Hp deskjet printer 6840 wont print .keeps on saying top cover is open when it is actually closed.


Pop off the right side cover - it is just held with clips. At the hinge, you will see that the cover switch arm that is supposed to move up and down as the cover opens & closes (in the slot in the geared hinge) is probably broken off. It is in the up position when the lid is closed, and down when the lid is open. I cut the shaft of a Q-tip to length and wedged it into the space to keep the cover switch up all of the time and still allow free movement of the lid.

When I try to change my ink cartriges the carriage will not move


With the lid open, you will see the two arms that stick out of the lid, and go into the body of the printer, they are black. and on the far left and right of each side of the lid. They have Teeth on them like a saw. When the lid is closed, these go down into the printer, and hit a little micro button on the back of the printer. When this button is pressed, the printer knows that the lid is closed. I am guessing that this button has gone bad, so the printer does not know you have opened the lid, and therefore it does not move the print cartridges into the parked posistion.

Print Access Door?


Dis you put any packaging in the printer to protect it? Just make sure that there is nothing unusual under the lid.

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!

Replace ink cartridge


1 Make sure the printer is on.
2 Lift the scanner unit until the scanner support keeps it open.
The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position.
3 Squeeze the tabs on the cartridge lids, and then lift the lids.
4 Remove the old cartridges.
5 Remove the stickers and transparent tape from the bottom of the cartridges.
6 Insert the new cartridge. Make sure the color print cartridge is
secure in the left carrier and then snap the lid closed.
If you are installing a black print cartridge, make sure that it is
secure in the right carrier, and then snap the lid closed.
7 Lift the scanner unit and push the scanner support back while
lowering the scanner unit until it is completely closed.

Printer cover open error message


I had that problem too.

Unplug the printer.
Hold the printer cover open while you plug in the printer.
Then wait for the printer to power on while still holding the cover open.
Then close the cover.
The buttons should work and th error message should be gone.

It worked for me.
