    I am merely here to assist you to the best of my ability. If you could please answer the questions I ask so that i can properly assist you then it would make everything a lot easier. I would be more then happy to assist you. I am not sure what it is your expecting here. This fax machine is how old? It is not worth the money to repair if the problem persists as this would mean there is an internal defect/broken sensor in the fax machine. Being that you can get the latest hp fax machine for around 50$. You will want to troubleshoot as much as possible from there you will want to replace. That is the way technology works these days. It is cheaper to replace then repair. As I mentioned before ther are sensors with actuators that break or a very small piece of paper could still be stuck and is triggering the sensor. A flashlight and close inspection is all you can do. These things can be broken pretty easily. Unfortunately there is not always an abra cadabra magic fix. if you need any further assistance please let me know.
    Thank you,
    Lee

My hp 1040 will not pick up fax after the fifth ring answering machine picks after forth ring can't tell the between phone call or a fax used to before changed date on answering machine fax quite working


Set rings to answer
You can select the number of rings that will occur before the fax answers an incoming call. If you are using your machine as both a telephone and a fax machine, we suggest you set the ring count to at least 4 to give you time to answer.
TIP: HP 1050 Fax: The Toll Saver function for the Digital Message Center interacts with Rings to Answer. See Toll Saver on page 40. If you have the HP 1050 Fax and have Toll Saver turned on, set the Rings to Answer to 2.
1. Press Menu repeatedly until BASIC FAX displays and press Start/Enter.
Rings to Answer will display.
2. Press Start/Enter.
3. Enter the number of rings you want (2-7) and press Start/Enter.
The HP Fax rings the set number of times and then answers. It then produces a different sounding ring to alert you to which type of call is incoming.
• The additional ring may occur once for a fax call
• The additional ring occurs 5 times for a voice call. After the 5 additional rings, the answering machine will answer.

Installing a new print cartridge Follow the steps below to install a print cartridge.
  1. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape using the pull tab. CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. Figure 4: HP 20 print cartridgec00259017.gif
  2. With the cartridge compartment cover open, insert the print cartridge into the print cartridge cradle with the contacts facing into the unit. When the cartridge is seated in the print cartridge cradle, push the top of the cartridge towards the back of the unit until the print cartridge clicks into place. Figure 5: Inserting a new print cartridgec00253382.gif 1 - Insert the print cartridge into the print cartridge cradle 2 - Push the top of the cartridge until it clicks into place NOTE: If the cartridge moves loosely in the carrier, it has not clicked into place. Repeat this step.
  3. Close the cartridge compartment cover and control panel.
  4. Press the Start/Enter button.
  5. On the keypad, press 1 if the replacement print cartridge is new or 2 if the replacement print cartridge is old. NOTE: When you put in a new cartridge, you must choose 1: New .When you put in a used cartridge, choose 2: Used . This helps you to check the correct amount of ink you have left.

Jammed document


JC
I had the same problem- jam error with no paper in it. I tried all of the suggestions to no avail. So as a last resort before I went and purchased another one I unplugged it, picked it up, turned it upside down and whacked it a few times. To my surprise when I plugged it back up it worked just fine! Haven"t had any problem since. I don"t reccomend this but as a last resort, what the heck!
