You need to go to printers and choose 'add a printer'. Under add printer, choose the printer called "MS FAX." That will install microsoft fax as a printer. Next, print your document by going to File, Print... (make sure it says "PRINT..." then you should see a selection screen, choose ms fax, and there you go. That should do it.

My HP 1040 fax prints a sending confirm notice after every fax is sent. Is there a way to turn this feature off as it is a major waste of paper.


Reports you can print
You can print these reports whenever you need to. Some of these reports can be set to print automatically also.
1. Press Report/Help.
2. Choose the report you want by using left or right arrow.
3. Press Start/Enter when the desired report is displayed.
4. The selected report will be printed.

Sending Confirm
A confirmation report shows whether the transmission was successful or not,
how many pages were sent, etc.
ON: prints a confirmation report automatically each time you send a fax.
OFF: never prints a confirmation report (You can print one manually using the
Report/Help button (see Print reports on page 51).
ERROR: prints only when an error occurs.

Re: Fax Machine - Sharp UX-B700 Everytime I send a fax I get a print out if the fax was sent or not. A whole paged is use... this is paper waste... can it be stopped?


Yes you can stop it printing the report. Use the menu to cruise through the settings for fax. You will find the reports section and recognize that you don't want the memory storage report, so disallow it by pressing th no key.

HOW CAN I STOP THE MACHINE FROM PRINTING AN ERROR REPORT AND WASTING A PAGE OF RIBBON


The brother fax machine will always print out a transmission report when there is a failure to send a fax.

There is no way to turn this feature off.
The closest option to this is turning transmission reports off, but this will still print out a message when the fax does not go through properly.

Hp officeject 6210 all in one printer


Sorry these printers has capability to send faxes from the computer only but not receive.

But your idea is right on wasting paper on printing incoming faxes, These days HP has launched a new model which can receive fax to your computer without wasting paper See the link bellow:

Can't stop the transmision report - continues to print page after page


Make sure the transmitter knows how to send a FAX, i personally wasted a lot of time and paper because the sender doesn't know that the FAX machine had an automatic document feeder and that all pages has to be put in position before sending, and not page by page while sending.
Also see in the FAX manual if it can avoid printing the transmission report. Most Panasonic Faxes can do that.
