I can't close the front manual feed slot

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your printer?

Epson 3880

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Epson printer?

Just happened when trying to figure out (which I didn't) how to load the front manual feed slot.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the Operating System (OS) on the computer or device you're printing from?

I don't think that's the problem. I think it's mechanical

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

Help! I can't close the front manual feed slot
