I can fax to local numbers but not to long distance numbers. Phone company has no clue.

Your problem is how you have set up your long distance carrier. You may not be able to use your fax if you must first go through a phone card system. However, sometimes you can use enough pauses in your fax dialing to get through it. If your long distance carrier is your local phone company, they SHOULD be able to tell you how to dial.

Fax problem. Trying to send international fax to France. I can hear the fax number being dialed ok, but no connection after 12 rings. Calling fax number from phone hooked up through mp530 connects ok! ...

Hi ...

It might be possible that the line is loose or the long distance calling code is incorrect. Follow the below instructions which might resolve the problem.

Sending Using a Long Distance Calling Code The telephone company or PBX system may use long distance calling codes on a phone line as a means to manage long distance calls. This service may extend to a fax phone line and for local phone calls as well. To use a calling code for faxing, enter a pause (or pauses, as necessary) in the dialing sequence to allow time for the phone system to distinguish between the phone number and the calling code. For example, if the calling code has to be entered after the phone number, press <Redial/Pause> after the long distance number and then enter the calling code.
Here is an example of a couple of variations that may be used by the phone company / PBX system. (For details on time sequence between the long distance number and when you must enter the calling code, please contact your phone company or telecommunications specialist.)
Long distance number: 212.555.1212
Calling code: 123456
Scenario One: 12125551212p123456 Scenario Two: 123456p12125551212

Note: The above scenarios include a pause (p) in between the dialing sequence. This pause may be necessary to allow the phone system to detect each set of dialing sequences. The pause length can be adjusted from one to nine seconds, the default is two seconds.

Tips to help you send a fax using a calling code.
  1. To send a fax using a calling code, it may be necessary to add a pause(s) before the next string of dialing digits. The above example shows how a calling code is used to dial a long distance fax number. To provide time before the calling code number is dialed and avoid misdialing, a pause should be added.

    Example: 12125551212p123456

    The number of pauses will depend on the phone / PBX system.

    It is suggested to confirm if the time before the next set of digits is dialed will always be constant. This way you can always use the same number of pauses for that dialing sequence. If needed, you can also change the pause [Pause time] length from its default 2 seconds.

  2. Connect a telephone to the fax machine.
    1. Connect a line cord from the telephone wall jack to the [L] jack (or item <1>) on the fax machine.

    2. Connect a line cord from the extension telephone port on the fax machine (top jack (or item <2>)) to an external telephone.


  3. To send a fax using a calling code, it is recommended to dial using the attached telephone.
    1. Press the <FAX> button on the operator panel.
    2. Insert the documents face-up on the ADF.

    3. Pick up the handset of the attached telephone and confirm you hear a dial tone.
    4. Dial the fax destination number on the attached telephone.
    5. When you are prompted to enter your calling code, dial it on the attached phone.
    6. When you hear the remote fax machine's high-pitched receive tones, press <Color> to send a color fax or <Black> to send a black and white fax. The audio signal heard from the handset will be cut off.
    7. Hang up the handset.
    8. When the transaction is complete, the fax machine will return to standby mode.

Phone dialup-local phone service

You do not need a dial-up internet connection to use fax. All you need is a working phone line. Beyond that it works like a phone call (think of it as one fax machine calling another fax machine), so if your plan allows you to call locally only, then you can only fax locally as well. If you try to fax long distance, it may or may not work based on whether you can make a long distance phone call. Also, you will be charged for long distance calls if you fax long distance. These fees have nothing to do with Lexmark or whatever brand your fax machine is, it is the phone company that will charge you.

Using a calling card for a long distance fax

It will surely help if you are using a calling card that has a pinless dialing feature where you don't need to dial your pin. I use calling card and it has that feature and sending a fax through regular fax machine is easier than having to dial your pin midpoint.

Faxing Long Distance


To my knowledge, if the unit can send a fax message to another fax machine then it is safe to assume that there is nothing wrong with the fax.

Perhaps your problem may be more related to the type of phone subscription that you may have. Some phone providers have subscription for local calls only and restricted long distance. Alternately, there are some phones that would need a series of numbers to be pre-dialed before long distance access is granted.

Pls check with your local phone company. Additionally, you can try by calling long distance using your regular phone and see if it works. If it does, then long distance restrictions has been imposed/enabled in your Canon 3300. The procedures are better explained in the users manual. A copy of the user's manual for Mac users is here, all other downloads including those for Windows, is here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Kyocera mita long distance faxing

I hate to point out the obvious, but make sure your phone line has long distance service, then make sure you are dialing 1 before the long distance number. You didn't mention if you had to dial 9 to get out. If you do, you may have to enter a pause between the 9 and the 1. What model Kyocera Mita do you have? The fax kits vary by model, and I can look up any issues with your particular fax kit given the extra info. Thanks.
