02 – Warming Up
This HP printer problem is commonly associated with driver or printer cable problems. Turn the printer off and on then this error message should disappear. If this doesn`t work. Turn off the printer and take out the power cable for 30 seconds, remove the printer cable and turn it back on.
An E1 or E2 error indicates that the paper size setting does not match the paper size that is loaded.
Quick fix. Error code e02 occurs due to overheating of the printhead or when the paper is not correctly placed into the input tray and therefore the paper feed rollers are unable to pick up the paper from the paper tray.
The 98.02. 02 code indicates that a disk wipe operation was successfully completed. This is an intentional security procedure that is performed on these models every time the power is turned off and then back on.
Solution. Error 2 is a network error code produced by Windows NT that generically translates to: “The system cannot find the file specified.”
An E2 error occurs when the printer attempts to print a single-page or multi-page print job, and the paper length selected in the print settings does not match the length of the loaded paper.
Check for obstructions in the carriage path
Open the cartridge access door to get to the carriage inside the printer. Make sure the carriage is not obstructed by gently sliding the carriage side to side. Look for and remove any obstructions in the carriage path, such as crumpled paper or dislodged labels.
There may be a problem with the Main Control Board, the User Interface (Touchpad), or the associated wiring. Power unit down by turning off the circuit breaker(s) for one (1) minute. Power unit up by turning on the circuit breaker(s). Start a time dry cycle.
The yellow tape seal has not been removed from the ink cartridge. Turn off the printer, then turn it on again. The ink out lights come on and the print head moves left. Replace the ink cartridge with a new one.

Sometimes turning off and on will allow you to print a few pages. The error is a beam detect error. The only real fix is to replace the laser scanner unit. Could be a loose connector on the scanner or DC controller from the scanner. That’s unlikely. You could try the only other free fix which is to open the scanner assy. and clean all the mirrors inside. The dust could obstruct the laser beam enough to cause the detect error.
