To install the pick roller assembly, hold the paper flag down out of the way as shown in Image 5a. This is especially important on input options because less room exists in this area.

Note: When installing the pick roller assembly, avoid all contact with the roller surfaces, or paper jams might result.

Important! Failure to keep the flag out of the way while installing may result in the flag being broken off or trapped under the pick assembly, as shown in Image 5b, and the printer will not pick paper properly.

If you are having difficulties doing the replacement, please contact Lexmark Technical Support.
