Brother FAX-8070P memory shows full and does not send all pages at one time?


This message means the memory capacity of the unit has been exceeded. The amount of memory used depends on the amount or type of data on the documents being faxed or copied.
  1. If you get an "Out of Memory" message while scanning the first page of a fax, press Stop/Exit to cancel scanning.
  2. If you get an "Out of Memory" message while scanning a subsequent page, you can either press Fax Start to transmit the pages that were scanned so far or press Stop/Exit to cancel the operation.

When Fax Storage is set to On, a copy of all received faxes are stored in the memory, thus using up a % of the memory available for other functions.
The Fax Storage feature is utilized for Fax Forwarding, Fax Paging and Remote Retrieval. If you do not need these features, verify Fax Storage is set to Off by doing the following:
  1. Press the Menu/Set key.
  2. Press the arrow key until FAX appears on the LCD. Then, press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the arrow key until REMOTE FAX OPT appears and then press Menu/Set.
  4. Pressthe arrow key until FAX STORAGE and then press Menu/Set.
  5. Check the setting. The display will read ON or OFF. If the setting is ON, press the arrow key until the display reads OFF.
  6. Press Menu/Set.
  7. If you have faxes stored in the memory, you will receive a message that reads Erase all fax? 1. Yes 2. No. If you want to erase all the faxes in the memory without printing them out, press 1 (Yes) and then press Stop/Exit.
Note
    If you would like to reprint the saved faxes, press 2 (No), press Stop/Exit and continue to the following steps for instructions on how to print stored faxes.
If you do need the features that require Fax Storage to be On, the stored faxes will need to be erased or printed to remove them from the memory and to allow additional memory to be available. Follow these steps to print the stored faxes:
  1. Press the Menu/Set key.
  2. Press the arrow key until FAX appears on the LCD and press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the arrow key until REMOTE FAX OPT appears and then press Menu/Set.
  4. Press the arrow key until PRINT FAX or PRINT DOCUMENT appears and press Menu/Set.
  5. Press Fax Start.
  6. After printing is finished, press Stop/Exit.

Tip

Can I send and receive faxes from my computer ?


Yes. You can. You will need a telephone line, a modem and a scanner, along with your computer. And before you can send and receive faxes from your computer, you will need to install the fax component. This fax component is not installed in Windows XP by default.
How to install the Fax Component:
Go to Start Button -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove programs ->Click on Add/Remove Windows Components ->Click in the Fax Services check box and click Next. Now you will see a Windows Component Wizard, which will setup the Fax service in your computer. Make sure the modem and telephone line are connected to your computer, along with the Scanner.
Now you have to configure the Fax component in your computer. In order to do that, you have to go to the Fax Console which is located at
Start Button ->All Programs->Accessories->Communications->Fax ->Fax Console
fax_xp.gif In the Fax console, click on the Tools Menu and select Configure Fax - this will start the Fax configuration wizard. Click Next to start configuring the fax service in your computer.
Enter your Name, Your Company's name and your fax (Telephone) number on the Sender Information page.
Your modem will be selected under Select Device for Sending or Receiving Faxes - if you have more than one modem, you will have to select the correct device to send and receive faxes in your computer. You will also have to specify if the send and receive options - whether you will manually answer incoming faxes or if you want your computer to automatically answer them for you.
Remember to Enter your Company's Name and Fax Number under Transmitting Subscriber Identification(TSID) and Caller Subscriber Identification (CSID). These fields are very important.
Now, under Routing Options, you will need to specify where incoming faxes are going to be stored in your computer. You can specify a local folder or just let it go to the default location, which is the Fax Console.
You can change these settings anytime you want by running the Fax Configuration Wizard again from Tools -> Configure Fax.
Sending Faxes from Your Computer
You can fax any document that is stored in your computer. You can also scan a document and fax it by sending it to the Fax Printer in your computer.
To fax a document from your computer, Click on the File Menu of the document and select Print. Then under print (or Print Setup), select Fax in the Printer Name box. This will open the Send Fax Wizard. You can also use the option called Send To and select Fax Recepient if you are using MS Office.
As soon as you hear your computer dialing, the Fax Monitor (as shown in the image below) will start up
fax_monitor_xp.gif How to Fax Scanned documents:
Another way to send a fax from your computer is to scan documents and then fax it through your Fax Printer. This can be made possible by using your scanner software. You can also fax from a scanner using the tools provided by Windows XP.
For this, go to the Control Panel and click on Printers and Other Hardware, then select Scanners and Cameras and then, double-click on the icon for your scanner to start the Scanner and Camera Wizard.
Then, on the Choose Scanning Preferences page, click Grayscale Picture and then click Preview to start the scanner.
Provide a name and location for the scanned document.
Now, go to the saved image which you scanned just now and right-click on it and select print - This will start the Photo Printing Wizard.

Click on the check box for the image to be faxed and select Fax as the printer you want to use.
When you finish the Photo Printing Wizard, the Send Fax Wizard opens and you proceed as described in the procedure for sending a fax from your computer.
Faxing from MS Outlook:
You can also fax from MS Outlook by adding the Fax Transport Service as an email account.
Receiving faxes on your computer.
Remember, you have already specified where the incoming faxes should be located and also how you wanted the incoming fax calls to be answered -manually or automatically. The Fax Monitor opens up automatically when the modem detects an incoming fax.
To view an incoming fax, go to the Fax Console and click on Inbox. Double-click on the fax entry you have just received and it will open up in the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. Fax files are images in TIFF format so they cannot be edited. But u can print it out or email it to anybody else as an attachment.

I HAVE A SHARP UX-A450 FAX MACHINE AND WANT TO EMPTY THE FAX MEMORY.


MEMORY IS FULL / SEE MANUAL (alternating messages)
The memory is full. You may have too many messages recorded in the answering machine. To erase messages, see below. This may occur during fax reception if too much data is received before the pages can be printed out. If faxes have been received to memory because printing is not possible (an additional message will indicate the problem), resolve the problem so that printing can continue (see Substitute Reception to Memory on page 66). If you are attempting to transmit from memory, see If the memory becomes full on page 57. If you are copying, see If MEMORY IS FULL appears on page 67.

Erasing received messages:
It is important to erase received messages after you listen to them to ensure
that the memory does not become full.
? Erasing all messages: To erase all messages, press FUNCTION, DELETE, and then START/MEMORY.
? Erasing a single message: To erase a single message, press DELETE while the message is being played.


If the memory becomes full while the document is being scanned, MEMORY
IS FULL and SEE MANUAL will alternately appear in the display.
? Press START / MEMORY if you want to transmit the pages which have been stored up to that point in memory. The remaining pages will be ejected from the feeder. After transmission, the memory will be cleared and you can transmit the remaining pages. You will also need to transmit the page which was being scanned when the memory filled up.
? Press STOP if you want to cancel the entire transmission.

My fax machine can't receive message, "fax memory full"...how to erase the fax memory?


It will depend on the model and make and you have not supplied that information.
If this information in memory was received information then the machine should print out the documents as long as there is nothing in the display saying it needs toner, paper etc, etc.
If it is not received information in memory then it can only be scanned information for copying or transmitting....again, not knowing make or model...you should be able to use your users manual and delete the pages you have stored into memory.

It's not sending or receiving faxes, but line is working


Hi there,

May I know what exactly the model that you have?

Initially, first check the settings of the machine if it was set to tel/fax or fax settings. Check if there was an error message appear on the unit or better to print out a copy of the fax transmission status. Fax machine will print out a copy of the transmission if it has a problem or it has a communication error on the line or in the other side whose receiving the a fax.

Kindly update me again here.

Double sided copying

here is the manual p4 and p16 discuss the topic:
Duplex printing 1
The supplied printer driver supports duplex printing.
Guidelines for printing on both sides of the paper 1
�� If the paper is thin, it may wrinkle.
�� If paper is curled, turn over the stack, straighten it and then put it back in the paper tray or the Manual Feed
Slot.
�� If the paper is not feeding properly, it may be curled. Remove the paper, straighten it and turn over the
stack.
�� When you use the manual duplex function, it is possible that there may be paper jams or poor print quality.
If there is a paper jam, see Paper jams in the User’s Guide. If you have a print quality problem, see
Improving the print quality in the User’s Guide.
Manual duplex printing 1
The machine prints all the even-numbered pages on one side of the paper first. Then, the Windows® driver
instructs you (with a pop-up message) to reinsert the paper. Before reinserting the paper, straighten it well,
or you may get a paper jam. Very thin or thick paper is not recommended.
Simultaneous scanning, printing and faxing 1
Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory, or while scanning a
document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during PC printing. However, when the machine
is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the PC printing operation, and then continues printing when
copying or fax receiving has finished.


�� Manual Duplex
Check Manual Duplex. In this mode, the machine prints all the even numbered pages first. Then the
printer driver stops and shows the instructions required to re-install the paper. When you click OK the odd
numbered pages are printed. There are six types of manual duplex binding directions available for each
orientation.
�� Booklet Printing
When you want to print a booklet, use this function. To make the booklet, fold the printed pages down the
middle.
�� Binding Offset
If you check the Binding Offset option, you can also specify the offset for binding in inches or millimeters

Fax connection


To send a fax, you will have to configure the settings. here are the steps you can follow;

Remote Fax Options;
You can only use one remote fax option at a time:
Fax Forwarding—OR—Paging—OR—Fax Storage—OR—PC FAX Receive—OR—Off.
You can change your selection at any time (Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1).

Setting up Fax Forwarding

When you select Fax Forward, your MFC stores the received fax in the memory. The MFC will then dial the fax number you’ve programmed and forwards the fax message.
  1. Press "Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1".
  2. Press ▲ or ▼ to select "Fax Forward". Press "Menu/Set". The LCD will ask you to enter the fax number to which faxes will be forwarded.
  3. Enter the forwarding number (up to 20 digits). Press "Menu/Set".
  4. Press ▲ or ▼ to select "Backup Print:On or Backup Print:Off". Press "Menu/Set".
If you select "Backup Print:On", the MFC will also print the fax at your MFC so you will have a copy if there is a power failure before it is forwarded.
5. Press "Stop/Exit".

Programming your pager number When Paging is selected, your MFC dials the pager number you’ve
programmed, and then dials your Personal Identification Number (PIN). This activates your pager so you will know that you have a fax
message in the memory.
1. Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1.
2. Press ▲ or ▼ to select Paging.
3 . Enter your pager phone number
followed by # # (up to 20 digits). Press Menu/Set.
Do not include the area code if it is the same as that of your MFC. For example, press 1 8 0 0 5 5 5 1 2 3 4 # #.
4. If your pager needs a PIN, enter the PIN, press #, press Redial/Pause, enter your fax number followed by # #. Press Menu/Set. (For example, press 1 2 3 4 5 # Redial/Pause 1 8 0 0 5 5 5
1 2 1 2 # #) —OR— If you do not need a PIN, press Redial/Pause, enter your fax number followed by # #. Press Menu/Set. (For example, press Redial/Pause 1 8 0 0 5 5 5 1 2 1 2 # #)
5. Press Stop/Exit.
■ You cannot change a Paging number or PIN remotely.
■ If you have set Paging, a backup copy of the received fax will
automatically be printed at the MFC.

Setting Fax Storage
If you select Fax Storage, your MFC stores the received fax in the
memory. You will be able to retrieve fax messages from another
location using the Remote Retrieval commands.
1 Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1.
2 Press ▲ or ▼ to select
Fax Storage.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.
Setting PC Fax Receive
If you select PC Fax Receive, your MFC will temporarily store your
received fax messages in its memory, and then automatically send
the faxes to the PC. You can then use your PC to view and store
these faxes.
1 Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1.
2 Press ▲ or ▼ to select
PC Fax Receive.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press ▲ or ▼ to select
Backup Print:On or
Backup Print:Off.
Press Menu/Set.
4 Press Stop/Exit.
If you have turned on Fax Storage, a backup copy will
automatically be printed at the MFC.
  • Before you can set up PC Fax Receive you must install the
MFL-Pro Suite software on your PC, make sure your PC is connected and turned on. (For details, see Using Brother PC-FAX software on page 5-1 in Software User’s Guide on
the CD-ROM.)
  • If you select Backup Print:On, the MFC will also print the fax at your MFC so you will have a copy if there is a power failure before it is sent to the PC.
■ If you get an error message and the MFC cannot print the faxes in memory, you can use this setting to transfer your faxes to your PC.
Turning off Remote Fax Options If you set the Remote Fax Options to Off and there are faxes in your MFC’s memory, the LCD will give you two options.
  • If you press 1, all unprinted faxes will be printed and erased
before the setting turns off. If a backup copy has already been
printed it will not be printed again.
  • If you press 2, the memory will not be erased and the setting will be unchanged.
Setting your Remote Access Code

The remote access code lets you access the Remote Retrieval features when you are away from your MFC. Before you use the remote access and retrieval features, you have to set up your own code. The default code is inactive code (--- ).
  1. Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 2.
  2. Enter a three-digit code using numbers 0-9 or . Press Menu/Set. (The preset ‘ ’ cannot be changed.)
  3. Press Stop/Exit. Do not use the same code which is set in your Fax Receive Code ( 51) or Telephone Answer Code (#51). You can change your code at any time by entering a new one.
  4. If you want to make your code inactive, press Stop/Exit in Step 2 to restore the inactive setting (--- *).

Can't scan from HP psc 2400 to iMac computer


You need to set up the software on the iMac. The reason it gives you that error message is because it can't communicate with the computer and imaging software as the computer doesn't see the scanner and can't communicate with the printer's control interface. The iMac may see the printer and be able to print without any additional software because the driver package for the printer portion may already be installed with the OS X HP printer driver support. You didn't mention whether or not you could print from OS X. I am assuming you can. Faxing and copying from the unit doesn't use the computer at all and doesn't need to communicate with it. Scanning and printing do. If you can't print either then none of the driver or support software is installed and you have to set it up. You can get the instructions for setting the printer up in OS X 10.5 from HP. Just click here and it will take you to the page with the instructions.

Best wishes and cheers
