    Hey there man, thanks alot of your help so far. BTW, I'm not nmyang545, I'm her son.

    So just a last question, am I suppose to put the Memory Tx on On or Off if I don't want the fax machine to record received faxes?

    Much Thanks For Your Help,

    I have read clearly and tried all the procedures written on this post, and another post that had similar solutions, but my fax still displays Memory Full. Any other methods I can try? My parents already brought another set of the... blue paper thing to replace the old one, but still it displays memory full. This Memory Full issue has never happened since we brought the product... Any other methods to solve this problem? Thanks

Hi,
I can advise you on the 'memory full' problem, mate.

If you get a MEMORY FULL message while scanning the first page of a fax, press Stop to cancel the scan. If you get a MEMORY FULL message while scanning in a subsequent page, you’ll have the option to press Start to transmit the pages scanned
so far, or to press Stop to cancel the operation. In this case, send the fax by the Manual Transmission.
Depending on your typical faxes, MEMORY FULL errors can occur frequently. If this happens, change the Memory Transmission setting back to OFF.
To do this:

Press Function/Set, 3, 9.
This should take you to MEMORY TX
and MEMORY TX: ON?
Then press either the left or the right arrow (< or >) to switch on or off, and press Function/Set.
For the next fax transmission only, press < or > to select
NEXT FAX ONLY and press Function/Set.

This will mean you don't add any more to the memory and may be able to send faxes. There is a possibility that you will only be able to fax using manual transmission, but at least you should be able to use the machine to fax at all!

I apologise if the jargon is confusing, just try to go through the process one step at a time and you should be fine.

Hope this helps :)

    Just in case you're still having problems, and the memory error is still appearing, try doing this:
    1. Press Function/Set, 4. Any waiting jobs appear on the display. If
    there are no jobs waiting, the screen displays NO JOB WAITING.
    2. If you have more than 2 jobs waiting, press < or > to select the job you want to cancel and press Function/Set.
    3. Press 1 to cancel, or 2 to exit without cancelling.
    4. Press Stop to exit.

    Maybe youse have loads of jobs still in the memory and you'll have to manually delete them one by one?
    It might take a while, but will be worth it!
    Have a nice holiday season folks!

How do i clear the fax memory? i can only send a few pages at a time without the fax not working and i think it's because the memory is full


most fax machines will show receiving memory left or transmit memory left, if it showing receiving memory full make sure there are no paper jams and there is lots of paper in paper cassettes and it will start to print all the faxes in memory... if its transmit memory, you will need to clear those documents in memory to be sent, probably waiting in que....

How can i generate incoming call report ?


To print a report:
  1. Press the [Menu] button on the Control Panel, until Reports is displayed on the top line of the Display Screen. The Phone Book menu item will be displayed on the bottom line.

    wcpe16-menu-but.jpg

  2. Press the right or left arrow button to scroll until the report or list you want to print is displayed on the bottom line.
    • Phone Book: Phonebook list
    • Sent Report: Sent fax report
    • RCV Report: Received fax report
    • System Data: System data list
    • Scheduled Jobs: Scheduled job information
    • MSG Confirm: Message confirmation
    • Junk Fax List: Junk fax number list
  3. Press [Enter] to print the selected information.
Your machine can print reports containing useful information. The following reports are available:
  • Phonebook List: This list shows all of the numbers currently stored in the machine's memory as Speed Dial and Group Dial numbers. You can print this phonebook list using the [Phonebook] button.
  • Sent Fax Repor: This report shows information of the faxes you recently sent.
  • Received Fax Report: This report shows information of the faxes you recently received.
  • System Data List: This list shows the status of the user-selectable options. You may print this list to confirm your changes after changing any settings.
  • Scheduled Job Information: This list shows the document currently stored for Delayed faxes or Toll Save faxes. The list shows the starting time and type of operation.
  • Message Confirmation: This report shows the fax number, the number of pages, the elapsed time of the job, the communication mode, and the communication results. You can set up your machine to automatically print the message confirmation report after each fax job.
  • Junk Fax Number List: This list shows up to 10 fax numbers specified as the junk fax numbers by using the Junk Fax Setup menu. When the Junk Fax Barrier feature is turned on, incoming faxes from those numbers will be blocked. This feature recognizes the last 6 digits of the fax number set as a remote fax machine’s ID.
  • Multi-Communication Report: This report is printed automatically after sending documents from more than one location.
  • Power Failure Report: This report is printed out automatically when power is restored after a power failure, if any data loss occurs due to the power failure.

NOTE: The lists you have set to automatically print out will not print out when there is no paper loaded or a paper jam has occurred.

BLOCKED CALLS


If you subscribe to a caller ID service through your phone provider, you can block
specific fax numbers so the device does not print faxes received from those numbers.
When an incoming fax call is received, the device compares the number to the list of
junk fax numbers to determine if the call should be blocked. If the number matches a
number in the blocked fax numbers list, the fax is not printed.
Set the junk fax mode
By default, Block Junk Fax mode is turned On. If you do not subscribe to a caller ID
service through your phone provider, or do not want to use this feature, you can turn
off this setting.
To set the junk fax mode
▲ Some models have a Block Junk Fax button. Depending on the model you have,
do one of the following:
Block Junk Fax button: Press the Junk Fax Blocker button, select the Block
Junk Fax option, and then select On or Off.
Color display menu: Press Setup, select Basic Fax Menu, select Junk Fax
Blocker Setup, select Block Junk Fax, and then select On or Off.
Add numbers to the junk fax list
There are two ways to add a number to your junk list. You can select numbers from
your caller ID history, or you can enter new numbers. The numbers in your junk list are
blocked if Block Junk Fax mode is set to On.
