Question about Lexmark Platinum Pro905 multifunction InkJet Printer
The touch screen seems to be stuck on the incoming call screen. If I press ignore, the noise sounds but nothing else happens. I've tried turning it off, hanging up the phone, putting them on the hooks, pressing ignore, and even opening the cover. Please help, this is a huge part of our business
Just Unplug the Power Supply and replug it in after 5 minutes, That should be able to fix the issue.

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!

This is because the white plastic rocker switch which is very poorly attached to the micro switch at the back of the unit has become dislodged which means the micro switch is permanently open. Unfortunately due to its very poor design it has probably lost its plastic lugs which keep it attached to the micro switch.
Locate the dislodged rocker switch, you may have to turn the printer upside down and shake it. If it won't come out, shake it after removing the cover...
If the plastic lugs are still in place then you are lucky. You will need to get inside the unit to refit it...
Open the unit as if you were about to replace the ink. Unclip the plastic prop at the top; you can pinch it using a pair of pliers. The cover will now hinge up much further, there is some minor friction still but it will come up to 90 degrees with a gentle tug.
It will now easily lift away from the hinges on the main body. You can remove the ribbon leads if you like. They go back again very easily.
You should now be able to get your fingers inside the unit. You will need a flat blade screw driver to assist you refitting the rocker. You should feel it clip into place if the plastic lugs are in place, even if they are worn. Test it and check it won’t fall off again easily.
It is much more likely that it will fall off again as the lugs have worn away.
This can be fixed by heating a medium sized paper clip with a lighter and pushing it through the side of the rocker, in the same location as the lugs. Cut the paper clip with the pliers, this will leave a 2-3mm pin sticking through the side of the rocker. Do this for both sides. Resite the rocker, then using a flat blade screw driver push the pins into the holes on the black micro switch. This should be quite easy as the rocker will still site in the correct position even if they are missing.
You will now have a fully functioning switch which will be far stronger than the original design.
Put everything back together, and test it.

I should point out that I got linked to this problem while looking for a solution to this issue with my e232, and the post was for other e232 users. This will not work on an HP F4235.

It sounds like your paper stock may be too thick for the printer. Many printers do not handle paper heavier than about 26 lb. without some problems. The issue is the paper-rollers are not sufficiently strong to grab the paper, bend it toward the paper path, and then feed the paper into the machine.
Try using a lighter weight paper - 20 to 24 lb. max., and see if the printer does a better job for you!
