    Hey Joyce. Seriously. Its tough to fix. The only way is to replace the whole cradle via Lexmark and they are expensive. Better buy another printer. these days, a color and black in tank together costs more than a brand new printer 3 in 1 with half filled ink tanks included. Trust me. Plus you get a renewed warranty! Aha!

My lexmark x3470 wont recognise compatible ink Cartridges any know of a way round this

If the ink cartridges you purchased are not Lexmark - that could be the problem. I used to have a Lexmark printer and I did the same thing - I purchased ink cartridges that were compatible but not Lexmark brand. Everything seemed fine until I tried to print and then I would get the same error sign and low ink message and it would not print. I kept thinking I was doing something else wrong and tried everything. In the end I broke down and got ink cartridges from Lexmark and that solved the problem. Now I have a Brother printer and I never buy anything other than Brother ink cartridges because I'm always afraid of that same thing happening again. I wish I knew which printers WOULD accept those non name brand ink cartridges, but thus far I do not know of any printers that do. Hope this helps you.

Cover open is on display

put your finger on the second hole on the top from the right and press the switch (it's small, gotta try a little...), when the display changes, press copy and close the door... it just worked for me!!
good luck

After replacing ink cover displays open

never let a machine defeat you
take tape and tape down the little black lever which pops up and down (usually on left side) which triggers the nuisance error mes.
who needs a machine to tell you a lid is up?

never let a machine defeat you
