Question about HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

HP Officejet 7210 All-in-One Leaking Ink

...hmmm, sounds like a common problem
Last night my printer began jamming the messege "carriage jam" which continued into today only a bit more enthusiastically (after every other sheet). I thought perhaps it had something to do with the new paper I had recently purchased except that I had used this paper in the past with no problems. I opened the printer to remove the paper jam and discovered, to my horror, the ink well/housing under the resting spot for the cartridges was filled with black ink! Thick black ink is coating everything in this small confined area (fortunately) with a small ***** under where the black cartridge rests. Is this something we can clean on our own or do we need to give it a rest and purchase another?
History - purchased in May of 2005 for small home business (just me) and personal use (my husband and myself). We do use daily sometimes having to print over 100 pages a day (infrequently). This is the first problem we've had with the printer. Have I over extended its intended life?

I keep getting a carriage jam error message. There doesn't appear to be a jam, but I am unable to clear the message and print anything. Also the display screen reads original loaded. No idea what this...


Check the location of the ink carriage. If a piece of paper gets wadded up under this or something else is obstucting it you will see this error.

The original loaded message comes up when a sheet of paper is in the scanner tray.

Carriage jam


Step 1: Move the carriage to the center manually if necessary If the carriage is stuck on the right or left side of the product, follow these steps to move the carriage to the center of the product.
Step 2: Check for a broken carriage chute
The carriage chute is the side wall of the carriage that holds a curved metal piece (the x-bias spring). A broken carriage chute might cause the carriage jam condition.
Step 3: Turn the product off and on again
Step 4: Clear any paper jam.
Step 5: Make sure that the control panel faceplate is correctly installed
Step 6: Plug the All-in-One directly into a wall outlet
Step 7: Perform a partial reset
Step 8: Print a self-test page

Step 9: Service the product. Now this model is outdated as per HP website.

Carriage jam means the carriage, where you put the inks, can't move right to left properly. Sometimes ink on the clear strip behind it is the cause. You can carefully clean with damp Q-tip, and check also that the cleaning assembly on the right where the printhead parks, is not stuck.

yes, that is a carriage jam and not paper, the grinding is from the clean station that gets blocked with dried ink and cant move. you need to open the printer and clean the ink off of the clean station so it can clean properly and not cause a carriage jam.

Carriage jam on HP Officejet J5780 All-in-One


We have several of these in our company and the most common "Carriage Jam" cause is a glob of black ink in the bay on the right side. Once glob is removed, and "Carriage Jam" message appears again, press OK, and it prints fine from then on. Today the black ink glob was flat on top. Watch out for leaky cartridges, as the design of the particular HP device provides a nice catch pan for the tri-color ink cartridge, but not for the black one, so a leaky cartridge, besides being expensive and wasteful, can goop up the bay causing the carriage jam error message to try to get you to take a closer look.

Carriage jam


It's telling you that something is in the path of the paper or a paper is stuck in the machine. There is a panel on the back that removes quite easily. Check there. Also, check where you put in the ink, there may be a paper in there. Also look for bits of paper. Sometimes in a jam, the paper gets ripped and a piece of it is still there.

HP 7210 - Carriage Jam


Your item jumped a knotch. Like the fan belt in a car, timing is off. Needs professional service. The carts are out of alignment.

HP 7210 OfficeJet All-in-One errors


My Hp came with a setup CD that has very specific (required) drivers. Truthfully, if you machine is using the wrong drivers for the selected printer, it will interpret the bi-directional communication with the printer wrong - as evidenced by the false "Paper Jam" message.

Here's a path to HP's drivers for the 72000 series printer and Mac OS.
