ECM error message


Noise in the phone line, or low signal strength during fax transmission can result in fax failures. Noise or poor signal strength can cause a partial or complete loss of fax information during transmission. When Error Correction Mode (ECM) is on, the receiving fax machine checks the fax information for errors during reception. If the receiving fax machine detects an error, the receiving fax requests that the sending fax resend the information. Resending all or part of the information can make transmission times longer, but helps improve the quality of the received fax.
If the phone line quality or signal strength is extremely poor, sending a fax can fail. Turning off ECM can improve the ability of the product to send a fax successfully when the phone line quality is poor. However, the image quality of the received fax might be poor.
If ECM must be off to send faxes successfully, have the telephone service provider check the phone line quality. For an HP Fax, turning off ECM from the control panel does not necessarily mean that fax transmission will not use ECM. Fax products use ECM as follows.
  • All faxes sent in color use ECM.
  • All faxes sent at the highest transmission speed use ECM.
  • The ECM setting affects only sent faxes, not received faxes.
Enabling or disabling Error correction mode (ECM)
  1. On the product control panel, press the Menu button (c01743394.gif ).
  2. Use the arrow buttons (c01073166.jpg ) to select Basic Fax , and then press the OK button (c01335940.jpg ).
  3. Use the arrow buttons (c01073166.jpg ) to select ECM Mode , and then press the OK button (c01335940.jpg ).
  4. Use the arrow buttons (c01073166.jpg ) to select On or Off , and then press the OK button (c01335940.jpg ) to confirm the setting.
  5. Press the Back button (c01496476.gif ) twice to return to the main screen.

Does Windows 7 have the ability to send and


Well Yes, if you have a Modem, You can connect a Modem & then one can get software that you can use as a Fax machine. Also I believe there is a Built In Fax software too. However I recommend a third party setup. There are lots of really good FREEWARE Fax programs. Ensure they work with Win 7.

I believe I have somehow "lost" the ability to send a fax. All it does is ring and then make the fax noise like it is picking up, but then the message will say, "TELEPHONE". and absolutely nothing will...


sounds like you have the fax set to tel mode or the cable is in the wrong connector check the entry point for the fax cable that it is in the line socket and not the tel socket also check that when you are sending the fax that it says load document as it might not be getting the paper set correctly so thinks you are doing a tel call.. good luck A

CANNOT RECEIVE A FAX


Slim1234,
          A multitude of problems might cause receive problems, and the User's Guide has no "receive Problems" section under troubleshooting - so here goes:

        If I had to guess right off the bat, your problem is probably
that the FAX is in "FAX Storage" mode, and is out of memory.
In this mode, it will print FAXes until it runs out of memory.
See problem "g" below.

   a. Voice mail active on the line - if voice mail and FAX-2820 are
       set to answer the line on the same number of rings, there's
       no way to know which will answer first.

   b. Voice mail active on line - if voice mail is set to answer in
       fewer rings than the FAX, then the FAX will always lose
       (but you'll have no problems Xmitting).

   c. Call Waiting active on the line - the call waiting "boop" will
       kill incoming FAXes (and outgoing FAXes too, but your
       personnel will retry the outging ones until they succeed
       and you may only hear complaints about incoming FAXes).

   d. Your FAX-2820 is set to "Manual" or "External TAD" mode.
       Reset it to "FAX only" or "FAX/Tel" mode (depending on
       your office use of the FAX telephone line).
       How to do this: Menu/Set,0,1 <up/down to select mode>
                              press Menu/Set.
   NOTE: your LCD display tells you your receive mode:
       Mine says "Sleep 22:08 Fax", telling me I'm in "FAX only"
       mode, and its 10:08 PM.

   e. You've set the FAX to RING DELAY - if so, the FAX
       must win. Setting ring delay to 00 tells the FAX to answer
       the line silently (an advantage for a busy MD's office).
       How to change this: Menu/Set,2,1,1
       Ref: FAX-2820 User's Guide p.4-2

   f. You dont have a shared (FAX/human) line set to
     "Easy Receive"; if someone answers the call and
      Easy Receive is off, then they need to press START on
      the fax machine front panel or dial *51 and hang up.
      How to change it: Menu/Set,2,1,3
      REF: Fax-2820 User's Guide p. 4-2

  g. You may be set up for "FAX storage."  In this mode, received
      FAXes will be stored (and printed) until you run out of
      memory (quickly done on a Brother FAX-2820), then you
      get nada (but sending FAXes still works).
      How to reset this: Menu/Set,2,5,1 <up/down>
      REF: Fax-2820 User's Guide p.6-2

  h. You may have set up FAX forwarding.  In this mode, sending
      FAXes will work fine, but all incoming FAXes willl be sent
      to another telephone number.
      How to turn it off: Menu/Set,2,5,1 <up/down>

      If this laundry list of (sending OK, Receiving dead) scenarios
 doesn't resolve the problem, email your FAX number to me
and we'll do some cross-country FAX debugging.

                                  Dave in tech support
                                  amityjones71@gmail.com
P.S.
      The above features may have been set remotely by a
   nefarious (or somewhat knowledgeable) individual - remember
   that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing (even for
   FAXes). See (extensive) remote programming instructions
   on p.6-6 of the User's Manual.

        To print out the caller ID list - and possibly find out the
   source of the remote programming:
   Menu/Set,2,0,3 <up/down to "print report">, Menu/Set,
    Start, <Caller ID report prints>, Stop/Exit
   Ref: Brother Fax-2820 User's Guide p.A-3

FO 2850 - Power Outage Aftermath


Unplug the machine for 4 hours & then plug back in. If you get the same symptoms, it will be cheaper to replace with a new one. Power supply is probably blown.
