SOURCE: error code

Hi Mike,

The error message "A communication error has occurred during the fax transmission" normally indicates that for some reason the fax call was interrupted or there was some interference on the telephone line during the fax transmission. Some possible interruption/interference on transmission(s) are:
1. the telephone line is not a dedicated fax line - there could be an extension which was inadvertently lifted/used during a fax call;
2. noisy/dirty telephone/fax line - corrosion on the terminal, joints, connectors, pins, plugs, jacks, telephone outlet or even on the provider's system. This could be determined by using the handset of the fax machine, dialing a single digit (to make the dialtone disappear) and listening to the phone's earpiece. There should be no crackling sound or static but a clean/dead air. In some cases where the telephone/fax line is shared with the DSL, then it could be the filter/splitter used;
3. some phone lines can still accept an incoming even though in use (call waiting) - the ringing of the 2nd call is more than enough interruption/interference;
4. RFI (radio frequency interference) - an electronic device that transmits a radio signal such as a two way radio, a WiFi router or mobile phone; and/or
5. noisy/dirty power AC mains -the outlet/AC power line where the fax device is plugged in has some other appliances/devices that draws power from it that can cause static/transients/spikes along the power line. Examples are water dispensers with built-in cooler/heater, dehumidifier, aircons, refrigerators and any other that switches itself on/off. A simple solution would be to use a different outlet and/or use a surge suppressor.

As to the "error code number 321*", pls post back the make and model of your fax device. Alternately, you can reference this site. If your fax machine/device is an HP brand (and/or the receiving end's fax machine is), pls check this link.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: not receiving any faxes but sending

Note: check your equipment for:
Fax machine must be connected to an answer machine

Receiving a fax automatically:
1 Make sure the Fax Auto Answer light is on.
2 To set the number of telephone rings before the printer automatically receives faxes,
Receiving a fax with an answering machine
When a telephone ring is detected, the answering machine picks up the call.
If the printer detects a fax, it receives the fax and disconnects the answering machine.
If the printer does not detect a fax, the answering machine receives the call.
2 Set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does.
For example, if you set the answering machine to answer calls after three rings, set the printer to answer calls
after five rings.
3 To set the number of telephone rings before the printer automatically receives faxes.

SOURCE: Receiving error 388. Can receive faxes but won't connect with other fax machines when trying to send

Hi,

The reason for the error code:
4e5e48b.jpg Error Code: 386, 387, 388, 389, 390, 391, 392, 393, 394, 395 Definition

There is too much noise on the line for a valid connection between two fax machines to complete. The noise problem might go away over time.

Solution

Retry the fax reception at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved. Call the telephone provider if line conditions fail to improve.

I have an HP 8500A printer/scanner/fax. Everything works but the fax. I can receive but I can't fax out. I get error 348, 321 & 358.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Sir/Ma'am these error are basically due the Communication error of Receiving/Remote Machines. But each error shows different meaning.If during fax you receive the Error 348 then it may be because of several reasons like:-
  1. The remote machine failed to respond to a fax command from the local machine because the connection was interrupted. These errors can occur if the phone lines in the area to be faxed are old or there is noise,Other reasons can include power outages and other power-related problems.
  2. When The call-waiting service can cause this error or the remote user pressed the Stop key while the reception was in progress.
You can solve the Error 348 by the following
  • Retry the fax reception at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved. Call the telephone provider if line conditions fail to improve.
  • Disable ECM. Errors might still occur, and might result in a degraded image quality on the received page. However, the ability to send the entire document will be improved.
  • Try sending at a lower transmission speed.
If during fax you receive the Error 321 then it is because of:-
  1. There was a communication error with the receiving fax machine due to poor telephone line conditions.

You can solve the Error 321 by the following:-
  • Set the receiving machine to receive at a slower transmission speed
  • If the session fails after sending several pages of a large document, resend the document as several smaller documents.
  • Retry the fax reception at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved. Call the telephone provider if line conditions fail to improve.

If during fax you receive the Error 358 then it is because of:-
  • The remote user pressed the Stop key, causing the session to be terminated.
  • The remote machine encountered a system problem such as no paper or a paper jam. This prevented the fax from receiving any more pages, and caused it to terminate the session prematurely.
  • The call-waiting service can cause this error. The click, heard for an incoming call, is actually a momentary disconnect of the line.
  • The remote machine encountered an incompatible feature causing it to terminate the session.

You can solve the Error 358 by the following:-
  • Configure the remote machine for document reception by clearing any paper jams, loading sufficient paper, and clearing any other error messages.
  • Configure the local fax machine to use a slower reception speed.
  • Enable or disable the ECM setting.

I hope this solution helps you and you have clear picture in your mind.

Let me know if you have any confusion in your mind


Sir/Ma'am, Your Rating as Five Stars for this solution and Words of appreciation as Feedback for me will be really esteemed
Thank You for taking my service

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.

Error 351


  • The following is for error code 351
  • The remote machine failed to respond to a fax command from the local machine because the connection was interrupted. These errors can occur if the phone lines in the area to be faxed are old or there is noise (static on the phone line). Other reasons can include power outages and other power-related problems.
  • The call-waiting service can cause this error. The click, heard for an incoming call, is actually a momentary disconnect of the line.
  • The remote user pressed the Stop key while the reception was in progress.
  • Under rare conditions, incompatibility between the two machines might cause the remote machine to abandon the call.


Solutions
  • Retryt the fax reception at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved. Call the telephone provider if line conditions fail to improve.
  • Disable ECM. Errors might still occur, and might result in a degraded image quality on the received page. However, the ability to send the entire document will be improved. Try sending at a lower transmission speed.

How do I fix an "error 442" on the fax part of my hp 6110 all-in-one


Per HP:

Definition

An error occurred during transmission after one or more partial pages were sent. The sending machine was unable to restart the control channel connection(handshake) before sending more data. This error typically occurs when the receiving fax disconnects after receiving part of a page. It can also be caused if the receiving fax is using a fax format incompatible with the HP fax (usually during color faxing).

Solution

Try the fax at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved.

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).

Error 232 receiving fax


fax error 232 indicates a communication failure between the sending and receiving units. I'd check for line noise on the phone (you can hear it as cracks and pops) If your fax line is not dedicated, any noise from another phone pickup or an answwering machine can cause the failure.
