Re: back cover open error message
When a jam is removed from the rear section (fuser/exit) the sensor arm (small plastic arm the sticks up) pops out of place. You need to relocate the arm mechanism so when you hit the arm (located in the centre of the black plate that comes down) so it springs back up.
Common problem in this style of machine. I can send some diagrams to help if required but may take me a couple of weeks as I'm on holidays at the moment.

The message that you're getting means that either the back cover is not closed securely or there's a jammed paper inside. Here's what you can do to clear the message:
-Please unplug the fax machine for your safety
-Open the front cover
-Remove the toner & drum assembly (theres a handle in the center of the drum/toner assembly, just pull it towards you.
-Remove any pieces of paper stuck or the jammed paper
-Remove the toner from the drum and check for any other pieces of paper stuck
-Once everything is clear
-Reinstall the toner back into the drum and the drum & toner assembly to the fax machine. You should hear it click into place once installed correctly
-Close the front cover & plug in the power cord. That should clear the message
Hope this helps,
Thumbs up if it does, thanks!
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.
