Question about HP Photosmart 3210 Printer
My HP Photosmart 3210xi All-In-One cartridge access door is also locked in the open position. Is there some kind of sensor to release so I can close the door? I've never had any problems before with this product.
There's no sensor, it's just a spring and a plastic wedge thing.
Using a #10 torx driver, remove two screws holding the right-hand side panel from the printer. (one in the back, one on top underneath the ink access door.) Unsnap it and set it aside.
Disconnect 3 small ribbon cables and one 5-pin connector that lead from the printer to the access door/scanner.
Remove the lid from the flatbed, then remove the access door from it's hinges. Use the torx driver and unscrew the hinges from the main scanner body.
Lift the hinge assembly from the scanner and push the steel pin out, seperating the two parts of the hinge.
From there you should be able to loosen them up, remove the springs, lubricate them, or find whatever the problem is.
Reassemble and you're done.

Tips for a great answer:
Turn on your HP Photosmart printer if it is not already on.
Reach under the access door handle at the front of the printer beneath the scanner and lift up on the scanner and door until the assembly locks into an open position, revealing the print carriage on the right side of the printer. If replacing a used cartridge, push down on the label of the cartridge to unlock it from the carriage and then lift it out of its slot.
Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging--holding the cartridge by its plastic sides. Pull the pink tab covering the copper-colored contacts gently down and then remove the tape from the ink nozzles.
Align the cartridge at the front of the slot in the print carriage with the label on the cartridge pointing up. Push the cartridge into the slot until it clicks securely in place.
Close the access door by lowering it and the scanner back into position.
