HP Deskjet F2430 paper light blinking error

HP Deskjet F2400 All-in-One series
macOS 10.12 Sierra

The yellow warning light for paper on the printer keeps blinking even though there is paper in it. I've already tried resetting it and cleaning and it's still doing the same thing. I also get a message saying "Printer is in an error state" on my computer. What can i do to fix it?
