Hello,

I'm not familiar with this unit. Make sure you are using the original cartridges and not "compatibles." They claim to be the same but they are not. There are some that are fine but their consistency changes all the time. If you are using the right cartridges then it may be the head that's clogged. The head in your unit may or may not be replaceable. If it's a bad clog, the cleaning process will not help. Manually cleaning these nozzles is not recommended because they can be damaged easily.

Try to clean the print cartridge nozzles:
  1. On the printer control panel, press Menu.
  2. Press the down arrow button until you highlight Clean Cartridge. Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles.
  3. Print the document again to verify that print quality has improved.
  4. If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge nozzles up to two more times.
You can also try to align the cartridges:

I have an HP 2140 fax purchased one year ago. I have never replaced the catridge and have used the fax about once a month. Today I am trying to copy and it won't print. I cleaned the nozzle and still...


New cartridge wouldnt print but sounded like it was printing. You can check ink levels clean or align cartridge by pushing menu then tools. I cleaned contact points w qtip and alcohol. What seemed to work is putting alcohol on cartridge where ink is released and putting back into machine wet did this three times first time little dots of ink then a faint print and now it is printing must have been dried ink further then I could access.

My fax machine states 'fax RX in memory' and does not receive any faxes?


There is a Fax in memory. Either, the machine has a paper jam, is out of paper, or needs the ink cartridge replaced. Fix the above and the fax will print and the machine should work in Fax mode again.

For a unit with paper and no paper jam, try adjusting the paper stack and check if the unit picks up the paper properly. If you have ink in the cartridge, try cleaning the print nozzles and contacts. If a nozzle cleaning from the unit doesn't work, do it manually. Use a damp cloth (lint-free) and wipe in one direction only. Dampen the cloth with bottled or distilled water for best results. See your manual for pictures.

If you need the manual, try the Sharp site or http://www.retrevo.com/support/Sharp-UX-B700-Fax-Machines-manual/id/310bh149/t/2/ .

I hope this helps.

Photos print with a faint 'pinstripe' effect


that could be head alignment (most noticible on low quality settings .. there is a procedure for aligning the heads ... or it could be clogged nozzles
to check these things start to print something
then select preferences .. then maintainence then
you have a choice .. nozzle check should be done first .. if all nozzles are working then go to "head alignment" and follow instructions there .. if some nozzles are not working then run the "cleaning" utility . sometimes it needs to do that several times .. if you cant get all nozzles working then you can try "deep cleaning" that uses lots of ink so you dont want to do that often ... if that doesnt work then you need new heads .. the heads in many pixma printers are easily replacable but costly ..
if all the nozzles are working and head alignment was done but you still have faint lines then try "high quality mode" .. in that mode you should not see any lines ..

My Lexmark Z 515 printer does not print clearly especially the second part of a piece of paper. How can I clean the printer?


Hi there,
To improve print quality
1 On the operator panel, press Options repeatedly until
Cartridges appears.
2 Press the right arrow button until Align appears, and then press
Select.
An alignment page prints. Once the alignment sheet prints, your
automatic alignment is complete.
You may need to clean the print cartridge nozzles.
Using the operator panel
1
Load paper in the All-In-One.
2 Press Options until Cartridges appears on the display.
3 Press the right arrow until Clean appears on the display.
4 Press Select.
A nozzle page prints forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the
clogged nozzles.
5 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved.
6 Try wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts, and then print your document again.
7 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge
nozzles up to two more times.
Using the Lexmark X5100 Series Solution Center
1
Load plain paper in the All-In-One. 2 Click Start Programs Lexmark X5100 Series Lexmark X5100 Series Solution Center.
3 Click the Maintenance tab.
4 From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
5 Click Print.
6 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved.
7 Try wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts, and then print your document again.
8 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge
nozzles up to two more times.
If the print quality does not improve after cleaning the print cartridge
nozzles, dried ink may be on the nozzles or contacts. To wipe the print
cartridge nozzles and contacts:
1 Remove the print cartridges.
2 Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with water.
3 Hold the cloth against the gold nozzle area for about three seconds.
Gently blot and wipe dry in one direction (this prevents the colors in
the color cartridge from mixing).
4 Remove the old cartridges
5 Let the nozzles and contacts dry completely.
6 Reinstall the print cartridges, and then print your document again.
7 If the print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print
nozzles up to two more times
8 If print quality is still unsatisfactory, replace your print cartridges.

Hope this helps.
Thanks
Have a good day.

Fax will not print after installation of new cartridge


Look at your NEW print cartridge again, very carefully. I'll bet there's another piece of tape on the bottom of it. That's what happened to me.

Nothing there


Did you try cleaning the print cartridge nozzles.

Press Function once and up arrow 2 times
Press the right arrow once and the up arrow once
Press the right arrow once
Press Start/Memory button
It will print a test parttern page

Once you insert the new cartridge did the machine recognize the new cartridge? You had to press 1 for new

When 1 is selected you will get a prompt New Cart: OK?
OK press start.

If you selected NEW the display will show the alternating messages at right. Align Cartridge----1 Print 2 Set

Press 1 to print an alignment page

Hopefully, it will printed. Let me know one way or the other.
