the cartridge accesss door on Envy 7640 will not open

HP Envy 7640

I've replaced ink cartridges in the past with no problem. Today I tried to lift the cartridge access door and it appears to be 'locked'.

Welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

Let's try to reset the Printer here:

 

Turn the printer on, if it is not already on.

  1. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.
  2. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  4. Wait at least 60 seconds.
  5. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  6. NOTE: HP recommends connecting the printer power cord directly to the wall outlet.
  7. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  8. Turn on the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.
  9. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you proceed.

Also, try connecting the Printer to a different wall outlet directly.

 

Let's try a printer firmware update: https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c02919168

 

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks for your suggestions. I had already tried these from previous posts. In the end, I followed an old suggestion to 'force' it open. I did and it worked. So was able to change the cartridges. So far, good. Thanks
