Cover open lexmark3480


It could be that one of the cartridges is not seated properly in the cartridge carrier. Please try this approach to fix the problem.

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/unplug the printer from the power source and then slide the carrier to the center.

3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.

4. Close the printer cover.

5. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.

7. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.

8. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.

9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge. Then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

WILL NOT CONNECT TO PRINTER. TRIED UNINSTALLING IN ORDER TO REINSTALL BUT MY SYSTEM WILL NOT UNINSTALL THE SOFTWARE. REPEATED ATTEMPTS AT UNINSTALLING ARE PROBABLY CORRUPTING THE SOFTWARE SO NEED HELP IN...


Since you try to uninstall and reinstall the printer software, do you set up again the printer and try to print again the test page.

Most printer if it is not responding is it due to connection error like cable set up, port driver set up or the configuration of the printer or the print spooler had stop.

Please try hard reset of the printer.

  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Open the top cover of the printer and remove the print cartridges.
  3. Close the top cover of the printer.
  4. Press the power button on the printer to turn the printer off.
  5. Disconnect the communications, (USB or Parallel), cable from the back of the printer.
  6. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer for one minute.
  7. Reconnect the communications cable to the printer.
  8. Reconnect the power cable to the printer.
  9. Press the printer power button to turn the printer on.
  10. Open the top cover and reinsert the print cartridges.
  11. Close the top cover and print the calibration page.
  12. Restart the computer.
