    My machine will not receive faxes.

     The fax machine rings and the screen says "receiving"  but eventually nothing is printed. 
    Kind Regards,

Why does my Kyocera FSC2126MPF print out a page with PCL XL Error on it?

It means your machine has identified an input - output error (I/O) probably receiving a corrupt data string or faulty communication port where it is connected to your computer or network. I/O ports are things like ethernet sockets, parallel ports, USB ports, and communications adapters of various types. I doubt someone is trying to fax 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
the operation, the communication mode, and the communication results.
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.

I'm getting an error 244 or 223 when receiving a fax. the fax only partially prints out

Error 244:

  • The user of the remote machine pressed the Stop key, causing the session to be prematurely terminated.
  • The remote fax machine determined that there was a feature incompatibility between the two machines and terminated the session. For example, the local machine wanted to initiate polling, but the remote machine did not support this mode of operation.

  • Make sure that the remote machine can accept and use polling.
  • Select a slower reception speed.
Error 223:

The local machine was unable to receive an entire page even after multiple attempts to receive the parts of the page that contain errors. This situation is usually due to extremely poor line conditions.

  • Try to receive the fax at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved
  • Select a slower reception speed.

What does COM-E mean when we try to send fax's and the transmissions has this written on it instead of OK.

It means "Communication Error".
The result might be twofold:
- the fax didn't reach it's destination because of communications error (any kind)
- the fax did reach it's destination, but part of it may be unreadable or distorted, or some pages of a multi-page fax did not go through.
In many cases, what the device perceives as an erroneous transmission, is perfectly readable by a human. Therefore it's good to call the recipient and ask if the fax is readable and if all the pages were received.

Top of page prints OK. Bottom blank

My first guess would be phone line problem. Print out an activity report (if you don't have a users manual you can download it at ) and check to see if you have had any communication errors. If you notice no errors then make 50 test copies. If your test copies look good then I would lean towards a phone line problem. if they come out like you have described then I would start with your toner and drum first, second laser and third main board.

Laserjet 3330 is resulting in fax Comm Errors 327, 232, 442, 356, 421 Comm Error 327 is always with fax # 780.467.6516. i can not fax to this number and when i receive from it, it always prints a Fax...

232-A communication failure has occurred between the two machines.
327-*Reattempt the fax reception at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved. Call the telephone provider if line conditions fail to improve.
356-The remote user has pressed the Stop key, causing the session to be aborted.
442-An error occurred during transmission after one or more partial pages had been sent. The transmitting machine was unable to restart the control channel (handshaking) before sending more data. This error typically occurs when the receiving fax disconnects after receiving part of a page but can also occur if the receiving fax is using a fax format that is incompatible with the HP fax machine (usually during color faxing).

Confirmation page

You can configure your HP all-in-one so that it automatically prints error and confirmation reports. If you need printed confirmation each time a fax is sent, follow these instructions before sending any faxes and select Send Only. To set automated report options from the control panel Press Setup. Press 2, and then press 1. This selects Print Report and then selects Fax Report Setup. clip_image001.gif Press to scroll through the following report types: Every Error: prints whenever there is any kind of fax error (default). Send Error: prints whenever there is a transmission error. Receive Error: prints whenever there is a receiving error. Every Fax: confirms every time a fax is sent or received. Send Only: prints every time a fax is sent indicating whether the fax was successfully sent or not. Off: does not print any error or confirmation reports. Press OK to select the report.
