Question about HEWLETT-PACKARD HP 2140 Fax

Install Cartridge Message

We installed a new cartridge in our fax machine, closed the cover, pressed 1 (new cartridge). "Install Cartridge" message appears across the screen. We repeated the steps several times; cleaned the carrier; and, even unplugged the fax machine for several minutes only to have the save "Install Cartridge" appear. The fax machine is not even a year old yet. Has anyone else had similar problems? What can we do to correct the problem.

You could have a bad cartridge and the printer is not reading the chip, causing this error. Best way to check is try a new cartridge.

How do I print faxes in the memory of Lexmark X6650 all-in-one-printer ? Is there a "tools" item in the setup menu ?


Usually, faxes are temporarily sent to the printer's memory when one of the cartridges' ink level is not substantial for printing. You are advised to replace the cartridge/s, *without navigating away from the message "fax sent to memory", by opening the printer cover and replacing the low-ink cartridge/s. After the new cartridge/s is installed, close the printer cover and press OK button to let printer print the fax stored in the memory.


* Make sure not to navigate away from the "fax sent to memory" message. You will lose the fax-in-memory data once you turn off the printer or navigate away from the message.

When the fax machine says "close the cover/cart" how do we clear that error message when we have checked over the fax machine, closed everything, and checked for jams.


Two possible solutions remove the top cover (Two screws on top after oepening the cartridge door and two push in black nylon screws in either side). and check the activation lever that activates the cover switch is not riding on top of the switch. Second if this happened your toner cartridge make sure this new cartridge is the correct one for the fax and not a HP modified recycled printer cartridge.
