This is control by a micro switch possibly actuated by an extension on the cover hinge. This suggests the switch has 'stuck' on.
Go to www.fixyourownprinter.co,
Type in the field you device type /model number and see if any remedies exist.
Also contact customer support at Lexmark.

I changed my ink but it wont let me print it keeps saying i need to change my ink why?


What is the version of your ink cartridge? It could be that it's not seated properly in the cartridge carrier. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet in the wall to reset it. When the printer turns on, open the printer cover and reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover. If no error, open the printer cover and reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. You could also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

HP920c cartridge light wont stop blinking, printer wont print


Please refer below for detailed troubleshooting of the specific condition:

PRINT CARTRIDGE light RESUME light POWER light Blinking Off On c00106873.jpg c00106862.jpg c00106865.jpg Problem

The printer top cover is open, or there may be something wrong with the print cartridge.

Solution

  1. Close the printer top cover.
  2. If the PRINT CARTRIDGE light continues to blink, continue with the following steps:
    1. Open the top cover. The print cartridge cradle will move and then stop.
    2. Locate the yellow arrow on the top of the print cartridge cradle. The yellow arrow points to a drawing of a cartridge that represents a symptom. Perform the task associated with that symptom.
    3. For a list of symptoms, refer to How to use the cartridge drawings under the top access door on a 900 series Deskjet .

Cd tray error Canon Pixma MP810


Sorry a little late only just read your problem.
The location is not the bottom tray feeder but the disk tray. In settings change your media type to "Printable Disk" the paper scource should automatically change to "Disk Tray" and hopefully every thing will work OK.

Yes sounds like you may have a broken or out of alignment hinge on your printer. Examine it very closely to see if you can align it without breaking it. If so try printing again to see if this fixes it. Restart your computer and printer after alignment of door.
