Question about HP Photosmart D5160 InkJet Printer
Hi, Have had the same problem with my HP Photosmart and wondering if you were able to get the "cover open" red light flashing problem resolved since you posted 2 months before me.
It works darnest thing one little hard close on the cover.

I had to unplug the printer for a couple of minutes to let it reset and then dropped the cover 3 times and it started to work again.

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.
Hope that helps!
