Here's some info and possible steps to take. This is from the HP website.

Error 388 for a HP LaserJet 3050

The local machine has originated a fax session and detected a remote fax machine but has been unable to detect any T30 frames. If the machine is in V.17 mode, it is likely the connection has been interrupted. In V.34 mode is also possible for this error to occur due to compatibility problems with certain machines and/or line conditions.

Solution:

1. Reattempt the fax transmission at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved.

2. Disable V.34 on the local machine and attempt the transmission using the V.17 mode. ( See error 227 for changing to a slower speed or disabling V.34 .)

Disable V.34 on local machine V.34 is the modem protocol used by the product to send faxes. It is the worldwide standard for full-duplex modems sending and receiving data across telephone lines at 1,200 or 2,400 bps. The default setting for V.34 is ON . Follow the steps below to disable V.34 setting.

  1. Press Menu/Enter .
  2. Press the < or > buttons to select Fax Setup , then press Menu/Enter .
  3. Press the < or > buttons to select All Faxes , then press Menu/Enter .
  4. Press the < or > buttons to select V.34 , then press Menu/Enter .
  5. Press the < or > buttons to select OFF , then press Menu/Enter to save the selection.
Hope this helps, samson39

This is due to a hardware failure, the scanner assembly and the formatter board will need to be replaced.

NVRAM INIT
1. Turn off the all-in-one
2. Press and hold down the * and enter buttons.
3. Continue to hold down the buttons while you turn on the all-in-one. Hold the buttons throughout the entire power-on sequence.
4. When Permanent Storage Init. appears on the control-panel display, release the buttons.
5. Allow the all-in-one to return to Ready before using it. storage init. appears, and then release the buttons.

if this does not work contact hp 1800-334-5144.

SOURCE: sending fax for hp all

Error could be caused by the fax machine that you are sending to.
So you can receive faxes, but can't send them. Is it just the one number that causes the error, or is it all faxes sent that cause the error?
What I like to do on fax troubleshooting calls, is to call the phone company that the site is using. Tell them that you are having fax problems, and ask them to test the line.

Hp laser jet m1536dnf MFP won't send fax comm error 388


You can start by making sure that the photocopy is working, this is to ensure that the scanner is working. Next, try to isolate the issue if this is only happening to only one fax number? If all of these have negative results, I suggest for a hardware reset. Follow the steps for reset found here, How to Reset the HP LaserJet Pro M1536dnf Multifunction Printer. Goodluck :)

I've been trying to send a fax to an office in Sri Lanka for several days now, but it won't go. We are getting a Comm Error 388 in the fax error report. The unusual thing is we are able to send fax...


inernational fax calls quite often do not work on digitized phone lines or via satellite. You cannot fix that. maybe your fax has a "fallback 4800 bps" setting that might be helpful.

Comm errors


The fax machine needs to be reset. Simply shut off the machine, wait one minute, and turn on machine & fax. If turning off the machine does not clear your machine then you have to unplug the machine & follow the same procedures. Worked for me.
