Question about Brother MultiFunction Center MFC-440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
The MFC-465CN printer reads on the screen " Cover is open. Please close the scanner cover and ink cartridge cover". I have opened and close these covers more than 30 times and unplugged the machine for days at a time and the error message is still . I have had this machine for 3 years with no problems and it has been great. Is there a simple fix for this?
Thanks for any help.

Review page 65 in your manual. Changing the "Advanced Fax Operations:"
If received faxes are left in your machine's
memory when you change the Advanced Fax
Operations, the LCD will ask you one of the
Erase All Fax?
Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2
Print All Fax?
Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2
• If you press 1, faxes in the memory will
be erased or printed before the setting
changes. If a backup copy has already
been printed it will not be printed again.
• If you press 2, faxes in the memory will
not be erased or printed and the setting
will be unchanged.

The paper sensor is either stuck or dirty.
Just open it and follow the paper path and you should see where it is.
Otherwise, the sensor may be bad.

Have you tried cleaning the print head? Find the instructions in the troubleshooting and maintainance section of the manual here http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_MFC_465cn_EN_1269.PDF

The problem is due to the fact that Brother machines excessively self-clean. Each time they self-clean a small amount of ink is dumped in to a holding tank/sponge. When a predefined number of self-clean operations have been performed, the machine refuses to print and gives the error message you have stated. Brother state that the tank/sponge must be replaced before the counter is reset, again by a Brother agent.
However, there is a way of reseting the self-clean counter yourself - if you Google your model number and the error code somewhere in the results you'll find how to do it. The only risk of doing this without changing the tank/sponge is that it will eventually overflow and leak out the bottom, but I did my Brother all in one some time ago and have had no problems yet.
