Question about HP DeskJet 5650 InkJet Printer
I get a "top cover open" drop down box when I print - I have two new cartridges in the hp 5650 color printer and the cover is a little off
- the cover seems to be a little high - is it missing a magnet - it has nothing to do with a paper jam
- even if I hold it down I still get the error how do I fix it so it prints
I had the same problem and fixed it by sticking the end of a pen (the writing part) in the hole on the right side when you open the top cover.
In other words if you open the top cover and look on the top cover you will see a tab that goes into a hole(the hole is next to the picture of the print cartridges). There is a hole with switch/tab(I don't know the proper terminology) on it that is activated when you close the top cover. If you stick the end of a pen in that hole it should activate something and the print cartridges will start to make noise and move around. You can then close the cover and it should close all the way.
You can then try to print a test page.
