Question about HP Photosmart 3210 Printer

1 Answer

Top will not close!

Hi all. My 3210 printer has been working great for 2 years, but all of the sudden, I got home from a trip (which means my wife was undoubtedly monkeying with the printer) and now the top door will not close. I have tried to look for something thata i scaught to no avail. The printer looks like an open clam shell and I can't figure it out, any help?

Is the hinge busted or can you snap it back into the holder?

How can i use hp 3210 all-in-one printer with toshiba chromebook

The 3210 can be connected either through a USB port directly to a computer or ethernet cabled to a router or switch. Either will work. Personally, I would connect it using ethernet (~$15 for a cable) because then it becomes a common resource on your home network.

The printer door is closed but says it is open


This is a false alarm. Anyways you can find a little opening on the left side of the printer under the top cover. See if anything is not tripping the switch. Try to trip the switch manually by pressing it with a small screw driver of a pen and this will solve the problem. If the printer works then you can inspect the top cover if a small plastic thing is broken which trips that switch when it is closed.

Espon 1400 prob. with vista close the cd/dvd guide. It is CLOSED!

I am having the same problem. I am on my 3rd printer from Epson in 2 weeks.
The solution may be to buy another brand, but I have more in Epson ink & paper than I have in the printer.
