Click Properties in the title section above.

Issue description

When a user unboxes their printer, they noticed some rust on the hinges and exposed sheet metal of the automatic document feeder (ADF).


Lexmark sheet metal parts are made of electrolytic zinc-coated steel. The cut edges of the brackets do not have zinc coating due to the pre-plate nature of the steel. Therefore, the underlying steel is susceptible to oxidation. This has been an exposure since pre-plated steel was first used.


The area with rust is not functional and will not affect product performance.
