I have been unable to send faxes to different numbers for months now. I keep getting Error 344. It always sounds like HP 3050 is able to go as far as establishing the connection and then it fails.
Please help. I need this for my business and can't afford to keep running out to a fax/copy place when I should be doing this from home.
Disconnect your answering machine can help if it is on the same line. this has worked for me before, but NOT today! disconnect any slicers. not sure if that also means turn off computer if dsl. maybe it worked form e before cuz the computer was off. doesnt happen that it is off often, but mayeb. it's what i am going to try next.

During a V.34 transmission, the local machine is unable to connect (handshake) with the remote machine and is consequently unable to send a T30 frame. This occurs when the line is disconnected or if line conditions degrade during the session.
Remove any pass-through devices from the phone line, and then try the fax again.
Confirm that the fax/phone cable is no longer than required, and that it does not pass near unshielded electric motors such as fans, heaters, or household appliances.
Try to send the fax at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved.
There are 4 reasons for Error 344 to occur when sending or receiving afax.
1. The remote machine failed to respond to a fax command from the local machinebecause the connection was interrupted. These errors can occur if the phonelines in the area to be faxed are old or there is noise (static on the phoneline). Other reasons can include power outages and other power-relatedproblems.
2. The call-waiting service can cause this error. The click, heard for anincoming call, is actually a momentary disconnect of the line.
3. The remote user pressed the Stop key while the reception was in progress.
4. Under rare conditions, incompatibility between the two machines might causethe remote machine to abandon the call.
Solution 1 Try to send a fax at a different time when telephone line conditions haveimproved.
Souliton 2 Try sending at a lower transmission speed.
Keep me posted and thank you for using FixYa! Jas247
Then the problem is most definately on the fax you're trying to send to, and not on your machine. If it works to all other numbers but not to that specific one, then you can shift the blame to the other guy.
