How do u load paper? front or back side up?


Hi, It dosen`t matter how you load paper, Copy paper are blank on both side, now if you are reusing paper with prints on one side then you do it by trial and error.
Now if you meant how to load document on top, then that`s a different story, most fax machines require that you put the document face down. I would suggest that you make a copy from a document face down and if it comes out ok, fine, if the copy comes out blank then you need to put the document face up instead.
Hope this helps.

When we send a fax with our HP 1040 Fax Machine, the people receiving our ads for newspapers, say it is too dark to read. Help!!


Lift the cover of the sheet feeder, and clean the filter glass that the documents are scanned across. If you make a copy on the machine this will give you an indication of the quality you are sending, so perhaps make a copy first, clean glass then try again. If the quality is still bad, then you have a deeper problem, such as the LED array (lights that light up during scan) is dying, or the optics within the machine are dirty -this would require the removal of the top of the machine to access and clean -not worth the trouble.
Hope this helps.
please rate my solution :)

Says there is a paper jam but there is not


First, you have to clear the error first before sending the fax.

-open the rear access door at the back and check if there is any debris of paper. If none, close the access door and make sure you hear the snap and properly closed.

-lift the document feeder cover to check for any debris, and then close it properly.

-if error is cleared, try faxing again

Goodluck!

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!
