Question about Lexmark Fax Machines
There is an interlock switch or sensor on all the covers. You need to open the cover and look for an opening in the cover it closes against. In those openings there are normally switches that a tab turns on to let the machine know the cover is closed.
The switch may have become dislodged, or more likely, the tab on the cover that hits the switch to actuate it has broken off and is not hitting the switch giving you that message.
