SOURCE: doc cover open

Yes there is and I know your problem have a look at the left hinge on lid that you lift to put down an original for copying, it will be breaking apart, the switch is black in that same corner on doc feeder base, as the hinge breaks apart the doc feed lifts in that corner causing "doc cover open" cause that switch no longer gets pushed in when lid is shut

Dodgy repair - tape switch closed, but doc feeder will not work properly/can use glass.

Repair - Easy removal of three screws and replacing 20buck hinge bought from brother dealer...part no.LE8731001 Hinge assy left.

Now that's FIXYA!

The error message says Doc. Cover open but the cover is closed


You will probably have a broken hinge at the back left hand side of the Doc. cover.
This means that the cover won't close properly at the back corner, and the cover sensing switch won't actuate.

Dcp 8045D laser printer error say doc cover open, I don't no what is a doc cover, and the manule the machine came with can't be found


The document cover (or lid) is the large part that you pull up (open) when you want to scan a single page using the "flatbed" part of the scanner instead of the automatic document feeder (AFD).

There may be something under the lid that is holding it up slightly open.

Lift the lid and close it...
It should work, now.

If NOT, Turn OFF, unplug from outlet, wait a few minutes and plug back in.

Hope this helps!

My Nikon Coolpix S5 has a broken lens; it son't fully close/ open. The message displayed on the screen says "Lens cover error". Is it something that can be repaired? How much would it cost to fix...


Hi , The lens cover error is because the stepper motor in the camera is unable to open the lens cover. I have a solution posted in doc "nikon s5 s6 lens cover error repair.doc"  uploaded on site http://www.esnips.com/web/papputatiyasStuff    It will be helpfull for you. You have written that your lense is broken. In that case you can follow the procedure given in my doc to open the camera. You can replace the camera lens if broken.
Happy debugging Mukesh
