“The door or cover must be closed to print”

I recently bought an HP Deskjet 1050, a combined inkjet printer and scanner. I inserted the cartridges, but it wouldn’t print. It always gave me the error message “the door or cover must be closed to print” though, it seemed to me, the door was firmly closed.

After googling a bit I found the solution. What I had closed was the output tray, which has to be open for printing. The actual door is inside. In my model, the output tray is anthracite like the rest of the case, while the door is a light gray.

I’m posting this here just in the hope that someone with the same problem will know what to do.
