I have searched the manual and no luck...We cannot receive any new faxes. The red light is flashing saying "incorrect size paper". I slide platelet open, remove and replace cartridge, open paper drawer and reset 8 1/2" x 11" paper and everything re boots and sends the last fax received, again, and again and then the light starts flashing again.
The paper specs are; 21.5 28cm, 20#, Xerographic, 92 bright, MP Copy, sub 20, White- Gr Long???
I have tried other paper from past copies and no luck. The reading while it sends the last fax is ; folio ? what does this mean?

Someone has probably sent you a fax on 8 1/2 x 14 inch (legal size) paper. Pull down the manual hand feed tray which is located above the regular paper cassettes and place some legal size paper in it. Hopefully the fax will be outputted and the message will go away. Good luck.
You can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the Auto Answer option, you must receive faxes manually. If you turn on the Auto Answer option (the default setting), the device automatically answers incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings that are specified by the Rings to Answer setting. (The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.) If you receive a legal-size fax and the device is not currently set to use legal-size paper, the device reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper that is loaded. If you have disabled the Automatic Reduction feature, the device prints the fax on two pages. NOTE: If you are copying a document when a fax arrives, the fax is stored in the device memory until the copying finishes. This can reduce the number of fax pages stored in memory. This section contains the following topics: • Receive a fax manually • Set up backup fax reception • Reprint received faxes from memory • Poll to receive a fax • Forward faxes to another number • Set the paper size for received faxes • Set automatic reduction for incoming faxes • Block junk fax numbers • Receive faxes to your computer (Fax to PC and Fax to Mac) Receive a fax manually When you are on the phone, the person you are speaking with can send you a fax while you are still connected. This is referred to as manual faxing. Use the instructions in this section to receive a manual fax. NOTE: You can pick up the handset to talk or listen for fax tones. You can receive faxes manually from a phone that is: • Directly connected to the device (on the 2-EXT port) • On the same phone line, but not directly connected to the device NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there are documents in the ADF, then the device will not be able to receive incoming faxes. To receive a fax manually 1. Make sure the device is turned on and you have paper loaded in the input tray. 2. Remove any originals from the document feeder tray. NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there are documents in the document feeder, then receiving the fax will be unsuccessful. 3. Do one of the following to answer a fax manually: • Set the Rings to Answer setting to a high number to allow you to answer the incoming call before the device answers. • Turn off the Auto Answer setting so that the device does not automatically answer incoming calls. 4. If you are currently on the phone with the sender, instruct the sender to press Start on their fax machine. 5. When you hear fax tones from a sending fax machine, do the following: a. Press START FAX Black or START FAX Color on the device control panel. b. When prompted, select Fax Receive. NOTE: Depending on your country/region, the device might receive the fax automatically when you hear fax tones from the sending fax machine. 6. After the device begins to receive the fax, you can hang up the phone or remain on the line. The phone line is silent during fax transmission.
Sounds like you have the paper size in the tray set incorrectly. For example, it may be set to legal, but you have letter size in the tray. This would cause that message to display. Check your setup options for the paper setting.
Try searching the online support site for the manufacturer of your printer and search for "reset printer" and follow those instructions, or search the check paper size error and see what they say to do....

RECEIVED IN MEMORY
If the machine receives a fax under one of the following conditions, the machine will not be able to print the received fax and will store it in its memory.
When the problem is resolved as described, the fax stored in memory is printed automatically.
Ink is low or has run out while receiving a fax: replace the FINE Cartridge.
Paper size/type setting is incorrect: correct the paper size/type setting.
Paper has run out while receiving a fax: load the paper and press the OK button.
Output Tray is closed: open it. OFF is selected for AUTO PRINT RX: select ON.
You pressed the Stop/Reset button to cancel printing of a fax: press the FAX button.
If ink has run out while receiving a fax, if the paper size setting is incorrect, or if the paper type is set to a type other than plain paper, the fax is automatically stored in memory and <Received in memory.> is displayed. When the ink tank is replaced or the paper size/type setting is corrected, the stored fax is printed automatically.
Also, if the machine is in the process of something else (printing from computer, making a copy, scanning to computer), when a fax comes in it will be saved to memory, but it should print within a few minutes of becoming idle again.
