HP Fax Series Ink Cartridges

The HP Fax Series allows you to quickly send and receive important documents. With high-quality printing abilities, you can be confident that all documents you print on your HP fax machine will be crisp and clear to keep your office productive throughout the day.

Replacing the ink in your HP fax machine is often one of the more costly aspects of fax machine ownership. Buying ink is often expensive, especially if you only purchase name brand ink. You may begin to search for an ink alternative to help you to stay within your budget.

Thankfully, with Supplies Outlet, your search for an affordable ink just became significantly easier. Whether you are looking for a compatible ink cartridge for the HP 1040 fax machine or HP Fax 1010 ink, our vast inventory will cater to all your ink needs. 

What Ink Is Compatible With the HP Fax Series?

Every fax machine has a microchip that causes the machine to only print with a specific cartridge number. Whether you use a compatible ink or name brand cartridge, this cartridge number will remain the same and is your fax machine's brand, followed by a combination of letters and numbers. 

To find which cartridge number will operate in your printer, you have some options. If you still have the owner's manual for your fax machine, you will find your cartridge number listed there. You can also open the front panel of your fax machine and locate the ink cartridge currently in use. On the side of your ink cartridge, there should be a small sticker with your cartridge number and other important information. 

Supplies Outlet is also a great resource for finding information about your fax machine's cartridge number. After inputting your cartridge's information, you will see your cartridge number and our compatible cartridge options that are available for purchase. 

How to Replace Ink Cartridges for the HP Fax Series

If you feel your fax machine is running low on ink, there are several ways you can check your ink levels. The first is to press the menu button until you see the option for maintenance. After selecting this option, you will see the ink levels of your fax machine in fractions. For example, you will see 8/8 after installing a new cartridge. If your ink levels fall below 1/8, your fax machine may pause printing until you insert a new cartridge. 

Another option for checking your ink levels is to print a self test. Access the maintenance menu again and then select the self test option. Your printer will then print a report that shows the current status of your fax machine. 

A final option is to wait until your print light comes on or you see a replace ink message on your machine's screen. After checking your ink levels with either of these two methods, you may decide it's time to replace your ink cartridges. 

The replacement process will be similar whether you replace an HP Fax 1020 ink cartridge or an HP Fax 1010 ink cartridge. Follow these steps to replace your ink:

  1. Remove your new cartridge from the box and remove any tape or protective plastic. Be careful not to touch the copper area to avoid damage or getting ink on your clothes or skin. 
  2. Press the access cartridge button and wait for the cartridge to move into position.
  3. Open the front access panel and the cartridge compartment cover. You will hear a click when both are in position.
  4. Locate the cartridge and pull it toward you to remove it from your fax machine.
  5. Align your new cartridge at an angle with the carrier and press it down and back to insert it into position. You will hear a click when it is in the correct place. If the cartridge moves or seems loose, remove it and try to insert it again. Do not try to force the cartridge into position. 
  6. Close the cover for the cartridge compartment and the front panel.
  7. Press enter and then press one for a new cartridge. 

Why Buy Compatible Ink for the HP Fax Series?

Many printer companies rely on the sales of their ink to cover the manufacturing costs of printers and fax machines. This overhead prevents many customers from finding affordable HP ink cartridges.

Supplies Outlet, however, does not have this overhead, allowing us to sell our compatible inks at lower prices without reducing the quality of our inks. Our ink cartridges are also environmentally friendly and contain recycled materials.

One way to think about our compatible inks is as a generic option for HP ink. Like a generic brand you may see at the grocery store or other retailers, your compatible cartridge may differ in size and shape. Despite these differences, your cartridge is fully operational in your printer without voiding the warranty or causing any damage to your printer. 

100% Guarantee on Our HP Fax Series Compatible Ink Cartridges

We guarantee that our inks will produce the same printing job as an HP 1040 fax machine ink cartridge. All our compatible cartridges contain the best new and recycled materials for a superior product. Our manufacturers also work hard to improve their processes and ensure our products are of the best possible quality. 

Each of our inks are also under a lifetime performance warranty. If you would like to return an unopened cartridge within the first 60 days, you will receive a refund. We will accept any unopened returns up to one year after your purchase date. 

Our fast shipping times allow our customers to get the ink they need when they need it. With multiple warehouses in the United States, we can offer quick shipping times for most of our customers, allowing you to continue using your fax machine faster.
