How do I close the door to my printer? It seems that one of the hinges is broken apart.


If it's broken, you can't get it back together and your prrinter won't work with "door" opem look for the sensor which indicates that door is open, stick it somehow so it should show door closed and used happily forever your printer. If this trick is not possible, no way, take your printer to an HP repair center and get installed a new door.

Can't close doc cover properly - seems 'broken' at hinge - can I fix this myself?


The left hinge breaks often enough that Brother changed the part number of the part. I hope that means the new part is stronger; I haven't seen one come back for a second repair. Assuming it's the larger, left hinge that's broken (It always is.), you need an LP2403001 HINGE ASSY L. You can find it from a servicing dealer or online, and it's easy to replace.

Look at the back of the machine and find two large phillips screws in holes. They keep the hinge blocks from coming up all the way out of the machine. Remove both of them and lift the top cover up until it's connected only by its cable. It might take a helper to hold the cover, but you need to unscrew the hinge assy. from the top. The three screws are obvious and easy to reach now that the cover is loose. Put the new hinge on, lower the top back down so the hinges drop into their holes, and put those screws back into the holes in back. You're done.

Left and righ hinge is broken on my HP officejet 6210, where can I find


I "inherited" a 6210xi because BOTH hinges were broken... poor and weak plastic design that breaks if the operator tries to raise the access past about 40 degrees for access to ink cartridges... of course after the hinges break it doesn't close properly to start again (except with creative taping!). In my pursuit of these parts I found that the lower hinge part (broken) Part#JB6100289A is actually a Samsung part for their SCX-15 printer/scanner. It was also interesting to find several of these 6210xi's for sale on eBay and other places for $10 or less as "broken, parts only" and AMAZINGLY, it was the same broken hinge part that put all of these out of service. Found the HP Part number as RG5-6317-0000N but couldn't find anything except to buy either the Top half of a whole 6210 or the Bottom half for hundreds of $$'s, far more than the WHOLE new working item would be. UED.net listed the part as "non-stocking" at $2.27 each, available Aug 8, 08, but it turned out to be that they are negotiating for access to that parts and VIOLA! a few months later I received SIX hinges at $2.27 each plus shipping. You have to be creative to keep your old stuff working.

Can I get parts to replace broken hinge? I have an HP Officejet 6210 All in One.


In the mean time, I kept my unit working by just removing the broken top half of the hinge.
You have to remove 5 screws using a TORX T10 screwdriver. First remove the small plate covering the back of hinge on the outside. Then remove the two vertical screws at the top of the hinge up under the hinge lip. Then open the cover (be careful to hold it in place so as not to damage the three flex connections between the lid and body) and remove the other two screws at the top of the hinge. Remove the broken top half of the hinge and lower the cover back down. Until you find a replacement hinge, you can put a piece of heavy duty tape on the back where the hinge was.

Lid does not close locked fully open


I had the same problem, you will excuse my english but I think you might be intrested on the answer even with this little inconvenience.

It seems that those "arm" like things that help the lid to move up and down get stuck if you pull them over a certain limit.

So... in order to fix it we'll have to disarm them.

If you feel experienced enough to do it, and your guarantee is already gone and you don't wanna pay for a technician AND you are willing to get some stuff broken (which I didn't break) here's the answer:

First you'll need to open some of the covers of the printers:

1. The Memory Card reader cover

2. The side cover (on the same side of the memory card reader)


Once you do it, you must unplug the data cables on the rear of the scanner (there are three flat data cables, and 1 power cable (the top one) that needs to be unplugged in order to remove the cover.

Once you removed the data cables, you can pull up the cover (yeah, there are no screws, if you can't get it off, there might be some screws on your model on the base of the "arms" that help the cover move up and down that must be unscrewed)

then you need to unclip the "arms" from the cover, this is very easy, just push down the tab and pull them.

(REMEMBER you must never force any part, if you get stuck on any part, just quit and call a techician)

so now you got both "arms" or the black thing holding the cover in your hands, you'll notice a metal part joining them, you'll need to pull it off, I used a pocket knife to pull it and then just used a screwdriver.

CAUTION: when you finish pulling that off, it may pop open.

Basically the system works with 4 parts: 2 parts of the arm, a spring and a little plastic thing inside that works like some kind of knee.

If you manage to put the whole thing back together you'll get it fixed, just put everything back together and it will work.

I couldn't hehe, so I decided just to remove the "knee" plastic thing and put the arm back together, I did that for both arms and put everything back together.

if you don't put the little plastic thing over the spring, you won't be able to open the lid and make it stay open by itself (which is what I did) but everything will work again. If you manage to put everything back together, you're my hero cause I think that piece must be assambled by a machine and it is really hard to do it with your bare hands.

So my printer works perfectly again, yeah, I need to hold the cover to change the cartridges, but hey, a little extra excercise is not bad.

The only thing I didn't do was to put the "knee" things. If I find a way to put them in the mechanism, it will work back to normal, meanwhile, I have my printer working perfectly now.

Broken hinge


Take the scanner lid off by squeezing the plastic hinges inserted into the back of the cabinet.
Take the top hinge of the cartridge door off with the 2 tork screws holding it, using a small screw driver.
Go to a hardware store & pick up a pair of cabinet hinges no more than 2". (You need to buy a pair because they do not come separate)
Place the new cabinet hinge on the back to the right of the bottom hinge of the base cabinet. Mark holes, drill one top, in the door, & 1 bottom cabinet, pilot holes. Check alignment & insert screws.
Tighten the bottom screws. Leave a little slack in the top screws as they have to be a little off set to close completely. You will only need to open this Cartridge door to change cartriges, so, no sweat.
My cost was under $5 for a pair of brass hinges, & my time, about an hour, taking my time.
It's too bad HP won't supply their offset hinges. They are inexpensive & easy to replace.
I've had my unit for exactly 4 years now, so this fix is a lot cheaper than buying a new one. Besides, I have ink already purchased that does not fit new printers.....go figure....
Aloha.

How to replace broken hinge on ADF on Brother MFC-8820D printer


Look at back of machine and at your new hinge, note the screw hole, if you undo both of those on the back of the printer, entire doc feed will come up and out, BECAREFULL just lift A LITTLE is enough to enable hinge base to be free of sockets (many cables attached) and place doc unit slightly sideways on copy glass to enable yourself access to 3 screws that hold hinge.
