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.
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.
