My mp600 keeps saying close inner cover-which is closed

My printer is new. It worked for a short time and then wouldn't recognize the yellow ink cartdrige. Put in new yellow ink, now the printer has error message that says the INNER COVER IS OPEN-PLEASE CLOSE INNER COVER and press ok to continue." The cover is closed and I can't get the printer to print or the error to go away.

I had the same issue, turning off didn't solve it.
There's a plastic flap the width of the print tray just inside that I flipped up and it solved this problem. It is directly in front of the ink tanks. I'm assuming we flipped it down and forgot about it. It seems it needs to stay up, although you wouldn't notice it when it flips down when you close the top, as it closes just fine with it down. It's easy to overlook. This took me a few hours to realize.

The top of the flap has a half circle cut out of it in the middle.

    More instructions - when you get to the link above, search for "inner cover open", then click on "Close the inner cover", and it shows you where it is.

  1. Have you tried turning the printer on/off?
  2. Did you replace the cartridges with the power on or off? Most printers require you to replace them with the power on.
  3. Try replacing the new one with the old ones. Do you get the same display?
  4. On the printer, is there an alignment button?

Good luck!

MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043


I had the same problem. My mp630 is also only 4 months old. I replaced all colour ink cartrdiges(inc black), but was only able to release the function for detecting the ink levels for magenta and cyan. Yellow and black then started giving error message U043, with them alternating between working, but never working at the same time. Getting them all clicked in with the lights glowing red does not solve the problem, as once the printer cover is closed, the same error message turns up. The only thing that worked for me is moving the chip slightly out of alignment, by pushing the sliding chip holder, and I only had to do this twice before they all started working and the printer was unlocked.

Hi, please try reseating the print head.

*Remove all ink tanks.

*Raise the print head lock lever and remove the print head.

*Re-seat the print head into the print head holder and lower the print head lock lever until a click is heard.

*Insert the appropriate ink tank into the slot at the right end and push down on the PUSH mark on top of the ink tank until a click is heard. Install the other ink tanks in the same manner.

*Close the inner cover and top cover.
Note: Check that each ink tank is installed in the correct position.

If issue still present call your printer manufacturer for service.

Canon MP600 printer


sounds like the inner cover is not seating properly. so, perhaps there is something amiss inside, making that cover not latch cleanly? do a visual inspection(got one of those dental type mirrors?).

MP600 - Says inside cover is open - but it's not!


This is a hardware problem nothing to do with software; somewhere inside the printer a cover is not closed correctly.
