Hi i have a brother lc67bk fax printer it won't fax as memory full how do i clear


LC67BK is the Part No. for the Black Cartridge so I presume your Printer Model No. is MFC-420CN as detailed in the heading.

PDF Manual for this model is at the link below which explains about faxing multiple sheets using internal memory.

I am trying to fax and it says "poor line condition/out of memory" please help on what to do


> poor line condition

Disconnect it from the telephone wall-jack.
Connect a telephone-handset to that wall-jack.
Make a call to the FAX-number that you are trying to reach.
Listen. Do you hear "noise" or "static", due to terrible telephone-wires,
either from your location to your nearest telephone-exchange,
or from the target telephone to their nearest telephone-exchange.

> out of memory

Use the control-panel on the printer to delete "old" sent/received FAX documents, to clear-out some memory.

I am trying to retrieve a fax from the memory that was sent to me a couple weeks ago, is this possible?


Hi there!
It is possible if the fax storage of your fax machine is on. To check if its in press Menu 2 5 1, the lcd should show fax storage. and to print the fax press Menu, 2 5 3 to print the stored fax.
If the lcd shows off when you press Menu 2 5 1 there is no way to print that fax.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

Would not receive or fax papers because "out of memory"


well, you can either cut down on the amount of faxes that you do at one time, or you can go to page 36 of owners manual and change your settings to fax in "real time". that way, it will not fill up your memory, however, the adf will not scan them fast and spit them out. it will be a slower process in that respect. it won't fax slower, just the scanning part will be slower. i hope i explained it clearly enough.

Can send but can't receive faxes on MFC-8460N


Fax machines are ANALOG devices and will not work reliably on DIGITAL phone lines.

Problem with my fax Machine MFC 420CN


You can cancel a fax job that is stored and waiting in the memory.
1 For MFC-210C,
press Menu/Set, 2, 5.
For MFC-420CN,
press Menu/Set, 2, 6.
Any jobs that are waiting will appear on the LCD.
2 If you have more than one job waiting, press ▲ or ▼ to select the
job you want to cancel.
Press Menu/Set.
—OR—
If you only have one job waiting, go to Step 3.
3 Press 1 to cancel.
To cancel another job go to Step 2.
—OR—
Press 2 to exit without canceling.
4 Press Stop/Exit.

That should do it for clearing faxes you dont need you can also print off all the faxes in the memory and I believe that clears it.
Enjoy,
Lee

Can not send fax


Call your telephone provider. There may be noise on the line. Ask you telephone provider to perform a line check on your line. If there is a problem they can fix it on their end. Worst case senario, they come to location as you have poor lines or old lines into your home.

If you have Vonage or Comcast Digital phone service, you will want to slow down your modem speed on the fax machine. Your manual should show you how to do it.
