possible causes:

    The steps below will help you to identify and resolve each of these four issues.

    1. Turn the printer off and disconnect the power cable from the back of the unit.

    3. Remove both of the cartridges.

    Refilling lexmark cartridges x2500


    There are a couple ways to trick it into accepting the cartridge. You can put a different one in, take it out and then put the filled one in. Or you can find a refill kit with instructions on what contacts to cover with tape and you have to do it 2 or 3 times to get the printer to reset. Sometimes you can shut off the computer and printer for 20 min and start it up again. Or you can get the sledge hammer and smash the stupid printer before it sucks up your life savings and vow never to buy from a company that profits from causing problems that they tell you can only be solved by using more of their overpriced solutions.
