You could try pressing the on hook dial button once you have a dial tone dial the fax number you are trying to reach and then you will be able to hear f there is a fax tone form the other machine or a error message from your operator. If there is a series of beeps with the document in the feeder press send.

The most common cause of not sending is ECM (Error Correction Mode) press menu and within TTI settings make sure this is turned off.

Hope this helps you
Thanks J

Do I have to dial 9-1 before the area code when faxing?

Hello, If you are in an office or corporate environment where the phone system is on a PBX you need to dial 9 usually to get outside the office. If you just have the unit setup at home or to an analog phone jack (not going thru a PBX) then just dial 1 + area code + number. If the number is local then don't use a 1, just the phone number and area code.

I have a lexmark fax/copier X4270 I can receive faxes but can not send them please help

If you can receive a fax but can't send them, then the G3 fax board is working. It is therefore a settings problem in the unit or a telephone company issue. Review your TX settings and confirm that you have not turned off the send option. If that's ok, then move the fax unit to a different telephone wall outlet and try it. Are you sure your telephone agreement allows out of area dialing? If you have only local service, you'll not be able to dial out to anything outside your local area.

I have had this issue as well faxing to any area code in general outside of my own. The only thing I found to work was manual faxing. This comes from the manual.

Dial manually from the handset
1. Load the document into the ADF.
2. Call the recipient on the handset.
3. When the recipient is ready(when you hear the fax sound), press Start Fax on the product control panel.

Canon Faxphone L80 - Alan Silva

To send a fax you do not need to enter anything into your fax. You have to make sure that you connect the telephone line to it's desgnated connector. You dial a number to send as if you are calling form a normal phone. If you ever get a ringing tone press start. You can enter any data trough the data registration after you make sure your fax is functioning properly.
