I'm getting this error everytime power up my psC 2210XI PRINTER and eventually can not use it anymore i.e. printing, sending fax. copying and all its function. Press enter as what it say on the display and printer did as what it supposed to do, prints test allignment but keeps on sending same message over and over again. Called up HP tech support from India and said this is a mechanical problem and advise me to switch and buy onother model and junk my printer(unlikely for a tech support to advise. My printer is only 3 years old, looks new and this is the first time problem.. don't want to junk it. Any good advise please Printer does not print properly

Question: when last was it serviced?
Do you use org. consumables?

By the sound of it the printer needs a service, the shaft and carriage seems to be dry and needs some lubrication

Will not copy - error reads that paper is too

Make sure the little tabs on the printer tray that sense paper, size etc. are free to move, make sure they don't have any small pieces of paper or crud in them, also try unplugging your power cord for a few minutes then plug it back in and power the printer up.

Faxing and receiving faxes

Hi, are you using the phone cord that came with your printer? If so, try a different cord if you have one. Can you plug a regular phone into that wall jack - does that work (dial-tone)? Are you using VOIP (like Comcast triple play), DLS or regular analog telephone service? If VOIP you may need to slow down your fax machine settings. Let me know how you make out. Good luck!
