Re: 200 page fax sent to me incorrectly
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.

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.
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!
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".
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.
