Message says lid is open when it is closed


Hi,

Please try out the blow mentioned 2 options. I am sure the problem will be sorted out:

  1. When you lift the cover up along the back end of the gray plastic bottom cover, you'll see a square opening close to the right side hinge.
    There should be a little white plastic piece sticking out of there. If not, it fell into the guts of the printer. You have to remove the gray plastic and find the white lever and replace it onto a micro-switch along the back where the square opening is/was.
    You'll see a PCB (printed circuit board) there and the micro-switch will be located on that...
Hope this helps


2. Remove the screws on the front of the cover when it is open. Once removed At the back of the unit 2/3 rd from the left there is a small switch if this is pushed in ( and held by whatever means sellotape etc it will opperate normally (to change cartridge you may have to re do)

X3480 printer.message is saying;cover is open


the meaning of cover is open means --------the cover means.the thing which you lift to remove or install the cartridges.just keep that cover closed.if that cover is closed still its showing the same error.then the sensor which detects the cover closed is got moved from its orignal position.to reset the sensor just tap all the sides of the printer for couple of minutes.mostly the top side and front side of the printer.and then check out the error must go away.if still the same error then its quite possible that sensor is broked as it very very delicate .so it needs a technician to replace the broken sensor.the cost to replace the sensor must not exceed then $5.

Lexmark 3480 cover open


Hi I have 30+ printers and each differs but sorry I do not have your printer. But generally you will find a corresponding female recess somewhere around where the lid closes on the main frame of the printer.

Hope it helps

Cover open error


There is a latch that preses a small switch when you close the cover (look for this) to indicate that it it close if it is broken you can tweek it using a toothpick or anything that may press the switch temporarily this may alow it to work as long as the switch stays down.

X3480 cover open message


Ajkill is right, although his description isn`t very exact. Take off the complete scanner part: (back hinges first, then the blue arresting lever at the front), disconnect the flat band cable and the power supply for the scanner part and take off the complete scanner part. You´ll see a triangular part that goes in a slot of the dark grey cover which covers the rest. It should press againt a white lever which itself presses a little black switch sitting on the printed circuit board. If this white lever has fallen off the switch is always in "Cover open" position. To get it and reposition it (if it isn`t broken) you have to take off the dark grey cover which covers all the rest: take off the front screws and carefully lever out the sides with a small screw driver. Good luck with the repositioning, it is very fiddely and to see how and where it has to go you best use a magnifying glass!  But I could manage it and my printer is working now again. And good luck with fitting it all together again without breaking anything!
