Why doesn’t that red light stop flashing on that printer?

    kurt:~> scli -c "show printer covers"
    Printer:      1
    Cover:        1
    Description:  Rear Door
    Status:       coverOpen

    Printer:      1
    Cover:        2
    Description:  Top Door
    Status:       coverClosed

    So, that’s easy. Tell your user: “Please shut that darn Rear Door again
and the flashing red light will go away.”
