I want to change the name (My caller ID)when I fax how can I do that It show up as Holy Dreams that name of our former company. I want it to show as our new company. How do I do that

I believe you wish to change the "Station ID" on your MFC-240C. This setting will print out your company name and other header info on your faxes:

1) Press the <Menu> key
2) Press <Up> or <Down> Navigate to "Initial Setup"
3) Press <OK>
4) Note: Your station ID is already set, therefore the machine will prompt you to choose: (1) change, or (2) exit without changing - choose (1) to change
5) Enter your fax number, then press <OK>
6) Enter your company name using the dial pad keys. This may take a little practice. Press the dial pad key the correct number of times to produce your desired letter. Use your (>) right navigation key to advance to the next space. If you entered a letter incorrectly and want to change it, press the left navigation key to move the cursor under the incorrect letter.
7) Press <OK> when finished
8) Press <Stop/Exit> to resume normal operation

There! You should have it. I hope this helps!

Changing the Fax Configuration

2 In Fax Console, click Configure Fax on the Tools menu to start the Fax Configuration
3. On the Transmitting Subscriber Identification (TSID) screen, type the identification information (usually your fax number and your name or business name) in the TSID box. This information will appear in the header area of the faxes you send and identifies your
fax machine to the person who receives your faxes.

How can i generate incoming call report ?

To print a report:
  1. Press the [Menu] button on the Control Panel, until Reports is displayed on the top line of the Display Screen. The Phone Book menu item will be displayed on the bottom line.


  2. Press the right or left arrow button to scroll until the report or list you want to print is displayed on the bottom line.
    • Phone Book: Phonebook list
    • Sent Report: Sent fax report
    • RCV Report: Received fax report
    • System Data: System data list
    • Scheduled Jobs: Scheduled job information
    • MSG Confirm: Message confirmation
    • Junk Fax List: Junk fax number list
  3. Press [Enter] to print the selected information.
Your machine can print reports containing useful information. The following reports are available:
  • Phonebook List: This list shows all of the numbers currently stored in the machine's memory as Speed Dial and Group Dial numbers. You can print this phonebook list using the [Phonebook] button.
  • Sent Fax Repor: This report shows information of the faxes you recently sent.
  • Received Fax Report: This report shows information of the faxes you recently received.
  • System Data List: This list shows the status of the user-selectable options. You may print this list to confirm your changes after changing any settings.
  • Scheduled Job Information: This list shows the document currently stored for Delayed faxes or Toll Save faxes. The list shows the starting time and type of operation.
  • Message Confirmation: This report shows the fax number, the number of pages, the elapsed time of the job, the communication mode, and the communication results. You can set up your machine to automatically print the message confirmation report after each fax job.
  • Junk Fax Number List: This list shows up to 10 fax numbers specified as the junk fax numbers by using the Junk Fax Setup menu. When the Junk Fax Barrier feature is turned on, incoming faxes from those numbers will be blocked. This feature recognizes the last 6 digits of the fax number set as a remote fax machine’s ID.
  • Multi-Communication Report: This report is printed automatically after sending documents from more than one location.
  • Power Failure Report: This report is printed out automatically when power is restored after a power failure, if any data loss occurs due to the power failure.

NOTE: The lists you have set to automatically print out will not print out when there is no paper loaded or a paper jam has occurred.

If you subscribe to a caller ID service through your phone provider, you can block
specific fax numbers so the device does not print faxes received from those numbers.
When an incoming fax call is received, the device compares the number to the list of
junk fax numbers to determine if the call should be blocked. If the number matches a
number in the blocked fax numbers list, the fax is not printed.
Set the junk fax mode
By default, Block Junk Fax mode is turned On. If you do not subscribe to a caller ID
service through your phone provider, or do not want to use this feature, you can turn
off this setting.
To set the junk fax mode
▲ Some models have a Block Junk Fax button. Depending on the model you have,
do one of the following:
Block Junk Fax button: Press the Junk Fax Blocker button, select the Block
Junk Fax option, and then select On or Off.
Color display menu: Press Setup, select Basic Fax Menu, select Junk Fax
Blocker Setup, select Block Junk Fax, and then select On or Off.
Add numbers to the junk fax list
There are two ways to add a number to your junk list. You can select numbers from
your caller ID history, or you can enter new numbers. The numbers in your junk list are
blocked if Block Junk Fax mode is set to On.

I have an hp v40xi. I recently changed my home number and can't remember how to replace my old phone number with the new, in order to get my fax to work.

The FAX header information can be changed using the HP software or the front panel on the printer. Instructions can be found here on the HP website.

Changing your phone number should not affect the fax operation. Are you sure that was all that was changed?

According to the user manual, which can be obtained at
if you don't have one handy, the steps to set your fax machine's number is on page 42. The steps to take are:

Setting the Station ID
You should store your name or company name and fax number so
they print on all fax pages you send.
1 Press Menu/Set, 0, 3.
2 Enter your fax number
(up to 20 digits).
Press Menu/Set.
3 Use the dial pad to enter your name (up to 20 characters).

You cannot enter a hyphen in the fax number. To enter a space
press once between numbers.
If the Station ID has already been programmed, the LCD will ask
you to press 1 to make a change or 2 to exit without changing.
