Question about HP Officejet 6310 All-In-One InkJet Printer
A hinge on the cover to the ink cartridge area broke. So I disassembled the printer and removed the springs from both hinges so that the printer would work. Which it does. However, I ended up with a cover harness-scan (JB63-00161A) left over. Where does this cover go?
Let me know if you find a source for replacements. In the mean time, I kept my unit working by just removing the broken top half of the hinge.
You have to remove 5 screws using a TORX T10 screwdriver. First remove the small plate covering the back of hinge on the outside. Then remove the two vertical screws at the top of the hinge up under the hinge lip. Then open the cover (be careful to hold it in place so as not to damage the three flex connections between the lid and body) and remove the other two screws at the top of the hinge. Remove the broken top half of the hinge and lower the cover back down. Until you find a replacement hinge, you can put a piece of heavy duty tape on the back where the hinge was.

Open the HP Photosmart Software on a Windows computer
1. Do one of the following:
– On the Windows desktop, double-click the HP Solution Center icon.
– In the system tray at the far right of the Windows taskbar, double-click the
HP Digital Imaging Monitor icon.
– On the taskbar, click Start, point to Programs or All Programs, select HP,
and then click HP Solution Center.
2. If you have more than one HP device installed, select the HP All-in-One tab.
Note On a Windows computer, the features available in the HP Solution
Center vary depending on the devices you have installed. The HP Solution
Center is customized to display icons associated with the selected device. If
the selected device is not equipped with a particular feature, then the icon for
that feature does not display in the HP Solution Center.
From here, you can scan, make copies, and perform maintenance procedures such as checking the ink levels for the print cartridges.

Testimonial: "I'm sorry. I forgot to say that I have a Dell computer, not an HP, just an HP printer. Very stupid on my part not to include such important info."
SOURCE: Broken hinge
Take the scanner lid off by squeezing the plastic hinges inserted into the back of the cabinet.
Take the top hinge of the cartridge door off with the 2 tork screws holding it, using a small screw driver.
Go to a hardware store & pick up a pair of cabinet hinges no more than 2". (You need to buy a pair because they do not come separate)
Place the new cabinet hinge on the back to the right of the bottom hinge of the base cabinet. Mark holes, drill one top, in the door, & 1 bottom cabinet, pilot holes. Check alignment & insert screws.
Tighten the bottom screws. Leave a little slack in the top screws as they have to be a little off set to close completely. You will only need to open this Cartridge door to change cartriges, so, no sweat.
My cost was under $5 for a pair of brass hinges, & my time, about an hour, taking my time.
It's too bad HP won't supply their offset hinges. They are inexpensive & easy to replace.
I've had my unit for exactly 4 years now, so this fix is a lot cheaper than buying a new one. Besides, I have ink already purchased that does not fit new printers.....go figure....

The 6210 series are famous for broken hinges, plastic and under spring loading. One place has them but at $88 for a set it may be not worth it. See link below if interested. I have one too with same problem.
