I notice that when I have a lot of papers to fax, it simply would not fax because is "out of memory". What does this means? How do I take care of this problem?

Well, you can either cut down on the amount of faxes that you do at one time, or you can go to page 36 of owners manual and change your settings to fax in "real time". that way, it will not fill up your memory, however, the adf will not scan them fast and spit them out. it will be a slower process in that respect. it won't fax slower, just the scanning part will be slower. i hope i explained it clearly enough.

Can't receive large faxes


This is not a UK model but the same principles apply. When you receive a fax it is stored in the memory until the whole page is received, then it will start to print. The memory is not split so if you have a lot of faxes to transmit stored in the memory, they will gobble up the memory and reduce the size for receptions to be stored in. Check to see what is stored and delete them to free up memory. If this does not resolve the issue then the machines memory will need to be cleared by the service mode. As I don't know the UK version I cant advise any further.

Hello, I have a Brother Fax 560 (Plain Paper Fax). I am having difficulty receiving faxes. It is not transmitting on the receiving end. What is the problem?


Hi Despite the increase in texting, email, Facebook and Twitter, we still hang on to our fax machines. They are perfect for sending copies of original documents despite document jams, buying ink or special paper, maintaining a phone line--we love 'em. Basic problems like paper misfeeds can be troubleshooted through the use of some basic steps.
Check the Message
  • Check the messages on the display of your Brother fax machinemag-glass_10x10.gif. The messages will be pretty self-explanatory such as "Insert Doc, Again" or "Please Supply Paper." "Insert Doc. Again" means that that the documents weren't placed on the feeder correctly; just follow the instructions and try again. A message like "Please Supply Paper" will simply mean you need to replenish the paper. "Memory Overflow" is probably the most cryptic. It just means that the memory capacity was exceeded and it has stopped recording. Press "Enter" to register the documents in memory and to complete the operation.
  • Misfeeds
  • Clearing an original's misfeed by pushing down on the release lever to open the front panel. Remove the failed original and close the panel. To clear recording paper that's gotten jammed in the paperfeed, open the turn guide and remove the paper. To clear paper from the transport unit, which is in the top, open the cover, remove the drum and toner. Lift the guide and remove the paper by pulling upwards. Paper can get stuck in what is called the Fixing Unit. Open the top cover. Again, remove the drum and toner. Open the Fixing Unit cover and remove the paper by pulling it back.

    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....

    AFTER REFILLING PAPER, MACHINE DOES NOT START RECEIVING FAXES IMMEDIATELY


    It sounds like you have some bad jobs stuck inside the fax's memory. First print out a memory reference report. It will show you any bad jobs stuck in the system. Delete the memory reference jobs. Then go into set up and you want to turn off the option to store failed transmisions.

    The system should store jobs while it is waiting for paper. If you have a lot of stored jobs and the memory is full it will not receive any more jobs until it can print out what is stored - so it would be normal for it not to recieve new jobs until all of the old jobs are printed.

    A friend gave me this fax machiene. On the screen it sais "out of paper" when there is clearly a lot of paper in the bottom tray. However it is missing the top paper tray but has the lower tray. Could


    Make sure you have a receiving tray. You can live without your sending tray. If you have the receiving tray and it says TRAY OFF thats because its not seated properly onto the frame. Make sure the tray engages the black sensor next to the speaker, also make sure you have paper in both trays to get rid of the OUT OF PAPER error. If the OUT OF PAPER error continues then you have a broken sensor in the upper tray.

    Received fax's are not printing. Unit prints confermations and is working as a printer but recieved fax's just park in memory and will not print.


    TYPICALLY A FAX MACHINE WILL RECEIVE MESSAGE IN MEMORY WHEN NO PAPER OR TONER/INK FINISHED INDICATION IS THERE, REPLENISH THESE SUPPLIES WITH GENUINE ONES AND FAX WILL START PRINTING. IF PROBLEM IS NOT SOLVED , PLEASE TRY TO CLEAR THE SETTING FOR MEMORY RECEIVING, IF STILL NOT SOLVED TRY BRINGING THE MACHINBE TO FACTROY SET SETTING BY CLEARING THE MEMORY. HAPPY FAXING OMNIPRESENT
