Question about HP OfficeJet 6210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Hp 6210 won't print or read anything that goes through top feeder

I am wondering if my unit has finally bit the dust, in the meantime, I thought I should ask about my issue anyway. My HP 6210 printer will scan images fine, print from files, even recieve and print faxes. But when it comes to anything to do with the top load feeder, nothing works. My faxes come out blank on the other end when I send them, and when trying to copy pages from the top feeder, the same thing happens. If it's the reader itself, I am confused because the reader works when you scan or copy an image or document from the glass. I have taken it apart, cleaned it, rebooted it, and nothing seemed to help...maybe it's time to get a new one.

The scanner unit is not coming to the home position for the ADF, you can't get individual parts.

Hp 6210 prints a black line down the center of the page. 1st 50 copies okay, then line started.


First diagnose if the line comes when using the doc feeder or the glass. If it only comes when using the doc feeder then you have a small dirt spot on the glass where the page is scanning over the exposure lamp. Just clean it.

Hp officejet 6210 all in one, carriage jam


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I have the HP Officejet 6210, it prints but will not scan


If you are flat bed scanning then try this....Try scanning through the top feeder instead. Mine has had this problem before and it has solved it.

HP Officejet 6210 will print but with terrible clicking noise


Ok this Sounds Crazy but it worked for me and its easy to try. Unplug the unit and pick it up and turn it side ways and gently shake it. Sometimes a small piece of plastic has broken loose and is interfering with the works and if you can dislodge it from its current location it will stop. Be careful not to hurt youself doing it. Also, I have one printer with a missing tooth on one of the gears and has been growling at me for a long time.
Best of Luck,

Dark balck line down middle when copying, but not when printing


If this happens only when you feed the original through the top feeder and not when you lay it on the glass, then you have a small bit of dirt at the scanning location--since the paper moves, rather than the scanning bar, the section of glass that is involved is very small and one little bit of dirt will make a line down the whole page. You need to lift the automatic document feeder mechanism and clean the glass strip under it--that's where your (unseen) dirt is. (Page 108 of the manual, if you have one.)

there is a dirt on the ADF (CIS contact image sensor) that reads your document, identify where the lines came from either from top or bottom then open your adf and clean the affected area. this will solve the problem.

Can't Scan with my HP 6210 All-in-One


Hi Kal,

I've included a procedure to get current drivers. But since your 6210 has been working, I thought we might try this first. The following link will bring you to a page describing an HP utility that specifically addresses your problem. Read through it and follow it's lead.

HP Scan Diagnostic Utility

For the correct 6210 drivers:

Click this link for for HP Software & Driver Downloads page.

Once there, select your Operating System (XP)

The next screen will offer several download options:

Under Drivers:
Select the appropriate driver for your application/situation.
Be mindful of the download sizes. One of them is pretty hefty and could take a while.

The first option should take care of your scan problem without all the reinstall turmoil. But, if it doesn't, option two will.

Any problems, let me know. We'll handle it.

Hope this helps

Mike

Printer Grabs corner of the paper and jams


I had the same problem and what I finally noticed was that something had falled off the shelf above and lodged itself way up in the paper feed slot. It was basically invisible at first and produced the exact symptoms that you described. Unplug, hold upside down and give it a good shake. It's worth a shot.
