Cannot get rid of "Jam in output bin. Open rear door and clear jam" error message

HP Recommended
Laser Jet Pro M251nm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am getting an error message that the is a Jam in the output bin.  I have opened the rear door several times and there is no paper jam.  I tried turning off the power and was able to get the error message to reset but it keeps coming back.  I read an old help message and tried disconnecting the power cord and holding the off button for 15 seconds.  It seems to have worked but I think the error message will come back like before.  The customer service tech mentioned sending a PM telling how the reset the printer.  Please send this to me.
