I scanned a pdf and filed it in ecf and now I get an "Out of Memory error" message, how do I correct this?
Check for updates to your scanner software.
Try reprinting the pdf to pdf. Once the pdf has been reprinted, contact the clerks office at (718-613-2610 for Brooklyn) or (631-712-6010 for Central Islip) and ask that the pdf be replaced.
If reprinting the pdf to pdf does not work, try rescanning the document using a different software package to create the PDF. If the pdf was originally created using a word processor, all you need to do is print to pdf.
Once the pdf has been rescanned, contact the clerks office at (718-613-2610 for Brooklyn) or (631-712-6010 for Central Islip) and ask that the pdf be replaced on the case.
