Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I installed a new ink cartridge, properly, but then, found the message Cover Open. I have reinstalled several times trying to remedy the problem. No luck. What to do?

Took a bit of time but worked 1) release the 'kickstand' from the scanner by prying and squeezing it with pliers until the two prongs pop out (or crack and break) 2) detach the scanner hinges by prying/squeezing with pliers until they pop off (or crack and break). (CAUTION: read step 3 below first...don't just yank the scanner off without reading step 3) 3) Carefully unplug ribbon cable and other connector to scanner and set scanner aside. 4) remove screws at front of beige plastic part....pry at the back carefully and this will pop off....sending the screws flying if you left them loose in their little wells. Don't worry, there are only two of them that really do anything anyway. 5) Look towards the rear of the printer and you will see the circuit board and the 'hole' where you can see the sensor, and possibly your white nylon lever arm lying pathetically down in the bowels of the printer. 6) Retrieve and Carefully snap the nylon lever arm back on, and think nasty thoughts about the brainiac who designed that part. reverse the above steps. Put at least most of the screws back in, or the front panel may fall off at a later date. Take care to GENTLY plug the ribbon cable and the other scanner connector back in, making sure it's seated all the way. Try not to bend or kink the end of it, or it will be toast. Good luck, and happy lexmarking.....
