Printer cover open error message

I recently changed the ink cartridge so of course in order to do that I had to open the printer cover so now whenever I try to print, it keeps saying that I need to close the printer cover. Of course the printer cover is closed but it keeps saying it's open therefore I'm unable to print anything. Can you help?

I had that problem too.

Unplug the printer.
Hold the printer cover open while you plug in the printer.
Then wait for the printer to power on while still holding the cover open.
Then close the cover.
The buttons should work and th error message should be gone.

It worked for me.

I have a hp business jet 2230. i had the same error message and tried to close the main lid many times, including power off and on and then closing it and it didnt work.

What worked was opening the lid where the catridges are and slamming it shut. I tried 3 times before the printer finally consented to the fact that it was indeed closed...

My ink cartridges are full but when I print something it does not print blue or green. What can I do?


Assuming you've recently changed your ink cartridges the first thing you can try is seeing if you've placed the cartridges properly (did you remove all the plastic covering the cartridge so the ink can flow into the printer?)

If you haven't actually changed your cartridges in a while the printer might be registering the wrong ink levels. This will result in your cartridges not being as full as you think.

Another thing you could try is checking the printer head for anything that's keeping the ink from flowing. By printer head I mean the thingy that houses your ink cartridges. Perhaps there's some old dried up ink blocking the way?

I have tried replacing all ink cartridges with brand new ones but it keeps saying Error U052 ? I am not really sure why it won't recognize the ink cartridges especially because they are from Canon


The error code indicated, the print head is defective, so it will not get solve by replacing any number of cartridges. Just follow the steps below to reseat the print head, if that does not help, then replace the print head.

  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on and press the <Open> button. (The paper output tray will open.)

  2. Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) completely. (The print head will move to the replacement position.)

    mp500_scanningunit_open.gif

    Note: When the scanning unit (printer cover) is opened more than ten minutes, the print head moves to the right side. If this occurs, close the scanning unit (printer cover), and open it again.

  3. Open the inner cover.

  4. Remove the ink tanks by pressing the tab of each tank.


    Caution: Handle the ink tanks with care so that your clothes and surrounding area do not get soiled. Make sure to remove the ink tanks one by one.

  5. Raise the print head lock lever.

  6. Tilt the print head slightly towards the front of the machine and lift out gently.

Ink Tank Lamp indications

You can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.

- On: The printer is ready to print.

- Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.

- Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.

- Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.

I changed my ink but it wont let me print it keeps saying i need to change my ink why?


What is the version of your ink cartridge? It could be that it's not seated properly in the cartridge carrier. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet in the wall to reset it. When the printer turns on, open the printer cover and reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover. If no error, open the printer cover and reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. You could also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

INK CARTRIDGES ALL NEW. SAYING THEY ARE EMPTY


Hi, i think during the process of changing the cartridges, the top lid on the ink cartridge that clips or keys the cartridge down inside the printer has been broken and needs to be replaced.

I suggest you get a technician to help get a replacement for this. With this your printer should be in other.

Did you replace the ink cartridge with a new one, or did you refill an old one.

Some printers have a memory and can tell which ink cartridge is in them. This prevents them from easily being fooled into printing with refilled cartridges.

Another option is that you changed the ink cartridge without following the specific guidelines for replacement e.g. To replace the ink cartridge, select replace ink cartridge from the main menu, then open the printer panel when the light flashes X number of times.

You might also try unplugging the printer for a couple of minutes the reset it.

Installed black ink but hp psc 750 keeps saying install colour and i only have black ink. Can you operate this printer without colour in.


Print cartridge
When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.
Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
1. Open the top cover of the printer.
2. Remove the print cartridges.
3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth. Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Try printing again.
If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .

Print head


That is a strange message unless you have changed the print head recently (or it has become defective). The first thing I would do is try reseating the print head.
Unplug the printer.
1) Remove the 5 ink cartridges.
2) Lift the lever that is just to the left of where the ink cartridges sit. This is the print head lock level.
3) The print head is located under the ink cartridges (if they were still there) lift it out carefully.
4) Inspect for damage but do not touch anything or it can cause problems.
5) Carefully replace print head and lower level until it clicks
6) Replace ink cartridges
Plug in the printer and test.

If you still have a problem -
Call 1 (800) 828-4040 for warranty part replacement or to order a part out of warranty.

I had a problem with one of my Epson ink cartriges and called the company and they replaced it for free. Also many companies that sell knock off ink cartridges now have fixed the problem and now they are recognized by the printer.
