    My computer has more than enought memory, so it isn't that. I can print emails, files from Microsoft Word, and other programs. I was able to save the spread sheet I created in Microsoft Works Spreadsheet as an Exel file and was able to printit out. Therefore I'm convinced the the problem lies in the Microsoft Works Spreadsheet software. Thanks for responding to my problem.

Obviously, your PC is quite an older one with less than the required memory. You might also have run other programs that might be hindering your MS works 8.0 as these programs are memory intensive! Solution: Add more than 2 Gig bytes of new RAM ( shop around for a cheap/reliable one )to your PC system as the required memory! As for the page file ( find it under 'Control Panel - System/ System Settings - Advanced - Performance Options - Advanced - Virtual Memory - C: or D: or whichever your logical drives you might have' ), try to increase it to 2 Gig bytes!

A security factor worth taking note of: Use drive D: or whichever data drive your PC uses for its data as sometimes hackers try to hack into your System/ OS drive like C: so as to compromise the IT security.

Your MS works 8.0 might require a re-installation after the increase of the RAM and the page file!

Says: Unable to Clean Consult owners manual


When trying to use your Brother machine you get the message "Unable to _____". The blank may be the word Change, Print, Scan or Clean and these words may vary from model to model.
This message is a general message and will appear for different reasons. It often indicates a paper jam or a mechanical issue. Complete the following to determine the possible issue.

  1. Check for foreign objects, such as a clip or ripped paper, inside the machine.
    Open the top cover and remove any foreign obstacles from inside the fax machine. If you see jammed paper or another item inside this area, gently pull it out and then close the top cover securely.
  1. If the error continues to appear, the machine may have a mechanical problem.
    If the error message continues to appear, the machine will need to be reset. Resetting the machine will erase all faxes in memory and the Fax Journal Report. However, there is a way to transfer faxes in memory and the Fax Journal Report to another fax machine to print them out. Do the following to transfer the data and reset the machine:
Step1: Transfer the Fax Journal Report
  1. Press Menu/Set on the Control Panel of the machine.
  2. Press the up or down navigation key until MISCELLANEOUS appears on the LCD. Then press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the up or down navigation key until DATA TRANSFER appears on the LCD. Then press Menu/Set.
  4. Press the up or down navigation key until REPORT TRANS. appears on the LCD. Then press Menu/Set.
  5. The LCD will prompt you to enter a fax number. Enter the number of the fax that you want to receive and print the report. Press Fax Start.
Step2: Verify and Transfer faxes in memory
  1. Press Menu/Set on the Control Panel of the machine.
  2. Press the up or down navigation key until MISCELLANEOUS appears on the LCD. Then press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the up or down navigation key until DATA TRANSFER appears on the LCD. Then press Menu/Set.
  4. Press the up or down navigation key until FAX TRANSFER appears on the LCD. Then press Menu/Set.
  5. If there are no faxes saved in memory, NO DATA will appear on the LCD. Continue to Step 3.

    If faxes are present, the LCD will prompt you to enter a fax number. Enter the number of the fax that you want to receive and print the faxes. Press Fax Start.
Step3: Reset the machine
After the Fax Journal Report and faxes in memory are transferred to another fax machine, disconnect the Brother machine from the power source for several minutes and then reconnect it.

If the message continues to appear on the LCD, please contact Brother Customer Service.

Printer "out of memory"


The problem isn't your printer. The problem is with your Microsoft Works software. I know of six solutions that may work.

1) Download the latest service pack for .NET Framework 1.1. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=A8F5654F-088E-40B2-BBDB-A83353618B38&displaylang=en

2) Go to this website and download the update. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=65f5b806-e6a1-4f92-a656-e56eeda67e3d&displaylang=en

3) Uninstall printer completely (again). Unplug the printer from the computer. Reboot computer. Download the lastest driver from HP website. When installing the driver software, choose (type)a different directory,( ie. C:\MYHP\HP4180\ ). Plug Printer back to computer.

4) Go to this website. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841220

5) Click START, click RUN, type SPOOL. Double click printer folder, clear (delete) any files in this folder.

6) Download the latest version of Microsoft Works 9.0.

Let me know if this works.

I resolved the "remove and check cartridge" issue after reading the instructions at the above address. Most importantly, I replaced both cartridges and the problem was resolved.
The color cartridge appeared to be the issue. It had been in for months and used infrequently.
