I can't erase the faxes I already send


Hi There,

While not as popular as they were before the Internet became a principal means of business communication, fax machines are still an essential item in many offices. They are particularly useful on business documents when a signature is needed. Canon makes a number of fax machines that use both ink-jet and laser technology to receive and print documents. Most fax machines store incoming faxes in memory so you can reprint them, but occasionally the memory becomes full resulting in an error message. Your Canon fax machine's memory can be cleared quickly and easily so you can start using it again.


Instructions


* Click the "Menu" button.

* Press the arrow buttons to scroll through the options on the screen. Select
"MEMORY REFERENCE" and click "Start/Copy."


* Use the arrow buttons to choose "DEL. PRINTED RX" then click "Start" again.

Press "*" to select the "Yes" option from the screen. This will delete all documents from the fax machine's memory.


* Click "Stop" to finish.

  • Paper other than A4, Letter, or Legal-sized papers are loaded.

By deleting the jobs in the queue. Since you didn't specify which machine you have, I can't really point you in the right direction.

Says memory full but nothing in memory


Memory full errors can be caused by a couple of things. When you send a fax the machine settings and the amount of installed memory can cause this. Check the resolution you have the fax machine set at, usually it is set on something like "text" or "draft", if it is set on somthing like "fine" or "super fine" you will fill up the memory faster. Also if you are loading the document into memory before it actually connects with the other machine this could happen. Try looking for a switch or setting on your machine that says "direct". If you have a direct send enabled, your machine will not load the image into memory, it will wait for the other machine to answer and start receiving before actually doing any transmitting of the document. These are just general ideas as you did not describe the make or model of your machine. Hope this helps.

Canon MP530 - Fax Memory is Full... How do I clear?


Check your ink cartridges and fill any that may be low. I got that error because one of the cartridges (magenta) needed to be refilled. The printer was storing failure reports in its memory until they could be printed out, leaving no room to fax new documents. As soon as the ink cartridge was replaced, the reports printed and freed up the memory to send out faxes.

Machine memory full


After looking on Canon's website for this product, no operator manual was found. Perhaps they will post it in the future.

Do you have the manual? If so, consult it. Otherwise, there is probably a function listed in the menu which clears out the memory. You can probably step through the menu functions and find it.

Perhaps another expert can provide more accurate info.
