Normally when you lift the cover, the cartridges will shift to the middle or someplace where you can replace them easily. If your printer isn't doing that, then there must be some internal problem. When you lift the cover, is there any indication on your computer or printer? If not, then the cover switch may be bad. Another thing you might check is the printer software on the pc. Is there provision to place the printer in change cartridge mode?

Changing ink cartridge

  • Here is an instruction set I found at
  • Step 1 Press the "Power" button to turn on your Lexmark X2500 3-in-1 printer.
  • Step 2 Open the top portion of the printer to reveal the ink cartridges.
  • Step 3 Lift the gray plastic cover on the left. Remove the empty black #28 ink cartridge. Next, lift the purple plastic cover on the right and remove the empty color #29 ink cartridge.
  • Step 4 Remove the new black #28 ink refill cartridge from its packaging. Tear the protective strip of paper from the cartridge's sensor. Now, remove the new color #29 ink refill cartridge from its packaging and tear the protective strip of paper from the cartridge's sensor.
  • Step 5 Turn the cartridges so that you can read the label. This is the way the cartridges should face when being put into the printer.
  • Step 6 Slide the black #28 cartridge into the slot on the left side and push it down. Slide the color #29 cartridge into the slot on the right side and push down.
  • Step 7 Push the gray plastic cover down over the #28 cartridge until it clicks closed. Push the purple plastic cover down over the #29 cartridge until it clicks closed.
  • Step 8 Close the top portion of the printer. Your new ink cartridges are installed, and your printer is ready to use.

    I cant find the ink cartrage on this printer to replace help

    I don't have your model Lexmark, but on my X4530 you have to lift the top scanning bed up, then the cartridges will settle to the middle for changing. Make sure you have the power on when you lift it, and you should see the cartridges in the middle of the printer. Good luck, hope this helps.

    How to get to cartridge to change it I can't figure how to lift top to get cartridge

    Perhaps this User Guide(for Lexmark X2450, X2470 and X2480) link to the Lexmark website will help. Just clink on this link: Scroll to Maintaining the Printer, Page 42, for changing/installing cartridges. In some cases, even when the printer is on and you lifted the scanner unit cover, somehow the cartridge carrier won't go to the center for loading position. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the scanner unit open, hold the solid white strip in the middle inside the printer. Other end of it is connected to the cartridge carrier. Slowly drag the carrier to the center for loading position. Change the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug printer back to power source. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

    Hi need to know how to open my printer and get to where i need to put the new cartridges in it i have a lexmark x1185 please help me


    The entire top of your printer lifts up. (Scanner unit.)

    Refer to this setup guide:

    Lexmark X1100 Series Setup Guide

    See steps 6 through 9.

    Once the lid is lifted, there are locking tabs on each cartridge. Squeeze and lift up. You can then lift up and out on the cartridges. Reverse the procedure to install the new cartridges.

    NOTE: Make sure the printer is ON during cartridge removal and replacement.

    Thanks for using Fixya.
