If you are in Canada call 1 800 663 7662, they are aware of this problem and i just called them and they are shipping me a free replacement, i had to ask to speak to a manager, mine was 17 mths old so i am not sure if there is a limit as to how old your printer can be, remember be polite, stay cool and if they offer a replacement to thank them

Lexmark x3470 printer says "cover open" and it will not do anything. Curtis


Try these as I found them from Lexmark's website

Solution What you will see
The printer displays a 'Cover open, please close cover' error message, even though the cover is closed.
Possible cause of the error
This can happen if the lever on the cover open sensor is knocked off the switch assembly.
What to do
Take the following steps to try to determine if there is a hardware fault:
Steps Actions 1 Remove and replace the cartridges from the printer. 2 Disconnect the power cable and the USB cable. 3 Check that the power cable is plugged directly into a wall socket. 4 Reconnect the power cable. 5 Close the printer cover. 6 If the error persists, please contact Lexmark Technical Support for further instructions.

Try looking around the edges of the cover or in the hinge area for a switch that may be stuck. Most covers have a switch to indicate that the cover is open, the cover may not be seated properly or the switch may be stuck in the open position.

Printer cover is open, but is closed please help


Check every possible open "door" in the printer. Be certain that the cartridges are installed correctly. Check for even a small jam. If all else fails, "slam" the cover. Good luck

Cover open is on display


put your finger on the second hole on the top from the right and press the switch (it's small, gotta try a little...), when the display changes, press copy and close the door... it just worked for me!!
