Re: Cancelling Incoming Faxes in Memory

See manual (can be download from homepage If you are a victim of spam faxes you better buy a new mfc with a pc-fax-incoming-transmission function (e.g. mfc 440cn etc.) This will give you the opportunity to have a look at the faxes on the screen first and then to decide which one should be printed.

Need to print a fax in memory, machine was turned off and unplugged

It may be too late to print the faxes if your printer was unplugged. But you can try:

reprint the faxes in memory

Your HP OfficeJet can store a limited number of fax pages in its memory, with

the number of pages depending on the model you purchased. When your

HP OfficeJet runs out of memory to store faxes, it will not receive any more fax

calls until the stored faxes are printed.

Reprint Faxes in Memory enables you to reprint a fax stored in memory. For

example, if your print cartridge runs out of ink or paper becomes jammed when

printing a fax. This option prints all faxes in memory; press Cancel to stop

printing faxes you do not need.

1 Press Menu.

2 Press 2, then press 3.

This selects the Fax Functions menu, then selects the Reprint Faxes in
option. The faxes are printed from memory.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Hi there, someone has sent us hundreds of faxes that have crashed our fax machine. Is there a way to clear the "receiving" que and block incoming faxes from that sender. We cannot send or...

Hello Ihall,
Wow, That sux , and I mean it.Fax "spam" is difficult to deal with, and has been an increasing problem.Typically tho, its just an AMWAY fax or a free trip to Panama, discount tanning bed etc... . This is a fax bomb and someone is actually breaking federal law BIG TIME. They have (for whatever reason) dedicated significant resources on their end to do this. There are major hurdles and differences between NETWORK traffic, where you can select the IP addresses that you wish to allow or exclude, and phone traffic.It's just like if someone decided to hit redial aimed at your personal phone.Fax traffic cannot really be tracked at the end user level other that running an activity report, establishing that a specific number is harassing you and calling the phone company or whomever provides your phone service.Then you have to file a complaint thru this provider who will contact the FCC.The copier/ fax only knows to accept the incoming call. Lets look at it this way.If it was your home phone you could pay for services that could block a certain phone number perhaps but I bet your fax line does not have caller ID, call block, etc.If I were you I would disconnect the phone line from the copier briefly. Then locate the system monitor block at the bottom of your display and press it. Locate the fax tab at the top and press it.Select print list and it will tell you all the activity both incoming and outgoing, with phone numbers ,times etc. Determine the number that is wearing you out and call your phone provider.They won't think this is funny especially as you will have a report that lists all the activity. Again this is a federal crime and they will actually send Marshall's to the location, rip out their communication **** and possibly arrest them on the spot.I hope I have made sense here as I am livid that someone would do this. Now since you have already indicated that you know how to delete these faxes, and it has taken you hours, You should ACTUALLY be able to highlight as many "**** faxes" as you wish as you go down the screen, and just check them off and at the end say "delete". I guess my bottom line is, No the device does not have the capability on its own to differentiate phone numbers. You need to get law enforcement involved. And you should be able to get rid of those faxes in mass. This is truly jeopardizing your device and your business as it is tieing up memory and processing capabilities and can bring the device to a screeching halt. I hope I have helped you, I am sure that the fundamentals I have explained are accurate. I wish you the best. If I helped you, please let "FIXYA" know. Good luck. I hope they cook the turd, I have been thru similar ****. Spinal

How to fax forward?

You can set your product to forward incoming faxes to another fax number. When the fax arrives at
your product, it is stored in memory. Then your product dials the fax number you have specified
and sends the fax. If it cannot forward a fax because of an error (for example, the number is busy)
and repeated attempts to redial are unsuccessful, your product will print the fax.
If the product runs out of memory while receiving a fax, it will terminate the incoming fax and only
forward the pages and partial pages already stored in memory.
When using this feature, the product must be the one receiving faxes (not the computer) and the
answer mode must be set to Automatic (see Changing how the product answers incoming faxes).
To use fax forwarding
Press menu/enter.
2 Use the < or > button to select Fax Setup and press menu/enter.
3 Use the < or > button to select Fax Recv. Setup and press menu/enter.
4 Use the < or > button to select Forward Fax and press menu/enter.
5 Press > to select On or Off and press menu/enter.
6 If you choose to turn fax forwarding on, use the alphanumeric buttons to enter the fax number
where you want the fax to go, and press menu/enter to save your selection.

Out of Memory message
If the memory becomes full while you are making copies, the LCD
message will guide you through the next step.
