Hi and Welcome to Just Answer/Pearl, my name is Mike and will be assisting you with your issue today. Please rate my answer at the end of the session.

Please could you take a very good look inside your printer. Often this can occur when a piece of packaging material has been left inside the printer by accident. It could be perhaps a little piece of tape etc within the printer. Check all access doors for this and let me know.

Sometimes this message can be caused by a defective printer with a bad sensor but we will cover everything else before that determination is made.

Please advise, Thanks Mike
