LP is low pressure for the refrigerant charge or the pressure switch is remaining open. This has nothing to do with flow error. An HVAC person can check the freon for you and if low they can add charge to it. But first check the pressure switch to be sure it has not failed. It can also be a clogged evaporator coil.
