Re: Clear Memory

Try unplugging the fax machine from the outlet. Let it stand for awhile, plug back in. Memory should be cleared.

if you get the message MEMORY FULL to clear it just unplug the power cord for a minute or so.
But if you want to clear all machines memory, enter the service mode ( MENU and # ) select Clear and ALL.
After these you need to reenter fax settings, such as fax number, sender name, ring count,...

Hope that helps!

Ran out of toner a week ago...stopped printing....did my print jobs and/or faxes go somewhere to retrieve later when toner replaced?

Your print jobs may still be in the spooler of the printer. Check the computer (Windows 7, Start > Devices and Printers. Windows XP, the title was Printers (IIRC)). The incoming faxes will be stored in memory; it can store up to 320 pages. (If you have other faxes in memory, the number of incoming faxes that can be stored will be less. Clear the memory after replacing the toner and printing the stored jobs. Press Menu until you see Maintenance then the left and right arrow to select the item to clear. Then press Enter to clear that area. When done, press Clear/Stop.)

I hope this helps.

Cannot clear memory--NEED FOR WORK ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!

Out of Memory message
If the memory becomes full while you are making copies, the LCD
message will guide you through the next step.
If the Out of Memory message appears, press Stop/Exit to
cancel or Black Start or Color Start to copy the scanned pages.
You will need to clear some jobs from the memory before you can

To gain extra memory, you can turn off Fax Storage.

Print the faxes that are in the memory.

When you get an Out of Memory message, you may be able
to make copies if you first print incoming faxes in the memory to
restore the memory to 100%.

Not recieving only in memory

My good friend:

The only reason why your unit stops printin faxes is because the toner cartridge is nearly empty. Th e unit will then try to conserve the remaining toner for printing and copying. Follow this steps to program the unit to print all faxes, even with toner low:

When the toner cartridge is nearly empty, the machine shows
the “[Toner Empty]” message and continues printing except
incoming faxes. In this case, incoming faxes are saved in
However, you can set the machine to print incoming faxes, even
though print quality is not optimal.
1 Press Menu until “Machine Setup” appears on the display.
2 Press the scroll button ( or ) until “Ignore Toner”
appears on the bottom line and press Enter.
3 Press the Scroll button ( or ) to select “On” or “Off”.
Select “On” to ignore the [Toner Empty] message.
Select “Off” to stop printing incoming faxes when the
message appears. This is the default setting.
4 Press Enter to save the selection.
5 To return to Standby mode, press Stop/Clear.

Be blessed
