The reprint automatically stores as you type. I dont believe it can be turned off, however if you use the SAPI feature it clears and starts over. SAPI Semi Automatic Paper Insertion. When inserting paper pull the rt. upper bail arm all the way forward it will indert paper to preset position and clear reprint memory.

How to erase memory in Brother 8690 MFC - it keeps printing unwanted faxes which are stored in the memory! It is junk mail and 20 pages long and I want to cancel it. When I press "Stop" and pull the power...

Try to press and hold Job Cancel button until a message Job Cancel (All) appears. Press OK to confirm.
If not working, the next is what I found in user manual:
Remove paper from the printer to stop it printing. Turn it on, if not.
Set Remote Access Code, if not already, pressing Menu, 2, 5, 2. Enter three digits - 1, 2, 3 - for example and press OK.
Dial your fax number from a telephone or another fax machine using touch tone. When your machine answers, immediately enter your Remote Access Code (these 3 digits followed by *). If you hear one long beep, machine is saying that you still have faxes in memory. Then you hear two short beeps, that mean the machine waits your command. Use the dial pad to press 9 6 3.
If you hear one long beep, fax messages have been erased from the memory.

When it starts up it goes thru the steps then the error light comes on and it will not print. I put in a new ink cartridge and it did not help

The 8 beep error you are getting is a waste ink tank full error. The BJC 85 has a waste ink " tank " that is actually a series of absorbent cotton pads in the bottom of the printer. When these pads fill with ink, the printer is designed to produce that error and stop printing until the pads are replaced.

I can give you a work around to this and get you printing, but you must understand that, because the waste ink absorber is full, ink will eventually start leaking out into the bottom of your printer and either leak out of the printer, or end up shorting out the main circuit board , which is also in the bottom.

Here is the work around that will reset the printer and get you printing again:

1. Shut off the printer and unplug it from the power supply.

2. While holding down BOTH the POWER and RESUME buttons, plug the power supply back in. KEEP HOLDING DOWN the buttons until after the printer does it's initial actuation and then goes quiet again, then let go of the buttons. .

3. With the fingers of one hand Hold down the RESUME and CARTRIDGE buttons and with the other hand hold down the POWER button. Listen for 2 BEEPS. they will not be loud, and one will be longer than the other. When you hear the 2 beeps, let go of all the buttons.

4. Now press the CARTRIDGE button 15 times. You will hear a beep each time it' pressed. Make sure you count the beeps correctly.

5. After you have pressed the cartridge button 15 times, then press the RESUME button. The printer will beep and shut off.

6. Press the POWER button and the printer will power on and be ready to print. At this point, the printer will have been reset to indicate the waste ink is 50% full.

If you make a mistake, you can unplug the prnter and start over from step 1 at any time.

REMEMBER: Your waste ink pads are still FULL. You need to either replace the pads, or replace the printer before to much time goes by. If you see any ink leaking out the bottom of the printer, definitely stop using it.
