I'm getting the above error message on my pro 6978. The solution listed has nothing to do with this error code. It will not expose the ink cartridges for access. There is no paper jam. What to do?

Try this.

 

Ink buildup or debris on the ink cartridge contacts and vents might cause an ink cartridge error.

  1. Gather the following materials:

    • A pin to clean any clogged vents

    • A clean, lint-free cloth

    • A clean, dry cotton swab

    • Distilled or bottled water

         CAUTION: 

      Do not use tap water because it might contain contaminants that can damage the printhead.

  2. Turn on the printer.

  3. Open the ink cartridge access door.

  4. To remove the ink cartridge, press the tab on the front of the ink cartridge to release it, and then remove it.

    Figure : Example of removing an ink cartridge from the printhead

  5. Place the ink cartridges on a clean piece of paper with the ink opening pointing up.

       CAUTION: 

    Do not leave the ink cartridges outside the printer longer than 30 minutes. Doing so can result in damage to both the printer and the ink cartridges.

  6. If an orange tab is attached to any ink cartridge, remove it.

    Figure : Example of the orange tab

    Example of the orange tab
  7. Examine the vent area located on top of the ink cartridge, next to the HP logo.

    Figure : Example of the vent area

    Example of the vent area
  8. If any of the ink cartridges have clogged vents, use a pin to clean the vents.

    Figure : Example of a clogged vent

    Example of a clogged vent

    Figure : Example of a clean vent

    Example of a clean vent
  9. Use a fresh, lightly dampened, lint-free cloth to wipe any accumulated ink and debris on the copper-colored contact on the ink cartridge.

    Figure : Example of the copper-colored contact on the ink cartridge

    Example of the copper-colored contact on the ink cartridge
  10. Carefully reinsert one of the ink cartridges into its slot, and then push the ink cartridge down and forward until it snaps into place.

    Make sure each colored dot on the ink cartridge label matches the colored dot on the carriage.

    Figure : Reinserting the ink cartridge into the correct slot

    Example of sliding the ink cartridge into the correct slot

    Figure : Example of snapping the ink cartridge into place

     Example of snapping the ink cartridge into place
  11. Run your finger along the top of the ink cartridges to make sure none of them protrude.

    If any ink cartridges protrude, press down firmly until each ink cartridge snaps into place.

  12. Close the ink cartridge access door.

  13. Check the printer control panel display for the error message.

Keep me posted. 🙂

After I loaded three new color cartridges due to being out of colored ink, the above failure code showed up.  I then needed to turn the printer off by the on/off switch which then the printer stated I turned it off wrong with a warning.  Then it stated there is a paper jam - which there was not.  This proceeded several times - after which I also just unplugged the printer still no improvements.
