Printer Lexmark x3470 showing "Cover open" / "Cub abierta" while closed,...


Hi
This is a common fail in this model. there is a white plastic arm which works as an extender for the switch that senses if the cover is open or closed. This part is easily detached from its place (in my case not broken but it could happen I suppose) resulting in printer showing the message "Cover open" / "Cub abierta". the switch is situated under the scanner in the middle . when you lift the scanner part to see the ink cartridge, you see a plastic part underneath between the hinges that looks like a 2/3 of a circle that is the part that pushes the switch. 
You should open the printers gut and place the loose part back in place. Be ware that flat cables' contact ends could easily brake! use precaution!

(if you shake your printer you may hear the sound of the lose part).

Happy solving problems!

Long thin plastic piece fell out of Lexmark Z33


Google your printer, try pcappliancerepair.com. This item goes from one side of your printer to the other, passing through the cartridges holder. Look for the places it attaches. You may have to move the cartridge holder to the center to install the plastic.

Printer will not print or shut down


reset memory; unplug; plug back in while HOLDING DOWN STOP KEY. This resets/clears memory

tape down the little black plastic lever (usually on left side) so it can't pop back up which causes it to invoke error message "cover open" and "cover closed" who needs a machine to tell a cover is open?

Rx tray full remove paper


That is an easy one.
Look into the area where the paper comes out. You have to look toward the upper rear area rear area. There is a white plastic flag, about 2 inches wide and 1 inch in height.
On each side of it you will see 2 areas where the shaft snaps into, that flag has popped out of those clips and is not seeing the sensor making the machine think there is a piece of paper in the output tray.
Reach in and gently maneuver that back into position and carefully snap it back into place.
That is an odd shaped actuator you can't see, but with some patience you can snap it back into place. Maybe also gently take a pair of needle nose pliers and slightly tighten those clips that it snaps into. I suggest that with a lot of concern so that you do not snap the plastic clips, they are part of the frame that if broken would be expensive to replace. Use your discretion as to whether they need to be tightened. If it snaps back in and feels solid DO NOT try to tighten them please.

Cover open


This is because the white plastic rocker switch which is very poorly attached to the micro switch at the back of the unit has become dislodged which means the micro switch is permanently open. Unfortunately due to its very poor design it has probably lost its plastic lugs which keep it attached to the micro switch.

Solution:
Locate the dislodged rocker switch, you may have to turn the printer upside down and shake it. If it won't come out, shake it after removing the cover...

If the plastic lugs are still in place then you are lucky. You will need to get inside the unit to refit it...

Open the unit as if you were about to replace the ink. Unclip the plastic prop at the top; you can pinch it using a pair of pliers. The cover will now hinge up much further, there is some minor friction still but it will come up to 90 degrees with a gentle tug.

It will now easily lift away from the hinges on the main body. You can remove the ribbon leads if you like. They go back again very easily.

You should now be able to get your fingers inside the unit. You will need a flat blade screw driver to assist you refitting the rocker. You should feel it clip into place if the plastic lugs are in place, even if they are worn. Test it and check it won’t fall off again easily.

It is much more likely that it will fall off again as the lugs have worn away.

This can be fixed by heating a medium sized paper clip with a lighter and pushing it through the side of the rocker, in the same location as the lugs. Cut the paper clip with the pliers, this will leave a 2-3mm pin sticking through the side of the rocker. Do this for both sides. Resite the rocker, then using a flat blade screw driver push the pins into the holes on the black micro switch. This should be quite easy as the rocker will still site in the correct position even if they are missing.

You will now have a fully functioning switch which will be far stronger than the original design.

Put everything back together, and test it.

Either the cartridge didn't get seated properly or a tab on the door that pushes a hidden micro-switch is broken off, not aligned correctly or obstructed from going in to the slot. The tab is a non-assuming plastic tab that lines up with a hole in the housing. "If" it is broken, bend down the center of a paper clip to form a "T" and insert it into the hole. The "T" shape will keep it form falling through. You may have to tape it into place. This is a safety feature to keep you from reaching in while it is printing or about to start. So remove it before doing any maintanence.
