Hello, well, several users have been kind enough to offer advice regarding this problem. The only thing that really seems to work at all is slamming the cover with a bit of force. Of course, please don't use to much force here. It seems that closing the cover is supposed to trigger a mechanism that will let the printer know. Apparently this mechanism is defective on the HP photosmart. So you just need to make your point with a bit of force when closing that cover. It may take a couple of tries, but it seems to work.
