Question about Brother MFC-3820CN Plain Paper Inkjet Fax
I keep getting a message Fax in Memory..but I cannot figure out how to print this fax out of memory... Thanks for any help you can provide Rick
SOURCE: won't print faxes in memory
One of the received faxes sitting in memory is a different size page to that set for the fax machine. Unfortunately, Brother never recognised this as a possibility (Neither did Canon on some of their machines) You will have to do a completye machine reset (maintenance mode 91 and reset with 99)

I can advise you on the 'memory full' problem, mate.
If you get a MEMORY FULL message while scanning the first page of a fax, press Stop to cancel the scan. If you get a MEMORY FULL message while scanning in a subsequent page, you’ll have the option to press Start to transmit the pages scanned
so far, or to press Stop to cancel the operation. In this case, send the fax by the Manual Transmission.
Depending on your typical faxes, MEMORY FULL errors can occur frequently. If this happens, change the Memory Transmission setting back to OFF.
To do this:
Press Function/Set, 3, 9.
This should take you to MEMORY TX
and MEMORY TX: ON?
Then press either the left or the right arrow (< or >) to switch on or off, and press Function/Set.
For the next fax transmission only, press < or > to select
NEXT FAX ONLY and press Function/Set.
This will mean you don't add any more to the memory and may be able to send faxes. There is a possibility that you will only be able to fax using manual transmission, but at least you should be able to use the machine to fax at all!
I apologise if the jargon is confusing, just try to go through the process one step at a time and you should be fine.
Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: OUR FAX SAYS 98% MEMORY
Press Menu, 2, 5, 2. The screen prompts you to choose a fax setting. Press <-- or --> to select OFF then press SET. If there are faxes in memory when you turn Fax Storage to OFF, the LCD prompts you to erase faxes in memory. If you press 1, all fax data is erased and Fax Storage is turned OFF.
You may want to enable Real Time TX so you can send fax without using memory. (Under FAX-SETUP SEND-REAL TIME TX)
You may also disable Fax Storage if you don't want to store incoming faxes in memory for remote retrieval (Under FAX- REMOTE FAX OPT-FAX STORAGE)
For effective use of the memory, you may also clear the caller IDs stored in the memory. Press MENU, 2, 0, 2 Press the arrow keys to display # then press CLEAR.
Hope this helps!
