After changing ink cartridge incoming faxes won't print. Does something have to be reset?


Some machines recognize you changed the ink cartridge and some do not. If you shut it down and restart it, this usually helps it reset.

Cannot send and receive fax after refilling PG-40


I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I think that the fax not printing is Canon's new approach to kick out refills from their all in one machines. We cannot reset the ink level indicators on these cartridges and if people can no longer print faxes if their ink says it's low, then they can never use refills if they want to use their fax machine. I think it is also a way for Canon to make more money on their ink sales by making consumers buy new ink before theirs runs out. As far as I know there is no way to fix this problem.

The large blank ink cartridge ran out and the printer won't let me do anything. I want to send a fax which does not require any ink but the printer is locked up until I replace the cartridge. Nice...


I think you can send the fax by using the computer software to send the fax but I couldn't be 100% sure if that applies to this model.

Unfortunately the reason for this behaviour is that you may have a setting that prints a fax report after the send which obviously needs the printer to have ink. If the printer let that continue it would then potentially burn out the printhead very quickly which is a definite "ouch".

It's a pain but there is a logic to it, of sorts.

My HP 640 will not print. Ran the test, no print.


If these are new cartridges, make sure you removed all of the protective plastic wrap that comes when packaged.  usually its red , yellow or orange plastic tab that should be removed.
If these are not new cartridges, you may need to try another set. 
Try running the head cleaning utility under the printer utilities options HP is very good at having this utility available to trouble shoot most common problems.  If you don't have this utility, try updating your printer driver. (basically uninstall the printer and download the driver from the HP website, and reinstall the printer using the latest driver).
Hope this helps..

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...

How can I get the fax and copy to print clearly?


Still sounds like a bad ink cartridge, try cleaning the bottom of the cartridge with a Kleenex and soapy water. Dry it off real good.

Look where the cartridge sits and clean the same way.

Ink jets are dead technology.

Problem with fax Memory


This could be very simple. Check to be EXTRA sure that your USB line is NOT plugged into the fax line. (There's a little phone icon). That's what happened to me....boy am i dumb!

Black Won't Print On MFC 420 CN


Use another new genuine (original brother) BK cart. Do the cleaning twice only for BK. Wait some time (4 hours). If the ink has dryed up, the cleaning ink will break up the dryed one. Do the cleaning again. If it doesnt work, please write again.
