ECM error message


Noise in the phone line, or low signal strength during fax transmission can result in fax failures. Noise or poor signal strength can cause a partial or complete loss of fax information during transmission. When Error Correction Mode (ECM) is on, the receiving fax machine checks the fax information for errors during reception. If the receiving fax machine detects an error, the receiving fax requests that the sending fax resend the information. Resending all or part of the information can make transmission times longer, but helps improve the quality of the received fax.
If the phone line quality or signal strength is extremely poor, sending a fax can fail. Turning off ECM can improve the ability of the product to send a fax successfully when the phone line quality is poor. However, the image quality of the received fax might be poor.
If ECM must be off to send faxes successfully, have the telephone service provider check the phone line quality. For an HP Fax, turning off ECM from the control panel does not necessarily mean that fax transmission will not use ECM. Fax products use ECM as follows.
  • All faxes sent in color use ECM.
  • All faxes sent at the highest transmission speed use ECM.
  • The ECM setting affects only sent faxes, not received faxes.
Enabling or disabling Error correction mode (ECM)

  2. Use the arrow buttons (c01073166.jpg ) to select Basic Fax , and then press the OK button (c01335940.jpg ).
  3. Use the arrow buttons (c01073166.jpg ) to select ECM Mode , and then press the OK button (c01335940.jpg ).
  4. Use the arrow buttons (c01073166.jpg ) to select On or Off , and then press the OK button (c01335940.jpg ) to confirm the setting.
  5. Press the Back button (c01496476.gif ) twice to return to the main screen.

HP All-In-One can send but cannot receive fax or can receive but cannot send


One of the most common problems with HP All-in-One Printers is that they can send out fax but cannot receive or they can receive fax but cannot send. Now, what more could possibly be the problem if you are sure that your connection cables are correct and properly setup? Well, most people don't know that this is more often than not, caused by the ECM feature of the fax.

ECM or Error Correction Mode is used by fax machines during transmission. This feature is used to eliminate transmission problems especially when you have a "dirty" or noisy telephone line or a very poor signal can result to fax failures. ECM mode, when is turned ON is supposed to check for errors and glitches and is supposed to make the reception or transmission of faxes come out successfully.

However, for some reasons, the ECM mode is not supposed to be performing well with its feature. Especially if the user has a problem with the telephone line, the more that they cannot receive or transmit a fax. It is then recommended that your HP All-In-One printer's ECM fax settings be turned OFF. To do this, follow the steps below:

1. On your printers front control panel, press the button with the wrench symbol; this is the Setup button.
2. Press the right > or left < arrow until you see Advanced Fax Setup then press OK.
3. Press the right > or left < arrow until you see Error Correction Mode; again press OK.
4. Press the right > or left < arrow until to select Error Correction Mode OFF. Press OK to confirm.

That's it! You may now try to send out a fax or ask a friend to send you one.

On my activity report, under comment is states TX ECM I know the TX is transaction (I think?) what does ECM stand for


ECM (Error Correction Mode)
The Error Correction Mode (ECM) is a way for the fax machine to check the integrity of a fax transmission while it is in progress. ECM transmissions are possible only between machines that both have the ECM feature. If they do, you may send and receive fax messages that are continuously checked for their
integrity.
Sufficient memory must be available in your FAX/MFC for this feature to work.ECM (Error Correction Mode) Detects errors during fax transmission and resends the page(s) that had an error.
If you have Call Waiting, RingMaster, Voice Mail, an answering machine, alarm system or any other
custom feature on a single phone line with your fax machine, it may create a problem sending or
receiving fax data.
For Example:
Your Brother machine handles the Caller ID and Call Waiting/Caller ID subscriber services.
However, if you subscribe to only Call Waiting or some other custom service and its signal comes
through the line while your machine is sending or receiving a fax, the signal can temporarily interrupt
or disrupt the fax data. Brother's ECM feature should help overcome this problem. This condition
is related to the telephone system industry and is common to all devices that send and receive
information on a single, shared line with custom features. If avoiding a slight interruption is crucial
to your business, a separate line with no custom features is recommended.

I'm getting an error mesage: ECM error on my Sharp AR-M207 fax machine. How can I fix it?


ECM (Error Correction Mode) is a feature common in most fax machines today. It helps to minimize errors while transmitting faxes over noisy phone lines.

1) Be sure you have the latest version of the drivers installed
2) Turn the fax off, then unplug for 10 minutes, turn on and try again. This should clear up anything in the printer/fax memory
3) Check if your phone line is unsually noisy when you tried to send the fax(es) that gave you the error message. If this is the case, a sucessful fax transmission will be almost impossible. You may have a faulty phone line or an improper installation. Either of these two should be fixed by your phone company. Also, most phoen companies can test your phone line (for fre) remotely to check for abnormally high noise levels.

Please, report back if you need further assistance.

I cant find out how to turn off error correction mode


Turning off ECM / lowering baud rate, neither will matter. Fax machines are ANALOG devices. MagicJack, Vonage, DSL are DIGITAL phone lines.

Your fax machine will not wot work reliably.
