How to change cartridge

Blank pages are coming through my HP 1040 fax and I'd put a new cartridge in if I could figure out how to get to it. I've pushed and pulled on every part of the machine, but don't see how or where it opens for access. I feel like a real dummy.

Pull keyboard from top towards you, it will open. Flip open door underneath to access cartridge. Dont forget to push the access cartridge button first!

FAX MACHINE WILL NOT PRINT OR MAKE COPIES. I GET BLANK PAGES ON EVERYTHING


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

Faxes come through blank


The machine USUALLY tells you you are low on ink. It 's possible one or all cartridges are dried up.

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
