It could be a noisy phone line. I ran across the same problem, and here is what they said on justanswer.com:

Here's a site that talks about the same problem with Vonage:

The electrical outlets aren't the problem, the phone line is probably slightly noisy. You can usually just listen to a dial tone and hear it, but sometimes the phone company has to use their equipment.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

    thanks for replying to my problem. i tried to use the scanner. i tried to switch outlets without anything else connected to it. i tried to also use the filter alone with it. the fax makes only one load beep and then cuts off. the fax machine would normally start to process after the second beep but it cant get to that point. the beep dies out.

Im trying to send a fax but it saids out of memory and poor line condition


This message show when temporary memory full fill because of too much pending command or execute command which hold printer temporary memory. So you need to clear or delete pending command from its memory then restart your computer. Thanks a lot

Can't send fax. Getting transmission verification report stating NG: poor line condition/ out of memory. HELP!!


There are two possible reasons why your printer display the error message.

1. Poor Line Condition
- electrical interference on the line -Make sure electrical or electronic appliances do not interfere with the printer's phone line
- poor line connection - If you have a phone try connecting it directly to line outlet. Listen to the dial tone, if you hear noisy and static, then you will need to call your local telephone company cause there is a problem in your phone line. If dial tone is clear and stable then try checking the telephone line cord that you use to connect your printer from the line outlet, replace if broken.
- alarm system or another device on same line, these interferes with transmission / reception of the fax machine. Try connecting the printer all alone and then try sending a fax.

2. Memory Full
- There is no space to store incoming fax messages. Delete all stored fax messages.

Poor line condition / out of memory when attempting to send fax


That is a problem with your phone line. Get a line filter from Radio shack and install it between your wall socket and the fax. This should solve teh issue.

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.

Error message on my Brother MFC-420CN


press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up button. Machine will switch to maintaenance mode. You may have to press start bk-copy. The machine will display an error code.

Error code starting with 4 is always a defective print head which needs replacing (except error 46: new waist ink tank needed).

In case it is another error code plz post here again.
