try wiping the contacts on the cartridge itself and the cartridge holder with a DRY paper towel and then re-install it.

HP 640 Fax series not printing

If it is a color printer, try printing just grayscale or black& white.  It is is already set to print just b/w, try printing in color.  Basically you may be out of ink.  Run the printer utility to clean the heads and see if anything changes.  A new set of cartridges should fix the problem, I believe.
Hope this helps...

Ink cartridges, recieving fax

It sound like your machine is receiving but as soon as it tries to prints the fax it has this problem.

Rewind the ink ribbon so it is nice and tight in the housing. Clean the black roller above it with some cleaning alcohol or equivalent (nothing too harsh).

See how that goes if you are still having problems replace the whole cartridge (not the refills) PC-401.

Solid Blank Line

If it's blank, is this on what you send/recieve?

Also if you print something like a status sheet, is it missing on those too? If so, your print head needs replacing.

If its on copies/sents you need to clean the scanner head.

Cannot receive faxes or do copies

If you still have your old cartridge reinstall it that will tell you if it is the cartridge or not. If you still have the problem,it could be the encoder.

It will not print anything

The problem lies with the refilled cartridge. 1.) Try wiping the bottom of the cartridge with a moist paper tower, to clear up any dried ink. 2.) Put cartridge back in and use the "clean nozzle" feature on the fax machine. 3.) If these steps don't work, it is best to take the refilled cartridge back to the place and have them take a look. Sometimes it can be salvaged. WHY: The print-head (bottom part of the cartridge, retangular shaped, where the ink comes out) is blocked, thus the ink isn't able to come through. This is NOT any fault of the ink refilling service, but rather a wear and tear issue with the cartridges. Most refilled cartridges will work perfectly fine and save you a lot of money.
