"cover open" when the cover is closed! I just


You have a new printer and one with a defect. Since this is a brand new printer and after it is made sure that your installation procedure was done correctly, the fault can be due to a damaged door detectlimit switch.
Finally you remove the printer from the PC, open programs and uninstall the drivers. Now restart and install the drivers, connect the printer ONLY WHEN PROMPTED.
Now check the functions and if the fault has not cleared, you MUST report the matter to the dealer or the support site to get free replacement.

Hp deskjet printer 6840 wont print .keeps on saying top cover is open when it is actually closed.


Pop off the right side cover - it is just held with clips. At the hinge, you will see that the cover switch arm that is supposed to move up and down as the cover opens & closes (in the slot in the geared hinge) is probably broken off. It is in the up position when the lid is closed, and down when the lid is open. I cut the shaft of a Q-tip to length and wedged it into the space to keep the cover switch up all of the time and still allow free movement of the lid.

Printer says pen cover is open...it's not. Could it be worn out?


I've just had the same problem! I solved it by 'fooling' the printer into thinking the cover was closed - with the cover open, I used a nail file to gently depress the black tab on the top right side, as if the cover was down. I printed a doc while doing this and it worked! Once I released it, the printer continued as normal. Not very scientific but it worked for me!!

The Error says "Cover Open Front" but it is not open


Most printers have a plastic pin on all of the covers that pushes a switch when it is closed. This then sends a signal to the printer telling it "I'm closed".

Probably the pin is broken off (quite by accident I'm sure). A solution is to push a piece of paper in the hole where the pin is, closing the switch, to fool the printer into thinking that the cover is closed. You can try this by pushing a pen point into the hole to see if the message goes out. (Don't forget to remove the paper when you open the cover. The switch is there to keep things out of the mechanism while it is running. May not hurt you but will damage the printer mechanics irreparably.)

Anything else is an error with the printer software and processor and can't be fixed easily.

My printer keeps saying Cover Open and won't let me do anything else


Hi All printers have a protruding piece of plastic on the cover / lid, when out of place it tells the printer the cover is open

When you close lid it is inserted into main frame which tells the printer that the lid is closed.

Look for this it may be damaged. If so roll a small piece of paper and insert ito the recepticle hole.

It will trick printer that the lid is now closed.

You will need to remove it each time you need to change inks etc...

Good Luck!

Printer cover open error message


I had that problem too.

Unplug the printer.
Hold the printer cover open while you plug in the printer.
Then wait for the printer to power on while still holding the cover open.
Then close the cover.
The buttons should work and th error message should be gone.

It worked for me.
