Print fax journal from previous date on Brother MFC-3820CN

I cannot print a fax transmission report for the date of 10/31/2007, even though it was the last fax I sent. The manual has a way to set the reports up to print specific periods, but I had that turned off. There is no documented method to print a report today (12/5/07) for a fax I sent 10/31/07. Any ideas? Thanks! Paul

Brother IntelliFax-2820 Plain Paper Laser Fax does not automatically print a transmission report each time we send a fax. Is there a way to automatically have that happen. We can't find it.

You need to set up the Transmission Verification Report and Journal Period in the menu table.
Press Menu/Set, 2, 4, 1.
Press Menu/Set, 2, 4, 2.
You can use the Transmission Report as
proof that you sent a fax. This report lists the
time and date of transmission and whether
the transmission was successful (OK). If you
select On or On+Image, the report will print
for every fax you send.
If you send a lot of faxes to the same place,
you may need more than the job numbers to
know which faxes you must send again.
Selecting On+Image or Off+Image will print
a section of the fax's first page on the report
to help you remember.
When the Verification Report is turned Off or
Off+Image, the Report will only print if there
is a transmission error, with ERROR in the
RESULT column.
1 Press Menu/Set, 2, 4, 1.
2 Press ? or ? to select On, On+Image,
Off or Off+Image.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.

How can I print a history report on my Brother MFC-7220 Plain Paper Laser Fax?

The report you want is called "Fax Journal, and it's number is 4.
Press "Reports" button (in the upper-right corner of the panel), then either go down (using up/down arrow keys) to "Fax Journal", or press number 4 directly, then confirm with "Menu/Set" key.

By the way, click here to download a PDF manual for your unit.

Good luck, and please leave testimonial if helped :)

Print Report for Specific Date

I haven't found a way to print a TX report for a specific date. However there is a way to set the machine to generate an activity report at a certain time each day. Press "MENU" , 2-4-2, and you should be able to select the interval for your report by pressing the "OR" key (24 HOURS in this case). Hit "MENU" again and then enter the time you wish the report to print (24 hr format). "MENU", "STOP" and that should give you a report you can use each day.
