Question about HP Photosmart 375 InkJet Printer
When you turn the printer on it says the ink cartidge door is open and it is closed . I have opened and closed several times even put new cartidge. I push okay and still does the same. help

My suggestion: Don't buy HP. I have the same region coding problem. All I want to do is buy HP ink, put it in my HP printer and print stuff. Too hard. I've wasted 30 pounds on ink and another 30 pounds on "support" phone calls to HP. Hopeless. I will never buy HP again. Waste of time and money.

I had the same problem except it would not recognize any of the ink cartridges. I kept hitting the OK button over and over again with the same cartridges in place not removing them at all and it finally recognized them. Decided to go to maintenance on the printer to do a test, and it went right back to not recognizing the cartridges. So i pressed the OK button over and over again until it finally recognized all the cartridges again, but this time i did not try and go into the maintenance to do a test run. Plugged it up to the computer and it has been working ever since. So press the OK button until it recognizes the cartridges, and run no tests on it is what my solution was for the problem. Really is a pain but it works now.

Here's the answer:
The sensor is probably stuck, and it took me a few minutes to fix!!

There's no sensor, it's just a spring and a plastic wedge thing.
Using a #10 torx driver, remove two screws holding the right-hand side panel from the printer. (one in the back, one on top underneath the ink access door.) Unsnap it and set it aside.
Disconnect 3 small ribbon cables and one 5-pin connector that lead from the printer to the access door/scanner.
Remove the lid from the flatbed, then remove the access door from it's hinges. Use the torx driver and unscrew the hinges from the main scanner body.
Lift the hinge assembly from the scanner and push the steel pin out, seperating the two parts of the hinge.
From there you should be able to loosen them up, remove the springs, lubricate them, or find whatever the problem is.
Reassemble and you're done.
