Hi there

Yes you should see it when you you look at the cover there will be some thing there that push it, maybe this has broken but you can put some thing there so it will make it think it closed.

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.

Install side cover on 455 rancher with chain break


Problem is you removed side cover with chain brake closed. You must open the chain brake to re-install the cover. You can do it with the handle. Put the side cover into position, put the handle into the fitting on the side cover. push the handle forward until you feel the "3" point connector engage. apply pressure to the handle and pull back until the side chain brake "Pops" open. Your Husqvarna dealer has a tool to open the chain brake if you are unable to get it open. Takes about 5 mins.

HP 5600 series Lid won't close properly so can't get anything to print. when I start to try to print the power button and the ink low button both flash but its not short of ink. If I press the resume...


On the HP5650 there is a switch on the right hand side at the top. The switch is flush with the inside surface under the cover. A tab on the right hand side of the cover is supposed to depress this switch telling the printer the cover is closed. If the cover is warped (mine was) or if the tab has broken off, you can manually depress the switch with a pen-point (or just hold the cover at that point) to get the printer to activate.

Hp deskjet printer 6840 wont print .keeps on saying top cover is open when it is actually closed.


Pop off the right side cover - it is just held with clips. At the hinge, you will see that the cover switch arm that is supposed to move up and down as the cover opens & closes (in the slot in the geared hinge) is probably broken off. It is in the up position when the lid is closed, and down when the lid is open. I cut the shaft of a Q-tip to length and wedged it into the space to keep the cover switch up all of the time and still allow free movement of the lid.

Samsung CLP-300 - Cover Open error message, but covers are closed


Front cover is on the right hand side, back is on the left hand side in the middle, and the top cover is like a little button on top. All the others are little openings.

Printer cover


I have a Lexmark X6570 All In One Wi-Fi model. Just had the problem where I went to print and received an error message saying that the cover was open (when it wasn't). I noticed that the back right hand corner had slightly popped out of place for no apparent reason. Tried to pus it back into place with no luck.

Here's what happened and how to fix it:
There are two plastic hinges at the back of the 6500 series printers that allow the top cover to open for access to the ink cartridge carriage. The lower ends of the hinges are cylindrical shaped and each contains a very stiff steel spring inside. They are designed to prop the cover of the printer up and hold it open when opened. As the plastic material ages, it may weaken and the tension of the internal spring may break the round end of the hinge off. This causes the printer cover to not fully close (even though it may appear so). There is a switch in the main printer body that detects when the top cover it open (even partially), and the printer won't work in this condition.

To fix this, open the top cover and carefully disconnect the 3 wire harnesses and the ribbon cable that run from the top cover to the base of the printer. Then remove the 'paper jam' hatch cover from the back of the printer. There are two phillips screws on the back panel of the pinter (one is located behind the paper jam hatch cover). Remove these screws (they secure the plastic hinges in place). You should now be able to lift the complete top cover/ scanner table assembly off the rest of the printer. Look for a steel spring about 3 inches long...remove this along with the round base of the hinge which may have broken off and remained down inside the printer. Glue this piece back onto the end of the hinge, but leave the spring out. Now reassemble the printer in the reverse order of disassembly and you should be good to go. Note that the top cover or the printer will not stay propped open on it's own with the spring removed, but this is not really an issue.

I am not sure if new replacement hinges are readily available from Lexmark or other sources.

One more person with BACK COVER OPEN problem


Easy solution - once you open up the back cover, there is another smaller black cover that goes over the fuser - on the inside of this smaller cover is a spring loaded piece - this is the "back cover sensor" so to speak. Make sure this is aligned properly, if it doesn't rest in it's place you will forever get the back cover open message.
