Question about Brother MFC-7820N Printer
I keep getting a message that says BACK COVER OPEN. PLEASE CLOSE BACK COVER. I have looked all around this printer and I do not see anything open. I have tried everything. Open and closed every compartment I can. I have even shut off the printer waited and turned it back on. Nothing seems to work.
I had the same error message. I also tried every compartment... Here's ultimately what my problem/solution was...
I turned the printer around and fully opened the back cover. I found that one of my kids had somehow fed a small piece of paper/cardboard into the printer. When I opened the back cover all the way I could see that obstruction (which I hadn't seen before). Pulled it out, and the error message went away. Works fine now.

This is the most useless response - what switch? which door? what do you mean by "put a piece of paper in" - it's a printer, there is paper all over the place. Can you be more specific, please.
