Poor Line Connection indicates an issue with your telephone line (Page 136). If you are sharing the fax line with any splitters or computers, try connecting the MFC-490CW directly to the phone jack and send a fax. If you are still getting a Poor Line Connection error message, call the telephone company and have a repair technician check your telephone line.
Out of Memory error message means the machine's memory is full (Page 138).
Try pressing Stop/Exit and wait until all current operations finish and try again.
Try clearing the data in memory. To gain extra memory space. turn off Memory Receive (See Page 48).
Try printing the faxes that are in memory (See Page 49).
System Busy error message wasn't in the manual, but I suspect it means there's a current operation in progress and the machine needs time to finish before moving on to another job. Just wait for the current job to finish, then try again.
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....

You may receive this error if the pc fax application is closed and you have faxes stored in the memory of the machine. To resolve this issue,you will need to print the faxes already stored in the memory of the machine. To print the faxes, please follow these steps:
1. Press the MENU key.
2. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to select Fax.
3. Press the OK key to confirm your choice.
4. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to select Print Fax.
5. Press OK.
6. Press the BLACK START key.
- Your Brother machine will print the stored faxes.
7. Press the STOP/EXIT key to exit the menu.
8. Once the stored faxes have been printed, click WINDOWS/START, (ALL) PROGRAMS, BROTHER, XXX-XXXX (X = MODEL NUMBER), PC-FAX RECEIVING, XXX-XXXX or RECEIVE (depending on your operating system).
9. The Brother PC-fax receiving icon will now appear in your Windows Task Tray indicating that Brother PC-Fax Receiving is active.
Here is the user's guide.
Go to page 65 (page 81 on the reader bar on the bottom) and turn off Advanced Fax Operations > It will ask you if you want to print the faxes or erase them. Also, see page 80 ( page 96 in the reader) first. It explains what to do.

And here is the link of the updated full driver and software package. After you download this, you should be able to run the MFC 7820 with your new laptop=)
You can cancel a fax job that is stored and waiting in the memory. 1 For MFC-210C, press Menu/Set, 2, 5. For MFC-420CN, press Menu/Set, 2, 6. Any jobs that are waiting will appear on the LCD. 2 If you have more than one job waiting, press ▲ or ▼ to select the job you want to cancel. Press Menu/Set. —OR— If you only have one job waiting, go to Step 3. 3 Press 1 to cancel. To cancel another job go to Step 2. —OR— Press 2 to exit without canceling. 4 Press Stop/Exit.
That should do it for clearing faxes you dont need you can also print off all the faxes in the memory and I believe that clears it. Enjoy, Lee
okay, im assuming the brother all in one in the picture is what you're on about...right?!? anywayz :) basically i think it is because you have got "faxes saved in the memory" it sounds weird but the scanner locked is coming up because the scanner is not going back to its home position. if there are faxes in its memory, it means that the memory has not been cleared. to check press menu/set 9,0,1 - if the screen says "No data" means that the memory has been cleared and i don't know what to do!! if it says "Enter fax.no" means that there are faxes in the memory, in this case, the fax must be cleared of memory, (if you need the faxes, you must save them before proceeding) turning it off clears memory apparently but im assuming you've tried that countless times.Turn off the machine's power switch and then on again. If the error message continues, leave the machine for several minutes and try it again. the MFC-7820 can store memory for up to 4 days, so watch out if you have a 7820. apparently this will resolve the issue and the message should go away, hence the scanner returning to its home position!! hope this helps
