Re: Fax

An access code is normally set up by a person or company to prevent long distance faxes or phone calls by unauthorized users. The access code is a series of numbers to access long distance service. Check with your employer for the long distance code or check with you carrier to make sure that this service has not been put on your line by mistake.

How to send a fax

  1. Plug the phone line into the jack marked LINE.
  2. Insert the document top-first, with the printed side away from you, into the top slot right behind the operator panel.
  3. Enter the phone number, just as you would to dial any phone. If it's long distance, include 1 and the area code. If you're in an office where you need to dial 9 first, do that.
  4. Press Start.
The fax will do everything else.

Need access code to fax long distance, just started happening.

That would usually be your telephone service provider not the fax machine, if it is a business line, the permissions may have been changed. Check with your business communication administrator, or your local phone service provider.

Hope this is of some help.

Faxing with a long distance code

after you dial the number you hit the pause button (usually 1-2 times) then dial additional numbers.

basically everytime you need the machine to wait for something to happen you need to hit pause

example: i have to dial five digit access code for my fax for LD calls it would be dialed on fax like this

1-234-567-8901 pause pause 12345 start
