There is no replacement part available from Dell. Temporary fix is removing the hinge spring under the small concave white plastic piece (you can remove that also) allows the cover to close. The nub under the cover has to press a "lid closed" switch which is not possible if the lid hinge is broken.

How to clear the "Check Original " error message?
error can occur if the document being sent or copied is not inserted
properly, fed incorrectly or is too long. Follow the troubleshooting
steps and recommendations listed below:
Remove any paper that is not jammed from the ADF.
Open the top cover by lifting the lever on the right side of the top cover.
Pull the original toward the front of your fax machine.
Close the top cover. Press down on both sides of the top cover until it clicks.
placing the document(s) in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), verify
the error message "CHECK ORIGINAL" no longer is displayed on the LCD.
If the error message continues to appear on the display, unplug the
unit for 30 seconds and then plug it back in.
Hi, this error code means that either one of the trouble has occurred: Either there is a "Paper jam" in or "General malfunction" in the printer.. there might be some pieces of paper or
dust in between the rollers. please carefully examine roller area and take a good look into rollers.
And than Try to reset the printer to erase memory code errors. 1. Press Resume button and hold it for 1 - 2 minutes 2. Open the cover 3. Remove the cartridge and then put it back again. 4. Close The Cover 5. Turn Off the printer wait and then Turn it On again

Remove the sheets of paper. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges as well. Close the cover. Then unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to reset itself. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges when prompted. Load some paper. Check for any error. Try to print.
HI,I had the same problem today. I ended up taking a piece of paper and from the back side started lightly forcing the paper in the back slot. I had the top cover open where you replace the ink cartridges. Towards the back you can see the paper start coming into the printer next to some rollers. On mine there was a small black switch about an inch from the right in the middle of the plastic piece above the rollers. Once I started pushing this paper in I could see this switch was stuck in the down position. After several minutes of pushing the paper in and out the switch moved up and out of the paper path. I then pulled out the paper and hit the ok button and it came on line. This may work better with a piece of card stock. That switch is the issue. I ended up finding an object lodged against the switch. Needed a flashlight, plastic giftcard and a tweezers to get it out. Works great now.
Also,open the printer where the paper for printing is put in. At the back left hand side there is a white long piece and either side a white piece with a small square on it. Use a longingish screwdriver and push this gently down. It will click back into place quite easily. Note: this tops the paper from feeding in and needs reseting after a jam.You will know all is OK when a sheet of ordinary paper is put in > touches the feed roller above the white bits, and is level across the paper feed area.
Please try out the blow mentioned 2 options. I am sure the problem will be sorted out:
When you lift the cover up along the back end of the gray plastic bottom cover, you'll see a square opening close to the right side hinge. There should be a little white plastic piece sticking out of there. If not, it fell into the guts of the printer. You have to remove the gray plastic and find the white lever and replace it onto a micro-switch along the back where the square opening is/was. You'll see a PCB (printed circuit board) there and the micro-switch will be located on that...
Hope this helps
2. Remove the screws on the front of the cover when it is open. Once removed At the back of the unit 2/3 rd from the left there is a small switch if this is pushed in ( and held by whatever means sellotape etc it will opperate normally (to change cartridge you may have to re do)
Often, this would just be the sensor falsely thinking that the cover B is still open. You could try checking if the cover is slightly misaligned hence the tab is not triggering the senor/switch. Or try opening and closing and making sure that you hear/feel the latching of the switch.
A White Clip On The Rear Has Fallen Off... It Pushes A Micro Switch On The PCB (Printed Circuit Board)... Poke Your Finger In The Middle Hole At The Rear Of The Grey Tray While You Have The Lid Open... Feel The Switch And Press It... (Tiny Button) You Will See I Am Right... Try To Locate The Piece That Has Fallen Off... Glue It Back On Or Order Spare Part... Or Bin The Printer (Lexmark Is Useless) (Buy Epson)
I Hope This Helps!
