HP OFFICEJET PRO 6978

This printer was just taken out of the box and during set up is stops and says there is a paper jam in the document feeder. There is no paper in there and it has never had paper in it yet. I can not get past this in the set up. This was a gift and I do not have the receipt.

@HD541, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

Check for any packaging materials or plastics inside the printer.

 

Kindly perform the steps mentioned in this document - A 'Paper Jam' Error Displays

Also, check the document feeder area as shown in this document - ADF does not pick paper or feeds in too many sheets

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
