Question about Lexmark X3480 All-In-One Printer
I changed the print cartridge and when i closed the cover i got the message COVER OPEN also it the printer canot be switched off
DyAnna, Chesapeake, VA: I have had my X3480 for over a year and had to change the cartridge for the first time. I still have an old Pentium II with a perfectly swell HP printer, that I am getting ready to update. Anyway, the same thing happened when I changed my cartridge and while pulling up and reading your solution solvers, say 15 minutes or so, I heard the printer cartridge finally move to the middle, the "cover open" disappeared and the "copies 1" appeared. So maybe, one more solution is to walk away for 15 min. to an hour, if you have that much time to kill. This worked for me, thank goodness, because my patience have not been very good, so I contributed it to living right. Whoever comes up with this problem for the first time, try it and see what you get. Good Luck.

There is a plastic lever for the micro switch on the rear of the internals. You have to remove the top potion of the printer which is the scanner. If your lucky , shake the printer a bit and the plastic switch will fall out. Insert back the plastic lever on the microswitch with the pointed tip facing up.

I had same prob this week after I changed the cartridge. At the back of the lid when open you'll see a plastic curved piece like an upturned sharks fin near the right side lid hinge. When the lid is closed this presses on a white plastic piece which in turn closes a very small black switch. The white plastic piece usually falls off and the isolating switch remains on so causing the prob. I turned the printer upside down and the loose white piece fell out. I couldn't refit it even after removing the paper guide tray so I jammed a piece of my son's pencil rubber into the gap instead so it keeps the switch pressed down and this fixed it.
