Hi,

Often, this type of problem is caused by the paper sensor which is nothing but a small switch activated with the presence of the paper(s) pressing on it, It would look like a small tab/lever that would move (to activate the switch) by the paper pushing against it. You would have to inspect this lever/switch and determine if it would move freely. It is very rare for the actual switch to go bad, often it would be just the tab/lever not depressing deep enough to engage said switch.

Hope that this beof initial idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

My hp 1040 will not pick up fax after the fifth ring answering machine picks after forth ring can't tell the between phone call or a fax used to before changed date on answering machine fax quite working


Set rings to answer
You can select the number of rings that will occur before the fax answers an incoming call. If you are using your machine as both a telephone and a fax machine, we suggest you set the ring count to at least 4 to give you time to answer.
TIP: HP 1050 Fax: The Toll Saver function for the Digital Message Center interacts with Rings to Answer. See Toll Saver on page 40. If you have the HP 1050 Fax and have Toll Saver turned on, set the Rings to Answer to 2.
1. Press Menu repeatedly until BASIC FAX displays and press Start/Enter.
Rings to Answer will display.
2. Press Start/Enter.
3. Enter the number of rings you want (2-7) and press Start/Enter.
The HP Fax rings the set number of times and then answers. It then produces a different sounding ring to alert you to which type of call is incoming.
• The additional ring may occur once for a fax call
• The additional ring occurs 5 times for a voice call. After the 5 additional rings, the answering machine will answer.

My HP 1040 fax prints a sending confirm notice after every fax is sent. Is there a way to turn this feature off as it is a major waste of paper.


Reports you can print
You can print these reports whenever you need to. Some of these reports can be set to print automatically also.
1. Press Report/Help.
2. Choose the report you want by using left or right arrow.
3. Press Start/Enter when the desired report is displayed.
4. The selected report will be printed.

Sending Confirm
A confirmation report shows whether the transmission was successful or not,
how many pages were sent, etc.
ON: prints a confirmation report automatically each time you send a fax.
OFF: never prints a confirmation report (You can print one manually using the
Report/Help button (see Print reports on page 51).
ERROR: prints only when an error occurs.

How do u load paper? front or back side up?


Hi, It dosen`t matter how you load paper, Copy paper are blank on both side, now if you are reusing paper with prints on one side then you do it by trial and error.
Now if you meant how to load document on top, then that`s a different story, most fax machines require that you put the document face down. I would suggest that you make a copy from a document face down and if it comes out ok, fine, if the copy comes out blank then you need to put the document face up instead.
Hope this helps.

My hp 1040 fax will not send a fax or copy a document. It tells me that there are jammed papers when that is not true.


check the paper tray,maybe some of the sensor stuck or dirty,just try to clean paper tray with compressed air.
