Question about HP 640 Inkjet Fax Machine

Open Question

I have the same problem as blackwufgar. I did not use the fax machine for some time and now it won't print anything. I purchased a new cartridge and it still won't print!!

The ink cartridge moves over the paper as if it is printing but nothing comes out on the paper.

SOURCE: installed a brand new cartridge in hp 1040 fax but prints very poorly(light )

remove the new cartridge

TAKE A MICROFIBER CLOTH MOISTENED WITH RUBBING ALCOHOL AND WIPE THE PRINT HEAD ( THE PART OF THE CARTRIDGE THAT CONTACTS PAPER)

REINSTALL THE CARTRIDGE THEN TEST

ALSO YOU MAY WANT TO WIPE OFF THE CONTACTS ON THE BACK OF THE INK CARTRIDE WITH THE MICROFIBER CLOTH MAKING SURE THERE ARE NO FINGERPRINTS ON THE CONTACTS

SOURCE: lexmark 5400 all in one

It is observed in branded printer not only lexmark also with HP printers yoou get this same problem.
It is always recomended to use genuine cartridges rather than refilled or any other brand ink cartridges.
As for HP cartridges they are all made under six sigma process where it is very rare you get a ink cartridge issue.
thats why HP Gives 18 months of replacement warranty on its cartridges
The same applies to Lexmark printers aswell
Make a habit of usig Genuine cartridges which will give value for your money.

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.

How do you load a new ink cartridge?


Replacing the Print Cartridge
1 Open the front cover, and then open the top cover by pressing the blue levers on both sides of the top cover.
2 Remove the old print cartridge containing the used ribbon and dispose of it.
3 Remove the plastic stopper from the new print cartridge.
Note You can reuse the print cartridge until it breaks. If you purchased refill ribbons, follow the instructions that came with them.
4 Turn the black spool on the right clockwise to tighten the ribbon as shown.
5 Install the new print cartridge by inserting the recessed first, and then placing
the cartridge into its four holders.
6 Press down on both sides of the top cover to close it securely.
7 Close the front cover.

Vertical Black Lines When Receiving
The sender's scanner may be dirty. Ask the sender to make a copy to see if the
problem is with the sending machine. Try receiving from another fax machine.
If the problem continues, call Brother Customer Service at 1-800-284-4329
(in USA) or 1-877-BROTHER (in Canada).
You can save money by purchasing the 2-PK Refill Ribbon Rolls (PC302RF).
Installation instructions will be included. If you handle the print cartridge (frame)
carefully, you can reuse it until it breaks.

No print on copies or faxes


This is a clogged print head. This happens if the printer has been off for a long time or if the cartridge was removed and the unit left empty for any time.
Take out the cartridge and press the print part on a piece of paper. Any black lines? If not, you will need a new cartridge. Wiping the print head gently with a Q-tip moistened with PURE alcohol (99%) may restore printing.

No print on rec'd or sent faxes


Surely you don't have blank copies rec'd and sent as these are two different parts of the machine entirely. I'll assume you mean rec'd and copied. Sounds like you've left a packaging seal on the cartridge to me - or it's a faulty cartridge. Remove the cartridge and check that all packaging has been removed - especially plastic strip that prevents toner from dropping into the cartridge.

I don't use the color printing yet the color cartridges are empty


It's all a scam. I have the same problem and I called Brother and they told me that the machine uses color ink to clean itself. It costs more to replace these color cartridges then to buy a new one, which is what I'm going to do. Buy a black and white from a different company. It's all a scam to get you to spend money on their color ink that you don't use.

Fax will not print after installation of new cartridge


Look at your NEW print cartridge again, very carefully. I'll bet there's another piece of tape on the bottom of it. That's what happened to me.

HP 920 Fax Half Lines


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.
