Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Normal 0 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

Try to follow the steps below to identify and fix the problem:
  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.
  2. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
  3. Close the printer cover.
  4. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.
  5. When the printer turns on and comes back with the error on the display screen, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance. If no error appears, reinsert one cartridge first.
  6. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  7. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
  8. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge.
  9. If no error appears, try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

I changed the ink cartridge and now the printer screen reads "cover open"


Sometiems you have to close the covers firmly to get the sensor to recognize that it is actually shut

My printer says "Cover Open" after changing the cartridge. Nothing was broken. HOW DO I FIX IT?!?!?!


The cover has been probably opened too widely and the the lever on the cover open sensor is knocked off the switch assembly. If you teer off the cover, you will see a little plastic lid on the right (where electric cables and switches are) This switch has come out its switch. With some fiddling around you should be able to put it back in place.
