Is it possible to retrieve a confirmation of a fax I sent approximately four years ago?

No, the transmission log is held for the last 50 faxes on most machines and I would imagine you have sent more than 50 faxes over the four year period. I imagine this is for some legal matter, so what you can try to do is pull your phone records from four years ago and find that number on your bill. This is equal verification that a fax was sent on the date and time you say one was sent. That is about your only option. If you do not have copies of your previous bills, contact your phone company and ask the to do a search on the number you are inquiring about and they should be able to pull your records from four years ago and provide that information to you, albeit for a fee. I hope this helps and does not come as bad news.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I mistakenly sent a fax to a landline number and it won't stop calling them. How do I cancel the fax?

If you have no other faxes in queue then simply unplug the machine and this should clear the flash memory.

If you have other faxes in queue and do not wan to disrupt them then hit the red stop/hang up/call end button. It will ask you to confirm and then print out a fax confirmation with "STOP" listed as the reason.

Confirmation report lists incorrect no of pages sent

You may have a sticking actuator arm under the feeder; or in the feeder depending on make and model.
This would allow the pages to be sent but not counted correctly.... I assume that the count on the confirmation report is always LESS than the pages actually sent, at the time you have the problem.

Need to confirm details of when and what number a fax was sent approx 15 days ago.

The only way to check old transfer info for faxes is by printing out the journal. The way to do this varies from fax to fax, but most often is either with it's own button "reports" (and then "fax journal"), or by choosing "print reports" in the regular menu. The journal is emptied during power outs, so if you have had a power failure since, you cannot get the information. Additionally, the only info you will get from this is to where/from where the fax was sent, and if it was successful. Any information on the actual fax content is unavailable.

Don't want a transmission report after each sent fax

On the machine there is a menu button.
the menu can be printed out so you can see all the areas to select.
If you scroll to through the menu, you will find a set up or incoming fax menu.
You need to set confirmation to off.
This will take some time to find the right menu, so be patient with the machine.
Good luck.

Jounal Entry Dates

Most machines will only keep a certain amount of transactions in memory. Your fax that you are looking for is probably over the amount of transmissions kept in memory. One suggestion, if the fax was a long distance number, you could check your phone for that number. You also might want to set your machine to print a confirmation report for every fax sent and staple it to your fax for further reference.
