Hi,

Often, this would just be the sensor falsely thinking that the cover B is still open. You could try checking if the cover is slightly misaligned hence the tab is not triggering the senor/switch. Or try opening and closing and making sure that you hear/feel the latching of the switch.

Better yet, perhaps the parts diagram may be of better help. You would probably be interested likewise in the service manual.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I changed the ink in my Lexmark 3400 printer and I keep getting an error message "cover open" and it's not open. I tried everything....unloading the software then reloading the software, shutting it off...


The printer displays a 'Cover open, please close cover' error message, even though the cover is closed.

This can happen if the lever on the cover open sensor is knocked off the switch assembly.

I have a service req E527 error on my Epson printer. how to fix?


To fix the E527 error, close the front panel (cover A) and open the top cover (cover B). With the photoconductor unit removed, the toner carousel will rotate. It only rotates if cover A is closed all the way. You can easily rotate the carousel to a position where you can remove/reinstall the stuck toner cartrdige. report_dis_text_13954 = 'We\'re sorry but you must be signed in to report inappropriate material.

Hi there

This suggests a fuser error. This is the hot unit at the rear top of the machine.

Steps are as follows:-

1. Open COVER FUSER.
2. Draw out the COVER RH boss from the hole on COVER FUSER while pushing
COVER RH outward, and remove COVER FUSER.

After removal check coninuity across heater lamp amd thermistor terminals. If either shows anyhing more than 13 Ohms then you need to replace your fuser unit.

Anything more than that requires hands on technical expertise.

Good luck

cover "B" should be on the back of the printer. when you open the main back door at the bottom there is a little flap that will fall down, this is a sliht design flaw as you have to make sure that this is in an upright position before closing the main back door. from past experience its usualy hit and miss at getting it to work unfortunatly

hope this hepls

Look for the switch on the rear cover above the fuser. It is often this switch this gets bent out of the way and causes the error.

Get a service manual HERE if you need to take the switch out or see which ones are interconnected

B door open


There are two switches, so if you changed the one that was working....

Possible parts affected could be
- cover top
- cover fuser
- cover front assembly
- the switch
1) check the condition of the cover - top, front assembly and cover fuser closed?
2) on the cover top there is an "actuator", a plastic bit, which presses down on the switch assembly top - is that plastic bit broken, bent or deformed?
3) on the cover front assembly there is also an "actuator", check this
4) and of course same for the fuser cover
5) top cover, check the switch, disconnect the switch (P116-1) and press/release it - does that make a difference. If not replace switch
6) same procedure with the switch (P115-1) for front cover.
