FAQs & Troubleshooting
The Fax Reserved message will appear on the Brother machine's LCD when you're trying to send a fax while the machine's memory is full. The amount of memory used depends on the amount or type of data on the documents being faxed.
Memory is based on industry standard 5% coverage of letter size test document. If the document being scanned is more than 5% overage, it will use more memory. Documents with graphics and/or color will also use more memory.
If the Fax Reserved message appears on the Brother machine's LCD when you try to send a fax, follow these steps:
