First ensure you removed the cellotape strip from the toner cartridge, may seem stupid but sometimes this can give you same problem.

Do the following:

Remove tober cartridge.
Unplug power cord.
Wait ten minutes.
Plug back.
Open the printer and insert toner.
Ensure toner is well fit inside, and that there is no paper fragment inside the printer.
Keep power button pressed ten seconds if it does not accept the toner.
Also try unplugging power again for ten minutes.

I think the sensor has failed

and you will have to replace the sensor to get it back working

    in the machine, the lever assembly that trips the optical sensor will have
    moved laterally to the left (when viewing the machine from the back),
    preventing it from tripping the sensor when everything was closed. you will have to release the black guide plate (there is a light grey tab on the
    right end keeping it from dropping down fully that will need to be
    released to allow the guide plate to drop down. Then you will see the
    lever assembly now on top of the plate that is used to trip the sensor.
    This assembly has a lever on the left end as well at roughly the center
    of the machine. Along the rod that connects the levers together, there
    is a third lever that should be down in a slot in the black guide
    plate. in the machine, this lever was not in the slot, but to its left.
    Once you move this lever into the slot, the whole assembly will be oriented
    laterally in the correct manner, and once the guide plate will be replaced
    and when the back cover closed, the error message will disappear


  • dewan nafees ahmed Oct 15, 2008

    It is not the back cover but the black guide inside the back cover.
    Looking
    from the back of the machine you will see a black guide plate that
    moves back and forward as you close the back cover now on the right
    hand side there is a lever that when closed(the guide)will go through
    an optical sensor to tell m/c its closed.Make sure the lever is still
    there and going through the sensor.
    Hope this helps

    Sometimes paper is jammed inside the black plastic inner chute and you can not see
    it. If you find paper wrapped around the orange roller do not try to
    remove it. You will want to check with Brother and find out if the unit
    is in warranty.

Back cover open message although cover is closed


Open the top and back covers. If you see any jammed paper or
other item, gently pull it out, then close the covers. If the error message
remains, open and close the covers again. If the FAX/MFC cannot reset
itself and return to the date and time prompt, it will display MACHINE
ERROR XX. Please call Brother Customer Service
and tell them the Machine Error number at:

Back Cover Open Close The Back Cover Is Message I'm getting. What is the Problem?


Open the front cover and remove the drum and toner(cartridge).

There should be a paperjam in the machine. It reads back cover open because the piece of paper is covering the sensor for the back cover.

Brother (photocopier, fax and scanner machine) says << back cover open. close back cover>> but the back cover (or at least what i think is the back cover) is closed. I even opened and closed it...


I have fixed this problem on my 7820n printer by brother.

open the back door, then inside there will be a black colored other kind of like door that pulls back away from the roller. on this inner door is a black long thin plastic lever that runs from about the center of the inner door to the right. on the right end of it is a lever that slides along a curved increase on the right side wall. when both doors are closed this right end of the rod or lever moves up to close the gap between what is the sensor. this long thin plastic rod had snapped out of place and when i snapped it back in making sure the spring was correctly installed on the left end of it and the middle part of the rod slid correctly in its groove...the right end of the lever correctly closed the gap on the sensor (when both doors are closed) and the back door open error went away.

So that's how you really fix it!!!!

Hp 7410 officejet all in one


--close cover ---means the lower base of the printer is open the cover you open when to remove or insert the cartridges.that is not related to copy or scan cover which is above that.just close the lower covwer little bit tightly.apply gentle force or push to make it close properly.
do it carefully.

thanks.

Check Cover/Cart Message -


if you open the front cover, there is a little white sensor you can see through a slot to the left. this is the sensor for the cover, i just fixed a machine where that little sensor was stuck down to the cover wasn't pushing it in correctly.

Error message-Close the back cover


It appears that you have a broken back door have a look on the door to see if there is a broken piece of plastic as when you shut the rear door a tab pushes against a push switch letting the machine know that the door is closed. if you cannot see a broken piece then the switch it faulty try this by push a flat screw driver on the switch and check if the message disappears.

Thanks J
