I believe the "Dialing Prefix" refers to a number that you put in that will allow you to access an outside line or get a dial tone. So in an office environment e.g if you dial '99' before you can dial a number. You can probably leave it blank in an home setup.

Anyway here's a link to the user guide:

Let me know if you still have problems.

You have to go into the settings on the fax machine. There will be an option for a prefix number. Someone put a 9 in there. Having the 9 in there will make it dial a 9 then the number you are trying to faxt too. Remove the 9.

How can i download users' manual. I need to get the automatic "9" out of the outgoing fax number.


Hello,

Inserting a dial prefix A dial prefix is a number or group of numbers that are automatically added to the beginning of every fax number you enter at the control panel or from the software. The maximum number of characters for a dial prefix is 50.
The default setting is Off . You might want to turn this setting on and enter a prefix if, for example, you have to dial a number such as 9 to get a telephone line outside of your company telephone system. While this setting is activated, you can dial a fax number without the dial prefix by using manual dial. For instructions, see Using manual dial .
To set the dial prefix
  1. On the all-in-one control panel, press Menu .
  2. Use the < or the > button to select Fax setup , and then press c00597634.gif .
  3. Press the > button once to select Fax Send setup , and then press c00597634.gif .
  4. Use the < or the > button to select Dial Prefix , and then press c00597634.gif .
  5. Use the < or the > button to select On or Off , and then press c00597634.gif .
  6. If you selected On , use the alphanumeric buttons to enter the prefix, and then press c00597634.gif . You can use numbers, pauses, and dialing symbols.

Hi zoaj,

More then likely you have the fax set up to USE A DIALING PREFIX.

Therefore it is automatically doing this, regardless of what you input.

Follow the proceedure below ( which comes directly from the users manual for your printer type ) to change this. Delete the " USE A DIALING PREFIX " information.

once that is done, it will no longer automatically add the prefix for you. :)

I have BOLDED the relevant information below that pertains to this.

Please take a moment to evaluate my solution. Your appropriate rating of my solution would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Dialling out!


Hi make sure that you don't need a prefix number i.e. a 9 to dial a outside line. The best test is to plug a normal phone into the socket and call someone from that line. If the same problem is still there then it is a line problem if not check within the machine menu that under TTI or call settings that there is no prefix number installed. If there is set the machine so it doesn't need a prefix.

I hope this helps you
Thanks J
