I have had the printer about a year. It has always worked great. It is still printing but. When the print job begins and the carriage sets to begin printing, it makes a very loud grinding noise. When I open the carriage and watch what is happenig, I see a washer with teeth going around. I am not sure if this is the problem or not, because until the noise I never paid any attention. The printer has not been moved or mishandled so I don't know why it was not making a noise and now is. Also when I replaced the ink cartridges I noticed below the black ink there was a ***** of think drying ink. Perhaps the previous cartridge was faulty. Regardless I replaced the cartridge but it is still noisy.

Re: HP 6210 all in one
Since you have had it a number of years and it would no longer be under warranty, you might want to try a few things. it sounds to me as if there is something in the printer > a scrap of paper> a some little object, etc. So I would look in the area where you would clear a paper clog and make sure it is clean. You might try turning the paper spool up until it clicks. Sometimes this will reset the printer and it will disgorge whatever is there.. On the other hand the cartridge thing is disturbing. I would try to clean that dried stuff off if possible, but very carefully with a qtip or a tiny instrument- be very careful not to bend or break any wires. Turn off you printer and BE SURE YOUR PRINTER IS UNPLUGGED WHILE YOU ARE DOING THIS. NOW TAKE OUT YOUR Other CARTRIDGEAND HAVE A GOOD LOOK AT BOTH CARTRIDGE SOCKETS. DOES EVERYTHING LOOK THE SAME? (Sorry about the caps)Nothing bent or broken in one? Now if all is okay replace your cartridges. Do they feel as though they are going in correctly? Plug your printer back in and turn it on. None of this will hurt your printer but it might help. If this doesnt work at all, It could also be that the cartridges were not put in when the carriage was in the correct position. So you could take them both out> turn off your printer> unplug it> wait a bit> then plug it back in>turn it back on and allow the empty carriage to move to where it should be when you install a new cartridge. Then try installing the cartridges again. Let me know if any of this helps.

Step 1 : Change the print settings The print settings of the HP All-in-One can be customized to handle nearly any print task. Before changing the print settings, decide whether to change the settings for the current print job only, or to make the settings the default for all future print jobs. How print settings are displayed depends on whether to apply the change to all future print jobs or just to the current print job Change the print settings for all future jobs: In the HP Solution Center, click Settings , point to Print Settings , and then click Printer Settings . Make changes to the print settings and click OK . Change the print settings for the current job: On the File menu in the software program, click Print . Make sure that the HP All-in-One is the selected printer. Click the button that opens the Properties dialog box.Depending on the software program, this button might be called Properties , Options , PrinterSetup , or Printer . Select the appropriate options for the print job by using the features available on the Paper/Quality , Finishing , Effects , Basics , and Color tabs. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box.Click Print or OK to begin printing. Step 2 : Print with 210 x 297 mm (8.5 x 11 inch) labels The HP All-in-One can be used with any software program designed for printing. This document contains basic information about using the HP All-in-One to print on labels using a software program. For additional information, such as printing a poster, printing multiple pages on a single sheet, and more, see the onscreen Help that came with the HP software. Follow these steps to print on labels: ·Make sure to load labels in the input tray.Always use letter or A4 label sheets designed for use with HP inkjet devices (such as HP inkjet labels). ·Make sure the labels are no more than two years old. Labels on older sheets might peel off when the paper is pulled through the HP All-in-One, causing paper jams.
Fan the stack of labels to make sure no pages are sticking together.Place a stack of label sheets on top of full-size sheet of plain paper in the paper tray, label side down. Do not insert labels one sheet at a time.
On the File menu in the software program, click Print .Select the HP All-in-One as the printer.To change settings, click the button that opens the Properties dialog box.
