How to Disassemble a Lexmark X2550

Updated April 17, 2017

The X2550 is a flatbed compact all-in-one printer developed and marketed by Lexmark. The X2550 is currently discontinued. The printer functions as a scanner, printer and copier. You may occasionally encounter issues with the printer, including paper jams, dry ink cartridges and paper tray malfunctions. You can disassemble the printer to troubleshoot some of the issues. However, note that your manufacturer's warranty will be void when you open the printer.

Unplug the Lexmark printer from its power source.

Lift the scanning lid with your hand. Locate the screws that hold the lid at the hinges. Use a Phillips screwdriver to unscrew the lid.

Lift the scanner compartment to reveal the ink cartridges. Gently pull out the black and tricolour cartridges from the compartment.

Locate the hinges on either side of the printer that hold the scanner compartment with the rest of the printer. Use your Phillips screwdriver to unscrew the hinges and take the top cover apart.

Pull out the paper trays from the bottom. The paper trays should come out without unscrewing any hinges.
