Turn off memory reception in rx mode, in the menu look around for tx/rx settings, in rx settings 1 will be rx memory, make sure its off. Otherwise you have had a jam and the machine has not cleared it. Unplug, wait 2 mins and plug in. You may lose the stored faxes.

Press Menu, 2, 5, 2. The screen prompts you to choose a fax setting. Press <-- or --> to select OFF then press SET. If there are faxes in memory when you turn Fax Storage to OFF, the LCD prompts you to erase faxes in memory. If you press 1, all fax data is erased and Fax Storage is turned OFF.

You may want to enable Real Time TX so you can send fax without using memory. (Under FAX-SETUP SEND-REAL TIME TX)

You may also disable Fax Storage if you don't want to store incoming faxes in memory for remote retrieval (Under FAX- REMOTE FAX OPT-FAX STORAGE)

For effective use of the memory, you may also clear the caller IDs stored in the memory. Press MENU, 2, 0, 2 Press the arrow keys to display # then press CLEAR.

Hope this helps!

Canon i-sensys fax-L100

The machine keeps in memory only reports of faxes sent or received until the page is full.When the report page is full, the earliest fax is removed to make way for the most recent. Therefore if you sent enough faxes after 4 Apr 08 to fill a page, there will be no record.

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!

Received in Memory

check the paper sensor at the bottom of where the paper comes out! this has a tendency to pop out of its little holder. Use a flashlight to see it! the sensor is blocking the beam.
