Cover open sensor is knocked off the switch assembly - Please show and tell me how I can repair it.

Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges. Make sure the cartridges are properly inserted in the carrier and the lids snap in.

Cover open samsung scx-4521f

There is probably a broken sensor on your printer. Try to open and close the cover some times it works. If not you need to bring it to samsung technician for fixing it.

Printer says cover is open when its not

Remove the cartridges from the printer, then close the covers. Unplug the printer from the power source. Plug it back in after 10-15 seconds. Check if "cover is open" message is still coming up on the display. If yes, the cover sensor may have gotten stuck when you opened the printer to change the cartridges. Try to exercise the lever to release the tension. If problem persists, I advise you to call Lexmark. If not, proceed on reloading the cartridges. Close the covers. Let it print the alignment page all the way through without cancelling it. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Printer cover open

hi im josh in cebu phils. may i help you?
Friend if the printer states that the printer cover is open. it means that the cover of the printer is open or not locked. the cover above the cartridge is the one mentioned.
1. Be sure to lock or closed the printer cover before printing because if it is open it will not print because the software automatically detect the unclosed part of the printer.
2. check whether the hinges is safely attached it can be found in the printer cover side attached to the body of the printer.
3. try to see if there are some pieces of papers attached or stuck in the cover that's why it detects uncover.
4. clean the cover with soft cloth remove the dust and other dirt.
5. Reboot the pc if the solutions 1-4 is already performed and still warns the problem.
6. Lastly reinstall the printer software CD if the solutions1-5 is already performed and the problem stills occur.
Good luck friend hope i helped you.

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?

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.
