If you have a voicemail service on the
telephone line that your Brother machine is
connected to, they may conflict with one
another when receiving incoming faxes. If
using this service, we suggest setting the
Brother machine’s Receive Mode to
Manual. (See Choose the Receive Mode
on page 40.)
Distinctive Ring (For some
countries)
FaxAbility is a service offered by Telecom
that allows you to have an additional number
on one phone line, with its own distinctive ring
pattern. This way, when you get an incoming
call, you can identify the number being called
by its ring.
VoIP is a type of phone system that uses an
Internet connection instead of a traditional
telephone line. Your machine may not work
with some VoIP systems. If you have
questions about how to connect your
machine to the VoIP system, contact your
VoIP provider.
Connecting an external
telephone answering device
(TAD)

Distinctive Ring is a telephone-company
service that allows you to have two different

Fax/Tel mode helps you manage incoming calls by recognising whether they are fax or voice
calls and dealing with them in one of the following ways:
 Faxes will be automatically received.
 Voice calls will start the F/T Ring to tell you to pick up the line. The F/T Ring is a fast double-ring
made by your machine.
(See F/T Ring Time (Fax/Tel mode only) on page 42.)
(See Ring Delay on page 42.)

If the call is a fax, then your machine will
receive it. However, if it is a voice call then the
machine will sound the F/T Ring (a fast

Ink Absorber Pad Full The ink absorber box or flushing box
is full. These components are
periodic maintenance items that may
require replacement after a period of
time to ensure optimum performance
from your Brother machine. Because
these components are periodic
maintenance items, the replacement
is not covered under the warranty.
The need to replace these items and
the time period before replacement is
dependent on the number of purges
and flushes required to clean the ink
system. These boxes acquire
amounts of ink during the different
purging and flushing operations. The
number of times a machine purges
and flushes for cleaning varies
depending on different situations. For
example, frequently powering the
machine on and off will cause
numerous cleaning cycles since the
machine automatically cleans itself
upon power up. The use of
non-Brother ink may cause frequent
cleanings because non-Brother ink
could cause poor print quality, which
is resolved by cleaning. The more
cleaning the machine requires, the
faster these boxes will fill up.
The ink absorber box or flushing box
must be replaced. Contact Brother
customer service or your local
Brother Authorised Service Centre to
have your machine serviced.
Other reasons for cleaning are:
1
After a paper jam has been
cleared, the machine
automatically cleans itself before
the next received fax page is
printed.
2
The machine automatically cleans
itself after sitting idle for more than
30 days (infrequent use).
3
The machine automatically cleans
itself after ink cartridges of the
same colour have been replaced
12 times.
NOTE
Repairs resulting from the use of
non-Brother supplies may not be
covered under the stated product
warranty.

Troubleshooting
Printing Received Faxes
Difficulty
 Condensed print
 Horizontal streaks
Suggestions
This is usually caused by a poor telephone connection. Make a copy; if your copy
looks good, you probably had a bad connection with static or interference on the
telephone line. Ask the other party to re-send the fax.
 Top and bottom sentences are
cut off
 Missing lines
Vertical black lines when receiving.
The sender's scanner may be dirty. Ask the sender to make a copy to see if the
problem is with the sending machine. Try receiving from another fax machine.
Left and right margins are cut off or
a single page is printed on two
pages.
If the received faxes are divided and printed on two pages or if you get an extra
blank page, your paper size setting may not be correct for the paper you are using.
(See Set Paper Size and Type on page 23.)
Turn on Auto Reduction.
(See Online User’s Guide.)
Telephone Line or Connections
Difficulty
Suggestions
Dialling does not work.
(No dial tone)
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into
the telephone wall socket and the LINE socket inside the machine.
(Not available in New Zealand)
Change the Tone/Pulse setting. (See Online User’s Guide.)
(Not available in South Africa)
Send a manual fax by pressing Hook and dialling the number. Wait to hear
fax-receiving tones before pressing Fax Start.
(For South Africa)
If an external phone is connected to the machine, send a manual fax by lifting the
handset of the external telephone and dialling the number using the external
telephone. Wait to hear the fax receiving tones before sending fax.
If there is no dial tone, connect a known-working telephone and telephone line
cord to the socket. Then lift the external telephone's handset and listen for a dial
tone. If there is still no dial tone, ask your telephone company to check the line
and/or wall socket.
The machine does not answer
when called.
Make sure the machine is in the correct Receive Mode for your setup.
(See Choose the Receive Mode on page 40.) Check for a dial tone. If possible,
call your machine to hear it answer. If there is still no answer, check the telephone
line cord connection. If there is no ringing when you call your machine, ask your
telephone company to check the line.

Receiving Faxes
Difficulty
Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
(Not available in South Africa)
Make sure your machine has a dial tone by pressing Hook in Fax mode. If you
hear static or interference on your fax line, call your local telephone provider.
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into
the telephone wall socket and the LINE socket inside the machine. If you
subscribe to DSL or VoIP services, contact your service provider for connection
instructions.
If you have problems due to possible interference on the telephone line, you can
change the compatibility setting. (See Telephone Line Interference or VoIP
System on page 77.)
Make sure the machine is in the correct Receive Mode. This is determined by the
external devices and telephone subscriber services you have on the same line as
the Brother machine. (See Choose the Receive Mode on page 40.)
If you have a dedicated fax line and want your Brother machine to automatically
answer all incoming faxes, select Fax Only mode.
If your Brother machine shares a line with an external answering machine, select
External TAD mode. In External TAD mode, your Brother machine will
automatically receive incoming faxes and voice callers will be able to leave a
message on your answering machine.
If your Brother machine shares a line with other telephones and you want it to
automatically answer all incoming faxes, select Fax/Tel mode. In Fax/Tel
mode, your Brother machine will automatically receive faxes and produce a fast
double-ring to alert you to answer voice calls.
If you do not want your Brother machine to automatically answer incoming faxes,
select Manual mode. In Manual mode, you must answer every incoming call and
activate the machine to receive faxes.
Another device or service at your location may be answering the call before your
Brother machine answers. To test this, lower the Ring Delay setting:
 If the Receive Mode is set to Fax Only or Fax/Tel, reduce the Ring Delay
to 1 ring. (See Ring Delay on page 42.)
 If the Receive Mode is set to External TAD, reduce the number of rings
programmed on your answering machine to 2.
 If the Receive Mode is set to Manual, DO NOT adjust the Ring Delay setting.
Have someone send you a test fax:
 If you received the test fax successfully, your machine is operating correctly.
Remember to reset your Ring Delay or answering machine setting back to
your original setting. If receiving problems recur after resetting the Ring Delay,
then a person, device, or subscriber service is answering the fax call before
the machine has a chance to answer.
 If you were not able to receive the fax, then another device or subscriber
service may be interfering with your fax reception or there may be a problem
with your fax line.

Troubleshooting
Receiving Faxes (continued)
Difficulty
Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
If you are using a telephone answering machine (External TAD mode) on the
same line as the Brother machine, make sure your answering machine is set up
correctly.
(continued)
(See Online User’s Guide.)
1
Connect the external TAD correctly. (See Online User’s Guide.)
2
Set your answering machine to answer in one or two rings.
3
Record the outgoing message on your answering machine.
 Record five seconds of silence at the beginning of your outgoing
message.
 Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
 End your outgoing message with your Remote Activation Code for people
sending manual faxes. For example: “After the beep, leave a message or
press l 5 1 (l 9 1 for New Zealand) and Start to send a fax.”
4
Set your answering machine to answer calls.
5
Set your Brother machine’s Receive Mode to External TAD. (See Choose
the Receive Mode on page 40.)
Make sure your Brother machine’s Fax Detect feature is turned On. Fax Detect is
a feature that allows you to receive a fax even if you have answered the call on an
external or extension telephone.
(See Online User’s Guide.)
If you often get transmission errors due to possible interference on the telephone
line, try changing the Compatibility setting to Basic(for VoIP).
(See Telephone Line Interference or VoIP System on page 77.)

Transmission Verification Report
says RESULT:ERROR.
There is probably temporary noise or static on the line. Try sending the fax again.
If you send a PC FAX message and get RESULT:ERROR on the Transmission
Verification Report, your machine may be out of memory.
To gain extra memory, you can turn off Memory Receive, print fax messages from
the machine’s memory or cancel a Delayed Fax or Polling Job. (See Online User’s
Guide.)
If the problem continues, ask the telephone company to check your telephone line.
If you often get transmission errors due to possible interference on the telephone
line, try changing the machine's Compatibility setting to Basic(for VoIP).
(See Telephone Line Interference or VoIP System on page 77.)
(For South Africa)
If you connect your machine to PBX or ISDN, set the menu setting of Telephone
Line Type to your telephone line type. (See Online User’s Guide.)
Vertical black lines when sending.
Black vertical lines on faxes you send are typically caused by dirt or correction fluid
on the glass strip. Clean the glass strip. (See Cleaning the scanner glass
on page 43.)
Handling Incoming Calls
Difficulty
Suggestions
The machine “hears” a voice as a
CNG Tone.
If Fax Detect is set to On, your machine is more sensitive to sounds. It may
mistakenly interpret certain voices or music on the line as a fax machine calling
and respond with fax-receiving tones. Deactivate the machine by pressing
.
Try avoiding this problem by turning Fax Detect to Off.
(See Online User’s Guide.)
Sending a fax call to the machine.
If you answered on an extension or external telephone, press your Remote
Activation Code (the factory default is l 5 1 (l 9 1 for New Zealand)). If you
answered on an external telephone, press Fax Start, and then press Receive
to receive the fax. When your machine answers, hang up.
Custom features on a single line.
If you have Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, Caller ID, Voice Mail, an
answering machine, an alarm system or other custom feature on a single
telephone line with your machine, it may create a problem sending or receiving
faxes.
For example: If you subscribe to Call Waiting or another custom service and its
signal comes through the line while your machine is sending or receiving a fax, the
signal can temporarily interrupt the fax. Brother's ECM (Error Correction Mode)
feature should help overcome this problem. This condition is related to the
telephone system industry and is common to all devices that send and receive
information on a single, shared line with custom features. If avoiding a slight
interruption is crucial to your business, we recommend using a separate
telephone line with no custom features.

Troubleshooting
Dial Tone detection
B
When sending a fax, by default your machine
will wait for a fixed amount of time before it
starts to dial the number. By changing the
Dial Tone setting to Detection, you can
make your machine dial as soon as it detects
a dial tone. This setting can save a small
amount of time when sending a fax to many
different numbers. If you change the setting
and start having problems when dialling, you
should change it back to the No Detection
setting.

amount of ink to fill the ink delivery tubes for high quality printouts. This
process will only happen once. After this process is complete the cartridges
provided with your machine will have a lower yield than regular capacity
cartridges (65%). With all following ink cartridges you can print the specified
number of pages.
