I have a fax in memory how can I retrieve it

Usually, faxes are temporarily sent to the printer's memory when one of the cartridges' ink level is not substantial for printing. You are advised to replace the cartridge/s, *without navigating away from the message "fax sent to memory", by opening the printer cover and replacing the low-ink cartridge/s. After the new cartridge/s is installed, close the printer cover and press OK button to let printer print the fax stored in the memory.

* Make sure not to navigate away from the "fax sent to memory" message. You will lose the fax-in-memory data once you turn off the printer or navigate away from the message.

"low memory" message

Hello maxxoo,

There is a utility called Process Explorer on the Windows Sysinternals web site. It is very good at showing which processes are using a lot of memory. It may be helpful in determining what's causing the low memory problem. Process Explorer can be downloaded at this link:

Getting a "low memory" message on a Optra S 1255

Go to the menu settings page and print out your settings and see how much memory you have installed.

Next, low memory messages usually point to a data flow control problem or a very busy document.

Create a very simple page of text and send it to the printer. Do you get the same error message?

If you do, then you may need to replace the memory simms because of component failure. It could also be the motherboard.

You may want to consider having the unit serviced.

We keep getting a memory is low message. How can

You cannot clear about the memory. When it says that, it's referring to the random access memory (RAM) Long explanation short, your computer doesn't have enough RAM. You can purchase a stick of ram from for about 30-50 dollars.

You need to know what type of ram you have, so ask someone you know that's good with PCs, or get CPU-Z and check yourself.

My phone and text messages

This issue is happening because the device memory is low. When the device's memory is low, the BlackBerry's Low Memory Manager kicks in and starts removing call logs and/or messages to clear space.

The link below shows some ways to free up memory on the BlackBerry device:
