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....

How Do I clear the memory? 8860dn


Hi,

Ever have blinking lights on your printer that just will not go away? Ever install a new ink cartridge in your printer and it still thinks the old one is there? you can try one simple thing: unplug it. The first thing to remember about this solution is that unplugging the printer is not the same as turning the printer off. If you have error messages or cartridge communication problems, then turning off the printer is not going to do anything. It has to be physically unplugged from the wall or the back of the printer itself (you don’t have to unplug the printer from the computer). The second and most important thing is that the printer must be unplugged for at least one minute. I am sure, you will solve your memory problem.

Thanks

Cannot clear memory--NEED FOR WORK ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!


Out of Memory message
If the memory becomes full while you are making copies, the LCD
message will guide you through the next step.
If the Out of Memory message appears, press Stop/Exit to
cancel or Black Start or Color Start to copy the scanned pages.
You will need to clear some jobs from the memory before you can
continue.

To gain extra memory, you can turn off Fax Storage.

—OR—
Print the faxes that are in the memory.

When you get an Out of Memory message, you may be able
to make copies if you first print incoming faxes in the memory to
restore the memory to 100%.

Replace the drum. The drum is failing.
When you replace the drum open the front door of the machine where thr drum and toner is.
Hit the clear/back button. Press 1
That resets the drum count after you replaced the unit.

Brother mfc-8860dn is locking up; when it is power on the fax button is on and you can not go to copy. No button will function.


Unplug it for 15 seconds then plug it back in. This will do a "hard reset" and will clear the static memory there by altering the settings enough to allow for the function of the bottons. Poke the bottons with your finger on the front of the machine. Then spew a mouth full of sea water onto the top of the device. This will do a "spirtitual reset" and clear the esoteric memory there by altering the very fabric of the universe itself right there where the machine lives in the universe causeing the machine to see things your way from now on.
