SOURCE: " please close ink cover" what is this mean? i'm

This could be that;
The Ink cartridge door is open
The Ink cartridge door sensor is faulty/bad
Something is block the ink cartridge door sensor or the notch that deactives the sensor is broken.

Checkout the door and locate the sensor and manually deactivate the sensor ti confirm the sensor is still working ok. Replace faulty unit approprately.

SOURCE: my mp600 keeps saying close inner cover-which is closed

I had the same issue, turning off didn't solve it.
There's a plastic flap the width of the print tray just inside that I flipped up and it solved this problem. It is directly in front of the ink tanks. I'm assuming we flipped it down and forgot about it. It seems it needs to stay up, although you wouldn't notice it when it flips down when you close the top, as it closes just fine with it down. It's easy to overlook. This took me a few hours to realize.

The top of the flap has a half circle cut out of it in the middle.

Purchased the ciss ink system for my epson wf-3540. the ink tubing keeps getting pinched and the ink isn't flowing continuously.


I installed a CISS system in my WF-3640 which is very similar to the 3520. I just leave the top open and put a small piece of white eraser in the slot where the cover peg would go into. That way the printer thinks the top is closed. Yo can print, scan, copy, fax, etc., with the top open.

I'm getting an error message when trying to print


Error 6C10 appears on certain Canon printers. It is a "valve cam sensor error". Here are some things to try to fix it:

Solution 1:
  • Move the printhead to the center.
  • Disconnect the printer and check on the right: is the purge unit ok? Is there a paper jam or piece of paper stuck in it?
Solution 2:
  • Do a reset of the printer by performing the following:
    • Turn the printer Power ON
    • Hold down the "Resume" button (triangle in a circle) for 15 to 20 seconds.
Solution 3:
  • Power off the printer.
  • Open the door.
  • Power on.
  • When the cartridge is in the center, close the door.
Solution 4:
  • Open the lid and allow the ink cartridge carrier to center itself.
  • Looking to the right, you will see a row of white rollers behind the carrier.
  • At the end of the rollers there is a small, clear piece of plastic that sticks up. Take a small piece of a paper towel and wipe all of the ink off this piece of plastic. When that is clean move on to the ink pad.
  • About 1 inch, towards the front of the printer from that piece of plastic, is a small square, about 1/2 inch per side, that is a small foam pad. This is where the excess ink is collected.
  • Take a piece of paper towel and press into the foam. Do this until the paper towel is no longer collecting ink. Close the lid, turn off the printer then turn it back on.
Solution 5:
Solution 6:
  • Remove case and look for the micro switch that is being pressed by one of the purge unit cams. Clean the switch and the cams. If the problem does not clear, replace the micro switch.

Printer brand brother model DCP-J125. does not working properly, Close ink cover has appear the LCD monitor


The sensor for this is actually used for both the scanner cover and the ink cover,
there are two flags that both must sit into the sensor to reach a ready state.

If you examine the ink cover there's a small piece of plastic that paths into a hole on the machines frame. This piece of plastic pushes a small black plastic flag that tells the sensor the door is closed.


If it's constantly telling you to close the ink cover inspect both the cover itself to verify that piece of plastic isn't broken and is going into the hole; and look inside and verify the flag isn't broken or damaged (flashlight and a small eyeglass screwdriver help here)

Either can be fixed for cheap at any reputable printer repair shop, I would look for a brother warranty place even if it's out of warranty as they'll be more likely to have donor machines sitting around for spare parts.

HP 5850 Top Cover Open error message


There is a sensor that tells if the cover is open or closed, and a plactic "tongue" protruding on the cover, usually near the hinge, that goes into a recess in the printer.
Two things may have happened - this "tongue" broke off at some point, or the sensor developed a fault.

There are optical sensors, where the "tongue" blocks light going in between an emitter and a receiver, and simpe electrical contact sensors, which open or short when the "tongue" goes up.

There's not much that can be done with an optical sensor, but an electrical one can be inspected and corrected if needed, if you have some manual skills.

Piece that holds in the ink cartridge broke i need a part where


HP doesn't stock any of those small plastic pieces for us to order. The best bet is Ebay or garage sale for a scrapped printer.

Error Message


Thats an interlock switch, you can fold a piece of paper into a one inch long piece and then stick it in th "plug" this will over ride the switch, you probably have broken the plastic piece that is located on the cover that tells the printer that the cover is closed.

My printer keeps saying Cover Open and won't let me do anything else


Hi All printers have a protruding piece of plastic on the cover / lid, when out of place it tells the printer the cover is open

When you close lid it is inserted into main frame which tells the printer that the lid is closed.

Look for this it may be damaged. If so roll a small piece of paper and insert ito the recepticle hole.

It will trick printer that the lid is now closed.

You will need to remove it each time you need to change inks etc...

Good Luck!
