Printer will not print

When I try to print I receive a message stating the print cover is open. I checked the cover and it is not open and there is nothing stopping it from closing. I can't turn my printer off without having to unplug it.

Re: Printer will not print

I had that problem too.

Unplug the printer.
Hold the printer cover open while you plug in the printer.
Then wait for the printer to power on while still holding the cover open.
Then close the cover.
The buttons should work and th error message should be gone.

It worked for me.

How to print faxes from the lexmark x5630 which is stored in the memory

Usually, faxes are temporarily sent to the printer's memory when one of the cartridges' ink level is not substantial for printing at the instance of receiving the fax. When this happens, try to replace the cartridge(s), *without navigating away from the message "fax sent to memory", by opening the printer cover and replacing the low-ink or empty cartridge(s). After the new cartridge is installed, close the printer cover and press the OK button. Your printer should then print the fax stored in the memory.
*Make sure not to navigate away from the "fax sent to memory" message, otherwise, data will be lost.

Lexmark x5470 the machine received faxes but does not print them. saying "fax jobs in memory"... how do i print them?!?!

It could be because one of your cartridges has low ink level, thus printer is not able to continue printing the fax message. Open the printer cover and replace your cartridges (without navigating away from the fax mode). Once cartridge/s has been replaced, just hit the Check mark to print the fax message.

Printer cover open

Friend if the printer states that the printer cover is open. it means that the cover of the printer is open or not locked. the cover above the cartridge is the one mentioned.
1. Be sure to lock or closed the printer cover before printing because if it is open it will not print because the software automatically detect the unclosed part of the printer.
2. check whether the hinges is safely attached it can be found in the printer cover side attached to the body of the printer.

When attempting to print, I receive an error message which states "Inner conver is open. Close the inner cover and press OK". However, the inner cover is closed...? I have opened and closed...

Are you looking at the canon error window picture that show up on your monitor: It is the front inner flap you see after you open up the two top "covers". I forgot I opened this one looking for a paper jam. The printer cartridges would not even move to the front with this flap opened. After I closed the inner flap it all works (after opening and closing the top two "covers" many times!
