Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

The lid/cover of my printer came off and the "tape" that connects it to the base of the printer came out. Can this be reconnected? if so, how do I do this?

I would like to reconnect the lid to the base of the printer. It was pulled off from the base of the printer. and the tape, which is white, with a tip of blue, was pulled away from the base and stayed with the lid cover..is it possible to reconnect this to the base, or is it unusable?

    Hi Darla Meston, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Does the printer still work? Are you sure it blue tape and not ribbon wire?

It cannot hurt to try. Normally these are press fitted into a connector, but until you look there is no way to know. Carefully disassemble to the board and see if you can press fit the ribbon cable back on and secure it. You can test to see if it will work.

It may be too far gone, but you can try if you wish. Good luck,

I have a Lexmark 3400 series printer (x3470). I have it plugged into the computer and printer. When plugged in to the printer the "Power" button is on and I have a printer message "Cover Open" however,...


first remove the bar that holds the lid up.

(1)Just pinch it together easy and it will come out of the bracket.
(2)Then remove the lid for the scanner by just lifting and pull easy
and it snaps out.
(3)At the two back hinges press on the two hold sides and pull up easy on the lid. Do one side at a time.
(4) Now check and see if the white bracket is still on the switch and if not snap it back on. Then take some tape and tape it to the housing in the close mode. It will always be in the close mode and works just fine. You do not have to take it apart just take the two lids off and replace the plastic switch back on and tape it to the housing. You do have to remove the paper back holder. It to snaps out of it holder.
Hope this helps. Make sure to unplug it first.( both connection)

Need to fix urgently lexmark x3470 cover open error. in images if possible.


open operator panel (top piece with electronic display) lift up cartridge cover (the one you lift to change cartridges) there is a small black plastic lever which you can manually move up and down with your finger (usually on left side). take a piece of tape and TAPE IT DOWN so that it can not pop up again (popping up is what triggers the error message (cover open) even when it is closed.
after you tape it down you will never see this error message again, even with the cover up.
who needs a machine to tell you a cover is open? we can SEE this with the human eye.
it is a useless feature. also, check device manager (com ports) to make sure there are no yellow explanation marks (port error) or no printer will work on it. you may have to make a change in bios to assign the port manually to make sure there are no conflicts with the port. nancynerd

Problem Powering On


Open the cover and look for a strip of plastic that the cartridges move along. BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO DISCONNECT THIS PIECE. If you can access it use a damp cloth to wipe any ink/dirt from this - DO NOT use chemicals as there are markings on this strip that are used for positioning. The slamming is caused because the printer cannot read the cartridge position.

HP Printer top cover replacement


I think your best bet is just to store the old lid away and keep the receipt that HP sent with the new lid. That way you can prove they replaced the lid and you have the old one with the sn on it to prove it.

Doc cover open


Yes there is and I know your problem have a look at the left hinge on lid that you lift to put down an original for copying, it will be breaking apart, the switch is black in that same corner on doc feeder base, as the hinge breaks apart the doc feed lifts in that corner causing "doc cover open" cause that switch no longer gets pushed in when lid is shut

Dodgy repair - tape switch closed, but doc feeder will not work properly/can use glass.

Repair - Easy removal of three screws and replacing 20buck hinge bought from brother dealer...part no.LE8731001 Hinge assy left.

Now that's FIXYA!
