Colin Vincent :

Hi there. The memory clear is carried out as follows


  • Press the Menu option.

  • Then press either the Up or Down Arrow key to choose Fax and press OK.

  • Then press the Up or Down Arrow key to choose Setup Receive and press OK.

  • Then press the Up or Down Arrow key to choose Memory Receive and press OK.

  • Finally press the Up or Down Arrow key to choose Off and press OK.

  • If you have faxes stored in the memory, you will receive one of the following message:



    • Erase All Fax (Doc) ?

    • Print All Fax?



    If you then press 1(Yes), faxes in the memory will be erased or printed before the setting changes. If a backup copy has already been printed it will not be printed again.

    If you press 2(No), faxes in the memory will not be erased or printed and the setting will be unchanged
  • JACUSTOMER-toqkfx7z- :

    Ok. Did that. Didn't get any message. Will try to send fax again.

    JACUSTOMER-toqkfx7z- :

    Tried sending fax again. Went through ok. Thanks!

    I have an older MacBook Pro and a Brother MFC-7860 DW
    Hello John. I have an older MacBook Pro and a Brother MFC-7860 DW printer. I use it wirelessly. It works fine when hooked up by wire, but I can't get the computer to recognize the printer (or vice versa). Up until now, they worked fine together, but we moved back to a house we had lived in earlier, with both printer and computer in the same locations, and they won't work together now. They worked fine when we lived here before. I reinstalled the driver from Brother, but that didn't help. ????? Jim … read more
