HP Photosmart 3310 All-in-One Printer - I opened the ink cartridge door & it now seems locked in open position - won't close.


Your printer does have a lock that clicks in when you open the printer to replace ink catridges. The User Manual has no specific comment on steps required to release the lock.

Is there a release tab/button that you grip when lifting? If so, suggest you try pressing this same release as you lift the cover, lifting slightly higher to see if the lock will disengage allowing you to close.

If no release tab/button simply try lifting slightly higher as above to see if the lock will disengage.

If either of these does not resolve isse I would inspect losely to see if there is a way to disengage the lock; simply using more force may result in damage.

My HP Photosmart 3210xi cartridge door is also locked in open


There's no sensor, it's just a spring and a plastic wedge thing.

Using a #10 torx driver, remove two screws holding the right-hand side panel from the printer. (one in the back, one on top underneath the ink access door.) Unsnap it and set it aside.

Disconnect 3 small ribbon cables and one 5-pin connector that lead from the printer to the access door/scanner.

Remove the lid from the flatbed, then remove the access door from it's hinges. Use the torx driver and unscrew the hinges from the main scanner body.

Lift the hinge assembly from the scanner and push the steel pin out, seperating the two parts of the hinge.

From there you should be able to loosen them up, remove the springs, lubricate them, or find whatever the problem is.

Reassemble and you're done.

My HP Photosmart 3210 thinks the ink cartridge is still empty even though I have replaced it.


Very simple cartridge. Check the chip on the bottom to be sure that nothing is on the contacts. Try installing the old cart and see what happens. Fortunately, these are not very expensive. Install the old one, unless you ran it until it locked the printer out.
