Printing a File Received with Memory Lock

Prints files received with Memory Lock.

This is a security function designed to prevent unauthorized users from reading your documents. If Memory Lock Reception is switched on, all received documents are stored in memory and are not automatically printed. To print the documents, you have to enter the Memory Lock ID.

When your machine has received a document with Memory Lock Reception, the Confidential File () indicator blinks.

Before using this function, the following preparations are required in the Facsimile Features menu.

For details about Memory Lock Reception, see “Reception Settings”.

For details about Program Memory Lock ID, see “Initial Settings”.


  • If the main power switch is turned off for about an hour, all documents protected by Memory Lock Reception are deleted. When this happens, the Power Failure Report is printed so you can confirm which documents have been deleted. See “Turning Off the Main Power / In the Event of Power Failure”, Troubleshooting.
