Keeps saying cover is open/ please close the ADF cover


The message indicates that the printer door or the cover located on the top is not closed properly, so you need to re-open the door or the printer cover and close it accurately.

Hi, Try taking out all cartridges, unplug the printer a few minutes.
re plug , turn on. with ink cover open. then close cover and wait to follow the install prompts, This should reset the printer.
be sure to gently push the cartridges till each one clicks.Close cover.
Please let me know if this helps!

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.

The cover open signal comes on when the printer is turned on even tho the cover is securely closed. Can I bypass this cover open warning as the printer works when this light is not on.


Find where the switch that detects if the cover is open or closed is. Once you find it see if it is stuck in a position that tells the printer it's open. If for some reason it is broken, try placing an object that will press down the switch and tell the printer it's closed.

Message 'Clean Sensor' has appeared. Followed advise to open Cover D and close it again but to no avail. Has anyone got any other suggestions, please?


Follow the steps below to clear the "Clean Sensor" error message.
  1. Open the front cover of the printer (cover D). c2600_cover_d.jpg
  2. Slowly close the cover again. c2600_close_cover_d.jpg This action will move the lever shown below and clean the sensor.

  3. Open and close the cover several times. Once the front cover is left closed the printer will start to calibrate.
Once complete, the error should no longer appear and the printer should resume normal operation.

Note: If the error message is still apparent after following the steps above, contact Epson for further advice.

Error mesage


No solution, but I have the same problem. THe printer starts up fine, I hear no grinding noises or other "funny" nioses, and then displays no error message... UNTIL I ask it to print. Then I get a message that says, "Pls (please) Open Cover".

I open the cover and it says "Please Close Cover".

I close the cover and it says, "Please Open Cover"

and this happens forever!

Does anyone have any ideas? Can anyone help me?

Close top cover


Start by trying this.
Open the cover and look around for openings in the where the cover closes. In those openings there are interlock switches. 1 of 2 things have happened.
1, The switch may have become dislodged.
2. Look on the cover you have opened for actuators, ( pieces of plastic sticking out) that would go into those holes to turn the switch on when closed. Those often break off.
One of those 2 items is your problem, The switch is just not being actuated properly.
Make sure nothing is binding the cover also.

Printer cover open error message


I had that problem too.

Unplug the printer.
Hold the printer cover open while you plug in the printer.
Then wait for the printer to power on while still holding the cover open.
Then close the cover.
The buttons should work and th error message should be gone.

It worked for me.
