Question about HP PSC 1210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Paper skewing My HP 1210 has suddenly started this "paper skewing" problem. I have done the Reset process but it has not made any difference. Why would this start so suddenly?

    I have taken off the rear access door and cleaned the rollers. These rollers do NOT rotate freely. The 3 paper feed rollers on the door DO rotate.

When the paper skews as it is grabbed by the rollers, the first simple thing to check for is whether a foreign object has fallen into the paper intake. This was the cause of skewing in my case. To check for this, unplug the printer, turn it upside down and shake it (while holding any movable parts, like the lid). You may hear something bumping around inside the machine, which is a sign to investigate further. In my case, the object (a shirt button) just dropped out.

There should be an access door on the back of the printer. If you open this you can check the rollers to see if they are damaged or have debris on them.

    The rollers do not rotate freely because the are attached to the servo motor and gear train. That is as it should be,

    There could be another problem and that has to do with the lift plate which lifts the paper to the rollers you cleaned but it is to difficult to check and I would advise you not to try.

Yes, it is possible to be the problem. Most of the time you would replace the whole fixing unit, it could also be the paper feed rollers in the paper tray or the manual feed tray. Good Luck

When printing pictures, I use the photo paper mode, but the pictures come out blurred and skewed. The Printer makes a lot of grinding noises.

I would say that your printer ink heads need to be alined, in the software that was provided with your printer, select align printer ink heads.

Thumbs up!!!

Out of paper error when paper installed.

Please perform the steps provided in the following HP web link:

Also please make sure that you are using the supported papers as per the following Hp web link.

If the issue persists, please try with a diffrent set of paper and verify the result.

If the issue persists, repair your printer as this is a hardware issue.

When I print something on my hp 6210, the words and pictures are bisected and skewed. Why is it doing this?

You may have a paper path problem, if the paper skews during printing you will get skewed lines, try cleaning all the paper path rollers you can access, look for any paper debris.

Printer says out of paper. paper added still wont print

The solution to this is bizarre but worked for me.
In Vista press the windows key and R button. The Run window opens and in the run window type services.msc and then press Enter.
2. Locate Print spooler from the Services window which opened in the previous step.
3. Right click on it and select Restart.

Your printer will print a self-test page but then should be good to go.

Need 2 calibrate my hp 1210 printer

Hi *s*

(bottom left corner windows START)
got to;
start/settings/printers/ and click

right click your printer and select printing preferences
click on the tab that says SERVICES
then click on the services icon button (picture)

you will see three choices;
print a test page.

Aligning is what you want.(calibration is just a different word)

You can also remove the ink cartridges as you usually do and then put them back in, this triggers and automatic printed page and then walks you through scanning and the alignment.*s*

if by chance you still have blurry printing and know your machine should be ok, try cleaning.( same procedure, different last choice- you clean the heads)

You can also check to see if the proper paper is selected. For instance, if you are trying to print heavy greeting card paper it must be set to that or it will not print properly. *s*

If you have thrown up your hands and tried all this, and nothing works. Go through your printer preferences and select SET DEFAULT SETTINGS buttons.
It will knock everything back to the way it left the factory *S*

Thank you and good luck. Please remember to give my answer a rating *S*
