There is a small microswitch inside that goes bad, it's on the right behind the front panel. A repair shop would be the best, but if you can get to the switch the wire ends just need to be shorted together.

Problem with my Canon Pixma MP500


Try a hard reset first: Unplug the printer from power source and PC, wait about 5 minutes and replug. Should the issue recur, then the cover sensor is probably faulty. That is the reason you are getting this error repeatedly. The only solution is to send the printer in for servicing and get the sensor repaired/replaced.

In any case, here are the steps to close the inner cover:

1. Press the Open Button (1) to open the Paper Output Tray (2).

2. Raise the Scanning Unit until it stops.

3. Close the Inner Cover

4. Now close the Scanning Unit.

You can also try reinstalling the printer software along with any patches, updates, etc from the Canon website. Make sure you uninstall the existing software first though..

If neither works, then its time to take the printer in for servicing. You could try to contact them by phone first:
  • Toll-free live technical support** Monday through Friday 10:00 AM ET to 10:00 PM ET (excluding holidays) at 1-800-828-4040
  • The location of the ASF nearest you for carry-in service at 1-800-828-4040
  • Toll-free TDD Support Line for the Hearing Impaired Monday - Saturday (excluding holidays) at 1-866-251-3752
  • Technical Support for Customers in Canada at 1-800-OK-CANON
Hope that helps!

The inner cover (flap in front of cartridges) is closed but the following sign keeps reappearing "inner cover is open. Close the inner cover and press ok".


When the message shows means inner cover sensor is faulty so it cannot detect inner cover state correctly. Try to clean the contact sensor with contact cleaner is good idea since it sometimes an oxidation occurs. Many times I success fix the problem like this.

Getting "inner cover is open" message


The inner cover is a flap on the inside in front of the carriage when it is at rest when the cover us open. You had to flip the inner cover down to access the ink cartridges.
Open the cover. The inner cover is in the center and need to be flipped up.
Good luck.

Printer says paper jam but there is none


Look Inside of each cover on the printer & see if there is a small piece of paper inside. Also, check if there is loose dust from the paper built up by the sensor switches. If none of these work, try flipping the sensor switches manually. Sometimes these get stuck in a particular bad paper jam.

MP600 - Says inside cover is open - but it's not!


This is a hardware problem nothing to do with software; somewhere inside the printer a cover is not closed correctly.
