1 - 7 INTRODUCTION
About paper
The print quality can be affected by the type of paper you use in the
machine.
To get the best print quality for the settings you’ve chosen, always
set the Paper Type to match the type of paper you load.
You can use plain paper, inkjet paper (coated paper), glossy paper,
transparencies and envelopes.
We recommend testing various paper types before purchasing large
quantities.
For best results, use the recommended paper.
■ When you print on inkjet paper (coated paper),
transparencies and glossy paper, be sure to select the
proper media in the “Basic” tab of the printer driver or in the
Paper Type setting of the menu.
■ When you print on Brother glossy paper, load the instruction
sheet included with the glossy paper in the paper tray first,
and then place the glossy paper on the instruction sheet.
■ When you use transparencies or glossy paper, remove each
sheet immediately to prevent smudging or paper jams.
■ Avoid touching the printed surface of the paper immediately
after printing. The surface may not be completely dry and
may stain your fingers.
Recommended Paper
To get the best print quality, we suggest using Brother paper.
(See table below.)
If Brother paper is not available in your country, we recommend
testing various papers before purchasing large quantities.
We recommend using “3M Transparency Film” when you print on
transparencies.

Handling and using special paper
■ Store paper in its original packaging, and keep it sealed. Keep the
paper flat and away from moisture, direct sunlight and heat.
■ The coated side of glossy paper is shiny. Avoid touching the
shiny (coated) side. Load glossy paper with the shiny side facing
down.
■ Avoid touching either side of transparencies because they
absorb water and perspiration easily, and this may cause
decreased output quality. Transparencies designed for laser
printers/copiers may stain your next document. Use only
transparencies recommended for inkjet printing.
Do not use paper:
■ that is damaged, curled, wrinkled, or irregularly shaped
2 mm or
longer
2 mm or

Introduction
Even if your machine is not connected to your computer, you can
print photos directly from your digital camera media. Your Brother
machine includes five media drives (slots) for use with popular digital
camera media: CompactFlash®, SmartMedia®, Memory Stick®,
Memory Stick Pro™, SecureDigital™ (SD Card), MultiMediaCard™
and xD-Picture Card™.

The PhotoCapture Center™ feature lets you print digital photos from
your digital camera at high resolution to get photo quality printing.
■ miniSD™ can be used with miniSD™ adapter.
■ Memory Stick Duo™ can be used with Memory Stick Duo™
adapter.
■ Memory Stick Pro Duo™ can be used with Memory Stick Pro
Duo™ adapter.
■ Adapters are not included with the machine. Contact a third

PhotoCapture Center™ requirements
Your machine is designed to be compatible with modern digital
camera image files and media cards; however, please read the
points below to avoid errors:
■ The DPOF file on the media card must be in a valid format.
(See DPOF printing on page 3-8.)
■ The image file extension must be .JPG (Other image file
extensions .JPEG, .TIF, .GIF and so on will not be recognized).
■ Walk-up PhotoCapture Center™ printing must be performed
separately from PhotoCapture Center™ operations using the PC.
(Simultaneous operation is not available.)
■ IBM Microdrive™ is not compatible with the machine.
■ The machine can read up to 999 files in a media card.
■ Use only Smart media cards with a 3.3v voltage rating.
■ CompactFlash® Type II is not supported.
■ xD-Picture Card™ Type M (Large Capacity) is supported.
When printing the INDEX or IMAGE, the PhotoCapture Center™
will print all the valid images, even if one or more images have
been corrupted. A portion of the corrupted image may be
printed.
Your machine is designed to read media cards that have been
formatted by a digital camera.
When a digital camera formats a media card it creates a special
folder into which it copies image data. If you need to modify the
image data stored on a media card with your PC, we
recommend that you do not modify the folder structure created
by the digital camera. When saving new or modified image files
to the media card we also recommend you use the same folder
your digital camera uses. If the data is not saved to the same
folder the machine may not be able to read the file or print the
image.

How to improve print quality
Cleaning the print head
To ensure good print quality, the machine will regularly clean the
print head. You can start the cleaning process manually if needed.
Clean the print head and ink cartridges if you get a horizontal line in
the text or graphics on your printed pages. You can clean Black only
or three colours at a time (Cyan/Yellow/Magenta), or all four colours
at once.
Cleaning the print head consumes ink. Cleaning too often uses ink
unnecessarily.
Caution
Do NOT touch the print head. Touching the print head may cause

Packing and shipping the machine
Whenever you transport the machine, use the packing materials that
came with your machine. If you do not pack the machine properly,
you could void your warranty.
Caution
It is important to allow the machine to ‘park’ the print head after a
print job. Listen carefully to the machine before disconnecting it from
the power source to ensure that all mechanical noise has stopped.
Not allowing the machine to complete this parking process may lead
to print problems and possible damage to the print head.

When attaching the yellow protective parts,
make sure it clips into place as shown in the diagram.
Caution
If you are not able to find the yellow protective parts, do NOT remove
the ink cartridges before shipping. It is essential that the machine be
shipped with the yellow protective parts or the ink cartridges in
position. Shipping without them will cause damage to your machine
and may void your warranty.

Replacing the ink cartridges
Your machine is equipped with an ink dot counter. The ink dot
counter automatically monitors the level of ink in each of the four
cartridges. When the machine detects an ink cartridge is running out
of ink, the machine will notify you with a message on the LCD.
The LCD will inform you which ink cartridge is low or needs replacing.
Be sure to follow the LCD prompts to replace the ink cartridges in the
correct order.
Even though the machine informs you that an ink cartridge is empty,
there will be a small amount of ink remaining in the ink cartridge. It is
necessary to keep some ink in the ink cartridge to prevent air from
drying out and damaging the print head assembly.
1 Lift the scanner cover from the right-hand side of the machine
until it locks securely into the open position.
If one or more ink cartridges are empty, for example Black, the
LCD shows Ink Empty Black and Replace Ink.
2 Pull the ink cartridge hook toward you and remove the ink
cartridge for the colour shown on the LCD.

a brand new one. Example: Did You Change Black? ▲ Yes
▼ No. For each new cartridge you installed, press
(Yes) to
automatically reset the ink dot counter for that colour. If the ink
cartridge you installed is not a brand new one, please be sure to

If you wait until Ink Empty message is displayed on the LCD,
the machine will automatically reset the ink dot counter.
If the Install message is on the display after you have
installed ink cartridges, check that the ink cartridges are

Caution
■ Do not remove ink cartridges if you do not need to replace them.
If you do so, it may reduce the ink quantity and the machine will
not know the quantity of ink left in the cartridge.
■ Do not touch the cartridge insertion slots. If you do so, the ink
may stain your skin.
■ If ink stains your skin or clothing, wash with soap or detergent
immediately.
■ If you install an ink cartridge in the wrong colour position, you
must clean the print head several times before you start printing
(after correcting the cartridge installation) because the colours
were mixed.
■ Once you open an ink cartridge, install it in the machine and use
it up within six months of installation. Use unopened ink
cartridges by the expiration date written on the cartridge
package.
■ Do not dismantle or tamper with the ink cartridge, this can cause
the ink to leak out of the cartridge.
■ Brother multifunction machines are designed to work with ink of
a particular specification and will work to a level of optimum
performance when used with genuine Brother branded ink
cartridges. Brother cannot guarantee this optimum performance
if ink or ink cartridges of other specifications are used. Brother
does not therefore recommend the use of cartridges other than
genuine Brother branded cartridges or the refilling of empty
cartridges with this machine or the refilling of empty cartridges
with ink from other sources. If damage is caused to the print head
or other parts of this machine as a result of using in compatible
products with this machine, any repairs required as a result may
not be covered by the warranty.

Consumable items
Ink
The machine uses individual Black, Yellow, Cyan
and Magenta ink cartridges that are separate from
the print head assembly.
Service Life of Ink
Cartridge
Black - Approximately 500 pages at 5% coverage
Yellow, Cyan and Magenta - Approximately 400
pages at 5% coverage
• The above figures assume continuous printing at
a resolution of 600 x 600 dpi in normal mode after
installing new ink cartridge.
• The number of pages a cartridge will print may
change depending on how often you use the
machine and how many pages you print with
each use.
• The machine will automatically and periodically
clean the print head assembly, a process that
uses a small amount of ink.
• The first time you install a set of ink cartridges the
machine will use a small amount of ink to fill and
prime the ink delivery tubes. This process will
only happen once.
• When the machine identifies a cartridge as empty
there may be a small amount of ink left in it. This
is necessary to prevent air from drying out and
damaging the print head assembly.
