Question about HP 920 Plain Paper Fax

1 Answer

Lubrication? Mt HP Fax 920 has started making a squeeking noise as the print head moves back and forth. Is this a sign of needing lubrication? or another problem? If it's lubrication, what lubrication do I use and where do I apply it?

Re: lubrication?

It does sound as though it could be a lube issue. Use a light white grease to lube the bar the head runs on. Do not use things like WD40 or 3-in-1 as they can be damaging. Also check that any FCC cable to the moving parts are not just catching on an inner surface somewhere. This can sound like finger nails down a chalk board.

Canon fax Jx300shows error B200 Pls help

Try keeping the paper only in the bottom tray (there's a tray in the bottom) Try pulling any paper out of the top and just close that top tray. Open up the head so that u can see the ink cartridges and turn the printer on and off and maybe it will center itself again. If it's still not working (even if lights aren't red and print head wont align in the center) try manually moving the head back and forth like 18 times so you can lubricate that rail in the back that's holding it. After that, re-turn it off and on again.

Machine sends fine. Machine does not receive readable copy.

Is this connected to a computer? if so you can run head cleaning utility from the print driver properties. This will pump ink to the head and flush out the clogs. That is the easist way to make sure you don't have a head problem. If it is not connect to the PC then scroll thru the menu to see if there is a maintanence section and look for head cleaning.

Hope this Helps

Try making a copy of something.
If the copy comes out the same way as your faxes, then the ink cartridge is either dirty or clogged.
You can try removing the cartridge and checking the bottom of it.
You can even wipe the bottom of the cartridge with some denatured alcohol.
If this doesnt work, then purchase a new cartridge and your problem should be solved.
Good luck.
Hope this helps.
