Why I got the message "close cover - upper cover open" ?


There is a sensor on the front left side usualy that detects the cover open or closed state. Check it maybe you made a mistake at assembling it or something came in between and the sensor can't detect it.

Lexmark X1270. The paper goes to right and can not feed to print.


Leading cause of paper jams is debris/foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area.

1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Grab a flashlight and look inside for any debris.

3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris that could cause this error or problem.

6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

7. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power outlet to reset it.

8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again.

9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge.

The paper always jams when I want to print. It grabs the right side of the paper and scrunches the left side. It is a lexmark x5150 I have tried different paper and nothing works.

Hello. I have a Lexmark x4650 printer/scanner/copier and the paper starts to feed thru and then pulls to one side. I am then unable to print my document. Why does this keep happening and how can i solve...


Try to remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Grab a flashlight and look into the feeder for any foreign objects that might have accidentally fell into it. If feeder is clear, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. While the printer cover is open, check inside for any obstructions in the paper path. If none, then close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges. Close the cover. Load some paper (avoid overloading). Try to print again.
If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Our lexmark 5400 series printer fell on the floor. We put it back together but now it says cover open even when it's not. Not sure how to fix this problem.


Try to remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and make sure they are properly seated and secured. Close the cover. Load some paper. Try to print again. If problem continues, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

Motor error comes up when motor of the printer fails to turn or run. Here's what you can do:
Run motor detect (NOTE: You may need to run motor detect procedure two or three times to be successful.). To run motor detect, you need to go to the Diagnostic Menu.
1. Turn the printer off.
2. Press and hold Left and Select.
3. Turn the printer on.
4. Release the buttons when the installed memory and processor speed displays. Scroll down to Miscellaneous Tests. Press the select button
Motor Detect
This test initiates an automatic motor detection process that should be performed whenever the controller board
is replaced.
To run Motor Detect:
1. Remove the imaging unit and the waste toner bottle.
2. Reinstall the right cover assembly.
3. Close the front cover.
4. Enter Diagnostics menu (Turn the printer off, press and hold Left ( ) and Select ( ), turn the printer on,
and release the buttons when the installed memory and processor speed displays.

Canon MP530 print head malfunction


I had the same problem with my printer. There is a switch that tells the printer that the cover is open or closed. Unplug the printer. Open up the printer cover and look on the inside right side edge. About half way back, you'll see a 3/4 inch by 1/2 inch hole where this switch resides. If you put your finger into it, you may be able to push on a lever and it will go down. It should spring back up when you pull your finger out. If you can feel the lever but it just sits at the bottom then there either this lever is broken or the spring fell off.

The problem with my printer was the spring had popped out. To access the switch, you'll need to remove the right side cover. Do this by removing the two screws in the back on the right side. Open the printer cover and find the third screw. It is located on the right hand side, near the front of the printer, on the top. Remove this screw and pop out the cover and see if you can find the spring that is attached to the lever. Make sure you do this in an area that if a small piece fell out you could find it.

Look at the switch and lever. If there is no spring attached to the lever then it is most likely the problem, otherwise the switch may be bad or the electronics inside the printer. There is a hook on the lever and one on the printer. Reconnect the spring and it should fix the problem. I found my spring had completely fallen out and fell on the floor when the cover was opened. It is possible that this spring if fallen out can fall back inside the printer so you may have to shake the printer to find this little spring. It is about 1/2 inch long. Hope this helps.
