the cover will not close
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

check the sides and the lock there must be some kind of paper piece or foreign object blocking he closing lock use a flash light or tap the printer from the ouside wall where there must be something stuck and that will get removed by tapping.

WHAT DO U MEAN BY THE LOCK WE HAVE CHECKED HINGES NOTHING STUCK
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.

if you have checked hinges and lock which sits fine and you still get the error that means one on the sensor is bad and that is a hardware fault due to which you are getting the error.

Printer would need a repair tech to get the sensor identified and replace it.
