Service Error 79 on my laser printer

HP Recommended
macOS 12.0 Monterey

I own a HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281cdw.  After it initializes it crashes after about 30 seconds with Service Error code 79.  I tried to unplug it to restart and cleared the printer queue on my computer but it just keeps crashing,  recycles, crashes in an ongoing cycle.
