Keeps saying cover is open/ please close the ADF cover


The message indicates that the printer door or the cover located on the top is not closed properly, so you need to re-open the door or the printer cover and close it accurately.

The screen states "close cover E" It is closed but the screen keeps saying " close cover E" ?


The Exit 2 interlock switch is either broken or off it's base or defective. If you open up the top door on left side of print, there is a push button switch that mounts on the back side. If you're standing on the left side of printer it's located on the top left. Make sure it's mounted properly and try to push the button with your finger and see if error goes away, if not replace switch, part number 110E11580.

Hi, my printer keeps saying cover open even though it is not have opened printer up but do not know which way back to put the white piece thanks


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.

I changed the ink in my Lexmark 3400 printer and I keep getting an error message "cover open" and it's not open. I tried everything....unloading the software then reloading the software, shutting it off...


The printer displays a 'Cover open, please close cover' error message, even though the cover is closed.

This can happen if the lever on the cover open sensor is knocked off the switch assembly.

The resume button keeps flashing even after I shut off printer, and won't allow me to print. I turned off and on the printer several times. I don't get an error message. All ink is OK.


Make sure the ink cartridge cover is properly closed.

My sister's printer had a similar problem and on initial inspection the cover seemed to be closed, however a small bit of the plastic clip that holds the cover closed had snapped off and therefore wasn't holding the cover properly closed and the sensing micro switch that tells the printer the hatch is closed wasn't being activated.

Not very scientific and a bit of a bodge, but some suitably placed selotape / duct tape / insulating tape to hold the cover firmly closed did the trick.

Hope this helps.

Back cover open message


I had the same error message. I also tried every compartment... Here's ultimately what my problem/solution was...

I turned the printer around and fully opened the back cover. I found that one of my kids had somehow fed a small piece of paper/cardboard into the printer. When I opened the back cover all the way I could see that obstruction (which I hadn't seen before). Pulled it out, and the error message went away. Works fine now.

Cover open error


There is a latch that preses a small switch when you close the cover (look for this) to indicate that it it close if it is broken you can tweek it using a toothpick or anything that may press the switch temporarily this may alow it to work as long as the switch stays down.
