Check the slit glass for white out or other foreign debris stuck to it and clean with isopropyl alchohol. Even a small dot or even dust can cause that. the led lamp array could also have some bad sections in it so it will not distribute the light evenly on the document to be scanned. If this doesn't help post a comment and I will research further and provide more solutions.

When I send a fax, the recipient gets all dark or black sheet. Thinking this was the recipients problem, I faxed again to a different fax number, same thing happened.

To fix the problem you have to check the scanner of your fax machine. It might not be functioning properly. Try to observe the fax machine while sending a document, look at the scanner section and see if the light of the scanner is turned on or lighted. If it's no longer lighted you have to replace it.

I have a hp all-in-one printer 3050. i can recieved fax ok but i can't send a proper fax as they recieve my fax black and dark and can't read fax i sent. i think it might be my fax setting on fax machine.

Hello cmcneill3

Does this happen w/ more than one recipient of your faxes?

If you haven't done so already, please, send a fax to a different recipient (one using a different machine to receive the fax on).

HERE is HPs information, downloads, etc. for your HP LaserJet All-In-One 3050.

I didn't find anything there that describes the issue your recipient is experiencing.

Please, use the All-In-One to make a copy of a document. How does the copy come out?

Please, post back w/ your answers and any other information you might have (the more details you can provide the better) and we'll see if we can get this issue resolved or at least diagnosed for you.

Thank you

What happens when you make a copy on your machine?

1 Answer

Copies here and recipients faxes: dark, lined

How long has the drum been in there?
try this:
1-take out toner, look and see if it is ok. do you see stripes on it?
2- look at the drum are there any black rings on it? ( you did not specify white or black lines)
3- where the glass is on the opposite side ( the part you lifted to clean the glass, look at it standing from the back. you will see a white metal plate with some springs in it if you touch it. this is the reference that the fax has if there is/are a black dot on it it will give you a black line clean carefully. if it is scratched use white out to cover and make white again.

For the darkness try making a copy in photo mode if it is still too dark change drum.
