Hi there is seems that the machine thinks there is too much paper at the paper printout exit. If there are printouts on the top of the printer remove them and the printer will start printing or the error message will go away. If there is nothing on top of the printer then where the paper comes out after it has printed you will see a black plastic lever type it is more likely to be in the up position without breaking it if it hasn't already been broken move it so it is in the down position it is on a hinge so be careful and it should sit at an angle. Once this has been done the printer will reset the message itself.
Hope this is help you oh if the arm is broken it will need replacing (just the arm)

Firstly, is the exit bin full of paper? If it is, just remove it.
If not, then it's going to be a sensor that recognizes the paper amounts in the exit tray. Check for broken plastics and possibly stuck plastic flaps in the exit tray.
If it's neither of those, try turn it off, unplug, then reverse.
Other than that, if no go, then it's an internal sensor issue. At that point, probably the best bet is to replace as repair costs would outweight a new unit cost most likely.

Check the sensor flag where the paper exits the printer and make sure it is not stuck in the "up" position. This is a small black plactic flap right in the center of where the paper exits. When this flap is up it tells the printer that this area is full. HP says to "flip" the sensor flag up and down to make sure it is not stuck.

Is this occurring even with no paper in the face down top bin? Likely a stuck paper sensor flag, or dirty optical sensor. You need to remove the top to access it, investigate and replace the flag or sensor, or clean the optical sensor.

You can download the PDF free - dont make people selling copyrighted material on ebay rich.
Top cover isnt that hard to remove and requires patience and a #2 phillips screwdriver. Be careful of the cable for the display and buttons when you lift the cover off.
