@Loisw1 Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that you are getting the message that the cover is open.

 

To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:

 

Any hardware changes made in the Sprocket?

 

Reset the Sprocket with a straight pin to clear any errors.

  1. Turn on the Sprocket.

  2. Remove the paper cover by sliding it away from the output slot, and then set it aside.

    1. Slide the paper cover

    2. Remove the paper cover

  3. Locate the Reset button.

  4. Gently insert a straight pin into the reset button access point, and then press the Reset button for 3 seconds.
