How to Erase Faxes in Memory

I get too many junk faxes, so I set my Brother MFC 1850 MC's fax storage to ON, with the intention of later erasing the faxes stored in memory without having to print them. However, upon entering the command to ERASE, the machine will print all stored faxes before erasing them, which defeats the purpose.
Any way to overide this? thanx.

Our Brother MFC 9440CN laser printer memory, keeps saying out of memory. How do I clear the fax memory?


When Fax Storage is set to On, copies of all received faxes are stored in the memory, thus using up a portion of the memory available for other functions.

The Fax Storage feature is utilized for Fax Forwarding, Fax Paging and Remote Retrieval. If you do not need these features, verify that Fax Storage is set to Off by doing the following:
  1. Press the Menu key on the control panel.
  2. Press the Up or Down Arrow key until Fax appears on the LCD. Then, press OK.
  3. Press the Up or Down Arrow key until Remote Fax Opt or Advanced Fax Operation appears and press OK.
  4. Press the Up or Down Arrow key until Fwd/Page/Store or Forward/Store appears and press OK.
  5. Press the Up or Down Arrow key until Off appears and press OK.
  6. If you have faxes stored in the memory, you will receive a message that reads Erase All Fax? 1. Yes 2. No.

    If you want to erase all the faxes in the memory without printing them out, press 1 (Yes) and then press Stop/Exit.

Here is the user's guide.
Go to page 65 (page 81 on the reader bar on the bottom) and turn off Advanced Fax Operations > It will ask you if you want to print the faxes or erase them. Also, see page 80 ( page 96 in the reader) first. It explains what to do.
