Question about HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Carriage jam I read all the articles you have here. Upon inspection in the unit I noticed small white pieces underneath the roller that moves the belt that moves the carriage. Well the inside of the rollers is stripped. Any way to get new parts for it? I called a place and they said I need to buy a whole new unit. Any way to just get it fixed?

Find a used printer that has a different problem that yours and use parts from that printer to fix yours. The 7200 and 7300 series of printer are no longer being made and buying a whole new printer might be your best and cheapest bet. HP printers sell for almost nothing and repair of one small part with 2 hours of labor at 60 to 80 dollars an hour at a repair shop plus the cost of the part would be almost the price of a new printer or more.

Good luck

While printing 2 or 3 lines it shows paper jam message. Can't print even a page!!!


make sure you don't have any small pieces of paper stuck in the printer s.gif s.gif s.gif
Paper jams can be real or false. The unit may report a paper jam when there is not any jammed paper, however, the solution to a real paper jam or a false paper jam is the same. WARNING: Jammed paper must be removed using the rear access door and the power cord must be disconnected or a carriage jam or mechanical damage may occur. Do not remove jammed paper from the front of the unit.
  1. Turn off the HP product and turn it so the back of the unit faces you.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the all-in-one. The power cord must be disconnected to allow the paper feed rollers to turn freely.
  3. Locate and open the rear access door by pressing in on the left side tab and then pulling the door toward you. Figure 1: Removing the rear access door c00108288.jpg Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door.
  4. Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door. Click How to buy on this page to order replacement parts.
  5. From the rear access door opening, remove the jammed paper.
  6. Remove the remaining paper from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper that is damaged or crumpled and then re-stack and reload the paper into the paper supply tray.
  7. Reinstall the rear access door.
  8. Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on. If a carriage stall occurs after clearing the paper jam, resolve the carriage stall.

Carriage Jam


If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Follow the steps for fix HP Printer Carriage Jam

  • Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
  • Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
  • Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
  • Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

My HP Officejet J4680 states that there is a cartridge jam. How do I fix this?


this issue is a little tricky as the unit may think there is a paper jam
first make sure the craddle - where the ink cartridge sit - can move freely, if it can then look for any bits of paper that may be stuck around it or in the machine, clean the rollers on the rear access door of the unit as well.
if the error message doesnt clear out then try the next step
If the carriage chute will not move then disconnect the power cord press and hold # 3 at the same time and as holding those 2 buttons re connect the power cord. if the carriage fails to move upon reset then you have a carriage jam and your printer needs servicing

During startup the drive belt slips and gives an error


Open the printer's door and look for the print carriage. It's the platform that moves back and forth over the paper, probably where you put new cartridges. Unplug the printer, and check this belt and its pulleys to see if it's either broken or possibly covered in ink. The drive belt will be black and have gear teeth on it. If you see a metal or plastic ribbon, that's more likely the encoder that let's the printer's computer read the position of the carriage. See if you can nudge the carriage and make it move a little; it may simply be jammed. Check the carriage's moving path and make sure it's not obstructed. Any other problems would probably best be handled by Epson.

PAPER JAM


Hi, oh dear, you have a paper jam in or near the roller or very small one in carriage. Open up unit as if rplacing cartridges, get a torch if you have to and search for tiny jam. A good clue, is does the carriage return to correct positon upon opening?

Error - carriage jam message


My Photosmart 2610 just started having this same problem today. As many of you have done, I also went to the hp support website and tried just about everything. Finally I discovered the answer to my problem on my own. Here's what I did (you might want to have a wet rag handy to wipe the ink off your fingers):

1) With the printer on, I pressed "okay" to clear the error message. You should immediately hear the sound of the carriage (the contraption that holds the cartridges) moving inside.

2) Open the print cartridge access door (the main access point for the cartridges) and confirm that the carriage is indeed moving.
If the carriage won't move at all, I'm not sure that this solution will help you. However, if the carriage moves from side to side after you press "okay", please read on.

3) This is unorthodox, so bear with me: when the carriage moves away from it's "resting place" (in my printer it's on the right hand side) and is near the center of the printer, unplug the power cord from the printer. The purpose of this is to free up the undercarriage (which was the part that actually was jammed on my printer).

4) Ensure that the carriage moves freely from left to right and right to left by pushing gently on its sides.

5) Move the carriage to left side of the printer so you have room to access the undercarriage.

6) It might be helpful to have a flashlight or some other light targeting the undercarriage for this next part. If you look directly underneath the undercarriage, you should see a foam/spongy product resting in the base of the printer. The purpose of the sponge is to absorb any ink that escapes from the cartridges. Herein lies the problem: over time, as the undercarriage adjusts to enable the carriage and its cartridges to do their work, the undercarriage gets caught on the inky sponge. Note that the undercarriage is fragile, but is moveable by gently pushing it toward the front or back of the printer.

7) Adjust the undercarriage so you can see the sponge and the "axel" (for lack of a better term) that turns to move the undercarriage forward and back. It may take some detective work, but you should be able to determine where the sponge is supposed to lie. Your goal here is to push the sponge down as far as it will go so that it won't obstruct the movements of the undercarriage.

8) On my printer, there was also a small amount of sponge wrapped around the "axel" that prevented it from moving smoothly. I unwrapped it and double-checked that nothing else was obstructing movement.

9) Final step: leave everything where you moved it, shut the lid, and plug it back in. A little prayer never hurts either. Good luck! AIM ID if you need more help: GnarlyVeaux

Lexmark x4270 paper jam


Have you looked inside the roller assembly. More often then not a small piece of paper will get stuck deep inside the roller assembly. This will lead to paper jam errors. Inspect more closely. You will probably find some tiny tidbit somewhere.

There is a limit switch on each side or some models its located by the cam. If you took apart the can assy then the units out of mechanical timing and you are gonna need a service manual for this. If the switch is not working on the side I myself forgot to plug back in the small plug on the curcuit board. Good Luck
