    I have about 10 faxes in memory from when the ink was low a week or so ago. The offending ink cartridges have been replaced and the faxes have been printed but they are still in memory. How do I get them out of there and clear the memory? All faxes keep going straight to memory and the ink is not low.
    This is driving me mental as I have to go into memory and run through all the old faxes to see if there is anything new. Please help!

    how do I clear fax "Memory"? It still prints old faxes every time I follow instructions to retrieve a new fax from memory.

    all faxes go directly into memory. will not print directly. mode is set on receive fax only.

  • erinnyc May 11, 2010

    This is not a low ink problem. All the reports that haven't printed are still in the machine and are using all the memory. But how do I print them to free up memory?

This could be very simple. Check to be EXTRA sure that your USB line is NOT plugged into the fax line. (There's a little phone icon). That's what happened to me....boy am i dumb!

Try unplugging your printer from the wall, it worked for me!!

    Unplugging from the wall solved by In Use/Memory light problem too. Light came on after I ran out of ink and stayed on after printing faxes from memory. Thanks!

Hmmm just bought one and set it up at neighbors house and worked fine. Something about if you did not have it in FAX mode, then all Faxes would go to Memory but would then print when you put it in FAX mode. This may seem to easy but they're customer support seemed very helpful, did you try to run problem by them, they actually answered in U.S. - NOT BOMBAY - 1 800 828-4040

Tried going to 'memory reference' on screen said no documents in memory even though couldn't fax anything..so couldn't clear memory..so unplugged at wall just as gregwooding suggested and if worked, just as I was about to hit printer with a sledge hammer!

Posted on Dec 01, 2009

The solution above is true, but if it still doesn't clear in fax mode, you likely are low on ink. If there are nearly empty cartridges, the fax received will go to memory . If the light is on, the memory has a fax in it. To clear it, you have to print the fax. First, look at the screen. It should indicate that a cartridge is low. If so, either change the cartridge that is low, OR you can temporarily override this feature until the ink actually runs out. Press the menu button, then the right arrow button once which will bring up "memory reference" on the screen. Press "OK", Now the screen should say "print document". Press OK. Then it will say "Print document TX No._____" Press OK again. It will say print first page only (Yes) or No. Press the right arrow to select NO. Press OK again, and the fax in memory will print. The light will go out, but the next fax you receive will again go into memory if you don't change the ink cartridge.

Laura, you get the necessary tools, get access and remove the old parts and replace with new ones. Make sense?

HOW DO I un-lock the scanner on a Brother MFC 7420?


Unfortunately, the MFC-7420 doesn't have a physical lock switch. You need to turn off the all-in-one and wait for the unit to clear its memory. If the error recurs after you press the power button again, wait 30 minutes and try again. (Note: you will lose any faxes that are in memory. See the User Guide page 11-5 to save this information.) You can find the manual on the Brother support page for the MFC-7420: https://www.brother-usa.com/support/ModelInfo.aspx?R3ModelID=MFC7420 . Click on the Manuals & Documents tab. Then click on the Manuals on our Online Solution Center for the English version of the manual. The direct link to the User Guide is currently: http://download.brother.com/welcome/doc000387/ALLFB_UsaEngUsr_B.pdf .

You can also try unplugging the all-in-one for several minutes to reset the error codes. If the error persists, contact Brother if the MFC-7420 is still under warranty (1 year). If it isn't under warranty, consider replacing the unit. The repair costs may be unreasonable.

I hope this helps.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.

My fax wont work in my ricoh aficio 1515 mf??


Using the 1515 as a fax machine is a pretty simple procedure if everything works right. All you have to do is hook a working phone line up to the phone jack on the back of the copier (the one labeled LINE, not TEL).

Why won't the fax work? If it is giving you an error message, what is the message?

If you are not getting a dial tone when faxing, unplug the fax from the phone line and plug a working phone in, and see if the phone gets a dial tone. If it doesn't, there is a problem with your phone line.

You can also try plugging the fax machine into another phone line. If the fax works on that line, then there may be a problem with the first line.

Are you having problems sending faxes or receiving them, or both?

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .
