Putting in the ink cartridge

Hi,

This may sound pretty pathetic, but I just bought my JX500 today and I've been trying to put in the ink cartridge. I can't see quite how to do it, there appears to be nothing to attach it to, despite the diagram indicating so. Could someone please give some specifics on how to do it?

Thank you very much

It is a little hard for words to be easier to follow than pictures, but I will try to help. The connection is not as "concrete" as you might be accustomed to with other equipment, a there is not a box-like holder to place the cartridge in. Below, the "head" of the cartridge is the end with the ink openings.

When you lift the printer cover and it locks into place, the cartridge holder will move to the far left side of the printer. The cartridge fits into the right side of the cartridge holder, and what you probably see in the diagram as a holder is actually a depiction of where the cartridge will end up when it is properly positioned. It actually attaches at the back - along the back side (the head) for the ink nozzles, and at the top of the back to a small piece that juts out and has a V-like projection downward that snaps onto the cartridge and holds it in place.

When you have taken the tape off, hold the cartridge with the head tilted slightlty upward, at about a 20 degree angle. (Be careful NOT to put the cartridge in with the head downward.) Using your left hand, your thumb would be just under the front outer edge (facing you), and your index finger on top. Slide it in slowly on the right side of the holder until the head comes in contact with the strip for the nozzles. At this point, the top should also be contacting the top piece referred to above, just behind the V-like downward projection.

Move your index finger to the top of the machine just above the back of the cartridge area, and use your thumb to lift the front (the side facing you) up until it clicks. You should feel/hear it snap into place. Then you can proceed to close the cover and go on with your use/setup of the machine. Hopefully this explanation will help you enough to be able to understand how to get the cartridge in, especially with the pictures to supplement.

When fax comes through paper is blank. I've tried 2 different cartridges


Replace the print cartridge
When you notice that the print becomes light or ink low or when install new ink
cartridge appears in the display, replace the print cartridge. The part number for
replacement cartridges is HP 701.
1. Take out a cartridge from its packaging and carefully remove the tape covering the
printhead.
Hold the cartridge by the colored top or black areas only. Do not touch the copper
area.
2. Press the Access Cartridge button on the control panel.
The cartridge carrier moves to the install position.

3. Open the control panel and cartridge compartment cover (it will click and remain
open).
4. Push the cartridge down and remove it.
5. To load the cartridge insert the cartridge as shown below. When the cartridge is
pushed to the back of the cartridge carrier, push the top of the cartridge until it clicks
into place.
If the cartridge moves loosely in the carrier, it has not clicked into place. Repeat this
step.

6. Close the cartridge compartment cover and control panel.
7. Press Start/Enter.
8. Press 1 for new cartridge, or 2 for the old one.
• When you put in a new cartridge, you must choose 1:New
• When you put in a used cartridge, choose 2:Used. This helps you to check the
correct amount of ink you have left.
TIP: If you mix up several used cartridges, it is not possible to check the correct amount
of remaining ink. Once you have put in a new cartridge, use it until it is completely
exhausted.

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.

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.

HELLO! I HAVE A SHARP FAX MACHINE (UXA1000- INK CARTRIDGE UX-C70B)AND I WANT TO KNOW IF I CAN GET THIS CARTRIDGE REFILLED AT WALGREN'S STORES LIKE MOST CARTRIDGES.


You should be able to, but the problem is this:
they only refill it, if there is a problem with the cartridge it doesn't help.

there is more to just putting ink in a cartridge.
1- you must clean the inside removing dried ink
2-you must clean the nozzles tomake sure the ink can flow
3-replace any pads inside
4-refill ink

I have heard complaints about Walgreens so take your chances, a better solution may be a company called Rapid refill ink ( they do all the above to their ink crtgs)

Did you try a new ink cart? Most print problems with inkjet machines are refilled carts.

TO PUT IN INK AND USE FAX


The ink snaps pretty hard into this unit. Make sure take the little clear tape off of the bottom of your ink cartridge. Open the fax machine, if there is already an ink cartridge there, you have to pop it out. Pull it from the top colored part of the cartridge. Take your new cartridge with the side with the number on it facing you, and just push it in. It's easy, it just might seem like it's not going in right because it is kind of hard, you have to push it a bit to get it to snap in.
