1If a network card has been installed, you may need to remove it before installing the flash memory or firmware card.
2Use the image below to locate the two flash memory and firmware card connectors (labeled 1 and 2 in the image).

If the Card Will Not Go In Completely

1I f the card starts to go into the slot but will not go in all the way, try it in the other slot (if that slot is empty).
2If the card will not fit into either slot, verify that it is designed for this model of Lexmark printer. Flash memory or firmware cards designed for other Lexmark printer models may not work with this printer.
3If it is a Lexmark card, there may be an obstruction behind the system board that is preventing the card from being fully installed. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support. See Additional Assistance below.

Additional Assistance

If you require additional assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support or a local authorized service center.
When calling Lexmark Technical Support for service, you will need to know your xref_HO2749_xref. Please call from near the printer in case the technician asks you to perform a task involving the printer.
