Today my old Sharp FO-5550 has decided to store to memory and not print the faxes as they arrive. I have no error messages, the toner was replaced about 3 weeks ago and there's plenty of paper. For the life of me I can't figure out how to make these faxes print that are in memory.
Check and see if your fax has a power save button next to your LCD screen. Pressing it will store everything into memory or you could do a flash memory clear however you will lose everything that is stored in memory(RX and TX only). Press FUNCTION , 9,*,8,#,7 then press start, next press your # key to scroll to flash memory. Press start. This should fix it.
