Question about Brother IntelliFax-2820 Laser Fax

1 Answer

I want to retrieve just the last 2 or 3 faxes from memory storage. Is there a way to select individual faxes? (my previous brother fax had this option) The directions on the 2820 seem to indicate an all or nothing proposition. Also, the faxes are not stored with the most recent one on top where you can start the all print dump and then pull the paper tray out to stop printing the whole queue.

    I have the manual (I used the word "directions" and apparently that did not make the connection). Section 4.5 addresses retrieving from memory. There are no instructions on how to retrieve specific faxes. You cannot enter a fax number. If there was just a way to have the queue set up to print from the newest to the oldest, that would be helpful.

Printing a Fax in Memory If you have Fax Storage ON for remote retrieval, you can still print a fax in the memory when you are at your machine: 1 Press Menu/Set, 8, 4. 2 Press Fax Start. 3 Press Stop/Exit. (See Turning On Fax Storage, page R-2.) Polling For details about the Polling feature, call our Brother fax-back system 1-800-521-2846 (in USA), 1-800-681-9838 (in Canada) and request at the Index. (See Features That Are Not in the Manual, page 6-6 for details.) Polling is the process of retrieving faxes from another fax machine. You can use your fax machine to "poll" other machines, or you can have someone poll your machine. All parties involved in polling need to set up their fax machines to accommodate polling. When someone polls your machine to receive a fax, they pay for the call; if you poll someone's fax machine to receive a fax, you pay for the call. (See Canceling a Scheduled Job, page 6-5.) Some fax machines do not respond to the Polling feature.

Our Brother MFC 9440CN laser printer memory, keeps saying out of memory. How do I clear the fax memory?


When Fax Storage is set to On, copies of all received faxes are stored in the memory, thus using up a portion of the memory available for other functions.

The Fax Storage feature is utilized for Fax Forwarding, Fax Paging and Remote Retrieval. If you do not need these features, verify that Fax Storage is set to Off by doing the following:
  1. Press the Menu key on the control panel.
  2. Press the Up or Down Arrow key until Fax appears on the LCD. Then, press OK.
  3. Press the Up or Down Arrow key until Remote Fax Opt or Advanced Fax Operation appears and press OK.
  4. Press the Up or Down Arrow key until Fwd/Page/Store or Forward/Store appears and press OK.
  5. Press the Up or Down Arrow key until Off appears and press OK.
  6. If you have faxes stored in the memory, you will receive a message that reads Erase All Fax? 1. Yes 2. No.

    If you want to erase all the faxes in the memory without printing them out, press 1 (Yes) and then press Stop/Exit.

Fax connection


To send a fax, you will have to configure the settings. here are the steps you can follow;

Remote Fax Options;
You can only use one remote fax option at a time:
Fax Forwarding—OR—Paging—OR—Fax Storage—OR—PC FAX Receive—OR—Off.
You can change your selection at any time (Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1).

Setting up Fax Forwarding

When you select Fax Forward, your MFC stores the received fax in the memory. The MFC will then dial the fax number you’ve programmed and forwards the fax message.
  1. Press "Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1".
  2. Press ▲ or ▼ to select "Fax Forward". Press "Menu/Set". The LCD will ask you to enter the fax number to which faxes will be forwarded.
  3. Enter the forwarding number (up to 20 digits). Press "Menu/Set".
  4. Press ▲ or ▼ to select "Backup Print:On or Backup Print:Off". Press "Menu/Set".
If you select "Backup Print:On", the MFC will also print the fax at your MFC so you will have a copy if there is a power failure before it is forwarded.
5. Press "Stop/Exit".

Programming your pager number When Paging is selected, your MFC dials the pager number you’ve
programmed, and then dials your Personal Identification Number (PIN). This activates your pager so you will know that you have a fax
message in the memory.
1. Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1.
2. Press ▲ or ▼ to select Paging.
3 . Enter your pager phone number
followed by # # (up to 20 digits). Press Menu/Set.
Do not include the area code if it is the same as that of your MFC. For example, press 1 8 0 0 5 5 5 1 2 3 4 # #.
4. If your pager needs a PIN, enter the PIN, press #, press Redial/Pause, enter your fax number followed by # #. Press Menu/Set. (For example, press 1 2 3 4 5 # Redial/Pause 1 8 0 0 5 5 5
1 2 1 2 # #) —OR— If you do not need a PIN, press Redial/Pause, enter your fax number followed by # #. Press Menu/Set. (For example, press Redial/Pause 1 8 0 0 5 5 5 1 2 1 2 # #)
5. Press Stop/Exit.
■ You cannot change a Paging number or PIN remotely.
■ If you have set Paging, a backup copy of the received fax will
automatically be printed at the MFC.

Setting Fax Storage
If you select Fax Storage, your MFC stores the received fax in the
memory. You will be able to retrieve fax messages from another
location using the Remote Retrieval commands.
1 Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1.
2 Press ▲ or ▼ to select
Fax Storage.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.
Setting PC Fax Receive
If you select PC Fax Receive, your MFC will temporarily store your
received fax messages in its memory, and then automatically send
the faxes to the PC. You can then use your PC to view and store
these faxes.
1 Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 1.
2 Press ▲ or ▼ to select
PC Fax Receive.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press ▲ or ▼ to select
Backup Print:On or
Backup Print:Off.
Press Menu/Set.
4 Press Stop/Exit.
If you have turned on Fax Storage, a backup copy will
automatically be printed at the MFC.
  • Before you can set up PC Fax Receive you must install the
MFL-Pro Suite software on your PC, make sure your PC is connected and turned on. (For details, see Using Brother PC-FAX software on page 5-1 in Software User’s Guide on
the CD-ROM.)
  • If you select Backup Print:On, the MFC will also print the fax at your MFC so you will have a copy if there is a power failure before it is sent to the PC.
■ If you get an error message and the MFC cannot print the faxes in memory, you can use this setting to transfer your faxes to your PC.
Turning off Remote Fax Options If you set the Remote Fax Options to Off and there are faxes in your MFC’s memory, the LCD will give you two options.
  • If you press 1, all unprinted faxes will be printed and erased
before the setting turns off. If a backup copy has already been
printed it will not be printed again.
  • If you press 2, the memory will not be erased and the setting will be unchanged.
Setting your Remote Access Code

The remote access code lets you access the Remote Retrieval features when you are away from your MFC. Before you use the remote access and retrieval features, you have to set up your own code. The default code is inactive code (--- ).
  1. Press Menu/Set, 2, 5, 2.
  2. Enter a three-digit code using numbers 0-9 or . Press Menu/Set. (The preset ‘ ’ cannot be changed.)
  3. Press Stop/Exit. Do not use the same code which is set in your Fax Receive Code ( 51) or Telephone Answer Code (#51). You can change your code at any time by entering a new one.
  4. If you want to make your code inactive, press Stop/Exit in Step 2 to restore the inactive setting (--- *).

Memory full


1. Fax Storage may be set to On. When Fax Storage is set to On, a copy of all received faxes are stored in the memory, thus using up a % of the memory available for other functions. The Fax Storage feature is utilized for Fax Forwarding, Fax Paging and Remote Retrieval. If you do not need these features, Fax Storage should be set to Off. Verify Fax Storage is set to Off by doing the following:

a. Press FUNCTION, 8 (Remote Fax Opt), then 2 (Fax Storage).

b. Check the setting. The display will read On or Off.

c. If the setting is On, press the left or right navigation key (arrows) until the display reads Off.

d. Press SET and then STOP/EXIT.

e. If you have faxes stored in the memory, you will receive a message that reads Erase all fax 1. Yes 2. No. This means you have faxes saved in the memory. If you do not want to reprint the saved faxes, press 1 (Yes) and then STOP/EXIT. After pressing 1 (Yes), all fax data is erased and Fax Storage is turned off.

Hope this helps!
