No one seems to have a manual for this except for those who want to seel service plans. I solved the memory full issue by finding the right sequence of buttons. You press the delete file button, lift the cover of the preprogrammed buttons , locate the set button and then the asterisk. This clears the memory so there's not a hit and miss on faxing out documents.
Shut off the fax hold the orange cancel key and power up the fax and continue holding until the date nad time appears, this will wipe out the image memory but the phone numbers will be there. Theonly caution is if the power supply is old it may not come back to life, if thats the case leave for about half an hour asee it will revive

To delete faxes from memory 1. On the all-in-one control panel, press Menu. 2. Press the > button once to display Fax functions, and then press the tick 3. Use the < or > button to select Clear saved faxes, and then press the tick 4. Press to confirm the deletion.
You need to clear the fax log. Press the control panel's button (right or left) until you see 'fax log' on the display, then press OK or Enter (depending on the printer). Press the control panel's button again until you see 'clear fax log' or 'delete fax log' on the display, then press OK or Enter. You should get a confirmation message on the panel display. You can turn the printer off and then after a few seconds turn it back on. The fax log memory should be empty now.
I had the same "Full Memory" problem & called Sharp. You need to unplug the fax, then hold (press down) on both the "Start/Memory" & the "Stop" buttons at the same time. While holding them down, plug the fax back in. After it's plugged in, you may need to press the start button again. That should clear it.
You press "Menu" button and use arrow key to select "Memory Reference" --> press "Start" button --> and now you can see your documents in memory ---> You can print out or delete. If you have any problem with Canon products you can email to me.
Check your ink cartridges and fill any that may be low. I got that error because one of the cartridges (magenta) needed to be refilled. The printer was storing failure reports in its memory until they could be printed out, leaving no room to fax new documents. As soon as the ink cartridge was replaced, the reports printed and freed up the memory to send out faxes.
I found this in a forum and I suspect it will work, remember that you'll need to clear the internal memory chip by unplugging the printer:
I got the dreaded "memory full" problem with my mp530 this morning. Couldn't FAX because the mp530 thought its memory was full even though it showed no documents in memory. The Canon site lists this symptom with a solution of 'turn off the unit, wait 10 seconds, then turn it back on'. Well that didn't work, so after multiple tries I noticed a post on this board (not really related) that suggested turning off the unit, unplugging it and waiting 10 minutes -- and that did the trick.
Press FUNCTION key then 9 key. The display will ask you to ENTER FILE NO. OR ^. You want to enter ### as the file number and press SET to delete all files. (You cannot delete the file while it is being sent). The display will then show DELETE ALL FILES? 1:YES 2:NO. Press 1 to delete all files.
