Question about HP OfficeJet 6210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have an HP Officejet 6300 all in one. The printer will disconnect and connect all on its own. I can have just printed something and try to print a second page and it will have disconnected. However, it usually will print several hours later. I have started unplugging it at night so I don't have to see the lights blinking in the morning. Right now it is on a rampage printing one thing a hundred times. In the morning the Reset Power will be flashing on the printer. Any Ideas?

Try resetting the printer using following steps:
1. When your printer is on, unplug the wire that goes to the computer.
2. Presee and release (#) and (*) buttons.
ou will see your display say "Support Menu"
3. Scrolls to the right until you see "resets" and pess ok
4. Select "semi-full reset" and hit OK

SOURCE: Flashing Lights on HP 690C - Won't Print

Hi Stev, First I know this is going to sound strange but have you disconnected the printer cable from the printer itself? (not the computer) If not try unplugging both the parallel and power cables for 30 seconds, then when you reconnect and power up hit the resume button. I've seen problems in the past where a job was killed like that and the printer would not work until the parallel cable was removed from the printer. The light pattern you describe, resume light blinking with the power light on, can mean any one of the following things on that model HP. 1. Top cover is open. Open the top and make sure there is nothing keeping the cover from closing all the way. Don't forget to check the underside of the cover for something stuck to it. Close the top cover. 2. A print cartridge is missing or an incorrect print cartridge is installed. Install the correct print cartridge. AND/OR Verify that the print cartridge is properly snapped into place. Close the top cover. 3. Printer detects an out-of-media condition. Load media in the lower (IN) tray and press the Resume button. 4. Media is improperly loaded. Remove media from the IN tray, re-square the stack, and reload. Make sure that the media-width adjuster and media-length adjuster are against the stack of media. Make sure that media is not buckled in the IN tray. Verify that the media-width adjuster is along the left edge of the tray and is pushing the right edge of the media against the right wall. 5. The printer timed out waiting for a form-feed command. Press the Resume button. The page will eject from the upper (OUT) tray. 6. Printer detects out-of-ink condition. Replace the print cartridge and press the Resume button. 7. Dirty Cartridge Contacts Use a clean foam-rubber swab or lint-free cloth slightly dampened with water. (Distilled water is recommended. Tap water might contain contaminates that could damage the cartridge.) Locate the copper-colored circuitry strip on the back of the cartridge. Clean the copper-colored strip with the dampened swab or cloth. Do not wipe the nozzle end of the cartridge or touch the silver-colored nozzle plate on the bottom of the cartridge. Unplug the power cord from the printer. Clean the carriage contacts on the back wall of the ink cartridge carriage with a damp foam-rubber swab or lint-free cloth. Use a dry foam-rubber swab or lint-free cloth to remove the moisture from the contacts. If the carriage contacts show noticeable damage, contact the HP Customer Support Center listed in the printer's User's Guide. Plug the printer back in and try printing again. 8. Printer detects paper in the paper path. Turn the printer off and open the top cover. Make sure that paper is not jammed in the printer. Lift the right black rectangular paper sensor (located in the middle of the printer just below the silver rod on which the cartridge carriage slides) and make sure that nothing is stuck under the paper sensor, perhaps by blowing under the sensor. Close the top cover and turn the printer on. Try printing again. If none of this helps let me know and I'll see what else I can dig up on the problem. El Duderino

try to check your cartridges. Pull it out one at a time then try to see it it stop blinking. Especially cartridges that was refilled. Improper refilling of cartridges causes them to stop responding to your printer and causes to malfunction. this was base from my experience.

Printer comes up as category: unknown


Disconnect the USB cable..
Open the device manager...
Plug in the USB cable
see if you get the entry USB Printing Support under the menu
Universal serial Bus
if you don't see it replace the USb cable and try
On the Menu click on VIEW >>> Show hidden devices >>> try to find the USB print support
or the printers entry...
if you see it in some other category install the softwares
through the CD or get the drivers online through HP.com/support
it will work
if that does not work install the generic drivers
I.e open Printers&Faxes(XP), Devices&Printers(7)
click on add a printer
install a local printer
select the port as USB port
and follow the instructions
it will definetley recognize your printer
