Re: Problems receiving faxes in memory

Just had the same trouble. I loaded paper. Tried more paper, tried less paper. No luck. Finally in deparation and trying "everything" I could think of, I pressed "stop/reset" before pressing "start/copy" and now it's working. Very frustrating!

Hp officejet 6500 instructions for receiving a fax? Thanks

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
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.

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.

    "DARK PAPER USED" Message

    I found a copy of the manual, and on page 202 the "Dark Paper Used" message can be caused by three things:

    1. Paper used is colored or stained -- replace with clean white paper.

    2. Paper was pulled from machine before the fax was ejected completely.

    3. The received document support is not installed correctly. Page 3 in the manual shows this support as the rear-most, and it looks like it should be installed with the upright portion angling toward the rear at about a 30 degree angle.

    First, you may be dealing with two separate and distinct problems - or did they both start happening at the same time? In regard to the beep on scanning of faxes, the first thing to check is the machine memory. If you are storing documents, there is a limit of 30 documents (60 pages maximum). If the memory is not sufficient to allow for scanning the material you are attempting to fax, this will create that error. You should still be able to send the fax manually (directly) rather than through memory, if you need to retain all the documents in memory.

    Regarding the paper jam, make sure you have checked every area of the machine for any little scrap of paper or other residual that may have been left in the machine along the way. As you have the manual, follow the cleaning and maintenance instructions to make sure everything is clean and in proper working order.

    Then, I would also suggest that you physically unplug the unit from the power source for at least five minutes, if the problem has not been solved. Then plug it back in and see if this has cleared the internal error. If it is not cleared, your FINE cartridge should be checked and/or changed, and the manual gives good instruction on this as well. Make sure your paper is of proper quality and is not bent or sticking together, etc. According to Canon, if these things do not solve the problem, the unit may need service. However, please let me know where we stand and we'll see what else we might try if this does not resolve your issues.

    If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution. Thank you for using and rating FixYa!
