Printer making jerking noise.

Could be one of several problems. First and simplest - open the hatch to expose the cartridge carriage. When it moves to "centre" pull the power cable or switch it off at power socket. Move the carriage to one side or other and look into the far left and right corners of the machine to see if there is any paper or other object crammed in there. If so - remove it and check the other side. If that is clear, you will see a thin transparent strip that runs the width of the printer and passes behind the cartridge carriage. Carefully clean this both sides and full length with warm water and a couple of drops of detergent (NOT ALCOHOL please). Put it all back together, power it up, and try again. If the machine still makes a racket, it is probably an electronics fault or a faulty carriage belt motor. In which case, I suggest you cut losses and replace the machine.

When the scanner head on my hp 2210 reaches the home position over the motor the motor continues to run and causing the gears to slip. is there a limiter switch that tells the motor when to stop?

Open the printer wipe down and clean everything! The cause of this is dust! there are no switches to let it know it has reached the end it is only based on detection of the edge of that silver tape that's underneath, the detection is obviously done by... scanning! it is the contrast that triggers it Clean the scanner glass from both sides, the scanner module face the silver strip the white scanner cover/lid (this might be the main issue as the lid turns colour from white to yellow after a while) if the cover is yellowed try placing paper inside when turning it on if it persists try other colours or materials and experiment with it. and if you still couldnt resolve it then you have probably changed your main board with a low quality one! Let me know about this last part! Cheers

HP PSC 2210 - Printer sais: In conversation

Hi Pascal,

This looks to me like if the "fax" portion of the All-in-One was engaged.
Please try unplugging the telephone cable at the back of the printer.

Turn the printer off and then remove the power cable.
Leave it like this fro 10 seconds.

Reconnect the power cable and turn the printer “on”.
The message should have disappeared.
Now reconnect you telephone cable.

This might have happened if the printer “answered” te phone line and fro some reason it didn’t hang up.


PS1: If this worked for you, please com back and grade my answer.

The issue is with hardware of the printer. Scan feature is most expensive and sensitive part of the printer. I suggest you to contact HP support. If the printer is under warranty you may get a replacement printer or else they may give you a better option. If not on warranty you may try this workaround:
  1. With unit off, press the 'Cancel' (pink button) and 'Color' (green button).
  2. This will start the printer in a diagnostic mode. Press '1' to run the diagnostics.
  3. Press 'Enter' or other keys as directed by the display prompts. When you don't know what to press, the 'Enter' key usually works. Some of the keys called for (for example 'Plus' and 'Minus') are not on every psc 2210 keyboard. They are mapped to one of the "directional" keys just above the numeric keypad area next to the 'Enter' key. Keep trying keys till one works.
  4. After all the diagnostics, the display will either go blank or display 'Initializing...' . Wait 10-20 seconds to make sure it isn't doing anything else then press the 'On' key.
The printer should start without the scanner error and the grinding/chattering noise. Leave the printer on because the next power cycle brings the chattering noise back. But, when it does, the procedure above seems to fix it every time. PSC 2210 scanner failure HP Enterprise Business Community
