Memory Full HiI've been using this fax machine (/phone) for 4 years, and now its saying Memory Full. I cant work out how to get rid of it. Any ideas please? I've been right thru the menus and cant figure out what memory its talking about. Its not the voice mail, as there are no messages there. ThanksRose

Re: Memory Full

'Lo Rose.  In desperation I finally unplugged my machine from the wall socket and went to the pub.  On returning some time later I re-
connected and - youv'e guessed it - the damn thing had cleared itself !  Just goes to show the power of alcohol. The same trick might work for your situation; it's worth a try anyway. Rgds, Seamo

I cant receive fax's

Too vague.
Is the phone line plugged in to the right hole?
Do you know *for a fact* that his phone line rings?
Is the Fax machine set to auto-answer?
Does it actually pick up the phone and emit a FAX tone?
Is there paper?
Is it turned on?
Is the memory full?
Has it ever worked in that location???

Help us a bit, yes? Think the problem through for me.

Unable to fax full document

These units usually scan to memory then memory to phone, if there is a lot of items in memory then you may have to clear the memory, and try again, if this is a first, then the machine may not have enough Fax memory to complete the task. consult your manual, you can either add memory or switch the machine to fax directly on these jobs, this is slower than using memory but should get the job done.

hope this is of some help.

Says memory full but nothing in memory

Memory full errors can be caused by a couple of things. When you send a fax the machine settings and the amount of installed memory can cause this. Check the resolution you have the fax machine set at, usually it is set on something like "text" or "draft", if it is set on somthing like "fine" or "super fine" you will fill up the memory faster. Also if you are loading the document into memory before it actually connects with the other machine this could happen. Try looking for a switch or setting on your machine that says "direct". If you have a direct send enabled, your machine will not load the image into memory, it will wait for the other machine to answer and start receiving before actually doing any transmitting of the document. These are just general ideas as you did not describe the make or model of your machine. Hope this helps.

Problem with fax 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!
