Question about HP LaserJet 3050 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

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.

Faxing

  1. Turn Off JBig compression.
  2. Move the fax to another location. It may be that they have noise on the line, an alarm, etc.
  3. Turn ECM Off , turn Off V.34 and set the baud rate to 9,600 or lower.
  4. Ensure fax firmware version is at the latest.
  5. Ensure firmware version for fax matches device firmware.
  6. Ensure that the device is using an analog line and phone cable that came with unit.
  7. Reset fax to factory defaults; configure just the basic settings needed to operate (country code, company name, and fax number).
  8. Reseat fax modem in formatter (or Xircom card if legacy MFP).
  9. Try a disk init. (Contact your regions HP Customer Care Center for these steps)

The remote machine has failed to respond to a fax command from the product because the connection is interrupted.

The remote user has pressed the Stop button while the remote machine was receiving.

My HP 8600 Premium no longer sends or accepts FAXes. It says it's connecting, but never does. And returns error 344. I know the other fax machines are working fine. Please advise.


Here's a document that explains some on the fax error codes: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=buu02549
The code 344 indicates noise or static on the line and usually the best way to get around that is to disable Error Correction Mode and/or lower the fax speed.
To disable the Error Correction Mode (ECM) touch the right arrow, then Setup, then Advanced Fax Setup, then down arrow and then Error Correction Mode and set it to Off.
To lower the fax speed, also go to Advanced Fax Setup and set it to Slow.

Error 386


Hi Error 344,

Is telling you the remote end has hung up the call which means it may not be a fax number (you called a voice line number for example, you can confirm if it as fax by just calling the number on your phone if you hear the whistles of a fax then that's not the cause).

I'm not familiar with the HP model but if it is "Super Group 3" (you can tell this if the transmission speed is capable of above 14.4kbps) and you're trying to call an older fax the remote machine may not be able to recognise the "Calling tone" your machine is sending and so it hangs up. You can try to remedy this by temporarily disabling Error Correction Mode (ECM) in your machines fax set up menu this will disable the Super Group 3 capabilities of the fax and maximum transmission speed will be reduced to the older Group 3 machine. HP website recommends the following:
Error Code: 344, 345, 346, 347, 348, 349 ECM, 350 ECM, 351 ECM, 352 ECM, 353 ECM, 354, 355 Definitions
  • 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.

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.

Hp laserjet 3050 has comp error 413, cannot receive fax


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.

Solutions
  • 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.
Also, here is a link for every error code your fax machine could ever display:http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=uk&dlc=en&docname=buu02549&lc=en#Error396

I get the error 344 message continuously to this one number i'm trying to fax to. i can fax to any other number, but this one # almost always produces this error 344?


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.
