Printing Documents in Memory: From B640 Manual

Except when you run out of paper, the faxphone will automatically print out the contents in memory when you remedy the cause of the problem.

If running out of memory caused memory reception, adding recording paper and press {STOP} to begin printing the stored page(s).

After printing the page(s) in memory the faxphone erases the documents from memory.

SOURCE: retreive faxes from memory

This is normally a low toner situation. You need a new toner cartridge. In the meantime, do the following:

You need to use the [MENU], [< >] and [ENTER] keys to browse through the unit's menu. Find and enter the "System Setup" menu and then search for the "Ignore Toner" option. Press [ENTER] and change the setting to "ON". Press [ENTER to confirm, the, [STOP/CLEAR] to get out of the menu system. The unit should start printing all faxes in memory.

Be blessed.

I found the manuel on line and found out how to print the faxes in memory to release the memory. So next time a big fax comes thru I will try to print and release faxes from memory.

Incoming faxes stuck in memory, how do I print them. Prior to this the faxes were coming through, but half printing then jamming, so press start and that peice of paper would come out then the next go in...

This answer maybe a little late for you but for anyone else tring to print fax stored in memory:
1. Press Menu - Fax Functions will display
2. Press 2 - Print report will display
3. Press Enter - Last Transact will display
4. Press 7 - Reprint Faxes will display printed the pages
5. Press Enter
This will print all faxes in memory. Press Stop when you have printed the pages you need.
You can print fax log (Press 2 after step 3) to see what is in memory

Are there error messages on the display or do you want to print something that has been sent? If your fax machine needs toner/drum unit, then that will need to be replaced first. If you are looking for a document that was faxed to someone, you will need to call them and have same document faxed back to you....fax machines have memory for incoming faxes, but not for things that are "sent".

Are you able to print out a fax that was sent out approximately 6 months ago

No. Not from a fax machine. Some faxes have the ability to store sent faxes but this feature caused more problems with memory filling up than it solved. So, the machine usually deleted the job after a short period and it is extremely unlikely that your sent document is anywhere near your fax now. Not a stupid question though.

Incoming faxes from multiple locations jamming our machine

I believe there should be a "Clear memory", or "dump fax Memory", in the menu selection.
Press reports and scroll to machine print out. You should get a print out on the machines configuration and help menu to better assist you.
This should dump the memory so you can prepare yourself for new incoming faxex.

Unplug the power cord from the back of the machine for 30 seconds. Put your finger on the stop key first and then re plug the machine, hold the stop key until the time and date return to the LCD. Do not worry about losing any faxes the machine can be powered off up to four days without losing faxes in memory.
