Re: fax continually printing the same page

This drove me mad for a few hours too. Here is what finally worked:
MENU then 45 for "Service Code" (followed by OK). (This is on page 36 of the instruction manual, though not at all clear). I then typed 7140 & OK (which DIDNT work), followed by 7117 & OK (which DID work). The symbol showing I had stored faxes waiting in the machine, then finally disappeared !!! and the nuisance repeating fax, printed no more !

Re: fax continually printing the same page

My suggestion is to put it on pause and go in the menu to cancel.
sounds like you were making a copy on the fax and put in more than one.

Brother FAX-8070P memory shows full and does not send all pages at one time?

This message means the memory capacity of the unit has been exceeded. The amount of memory used depends on the amount or type of data on the documents being faxed or copied.
  1. If you get an "Out of Memory" message while scanning the first page of a fax, press Stop/Exit to cancel scanning.
  2. If you get an "Out of Memory" message while scanning a subsequent page, you can either press Fax Start to transmit the pages that were scanned so far or press Stop/Exit to cancel the operation.

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, verify Fax Storage is set to Off by doing the following:
  1. Press the Menu/Set key.
  2. Press the arrow key until FAX appears on the LCD. Then, press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the arrow key until REMOTE FAX OPT appears and then press Menu/Set.
  4. Pressthe arrow key until FAX STORAGE and then press Menu/Set.
  5. Check the setting. The display will read ON or OFF. If the setting is ON, press the arrow key until the display reads OFF.
  6. Press Menu/Set.
  7. 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.
    If you would like to reprint the saved faxes, press 2 (No), press Stop/Exit and continue to the following steps for instructions on how to print stored faxes.
If you do need the features that require Fax Storage to be On, the stored faxes will need to be erased or printed to remove them from the memory and to allow additional memory to be available. Follow these steps to print the stored faxes:
  1. Press the Menu/Set key.
  2. Press the arrow key until FAX appears on the LCD and press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the arrow key until REMOTE FAX OPT appears and then press Menu/Set.
  4. Press the arrow key until PRINT FAX or PRINT DOCUMENT appears and press Menu/Set.
  5. Press Fax Start.
  6. After printing is finished, press Stop/Exit.

Jam paper inside

believe it or not, a bad/faulty drum unit can cause this. or possibly the feed rollers just needing cleaned. it really helps on jam problems when you can print just 1 page and let us know exactly where that paper stops at.
good luck,

Blank page prints in between a fax received

if its coming from a fax server this cannot be stopped. You should upgrade to a newer better machine that is up to industry standard. Fax servers are basically faxing you from a computer. This is a different process than faxing from an actual fax machine and the page size can be conflicted. Only high end newer machines can compensate for this.

Incorrect Paper Size Canon super G3 fax

Sometimes turning it off and on again fixes it. However, we started having a problem where it would print out one page after you powered it back on again and then give the "incorrect paper size" message. I've found that by either holding down the green button or repeatedly pressing it while it powers back on (and held until the first page prints) fixes the problem.

Can't stop the transmision report - continues to print page after page

Make sure the transmitter knows how to send a FAX, i personally wasted a lot of time and paper because the sender doesn't know that the FAX machine had an automatic document feeder and that all pages has to be put in position before sending, and not page by page while sending.
Also see in the FAX manual if it can avoid printing the transmission report. Most Panasonic Faxes can do that.

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.
