first remove the bar that holds the lid up.

(1)Just pinch it together easy and it will come out of the bracket.
(2)Then remove the lid for the scanner by just lifting and pull easy
and it snaps out.
(3)At the two back hinges press on the two hold sides and pull up easy on the lid. Do one side at a time.
(4) Now check and see if the white bracket is still on the switch and if not snap it back on. Then take some tape and tape it to the housing in the close mode. It will always be in the close mode and works just fine. You do not have to take it apart just take the two lids off and replace the plastic switch back on and tape it to the housing. You do have to remove the paper back holder. It to snaps out of it holder.
Hope this helps. Make sure to unplug it first.( both connection)

Cover open

This is because the white plastic rocker switch which is very poorly attached to the micro switch at the back of the unit has become dislodged which means the micro switch is permanently open. Unfortunately due to its very poor design it has probably lost its plastic lugs which keep it attached to the micro switch.

Locate the dislodged rocker switch, you may have to turn the printer upside down and shake it. If it won't come out, shake it after removing the cover...

If the plastic lugs are still in place then you are lucky. You will need to get inside the unit to refit it...

Open the unit as if you were about to replace the ink. Unclip the plastic prop at the top; you can pinch it using a pair of pliers. The cover will now hinge up much further, there is some minor friction still but it will come up to 90 degrees with a gentle tug.

It will now easily lift away from the hinges on the main body. You can remove the ribbon leads if you like. They go back again very easily.

You should now be able to get your fingers inside the unit. You will need a flat blade screw driver to assist you refitting the rocker. You should feel it clip into place if the plastic lugs are in place, even if they are worn. Test it and check it won’t fall off again easily.

It is much more likely that it will fall off again as the lugs have worn away.

This can be fixed by heating a medium sized paper clip with a lighter and pushing it through the side of the rocker, in the same location as the lugs. Cut the paper clip with the pliers, this will leave a 2-3mm pin sticking through the side of the rocker. Do this for both sides. Resite the rocker, then using a flat blade screw driver push the pins into the holes on the black micro switch. This should be quite easy as the rocker will still site in the correct position even if they are missing.

You will now have a fully functioning switch which will be far stronger than the original design.

Put everything back together, and test it.
