We just received a HP 476DW Officejet Pro printer and when I'm trying to go through the set-up I get an error saying that there is a problem with the ink or the printer (0x6100000b).
I've tried unplugging it, but HP support mentioned that the printer might just be cold (we are in Michigan and it is freezing here). The ink cartridges are definitely cold, printer feels room temperature to the touch.
Is this a real problem with setting up the printer?

Hello, I would try and do as HP support says give them the benefit of the doubt, even though that makes no sense, as I have recently have had to replace the other versions or this machine, (576, 551). Either way, I am sure you will have to get level 2 support and have them ship you another machine, because I am almost sure that the machine just being cold is not the issue.
Also, to save you some trouble I have tried looking up the error codes I have come across and looked for training, as well as, a manual with no luck. So it seems we are stuck contacting HP in regards to issues with these machines.

I checked out the error code and it is related to temperature. This product has an operating temperature range spec of 15C-40C (59F-104F). In order to resolve your issue, just put the printer in an office environment in the temperature range listed and give it at least 12 hours to get up to temperature.
If you attempt to start it up again after putting it in the right environment and waiting, the error should go away. If the error doesn't go away (or your printer was never exposed to a cold temperature in the first place), talk to support as it's always possible it's a sensor or firmware issue (in my experience, this is really unlikely but obviously possible).
Hope that helps!

Hope that the solution provided above is able to solve your problem. Just to add on that the error code 0x6100000b indicated the temperature sensor in the printer detected the print engine inside (not the printer cover) was too cold (maybe below 5 degree C). If this error code did not go away during the re-try after the pinter sit in room temperature for at lest 12 hrs, it might be the sensor itself get problem and you should call HP Customer Support.
