Re: Receiving an error code 344 when faxing.

Hi decisions13,


The error code means that The remote machine has failed to respond to a fax command from the local machine because the connection is interrupted. If you've successfully sent faxes to this number before, then you can reattempt the fax transmission at a different time when line condition have improved. You can also run a fax test from your printer and check if all tests pass. A line test can also be run by your telephone company to ensure stable fax line conditions.


You can also disable Error Correction Mode by Setup menu (on printer) > Fax Setup > Advanced Fax Setup > Error Correction Mode > Off.


Hope this works for you!

Cheers! :smileyhappy:

I too am having this issue. I have telephone thru a modem and will try disconnecting and reconnecting it after 60 seconds to see if that helps.
