The error code 386 indicates Unable to complete the handshake.
Seems there is some conjection the phone line between you and the recipent's phone line
Try to send the fax at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved
You can have the telephone company check the telephone lines of both ends for any further interuptions

Check the link bellow for a detailed resolution on error codes:

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.

Retry the fax reception at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved. Call the telephone provider if line conditions fail to improve.

Fax Error 386, HP 6110xi Fax failed Is there a solution?


See http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=uk&docname=buu02549#Error386
Too much noise on the phone line: e.g. bad connection, unshielded phone cable next to a electrical machine (motor!), temporary problems in phone service providers network.
Fax is essential data transmission by beeping noises. If crackling on the line or other disturbances degrade signal quality too much, the data cannot transmitted properly anymore.

You can not send or receive faxes with any consistency on Broadband lines. You need an analog telephone line for these to work. Fax machines work on analog technology.
