    I have the same problem. The contacts are good on the cartridge. The cartridge is about eleven months old. The faxphone has rarely been used during this time. The amount of ink used during this time has been minimal. I used the system today for the first time in six months. When it tried to print a report it was unable to do so and the "change cartridge" message began to flash. I thought the "ink" was a dry mixture and would last longer than eleven months. It may, in fact, have a life shorter than I suspected. I would like to be able to reset my system to verify the condition of the cartridge. I've also lost my notes on how to perform a shading adjustment. I may have to break down and buy another cartridge. They're expensive and I would like to exhaust all of my options before I purchasing one. I sure wouldn't be happy if I purchased another cartridge and then found out that it didn't remedy the problem. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.

I was mistaken. The ink is wet. I don't know at what level the ink has to fall below to indicate a failure.

The ink cartridge holder was kind of wiggly, so I put a wedge in the side to push the contacts together more. It worked.

I have just installed a new BX3 Ink Cartridge in my CANON B640 FAXPHONE. I am getting an error message 'Put In Cartridge'. I am not able to receive faxes. I can however send them. Please help.


Remove the new cartridge and check that the holder has not broken. When the lever is moved it should squeeze the holder together. If this is all ok then clean the gold contacts in the holder with a damp cotton bud. If this all fails then its just possible the new cartridge is a bad one and needs exchanging for a good one.

Arm to lock in ink cartridge is broken. where can


Go to precisionroller.com
they have the 2 parts that hold the cartridge in place with pictures so you can tell which ones you need. You can just search for B640 and it will list all the parts they have or the 2 parts you may need are their part# E7393 and E7392 as I have replaced these before for my customers.
Good Luck

What does it mean to change the drum soon?


The Canon B640 uses an ink cartridge/printhead assembly. There is no Drum just the BX-3 bubblejet ink. Could it be possible that you have the model number wrong?

If so, note the proper model number and purchase a new Drum from a reputable local office equipment dealer. The directions enclosed with the drum should help you with installation of it. It's a good idea to have your local dealer clean the machine at least once a year. If you buy the drum from them while it's in for service, they could install it for you.

good luck

Hi, You might want to read the bulletin below before using that machine.
Hope that helps.
Lbcoaster
An electrical component used in certain FAX PHONE B640 units manufactured between September 30, 1999, and January 26, 2000, may present a risk of fire.
This potential risk, and Canon's commitment to customer satisfaction and safety, have led us to implement a special Instant Exchange Program to replace, at no cost to customers, all FAX PHONE B640s bearing the following serial numbers:
  • UKK52923 to UKK55442

The serial number on your FAX PHONE B640 is printed on a silver sticker located on the back of your product, as shown below:

We also will provide you with a toll-free telephone number to call to arrange pickup of your used FAXPHONE B640. There will be no charge to you for this pickup. Please DO NOT return your FAXPHONE B640 to the retailer from whom you purchased it.

Canon B640 printing problem


The scanner lamp is not working. When making a copy, the lamp lights the source document, so if there is no light, the source document 'looks' black. Your machine will need to be serviced.

Will not print anything. Full cartridge.


Remove the cartridge and clean your contacts with isoprophyl alcohol. A cue tip may work best for this. Allow to dry. Make certain the cartridge is secured properly and the locking latch is down.

Error Message


Try plugging a phone, with a different cord, to the wall outlet the B640 is using. Do you hear a dial tone? If you do, replace the existing phone cord going to your B640. Now press the "hook" button on your B640. Do you hear a dial tone? If you answered yes, what messages are you seeing displayed now? Once I know your answer, we can take it from there.
