Please try upgrading firmware before doing anything else; new firmware was released just a few months ago. The firmware literally reprograms the printer to work differently. It's available here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=16279#DownloadDetailAct

Click on the tab furthest to the right, drivers and downloads. Then download the firmware (Mac or PC) and follow instructions.

That may not fix your problem, but it can have some beneficial effects. It won't do any harm, and can narrow down further troubleshooting if needed. Please post back if new firmware doesn't solve it.

My Canon Laser Class 710 fax machine is flashing a red error and the message states ''received in memory'' .. How do I clear it?


You could be out of toner = new toner cartridge.
You could be out of paper = reload paper
You could have a printer problem, paper jam, door open, etc

get the printer part working.

does it print a report if you press the 'report' key?

Error 322 - see printer message


The fixing assembly (The hot rollers) of the printer is faulty. This need to be replaced by a service technician.
Faxes are received in memory because they cannot be printed.

Alarm setting


The alarm sounds for only 5 seconds.When you receive a fax and the paper jams, the fax will be received into memory. When it has finished receiving the fax, the alarm will sound momentarily. When you remove the jammed paper, the fax will print automatically.
