If this was the procedure you followed it should be stored and not printed as long as memory security is on. But, if mem security is on you can not send faxes unless you first turn that security feature off.

How do I clear the in use alarm on a canon mx340 printer?


The in use alarm appears to be related to fax reception and printing. There are some options below that you could try:-
Memory Reception If the machine receives a fax under one of the following conditions, it will not be able to print the received fax and will store it in its memory. The In Use/Memory lamp is lit and Received in memory is displayed on the LCD. When the problem is resolved as described, the fax stored in memory is printed automatically.
  • Ink has run out: Replace the FINE Cartridge.
    i_green_arrow.gifRoutine Maintenance
    i_note_e.gifNote
    • You can set the machine to forcibly print a received fax even if the ink has run out.
      However, part or all of the fax may not be printed since the ink has run out.
      Also, the contents of the fax will not be stored in memory.
      If the ink has already run out, we recommend that OFF be selected for Auto print in FAX user settings to store the received fax in memory and print the fax manually after replacing the FINE Cartridge. After you replace the FINE Cartridge and select ON for Auto print, the fax stored in memory will be printed automatically.
  • Paper has run out: Load the paper and press the OK button.
  • A different size of paper from that specified by Page size is loaded:
    Load the same size of paper as that specified by Page size, then press the OK button.
  • Page size is set to other than A4, 8.5"x11"(LTR), or Legal (or 8.5"x14"):
    Set Page size to A4, 8.5"x11"(LTR), or Legal (or 8.5"x14").
  • Media type is set to other than Plain paper:
    Set Media type to Plain paper.
  • You pressed the Stop button to cancel printing of a fax:
    Press the FAX button
Alternatively turn the printer off, open the devices and printers section of Control Panel, right click on your printer and select "see what's printing" and left click on this. A window will pop up which may or may not contain a list of documents. If it does these must be cancelled (Menu - Printer - Cancel all documents). Once all documents have gone from the list turn the printer on and try to print.
Other than the above suggestions I would need to know more about your OS and exact problem. Hope this helps.

Says receiving fax but doesn't print


Fax machines can be set to store documents, print docs or do both. If you set it to only print received faxes, it will try to print and give you some kind of error it if fails (e.g. no paper). Did you get an error? if not it either is set to store and not print, or it didnt store it and you have lost it. From the menus on the Epson, look for where items may be stored e.g. 'store' or 'mailbox' and check if there is any doc in there.

MY FAX MACHINE CAN NOT RECEIVE FAX FROM OTHER, THE DISPLAY IS FAX MEMORY FULL, HOW TO SOLVE?


This means that your fax is only storing into its internal memory and not printing all incoming faxes, therefore it has no more space for more incoming documents, you should print the documents and maybe you'll need to clear the memory, depending on fax machine, this is done automatically when the documents are printed, and of course, set the incoming faxes to print not to store, this feature is supposed to be used only when the fax has no paper to print.

Need to print a fax in memory, machine was turned off and unplugged


It may be too late to print the faxes if your printer was unplugged. But you can try:



reprint the faxes in memory

Your HP OfficeJet can store a limited number of fax pages in its memory, with

the number of pages depending on the model you purchased. When your

HP OfficeJet runs out of memory to store faxes, it will not receive any more fax

calls until the stored faxes are printed.

Reprint Faxes in Memory enables you to reprint a fax stored in memory. For

example, if your print cartridge runs out of ink or paper becomes jammed when

printing a fax. This option prints all faxes in memory; press Cancel to stop

printing faxes you do not need.

1 Press Menu.

2 Press 2, then press 3.

This selects the Fax Functions menu, then selects the Reprint Faxes in
Memory
option. The faxes are printed from memory.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

AFTER REFILLING PAPER, MACHINE DOES NOT START RECEIVING FAXES IMMEDIATELY


It sounds like you have some bad jobs stuck inside the fax's memory. First print out a memory reference report. It will show you any bad jobs stuck in the system. Delete the memory reference jobs. Then go into set up and you want to turn off the option to store failed transmisions.

The system should store jobs while it is waiting for paper. If you have a lot of stored jobs and the memory is full it will not receive any more jobs until it can print out what is stored - so it would be normal for it not to recieve new jobs until all of the old jobs are printed.

On my Canon MX310, the display says "Waiting for Report". Fax Memory is clear, but the In Use/Memory light stays on.


Try this step ... found it on Canon's website

Issue: ERROR LCD: WAITING FOR REPORT
Solution: Set [AUTO PRINT RX] to ON (MX300 / MX310)

AUTO PRINT RX When [AUTO PRINT RX] is set to [OFF], incoming received faxes will be temporarily stored to memory and transaction reports (TX, RX and Activity) remain in memory. The default setting is [ON], which means incoming received faxes and transaction reports will automatically print. The fax machine will not automatically print a received fax and will store it in memory in the following conditions.
  • Ink is low or has run out
  • The paper size and type is not set correctly
  • Paper has run out
  • The Output Tray is closed
To set AUTO PRINT to ON, please follow these steps.
  1. Press the <FAX> button to enter the Fax menu.

  2. Press the <Menu> button. [FAX SETTINGS] is displayed

  3. Press the left or right arrow button to select [RX SETTINGS] , then press <OK> two times.

  4. Press the left arrow to select [ON], then press <OK>.

    Note: When AUTO PRINT RX is set ON, a sub-menu will appear to PRINT WHEN NO INK.

  5. At sub-menu PRINT WHEN NO INK, decide if you'd like the machine to continue to print incoming received faxes if ink is low.

    CAUTION: When this option is set ON, the fax machine will not monitor the ink level of the ink cartridges. If ink is low or out, received faxes will print with streaks or blank. Furthermore, once the fax is printed, it will be deleted from memory.
    1. To print received faxes when ink is low or out, press the left or right arrow to select [ON] and then press <OK>.
    2. To store received faxes in memory when ink is low or out, press the left or right arrow to select [OFF] and then press <OK>.

  6. Press the <Stop/Reset> repeatedly to return to Fax standby mode.

How can i print the last fax i received


Most fax machines delete the fax data once they are successfully printed out, so I very much doubt this can be done, unless your machine has been set to store received documents(very doubtful). You will be able to print the journal which shows the fax traffic....no of pages, date/time/duration/number etc. but that?s about it I'm afraid.

Receiving Faxes


There is no setting to store faxes to memory by default. If the received faxes are being stored in memory, it's because the machine detects a problem that prevents it from printing them, such as no paper, or no ink. Go to this link and type "print received faxes" in the search box and click Search. You will see a number of items to review for troubleshooting your problem.
