I have the same error on my new printer.  Looking carefully at the back cover i think there is meant to be a trigger to tell the camera when it is closed but for some reason it isnt doing its job correctly.

    Welcome to HP forums, I see that you are getting “paper cover is open” error.
    Replace the paper cover, and then resend the print job.
