Following could be the reason behind this issue:

1. Check ink cartridges of the recieving printer.
2. Make a copy from your printer,if there is any problem while copying then replace the printer.
3. If the copying is not fine then clean the scan feeder, andif it is fine then it is an issue wih the other printer.

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
