2 Answers

HP Officejet 7210 "hangs" when starting a job. It gets through initializing when powered up, but after doing the # 6 powerup reset, it has a message "Aligning Cartridges-Please Wait" but does not do anything. What should I try next?

You should have a program installed on your computer called HP Product Assistant. Try running this program to determine the problem.

Also, make sure all the ink cartridges are fully seated.

You might also try unplugging the printers power cord, let it sit for a couple minutes, then plug it back in.

My HP officejet all-in-one printer has been displaying the message: Remove and check right cartridge. I have checked it and cannot get it to print, scan or remove that message.


remove all the ink cartridges, and then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer.
Now, hold down # and number 6 button together, and while holding them down, plug the power back in.

release the hold after about 30 seconds, or the display saying nvram reset .. something like that .. If the printer turns off , then you will have to turn it ON again .. and then insert the ink cartridges ,

this will reset the machine.. and should resolve the issue. Also check if yu have any old cartridge and first insert that and see. if no error on inserting the old cartridge and that if it come by inserting the new on, then it could be the cartridge problem. Will have to try with new ink cartridge.

I need a power cord for my HP officejet all in one 7210 series


You can buy them from HP by calling 1-800-227-8164, Monday-Friday, 8:30am to 6:00pm EST. You only need to do this if you need the adapter. If it is only the power cord running from your electrical outlet to the adapter that you need, you can get that at any local computer shop for a couple of bucks.

Carriage jam


Try this (it may not work) -
Perform a Semi-full Reset on the unit by following the steps below:
1. Make sure that the unit is on, and disconnect the power cord from the back of the unit.
2. On the unit keypad press the # and the 6 keys simultaneously and hold both keys down while plugging in the power cord.
3. The Semi-full Reset message will appear on the unit display.
Wait until the unit initialization process is complete. The unit will have recovered its original settings.

I've had this error before and had no obvious fault with the carriage (it moved freely and the encoder strip was in place) i managed to clear the error by stripping the printer down and cleaning around the service station area

HP 7210 OfficeJet All-in-One errors


My Hp came with a setup CD that has very specific (required) drivers. Truthfully, if you machine is using the wrong drivers for the selected printer, it will interpret the bi-directional communication with the printer wrong - as evidenced by the false "Paper Jam" message.

Here's a path to HP's drivers for the 72000 series printer and Mac OS.
