A Canon fax machine contains a built-in memory component that stores a copy of each fax it receives and prints. The memory component is handy for retrieving faxes that didn't print correctly or you need to print an extra copy of a fax for a business associate or client. Like a computer's memory, a Canon fax machine includes a way to clear faxes from its memory.


Step 1

Press the "Menu" button on your Canon fax machine's front panel. Press the down arrow to scroll to "Memory Reference" and press the "Start/Copy" button.
