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

2 Answers

My HP Officejet 6210 All-in-One printer goes offline whenever I don't use it for about 15-20 minutes, and when I put it back online, nothing happens. Looking at the printer from the control panel, I see "Error-printing" next to my print job. I cannot delete the print job while that error message is displayed, even though it says it's being deleted. If I try to print something else, I get the same "Error-printing" message. Often if I turn it off and back on, it will print, but I'd really like to get rid of this problem.

The users who are experiencing offline errors while using the HP printers are suggested to check the connections, settings and printer hardware before proceeding any further.

The connection to and from the printer shall be verified thoroughly by the users and any anomalies if found shall be fixed then and there.

As these errors can also be caused by printer hardware issues, the users are suggested to check with different key components of the printer like the cartridges, feed tray and more and fix any issues if found.

Restarting the printer and the computer after following the above mentioned procedure will help in solving and preventing the offline errors with your HP printer.

HP Printers have common behavior of going into sleep mode if not used for a while. If this happens every-time the printer goes to sleep mode and you find printing issue, try this simple step below

Disconnect the power cable from back of printer
While holding the # and 3 button, connect the power cord to printer.

*Note this is partial reset and doing so you may loose fax logs and other fax related setting you have setup on printer.
