Avoid printing Transmission Verification Report

Each time there is an error on sending the fax, the unit prints out a whole page Transmission Verification Report showing the error.

Is there any way to avoid this printing? I can see the error message on the LCD, and would like to avoid wasting paper.

Thanks.

    I had originally gone through the manual. There is a way to turn it off for successful faxes, but no way in manual to turn it off for unsuccessful attempts.

  • raydiant Jan 11, 2008

    I went through all the fax settings, and it only allows me to set transmission printing off for successful sends, not for error ones. If you know the steps, do let me know, but I can't find it in the user manual or playing around with the printer.

You have to change the fax menu settings. Here you can compute the machine to avoid the error reports (see manual chap. fax settings)

Fax transmission reports


What you are explaining should work. If you need prior activity reports from previous faxes, you can press Function then 2 (Act. Report)

I think you might need to press Function, then 7 then 1


From the manual:

Transmission Verification (Xmit) Report You can use the Xmit Report as proof that you sent a fax. This report lists
the time and date of transmission, and whether the transmission was successful.

When the feature is OFF, the report is printed automatically only if an error occurred during transmission. If the report indicates NG, send the document again. If the report indicates you should check the readability of certain pages, resend those pages.
If you typically send multiple faxes to the same destinations, you may need a reminder to identify each fax transmission. You can select OFF+IMAGE or ON+IMAGE to print a portion of the first page of the fax message on the report.


1 For the FAX, press Function , 7 , 1 .
For the MFC, press Function , 1 , 7 , 1 .
2 Press or to select OFF, OFF+IMAGE, ON or ON+IMAGE and press Set .
3 Press Stop to exit.


Hope this helps you.

How to stop to print the journal after send fax everytime?


Sending Confirmation
This report shows the fax number, the number of pages, elapsed time of

You can set up your machine to print the message confirmation report in
one of the following ways (see page 5.3):
• Automatically after each transmission (ON)
• Automatically only if an error occurs during transmission (ERR)
• No report printed at all (OFF). You can print this report manually at
any time you want.
SENDING CONFIRM - A confirmation report shows whether the
transmission was successful or not, how many pages were sent, etc.
Select ON to print a confirmation report automatically each time you
send a fax.
Select OFF to turn this feature off.
Select ERROR to print only when an error occurs and the transmission
was not successful.
