There can't be that many faxes in memory, just let it print them all and it will reset. Unfortunately no 2 manufacturers use the same methods for removing faxes stored in memory. If you can't do it, you'll have to call a technician to enter the service mode and do a complete memory reset.

I'm not receiving certain faxes. How do I ensure they will all be sent to me?


Dear
Pl. check the memory received., If your fax setting is not done for memory setting i.e. when you receive a fax that immediately printed .Then the fax machine is right some times voice calls also generated if it was given earlier for that or used for voice call, so caller may try to communicate for voice call and got the fax tone (as the fax machine is in auto mode),he simple disconnect the line.
and fax machine may display some error message.
Thanks.

BROTHER MFC8840D IS THERE A WAY TO SHOW THAT I SENT A FAX TO A SPECIFIC PHONE NUMBER AT THE END OF MAY?


Possibly. The Fax Journal has the last 200 faxes (incoming or outgoing). Press Menu then select Fax (up and down arrows). Press Set, and use the navigation keys until Setup Reports or Report Settings appears. Then press Set and use the navigation keys to find the Act. Interval or Journal Period. Press Set again and a length of time for the Journal (anything but off). Press Set again. (If you use the 7 day count-down, you will get additional queries for day of week and time of day for the start of the count-down.) Press Stop/Exit and the Activity Report will print when 200 faxes are in memory, the memory is full or the desired time frame. (The setting of 50 faxes will print at every 50 faxes.) After printing the report, these entries will be deleted.

I hope this helps.

(if the report was already generated, you won't get the old entries. Similarly if the memory was cleared after an Out Of Memory error, you won't find this entry. If Fax Storage was on, you may be able to actual get the original Fax. Menu > Fax > Remote Fax Opt > Print Fax or Print Document. Then Start and when all stored Faxes print hit Stop/Esc.)

Deleteing an incoming fax job that has stopped printer . The incoming job has the incorrect paper size.. and i cant choose that paper size. I can not delete the job as usual, the delete button does not...


On most Bizhub Copiers if you have something stuck in memory that is tying up the machine you can turn it off and unplug it from the wall for 10-15 seconds and then turn it back on. Doing this will erase the Random Access Memory and should clear all fax and print jobs from the machine.

It says that our memory is full. How do you delete the memory?


There are only two things that fill up memory. Out-going faxes that did not send and incoming faxes that could not be printed out.
The first scenario is two fold.
#1 If the phone line has been disconnected in any way the unit will try to send a few times ( most units are set for 3 attempts before failing but this is generally an adjustable setting).
#2 Most fax machines have a setting that will delete files that failed to send automatically. Some operators choose to shut off this auto delete function and this causes unsent items to stay in memory forever.
Incoming faxes will stay in memory until they successfully print out. Some of the causes are:
A paper jam, no paper supply and toner supply or a spent drum unit. If for any reason a recieved document can't print out it remains in memory unitl the problem is solved. Some units will loose that page data if the power is shut off for 12 to 24 hours. ( this is highly dependent on the model/brand).

So break out the owners manual and read up your user settings to cure the first scenario!

Retrieval of fax from memory


No. And even if you could, it would simply list the # the fax was received from, and the # of pages. The actual fax is not retained.

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.

Need to clear the memory of Brother MFC-8220 fax


The easy way to reset the machine is to power it off for a period of time. Say overnight will allow the battery back up on the board to run out and the machine to loose its memory.
