Question about HP Photosmart 3210 Printer

Sudden printer rebellion

I have used my HP 3210 without problems for about a year. One day I used it and next time I looked, it was turned off. That has been over a week, and it WILL NOT turn on. I have repeatedly checked all the connections. To make matters worse, I can't find my install CD. Help!

Ink system failure. Error:0xc18a0106

The error that your having is a hardware issue, it means your printer has an Ink System Failure. Believe me, there's no use going through troubleshooting for this one. Call HP and just Upgrade your printer. HP Printer Tech Support would be more than happy in giving you discounts and an extra year of warranty for $1.00.

My Dad's 3210xi all of a sudden prints pictures in blues & greens

Occasionally printer cartirdges can clog and become unusable after refilling them several times. Also, if a printer cartridge has been "dry" for a long period it may experience the same problem. Your best bet is to buy replacement cartridges for any colours that show problems on the test page. If there is a blue & green hue to your printing that would suggest that the magenta is not printing and should be replaced.

Paper jam

I tried the Cleaning Kit HP sent me. At the time they didn't mention that it required a direct USB hookup rather than the Network setup I was using.

Another user suggested using Lighter Fluid sprayed on the defective (too hard) paper feed wheels. Crazy solution? Lighter Fluid is mainly Naptha which the user claims softens rubber.

I tried it last night and waited for the fluid to evaporate before plugging the printer in. I really expected the darned thing to go up in flames so I had a pot of water and a blanket nearby as a fire precaution.

Much to my surprise .. the PSC 3210 has been feeding sheets perfectly for the past two days! This is after sitting in a HOT attic abandoned for over a year! I had to replace one ink cartridge which had dried out completely.

I don't know how long this "fix" will continue working but Lighter Fluid is cheap. The PSC 3210 is a quality printer WHEN it prints. It's too bad HP created so much bad will in its customer base because of defective rubber paper feed wheels. I've avoided purchasing HP products for two years now and have warned others to stay away because of this fault with customer service. Instead of replacing the defective rollers in my original printer, they exchanged the printer for a refurbished printer with the same defective rollers!

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