As a work around try installing Windows fax and scan and using that program to scan your items - I have multiple printers and it works great for me

You didn't install d drivers properly. Do it over and
you'll see the difference. It says that because its looking for the root folder for the printer but since its not installed properly it can't find the folder.

Pull the power cord to the printer!
Take the paper lid out!
Check inside for jammed paper or other stuff!
Grab the paper with both hands and slowly drag it out whit out taring it!
When everything is clear! put the tray back in and plug in the power cord!
Restart and test to print something!
I hope it helps :)

With the help of google here is your answer

Your arm of cover sensor has fallen off'

It is the switch fallen to bits

This switch

THis bit falls off

How yours looks

How it should be, or can be if you put it together again.

It might be possible to snap the part back on without partial disassembly, or simply shove something in there to hold the sensor in the 'closed' possition (If you lose a finger or two using this method, don't blame me)







The lid sensor is a tiny microswitch that is on the main circuit board...there is a white nylon lever arm snapped onto the switch.

if the lever arm falls off (like mine did) the 'cover open' error will last forever.

This may (or may not) be possible do fix without some disassembly. This lever arm should stick up through a rectangular hole that's approximately 1/2" to the right of the print head (assuming print head is parked in the middle) and behind it.

Most likely if your lever arm has fallen off, shaking the printer gently upside down with the cover open will allow it to fall out.

Now if you are a dentist or a surgeon, snapping the lever bit back on is no problem without taking anything apart.

I am neither. For the brave (of foolish) ones who like to do surgery, here goes. Here's how I took mine apart....if yours breaks into a million bits, don't blame me.

0) unplug the power and take the scanner cover off.

1) release the 'kickstand' from the scanner by prying and squeezing it with pliers until the two prongs pop out (or crack and break)

2) detach the scanner hinges by prying/squeezing with pliers until they pop off (or crack and break). (CAUTION: read step 3 below first...don't just yank the scanner off without reading step 3)

3) Carefully unplug ribbon cable and other connector to scanner and set scanner aside.

4) remove screws at front of beige plastic part....pry at the back carefully and this will pop off....sending the screws flying if you left them loose in their little wells. Don't worry, there are only two of them that really do anything anyway.

5) Look towards the rear of the printer and you will see the circuit board and the 'hole' where you can see the sensor, and possibly your white nylon lever arm lying pathetically down in the bowels of the printer.

6) Retrieve and Carefully snap the nylon lever arm back on, and think nasty thoughts about the brainiac who designed that part.

reverse the above steps. Put at least most of the screws back in, or the front panel may fall off at a later date.

Take care to GENTLY plug the ribbon cable and the other scanner connector back in, making sure it's seated all the way. Try not to bend or kink the end of it, or it will be toast.

Good luck, and happy lexmarking.....

There is a sensor which sense paper jam. Due to dust, paper piece this problem may occur. Try to clean printer with vacuum cleaner.

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.

It's gonna be a bit hard to walk you through with this problem I would suggest you to contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.

If you are encountering power problems with your printer, please go through the following checklist:

  • Make sure the power cord is plugged in securely and directly to the power outlet. Power surge protectors can draw power away from the printer.
  • Disconnect the power cord from the power outlet and the back of the printer and then reconnect it.
  • Check the power supply box (if there is one) to see if it is warm or cold, as there could be a defective power supply issue.
  • If there is access to a voltmeter, test the power supply to ensure that it registering the correct amount of voltage (most Lexmark printers have a 30Volt output).
  • Make sure the correct power supply is connected to the printer.
Should the problem continue, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for further assistance.

Try to follow the steps below to determine what is causing the problem and fix the issue:

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.

Let me know if this helps.
