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.

Green power light is flashing for no apparent reason


Solution

Close the cover.

Cause

Printer cover is open. Solution

Insert appropriate media in the In tray.

Cause

The printer is out of paper. Solution

  • Change the printer's print mode setting.
  • Change the printer's paper type selection.
  • Use a different brand of label media.


Cause

The printer has difficulty picking up label media. Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove the paper from both paper trays.
  2. Press the power button once. Wait a moment for the paper jam to clear.
  3. If printing labels, verify that a label did not become detached while passing through the printer. If the paper jam was not resolved, continue on to the next steps.
  4. Remove the rear access door.
  5. Remove the paper jam through the opening at the back of the printer.
  6. Replace the rear access door.
  7. Reload the paper into the paper In tray.
  8. Print the document.


Cause

There is a paper jam. Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.
  2. Clean the print cartridges automatically using the Clean Cartridges option in the Printer Assistant.
  3. Manually clean the print cartridges and print cartridge cradles:
    • Open the printer cover and wait until the carriage moves to the center.
    • Press the Power button to turn off the printer.
    • Disconnect power cord from the back of the printer.
    • Remove the print cartridges and place them on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up.
    • Lightly moisten a cotton swab with distilled water.
    • Clean the face and edges of the print cartridges with the swab. Do not touch the print cartridge ink nozzles or copper contacts.
    • Wipe the underside of the print cartridge cradle walls using a clean, moistened swab.
    • Reinsert the print cartridges.
    • Close the printer cover.
    • Connect the power cord to the back of the printer.
    • Press the Power button to turn on the printer.
  4. Calibrate the print cartridges.
  5. If the light is still flashing, replace the print cartridges.


Cause

There is a problem with a print cartridge. Solution

  1. Print a printer self-test by holding the power button down with a pencil and opening and closing the top cover four times.
  2. Check the nozzle self-test pattern in the self-test print out. If one or more of the solid rectangular areas are missing, an electrical contact problem may be present.
  3. Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.
  4. Print the document.
  5. If the problem persists, follow the steps listed above for cleaning the print cartridges and print cartridge cradle.
  6. Try printing again. If the problem continues, replace the print cartridges.


Cause

The print cartridge has partial loss of electrical interface with the carriage connections.

Error Code problem


My mother's printer had a similar problem, I was able to find this solution on the HP site.

Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the printer, but leave the printer turned on.

Open the cover of the printer 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 printer and wait for one minute.

Reconnect the power cord. If the printer 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.

I hope this helps you too...
