Question about HP 1040 Plain Paper Inkjet Fax

1 Answer

HP fax/scanner/printer I used a 30V DC power supply for my HP fax/scanner/printer, then realised that the power supply should be around 18V DC. Since then, the fax and scanner add an orange background color to all documents. I guess, I must have damaged some electronic parts of the scanner/fax. I am an electronics engineer and would like to fix it by myself (if possible). Any help on which part I should check and may be replace? Thanks in advance Martin

Parts are probably not available except for modules.

I would say the scanner assy is toast.

I have a clunking noise on a hp 5035 printer


its the drive gears. I've repaired a few of these, you have to take off the power supply, DC controller, main motor, and strip down the drive assembly to replace about 5 gears - total time to repair is about n hour if you know what you're doing. I wouldn't attempt it if you're not a copier tech.

My Lexmark X9350 All-in-One doesn't turn on.


Actually, the printer's power cord should be plugged in to a power source having 110-220V output. The power supply (the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached) converts that power to 30V. Basically, if your wall outlet has power output of 110-220V, you won't need a transformer to convert that to 30V. That's the job of the printer's power supply. Hope this helps. If you need more clarification, place a comment so I can get back to it. Thanks.

1. plug something else into the plug to make sure it is live.
2. make sure the power cable is firmly inserted into the back of the machine.
3. make sure the power switch is in the on position.
If this doesn't solve the problem then the machine needs a high voltage power supply or a DC controller. Good Luck!

Hi Jean, The issue can occure only when the HP printer is not gettting enough power supply or the scanner bulb is not getting heated up properly.. You can isolate the issue by directly connecting the printer to wall jack and powerup the printer and try to make a copy so that we can check the copy function as the copy,scannig and FAX use the same scanner bulb to performe all functions.. If the copy does'nt work try to lift the scanner lid and check if the scanner bulb is lit and the scanner machinasium is moving fine or not .. lift the lid and press scan button to check the functionality. If the printer is connected to a surge protector or power strip this will some time fail to provide the required power supply to the printer so connect it to wall outlet and check with the issue.. There is also a FIRMWARE UPDATE RELEASED BY HP to fix the some of the scanner failure and receving faxes issue with HP 6110 All-in-one Here is the weblink to download and install the firmware update just click on the link to open the download page and then click on download and select save to save the patch to computer and run it to install the update make sure that the printer is connected and turn on while installing the patch The link to download: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=oj-14700-3&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=79477&os=228&lang=en Hope this will fix the issue..

OfficeJet 7310 FAX issue


Did anything happen prior to the issue? It almost sounds as if the DC controller (main board) has gone bad. What happens if you try to make a copy on it?
