Ran out of toner a week ago...stopped printing....did my print jobs and/or faxes go somewhere to retrieve later when toner replaced?

Your print jobs may still be in the spooler of the printer. Check the computer (Windows 7, Start > Devices and Printers. Windows XP, the title was Printers (IIRC)). The incoming faxes will be stored in memory; it can store up to 320 pages. (If you have other faxes in memory, the number of incoming faxes that can be stored will be less. Clear the memory after replacing the toner and printing the stored jobs. Press Menu until you see Maintenance then the left and right arrow to select the item to clear. Then press Enter to clear that area. When done, press Clear/Stop.)

I hope this helps.

Can't fax multible pages

Your fax machine reads multiple pages into memory before sending the job, this is the pool memory. Two things can cause this error.

  1. Corrupted memory, which keeps the job from transmitting because the data stored is scrambled and lost prior to transmission.
  2. Line static, which makes the connection so unstable and slow that the fax can't get enough pages out of the queue fast enough to make room for the next pages entering the buffer.
If you checked the line and it tested good (not just listening for a dial tone), then it is probably a memory issue.

It sounds like you have some bad jobs stuck inside the fax's memory. First print out a memory reference report. It will show you any bad jobs stuck in the system. Delete the memory reference jobs. Then go into set up and you want to turn off the option to store failed transmisions.

The system should store jobs while it is waiting for paper. If you have a lot of stored jobs and the memory is full it will not receive any more jobs until it can print out what is stored - so it would be normal for it not to recieve new jobs until all of the old jobs are printed.
