Hi! Just bought a Brother MFC-L8900CDW all-in-one printer. It works great! However, at some point during the day, it just turns on and prints out several pages of what appears to be a fax log. This is not something I set up. This is certainly something I did not want. It's wasting paper and ink. I even unplugged my phone cord from the back in case it was initiating a fax. Anyone else have this issue? How do I stop my copier from printing this report every day?
or you can stop printing the logs and reports.
Here are some steps to stop by changing the settings on the printer. If your brother machine has a touchscreen please follow the steps...
Step 1: Press menu.
Step 2: Press the up or down arrow key to choose print reports that appears and press ok.
Step 3: Press the up or down arrow key to choose a fax journal or fax activity that appears and press ok.
Step 4: Press Back (mono) start or start to print the report.
Step 5: Press stop/exit.
In addition, You can set the brother machine to print the fx reports at a regular interval (every 50 faxes, every 6,12. 24 hours ) the default setting is every 50 faxes.
To set or change the interval at which the fax report prints follow the steps:-
Step 1: Press settings
Step 2: Press all settings
Step 3: Press the up or down arrow key to display Report setting.
Step 4: Press report setting.
Step 5: Press journal period
Step 6: Press the up or down arrow key to choose intervals
Step 7: Press time format or choose a day.
Step 8: Press up or down arrow to choose what time interval you want to choose.
Step 9: Press home.
That's how you can stop Brother fax journal report or set the time intervals on the brother printer.
