Question about Lexmark X502N All-In-One Laser Printer
Have a Lexmark x502n with a "Warning: CPU fan is locked" error. From reading the website, it appears that you can simply buy a FD245010MB fan from CyPower to replace the broken fan. What process is involved in actually changing over the fan?
You'll need to remove the panel just above the power switch. Two screws does as I recall. Also you'll need to buy connectors for the fan because it comes with bare wires.
After hours of searching I found the right connectors for the fan since it comes with bare wires when ordered from www.cypower.com. The connectors are from JST America and can be ordered from www.digikey.com.
Part 455-1126-ND (housing that takes pins spaced 2mm apart)
Part 455-2148-1-ND (pins)
You have to order at least 10 housings and 100 pins but all of that costs about $2.50.
You can also order the crimp tool but that costs $1,300. I'll just use a needle nose pliers.

Yes sir, Make sure its the same Voltage/Amperage, connector style, hole configuration where it screws into the frame. Looks like on this printer the fan is on the right side? Just a guess. If so, power off the printer, remove the cover and remember how the fan looks now so you can put it on the same way. I mean make sure of the air direction, etc. A 2 wire connector that you can find by following the wires to the engine board and remember, again, where and how it was plugged in. Also, if you can download the lexmark service manual PDF, its pretty clear as far as locations and part numbers and such.
