    Incredible. Tapping the top of the control panel works.

    Again, tapping the contrl panel seems to have resolved it (but for how long?)

Don't unscrew anything, a light knock on top of the control panel with a finger resolves the problem everytime for me after closing the cover

Had the same problem and found it was due to a failure of the plastic lever inside the printer that generates the cover open signal. Give away is that the left hand side of the top cover is slightly higher than the right.
Solution depends whether you are in warranty or want to fork out for a service repair. If not, the way I found to solve this was to take off the control panel (there's one screw on the top that you need a 2.5mm Allan Key to take off, then the panel can be prised off carefully). This reveals a grey plastic vertical activator on the left inside of the printer case which needs to be knobbled so that it's in the up position. Once you've put everything back together, you'll not get an indication when the top cover is open, but at least the printer will print.

Yup, that suggestion also works fine for me. Don't start unscrewing stuff until you've tried it.

Retira el panel frontal quitando previamente el tornillo superior.
Verás una pieza de plástico gris que se debe elevar al presionar la pestaña de la tapa en un pequeño rectángulo en la zona izquierda.

Esta pieza se atasca y deja de deslizarse suavemente y por ello el sensor no detecta la tapa cerrada. Para evitar esto pon dos gotitas de aceite con la ayuda de un palillo en las guías de la pieza que desliza verticalmente y verás que ahora se mueve suave. Monta el panel, el tornillo y listo.

Message keeps saying "Cover is Open" and I get a red exclamation at top right corner of the printer. The cover, however, is NOT open and the printer is not responding. Help would be most appreciated. Thak...


I have had this problem also and have found that instead of "dropping the cover hard" I can just give the "sensor area" on the left side of the cover a sharp rap with my finger and the light goes off.
