warrants that the Machine and the accompanying

from defects in materials and workmanship, when
used under normal conditions.
•This warranty applies only to products

(and does not include shipping outside the
United States).

What to do if you think your Product is
eligible for warranty service:
Report your issue to either our Customer
Service Hotline at 1-800-284-4329 or a Brother

applicable warranty period. Supply Brother
or the Brother Authorized Service Center with
a copy of your dated bill of sale showing that
this Product was purchased within the U.S. For
the name of local Brother Authorized Service
Center(s), call 1-800-521-2846.
What Brother will ask you to do:
After contacting Brother or a Brother
Authorized Service Center, you may be
required to deliver (by hand if you prefer) or

together with a photocopy of your bill of sale.
You are responsible for the cost of
shipping, packing product, and insurance
(if you desire). You are also responsible for
loss or damage to this Product in shipping.
What Brother will do:
If the problem reported concerning your
Machine and/or accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items is covered by this
warranty and if you first reported the problem
to Brother or an Authorized Service Center
within the applicable warranty period, Brother
or its Authorized Service Center will repair or
replace the Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items at no
charge to you for parts or labor. The decision
as to whether to repair or replace the Machine
and/or accompanying Consumable and
Accessory Items is made by Brother in its sole
discretion. Brother reserves the right to supply
a refurbished or remanufactured replacement
Machine and/or accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items and use refurbished
parts provided such replacement products
Brother® One Year Limited Warranty and Replacement Service
(USA only)
conform to the manufacturer's specifications
for new product/parts. The repaired or
replacement Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items will be
returned to you freight prepaid or made
available for you to pick up at a conveniently
located Authorized Service Center.
If the Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items are not
covered by this warranty (either stage), you will
be charged for shipping the Machine and/or
accompanying Consumable and Accessory
Items back to you.
The foregoing are your sole (i.e., only) and
exclusive remedies under this warranty.
What happens when Brother elects to
replace your Machine:
When a replacement Machine is authorized by
Brother, and you have delivered the Machine
to an Authorized Service Center, the
Authorized Service Center will provide you with
a replacement Machine after receiving one
from Brother. If you are dealing directly with
Brother, Brother will send to you a replacement
Machine with the understanding that you will,
after receipt of the replacement Machine,
supply the required proof of purchase
information, together with the Machine that
Brother agreed to replace. You are then
expected to pack the Machine that Brother
agreed to replace in the package from the
replacement Machine and return it to Brother
using the pre-paid freight bill supplied by
Brother in accordance with the instructions
provided by Brother. Since you will be in
possession of two machines, Brother will
require that you provide a valid major credit
card number. Brother will issue a hold against
the credit card account number that you
provide until Brother receives your original
Product and determines that your original
Product is entitled to warranty coverage. Your
credit card will be charged up to the cost of a
new Product only if: (i) you do not return your
original Product to Brother within five (5)
business days; (ii) the problems with your
original Product are not covered by the limited
warranty; (iii) the proper packaging instructions
are not followed and has caused damage to
the product; or (iv) the warranty period on your
original Product has expired or has not been
sufficiently validated with a copy of the proof of
purchase (bill of sale). The replacement
Machine you receive (even if refurbished or
remanufactured) will be covered by the
balance of the limited warranty period
remaining on the original Product, plus an
additional thirty (30) days. You will keep the
replacement Machine that is sent to you and
your original Machine shall become the
property of Brother. Retain your original
Accessory Items and a copy of the return
freight bill, signed by the courier.
Limitations:
Brother is not responsible for damage to or
loss of any equipment, media, programs or
data related to the use of this Product. Except
for that repair or replacement as described
above, Brother shall not be liable for any direct,
indirect, incidental or consequential damages
or specific relief. Because some states do not
allow the exclusion or limitation of
consequential or incidental damages, the
above limitation may not apply to you.
THIS WARRANTY IS GIVEN IN LIEU OF ALL
OTHER WARRANTIES, WRITTEN OR ORAL,
WHETHER EXPRESSED BY AFFIRMATION,
PROMISE, DESCRIPTION, DRAWING,
MODEL OR SAMPLE. ANY AND ALL
WARRANTIES OTHER THAN THIS ONE,
WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE HEREBY
DISCLAIMED.
•This Limited Warranty is the only warranty
that Brother is giving for this Product. It is the
final expression and the exclusive and only
statement of Brother's obligations to you. It
replaces all other agreements and
understandings that you may have with
Brother or its representatives.
•This warranty gives you certain rights and you
may also have other rights that may vary from
state to state.

obligation to you) may not be changed in any
way unless you and Brother sign the same
piece of paper in which we (1) refer to this
Product and your bill of sale date, (2) describe
the change to this warranty and (3) agree to
make that change.
Important: We recommend that you keep all
original packing materials, in the event that you

MFC LIMITED WARRANTY (USA)
v
BROTHER MULTIFUNCTION CENTER/FACSIMILE MACHINE
LIMITED WARRANTY
(Canada only)
Pursuant to this limited warranty of 1 year from the date of purchase for labour and parts,
Brother International Corporation (Canada) Ltd. (“Brother”), or its Authorized Service
Centers, will repair this MFC/Facsimile machine free of charge if defective in material or
workmanship. This Limited Warranty does not include cleaning, consumables
(including, without limitation, print cartridges, print head, toner and drum) or damage
caused by accident, neglect, misuse or improper installation or operation, any damage
caused from service, maintenance, modifications, or tampering by anyone other than a
Brother Authorized Service Representative, or from the use of supplies or consumable
items that are non-Brother products. Operation of the MFC/Facsimile machine in excess
of the specifications or with the Serial Number or Rating Label removed shall be deemed
abuse and all repairs thereafter shall be the sole liability of the end-user/purchaser. In
order to obtain warranty service, the MFC/Facsimile machine must be delivered or
shipped freight prepaid by the end user/purchaser to a “Brother” Authorized Service
Center, together with your Proof of Purchase in the form of a Sales Receipt.
For laser products: Failure to remove the Toner Cartridge (and Toner Drum Unit on
applicable models) during shipping will cause severe damage to the MFC/Facsimile and
will VOID the Warranty. (Refer to your Operation Manual for proper packaging.)
For ink-jet products: Do not remove the ink cartridges during shipping. Damage to your
print head resulting from packing without the ink cartridges will VOID your warranty.
(Refer to your Operation Manual for proper packaging.)
BROTHER DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED
INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, EXCEPT TO
THE EXTENT THAT ANY WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY LAW CANNOT BE VALIDLY
WAIVED.
No oral or written information, advice or representation provided by Brother, its
Authorized Service Centers, Distributors, Dealers, Agents or employees, shall create
another warranty or modify this warranty. This warranty states Brother’s entire liability
and your exclusive remedy against Brother for any failure of the MFC/Facsimile machine
to operate properly.
Neither Brother nor anyone else involved in the development, production, or delivery of
this MFC/Facsimile machine shall be liable for any indirect, incidental, special,
consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages, including lost profits, arising from the
use of or inability to use the product, even if advised by the end user/purchaser of the
possibility of such damages. Since some Provinces do not allow the above limitation of
liability, such limitation may not apply to you.
This Limited Warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights
which vary from Providence to Providence.
Warranty Service is available at Brother Authorized Service Centers throughout
Canada. For Technical Support or for the name and location of your nearest Authorized
Service Center call 1-877-BROTHER. Within Montreal, please call (514) 685-6464.

INTRODUCTION 1 - 5
About fax machines
If you’ve never used an MFC before, it might seem a little mysterious.
But you’ll soon recognize the unusual fax tones on your phone line,
and be able to send and receive faxes easily.
Custom features
Do you have Voice Mail on the phone line?
If you have Voice Mail on the phone line where you will install your
new MFC, there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail and the MFC
may conflict with each other while receiving incoming calls.
Why should there be problems?
Since both the MFC and Voice Mail will pick up the call, after the
number of rings you have set, each of them has the ability to keep
the other from receiving calls.
For example, if your Voice Mail is set to answer after two rings and
your MFC is set to answer after four, your Voice Mail will stop your
MFC from receiving faxes.
If you set Voice Mail and the Brother MFC to answer at the same
number of rings, there is no way of knowing which one will answer
first. It is important to remember that neither Voice Mail nor the MFC
can pass the call back to the other after the call has been answered.
How can you avoid possible problems?
A very good way to avoid problems like the one mentioned, is to get
a second phone number on your present phone line.
Many people with Voice Mail choose this service, which is called
“Distinctive Ring”, and they are very satisfied with it. For details about
this type of custom service, please see Distinctive Ring on page 5-9.
Another way to avoid possible problems is to replace your Voice Mail
with an answering machine. Your Brother MFC is designed to work
with an answering machine or TAD (telephone answering device).
(See Connecting an External Telephone Answering Device (TAD) on
page 1-8.)
1 - 6 INTRODUCTION
Fax tones and handshake
When someone is sending a fax, the MFC sends fax calling tones (CNG
tones). These are quiet, intermittent beeps every 4-seconds. You’ll hear
them after you dial and press Fax Start, and they will continue for about
60 seconds after dialing. During that time, the sending machine must
begin the “handshake” with the receiving machine.
Each time you use automatic procedures to send a fax, you are
sending CNG tones over the phone line. You’ll soon learn to listen for
these quiet beeps each time you answer a phone on your fax line, so
you will know if you are receiving a fax message.
The receiving fax responds with fax receiving tones, which are loud,
chirping sounds. A receiving fax chirps for about 40 seconds over the
phone line, and the LCD shows RECEIVING.
If your MFC is set to the FAX mode, it will answer every call
automatically with fax receiving tones. If the other person hangs up,
your MFC will continue to send the “chirps” for about 40 seconds,
and the LCD continues to show RECEIVING. To cancel the receiving
mode. Press Stop/Exit.
The fax ’handshake’ is the time in which the sending machine’s CNG
tones and the receiving machines “chirps” overlap. This must be for
at least 2 to 4 seconds, so the machines can understand how each
is sending and receiving the fax. The handshake cannot begin until
the call is answered, and the CNG tones only last for about 60
seconds after the number is dialed. So it is important for the receiving
machine to answer the call in as few rings as possible.
When you have an external Telephone Answering Device (TAD)
on your fax line, your TAD will decide the number of rings before
the call is answered.
Pay special attention to the directions for connecting a TAD in
this chapter. (See Connecting an External Telephone
Answering Device (TAD) on page 1-8.)
INTRODUCTION 1 - 7
ECM (Error Correction Mode)
The Error Correction Mode (ECM) is a way for the MFC to check a
fax transmission while it is in progress. ECM transmissions are only
possible between machines that both have this feature. If they do,
you may send and receive fax messages that are continuously being
checked by the machine.
Your MFC must have enough memory for this feature to work.
Connecting the MFC
Connecting an External Telephone
Although your MFC does not have a handset, you can connect a separate
telephone (or telephone answering device) directly to your MFC.
Connect the modular plug on the telephone’s line cord to the jack
labeled EXT. on the left side of the MFC.
Whenever this phone (or TAD) is in use, the LCD shows TELEPHONE.
Connecting an External Telephone Answering
Device (TAD)
Sequence
You may choose to connect an answering system. However, when you
have an external TAD on the same telephone line as the MFC, the
TAD answers all calls and the MFC “listens” for fax calling (CNG) tones.
If it hears them, the MFC takes over the call and receives the fax. If it
doesn’t hear CNG tones, the MFC lets the TAD continue playing your
outgoing message so your caller can leave you a voice message.
The TAD must answer within five rings (the recommended setting is
two rings). The MFC cannot hear CNG tones until the TAD has
answered the call, and with five rings there are only 8 to 10 seconds
of CNG tones left for the fax “handshake”. Make sure you carefully
follow the instructions in this manual for recording your outgoing
message. We do not recommend using the toll saver feature on your
external answering machine if it exceeds five rings.
1 - 8 INTRODUCTION
If you do not receive all your faxes, you must reset the setting
on your external TAD to four rings.
If You Subscribe to your Telephone Company’s Distinctive Ring
Service:
You may connect an external TAD to a separate wall jack only
if you subscribe to your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring
service, have registered the distinctive ring pattern on your
MFC, use that number as a fax number and set your machine’s
Receive mode to MANUAL. The recommended setting is three
or four rings on the external TAD when you have the telephone
company’s Distinctive Ring Service.
If You Do Not Subscribe to Distinctive Ring Service:
You must plug your TAD into the EXT. jack of your MFC. If your
TAD is plugged into a wall jack, both your machine and the TAD
will try to control the phone line. (See illustration below.)
Do not connect a TAD elsewhere on the same phone line
(unless you have the Distinctive Ring service).
INTRODUCTION 1 - 9
Connections
The external TAD must be plugged into the back side of the MFC,
into the jack labeled EXT. Your MFC cannot work properly if you plug
the TAD into a wall jack (unless you are using Distinctive Ring).
1 Plug the telephone line cord from the wall jack into the back side
of the MFC, in the jack labeled LINE.
2 Plug the telephone line cord from your external TAD into the
back side of the MFC, in the jack labeled EXT. (Make sure this
cord is connected to the TAD at the TAD’s telephone line jack,
and not its telephone set jack.)
3 Set your external TAD to four rings or less. (The MFC’s Ring
Delay setting does not apply.)
4 Record the outgoing message on your external TAD.
5 Set the TAD to answer calls.
6 Set the Receive Mode to EXTERNAL TAD.
(See Choosing the Receive Mode on page 5-1.)
Recording Outgoing Message (OGM)
Timing is important in recording this message. The message sets up
the ways to handle both manual and automatic fax reception.
1 Record 5 seconds of silence at the beginning of your message.
(This allows your MFC time to listen for the fax CNG tones of
automatic transmissions before they stop.)
2 Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
3 End your 20-second message by giving your Fax Receive Code
for people sending manual faxes. For example:
“After the beep, leave a message or send a fax by pressing
51 and Start.”
We recommend beginning your OGM with an initial 5-second
silence because the MFC cannot hear fax tones over a resonant
or loud voice. You may try omitting this pause, but if your MFC has
trouble receiving, then you must rerecord the OGM to include it.
1 - 10 INTRODUCTION
Special Line Considerations
Roll Over Phone Lines
A roll over phone system is a group of two or more separate telephone lines
that pass incoming calls to each other if they are busy. The calls are usually
passed down or “rolled over” to the next available phone line in a preset order.
Your MFC can work in a roll over system as long as it is the last
number in the sequence, so the call cannot roll away. Do not put the
MFC on any of the other numbers; when the other lines are busy and
a second fax call is received, the fax call would be transferred to a
line that does not have a fax machine. Your MFC will work best on
a dedicated line.
Two-Line Phone System
A two-line phone system is nothing more than two separate phone numbers
on the same wall outlet. The two phone numbers can be on separate jacks
(RJ11) or combined into one jack (RJ14). Your MFC must be plugged into an
RJ11 jack. RJ11 and RJ14 jacks may be equal in size and appearance and
both may contain four wires (black, red, green, yellow). To test the type of jack,
plug in a two-line phone and see if it can access both lines. If it can, you must
separate the line for your MFC. (See Easy Receive on page 5-4.)
Converting Telephone Wall Outlets
There are three ways to convert to an RJ11 jack. The first two ways may
require assistance from the telephone company. You can change the wall
outlets from one RJ14 jack to two RJ11 jacks. Or, you can have an RJ11
wall outlet installed and slave or jump one of the phone numbers to it.
The third way is the easiest: Buy a triplex adapter. You can plug a
triplex adapter into an RJ14 outlet. It separates the wires into two
separate RJ11 jacks (Line 1, Line 2) and a third RJ14 jack (Lines 1
and 2). If your MFC is on Line 1, plug the MFC into L1 of the triplex
adapter. If your MFC is on Line 2, plug it into L2 of the triple adapter.

INTRODUCTION 1 - 11
Installing MFC, External Two-Line TAD and Two-Line
Telephone
When you are installing an external two-line telephone answering
device (TAD) and a two-line telephone, your MFC must be isolated
on one line at both the wall jack and at the TAD. The most common
connection is to put the MFC on Line 2, which is explained in the
following steps. The back of the two-line TAD must have two
telephone jacks: one labeled L1 or L1/L2, and the other labeled L2.
You will need at least three telephone line cords, the one that came
with your MFC and two for your external two-line TAD. You will need
a fourth line cord if you add a two-line telephone.
1 Place the two-line TAD and the two-line telephone next to your
MFC.
2 Plug one end of the telephone line cord for your MFC into the L2
jack of the triplex adapter. Plug the other end into the LINE jack
on the left side of the MFC.
3 Plug one end of the first telephone line cord for your TAD into
the L1 jack of the triplex adapter. Plug the other end into the L1
or L1/L2 jack of the two-line TAD.
4 Plug one end of the second telephone line cord for your TAD
into the L2 jack of the two-line TAD. Plug the other end into the
EXT. jack on the left side of the MFC.

External Two Line TAD
Tow Line Phone
Fax Machine
You can keep two-line telephones on other wall outlets as always.
There are two ways to add a two-line telephone to the MFC’s wall
outlet. You can plug the telephone line cord from the two-line
telephone into the L1+L2 jack of the triplex adapter. Or, you can plug
the two-line telephone into the TEL jack of the two-line TAD.
1 - 12 INTRODUCTION
Multi-Line Connections (PBX)
Most offices use a central telephone system. While it is often
relatively simple to connect the machine to a key system or a PBX
(Private Branch Exchange), we suggest that you contact the
company that installed your telephone system and ask them to
connect the MFC for you. It is advisable to have a separate line for
the MFC. You can then leave the MFC in FAX mode to receive faxes
any time of day or night.
If the MFC is to be connected to a multi-line system, ask your installer
to connect the unit to the last line on the system. This prevents the
unit from being activated each time a telephone call is received.
As with all fax units, this machine must be connected to a two
wire system. If your line has more than two wires, proper
connection of the MFC cannot be made.
If you are Installing the MFC to Work with a PBX
1
2
3
It is not guaranteed that the unit will operate correctly under all
circumstances with a PBX. Any cases of difficulty should be
reported first to the company that handles your PBX.
If all incoming calls will be answered by a switchboard operator,
it is recommended that the Receive Mode be set to MANUAL.
All incoming calls should initially be regarded as telephone calls.
The MFC may be used with either pulse or tone dialing
telephone service.
Custom Features on Your Phone Line
If you have Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Caller ID, Caller Waiting/Caller
ID, RingMaster, an answering service, an alarm system or other
custom feature on one phone line it may create a problem with the
operation of your MFC. (See Custom features on a single line, page
21-8.)

About paper
The print quality of your document can be affected by the kind of
paper you use in the machine.
To ensure 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
“Quality/Color” tab in the printer driver.
Also avoid stacking by removing each page after it exits the
machine to avoid smudging.
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
up toward you.
■ 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
recommended transparencies.

How it works
When to use it
The MFC
automatically
answers every call as
a fax.
For dedicated fax lines.
The MFC controls the
line and automatically
answers every call. If
the call is a fax it will
receive the fax. If the
call is not a fax it will
ring (pseudo/double
ring) for you to pick up
the call.
Use this mode if you expect to receive lots of
fax messages and few telephone calls. You
cannot have an answering machine on the
same line, even if it is on a separate wall jack
(phone socket) on the same line. You cannot
use the telephone company’s Voice Mail in
this mode.
The external
answering machine
(TAD) automatically
answers every call.
Voice messages are
stored on the external
TAD. Fax messages
are printed.
Use this mode if you have an external
answering machine on your phone line.
The TAD setting works only with an external
answering machine. Ring Delay and F/T
Ring Time do not work in this setting.
You control the phone
line and must answer
every call yourself.
Use this mode when you are using a
computer modem on the same line or if you
don’t receive many [BP1] fax messages.
If you hear fax tones, wait until the machine
takes over the call, then hang up. (See Easy
Receive on page 5-4.)
* In FAX/TEL mode you must set the Ring Delay and F/T Ring Time.
If you have extension phones on the line, keep the Ring Delay set to
4 rings.

Setting the F/T Ring Time (FAX/TEL mode only)
If you set the Receive Mode to FAX/TEL, you’ll need to decide how
long the MFC will signal you with its special pseudo/double-ring when
you have a voice call. (If it’s a fax call, the machine prints the fax.) This
ringing happens after the initial ringing from the phone company. Only
the fax machine rings (for 20, 30, 40 or 70 seconds) and no other
phones on the same line will ring with the special pseudo/double-ring.
However, you can answer the call on any extension phone (in a
separate wall jack/phone socket) on the same line as the MFC. (See

Easy Receive
When you use this feature, you don’t have to press Fax Start when you
answer a fax call. Selecting ON allows the MFC to receive fax calls
automatically, even if you lift the handset of an extension or external
phone. When you see RECEIVING on the LCD or when you hear “chirps”
through the handset of an extension phone connected to another wall jack
(phone socket), just replace the handset and your MFC will do the rest.
Selecting OFF means you’ll have to activate the MFC yourself by lifting the
handset of an external or extension phone, and then press Fax Start on
the MFC—OR—by pressing
5 1 if you are not at your MFC. (See
Operation from extension telephones on page 5-5.)
If this feature is set to ON, but your MFC doesn’t connect a fax
call when you lift a phone handset, press the Fax Receive code

Advanced receiving operations
Operation from extension telephones
If you answer a fax call on an extension or external telephone in the
EXT. jack, you can make your MFC take the call by using the Fax
Receive Code. When you press the Fax Receive Code
5 1, the
MFC starts to receive a fax.
(See Easy Receive on page 5-4.)
If the MFC answers a voice call and pseudo/double-rings for you to
take over, use the Telephone Answer Code # 5 1 to take the call at
an extension phone. (See Setting the F/T Ring Time (FAX/TEL mode
only) on page 5-3.)
If you answer a call at an extension or external phone and no one is
on the line, you should assume that you’re receiving a fax. At an
extension phone, press
5 1, wait for fax-receiving tones (chirps),
and then hang up. At an external phone, press
5 1 and wait for
the phone to be disconnected before you hang up (the LCD shows
RECEIVING). Your caller will have to press Fax Start to send the fax.
For FAX/TEL mode only
When the MFC is in FAX/TEL mode, it will use the F/T Ring Time
(pseudo/double-ringing) to alert you to pick up a voice call. If you’re
at the machine, you can lift the handset to answer.
If you’re at an extension phone, you’ll need to lift the handset during
the F/T Ring Time and then press # 5 1 between the double rings. If
no one is on the line, or if someone wants to send you a fax, send the
call back to the machine by pressing
5 1.
Using a cordless external handset
If your cordless telephone is connected to the EXT. jack of the fax
machine and you typically carry the cordless handset elsewhere, it is
easier to answer calls during the Ring Delay. If you let the fax
machine answer first, you will have to answer using the cordless and
then go to the fax machine so you can press Hook to transfer the call
to the cordless handset.

Telephone services
Your MFC supports the Distinctive Ring telephone service that some
telephone companies offer.
If you have Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Caller ID, Call
Waiting/Caller ID, RingMaster, an answering service, an alarm
system or other custom features on your telephone line, it may
affect the way your MFC works. (See Custom features on a
single line on page 21-8.)
If you have Voice Mail on your phone line, please read the
following carefully.
Distinctive Ring
Brother uses the term ’Distinctive Ring’ but different telephone
companies have other names for this service such as SmartRing,
RingMaster, Teen-Ring, Indent-a-Call or Indent-a-Ring.
What does your telephone company’s ’Distinctive Ring’ do?
Your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring service allows you to
have more than one number on the same phone line. If you need
more than one phone number, it is a cheaper way of paying for
an extra line. Each phone number has its own distinctive ring
pattern, so you will know which phone number is ringing. This is one
way you can have a separate phone number for your MFC.
Please call your telephone company for availability and rates.
What does Brother’s ’Distinctive Ring’ do?
The Brother machine has a Distinctive Ring feature that allows you
to use your MFC to take full advantage of the telephone company’s
Distinctive Ring service. The new phone number on your line can just
receive faxes.
You must pay for your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring
service before you program the MFC to work with it.
SETUP RECEIVE 5 - 9
Do you have Voice Mail?
If you have Voice Mail on the phone line you will install your new MFC
on, there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail and the MFC will
conflict with each other while receiving incoming calls. However,
this Distinctive Ring feature allows you to use more than one
number on your line, so both Voice Mail and the MFC can work
together without any problems. If each one has a separate phone
number, neither will interfere with the other’s operations.
If you decide to get the Distinctive Ring service from the telephone
company, you will need to follow the directions below to ’register’ the
new Distinctive Ring pattern they give you. This is so your MFC can
recognize its incoming calls.
You can change or cancel the Distinctive Ring pattern at any
time. You can switch it off temporarily, and turn it back on later.
When you get a new fax number, make sure you reset this
feature.
Before you choose the ring pattern to register
You can only register one Distinctive Ring pattern with the MFC.
Some ring patterns cannot be registered. The ring patterns below are
supported by your Brother MFC. Register the one your telephone
company gives you.

your telephone company and ask for one that is shown.
5 - 10 SETUP RECEIVE
■ The MFC will only answer calls to its registered number.
■ The first two rings are silent on the fax machine. This is because
the fax must «listen» to the ring pattern (to compare it to the
pattern that was ’registered’). (Other telephones on the same line
will ring.)
■ If you program the MFC properly, it will recognize the registered
ring pattern of the ’fax number’ within 2 ring patterns and then
answer with a fax tone. When the ’voice number’ is called, the
MFC will not answer.
Very important
When you set the Distinctive Ring feature to ON, the receive mode
is set to MANUAL automatically. MANUAL mode will never pick up a
call by itself since it is <<Neutral>>. You can not change the receive

Access codes and credit card numbers
Sometimes you may want to choose from several long distance
carriers when you make a call. Rates may vary depending on the time
and destination. To take advantage of low rates, you can store the
access codes or long-distance carriers and credit card numbers as
Speed-Dial numbers. You can store these long dialing sequences by
dividing them and setting them up on separate keys in any
combination. You can even include manual dialing using the dial pad.
The combined number will be dialed in the order that you entered it
as soon as you press Fax Start.
(See Storing Speed Dial numbers on page 7-1.)
For example, you can store ’555’ on Speed Dial #03 and ’7000’ on
Speed Dial #02. If you press Search/Speed Dial, #03,
Search/Speed Dial, #02, and Fax Start, you will dial ’555-7000’.
To temporarily change a number, you can substitute part of the
number with manual dialing using the dial pad.
For example, to change the number to 555-7001 you could press
Search/Speed Dial, #03 and then press 7001 using the dialing pad.
If you must wait for another dial tone or signal at any point in the
dialing sequence, store a pause there in the number by pressing
Redial/Pause. Each key press adds a 3.5-second delay.

Groups, Speed Dial numbers and up to 50 manually dialed numbers.
If you did not use up all the numbers for Groups, access codes or
credit card numbers, you can ’broadcast’ faxes to up to 150 different
numbers. However, the available memory will vary depending on the
types of jobs in the memory and the number of locations used for
broadcasting. If you broadcast to more than the maximum numbers
available, you will not be able to use Dual Access and the Timer.
To include Speed Dial numbers and manually dialed numbers in the same
broadcast, you must press Menu/Set between each of the numbers. Use
Search/Speed Dial to help you choose the numbers easily.
(See Setting up Groups for Broadcasting on page 7-3.)
After the broadcast is finished, a Broadcast Report will be printed to
let you know the results.
■ Enter the long dialing sequence numbers as you would normally, but
remember that each Speed Dial number counts as one number, so the
number of locations you can store becomes limited.
■ If the line is busy a connection cannot be made so the MFC will
redial the number.
■ If the memory is full, press Stop/Exit to stop the job or if more
than one page has been scanned, press Fax Start to send the

Understanding the Error Messages
Once you are familiar with the types of errors that can occur while
you’re using the PhotoCapture Center™, you can easily identify and
troubleshoot any difficulties.
When an error message appears on the LCD, the MFC will beep to
get your attention.
MEDIA ERROR—This message will appear if you insert a media card
that is either bad or not formatted, or when there is a problem with
the media drive, or if the DPOF print file on the media card tried to
select a .JPG image that is not there. To clear this error, take out the
media card.
NO FILE—This message will appear if you select PHOTOCAPTURE
and the media card in the drive (slot) does not contain a .JPG file.
OUT OF MEMORY—This message will appear if you are working with
images that are too large for the MFC’s memory.
PhotoCapture Center™ Requirements
To avoid error conditions, please remember:
■ The DPOF file on the media card must be in a valid format.
■ The image file extension must be .JPG (Other image file
extensions .JPEG, .TIF, .GIF and so on will not be recognized).
■ Walk-up PhotoCaputure Center™ printing must be performed
separately from PhotoCapture Center™ operations using the PC.
(Simultaneous operation is not available.)
When printing the INDEX or IMAGE, the PhotoCapture Center™
will print all the valid images, even if one or more images has
been corrupted. A portion of the corrupted image may be printed.

higher the quality the longer it will take to print the document. The
quality selections that are available will vary depending on the media
type you select.
■ Photo: 2400 × 1200 dpi. Use this mode to print precise images
such as photographs. This is the highest resolution and slowest
speed.
■ S.Fine (Super Fine): 1200 × 1200 dpi. Use this mode to print
precise text and photographs. Since the print data is much larger
than normal mode, the processing time, data transfer time and
print time will be longer.
■ Fine: 600 × 600 dpi. Better print quality than normal mode and
faster print speed than Super Fine.
■ Normal: 600 × 300 dpi. Good print quality with typical print
speed.
■ Fast: 450 × 150 dpi. The fastest print mode and the lowest ink
consumption. Use this mode to print large volume documents or
a document for proofing.

■ Vivid: Suitable for business graphics such as charts, graphics
and text. The color is adjusted to give more vivid color.
Halftone Pattern
The MFC can use two methods (Diffusion or Dither) to arrange
where to place dots to express halftones. There are some predefined
patterns set for this and you can select which one to use for your
document. Select the appropriate method.
■ Diffusion: Dots are placed at random to create the halftones.
This method of printing is more suitable for printing photographs
that have delicate shades and graphics.
■ Dither: Dots are arranged in a pre-defined pattern to make halftones. This
type of printing is more suitable to printing graphics that have definite color
boundaries or for printing charts such as business charts.
Some halftone settings cannot be selected with certain
combinations of Media Type and Quality selections.

How to scan using Windows®
The scanning operations and drivers will be different depending
on your operating system.
For Windows® 95/98/98SE/Me/2000 Professional and
Windows NT® Workstation 4.0
The MFC uses a TWAIN Compliant driver for scanning
documents from your applications. See Scanning a document,
TWAIN compliant on page 15-1.
For Windows® XP
Use Windows® Imaging Acquisition (WIA) for scanning
documents. (See Scanning a document (For Windows® XP
only) on page 15-10.)
For ScanSoft™, PaperPort® and TextBridge® OCR
Go to Using ScanSoft™ PaperPort® and TextBridge® OCR on
page 15-19.
Scanning a document
TWAIN compliant
The Brother Multi-Function Link® Pro software includes a TWAIN
compliant scanner driver. TWAIN drivers meet the standard
universal protocol for communicating between scanners and
software applications. This means that not only can you scan images
directly into the PaperPort® viewer that Brother included with your
MFC, but you can also scan images directly into hundreds of other
software applications that support TWAIN scanning. These
applications include popular programs like Adobe® Photoshop®,
Adobe® PageMaker®, CorelDraw® and many more.

15 - 14 HOW TO SCAN USING WINDOWS®
Using the color scan key
You can use the Scan to key on the control
panel to scan originals into your word
processing, graphics or E-mail applications.
The advantage of using the Scan to key is
that you avoid the mouse clicks required to
scan from your computer.
The Scan to key will work only for Scan to Card if you are using a
Macintosh® computer.
For Scan to E-mail, Scan Image and Scan/OCR only
Before you can use the Scan to key on the control panel, you
must have connected the MFC to your Windows® based
computer and loaded the appropriate Brother Drivers for your
version of Windows®.
When you are ready to use the Scan to key, make sure the
Brother Control Center application is running on your computer.
(For Windows® 95/98/98SE/Me/2000 Professional and
Windows NT® 4.0 only) For details about how to configure the
Brother Control Center buttons to launch the application of your
choice using the Scan to key, see Brother MFL-Pro Control
Center on pages 14-1 to 14-2.

Using ScanSoft™ PaperPort® and
TextBridge® OCR
ScanSoft™ PaperPort® for Brother is a document management
application. You will use PaperPort® to view scanned documents.
PaperPort® has a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, filing system that
will help you organize your graphics and text documents. It allows
you to combine or “stack” documents of different formats for printing,
faxing or filing.
ScanSoft™ PaperPort® can be accessed through the ScanSoft™
PaperPort® program group.
See On-Line Documentation for Multi-Function Link® Pro on the CDROM.
The complete ScanSoft™ PaperPort® Users Guide, including
ScanSoft™ TextBridge® OCR, is in the On-Line documentation on
the CD-ROM.
This chapter is only an introduction to the basic operations.
When you install Multi-Function Link® Pro, ScanSoft™ PaperPort® for
Brother and ScanSoft™ TextBridge® OCR are installed with it
automatically.
If you are using Windows® XP or Windows® 2000 Professional,
we recommend that you are logged on as an administrator.
HOW TO SCAN USING WINDOWS® 15 - 19
Viewing items
ScanSoft™ PaperPort® provides several ways to view items:
Desktop View displays a thumbnail (a small graphic that represents
each item in a Desktop or folder).
Items in the selected folder appear on the PaperPort® Desktop. You
can see PaperPort® items (MAX files) and non-PaperPort® items
(files created using other applications).
Non-PaperPort® items include an icon that indicates the application
that was used to create the item; a non-PaperPort® item is represented
by a small rectangular thumbnail and not an actual image.
Desktop View displays items
as thumbnails
Page View displays a close-up of a single page and you can open a
PaperPort® item by double-clicking on it.
As long as you have the appropriate application on your computer to
display it, you can also double-click a non-PaperPort® item to open it.
Page View displays each item
as a full page
15 - 20 HOW TO SCAN USING WINDOWS®
Organizing your items in folders
PaperPort® has an easy-to-use filing system for organizing your
items. The filing system consists of folders and items that you select
to view in Desktop View. An item can be a PaperPort® item or a nonPaperPort® item:
■ Folders are arranged in a “tree” structure in the Folder View.
You use this section to select folders and view their items in
Desktop View.
■ You can simply drag and drop an item onto a folder.
When the folder is highlighted, release the mouse button and the
item is stored in that folder.
■ Folders can be “nested”—that is, stored in other folders.
■ When you double-click a folder, its items (both PaperPort® MAX
files and non paperport® files) appear on the Desktop.
■ You can also use Windows® Explorer to manage the folders
and items shown in Desktop View.
Quick links to other applications
ScanSoft™ PaperPort® automatically recognizes many other
applications on your computer and creates a “working link” to them.
The Send To Bar at the bottom of the Desktop view shows icons of
those linked applications.
To use a link, drag an item onto one of the icons to start the
application represented by the icon. A typical use of the Send To Bar
is to select an item and then fax it.
This sample Send To Bar shows several applications with links to
PaperPort®.
If PaperPort® does not automatically recognize one of the
applications on your computer, you can manually create a link using
the Add to Send To Bar... command.
(See PaperPort® in the On-Line-Documentation on the CD-ROM for
more information about creating new links.)
HOW TO SCAN USING WINDOWS® 15 - 21
ScanSoft™ TextBridge® OCR lets you convert
image text in to text you can edit
Software by:
ScanSoft™ TextBridge® OCR is installed automatically with
PaperPort® when you install Multi-Function Link® Pro on your
computer.
ScanSoft™ PaperPort® can quickly convert the text on a ScanSoft™
PaperPort® item (which is really just a picture of the text) into text that
you can edit with a word processing application.
PaperPort® uses the optical character recognition application
ScanSoft™ TextBridge®, which comes with PaperPort®
—OR—
PaperPort® uses your application if it is already on your computer.
You can convert the entire item, or by using the Copy Text
command, you can select only a portion of the text to convert.
Dragging an item onto a word-processing link icon starts PaperPort®’s
built-in OCR application, or you can use your own OCR application.
You can Import items from other applications
In addition to scanning items, you can bring items into PaperPort® in
a variety of ways and convert them to PaperPort® (MAX) files in
several different ways:
■ Print to the Desktop View from another application, such as
Microsoft Excel.
■ Import files saved in other file formats, such as Windows® Bitmap
(BMP) or Tag Image File Format (TIFF).
15 - 22 HOW TO SCAN USING WINDOWS®
You can Export items in other formats
You can export or save PaperPort® items in several popular file
formats, such as BMP, JPEG, TIFF, or self-viewing.
For example, to create a file for an Internet Web site, export it as a
JPEG file. Web pages often use JPEG files for displaying images.

Image
Resolution
From the Resolution pop-up menu choose the scanning resolution.
Higher resolutions use more memory and transfer time, but produce
a finer scanned image.
Color Type
Black & White—Set the image Type to Black and White for text or line art. For
photographic images, set the image type to Gray (Error diffusion) or True Gray.
Gray (Error Diffusion)—is used for documents with photographic images or
graphics. (Error Diffusion is a method for creating simulated gray images by placing
black dots instead of the true gray dots in a specific matrix instead of true gray dots.)
True Gray—is used for documents with photographic images or graphics.
This mode is more exact because it uses up to 256 shades of gray. It
requires the most memory and takes the longest transfer time.
Colors—Choose either 256 Color, which scans up to 256 colors or 24-bit
color which scans up to 16.8 million colors. Although using 24-bit color
creates an image with the most accurate colors, the image file will be
about three times larger than a file created with 256 Color.

Adjusting the Image
Brightness
Adjust the Brightness setting to get the best image. The Brother
TWAIN Scanner driver offers 100 Brightness levels (-50 to 50). The
default value is 0, representing an ‘average’ setting.
You can set the Brightness level by dragging the slide bar to the right
to lighten the image or to the left to darken the image. You can also
type a value in the box to set the level. Click OK.
If the scanned image is too light, set a lower Brightness level and
scan the image again.
If the image is too dark, set a
higher Brightness level and
scan the image again.
Contrast
You can only adjust the Contrast level when you have selected one
of the Gray Scale settings, it is not available when you have selected
Black & White is selected as the Gray Scale.
Increasing the Contrast level (by dragging the slide bar to the right)
emphasizes dark and light areas of the image, while reducing the
Contrast level (by dragging the slide bar to the left) reveals more
detail in the gray areas. Instead of using the slide bar, you can type
a value in the box to set the Contrast. Click OK.
Color Sync Dialog
19 - 15 USING YOUR MFC WITH A MACINTOSH®
Perceptual Matching—All the colors of a given gamut are scaled
proportionally to fit within another gamut. The purpose is to keep
maintain the balance between the colors of the image. This is the
best way to get realistic images, for photographs and other realistic
graphics.
Saturation Matching—The relative saturation of colors is maintained
from gamut to gamut. So basically the colors are shifted to the edge
of the gamut to get the most saturated color possible. Rendering the
image using this intent gives the strongest colors and is the best
choice for bar graphs and pie charts, in which the actual color
displayed is less important than its vividness.
Relative Colorimetric Matching—The colors that fall within the
gamuts of both devices are left unchanged. Some colors in both
images will be exactly the same, a useful outcome when colors must
match quantitatively. What that means is that if the color is inside the
gamut, it will stay the same color. However, if the color is outside the
gamut, it will be mapped to the edge of the gamut. This intent is best
suited for logos or “spot colors” where color must match.
Absolute Colorimetric Matching—A close appearance match may be
achieved over most of the tonal range, but if the minimum density of
the idealized image is different from that of the output image, the
areas of the image that are left blank will be different. Colors that fall
within the gamuts of both devices are left unchanged.

Canada) or (514) 685-6464 (in Montreal).
Poor quality print
Make sure the Printer Driver matches the type of paper you are using (See Media
Type on page 13-3.). If you are using plain paper, try using the types of
recommended paper (see Chapter 2). Don’t handle the paper until the ink is dry.
Adjust the Vertical Alignment (See Print Quality Check on page 21-10.).
Smudged stain at the top
center of the printed page
Change the paper thickness to thick in the paper tab of the print dialog
box, in the Printer Driver setting.
Printing is too dark or too light.
Make sure your ink cartridges are fresh. Cartridges are good for up to two
years, after that the ink may become clogged. Cartridge expiration dates
are printed on the package. Make sure the Printer Driver matches the
type of paper you are using (See Media Type on page 13-3.). Try using
the recommended types of paper (see Chapter 2). The recommended
environment for your MFC is between 68°F to 91°F (20°C to 33°C).

SUGGESTIONS
Phone Line or Connections
The MFC does not answer
when called
Make sure the MFC is in the correct receiving mode for your setup
(either MANUAL, FAX ONLY, FAX/TEL, or EXTERNAL TAD). Check for
a dial tone. If possible, call your MFC 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 MFC, ask your telephone company to check the line.
Sending Faxes
Poor sending quality
Try changing your resolution to FINE or S.FINE. Make a copy to check
your MFC’s scanner operation.
Transmission Verification
Report says ‘Result:NG’ or
‘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:NG’ or, on the
Transmission Verification Report, your MFC may be out of memory. To
gain extra memory, you can turn off Fax Storage (see Setting Fax
Storage on page 8-3.), print fax messages in memory (see page 5-6.) or
cancel a Delayed Fax or Polling Job (see Canceling a job in the memory
on page 6-10.). If the problem continues, ask the telephone company to
check your phone line.
Vertical black lines when
sending
If the copy you made shows the same problem, your scanner is dirty
(See Cleaning the Scanner on page 21-16.).
Handling Incoming Calls
MFC ‘Hear’ Voice as CNG
Tone
If your MFC is set to Easy Receive ON, it is more sensitive to sounds.
Your MFC may mistakenly interpret certain voices or music on the line
as a calling fax machine and respond with fax receiving tones.
Deactivate the fax by pressing Stop/Exit. Try avoiding this problem by
turning Easy Receive to OFF. (See Easy Receive, page 5-4)
Sending a Fax Call to the MFC
If you answered at the MFC, press Fax Start and hang up immediately.
If you answered on an extension phone, press your Fax Receive Code
(default setting is (
51). When your MFC answers, hang up.
Custom features on a single
line
If you have Call Waiting, Caller ID, Call Waiting/Caller ID, Ring Master, Voice
Mail, an alarm system or any other custom feature on a single phone line with
your MFC, it may create a problem sending or receiving fax data.
For example: If you are sending or receiving a fax message while a custom
feature signal comes through on the line, the signal can temporarily interrupt
or disrupt the fax data. Brother’s ECM 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 data on a single, shared line with
custom features. If avoiding a slight interruption is crucial to your business, we
recommend a separate phone line with no custom features.
Printer Difficulties
Horizontal lines appear in text
or graphics.
Clean the print head (see Cleaning the print head on pages 21-10). If
you clean the print heads five times and the print has not improved, call

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 printer
will not know the quantity of ink left in the cartridge.
■ DO NOT shake the ink cartridges, because the ink may spill when
you take off the sealing tape.
■ If ink stains your body or clothing, wash with soap or detergent
immediately.
■ If you install an ink cartridge in the wrong color position, you must
clean the print head several times before you start printing (after
correcting the cartridge installation) because the colors were mixed.
■ Once you open an ink cartridge, install it in the MFC and use it up
within six months of installation. Use unopened ink cartridges by
the expiration date written on the cartridge package.
■ Brother strongly recommends that you do not refill the ink cartridges
provided with your machine. We also strongly recommend that you
continue to use only Genuine Brother Brand replacement ink cartridges.
Using or attempting to use potentially incompatible inks and/or cartridges
in your machine may cause damage to the machine itself and/or it may
result in unsatisfactory print quality. Our warranty coverage does not
apply to any problem that was caused by the use of unauthorized third
party ink and/or cartridges. To protect your investment and guarantee
your print quality please continue to replace consumed ink cartridges
with only Genuine Brother Branded Supplies.
If the INK EMPTY message is on the display after you have installed
ink cartridges, check that the ink cartridges are installed correctly.
If you still cannot solve a problem with your MFC, call Brother
