I've had this 830 for about 5 months now and am very impressed with its speed, but the glitches, Holy Smoke.
The one you're describing is one I've had before. The only solution I've found is to unplug the machine, wait about one minute and plug it back in. All is then OK. The problem with that system is that if there are any more docs in memory, you've lost them.
I'm having a similar problem with receiving faxes. The first sheet prints, and then the display indicates that there is a 'fax output error check page size and press OK'. The memory light shows that there are more pages of the fax (I presume) that need to be printed, but they won't be because of this error. Of course one checks the size and presses OK but it simply prints out the same page followed by the same error message. This could go on for eons if one would allow it. I then have to unplug the printer, wait and plug it back in, and again all is well, but I've lost the documents in memory.
There are so many little quirks with this machine I am almost tempted to go back to my miserable HP, but I've chosen to keep working with the MP830 with the hopes that after years of learning its idiosyncracies, there will eventually be a class action suit against Canon which I will be part of, to cover the cost of psych services and physical therapy (bas shoulder from throwing the machine out the window.

This was drivving me nuts for a while also. The machine just kept printing the same error report over and over. Finally I went into the fax settings and turned off the error reporting and the memory cleared and it does not try and print the report any more. I think the problem may have been caused by the paper size switching to A4 accidentaly. This problem combined with ink cartridges that don't always register and poor print quality, I wont be buying another Cannon printer ever.

In my case, this error was caused by the fact that a fax report was waiting to be printed, while the fax printing paper was set to come from the cassette, which had no paper - and so I kept getting this error message. Once I changed the setting to the rear tray (see below), which had paper, the report printed and the problem went away.

To change the fax-paper-source setting, press the "settings" button on the printer. Next, arrow down to "fax paper source," and then arrow right/left to "rear tray," or wherever you have paper.

Check your paper size. Mine seems to default to A4. When I changed it to 8.5x11, the problem was resolved.

Brother FAX-8070P memory shows full and does not send all pages at one time?


This message means the memory capacity of the unit has been exceeded. The amount of memory used depends on the amount or type of data on the documents being faxed or copied.
  1. If you get an "Out of Memory" message while scanning the first page of a fax, press Stop/Exit to cancel scanning.
  2. If you get an "Out of Memory" message while scanning a subsequent page, you can either press Fax Start to transmit the pages that were scanned so far or press Stop/Exit to cancel the operation.

When Fax Storage is set to On, a copy of all received faxes are stored in the memory, thus using up a % of the memory available for other functions.
The Fax Storage feature is utilized for Fax Forwarding, Fax Paging and Remote Retrieval. If you do not need these features, verify Fax Storage is set to Off by doing the following:
  1. Press the Menu/Set key.
  2. Press the arrow key until FAX appears on the LCD. Then, press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the arrow key until REMOTE FAX OPT appears and then press Menu/Set.
  4. Pressthe arrow key until FAX STORAGE and then press Menu/Set.
  5. Check the setting. The display will read ON or OFF. If the setting is ON, press the arrow key until the display reads OFF.
  6. Press Menu/Set.
  7. If you have faxes stored in the memory, you will receive a message that reads Erase all fax? 1. Yes 2. No. If you want to erase all the faxes in the memory without printing them out, press 1 (Yes) and then press Stop/Exit.
Note
    If you would like to reprint the saved faxes, press 2 (No), press Stop/Exit and continue to the following steps for instructions on how to print stored faxes.
If you do need the features that require Fax Storage to be On, the stored faxes will need to be erased or printed to remove them from the memory and to allow additional memory to be available. Follow these steps to print the stored faxes:
  1. Press the Menu/Set key.
  2. Press the arrow key until FAX appears on the LCD and press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the arrow key until REMOTE FAX OPT appears and then press Menu/Set.
  4. Press the arrow key until PRINT FAX or PRINT DOCUMENT appears and press Menu/Set.
  5. Press Fax Start.
  6. After printing is finished, press Stop/Exit.

Fax connection


To send a fax, you will have to configure the settings. here are the steps you can follow;

Remote Fax Options;
You can only use one remote fax option at a time:
Fax Forwarding—OR—Paging—OR—Fax Storage—OR—PC FAX Receive—OR—Off.
You can change your selection at any time (Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1).

Setting up Fax Forwarding

When you select Fax Forward, your MFC stores the received fax in the memory. The MFC will then dial the fax number you’ve programmed and forwards the fax message.
  1. Press "Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1".
  2. Press ▲ or ▼ to select "Fax Forward". Press "Menu/Set". The LCD will ask you to enter the fax number to which faxes will be forwarded.
  3. Enter the forwarding number (up to 20 digits). Press "Menu/Set".
  4. Press ▲ or ▼ to select "Backup Print:On or Backup Print:Off". Press "Menu/Set".
If you select "Backup Print:On", the MFC will also print the fax at your MFC so you will have a copy if there is a power failure before it is forwarded.
5. Press "Stop/Exit".

Programming your pager number When Paging is selected, your MFC dials the pager number you’ve
programmed, and then dials your Personal Identification Number (PIN). This activates your pager so you will know that you have a fax
message in the memory.
1. Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1.
2. Press ▲ or ▼ to select Paging.
3 . Enter your pager phone number
followed by # # (up to 20 digits). Press Menu/Set.
Do not include the area code if it is the same as that of your MFC. For example, press 1 8 0 0 5 5 5 1 2 3 4 # #.
4. If your pager needs a PIN, enter the PIN, press #, press Redial/Pause, enter your fax number followed by # #. Press Menu/Set. (For example, press 1 2 3 4 5 # Redial/Pause 1 8 0 0 5 5 5
1 2 1 2 # #) —OR— If you do not need a PIN, press Redial/Pause, enter your fax number followed by # #. Press Menu/Set. (For example, press Redial/Pause 1 8 0 0 5 5 5 1 2 1 2 # #)
5. Press Stop/Exit.
■ You cannot change a Paging number or PIN remotely.
■ If you have set Paging, a backup copy of the received fax will
automatically be printed at the MFC.

Setting Fax Storage
If you select Fax Storage, your MFC stores the received fax in the
memory. You will be able to retrieve fax messages from another
location using the Remote Retrieval commands.
1 Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1.
2 Press ▲ or ▼ to select
Fax Storage.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.
Setting PC Fax Receive
If you select PC Fax Receive, your MFC will temporarily store your
received fax messages in its memory, and then automatically send
the faxes to the PC. You can then use your PC to view and store
these faxes.
1 Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1.
2 Press ▲ or ▼ to select
PC Fax Receive.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press ▲ or ▼ to select
Backup Print:On or
Backup Print:Off.
Press Menu/Set.
4 Press Stop/Exit.
If you have turned on Fax Storage, a backup copy will
automatically be printed at the MFC.
  • Before you can set up PC Fax Receive you must install the
MFL-Pro Suite software on your PC, make sure your PC is connected and turned on. (For details, see Using Brother PC-FAX software on page 5-1 in Software User’s Guide on
the CD-ROM.)
  • If you select Backup Print:On, the MFC will also print the fax at your MFC so you will have a copy if there is a power failure before it is sent to the PC.
■ If you get an error message and the MFC cannot print the faxes in memory, you can use this setting to transfer your faxes to your PC.
Turning off Remote Fax Options If you set the Remote Fax Options to Off and there are faxes in your MFC’s memory, the LCD will give you two options.
  • If you press 1, all unprinted faxes will be printed and erased
before the setting turns off. If a backup copy has already been
printed it will not be printed again.
  • If you press 2, the memory will not be erased and the setting will be unchanged.
Setting your Remote Access Code

The remote access code lets you access the Remote Retrieval features when you are away from your MFC. Before you use the remote access and retrieval features, you have to set up your own code. The default code is inactive code (--- ).
  1. Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 2.
  2. Enter a three-digit code using numbers 0-9 or . Press Menu/Set. (The preset ‘ ’ cannot be changed.)
  3. Press Stop/Exit. Do not use the same code which is set in your Fax Receive Code ( 51) or Telephone Answer Code (#51). You can change your code at any time by entering a new one.
  4. If you want to make your code inactive, press Stop/Exit in Step 2 to restore the inactive setting (--- *).

Canon jx200 fax machine


The fax automatically turns off Auto Print and stores faxes in memory when either ink or paper is low. The memory will store up to 30 transmissions or 60 pages maximum, so it is important not to leave this too long if you have heavy transmission volume.

Faxes can be retrieved as follows.

If you want to choose only certain faxes to print:
1. Print a list of documents in memory for reference:
Press Menu. Use arrows (up & down) to select Memory Reference, then press Start/Copy. Use the arrows to select Doc Memory List, and again press Start/Copy.
2. Print a document from memory (using the list printed in #1):
Press Menu. Use arrows (up & down) to select Memory Reference, then press Start/Copy. Use the arrows to select Print Document, and again press Start/Copy. The LCD will show the first number in memory (e.g., TX/RX NO. 0001).

Use the arrows to choose the document you want to print, and press Start/Copy. The LCD will then toggle between "1st page only?" and "Yes=(*) No=(#)". Press * to print only the first page, or # to print all pages.
3. Delete selected document(s) from memory:
Press Menu. Use arrows (up & down) to select Memory Reference, then press Start/Copy. Use the arrows to select Delete Doc, and again press Start/Copy. The LCD will show the first number in memory (e.g., TX/RX NO. 0001).

Use the arrows to choose the document you want to delete, and press Start/Copy. [Note - if the arrows do not result in another number displaying, there is only one document in memory.] The LCD will show "Yes=(*) No=(#)". Press * to delete the document. Continue to select documents until each document you want to delete has been handled.

If you want to print all unprinted documents in memory:
1. If you want to have a list of documents in memory for reference before performing this procedure, to be sure you have them all, follow step 1 from the above procedure for printing selected documents.]
2. Press Menu. Use arrows (up & down) to select Memory Reference, then press Start/Copy. Use the arrows to select Print All New RX, and again press Start/Copy.
3. Delete all printed docs from memory:
Immediately after printing all documents, you will have the choice of deleting all documents. The LCD will display "Yes=(*) No=(#)". Press * delete all, or # to retain in memory.

To delete all documents at a later time:
Press Menu. Use arrows (up & down) to select Memory Reference, then press Start/Copy. Use the arrows to select Delete Printed RX, and again press Start/Copy. The LCD will display "Yes=(*) No=(#)". Press * delete all, or # to retain in memory. To finish then, press Stop.
