The setting for resolution was too high. Set back to basic and fax went through--no more problems.

Need to know how to fax from mcf 210c


How to enter Fax mode
Before sending faxes, make sure (Fax) is illuminated in
green. If not, press (Fax) to enter Fax mode. The default
setting is Fax.
How to dial
You can dial in any of the following different ways.
Manual dialing
Press all of the digits of the phone or fax number.
Setup Send
3 - 2 SETUP SEND
Speed-Dialing
Press Search/Speed Dial, #, and then the two digit Speed-Dial
number. (See Storing Speed-Dial numbers on page 5-1.)
Search
You can search for names you have stored in the Speed-Dial
memories. Press Search/Speed Dial and the navigation keys to
search. (See Storing Speed-Dial numbers on page 5-1.)
* To search alphabetically, you can use the dial pad to enter the first
letter of the name you are looking for.
Fax Redial
If you are sending a fax manually and the line is busy, press
Redial/Pause, and then press Black Start or Color Start to try
again. If you want to make a second call to the last number dialed,
you can save time by pressing Redial/Pause and Black Start or
Color Start.
Redial/Pause only works if you dialed from the control panel.
If you are sending a fax automatically and the line is busy, the MFC
will automatically redial one time after five minutes.
If the LCD shows Not Registered when you enter the
Speed-Dial number, a number has not been stored for it.

Color fax transmission
Your MFC can send a color fax to machines that support this feature.
However, color faxes cannot be stored in the memory. When you
send a color fax, the MFC will send it in real time (even if Real Time
TX is set to Off).

I KEEP TRYING TO FAX AND GETTING THE MESSAGE. OUT OF MEMORY. HOW DO I CLEAR OUT THE MEMORY ON MFC-6490CW. PLEASE HELP ASAP IF POSSIBLE. THANKS SO MUCH.


Hi,

The manual for this printer can be found here:
http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/doc/manual_index.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc6490cw_all&dlid=&flang=English&type2=-1

If you get an Out of Memory message while faxing and you do not want to delete your stored faxes to clear the memory, you can send the fax in real time:

You can turn on Real Time TX.
1) Press Fax
2) Press up or down arrows to select Real Time TX.
3) Press left or right arrows to select "On"
4) Press OK.

You can now send faxes real time without having to scan the document into memory.

Hope this helps,

Chris

Memory full


This message usually shows up when you've received many faxes and haven't printed them, or when you have attempted to send faxes but they never made it and were kept in memory for a later date.
I would search in your user's manual how to clear the memory, since each manufacturer has a different way to do this, and the machine's menuing systems also differ from one manufacturer to another.
Good luck!

Can not send more than 99 pages as PC fax.


Like every fax machine, there is a limit to how many pages it can keep in memory before needing to be cleared. Yours is apparently only 99. If you want to send more than 99 pages at a time without clearing the memory, i'd look for another printer.

I am having trouble with faxing information to another fax.


I have had this problem before. Either your fax is not hooked up properly or whoever you are trying to send the fax to does not have their fax hooked up properly. If it's not one of these problems makes you have the right fax number and that you are putting the fax number in correct. Some fax require the whole number to be entered 1 including the area code.
