This is a "Sensor" issue, there is a sensor that detects when the Cover is closed, this is either faulty, not being activated, or being activated but not registering at the CPU. Sometimes it is an actual switch, others it is a hall effect sensor, optical, magnetic sensor or the like. Have a squiz and see if ya can see any sensor etc. maybe its blocked etc. Otherwise I think it's gonna have to go 4 repair.. If so get a firm "Quote" B4 allowing them to proceede.

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.

Its a defective printer you have that cant get out of paper output tray is close or that the paper output tray is not properly placed into the printer.
Try to reseat the output tray and let me know. If it does not work, you may need to send printer to repairs.

As a technician, I have worked on tons of printers. This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corresponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on).
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: My printer is a Canon
I had the exact same problem. The Alarm light was always on and the screen said "Document in ADF. When I pressed "OK" it would read "Eject the document". Even after I placed paper in the ADF and the paper would feed the document through it, the error and the Alarm light was still there. I found the solution, Lift the cover to expose the flat bed scanner glass. Under the cover, there is a long white bar with two white tabs perpendicular to the white bar. One of the tabs was retracted. Pull on the tab until it is fully extended. The alarm turns off and there is no longer the error. Simple solution to a damn annoying issue.
