Using the machine as a printer
Using the Brother printer driver
A Printer Driver is software that translates data from the format used by a computer into the format required
by a particular printer, using a printer command language or page description language.
Windows® Printing
The dedicated printer driver for Microsoft® Windows® 98/98SE/Me/2000 Professional/XP and Windows NT®
workstation 4.0 are available for your Brother device. The driver supports our unique compression mode to
enhance printing speed in Windows® applications, and allows you to set various printer settings, including
economy printing mode and custom paper size.
How to print your document
When the machine receives data from your computer, it begins printing by picking up paper from the paper
tray. The paper tray can feed many types of paper and envelopes. (See the User’s Guide for information
about the Paper Tray and Recommended paper.)
1
From your application, select the Print command.
If any other printer drivers are installed on your computer, select Brother FAX-XXXX (USB) Printer
(Where XXXX is your model name). If you are using a USB cable to connect your machine then USB will
be in the printer driver name. Click OK to begin printing.
Note
For Macintosh® users, see Using the Brother printer driver with your Apple® Macintosh® (Mac OS® X) on page
3-2 or Using the Brother printer driver with your Apple® Macintosh® (Mac OS® 9.1 to 9.2) on page 3-4.
2
Your computer sends the data to the machine.
The LCD shows Receiving Data.
3
When the machine finishes printing all the data, the LCD shows the date and time.
Note
You can select the paper size and orientation in your application software.
If your application software does not support your custom paper size, select the next larger paper size.
Then adjust the print area by changing the right and left margins in your application software.

Using the machine as a printer
Printing from the manual feed slot
Note
The machine automatically turns on the Manual Feed mode when you put paper in the manual feed slot.
1
Set the Paper Size, Media Type, Paper Source, and other settings in the printer driver.
Set the Paper Source to Manual.
2
Slide the paper guides to fit the paper size.
3
Using both hands put paper in the manual feed slot until
the front edge of the paper touches the paper feed roller.
Hold the paper in this position until the printer
automatically feeds it in for a short distance, and then let
go of it.
4
Send the print data to the machine.
Note
■ Put the paper into the manual feed slot with the side to be printed face up.
■ Make sure that the paper is straight and in the proper position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper
may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
■ Do not put more than one piece of paper in the manual feed slot at any one time, as it may cause a jam.
5
After the printed page comes out of the machine, put in the next sheet of paper as in Step 3 above.
Repeat for each page that you want to print.
Manual Duplex Printing
The machine prints all the even-numbered pages on one side of the paper first.
Then, the Windows® driver instructs you (with a pop-up message) to reinsert the paper. Before reinserting
the paper, straighten it well, or you may get a paper jam. Very thin or very thick paper is not recommended.

Using the machine as a printer
Simultaneous printing and faxing
Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax in memory. Fax sending will not
be stopped during PC printing.
However, when the machine is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the PC printing operation, and
then continues printing when copying or fax receiving has finished.
