The ink may be dried out inside the cartridge. Try cleaning the brass parts of the cartridge with SOAPY WATER or replace the cartdridge.

Printer has full ink cartrage. When I print something the printer runs and works but the page come out blank


if you have a printer fax machine the problem might simply be inserting the paper in the correct slot. Unfortunately, the directions for some printer are really lacking .... i would try putting the paper in what might seem to be the fax slot. Another possibility is that the ink cartridges are not opened... the silver foil need to be removed before loading... Some printer have a print test button that sets up the printer to work properly I would try that as well. Hope this is helpful

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...

Printing Blank Pages


Try checking the ink cartridges and make sure they have ink in them or it will keep printing blank pages. Then try printing a test page by going to control panel, clicking on printers and faxes and right clicking on your printer and going to properties. Then go all the way down to the bottom of the page and click print test page. It will clean the printer cartridges and align them to print correctly. It should work after that.

Cant receive faxes


First make sure your line cable is plugged into the correct place. Most Brother machines have a plug for Line and a plug for Extension (EXT), make sure it's plugged into "Line".

Go into the menu on your Brother machine and select Fax, then Setup Receive and then select Easy Receive. This will usually solve most recieve problems.
Brother machines come with s default of 4 rings before they will answer, make sure none of your other devices (such as an answering machine) are set to a lower number of rings or the fax machine will never grab the line.

If you have distinctive ring, make sure you have it set up in the machine. There is a section in the owners manual for setting up discinctive ring.

If the machine grabs the line and goes through the motions but nothing comes out on the page (no black print) then make sure you are using a Brother ink cartridge (not refilled or generic) and print out the test page using the "ink" button. Allow the machine to clean a few times and see if the test page prints out correctly. If you are using refills or a generic black, you might have premanently damaged the print head. In this case take it to a service centre to have the head tested.
