Question about HP Officejet J5780 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I just installed ink cartridge and closed top cover to align the print cartridges but screen says to close print cartridge access door
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
