Question about Brother MFC 6490CW InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Everything works well except our outgoing faxes. Send them out and get confirmation that they're received. But receipients usually have either lines running across the paper so data can't be read or they only get half sheets or, in some cases, they don't receive anything at all. Any suggestions?

Hi! As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you remove the unit from power source and press the power button while the unit is unplugged. Let it sit for atleast 1minute to reset the unit's system. After a minute turn off the unit, plug it to power source, turn it on and see how it goes. This can resolve the problem. HOpe this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Transmission report


In programming you will find under "Reports" a setting for transmission confirmation report. Typically this is not turned on as a factory setting because fo our new green attitude. It wastes paper. Any time you need to confirm a transmission you can simply press the report button( some times followed by the "Set" button) and get a list fo the last 40 transactions( incoming and outgoing combined)

Wish to print outgoing fax log date/time/number


Hi,

I don't think there's a log you can print but you can do the following. Not quite what you want, but better than nothing...

You need to set the fax confirmation option to log faxes before you send anything. The default option is off, so you won't be able to get a fax log for anything you've already sent unfortunately.

1. Press Setup
2. Press 2 then press 1. This displays the Print Report menu
3. Select Fax Confirmation
4. Press c00424037.gif to highlight one of the following, then press OK

Off Does not print a fax confirmation report when you send and receive faxes successfully. This is the default setting.
On Fax Send Prints a fax confirmation report for every fax you send.
On Fax Receive Prints a fax confirmation report for every fax you receive.
Send & Receive Prints a fax confirmation report for every fax you send and receive.

Hi my canon mx310 will not fax any ideas


disconnect all equipments using the phone line (everything)
connect the fax directly to a wall jack (a working one)

Send a one page black and white text fax to 1-888-473-2963

When your fax is received by the Test Fax Service, a return fax will be generated to you within five minutes confirming that fax was received. This verifies that you can both send and receive a fax with your fax machine.
