Question about HP OfficeJet 6210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I just solved it!!!! Open the door, unplug, let the print cartridge move all the way to the left. Check where the cartridges usually sit on the right side, I found a BIG GLOB of sticky ink that had been leaking probably for years. Using a q-tip with a little bit of alcohol, remove and clean the area. SOLVED !!!!!!!

Noticed that the cartridge wasn't going all the way to the right - to the "ready" position when the printer is on. It seems it has to be all the way right or you get the "carriage jam" message. I opened the door and pushed it about a quarter inch to the right and I could hear it lock into place. There's a little catch mechanism on the left of the cartridge when it's correctly locked into place. I lubed it with some silicon wax and now the carriage can position itself all the way to the right - it now locks itself in correctly. You can manually push it to the right (when the power is on) to temporarily cause the error to go away, but some lubrication on the catch mechanism seemed to fix it.

Did what Jazz did. Worked like a charm. Thanks.

This helped me: (1) As Jazz said, opened the lid, unplugged without turning off, slid ink cartdiges to left to find a huge glob of congealed ink underneath the black cartridge. Cleaned with small spoon and Q-tips. (2) like Cavey said, I lubed latch to the left of the in cartidges (when they are in home position) with WD-40.
Must have leaked more ink that I ever used for printing!
Still get a few "Door not closed.." messages but the I have the infamous broken hinge issue and have to manually force the door closed.
