The B-882 has two drive mechanisms. It differes from the B-482 because the rear drive has also a seperate opening mechanism. It is the green lever about half way back from the normal head open lever.

If you are sure that after putting in labels the head knob has been completely turned clockwise, thus locking the head in operating position, then most probably your head sensor is defective.
In this model it is, if I remember correctly, a small microswitch located to the left of the head assembly; a steel slider attached to the assembly moves down with the head, pressing a small metal "tongue" on the microswitch, which in turn presses a tiny prong sticking out of the microswitch. It looks similar to this:
The tongue sometimes falls off due to wear and tear. If this is the case, a temporary solution is to insert a toothpick or something similar to press this tiny prong on the microswitch, which will let you print, and order a serviceperson to replace this sensor.

I get an 'open-head' message. All sensors seem to be in the right place

There is a micro switch at the back which is responsible for this error.
Either you strap it or place the lever at the top position
