Lexmark x6570 hinge is messed up so im getting cover open message


I have a Lexmark X6570 All In One Wi-Fi model. Just had the problem where I went to print and received an error message saying that the cover was open (when it wasn't). I noticed that the back right hand corner had slightly popped out of place for no apparent reason. Tried to push it back into place with no luck.

Here's what happened and how to fix it:
There are two plastic hinges at the back of the 6500 series printers that allow the top cover to open for access to the ink cartridge carriage. The lower ends of the hinges are cylindrical shaped and each contains a very stiff steel spring inside. They are designed to prop the cover of the printer up and hold it open when opened. As the plastic material ages, it may weaken and the tension of the internal spring may break the round end of the hinge off. This causes the printer cover to not fully close (even though it may appear so). There is a switch in the main printer body that detects when the top cover it open (even partially), and the printer won't work in this condition.

To fix this, open the top cover and carefully disconnect the 3 wire harnesses and the ribbon cable that run from the top cover to the base of the printer. Then remove the 'paper jam' hatch cover from the back of the printer. There are two phillips screws on the back panel of the pinter (one is located behind the paper jam hatch cover). Remove these screws (they secure the plastic hinges in place). You should now be able to lift the complete top cover/ scanner table assembly off the rest of the printer. Look for a steel spring about 3 inches long...remove this along with the round base of the hinge which may have broken off and remained down inside the printer. Glue this piece back onto the end of the hinge, but leave the spring out. Now reassemble the printer in the reverse order of disassembly and you should be good to go. Note that the top cover of the printer will not stay propped open on it's own with the spring removed, but this is not really an issue.

I am not sure if new replacement hinges are readily available from Lexmark or other sources.

Replace boot gasket


Hello, Remove the door hinges and plastic covers on the unused hinge screw holes on the opposite side of the door opening (door is reversible, so there are places to mount hinges left and right). Front panel will now snap out at top and lift off lower spring clips. One screw on each side will now release top panel and it will hinge up. Prop up with broom handle or something. Now you can get at everything. Rubber gasket is held onto drum with a cable loop and very strong spring. It rolls off the lip easily to disassemble but is VERY difficult to get back on without special tools or at least two people. Door side of rubber gasket is easy in comparison with rubber tabs inserted into slots and working the gasket into a groove. Hose clamp at bottom of rubber gasket to connect drain hose.

Thanks

I have a Dometic rm2652 refrigerator the door hinge broke


the hinge is not plastic, only the insert sleeve that goes into the hole atop the door is plastic. If the actual hinge (metal arm) is broke, then you need to order a new part (not difficult if frig is 20 years or less). If you cannot find the part, go to a metal shop and show them the broken part, they usually can repair it or remake a new piece.
If the hole in the door went bad (that is: if the hole tore open and cannot hold the hinge pin) you need to have a metal repair brace added to the door. This will involve the metal shop or a good mechanic that can come to you and do the neccessary repair at the house; otherwise you need to bring the door to the metal shop. macgivor

HP 3310. My hinges are broken


Posted by fmoo on May 15, 2009 My hinges also broke ink cartidge door stuck open. HP rep online chat never was able to understand problem.


SOLUTION: open up printer using torx T10 bit. It is pretty tricky take off right side panel. Disconnect all cords, remove paper jam clean out panel in rear. Remove two silver colored screws behind this panel. Remove two black screws on rear of printer next to the hinges. This will allow the middle panel to swing down and be gently lifted back and away from the printer. You need to release the tab on the side panel underneath the open ink cartridge door. Use a putty knife or some other stiff thin metal object lift it gently and it will free the side panel. Disconnect the multi wire connector at rear of printer, then disconnect the three multconnector ribbons noting where they connect. You will replace them in the opposite order. The entire scanner can now be removed (also a little tricky). With the ink cartidge door open (I assume you can't close it yet), push the outermst piece or end of the hinges uptowards the scanner deck (This is hard - the part is stiff) while this tab is pushed in slide the scanner up off of the hinge. TIP: Stand the whole printer on its left side (the printer is now perpindicular to your work area) this will take the weight off of the hinges.
Now with the jammed hinges uncovered, you will find a screw under the front side of the lid hinge. The hinge is slotted so you can reach through it with your Torx bit. Remove the hinge (it now just lifts out) Pull the hinge pin out and take out the black piece of plastic. Do this for both hinges. Just get rid of the worn out plastic piece (it hardly looks worn, and you might as well take the springs out too. Put the hinge together without the spring and the plastic part.
Now reassemble the whole thing. Your printer should work fine, but you will need to prop the thing open to change cartridges in the future.

Broken laptop screen HP Pavilion ZV6000


I have a HP Pavilion zv6000 laptop too, and I have the same problem. A year ago, the screen was getting loose and finally it just broke. Won't stand up. I've been propping it up against a wall for a year. I can see what is wrong: my laptop has gotten so hot that the back of the laptop where the hinges are has warped and ruined the hinges. Do you notice that? The split in the seem and the actual bend of the plastic? Anyway, the computer itself works perfectly. I was going to buy new hinges and replace them myself, but it was too much of a hassle, and I needed a new laptop anyway. The hinges are inexpensive. And the laptop isn't TOO difficult to take apart (search for the manual. it's easy to find). I took it apart with my Grandpa, and he's old, and I'm a girl. (okay, sexist, gender...ist.) I actually received a new laptop as a gift. Luckily. No solution, other than replacing hinges. I just wanted to let people know I too had the same problem.

Cover open Error message


I'd say maybe the switchs is broken and your machine reminds me of a lexmark fault. Look for the cover switch, under lid on base, at rear, small hole, find the switch that get's activated when openning and closing the top, maybe it is missing, or broken.

link to lexmark fault, that I think you will find your answer.

Broken Hinges


I removed the hinges and drilled the flat end of them with a half inch drill. There is a spring inside that needs to be removed. It works fine now, except that the lid needs to be propped open when changing ink ( I use a plastic chop stick for this purpose).
