HP Office Pro 8600 has a "general printer error"

Office Pro 8600
macOS 10.15 Catalina

My HP 8600 just stopped printer a couple of days ago.  It shows "general printer error" and says there is a problem with the printer or ink system, but no number provided.  You can't get off the error screen.  turning off, unplugging and reversing per solution 1 on the screen does not help.  Any ideas?

@txprint, Welcome to HP Support Community!


If you have already performed the steps from the document Resolving 'Ink System Failure', 'System Supply Problem' Errors and the issue persists, it could be a hardware failure.


Please reach out to the HP Support in your region regarding the service options for your printer.


Hope this helps!
