The large top cover has a small pin on the right side that fits into a receiving hole on the top of the printer. The pin pushes down an arm that deactivates the 'open cover' sensor. Your pin is not pushing the arm down. This can happen for a couple reasons, one, the pin could have sheared off (you won't see the pin at all, or the pin is no longer long enough), or two, the pin is not seating in the hole properly.

If not seated properly, you can realign the cover, and ensure the pin is seating into the hole. If the pin is no longer long enough to actuate the arm, simply fasten the sensor end of the arm to the contact in the top of the printer. You can use a hot glue gun, or even tape.

The pin on the cover do not simply push the arm, instead 'slide' it in some manner. Try lubricating somehow the arm inside hole or the pin, allowing to slide with each other !

Throw it in the trash and buy a laser jet.
People who print a lot, and do I, would be better off buying a new printer every time I went to buy cartridges.

Printer cover open error message


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.
