Can't send fax. Getting transmission verification report stating NG: poor line condition/ out of memory. HELP!!


There are two possible reasons why your printer display the error message.

1. Poor Line Condition
- electrical interference on the line -Make sure electrical or electronic appliances do not interfere with the printer's phone line
- poor line connection - If you have a phone try connecting it directly to line outlet. Listen to the dial tone, if you hear noisy and static, then you will need to call your local telephone company cause there is a problem in your phone line. If dial tone is clear and stable then try checking the telephone line cord that you use to connect your printer from the line outlet, replace if broken.
- alarm system or another device on same line, these interferes with transmission / reception of the fax machine. Try connecting the printer all alone and then try sending a fax.

2. Memory Full
- There is no space to store incoming fax messages. Delete all stored fax messages.

My brother mfc-490cw I can't send or recieve faxes.


According to the User's Manual for the Brother MFC-490CW:
  • Poor Line Connection indicates an issue with your telephone line (Page 136). If you are sharing the fax line with any splitters or computers, try connecting the MFC-490CW directly to the phone jack and send a fax. If you are still getting a Poor Line Connection error message, call the telephone company and have a repair technician check your telephone line.

  • Out of Memory error message means the machine's memory is full (Page 138).

    Try pressing Stop/Exit and wait until all current operations finish and try again.

    Try clearing the data in memory. To gain extra memory space. turn off Memory Receive (See Page 48).

    Try printing the faxes that are in memory (See Page 49).

  • System Busy error message wasn't in the manual, but I suspect it means there's a current operation in progress and the machine needs time to finish before moving on to another job. Just wait for the current job to finish, then try again.

Trying to send a fax error: Poor line condition/ Out of memory


Make sure by making a copy that your scanner is OK, streaks or black bands won't send properly and you need a new scan assembly, Poor line condition is just that, you need a better line or cable, If you go to fax settings and turn off error correction mode it sometimes helps as well.

Poor Line Condition message


If your fax has a handset listen to the dial tone and make a call if the connection is poor call the phone Co.

MFC-440CN PRINTER fax error


Plug a phone into the line and listen for static. Too many phones on the line, bad lines,etc, can cause a poor line condition. Try the unit directly into the phone line, no answer machine or anything else on the line. Maybe the memory thing is it has a lot of faxes that it hasn't been able to send.

Help with outgoing faxes


Unplug the power cord for 30 seconds. Are you trying to fax on a DSL or any other kind of digital phone line?

NG: POOR LINE CONDITION / OUT OF MEMORY


You can adjust the Compatibility mode. This adjusts the sensitivity of the machine to interference on the phone line by lowering the transmission speed:
a. Press Menu, 2 (Fax), 0 (Miscellaneous), 1 (Compatibility)
b. Press Up or Down arrow to select "Basic"
c. Press OK.
d. Press Stop/Exit.
e. Try resending the fax.
If the problem continues we recommend you try the unit on another line at the current location or another location. Always restart your machines after you made changes, that way you will see the results.
