Error 344- Fax Function

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.

The Number is dialed it says Connecting but never goes any further than that.

I tried adding in Pauses in the number that does not help. I can hear when the other FAX is Busy and it comes back with a FAX busy Msg. so I know it can Communicate with the other machine. It just doesn't seem to want to finish the job when sending?

I was getting the error as well. This solution will probably not work for everyone, but it did fix my issues.

This will sound silly but I simply unplugged the telephone cord and re-plugged it back in. It works fine now.

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

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)

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.

Fax


344 Error can be caused by a few things. One of the following is occurring:
The sending fax has failed to respond to a fax command from the receiving fax due to poor line quality or fax interruption.

The sender has pressed cancel button while the reception was in progess.

In rare conditions, incompatibility has been encountered by two faxes and causes the sending fax to abandon the fax call.

Solutions:
Fax session was using ECM. Check your fax settings under the fax set-up menu on the printer. Disable the ECM (Error Correction Mode).

Fax at a different time to see if line quality improves.

Try relocating the fax to a differnt phone plug.

Replace the phone cord attached to the fax/printer.

Comm Error 344 is: (Note that this is on the receivers end)

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.

Under rare conditions, incompatibility between the two machines can cause the remote machine to simply abandon the call.
