No fix, a new scanner will cost as much as a new machine IF you could find a new scanner assy

SCANNER FAILURE


The issue is with hardware of the printer.
Scan feature is most expensive and sensitive part of the printer.
I suggest you to contact HP support. If the printer is under warranty you may get a replacement printer or else they may give you a better option.

If not on warranty you may try this workaround:

  1. With unit off, press the 'Cancel' (pink button) and 'Color' (green button).
  2. This will start the printer in a diagnostic mode. Press '1' to run the diagnostics.
  3. Press 'Enter' or other keys as directed by the display prompts. When you don't know what to press, the 'Enter' key usually works. Some of the keys called for (for example 'Plus' and 'Minus') are not on every psc 2210 keyboard. They are mapped to one of the "directional" keys just above the numeric keypad area next to the 'Enter' key. Keep trying keys till one works.
  4. After all the diagnostics, the display will either go blank or display 'Initializing...' . Wait 10-20 seconds to make sure it isn't doing anything else then press the 'On' key.
The printer should start without the scanner error and the grinding/chattering noise.

Leave the printer on because the next power cycle brings the chattering noise back.
But, when it does, the procedure above seems to fix it every time.

HP Psc 2210 powers up for around 5 secs then switches off


Unplug both ends of the power cord and count for about 60 seconds. Then plug back in. See if that works. That's what HP told me when I called customer service.

My printer will not print any documents, it does print a test page, when I select print the paper is ejected. I have re installed the software.


Try to print a self test page from the printer directly using the below steps....
  1. Make sure the printer is loaded with plain, white paper. Remove any special or colored paper.
  2. Press Setup on the front panel of the product.
  3. Press 1 , to select Print Report , then 5 , to select Self Test .After you have the report printed, check for 4 horizontal color bars in that report, the first color should be the the black one, if the black one is missing, issue seems to be with black cartridge, that may be the reason the printer spits out blank paper, try to replace the black cartridge and then copy if it copies or not.

HP 2210 scanner self test problems


If the glass of your scanner is too close to the scanner array it can jam. The cure for this problem is to open the case and put some narrow strips paper under the glass. If under Guarantee take it back.
Doubt if you can bypass the self test.

PSC 2210 Scanner Doesn't Work


I'm not sure about this specific model, but I've had similar problems with other HP all-in-ones and usually what fixes it is uninstalling and reinstalling the software (make sure to follow their directions properly and not plug the printer in until they tell you to). You should also make sure you're using the most updated software from the HP website rather than the one that came on the CD with the printer which may be outdated.
