Hi i have a brother lc67bk fax printer it won't fax as memory full how do i clear

LC67BK is the Part No. for the Black Cartridge so I presume your Printer Model No. is MFC-420CN as detailed in the heading.

PDF Manual for this model is at the link below which explains about faxing multiple sheets using internal memory.

Can't fax multible pages

Your fax machine reads multiple pages into memory before sending the job, this is the pool memory. Two things can cause this error.

  1. Corrupted memory, which keeps the job from transmitting because the data stored is scrambled and lost prior to transmission.
  2. Line static, which makes the connection so unstable and slow that the fax can't get enough pages out of the queue fast enough to make room for the next pages entering the buffer.
If you checked the line and it tested good (not just listening for a dial tone), then it is probably a memory issue.

I can't send or receive faxes. I get a transmission verification report back that says poor line condition/out of memory. How do I clear the memory?

Noise - That's a problem for some of these. Try Brother for a firmware update first, a long shot... Try a DSL Filter even if you DON'T have DSL - Radio Shack, maybe wallmart, possibly your DSL carrier. If you have DSL, that's an almost gaurenteed problem with these! Other than that, check the connections at the back of the jack and at the demarcation point (box) outside your house. If you hear hum on your phones when no one's talking, you have other problems; solutions too numerous to list.
Memory - You may have some faxes stored because "print when recieved" is turned off. Look in the manual for how to print out stored faxes, some models will store faxes automatically when the ink or paper are out. DO NOT USE GENERIC OR REFILLED INK IN THESE!!! use only original Brother inks!!! Cheap on eBay sometimes, especially as a set. Make sure it says OEM not "made for/to fit" or "replaces". Brothers are very prone to clogging from from non-Brother inks.

I have lost my manual

Of course you can send a fax, however you won't get a report on completion because of no ink.

Problem with my fax Machine MFC 420CN

You can cancel a fax job that is stored and waiting in the memory.
1 For MFC-210C,
press Menu/Set, 2, 5.
For MFC-420CN,
press Menu/Set, 2, 6.
Any jobs that are waiting will appear on the LCD.
2 If you have more than one job waiting, press ▲ or ▼ to select the
job you want to cancel.
Press Menu/Set.
If you only have one job waiting, go to Step 3.
3 Press 1 to cancel.
To cancel another job go to Step 2.
Press 2 to exit without canceling.
4 Press Stop/Exit.

That should do it for clearing faxes you dont need you can also print off all the faxes in the memory and I believe that clears it.
