Whenever i send a fax, the machine confirms by viewing 'TRANSMITTING OK' but the addressee receives a blank document

Check the baud rate of your transmissions. Slow them down to the slowest setting and send a test fax to a helpful person. Slowly increase the baud rate (communication data speed) and send the fax test. When the fax doesn't show up on the receive site, then step one baud rate speed back, and save the setting.

It could also be your fax that is faulty, or even the receive sites fax, also being faulty.

To test your copy-head, insert a document into your loading section of the fax and press copy. If the copy prints out fine, then you know the head is reading correctly.

It is also possible that the receiver fax (the other end) has a printhead failure.

Change baud rate on okifax 5050

The baud rate is automatically set by the machine when it connects to the remote machine. The machines start at the highest speed and drop down until both machines can send/receive without any errors then they send the pages. You can not manually set the speed.

I cant figure out how to lower the baud rate on a brother intellifax 3800

On Brother machines the baud rate is set automatically during the handshake with the other machines, turning off the ECM usually helps when you are getting a lot of communication errors.

Send and receive speed

That's not even a coherent response. Even analog phones go from an analog signal from your home, to a digital signal at the carrier, to an analog signal at the recipients end. It all goes digital at some point.

Fax machines work fine with a digital phone. The baud rate may need to be lowered in some cases, but working for a cable company, I've personally worked with hundreds of fax machines that work just fine.

Try lowering the baud rate and/or using a DSL filter if you are having problems. If you are unable to find the baud rate or speed setting on your fax, you may want to contact Canon to find out how.

Need the baud rate to be 9600

fax machines are ANALOG devices and will not work reliably on a DIGITAL phone line.

Baud rate

1. Why 9600?

Because you are using a VOIP service it can from time to time lose connection briefly. The slower the speed the less data can be loss do to network congestion. It also gives the error correcting function of the receiving fax a better chance of filling in any lost data.
9600 is a good choice becasue the industry minimum is 9600. This means you will be able to communicate pretty much any fax thats is still tickin today. Raising the speed will get you a faster transfer but will also increase the chance that you are sending data at a faster rate than the recieving fax can send.

2. How to change the baud rate....

Press Menu/Set, 2, 0, 1.
Press ▲ or ▼ to select Basic or
Normal (or High*).
Press Menu/Set.
Press Stop/Exit.
* High is available for FAX-2910, FAX-2920
and MFC-7225 only.
Basic reduces the modem speed to 9600
bps. Unless interference is a recurring
problem on your phone line, you may
prefer to use it only when needed.
Normal sets the modem speed at
14400 bps.
High sets the modem speed at
33600 bps.

Sending fax

Wow. Digital lines are difficult to fax over. Most are still set to use analogue lines.
Those are also very odd changes. Most fax machines no longer even have a setting as low as 9600 baud.
Your fax may not have the ECM mode as changable, may just be built in, but that is not a function you normally would want to turn off. ECM is Error Correction Mode.
This honestly just sounds like a disclaimer to excuse their system's poor fax service.
