Re: Machine memory full

After looking on Canon's website for this product, no operator manual was found. Perhaps they will post it in the future.

Do you have the manual? If so, consult it. Otherwise, there is probably a function listed in the menu which clears out the memory. You can probably step through the menu functions and find it.

Perhaps another expert can provide more accurate info.

Memory full

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.

copy and paste the complete link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Error 870

It seems to me that when you are faxing, your machine is probably set to save the fax to memory. If this is the case you should just have to delete whatever has been saved, through the control panel menu.

Canon MP530 - Fax Memory is Full... How do I clear?

Check your ink cartridges and fill any that may be low. I got that error because one of the cartridges (magenta) needed to be refilled. The printer was storing failure reports in its memory until they could be printed out, leaving no room to fax new documents. As soon as the ink cartridge was replaced, the reports printed and freed up the memory to send out faxes.
