Hi I guess you are also getting error "Ink system Failue"
Try this:

Reset the system by holding down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons down at the same time and turn the 3310 off. Keep holding the buttons down until the printer shuts off and the turn it back on. You will have to turn the printer off twice and then it will recalibrate. Make sure you have new cartiges in the printer so that it can reset.
If, this does'nt
& if your printer is in warrenty Call 1-800-474-6836 and tell them about the error code and they will replace it in first go
Best of luck!!

I am having a problem with my hp3210. It picks up paper but then shows jam . How would i know if the paper sensor is working

This is a common problem, Make sure the pick up rollers are clean (damp cloth and rub side to side) they may pick the paper but slip during the pick causing the paper to arrive late at the sensor. Check the fault codes or jam report from the information tab. If there are 13.1 jams, this is a good indication of the dirty roller problem.

Hp3210 ink system failure

Turn off the machine, unplug the power cord from the back of the machine, remove ink cartridges, wait 2 min, plug power cord back in, press on button, wait until the printer prompts you to replace the missing ink cartridges, then replace the ink cartridges. If this doesn't clear the error you may need to re-prime ink through the lines. There are instructions for doing this at Search for HP Photosmart and run through the "ink system failure" #1 instructions.
