I believe the "relay Unit" on that machine is the section that transports copies to either the finisher (if installed) or the exit tray on the LEFT side of that machine. Sometimes neither of these units are present, but the relay unit may still be installed.
There are 2 flip up covers on that section (left and right), and you will probably see that one of them (usually the left one) has come unclipped, or perhaps the plastic clip that holds it closed is broken. If you flip up this unit. You will see a black button at the back end that is engaged when ther unit is closed. If you simply pree this button with your finger, hopefully the message will go away - this may at least help you troubleshoot what is causing the "cover open" message). Even if the clip is broken, it is often just a matter of seating the unit correctly so that the switch is engaged when the unit is closed. There is also the same switch on the right cover that could be causing the problem, but this cover doesn't sem to get damged as often.
I hope this helps. Please let me know.

This error massage shows up when there's paper jam in the back of the machine. If the door is securely closed and the error persists, I would recommend you to check for jammed paper in the back of the machine. To do this, please follow this LINK and follow the step by step instructions. You'll find the detailed instructions with illustrations.
I would also suggest you to use a blower (or you can also use a vacuum cleaner). Remove the cartridge/s and drum, open both the front and the back door, and then blow through the passage from front to back or from back to front. Repeat the process several times and do this while the printer is Off or while it's turning On or after it's turned On.
You can also do some manual cleaner if the problem persists. Clean all the rollers. You'll find the instructions HERE.
