Its always saying that BACK COVER IS OPEN we already check it for many times but its intact and in correct possition. and also the paper wont feed the machine.


Hi there!!
The message that you're getting means that either the back cover is not closed securely or there's a jammed paper inside. Here's what you can do to clear the message:
-Please unplug the fax machine for your safety -Open the front cover -Remove the toner & drum assembly (theres a handle in the center of the drum/toner assembly, just pull it towards you. -Remove any pieces of paper stuck or the jammed paper -Remove the toner from the drum and check for any other pieces of paper stuck -Once everything is clear -Reinstall the toner back into the drum and the drum & toner assembly to the fax machine. You should hear it click into place once installed correctly -Close the front cover & plug in the power cord. That should clear the message
Hope this helps, Thumbs up if it does, thanks!

Unplug the device and let sit overnight. This will reset configuration and should fix the problem. If it still persists, contact the manufacturer's support. They will be able to help, especially if they are faulty sensors in the machine.

My hp 1040 constantly jams have tried to clean it and makes little or no difference any suggestions. It will print half of a page then it will say that it is jamed.


>first try to power reset the fax machine, then see if the error still persist..to to a power reset unplug power cord from the back and wall outlet then wait 30 sec and then plug it back
>if the error still persist open the the rear access door and check the if there is any jammed paper in there.using a lint free cloth lightly moistened with distilled water wipe the rollers clean. also check if there is a paper jam from the inside of the printer by opening the cartridge access door
>If there is no paper jam and it gives you a paper jam error message then try to check if the carriage can move freely, first while the printer is on open the cartridge access door of printer cover, the carriage will move to the center which will give you access on it, now unplug power cord from the back of printer with out pressing the power button off. try to check if there is any debris or paper that is blocking the carriage path. with your fingers try also to move the carriage from left to right and see if it can move freely. if the carriage can not move then you have a carriage jam which causes also the paper to jam, if it can move freely then try printing and see if it will jam again.
>also try to remove and reseat the ink cartridge.
>if this will not resolve the issue try a hardware reset, while the fax is on unplug the power cord from the back with out turning it off. press and hold # and 6 at the same time.while holding the buttons plug back the power cord and wait till you see semi-full or nvn reset when it turns back on then release the buttons. if the machine will not automatically power back on press the power button. it should ask for you to select language, region etc a proof that you have successfully done the reset..try printing...
>if it jams again contact hp and ask for replacement if it is still in warranty if its not ask for an upgrade

Not receiving messages. "Load paper" and "rec'd in memory." I take out paper, reload, and push stop/reset. Still get same messages.


The machine thinks that there is no paper so it stores the documents in memory. Remove the paper, turn off the machine and unplug from the power for 5 seconds, then turn the machine back on and wait for a few seconds - now try and load the paper. The machine should try to reset the paper tray but if your problem persists then it sounds as though the paper sensor is faulty or has fallen out of it's position.

Check paper error won't go away


All these machines use little, black, plastic levers to detect the paper. One end of the lever goes through the light beam of an "optical interrupter," and the other sticks into the center of the paper path, where it's pushed by the paper as it runs through the machine. My guess is that the jam or your attempts to clear it knocked one of these sensor levers out of its pivots, so it doesn't swing properly. If you look carefully into the paper tray and the path the paper takes through the machine, you'll probably find a couple of these levers, and one of them is probably sitting at an angle. If you can hold the sensor assembly in you hands, it's a simple matter to snap the lever back into its pivots. If you're just working through the little slot the lever sticks up through, you might get lucky, but it's much harder.

Document jam


I had this totally annoying problem this morning. After looking for any obvious paper jams or small bits of loose paper, I tried several fixes: 1) open front cover, release levers that hold white rollbar in place, roll the bar forward to make sure nothing is stuck behind it, snap levers back in place; DID NOT fix the problem; 2) open top cover, remove print cartridge, look for jammed paper bits, close cover; DID NOT fix the problem; 3) unplug the machine, wait a few minutes, turn machine back on; DID NOT fix the problem. I even unplugged the machine, opened ALL the covers, turned the machine upside down and shake it to see if any paper clips, staples, or other objects have fallen inside the machine; DID NOT fix the problem. FINALLY, I pulled the paper feed tray forward, reached down to the feed rollers, twisted them a few turns, put paper back in the machine, and the "paper jam" message disappeared! This may not work for everyone, but it worked for me today, so I hope this helps someone out there to have a better day.

I cant recive any fax


Sometimes the plain paper in the tray underneath upsets the whole machine.

Open up the top of the machine, as if you were going to change the toner cartridge. Pull out the cartridge carefully to mae sure that there is not a piece of paper jameed underneath. Replace the catridge and close the top of the machine. when you close the top 'door' the machine will make a noise as if it is resetting itself - the 'jam' display may or may not clear at this point. Next, pull out the paper tray. You will need to stoop down to look into the gap where the tray normally sits. If there is a piece of paper jammed at the back this will need to be carefully removed. If you pull it out make sure there a re no fragments left int he machine - you can check this by oepning out the piece of paper removed and see if there are any pieces missing.
Finally, if all is clear, replace the paper tray (it would be worth topping up your supply of paper as the 'jam' message sometimes comes up when the machine has a low paper supply.

Hope this helps.

Check Rec Paper


First power off the machine. Facing the machine from the front, remove the rear tray extension that holds the paper and "feel your way" down into the right side of the of the back paper tray. You should feel a out-of-round feed roller. With a little effort you can rotate this around. Take a terry like cloth and dampen it with water and clean this roller. Before puttin any paper back into the tray, turn the machine back on so the paper feed assembly will return to the home position.
