HP laser printer shows ER5

Hello, thank you for using Howly.
Can you please specify both the brand and the model of your device?

HP laser jet pro MFP M28-M31


Got it.
What troubleshooting have you done so far?

Customer Replay

have not done anything, don't know what to do

Okay, no problem!
An Er/04, Er/05, or Er/06 error message on your device indicates a paper jam.
Find and clear the printer of any jammed paper.
If you can not find any jammed paper, please let me know.

Customer Replay

I found the paper and removed need to get the cartridge back in.
got it it's now working. Did not see the paper jam before when I looked. Thank you.
