I have an HP Officejet 6210 All-in-One. When you open the print cartridge access door there is a black toggle switch that needs to be in the depressed position to let the unit know the door is closed. Something was missing from the topside of the "door" so the switch didn't close. I simply stuffed in some foam material to close this, and the unit operates normally. You will need to remove this when changing cartridges, then replace it again.door open , close print cartridge access door - 0a64d2c.jpg

I followed the steps in the above document and when I got to step 3, I found that the metal lever referenced in the document was missing from my printer. I have no idea what happened to it. This metal lever, when present, depresses a contact switch when the cover closes and permits the printer to function. If the metal lever is absent, the contact switch is not depressed and the printer believes the cover is still open.

However, the instructions don't say what to do when the metal lever is missing ... other than service the Printer.

HP technical support was no help. They advised me to buy a new printer. However, I discovered a work around: I unscrewed the two screws in the top of the cover and placed a dab of sticky tack on the contact switch. Then I put a carefully folded square of aluminum foil atop the sticky tack. When I screwed the cover back down, this arrangement pushed down on the contact switch and the printer resumed function.

Hope this helps someone else with the same issue.

SOURCE: Error message "cover door is open or printer cartridge is missing"

Try to find the latch in the cover that presses a switch to indicate it is closed it is usually a small stick projection at the sides of the cover. Replace the cartridge it should fit snuggly then try it again.

SOURCE: i changed my ink cartridge, but the top cover

Lift the printer cover. There is a slot on the right side by the ink cartridges. Push the end of your little finger into the slot. Close the lid. I know this sounds lame, but it has helped me many times. It seems the latch will stick and this usually unsticks it.

SOURCE: door open. Close print cartridge access door

There is a small sensor that detects "door open".
If that sensor is broken/malfunctioning, then you will get the indicator at the "wrong" time.
Check that sensor -- see if you can "jam" it into the "closed" position.

Solution Replace the indicated ink cartridge(s), or press OK on the control panel to continue. HP recommends the use of genuine HP ink cartridges. Genuine HP ink cartridges are designed and tested with HP printers to help produce great results, time after time.
NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. Printer service or repairs required as a result of printer failure or damage due to the use of non-HP ink will not be covered under warranty. Follow these steps to replace the depleted HP ink cartridge(s). Step one: Replace the indicated cartridge(s)
  1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is turned on.
    NOTE: The Attention light blinks when the product is turned on.
  2. Open the access door by lifting from the front center of the HP All-in-One, until the door locks into place. Figure 1: Opening the access door c01079714.jpg
  3. Squeeze the bottom of the latch below the ink cartridge to replace, and then lift the latch.
    • To replace the black ink cartridge, lift the latch on the far left.
    • To replace one of the five color ink cartridges, such as yellow, light cyan (blue), cyan, light magenta (pink), or magenta, lift the appropriate latch in the center area.
    Figure 2: Lifting the latch c01079715.jpg 1 - Ink cartridge latch for the black ink cartridge 2 - Ink cartridge latches for the color ink cartridges
  4. Pull the ink cartridge towards you out of its slot to remove it. Figure 3: Removing the ink cartridge c01079716.jpg
  5. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging.
  6. Holding the new ink cartridge by the handle, push the ink cartridge into the empty slot. Match the color and pattern of the ink cartridge to the color and pattern on the print carriage. Figure 4: Inserting the new cartridge c01079717.jpg
  7. Close the latch, and make sure it is secure. c01079718.jpg
  8. Close the access door. Figure 5: Closing the access door c01079719.jpg
Step two: Align the new ink cartridge(s)
  1. Make sure paper is loaded in the input tray, and then press the OK button. The HP All-in-One prints the alignment page, aligns the printhead, and initializes the ink cartridges. This takes approximately 5 minutes. CAUTION: Do not disconnect or turn off the HP All-in-One during this time. You may hear the HP All-in-One making noises.
  2. Check the display for status, and then press the OK button. Recycle or discard the alignment page.
Cause The original HP ink in the indicated ink cartridge(s) has been depleted.
