Check your owners manual. your machine may be out of memory. To free up extra memory, you can turn off
fax storage (see Turning off Remote Fax Options on page 64), print fax messages
in memory (see Printing a fax from the memory on page 46) or cancel a delayed
fax or polling job (see Checking and canceling waiting jobs on page 38)
Try this, it may be a large print job held in memory.
Press to clear the message, cancel the current print job, and conduct the next print job, if any.
· Press Cancel to cancel the print job.· Press Menu to open Stored Print and delete the holding job. · To avoid this error in the future, do the following:· Delete unnecessary fonts, macros, and other data in printer memory. · Install additional printer 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.
All three replies are incredibly stupid, but especially Frank's. The issue is simply that you're trying to print something that has too much complexity in it for the printer's pre-installed memory to store the final rendering of before printing. The way a laser printer works, unlike an ink jet, it has to take the entire page to be printed and render the final output in memory before the page can be fed through since it doesn't go line by line. If you're trying to print something that has a very complex page in it, such as a full 8x10 photo, the base amount of memory may not be enough. Dell sells a 256MB add-on memory chip you can put in the printer to get around this. Unfortunately the only other way around the issue would be to reduce the complexity of the page; perhaps try printing the PDF scaled down to 70% so the printed output is a lot smaller but also takes up less of the page, meaning the printer may be more likely to be able to fit the page into the existing memory.
If the memory becomes full while the document is being scanned, MEMORY IS FULL will appear in the display. This may occur during fax reception if too much data is received before the pages can be printed out.
Press these keys: (function) 6 # #
The display will show: RECEPTION RATIO
Press 1 to turn automatic reduction on.
Select the reception ratio to be used in the event that the memory becomes full (automatic reduction is not possible when the memory is full). Press 1 for 93% or 2 for 100%.
Press the STOP key.
If you are attempting to transmit from memory:
Press the START/MEMORY key 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 the STOP key if you want to cancel the entire transmission.
Poor Line Connection indicates an issue with your telephone line (Page 136). If you are sharing the fax line with any splitters or computers, try connecting the MFC-490CW directly to the phone jack and send a fax. If you are still getting a Poor Line Connection error message, call the telephone company and have a repair technician check your telephone line.
Out of Memory error message means the machine's memory is full (Page 138).
Try pressing Stop/Exit and wait until all current operations finish and try again.
Try clearing the data in memory. To gain extra memory space. turn off Memory Receive (See Page 48).
Try printing the faxes that are in memory (See Page 49).
System Busy error message wasn't in the manual, but I suspect it means there's a current operation in progress and the machine needs time to finish before moving on to another job. Just wait for the current job to finish, then try again.
