Fix HP Printer Error 2


HP Printers are the most widely used printers at homes, home offices, and offices. These are affordable printers that serve multi-functions like print, copy, scan, fax etc. However, in spite of being a reputed brand, the HP printers are not without their technical faults. One basic problem that users face while using the HP printer is the printer error, represented by a numeric code. There are various numeric codes representing different errors. One common HP printer error is error code 2. Let us know in this article why this error 2 occurs and how to resolve the issue.


An E2 error appears when the HP printer tries to print a single-page or multi-page print job, and the length of the paper chosen in the print settings is not the same as the length of the paper loaded in the tray. So, when the print command is given, the first page comes with errors. You will see the Error icon, Paper Error icon, and Resume light blinking when such an error occurs.
