My printer keeps giving me a message that the door is open
I recently upgraded my computer system. When I reattached my printer, everything seemed ok. I opened the access door to the printer to check the ink cartridges and reinstalled them. Now I can't get anything to print because I keep getting a message saying that the door is open. I can copy from this printer, so the ink is ok. Any ideas?

Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

electronics have what is called manufacturers specification upgrading may seem ok but the drive n kind of system may not match the specs this affects the normal working of the upgraded system just buy a windows 10 pc n all will be well
Try this one Take out the inks and printhead Leave the cartridge door open, then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer while the access door is open Close the cartridge door once the cord is unplugged Reconnect the powercord, turn on the printer, then your printer will look for your printhead "Printhead missing or not installed correctly..." Then put everything back. make sure it will snap in to place. Then print a calibration page, then scan it. This is just over writing the error message. Thanks Josh - Kodak Tech Support
OK I'll give you the bad news first. the carriage(the part that holds your cartridges for spraying the ink has a gear behind it and that has broken off. now the not so or the good news is to call in to hp on the toll free number of 1800-474-6836. and if your printer is in warranty then you will get a free replacment. Or if it is ou of warranty then you can opt for the upgrade option that will give you ateleast a 40% discount on the printer you get with cartridges with a 1 year warranty for technical phone support as well as hardware support as well as you can get an extended warranty plan that will put your printer in warranty for another 3 years for anyhardware(replacement) or any software fixing issue
I had the same error message. I also tried every compartment... Here's ultimately what my problem/solution was...
I turned the printer around and fully opened the back cover. I found that one of my kids had somehow fed a small piece of paper/cardboard into the printer. When I opened the back cover all the way I could see that obstruction (which I hadn't seen before). Pulled it out, and the error message went away. Works fine now.
The printer obviously 'thinks' the door is open
How is that controlled I wonder- can you see a micro-switch for example- take look at the hinge is it all visible or does a 'tongue' disappear into the works somewhere to operate such a switch?
