* Open the back cover

* Pull the flap down that hides the orange roller on the fuser
(Careful it's Hot on that fuser!!)

* Locate the thin piece of plastic that runs from the centre to the right hand side. This bar is the problem

* 3/4 along the right hand side, there is a sticky out bit on this bar that should sit in a hole.

* I have found three printers where this was not located properly. Once I located it properly, the 'door open' error went away.

There is a cable that runs from the scanner to the processor. Looking from the front, its on the left side of the machine, on the back, it is a fairly large connector.
Unscrew the two thumb screws, then unplug it and plug it back in with the machine ON.
It will force it into a reset and may boot.


The problem is caused by a software glitch .


Check the tray settings and ensure that paper size guides are set to the appropriate paper size, then power off/power on the machine.

Back Cover Open Close The Back Cover Is Message I'm getting. What is the Problem?


Open the front cover and remove the drum and toner(cartridge).

There should be a paperjam in the machine. It reads back cover open because the piece of paper is covering the sensor for the back cover.

Have a Panasonic kx-e700m typewriter. I came back from vacation and the display reads "Machine is busy." I have tried to clear it by turning off the machine, typing "code+K" and have not been successf


hello sonya, this may or may not work, but leave power switch on, open your top cover, unplug machine and let sit for about 10-15 minutes. plug back in, close cover and see if you can type. if it still doesn't work, you're most likely looking at a "hard" failure that can only be repaired by a tech.

hth and good luck,

Error message-Close the back cover


It appears that you have a broken back door have a look on the door to see if there is a broken piece of plastic as when you shut the rear door a tab pushes against a push switch letting the machine know that the door is closed. if you cannot see a broken piece then the switch it faulty try this by push a flat screw driver on the switch and check if the message disappears.

Fax fixable? error msg


We call the moose method of clearing paper jams, the RCMP method, cuz they only know how to shoot to kill. You did good. Except, there is no such thing as "Bending" anything. The term is "re-form."

remove the paper tray under the printer and then remove the metal plate they is a rod that guides the paper ensure that the spring for that rod is in place and allign that rode that should get you going. Easy hey .i checked the back of my printer and it took me a day to figure it out, it was only when i took it apart and check every component when i realized the importance or this piece of plastic rod on a spring..
