Just unplug it for about 10 minutes and plug it back in. this includes unplugging the phone line as it gets power from there as well. you will likely have to restore your settings tho.

How do I clear the in use alarm on a canon mx340 printer?


The in use alarm appears to be related to fax reception and printing. There are some options below that you could try:-
Memory Reception If the machine receives a fax under one of the following conditions, it will not be able to print the received fax and will store it in its memory. The In Use/Memory lamp is lit and Received in memory is displayed on the LCD. When the problem is resolved as described, the fax stored in memory is printed automatically.
  • Ink has run out: Replace the FINE Cartridge.
    i_green_arrow.gifRoutine Maintenance
    i_note_e.gifNote
    • You can set the machine to forcibly print a received fax even if the ink has run out.
      However, part or all of the fax may not be printed since the ink has run out.
      Also, the contents of the fax will not be stored in memory.
      If the ink has already run out, we recommend that OFF be selected for Auto print in FAX user settings to store the received fax in memory and print the fax manually after replacing the FINE Cartridge. After you replace the FINE Cartridge and select ON for Auto print, the fax stored in memory will be printed automatically.
  • Paper has run out: Load the paper and press the OK button.
  • A different size of paper from that specified by Page size is loaded:
    Load the same size of paper as that specified by Page size, then press the OK button.
  • Page size is set to other than A4, 8.5"x11"(LTR), or Legal (or 8.5"x14"):
    Set Page size to A4, 8.5"x11"(LTR), or Legal (or 8.5"x14").
  • Media type is set to other than Plain paper:
    Set Media type to Plain paper.
  • You pressed the Stop button to cancel printing of a fax:
    Press the FAX button
Alternatively turn the printer off, open the devices and printers section of Control Panel, right click on your printer and select "see what's printing" and left click on this. A window will pop up which may or may not contain a list of documents. If it does these must be cancelled (Menu - Printer - Cancel all documents). Once all documents have gone from the list turn the printer on and try to print.
Other than the above suggestions I would need to know more about your OS and exact problem. Hope this helps.

How to clear Memory?


If the memory is filled up when a fax is received ... when there's no paper, or it is jammed (so that it can't print) ... you can print the fax (in Memory, after putting in new paper, or fixing the jam) by pressing the START/MEMORY button. After it prints, the memory is cleared.

If the memory is filled up when you're scanning and storing a document into memory (to be fax out), press the START/MEMORY key to transmit the pages that's already in memory. After transmitting the content in memory, the memory will be cleared/emptied. You'll need to scan the remaining pages to transmit (as a separate fax)

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.

When the HP Office jet series all-in-one front panel screen displays Memory Full, the HP Office jet all-in-one is not able to send, receive or forward faxes. Copying will also not work. WORKAROUND: Though the memory buffer should clear itself automatically after proceeding with the next task, like receiving a fax or starting a copy job, these suggestions below may help you clearing the memory buffer by:
  • Add paper to the HP Officejet series paper tray
  • Clear a possible print jam and proceed printing the fax.
  • Reduce the copying or faxing resolution via the front panel's menu.
  • Use the HP Manager to send a (group) fax or making a copy. More memory is available this way, as the HP Manager utilizes the PC memory. When sending a group fax, the HP Officejet all-in-one's memory is filled to capacity. To copy in color is only possible from the HP Officejet Manager.
  • Press START to clear the message. If this message persists, unplug the power cord, and after at least 15 seconds plug the power cord in.
CAUSE: The HP Officejet series memory may be full due to: Copying on Photo quality or sending a group dial, which will use an extensive part of the internal memory's capacity. No paper in the paper supply tray, while receiving a fax. This may result that the data remains in the buffer. Print jam while receiving a fax or copying. The data is still stored in the buffer. System error displayed on the HP Officejet display window. SUMMARY: The HP Officejet series will not fax or copy without sufficient memory to store the data of the page in the buffer before printing the receiving fax or the copy.

MFC 440-CN out of memory error, fax memory is full I cn't send any more faxes, I called Brother tech support they told me that there is no way to clear the memory, that I had to leave the printer unplugged...


Try this :
To resolve this situation do the following:

1. If another operation is in progress (example: receiving a fax,
printing, etc), press STOP/EXIT, wait until it's completed and then try
again.

2. Clear the machines memory. This can be done by turning off Advanced
Fax Operations.

a. Press MENU.

b. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to choose Fax.

c. Press OK.

d. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to choose Advanced Fax Operation.

e. Press OK.

f Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to choose Fwd/Page/Store.

g. Press OK.

h. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW to choose Off.

i. Press OK.

j. Press STOP/EXIT.

If received faxes are left in your machine's memory when you change the
Advanced Fax Operations and a backup copy has already been printed, the
LCD will ask:

Erase All Fax?

Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

If received faxes are left in your machine's memory when you change the
Advanced Fax Operations and a backup copy has not yet been printed, the
LCD will ask:

Print All Fax?

Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

# If you press 1, faxes in the memory will be erased or printed before
the setting changes.

# If you press 2, faxes in the memory will not be erased or printed and
the setting will be unchanged.

k. Try your operation again.

Good luck...

Machine keeps printing over and over!


You need to leave the machine off for a period of time, Perhaps overnight or longer. When the battery back up runs out any stored fax will be deleted. If you have succeeded the first page should a report telling you this fact.

If this fails you can always wind your carbon paper backwards so its not wasting on the unprinted stuff but the stuff that has already been printed on.
