Question about HP Fax Machines

1 Answer

I have a HPPSC1400 AllinOne series printer - it keeps printing out the test page every time I switch it on at the machine itself (it is always switched on at the wall) and this wastes colour cartridge because the test page has colour in it. How do I stop it doing this?

Is it asking to ALIGN CARTRIDGES?

If so, you have to replace both cartridges with new ones.

My printer is missing several lines each time


generally speaking this is a cartridge problem - some nozzles are clogged - U need to find tools in the printer menu then find clean printhead and run the process and print the test page or print quality page. and keep doing it 2 or 3 times untill the quality is OK - If still no good after all of this U can try soaking the printhead in 1/4" of warm water for 15 minutes and try again - if you are using original HP cartridges you are pretty much done at this point - if you are using refilled or aftermarket cartridges try replacing the black cartridge (I am assuming this is giving you the problem described) with a new HP (buy the small one just in case it still doesnt work) oif you have a cartridge refill place nearby U cant check and see if they can physically clean the printhead for you but results are not always good

I have to turn the printer off then on to print the next order any solution?


Many the printers will need more information to perform a printing task. Depending on the task("firmware updates") will provide necessary information to do this. Many times this goes neglected. If you do not get periodic updates for your printer, It is a good idea to browse the manufacturer of the printer. What to do at this point is to print out a self-test page to get current Driver software information. Then go to printer's support website and see if there is an current or "newer" update. Once this is in place it should be tested for it's functionality. If this solves the problem, try this insted of considering the worse. If this does not inspect the operating system of the printer that is sending information to the printer. I have come to understand many drivers for the software that some retailers use usually end up out of business or changed their name. All of these thigs should Always be performed prior to condemning a Hardware issue incorporated in a printer. Hope this helps, Best,Stephen

How do I stop the test page from ALWAYS printing from my WorkCentre 7120 printer?


If I am not wrong you are asking about Banner Sheet? I guess. close all your open applications and go to Device and printers, then right click on the 7120 printer and select printing preferences, then go to advanced Tab. select + next to Paper / output. you will see (print ID on Banner Sheet) select it and go for the option Disable job ID. make your changes save by pressing ok.

How to stop Lexmark C540dw printing instructions for two-sided printing


I had same issue. I checked two sided printing, but wanted it to take the paper back in to the printer automatically. I did not have the duplex option selected in properties and it was showing how to do it by feeding the pages manually. Go to printer properties and printer preferences and I think the tab labeled page layout, you may have to select the advanced button to find the 2-sided options for flipping short end or long end. (you want flip on long end if you want the top of page 2 to be on the opposite side of page one. Other wise, flip on short end will put the top of page 2 opposite from the bottom of page 1). however, AUTOMATIC 2-sided printing will not work unless your model has the duplex printing feature. In that case you just need to go to properties and un-check two sided printing and check one sided printing. That way it will not keep wasting paper and showing you how to do it manually. So you don't have to do it for each print job make sure you change it in printer preferences so it does not keep trying to do 2 sided printing. If there is a job you want to print 2 sided then just select it in properties for that particular print job.

We just changed the toner in our fax, and now it's printing solid black pages out. Help!


Unplug the cable that connects the computer and printer together.
Plug the printer power cord into a wall outlet.
Print a self-test to determine if the problem is related to the printer, rather than the software.
If the problem occurs on the self-test page, replace the toner cartridge. A faulty or damaged cartridge may cause black pages.
Remove all accessories (cartridges, memory, I/O boards, etc.) and try to print a self-test again. Faulty accessories may cause black pages to be produced.
If the problem persists, the printer may need to be serviced.

Thanks

HP 640 Fax series not printing


If it is a color printer, try printing just grayscale or black& white.  It is is already set to print just b/w, try printing in color.  Basically you may be out of ink.  Run the printer utility to clean the heads and see if anything changes.  A new set of cartridges should fix the problem, I believe.
Hope this helps...

Problem with page cut-off


See pages 92 of the manual to "rotate the white roller"

The procedure rotates the roller a quarter turn each time.
You might have to repeat it a few times in order for thit to be set at the right position.
I tested mine using the copy function as well as a TEST FAX to a another fax machine.
Good luck!!

Printing black shaded on complete page


Problem is usually a dirty charge corona wire. There is a cleaner on the drum unit, slide this across and back 2 or 3 times. If not, then the corona wire itself is missing or broken, change drum.

Machine keeps printing over and over!


You need to leave the machine off for a period of time, Perhaps overnight or longer. When the battery back up runs out any stored fax will be deleted. If you have succeeded the first page should a report telling you this fact.

If this fails you can always wind your carbon paper backwards so its not wasting on the unprinted stuff but the stuff that has already been printed on.
