SOURCE: how do i remove an ink cartridge from lexmark x3470

Power on your printer and lift the cartridge door on the top of your printer. The ink cartridges will move automatically to the center. When they stop, pull the ink cartridge towards you and up to remove it. Then, take the new ink cartridge, remove all the plastic covers and place it in the printer. Then close the cartridge door and you are ready to print again.

Cover tab broken on Lexmark X3470

Have you recovered the tab? All the tab does is interrupt a sensor beam between 2 points. Either glue it back on (epoxy or super glue, use sparingly on one side then apply and hold down until it sets, about a min. or tape a popsicle stick into the area where the tab rested. First feel around with the stick in the area until the printer responds. then fix it there.

There is a plastic lever in the back of the scanner where it comes into contact with a part made to push the lever when closed to work the switch. It is a poor design. The lever fits over the small micro-switch very loosly and the tabs wear out really quick. Lexmark will not send another lever. They state buy another printer. If you are real careful, you can put the lever back on the switch and hold it in place while you close the lid.
