Your lid sensor maybe broken.
to check open the printer like you would when you put new ink in and you will see a white sticking down from the lid on the right side. what that does is depresses a switch which tells the printer if the lid is closed or open. if you put your hand under the tab and feel in the hole if the you feel a tab there and it moves and then springs back in position then it is ok but if it is not there or doesn't spring back then the printer is shot.
also call lexmark if it is there but keeps coming up saying lid is open, and they will walk you through some quick fixes that may or may not fix it.

    Cartridges error on a lexmark

    Error: "Invalid Toner Cartridge"; Error: "Invalid Refill"; Message: "Change Cartridge"
    Solution
    One of these error messages may appear on the printer display immediately after or shortly after a new toner cartridge is installed into the printer. Note: This may not be specifically a toner cartridge problem; the error may be due to a stuck cover open switch on the printer.

    To see if the cover open switch is the cause of this problem, open the top front cover and observe the message on the printer's display panel. The display should read Close Door or Insert Cartridge.


    If this message is not displayed, the top cover open sensor and switch will need to be replaced. In addition, the printer may have damaged the new toner cartridge. If the cover open sensor is not operating properly, a new cartridge can be incorrectly flagged as a refilled cartridge by the printer. If this happens, the new cartridge will continue to cause an Invalid Refill or Invalid Cartridge error even if you try reinstalling it or installing it into another printer. If this should occur, please contact the point of purchase of the cartridge to find out how to get the cartridge replaced.

    Caution: If the cover open sensor is not operating, do not install another new toner cartridge until you have completed the directions below. Inserting another new cartridge can cause that cartridge to stop working as well. Should this situation arise, please take the following actions:


    Place the original working cartridge (the empty or near-empty one) back into the printer. This should clear the error message.

    Turn the printer off. Doing this will disengage the cover open sensor.

    With the printer switched off, open the top lid and remove the old toner cartridge.

    Now replace the old cartridge with another new Lexmark toner cartridge.

    Power the printer back on. The printer should now read this cartridge as a newly installed toner cartridge and the error should be cleared. The printer and toner cartridge should function properly now, but the top cover sensor on the printer will still need to be replaced.

    If your printer is still under warranty or covered under a service contract, please contact Lexmark Technical Support or your service provider for further recommendations and instructions. Until you can get the cover open switch replaced, remember to have the printer powered off whenever you replace the toner cartridge.

    If the top cover switch appears to be working fine, or if you have followed the above steps and your printer continues to post an Invalid Toner Cartridge or Invalid Refill error, make sure you are using a new original Lexmark toner cartridge. A toner cartridge remanufactured or refilled by a third party can cause this error.

    To help identify a refilled cartridge, look for the yellow label attached to the toner drum and the body of the toner cartridge. If this is damaged or removed, the cartridge may have been refilled.

    If you are using a third-party refilled or remanufactured toner cartridge, it is recommended that you install a new Lexmark brand toner cartridge. Lexmark cannot guarantee the compatibility of any third-party toner cartridges with our printers.

    OR

    1 Switch on the Lexmark X83 printer.

    2 Lift open the cartridge door at the front of the device, below the scanner unit. The printer automatically moves the cartridge carrier to the correct position.

    3 Pull each ink cartridge toward you to unclasp it from the carrier. Lift the cartridge out of the cartridge carrier.

    4 Clean the copper contacts on the bottom of each cartridge with a clean, dry lint-free cloth. Use a gentle, circular motion to clean the contacts.

    5 Insert the ink cartridges back into the cartridge carrier. Push back firmly on each cartridge until it snaps into place.

    6 Repeat each step in this procedure again. Close the cartridge door.

    When I try to print, I get the error: Top Cover Open: The printer cannot print because the top cover is open. How do I fix this?

    Hi cduckyquack ,

    • All you need to do is close the printer cover if it's open , once it's closed you should be able to print correctly without any warning messages.
    • If the cover is closed and still you are getting the same message , then it might be a problem with the censor switch which indicates to the printer whether or not the cover is open, so if the switch / sense has gone faulty then you need to repair it.
    • Sometimes just because of dust the printer does not sense the cover being closed and it results in the error message that you have described.
    • Hope this helps ...) your feedback would be appreciated.

    C4180 HP PRINTER GIVING ME AN ERROR MESSAGE OF "CLEAR PAPER JAM , THEN PRESS OK." THERE IS NO PAPER JAM.

    This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

    Error message 'top cover open' even while cover is closed

    When the printer is used often, and ink and dust accumulate inside, the detector switch will sometimes get stuck and won't be depressed by the cover correctly. Open the cover and look right next to the sticker. There is a small rectangular hole with the switch. Use a very thin tool like a small screwdriver or paperclip bent open to push the switch inside the hole to the back of the printer. Do NOT push it just down! You *must* move the switch away from you. Hold the switch in this position and close the cover. Carefully pull out your tool from the gap.

    How do I fix a paper jam? I've got paper jam around the exit roller and I can't get it out?

    There should be a way to unlock one of the sides. Try taking out the toner cartridge and going in that way. If you can see the paper, get a pair of needle nose pliers and SLOWLY see if you can pull the paper out.

    Need to fix urgently lexmark x3470 cover open error. in images if possible.

    open operator panel (top piece with electronic display) lift up cartridge cover (the one you lift to change cartridges) there is a small black plastic lever which you can manually move up and down with your finger (usually on left side). take a piece of tape and TAPE IT DOWN so that it can not pop up again (popping up is what triggers the error message (cover open) even when it is closed.
    after you tape it down you will never see this error message again, even with the cover up.
    who needs a machine to tell you a cover is open? we can SEE this with the human eye.
    it is a useless feature. also, check device manager (com ports) to make sure there are no yellow explanation marks (port error) or no printer will work on it. you may have to make a change in bios to assign the port manually to make sure there are no conflicts with the port. nancynerd
