Question about Sharp UX B700 Plain Paper Inkjet Fax

1 Answer

Occasional use of copier-fax leads to dried, useless ink cartridg

And at $35 bucks a pop, It's about $3.50 a copy. Does anyone have a suggestion for desolving the dried ink in the cartridge? The water wipe suggested in the manual does not work, even after an addition three rounds of cleaning the jets.

The heads on my fax machine need cleaning how do i do it


Your fax machine (L120) use dry toner and not ink cartridges, so it doesn't have printhead. If the copies are dirty or bad but received faxes and printed documents are OK, then You have to clean the scanner unit (it's above the plain paper storage and can be opened with small handle).
Hope this was helpful

Cannot copy


You do not say how you have cleaned it. You may be using a recycled cartridge. These are bad as the gold contacts are already squashed and make poor contact with the carriage. Use a cotton bud to clean the gold contacts on the cartridge and in the carriage. Buy a genuine HP 701 and if still no good then a new carriage will be needed but they are not available so the machine is useless.

I have an HP 2140 fax purchased one year ago. I have never replaced the catridge and have used the fax about once a month. Today I am trying to copy and it won't print. I cleaned the nozzle and still...


New cartridge wouldnt print but sounded like it was printing. You can check ink levels clean or align cartridge by pushing menu then tools. I cleaned contact points w qtip and alcohol. What seemed to work is putting alcohol on cartridge where ink is released and putting back into machine wet did this three times first time little dots of ink then a faint print and now it is printing must have been dried ink further then I could access.

Do i need an ink cartridge for the fax machine to work and setup


Some brands of fax machines and all-in-one printer/scanner/fax/copiers need the ink cartridge to be present and have some ink in it to perform functions which don't actually require ink.

My dad bought a Brother all-in-one, and he is unable to scan or send faxes unless he replaces an empty ink cartridge first. If you have a Brother fax machine, I'd suggest returning it and buying a different brand. They waste ink on unnecessary cleaning procedures and force you to buy more for stuff that doesn't need ink.

I'd like to refill the ink cartridge on my Philips


Yes, some have a chip on the cartrige unit, they cannot be reset.
Buy a new unit.
Sometimes using competitve ink in this machine can cause other problems.
The copies are light with background and with streaks, also sometimes the toner might be spilling below the developer housing or copy cartrige unit.
Good luck

My fax machine rarely gets used --maybe 20 times in 3 years i have bought 3 new toner cartridges because they seem to dry out,, i have removed and shaken it to get SOME ink out. Is it the drum , am i...


That really sux. No way should these cartridges fail unless they are totally out of toner.

A drum should last 12,000 prints.

Are they refills or Genuine Brother cartridges?

I would email Brother Tech Support on this issue.

Though the ink level it said was "6 / 8", when I removed the cartridge to examine it looked bone dry empty to me. I replaced the ink cartridge. It works fine, and reports the ink level as "8 / 8".

How can I get the fax and copy to print clearly?


Still sounds like a bad ink cartridge, try cleaning the bottom of the cartridge with a Kleenex and soapy water. Dry it off real good.

Look where the cartridge sits and clean the same way.

Ink jets are dead technology.

Can't print copies


Can't find the 1st post as to the suggestions so I'll just give you alist of things to check.


Can't print because it comes out blank????

1- original docs are facing the wrong way
2- ink is dry, check the cartridge head
3- try the care & maint. area of the manual
