HP LaserJet Enterprise MFP, HP OfficeJet Enterprise MFP, HP PageWide Enterprise MFP - Fax error messages on the printer control panel

If the fax process is interrupted, or if an error occurs during a fax transmission or reception, a two-part status/error description is generated by the fax subsystem on the printer. Normal or successful faxes also generate messages indicating success.

The message information consists of a text description and a numeric code (a few messages do not include numeric codes). Only the text part of the message is displayed on the printer control panel. However, both the text message and numeric code are listed in the Fax Activity Report, Fax Call Report, and the Fax T.30 Trace Report. The numeric code is shown in parentheses after the text part of the message in the reports.

The fax modem generates the numeric code. Usually a numeric code of (0) indicates a normal modem response. Some messages always display a numeric code of (0), other messages can have a range of numeric codes, and a few messages have no numeric code.

Usually, a numeric code of (0) indicates that an error was not associated with the fax modem, but occurred in another part of the fax system or printing system. Non-zero error codes give further detail into the particular action or process that the modem is executing, and they do not necessarily indicate that there is a problem with the modem.

Persistent error messages with numeric codes different than those listed in the tables below require assistance from customer support. Print a Fax T.30 Trace Report before contacting customer support to help identify the problem.
