HP printer psc 2210 all in one

I have a HP psc 2210 all in one printer. I moved it from one place to another. When I pluged the power back on, it went through its normal start up check procedure. It gets to a certain point, it starts to make a repetitive clicking noise. I cant stop it other than turning off the power. If I let it just go after a while it will stop and the display will say scanner failure. If I didnt pay so much for this damn thing I would intoruce it it my 12 gauge. Whats the deal, I can live without the scanner if that will help.

Re: HP printer psc 2210 all in one

The movement of the ink carts is normal...They move across the page to spray out the graphics/text. They 'zero' at the power up. HPs are, in my personal experience, the most finicky brand there is...but they generally work pretty well. Did you try to unjam that scanner bar? If you can't, the economics of repair are not in your favor...which means it will cost more to fix than it is worth.

Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all work in most cases. Good luck.

I am getting no power at all to my HP 2210 all in one. Do the power cords go bad or is it something else?

Try moving the printer to another location ( just by itself, you don't need a computer for this) and powering up. If this doesn't work, shut off your computer and remove the power cord from the back of it. Replace the wall to power adaptor portion of the printer power cord with the one from the computer and try again. If this doesn't work, you cheapest easiest solution is to purchase a new printer.

I added new office max brand ink cartridge to my hp psc 2210 printer and i keep getting a "remove and check cartridge". i took inkcartridges out and replace the ink cartridge a couple of time and still...

A lot of branded ink pots have chips in them some dont it sounds like your hp printer is not getting the correct response from these ink pots , you could try to override the report and tell it to print anyway

My computer doesn't recognize that my printer is hooked up every since I unplugged it and moved it.. I don't have the manual and I know that there is a certain order in which things are pluged in.

To avoid errors, install the HP PSC software before you connect the HP PSC to your computer. If an error message appears and you clicked Next or OK, do the following:
1 Press Esc on your keyboard to exit.
2 Turn off your HP PSC.
3 Disconnect the HP PSC from your computer (detach the USB cable).
4 Follow the software installation steps outlined in the Setup Poster that came with your HP PSC.

If you receive a message that you have a previously installed version, you will not be able to finish installing the HP PSC software. You will have to uninstall the previously installed version in order to install the HP PSC software.

If your computer is unable to communicate with your HP PSC
If communication cannot be established between your computer and HP PSC (for example, the HP PSC status icon has the yellow error triangle), try the same tasks outlined under If Microsoft’s New Hardware Found message does not appear on page 57 of the manual.

Here is a link to the manual for your printer...

HP 2210 all-in-one printer won't start.


I request you to check the power cable of the printer and remove the ink cartridges from the printer and power off the printer.

Wait for 2 to 3 minutes and then power on the printer. If still does not work check with different power outlet.

This should work.

Go through and be sure every drawer and cover is closed properly.
Sometimes its that simple that one of those cover switches is not quite making contact.

1.) Double check the power outlet that your printer is pluged into. Swap to another outlet. 2.) Double check the plug at the printer end, it may go in only one way. Still no power when you press the power button? It may be bad. Return it.
