Hello,

I have an HP 1522MFP and when we try and fax to somewhere it says you must dial 1 and the area code to fax long distance, this is not a long distance fax, we can recieve faxes fine its just the sending that is not working.

Thanks,

Where are you receiving that message?  On the fax console?

On the fax console when I try to send a fax out, the voice comes on and says you must dial 1 and the area code, we have tried the area code even though it is a local fax just to be sure; and it still does not go through.

That really sounds more like a phone system or phone line issue than a problem with the fax itself.

If you plug a phone into the same phone line and dial out, do you get the same message?

I have not tried that yet, but I have sent a new phone line down to the branch to see if it makes a difference, I'll let you know the outcome.

hdhondt - Although I'm fairly certain this is a phone company or phone configuration issue, we can't really tell that for certain without the poster's input.  If they have not responded within a few days, I'd recommend deletion of the question.
thank you.
