Question about HP OfficeJet 6210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

The printer cartridges are stuck on the right side of the machine and no longer slide on their own. I can manually force them over but there is a lot of resistance.

I can't remove the printer cartridge. It seems to

The cartridge slides in on two rails, you probably got these cross threaded. Look at the angle of the cartridge, it is probably angled. Pull up and out with both hands lifting on the low side and pushing on the higher side. It will take a considerable amount of force if someone was somehow able to get it all the way in while still off-track.

Unable to remove black cartridge, it is really stuck. Help

I just changed my black toner this past week, and finally figured out why the cartridges get stuck like this.

First, you must eject the toner cartridge on the front-panel menu:
Menu->Replace Toner->Eject Toner->Black(K)

It will say "Rotating to Black Toner(K)" and then say "Black Toner(K) Ready to Eject"

Now, open the front panel and you'll see the black toner cartridge in front. You can also open the top panel if you want more light on your work area.

Lift the lock handle on the old toner cartridge to the "unlock" position, and here's the part that the Dell instructions don't have:

There are two channels for the toner cartridges -- one on each side. Run your finger down the channel on the right, and you'll feel a small, spring-loaded catch. This catch often gets sticky and won't release the cartridge without some help. Don't force it, but gently move it towards the back of the printer and it should release.

Now the old cartrdige should slide right out, and you can finish per the instructions that came with the new cartridge.

Power down printer. Lift cover and manually slide cartiridges left to right a few times. close cover, power on and see if when you open the cover again the cartiridges align. To double check your system is working, try to make a copy of a document.

Canon copier D761's printer cartridge is jammed

That door above the cartridge needs to be open all of the way, maybe even push it back gentley to make sure. Should be at 90-92 degree angle. Then the cartridge will come out.

After opening door printer cartridges do not slide to middle


When you close the door do you notice that it makes lots of noises like the carriage is getting stuck somewhere???

If yes then you need to really watch this and see where it is getting stuck it is most likely to be a prong that has come loose or the slide next to the carriage jam on the far right hand side has become very dirty.

Also check where the carriage sits make sure that is not full off ink USE GLOVES putting your hands in the printer it can get very messy,

let me know if that has helped.

Cartridge gets stuck....

If you move the printer on the side or during a paper jam it can move this lever and get out of sync with the cartridge bay cleaning process witch is when you power on the printer and this problem may happen.

I took the top off the printer and noticed that when the cartridge bay wanted to move to the left this lever wont go down holding it at the right and when it did go to the left it was with some force so the cartridge bay was always out of center (it supposed to be at the center when you turn on the printer otherwise it will give an error message) so I pushed manually this lever at the right (is hard to move but you can move it) and let the cartridge bay sit on the cleaning pads at the right then turn off the printer.

When I turned on the printer, the cartridge bay returned to his proper routine and was centered so the problem was solved. I hope it helps.

The cradle is stuck

Fixed it myself...found this link:

It would print the Tap Test as instructed in this illustration....but then wouldn't move to print anything else. So redid the Tap Test several times....then I lifted the lid while printing a test page so the cartridge was in the center and I could get ahold of it to slide it....left the printer ON, but unplugged the power cable...and then I was able to move the cartridge back and forth. I then took QTips with Windex on them and cleaned the silver bar the cartridge moves on. Got a lot of ink off of it.
A couple more test prints...and sliding the cartridge......and it is finally running again.

I figured it out!
For all those who have problems clicking it into place it's probably the printer's not on. Turn it on an the top half of the cartridge holder which is connected to the printing head should slide to the left part of the printer when it's on, then slide the cartridges in an click in.
