Re: top cover will not remain open
I am not completely familiar with that model of machine, but most doc feeders have an adjusting screw on the hinge to increase the spring pressure Most are accessible from the back, it may be recessed, so you might need a flashlight to locate it. Some require the removal of an inspection cover in the back of the hinge.
If you locate one, adjust it to just hold the feeder in place, too much tension may create a problem with it sitting properly in the down position, and pressure on the belt when feeding.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I have a Lexmark X6570 All In One Wi-Fi model. Just had the problem
where I went to print and received an error message saying that the
cover was open (when it wasn't). I noticed that the back right hand
corner had slightly popped out of place for no apparent reason. Tried to
push it back into place with no luck.
Here's what happened and how to fix it:
There are two plastic hinges at the back of the 6500 series printers
that allow the top cover to open for access to the ink cartridge
carriage. The lower ends of the hinges are cylindrical shaped and each
contains a very stiff steel spring inside. They are designed to prop the
cover of the printer up and hold it open when opened. As the plastic
material ages, it may weaken and the tension of the internal spring may
break the round end of the hinge off. This causes the printer cover to
not fully close (even though it may appear so). There is a switch in the
main printer body that detects when the top cover it open (even
partially), and the printer won't work in this condition.
To fix this, open the top cover and carefully disconnect the 3 wire
harnesses and the ribbon cable that run from the top cover to the base
of the printer. Then remove the 'paper jam' hatch cover from the back of
the printer. There are two phillips screws on the back panel of the
pinter (one is located behind the paper jam hatch cover). Remove these
screws (they secure the plastic hinges in place). You should now be able
to lift the complete top cover/ scanner table assembly off the rest of
the printer. Look for a steel spring about 3 inches long...remove this
along with the round base of the hinge which may have broken off and
remained down inside the printer. Glue this piece back onto the end of
the hinge, but leave the spring out. Now reassemble the printer in the
reverse order of disassembly and you should be good to go. Note that the
top cover of the printer will not stay propped open on it's own with
the spring removed, but this is not really an issue.
I am not sure if new replacement hinges are readily available from Lexmark or other sources.
Depending on what part is bad or broken, you can get your parts from precisionroller.com
Over to the upper right is a search box. Just put in toshiba 2060 platen cover and you will get the cover and the cushion. If you Hinge is broken which is more common just search for Toshiba 2060 Hinge and you will find those.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
black pages are usually due to chargeing problems, when you open the right hand cover on the 150 model, the charging unit is located on the bottom of the door that swings open, on the left side of that unit, there are 2 contact springs, those 2 springs contact 2 brass looking tabs inside the machine when closed, clean those tabs, and springs, with a pencil eraser, or a cotton swap with VERY LITTLE rubbing alcohol, or both. The only other thing that would cause black pages would be the scanner light not turning on, which would be obvious, when you open the top cover to place a document on the glass, leave it open and press the copy button, if it lights up, that is not the problem, if the light never turns on, the scanner lamp is out.
Open front cover of your 2060. Inside the copier, on the left side, there is a blue lever labeled "A". Press lever "A" towards the left while pushing down on the top of copier....this will unlatch the **** shell and allow the upper portion to lift upward. The waste (used) toner container is located in the center of front frame (semi-clear plastic). Lift upward on container until it clears the frame, CAREFULLY pour the contents into a plastic lined trash can. Replacement is reverse of removal.
Exactly where in the machine does the paper jam??If it jams when you hit the print button, try cleaning the paper feed tires with WD40.spray it on a clean cloth, clean the feed and pickup tires thoroughly and make sure to get ALL of the WD40 off the tires before using the machine.If you take the paper cassette out and look with a flashight you should be able to identify the paper feed tires.
Have you tried the manual feed tray? Which way is the letter size paper being feed in? LTR or LTR-R. You may have a reg. clutch that is slipping. I would also look to see if you have any paper jamed behind the paper tray and make sure the paper trat is displaying that ltter paper is in the papre tray the same way as displayed. Good Luck
