Most likely you should check the 'door open switch', probably its broken.

My lexmark z1320 will not switch on right. the light just keeps flashing and my computer not picking up device. it was working 24hrs before and no one has used it since. can you please tell me what the...


The flashing of the lights could mean paper jam, alignment problem, ink level low warning. Try to disconnect the printer from your computer. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, open the printer cover and reinsert the cartridges. Close the printer cover. Reconnect the printer into your computer. Make sure ink levels are substantial for printing. Try to print again.

My printer keeps telling me that i have a system error. Remover paper jam then press start but nothing happens. Help


Where does this "system error" message appear? On your printer display or on your computer screen? Try to remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to reset itself. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges. Then load some paper. Try to print again and see if the error appears again.

Keeps telling me to close upper side panel but nothing is open? we moved copier to onther location and now on the led screen it reads close upper side panel but I cant see anything open and it wont copy


I presume you have removed and reinstalled the upper side panel ... ???

Make sure all the levers and switches that are suppose to tell the copier that the panel is closed are closed.

If you have enough fingers, you might try to close all those switches manually. Secondly, you can test those switches if you can access them.

Otherwise, it is time to call the copier guy to fix.

Cover open message and there are no covers open


On Many of these printers, when you recieve this message chances are you either have a "BENT" limit switch sensor or the Tap on the Cover is "Broken or Broke off",
First Step open each cover and close them again sometimes the limit switch isn't being hit correctly by the door Tab

Second- as you open the covers their are tabs that must hit these sensors- make sure their not broken or bent.

Start their and tell me if these resolves the problem chance are the tabs are not hitting the switches correctly and not telling the samsung printer that the covers are closed.

The Error says "Cover Open Front" but it is not open


Most printers have a plastic pin on all of the covers that pushes a switch when it is closed. This then sends a signal to the printer telling it "I'm closed".

Probably the pin is broken off (quite by accident I'm sure). A solution is to push a piece of paper in the hole where the pin is, closing the switch, to fool the printer into thinking that the cover is closed. You can try this by pushing a pen point into the hole to see if the message goes out. (Don't forget to remove the paper when you open the cover. The switch is there to keep things out of the mechanism while it is running. May not hurt you but will damage the printer mechanics irreparably.)

Anything else is an error with the printer software and processor and can't be fixed easily.

My printer keeps saying Cover Open and won't let me do anything else


Hi All printers have a protruding piece of plastic on the cover / lid, when out of place it tells the printer the cover is open

When you close lid it is inserted into main frame which tells the printer that the lid is closed.

Look for this it may be damaged. If so roll a small piece of paper and insert ito the recepticle hole.

It will trick printer that the lid is now closed.

You will need to remove it each time you need to change inks etc...

Good Luck!
