Back cover error on LCD won't go away

I have a Brother DCP-7020 and after opening the back cover yesterday, the LCD keeps saying that I need to close the back cover. I have tried powering it on/off, taking all the paper out of it and even slamming the back cover. Nothing seems to work. I need help!!!

Re: Back cover error on LCD won't go away

This is most likely caused by the back cover switch. It is either broken or the lever on the back cover is broken off.

Brother DCP 7020 error 'back cover open close

  • Open the back cover.
  • Pull the flap down that hides the orange roller on the fuser (be careful: it's hot)
  • Locate the inner flap that runs from the centre to the right hand side.
  • 3/4 along the right hand side, there is a tiny little perpendicular appendage on this bar that should sit in a slot. Locate it properly and the error will go away. You can go that by slightly bending the slot if fits into on the inner flap. The appendage can get jossled out of the slot when one is removing jambed paper.
