Re: Officejet v40xi error code 346

Hello Tony -

Error code 346 is defined as a fax transmit error. The remote machine has failed to respond to a fax command from the local machine due to the connection being 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 has pressed the Stop key while the reception was in progress.
Under rare conditions incompatibility between the two machines may cause the remote machine to simply abandon the call.

*Re-attempt 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 may still occur, and may result in a degraded image quality on the received page. However, the ability to transmit the entire document will be improved.
*Try sending at a lower transmission speed.
