Side cover open

I have a side cover open warning. The cover is closed. Is there a switch that I can over ride? Or is there something I don't know to do?

Thanks Chopper

Yes there is a cover switch, but if this is a new printer, changed it under warranty, but if this problem occurred now you have to find a problem, why this door won't close correctly. the cover switch is located on the left side if the cover

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.

My konica bizhub 163 gives massage 1st side cover open close 1st side cover,how do i clear the massage. pliz help me.

1st Side cover is front cover.The cover which you use to open to install or check toner bottle.When you close that cover and machine gives caution then it means cover is not properly closed
The 1st side cover switch is not working properly.
There is a knob at the end of the front cover, make sure it it aligned with the switch.
Front cover Micro Switch can be dirty due to toner spilling/dropping inside the machine.Clean it and then recheck.

My Toshiba e-studio 233 copier is giving the error message, "Close side cover." Opening any cover to close again changes the message to "Close x" where x is the part opened, until that...

there is a switch at the side that is being push by the cover when it closes check this switch to be sure it hits the button when close or you may replace the switch it has a problem.

Make sure that all off the covers and doors are properly closed.
If you are sure that everything is closed you probably have a faulty switch or a broken gate in the bottom tray.
See you!

Look at either side of the flip-up cover. While I am not familiar with Lexmark printers, I have seen this problem in the HP 6800 & 6900 series. There should be on one side (my guess would be closest to the 'rest' position of the ink carriage) some sort of switch to detect cover position. In the HP printers, the switch is 'down' when the cover is open; so, if the little lever that would lift the switch to the 'up/closed' position if broken, the switch stays in the down position and the printer thinks the cover is open. Look for something along these lines.

Keeps stating cover open close cover

Hello my friend.First check the Switch activator (hangs down on left side of Top Cover),second check output voltages on the low voltage power supply and if has problem replace the high voltage power supply.Also you can try replace system cable but if its the error still appears its more like a hardware problem like the system board and you must replace it or take your printer to a repair service but i think you may accidentally push the switch or broke it somehow.
