Lexmark printer not dispensing ink


First, make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges.

Second, try updating the firmware of your printer. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.

If the firmware update doesn't help, please perform a maintenance on the cartridges. To do that, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead.

If it still doesn't help, please contact our technical support team.

If it still prints, ignore the ink level indicator. If it won't print, then you need to get a new cartridge.

HOW TO RESET CANON MX 308


I found this in the canon troubleshooting guide:

The machine has a built-in ink absorber to hold the ink used during Print Head Cleaning, for example.
This error message indicates that the ink absorber is nearly full.
Press the OK button to cancel the error so you can continue printing.
However, because printing is disabled once the ink absorber becomes completely full and until the ink absorber is replaced, you are recommended to contact your Canon service representative as early as possible. (You will need to replace a particular part of the machine.)

I hope this is of some help. Good Luck

HP 640 Fax series not printing


If it is a color printer, try printing just grayscale or black& white.  It is is already set to print just b/w, try printing in color.  Basically you may be out of ink.  Run the printer utility to clean the heads and see if anything changes.  A new set of cartridges should fix the problem, I believe.
Hope this helps...

Solid Blank Line


If it's blank, is this on what you send/recieve?

Also if you print something like a status sheet, is it missing on those too? If so, your print head needs replacing.

If its on copies/sents you need to clean the scanner head.

Printer and Making Copies does not work!


Will the machine run a paper path test?
This sounds like it could be a sensor indicating a paper jam, if this is the case, it won't run anything through the paper path (not even a blank page).

Nothing prints on the paper for incoming faxes or copying a document.


i suspect you are correct in cleaning the unit.inkjets if not used often enough the ink will clog the print head. usually the easiest solution is to keep cleaning unit it works again. other wise to clean the print head manually requires the unit to be completely dissambled. it takes a long time to fix it this way. or if replacement costs are acceptable you can replace it. i would just give it a dozen or so more cleanings.
