I am getting a Printer Failure code. It says it is because the printer was improperly shut down. It gave an error code of 0x6100004a
@David2813, Welcome to the HP Support Community!
Let us try these steps to resolve this issue:
Reset the printer
Note: HP recommends connecting the printer directly to a wall outlet rather than a surge protector or a power strip.
Check for obstructions in the carriage path
With the printer on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
Open the door to access the carriage inside of the printer.
Look in the carriage path for debris such as crumpled paper or dislodged labels, and then remove any that you find.
Use your hand to move the carriage to each side, making sure it moves freely. If the carriage is stalled or docked to one side of the printer and you cannot move it, continue with these steps.
Close the carriage access door.
Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer, and then turn the printer on.

If the error persists, I'm afraid this could be a hardware issue. Please reach out to the HP Support in your region regarding the service options for your printer.
