Transmission Error Correcting Mode was used. When the sending and receiving fax machines support this protocol, they are able to correct errors in transmission that occur. You can turn it off if it is causing you a problem, but it shouldn't be. It makes the determination about ECM capabilities during the initial synchronization. No positive response from the other and and ECM is not employed during the transmission.

SOURCE: on my activity report, under comment is states TX

ECM (Error Correction Mode)
The Error Correction Mode (ECM) is a way for the fax machine to check the integrity of a fax transmission while it is in progress. ECM transmissions are possible only between machines that both have the ECM feature. If they do, you may send and receive fax messages that are continuously checked for their
integrity.
Sufficient memory must be available in your FAX/MFC for this feature to work.ECM (Error Correction Mode) Detects errors during fax transmission and resends the page(s) that had an error.
If you have Call Waiting, RingMaster, Voice Mail, an answering machine, alarm system or any other
custom feature on a single phone line with your fax machine, it may create a problem sending or
receiving fax data.
For Example:
Your Brother machine handles the Caller ID and Call Waiting/Caller ID subscriber services.
However, if you subscribe to only Call Waiting or some other custom service and its signal comes
through the line while your machine is sending or receiving a fax, the signal can temporarily interrupt
or disrupt the fax data. Brother's ECM feature should help overcome this problem. This condition
is related to the telephone system industry and is common to all devices that send and receive
information on a single, shared line with custom features. If avoiding a slight interruption is crucial
to your business, a separate line with no custom features is recommended.

Can you please tell me how to print Fax activity report each time? means whenever I send a fax I need confirmation receipt thats its gone through.Can't find anything in Manual.


ACTIVITY REPORT

The FAX is factoryset to automatically print an ACTIVITY REPORT after every 20

transactions. If you want to print an ACTIVITY REPORT before it is automatically

printed, follow this procedure:

Transactions in an ACTIVITY REPORT are listed chronologically.

1 Press Function.

2 Press Report.

3 Press OK.

• The FAX prints an ACTIVITY

REPORT.

• If you prefer the FAX not to print an ACTIVITY REPORT after every 20 transactions,

disable the ACTIVITY REPORT setting ( p. 145).

• Please note that only one transaction number (TX/RX NO.) is assigned when you send

a document to several fax numbers in one operation.

Report of fax


Hey renzo737 - Follow these steps to have your machine print a report after you send each fax:

1)Hit the Fax button, then the Menu button.
2)Press the < and > buttons to scroll until you reach
TX Settings. Hit OK.
3)Use the < and > buttons to scroll until you reach TX REPORT.
Then hit ok.
4)First you want ATTACH TX IMAGE and then you want
PRNT FOR EACH TX.(it may also say as TX REPORT)

On your machine under TX report it may just say PRINT ERROR ONLY, which means only print if there's an error, or the PRNT FOR EACH TX. You'll find it easily. You want the print for each tx option. This will print a report and give confirmation that your fax went through after each fax. If you have any problems understandind this or need more help just give a shout.
If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. Like I said if you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks and have a good one.

FAX back


Do you mean to get the paper document back out of the machine? If it doesn't feed out automatically, it may need to be repaired.
If you mean that you want confirmation that a fax was sent, you can turn on the TX (Transmit) REPORT. This will print out the first page of a fax sent successfully.

1. Press the Additional Functions button.
2. Use the arrows to select FAX SETTINGS. Press the Set button.
3. Use the arrows to select REPORT SETTINGS. Press Set.
4. Use the arrows to select TX REPORT. Press Set.
5. Use the arrows to select OUTPUT YES. Press Set.
6. Press the Stop/Reset button.

The machine will automatically print an Activity Report after every 20 faxes (sent or received). If you want an Activity Report at any time:

1. Press the Function button.
2. Press Report button (number 03 on the left side of the keypad)
3. Use the arrows to select ACTIVITY REPORT.
4. Press the Set button.

MP830 Canon Faxing problem


Display the fax menu and then select Print Report\List and print the Users Data List. Check the setting of the ECM TX setting. If this is ON turn it OFF. This is the Error Correction Mode setting, probability is the fax you are sending to is not ECM compatible. The MP830 is suppose to automatically send in standard mode if receiving machine is not ECM compatible however I am not sure how well this works. Turn the ECM setting off by displaying the Fax Menu and then select Maintenance\Settings, Device Settings, Fax Settings, TX settings, ECM TX.
