Question about HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I had a "carriage jam" error message. I took my 7210 apart, found
nothing wrong with it and put it back together. I noticed that if I
pushed the print carriage all the way to the left, closed the lid, and
pressed "OK", the print carriage would move a couple of inches to the
right. It did this repeatedly. I figured the motor was working, but
there was too much friction on the carriage. I put some 3-in-one oil on
my finger and put a thin coat on the front, top, and back of the rod
that the print carriage rides on. I then ran the carriage back and
forth about 20 times. I closed the lid and it works fine.
I had the same problem with my DVD player. The head was hanging up on the two chrome plated rods that supported the head. I put some 3-in-one oil on the rods, ran the head back and forth, and it has worked ever since.
