Scanner mechanism stuck, making loud clicking sound


I've just got this problem after a powercut, whilst it was not being used but on. If you have only had it a few months send it in warranty.
Think I will have to take this apart and see if the scanner cable/ribbon/drive belt is caught on something or been stretched too much and can be replaced at all.
Its like at one end its caught and wont move the scanning head being stuck somehow, caught on something (doubtful tho').

HP PCS 2510 Scanner module keeps running


Please follow my steps:
1. Make a ring, which is 5mm high and 1/3 cut so that it can be mounted at the far right end of the rail bar where the scanner module sliding back and forth. This can help get the none-stopping scanner out of the trap!
2. Do the Semi-Reset opreation. Then you can see the healing result!

Cartridge gets stuck....


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} I had the same problem it seems this printer (i don't know a lot about printers) has a lever that holds the cartridge bay at the right for cartridge cleaning. 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.

Scanner Locked Error


Scanner Lock -- a possible quicker fix

Instead of removing the entire glass plate, just remove the narrow glass strip to the far left. To do this, open the scanner top revealing the glass, and remove the philips screw centered on the left edge. With a thin flat-head screwdriver or even a good set of fingernails, you can then pry out the thin U-shaped plastic piece holding the glass strip in place.

When you remove the glass strip, you now have (narrow but sufficient) access to the scanner pulley and belt. Pull the spring-loaded pulley back towards your right to get some slack on the belt, then remove the belt from the pulley.

This frees up the scanner head, which you can now slide manually (by pulling gently on one end of the belt and giving slack on the other) to a center position well away from the scanner lock. When I first tried, I didn't move the scanner head far enough -- to the middle or beyond seems sufficient.

Push the scan lock to the full lock and then the full unlock position, to make sure it is now free.

Using fingers, screwdriver, and/or pliers, re-seat the belt on the pulley, once again using the freedom to move the spring-loaded pulley a bit to the right.

Replace the glass strip, plastic cover, and screw.

Power on the scanner. The error message should now be gone, and the scanner head should slide back to its resting position on startup (unless something is caught underneath, which was apparently the case for some who had this problem but was not the case for me). If the first power cycle doesn't do the trick, another power cycle might be helpful.

This approach eliminates the need to remove the scanner lid, control panel, and scanner glass.

Remove the small glass pane of the left side of the scanner bed. You onlt need to remove one screw. Push the driver belt which will move the scanner to the left. It can be a little tricky to move the scanner the last little bit so you may need needle nose pliers or someone with a hook (I used a fork) to pull the scanner last little bit. Once the scanner is in the open spot where you removed the glass panel, simple take a q-tip and clean the mirror.

I did this and my machine is working just fine.

Scanner Error - Scanner Bar will not scroll across glass no scan or copies


I couldn't find anything specific to the 3210 online. Long shot, but this link is very detailed about another (very different) HP model that may just give you some ideas. Usually on this type of hp unit, once you have the front two screws out the top cover wil just hinge towards the rear. Could you post back some close up photos, hopefully we can give you some more help :)
