Question about HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Carriage jams that constantly occur are due to something in the path of the paper or a dirty feed roller. I would inspect it very carefully for any type of ware on the rollers or sticky rollers or anything that could interfere with the path of the paper. Could be at one point someone tried to print labels and one got stuck in there and was never cleaned properly.
Another thing could be something broke off and the feed guide is out of alignment.

I was able to run run a piece of photo paper through a couple of times and printer now seems to be working again. The theory was that running a heavy piece of paper through might help clear little piece of paper that was not visible. The photo paper is less likely to tear if it gets jammed too.

Try resetting the printer (pressing the cancel button and connecting the power supply, check in the HP website if this is correct for your printer model) , after the reset the printer will clear any errors and will recalibrate the mechanism including the paper feed mechanism and the carriage.
Also check if the carriage is moving freely by disconnecting the power and moving it by hand.

Make sure you can move the print cartridge holder freely and that it isn't being blocked by anything inside the printer, also check if the cleaning station is in the right position, maybe it is locking the cartridges.

Mine did the same thing and I just cleaned the white strip with a warm cloth and it was fixed!
Try it before you throw your printer out the window! DB
