1/30/2015 I purchased a factory sealed HP Officejet Pro 8610e
printer. It had never before had ink or paper installed into it.
After turning in to and following the typical scripts, an error popped
up: "door cover open". So I called HP and all their support
numbers had been discontinued and proceeded with the message, "to
contact support please go to the web
where you will get options and support. Apparently this is another
new product and it was almost impossible to even find a chat support
connection. After about 20 minutes I was finally able to get
through the maze and this is the chat scrupt that followed:
