Busy, try later error won't go away

HP 1020 Plain Paper Fax Machine. cleaned rollers recently. Now I get a "busy, try later" error. Question. If I turned the rollers, would a "timing" problem result that made the machine think it was working? Power down does not reset or default the error. Ideas? norm in alaska

Depending what rollers and how you did it, you probably have 'spun' a clutch out of position so it can't find it's 'home" position, and keeps on trying. If it worked before cleaning and now it doesn't you've definitely broken or dislodged something like that.

I recently bought fax HP2140 and a while ago I saw fax ringing and info: receiving but nothing came thru. It is important to me that I receive faxes because I bought it for business purpose. My nanny threw...


The fact that the phone was ringing and the fax answered the call doesn't necessarily mean, that it was a fax transmission; someone might have called your number and tried to talk, but hung up hearing the fax beep.
You have to ask someone with a working fax machine to try and send you something, then you will be sure whether your fax works fine or not.
If this check will prove that it's indeed your machine that has some issue, then look for any error lights or messages on the display. If there was something wrong with paper, printing head, drive or whatever, you would certainly get some error message.

Will not fax or copy - Given error light


The thermal roll is basically a roll of 'carbon' like paper that is used to transfer the image to your paper (terrible technolgy, and a massive waste of money for the end user....but that's another story)...it likely needs replacing -it's only good for 300-400 pages.
