Printhead error

A firmware update for your model addresses the "printhead error" on your printer. First, get rid of error message on the display screen to successfully update your printer firmware.Open the cover to remove the printhead and tanks (if installed). Note: Carrier will come to the center automatically with this error message as the cover is opened.
Then proceed with the firmware update. Please visit the Lexmark website at to download and install the firmware update.
Should you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact Lexmark Technical Support Center.

My printer keeps telling me that i have a system error. Remover paper jam then press start but nothing happens. Help

Where does this "system error" message appear? On your printer display or on your computer screen? Try to remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to reset itself. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges. Then load some paper. Try to print again and see if the error appears again.

The printer (Lexmark X5340) display "cover open"

Short of slamming the cover closed there is a small tab that tells if it is open or closed. It should be located on the lower right hand corner. Once you find it just put a small piece of paper there or plastic and you should have no more problems.

How i remove the inkjet from the printer

Here's the link to the Lexmark website on how to view the Lexmark Z645 printer User's Guide on your computer. You might want to scroll down to Maintenance or Maintaining the printer for the instructions on how to replace the cartridges. If you won't be able to view it, try the steps below.
Make sure the printer is on. Lift the cover open. When the carrier positions itself in the center, open the latch. Reload new cartridges then close the cover.
In some cases, the ink cartridge carrier won't position itself in the middle even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Just unplug the printer from the power source. With the cover open, hold the white tape in the middle inside the printer. The other end of it is connected to the carrier. Gently slide the carrier to the center. Load the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug the printer back to power source. Hope this helps.
Leave a comment if you still need more assistance. Thanks.

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.

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.

Error mesage

No solution, but I have the same problem. THe printer starts up fine, I hear no grinding noises or other "funny" nioses, and then displays no error message... UNTIL I ask it to print. Then I get a message that says, "Pls (please) Open Cover".

I open the cover and it says "Please Close Cover".

I close the cover and it says, "Please Open Cover"

and this happens forever!

Does anyone have any ideas? Can anyone help me?
