I can't erase the faxes I already send


Hi There,

While not as popular as they were before the Internet became a principal means of business communication, fax machines are still an essential item in many offices. They are particularly useful on business documents when a signature is needed. Canon makes a number of fax machines that use both ink-jet and laser technology to receive and print documents. Most fax machines store incoming faxes in memory so you can reprint them, but occasionally the memory becomes full resulting in an error message. Your Canon fax machine's memory can be cleared quickly and easily so you can start using it again.


Instructions


* Click the "Menu" button.

* Press the arrow buttons to scroll through the options on the screen. Select
"MEMORY REFERENCE" and click "Start/Copy."


* Use the arrow buttons to choose "DEL. PRINTED RX" then click "Start" again.

Press "*" to select the "Yes" option from the screen. This will delete all documents from the fax machine's memory.


* Click "Stop" to finish.

My brother mfc-490cw I can't send or recieve faxes.


According to the User's Manual for the Brother MFC-490CW:
  • 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.

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...

Sending Faxes


When the last page of your document has been sent successfully, the machine beeps and returns to Standby mode. When something goes wrong while sending your fax, an error message appears on the display. If you receive an error message, press Stop/Clear to clear the message and try to send the document again. You can set your machine to print a confirmation report automatically each time sending a fax is completed. If you get the error message write it down it should always supply an error message if the fax did not go through.
