Question about HP 1050 Plain Paper Inkjet Fax

1 Answer

We have a HP 1050 fax machine. Usually when we send something, it displays send ECM and the number of pages. Occasionally it displays send G3 and the number of pages. I can't find anywhere in the user guide re: what is meant by G3 and if the documents were actually sent.

This is just the transition speed and line condition and you dont have to worry about it , the machine will give you an error code if the faxes dont go through alturnativly contact the reciever of the fax to check that they have recieved it

G3 means poor line condition

Can't get fax machine to work. I need to enter ECM mode on the machine so I can receive faxes but on the report print out it's saying mode G3. I can send faxes but can't receive them. Please...


Doubt if you need to set up the fax with ECM ( error correction mode )...a lot of fax's come with ECM these days set to ON. Don't know why because in the majority of cases the phone lines are of good enough quality that its not necessary. However, that said; I would suggest you pick up your handset and listen to the dial tone on the phone/fax line and listen to see if you are hearing static noises...if you do then its likely you have a bad line and should report it to your phone provider.
If the line is good, then I would ask you to try and make a phone call off your fax machine(assuming it has a handset) and again listen to the sounds off the line. I would then get someone locally with a fax machine to send you a test page to see if the machine works from a different number/location.

My hp 1040 will not pick up fax after the fifth ring answering machine picks after forth ring can't tell the between phone call or a fax used to before changed date on answering machine fax quite working


Set rings to answer
You can select the number of rings that will occur before the fax answers an incoming call. If you are using your machine as both a telephone and a fax machine, we suggest you set the ring count to at least 4 to give you time to answer.
TIP: HP 1050 Fax: The Toll Saver function for the Digital Message Center interacts with Rings to Answer. See Toll Saver on page 40. If you have the HP 1050 Fax and have Toll Saver turned on, set the Rings to Answer to 2.
1. Press Menu repeatedly until BASIC FAX displays and press Start/Enter.
Rings to Answer will display.
2. Press Start/Enter.
3. Enter the number of rings you want (2-7) and press Start/Enter.
The HP Fax rings the set number of times and then answers. It then produces a different sounding ring to alert you to which type of call is incoming.
• The additional ring may occur once for a fax call
• The additional ring occurs 5 times for a voice call. After the 5 additional rings, the answering machine will answer.

HP 1050 Fax Machine will not send out faxes. It sends the first page then prints out paper saying paper jam, but we have not paper jammed in the machine.


Sorry but still do not have it fixed...i printed off the manual for this fax but our problem is not on the trouble shooting list. But i'd think you would be able to tell how to fix it without charging for the sollution.

What does mode G3 send error mean?


The other fax machine is not G3, which is the latest configuration. Maybe a very old fax machine.

Won't send faxes to 817 area code, all others OK


The recipient may have a DSL phone line, or receiving to a fax server that blocks your area code.
