Question about HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I had a "carriage jam" error message.
My son gently wiped down the metalic strip that tells the carriage where it is. It worked for a couple of days and then the "carriage jam" message came back.
I took my 7210 apart, took the drive belt off/put it back on (not easy), and found nothing wrong with it. So, I put it back together. I noticed that if I pushed the print carriage all the way to the left, closed the lid, and pressed "OK", the print carriage would move a couple of inches to the right. It did this repeatedly. I figured the motor was working, but there was too much friction on the carriage. I put some 3-in-one oil on my finger and put a thin coat on the front, top, and back of the rod that the print carriage rides on. I then ran the carriage back and forth about 20 times. I closed the lid and it works fine.
I had the same problem with my DVD player. The head was hanging up on the two chrome plated rods that supported the head. I put some 3-in-one oil on the rods, ran the head back and forth, and it has worked ever since.
