Error 346 means the connection was interrupted. Try a different phone cord or jack. If you have a voicemail service that 'pulses' the dial tone when you pick up (to let you know you have messages), it can cause that error too; try clearing the messages.

Adding the +1 is normal when dialing with the area code (using a 10-digit number). If you weren't using the area code, try it.

Otherwise, as a last resort, you can try resetting the fax back to factory default:
-turn off and unplug.
-Hold the # and 3 keys down while plugging in the power cord. If that doesn't work, try # and 4.

Good luck!

There could be a couple of reasons,

a. Unplug the fax line from the wall jack and plug in a regular telephone.
b. From another phone call the phone that you just installed.
c. If it rings, the number is correct.
2. Could be bad phone wire from wall to fax
3. Could be bad fax card in printer.
4. Did it ever work?

My fax machine will not send. When I dial the number it does nothing. This just happened and I have faxed on it before.


No polling capability at remote side.If th number you dial is a Personal Web Server it only supports 10 concurrent connections. HP Toptools usually uses 3 connections for each user, so after three users invoke Toptools, PWS starts to slow down. Rapidly changing tabs can result in too many connections temporarily.

Cannot send faxes on my all in one hp office jet 5610


If the recipient side is ringing, then the problem is on their end. It sounds like the receiving fax is not set for auto-answering a fax call. A receiving fax machine should pick up and start to attempt the reception even if the fax number is dialed from a normal voice-only telephone; the receiving machine has no idea if the caller is a fax or a regular phone. It should pick up regardless and start to negiotiate the fax (that's the high-pitched whistling sound at the beginning of the call).

Fax Error Codes


ERROR 346 The remote machine has 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 are old or if noise is present (static on the phone line). Other reasons could be power outages and other power-related problems.
