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

"Deadly Embrace" problem you answered

Hi!
I am the guy you diagnosed with "deadly embrace" problem. Thanks for taking your time answering this for me!!
I tried what you suggested and yet again it did nothing. After unplugging everything like you said and plugging the printer back in I heard the carriage moving back and forth as it was booting up and it sounded slow--like it was struggling to move. Yet I can find NOTHING jammed in there that could be slowing it down. The weirdest thing is the way the problem started. I had just used the printer the day before and I usually leave it on, but I happen to remember to turn it off before bed. When I woke up and turned it back on it no longer worked. I tried to go into my cpu and see the queue for the printer and when I clicked print the page showed up in the queue for about a sec. then disappeared without the printer flinching. I fear you already know judging by your "deadly embrace" diagnosis my printer is toast. Thanks again, so much, for your time reading/answering my problem!!!!

Tim...maybe not toast yet.

The slow moving cartridge after "boot up" from a total shutdown is normal. The system forgot everything and has to re-learn stuff like "where is the end of the carriage" believe it or not.

The disappearing print means that the system thinks there is a printer there but there isn't. The printer, on the other hand, is not getting the print either. Kind of like sending a letter to the wrong address. You sent it but it never got there. You didn't get it back so you assumed that it was received but it wasn't.

Let's try this....
1. Check to make sure that the cable between the computer and the printer are mechanically sound. This means: unplug the cable then plug it back in on both ends. (I've seen tiny insects crawl in between one pin...that's where the term "bug" came from) As you do this you may should see Windows (using MS?) acknowledge the plug but not the unplug...(...found new hardware...found printer...)
2. Check the printer "properties". Does it show more than one printer....look for "(2)" in the list.
3. Try disassociating the printer with the LPT1 or PRN port and then reassociating.
4. lots of other stuff...let's try the basics first.

From your description both devices are working fine. Just the communications is hosed up.

Need Drivers for Xerox XD105F for Vista


I see you are looking for a chat for this as I try to help you for free (what a nice guy am I!) ... I went to the windows 7 hardware compatibility list for your printer ... it says on page 21 there is no information available. I understand you are using Vista not 7. I went to Vista compatibility list ... no information available.

This is generally a nice way of saying your (who ever) device is no longer supported by the operating system and we (Microsoft/the manufacturer) are not writing a driver for it - it is time to upgrade.

So, there is your free answer ... I hope you got a better answer for your $20.00 chat ...

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Xerox Work Center 657 Will Not Recieve, After Replacing Drum


Check to see if when he reset the fax reverted back to receive only as a default.
  1. Press [Menu] (the Up arrow key), and press [3], [1], [0], then press [1].
  2. Select the Answer Mode:
    • Press [1] to select Auto answer, then skip to step 3.
    • Press [2] to select Manual answer, the press [Stop] to return to the Standby mode.
  3. If you select the Auto answer feature, use the numeric keypad to enter the number of times (must be 2 digits, 01-10) the phone must ring before the machine answers, then press [Enter].

    NOTE: When the machine is set to Auto answer and the set number of rings occurs, the machine answers with a fax signal tone and enters the Auto Receive mode.

  4. Press [Stop] to return to the Standby mode.

Open the front cover and leave open while completing the following steps:
Turn the printer off.

The toner light should be off.
The paper light should be on.
Close cover. The ready light should be the only light on.

HP Photosmart all in one. Trouble with Telephone & fax rings


Hi Natalie,

Did you follow the instructions in your HP Photosmart 3110 AIO manual, starting on page 30? I'll assume that you set-up your printer using Case E or Case H, where you share a voice line with your fax service. If so, then you should set the AUTO ANSWER option to OFF per the instructions on page 50.

If you have an answering machine, then you should set up the printer using Case I, whereby you will set the AUTO ANSWER option to ON and then set the the RINGS TO ANSWER to a number greater than the number of rings for your answering machine to pick up.

I hope this helps. If you have another configuration that I haven't answered (i.e. other than Case E, H, or I), please reply back with your exact set-up.

Or if you have lost the manual, you can get it from this website:

If you found this answer useful, I would appreciate you leaving feedback.

Thanks,

Lee

When i send a print nothing happens. I opened the lid to check for a jam. nothing. but when i closed it the screen on mu printer says carriage jam.....


Sounds like the "deadly embrace" problem...

Computer says to itself "waiting on printer status"
Printer says to itself "waiting on computer status"
Results....nothing.

Try this:
1. Shutdown (using the normal operating system shutdown) the computer.
2. Turn off and unplug both the computer AND the printer at the same time.
3. Plug the printer back in first (and if necessary, turn it on) THEN
4. Plug in the computer and allow it to start normally.

Now try a print.
Let me know if this works for you.
