The transfer belt is located inisde the printer and is what moves the paper back out the printer. You will need to open the back cover of the unit then you will lift the top part of the printer off. This will expose the transfer belt. There is a bracket holding the transfer belt with two screws that will need to be removed. Then two more screws that are holding the belt assembly in place. Once those are removed then you can slide out the transfer belt assembly. The new replacement transfer belt assembly will slide back in replacing the old one. Then repeat the steps opposite to install. Then remove the four spacers on the new belt(on each corner). Then you will reset the counter for the belt and will need to run the printer alignment settings.

I have replaced my Lexmark X500 transfer belt but I cannot reset it to get the replacement message to go away and the maintenance page still shows the transfer belt as out.

Please try to check if the transfer belt is properly installed. Turn off the printer for at least about 30 seconds.
If you need further assistance please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center.
