Question about HP 920 Plain Paper Fax

1 Answer

ERROR MESSAGE i just started getting an error message that is not listed in the owners manuel of my fax machine. i keep getting a 'reinsert black ink cartridge' error message even though i never took the cartridge out of the machine. it started about 3 days ago. hoping to fix the problem, i opened the cover, removed the ink cartridge, reinserted the darn thing, and the message keeps coming back. ink cartridge appears to be 1/2 full, or 1/2 empty, go figure. i did powerdown the unit, restart it, and i still get the same error message over and over and over again. i have a feeling it might be the ink cartridge that has failed. i do not have a spare cartridge on hand to test my theory. i was hoping someone out there could explain what the problem might be and a good solution to correct it...

Fax is not going through. says there is an error. If making copy, it is very dark on right and left sides of the paper. Any sugggestions?

What you are probably experiencing is the fax machine is not getting a dial tone from your line, thus giving you a error.

Many times things get moved, paper runs out, ink runs low or the line gets unplugged. We suggest you check the line making sure it has a dial tone, checking your ink would be another great step.

Many times these machines get dirty with would cause the black ink run on the sides of the paper. You could clean that out with a can of compressed air. You would do this by opening the machine as you where to change the ink in it. You would give it a couple blast of air at the exit paper trail.

The other thing is this is thermal meaning the ink is super heated onto the paper, if there is any residue of ink this would cause this issue.

Now the error message you did not give us, I would be interested it knowing the error code before I can make further comment on how to proceed with the sending issue. Many reasons are:

1. No dial tone
2. Paper jammed inside the machine
3. OCR scanner errors

Please let us know what the error code is so we can give you a great solution on what to do from there. We do Thank You for using

Sending fax error message."Phone

No. Most of the time this "phone line error" can be caused by the telephone connection or issue on the phone line where the fax machine is connected.
Hope this will help.

Q. 1 - When I try to send a fax I get an error message that says: Fax Send Report is set to Off Q. 2 - I have an 1/2 inch black line down one side of any copy I try to make.

1. Usually a "fax send report" just means that you will not receive a "receipt" or "confirmation" that the fax was successfully sent. Changing the setting to off is pretty much just saving you ink & paper. When my fax machine report is set to off, I only receive a receipt if the fax was unsuccessful. However, all fax machines are different and have a mind of their your best bet it to refer to the owner's manual or call the company where it came from.

2. The only thing I can think of is maybe you need to replace the plexi-glass on the copier or do an internal wipe of the underside of the glass. Sometimes the ink can smear from underneath when faxed papers get jammed or printed.

I have the c6100 all in one series. I can't copy or fax anything . I change the black ink cartride. I have an error message . Ink system has failed 0xc18a0306

"c6100" what brand? HP I guess. Well I suppose you set the printer to see the black cartridge as a new one! What light blinks? You might have to change the collor cartridge too! try that! For how long do you have the printer? It may have a full residual ink memory issue!
