Question about Brother IntelliFAX 885MC Plain Paper Thermal transfer Fax

Machine keeps printing over and over!

I received a 15 page fax and the machine keeps printing the same 15 pages over and over again. I tried the erase button and the display reads no faxes. I tried interupt and it says nothing stored. I tried unpluging and as soon as I put paper in, it continues printing the same faxes over again. I don't want to keep using up the carbon paper for a fax I have already received. Help!

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.

I HAVE A SHARP UX-A450 FAX MACHINE AND WANT TO EMPTY THE FAX MEMORY.


MEMORY IS FULL / SEE MANUAL (alternating messages)
The memory is full. You may have too many messages recorded in the answering machine. To erase messages, see below. This may occur during fax reception if too much data is received before the pages can be printed out. If faxes have been received to memory because printing is not possible (an additional message will indicate the problem), resolve the problem so that printing can continue (see Substitute Reception to Memory on page 66). If you are attempting to transmit from memory, see If the memory becomes full on page 57. If you are copying, see If MEMORY IS FULL appears on page 67.

Erasing received messages:
It is important to erase received messages after you listen to them to ensure
that the memory does not become full.
? Erasing all messages: To erase all messages, press FUNCTION, DELETE, and then START/MEMORY.
? Erasing a single message: To erase a single message, press DELETE while the message is being played.


If the memory becomes full while the document is being scanned, MEMORY
IS FULL and SEE MANUAL will alternately appear in the display.
? Press START / MEMORY if you want to transmit the pages which have been stored up to that point in memory. The remaining pages will be ejected from the feeder. After transmission, the memory will be cleared and you can transmit the remaining pages. You will also need to transmit the page which was being scanned when the memory filled up.
? Press STOP if you want to cancel the entire transmission.

My fax machine can't receive message, "fax memory full"...how to erase the fax memory?


It will depend on the model and make and you have not supplied that information.
If this information in memory was received information then the machine should print out the documents as long as there is nothing in the display saying it needs toner, paper etc, etc.
If it is not received information in memory then it can only be scanned information for copying or transmitting....again, not knowing make or model...you should be able to use your users manual and delete the pages you have stored into memory.

How can I delete the memory on a brother mfc-465cn printer fax machine? It will not receive faxes due to this


Review page 65 in your manual. Changing the "Advanced Fax Operations:"

If received faxes are left in your machine's
memory when you change the Advanced Fax
Operations, the LCD will ask you one of the
following questions:

Erase All Fax?
Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

Print All Fax?
Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

• If you press 1, faxes in the memory will
be erased or printed before the setting
changes. If a backup copy has already
been printed it will not be printed again.
• If you press 2, faxes in the memory will
not be erased or printed and the setting
will be unchanged.

Memory full


Here is the user's guide.
Go to page 65 (page 81 on the reader bar on the bottom) and turn off Advanced Fax Operations > It will ask you if you want to print the faxes or erase them. Also, see page 80 ( page 96 in the reader) first. It explains what to do.

MFC 440-CN out of memory error, fax memory is full I cn't send any more faxes, I called Brother tech support they told me that there is no way to clear the memory, that I had to leave the printer unplugged...


Try this :
To resolve this situation do the following:

1. If another operation is in progress (example: receiving a fax,
printing, etc), press STOP/EXIT, wait until it's completed and then try
again.

2. Clear the machines memory. This can be done by turning off Advanced
Fax Operations.

a. Press MENU.

b. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to choose Fax.

c. Press OK.

d. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to choose Advanced Fax Operation.

e. Press OK.

f Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW key to choose Fwd/Page/Store.

g. Press OK.

h. Press the UP OR DOWN ARROW to choose Off.

i. Press OK.

j. Press STOP/EXIT.

If received faxes are left in your machine's memory when you change the
Advanced Fax Operations and a backup copy has already been printed, the
LCD will ask:

Erase All Fax?

Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

If received faxes are left in your machine's memory when you change the
Advanced Fax Operations and a backup copy has not yet been printed, the
LCD will ask:

Print All Fax?

Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

# If you press 1, faxes in the memory will be erased or printed before
the setting changes.

# If you press 2, faxes in the memory will not be erased or printed and
the setting will be unchanged.

k. Try your operation again.

Good luck...

Receiving multiple page fax on Brother Intellifax 4100e


it may be the memory, try switching to direct printing instead of going into memory, if it prints you should change the memory.

Printing same page


try this make sure that receive reduction is switched on. You could load the paper tray up and just let it print as may have been a communication problem from RTI memory. Being Richo machine you should be able to reset the memory but this will get rid of all your stored numbers. But it will reset the machine so if you have a corrupted memory issue this will get rid of it.


Hope this helps you
Thanks J

Won't print faxes in memory


One of the received faxes sitting in memory is a different size page to that set for the fax machine. Unfortunately, Brother never recognised this as a possibility (Neither did Canon on some of their machines) You will have to do a completye machine reset (maintenance mode 91 and reset with 99)
