Thats an interlock switch, you can fold a piece of paper into a one inch long piece and then stick it in th "plug" this will over ride the switch, you probably have broken the plastic piece that is located on the cover that tells the printer that the cover is closed.

I keep getting "check and rethread the upper thread" error message


Hi....I also kept getting the check and rethread upper thread message, I\'d sew about 15 stitches and it\'d stop. Here\'s what I did. On the left of the machine, in the back there is a screw....loosen that screw, take cover off, then lift straigt up and out on the cover that has the 3 on it in your threading seqence. Next, I started inspecting and cleaning the thread route from top to bottom. Lo and behold....I get to the place where you come down the front of the machine and turn to go back up and I spot a little slit in the plastic piece so, when I was threading the machine I guess I was pulling it to far to the left causing it to wear a little slit in that piece....so, I finished cutting it off with a utility knife, used an emery board to smooth it down, put the covers back on and it works GREAT!!!! Who would\'ve ever that it\'d be so easy and save me a bunch of money!!! I sure hope this helps someone.

I have brother mfc 8440 left hinge was broke. i replaced it . noe error message . check oringal message is comming


Most of the time a door has a sensor on it or on the hinge that senses when the door is opened and closed. It looks like a little flag that passed between two sensors. Some times that flag is broken off or not passing directly between those two senors. Check around the hinge that you replaced for one of these.

ImageCLASS 2300 not printing, check printer cover message


Had the same problem spent 2 hours opening and closing everything trying to reset turn off and on etc. Here is how I fixed it, slammed all the doors on left side starting with above cartridge to cartridge door and 2 little doors by paper hard - and I mean hard - and whammo error cleared immediately. Sensors that check for open door obviously stick and report they are open when they are really closed. I am sure this saved me an expensive service call.

Why is this tekronix 860 printer kept flashing error message saying missing upper tray. However, all trays are intact. It looks like a sensor issue


Tektronix printer paper trays, I seem to recall that there's a plastic key that fits on the right side of the paper tray. It's a little plastic piece that just clips in on the right side of the paper tray. Sounds like it's missing

Samsung CLP-300 - Cover Open error message, but covers are closed


Front cover is on the right hand side, back is on the left hand side in the middle, and the top cover is like a little button on top. All the others are little openings.

Broken battery compartment door switch


The switch is a micro switch that is depressed(and not sad :)) by a plastic tag moulded on the battery cover. Once the cover is moved into position and closed, the tag presses on the micro switch closing the switch and thus removing the error message. As with any switch, a switch is simply open or closed, Open = high resistance or O/L, while closed = 0 ohms reistance. You can use a small wire to overcome the switch by soldering the wire to both tags of the switch so it is permenantly 0 ohms. This will send a message to the microprocessor that cover is closed and camera ready for use. Hope this helps.

MFC-7820N error message: back cover open; close back cover. The back cover is closed but error message will not go away and I can not print. Thank you.


There is a little black lever in the middle that needs to be re inserted properly. (like a little black stick in the middle.  Needs to slide to the left or right.   See more of this one the site.   It solved it for me.

Brother MFC 7820N error message "back cover open" but cover is closed. machine is now not functional as error message can't be removed


If you open the back cover (depress the release button on the top right) If you lift it up look for two black anchors that grab the base when you close the lid. I have one that has a broken tab on the left side, which happens to be the same side as the cover closed switch. If the top is not closed all the way the rollers do not line up and the cover switch is not depressed to let normal operation. Also, if the switch arm is busted (case colored plastic push pin protruding from the cover) it will not make contact with the switch when closed. Try closing the cover and push down on left side of the fax. Does the error go away? If not, the actuator arm or the switch are bad.

I had the same problem with mine. Lift the top scanner, and check the hinges on the left. That error message means that the little black sensor on the left next to the hinges is not meeting flat with the unit when closed. Hold the sensor in for a few seconds, and your printer will start working properly.
