Question about Lexmark X1195 All-In-One Printer
Really would appreciate a little help. I opened the printer to change cartridge then I pushed it back down to close it a little too hard and a small white piece has fell off inside. I now cant use the printer because it says the printer is not closed although it does close. I have opened the printer up and found the piece which is about 3 cm long and half a cm wide. Obviously it is a clip that connects somewhere. Do you have any ideas for me. Seems simple but can't figure it out. darrrrrrrrr

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.

as stated i have a mac apple laptop. I have safari as my program so I do not have start or control panel. I do have a system preference icon which gets me to printers and faxes. when in printer and faxes it states that my lexmark already is my default printer. CONFUSED

On an X4850 the whole top of the printer opens up to reveal the cartridge carriers. Press down on the latch of each side to reveal the cartridges.
Here is a link to the User guide: X4850 User Guide It is described on page 94.

Try and replicate the shape of the piece that is broken off,
If it is a straight edge a piece of wide transparent tape could do.
Other shapes can be made with the use of epoxy type putty.
this material is available at you plumbers store.it is sold as 2 separate products thatis sift and malleable when separate.
but by combining the pieces, they will gradually get as hard as metal. it is quite inexpensive.
If you use a piece after you have molded then together. Shape the part that is missing on the printer case.
then firmly put it in place after 24 hours. if it hold. it should be as good as teh original piece, for a long time.
You can also use automobile radiator putty. it si made of the same materiels too and work as well.
How did you break that piece anyway??
