The sensor that detects when the cover is open is "lying" to you -- it may be clogged with dust or ink, and thus is giving a "false positive" report.

Blow some compressed-air at the sensor, to see if that will unclog it.

Or, take the printer to a qualified technician, for proper trouble-shooting.

When I try to print, I get the error: Top Cover Open: The printer cannot print because the top cover is open. How do I fix this?


Hi cduckyquack ,

  • All you need to do is close the printer cover if it's open , once it's closed you should be able to print correctly without any warning messages.
  • If the cover is closed and still you are getting the same message , then it might be a problem with the censor switch which indicates to the printer whether or not the cover is open, so if the switch / sense has gone faulty then you need to repair it.
  • Sometimes just because of dust the printer does not sense the cover being closed and it results in the error message that you have described.
  • Hope this helps ...) your feedback would be appreciated.

Hi. You have to follow these steps: Be very careful:

1. Open front cover, like in this image:

I hope I helped you!

New toner but still getting error message


Have you replaced the chip?
If so try the little cap on the right side of the drum, Remove and rotate the
little lever on the inside so it will not show in the open spot of the cover.
replace the cover and retry,

Hi
This is the proper procedure andif this fails, take it in for service.

Disconnect the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable from the back of the product, but leave the product turned on.
Open the cover of the product and remove the print cartridges.
Close the cover and wait for the Insert Ink Cartridges message to display.
Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product and wait for one minute.
Reconnect the power cord. If the product does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.
Open the cover and reinsert the print cartridges.
Close the cover. If prompted, print a calibration page.
Reconnect the USB cable, and try to print a print job from the computer. Source(s): Computer Analyst / Microsoft Certified

Getting "inner cover is open" message


The inner cover is a flap on the inside in front of the carriage when it is at rest when the cover us open. You had to flip the inner cover down to access the ink cartridges.
Open the cover. The inner cover is in the center and need to be flipped up.
Good luck.

I changed the ink in my Lexmark 3400 printer and I keep getting an error message "cover open" and it's not open. I tried everything....unloading the software then reloading the software, shutting it off...


The printer displays a 'Cover open, please close cover' error message, even though the cover is closed.

This can happen if the lever on the cover open sensor is knocked off the switch assembly.

I am getting a System Error E021, what does this mean?


Hi,
In my home office this error message came up, E021. I opened the Printer cover, closed it, unplugged and replugged and got a Paper Jam message. I removed the paper jam and did the cover/plug routine. Now I have a message CHECK PRINTER OPEN AND CLOSE COVER. But I can't find anything wrong! I have been searcing for an explanation of the error message online, but haven't found that either. my printer may be infested by aliens.
The best advice I can give is to reseat the various parts (drum and toners).

Thanks
