Re: HP PSC 2210 All-In-One InkJet Printer Start Up...

If you're setting up the printer or changing the toner or ink cartridge for the first time, double-check the instructions to make sure that you installed the cartridge correctly and, for new printers, that you have removed all the pieces of cardboard or plastic packing material. 
Check to see whether paper is feeding from the paper tray. If it's not leaving the tray at all, try feeding a page manually (if that's an option) or using a different paper tray. Sometimes a problem with the tray can be traced to a broken spring or a piece of plastic. 
If paper is feeding from the tray but jamming in the printer, examine where the jam is occurring and then inspect the printer carefully to see if you can find what is causing the problem. A piece of paper, for instance, might be blocking the paper path. 
If paper is feeding through the printer but coming out blank, check to see whether the printer is out of toner or ink. A defective toner or ink cartridge could be the problem.

HP 2210 all-in-one printer won't start.


I request you to check the power cable of the printer and remove the ink cartridges from the printer and power off the printer.

Wait for 2 to 3 minutes and then power on the printer. If still does not work check with different power outlet.

This should work.

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.

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.
