Question about Lexmark MFP-X3470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

When I open the printer door to remove the cartridge, the cartridge does not move to the center so I can remove it, but stays "hidden" on the left edge under the box, and I cannot get to it to remove it. How can I get the cartridge in a position where I can reach it to get it out. This is SO frustrating. I used to have a Dell....you open the lid and the cartridgs move to the center for easy removal. HELP!

Change print head on kodak 5300 printer


Are your asking how to replace the printhead?

First you need to turn On the printer and open the printer access door where you can see the Ink. Now wait for the Printhead to stop into the middle then remove the ink cartridges both ink and black., Now to rmove the Old printhead you need to press a Tab which is hidden on the printhead., heres the step to remove the printhead which for me the hardest part

-Point your index finger on the white sticker that attached on the printhead or the bullseye sticker(If theres no white sticker on the print head just put your index finger on the middle of the printhead)

-Now your index finger is on the middle of the white sticker right? Move your index finger upward unti you feel a latch that you can press., Just press and full then your printhead wil be removed

-Now Your ready to insert your new printhead
-To insert new printhead just put the printhead on the carriage of the printer and gently press the white sticker of your new printhead make sure that you will hear a clicking sounds then put your cartridges back

-Theres some instances that the printhead will not stay on the middle., it keeps on staying on the right or on the leftside for you to solve that heres the step

-Turn on the printer open printer access door and wait for the printhead move into the center and if the printhead its on the center immediately unplug the power cable so the printhead will not move.

Print cartages won't move when I open to change.


You can manually move a printhead( the one that holds the cartridges) to the center. Open the door at the back, turn the wheels clockwise, and while turning, manually move the printhead to the center..

Paper jam?


Check Paper light flashes but there isn't a paper related problem The check paper light may also flash if there are other problems. Verify the following conditions:
  • Verify that the print cartridge door is closed.
  • The print carriage may be jammed, follow these steps to correct the problem:
    1. Open the print cartridge access door. If the print carriage can move, it should move to center. If the print carriage stays all the way left, unplug the power cord and then plug it back in. This will reset the unit and may allow the print carriage to move from the left.
    2. Disconnect the power cord from the all-in-one.
    3. Remove both print cartridges.
    4. Move the print carriage left and right slightly to verify that the print carriage will move freely. If the print carriage will not move freely, check for obstructions.
    5. Close the print cartridge access door.
    6. Plug the power cord back in.
    7. After the all-in-one initializes, the print cartridge light will flash. Open the access door and install the print cartridges.
    8. Close the print cartridge access door. If the problem returns, remove the print cartridges and wipe the electrical contacts before reinstalling them.
  • Try to make a copy. If the all-in-one pulls in paper but cannot make a copy, there may be a problem with the scanner mechanism. Contact HP for assistance.
