Customer Question

I have a canon mp640. Whenever I try printing from my MAc, I get the beginning of the page to print then there is an interruption and a signal appears claiming that the inner cover is open. No matter how much I fiddle with it, open and close and seemingly ready, as soon as I try to print the signal comes on again. Is this a sensor
JA: Has your Canon done this before? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Its been doing this for about one month. It is no longer useable.
JA: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?
Customer: MAC with OS 10.11.6
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: I did not have an issue before the printer interrupted its print job.
JA: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

Sorry for the delay, we are busy and I've just got to your question.
How long has this been happening?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Kris, I have it working now both as a copier and as a printer. I fiddled with the inner flap in front of the machine. Is the offer for refund still good?
Expert:  Kris R replied 1 month ago.

Yes of course, you can get a full refund or If you'd like I can connect and tune up your PC and check all your printer settings for you to prevent any future problems, entirely up to you.
