I too have this issue only with the scanner. After it scans I open the lid to put in another picture and it thinks I opened the cover and it takes a minute to cycle the cartridges and warm up the scanner again. What gives?

Lexmark x4550 installed new cartridge a lexmark cartridge I keep getting alignment error. Take the tape off. There is no tape to take off since I already took it off. How can I fix this problem?

The problem could be due to a communication failure between one of the printheads (cartridges) and the All-In One (AIO) or by a short in one if the printheads. Please follow the steps below to identify and fix cartridge issues:

  1. Make sure the printer is on.
  2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-In-One is busy. Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer or unplug the printer from the power source and then carefully slide the carrier to the center.
  3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  7. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
  8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

I have a paper jam in the printer lexmark x4550 and don't know how to get to it

If you're having trouble getting the paper jam from the feeder, you can open the cartridge area. You should be able to get a better hold of jammed paper out from there.

I have a lexmark x4550. It keeps saying "Cover OPen" and its closed

Error 30 Top Cover Open or Print Cartridge Missing Make sure the spring-mounted pin on the print head shroud is installed properly and that it is detected by the ramp on the print cartridge as the cover closes. The pin should enter the tower on the HVPS and depress the cover switch.

Different printer, similar issue. May help.
