your skin or clothing, wash with soap or
detergent at once.
• DO NOT touch the cartridge in the area
indicated b, as this can cause the machine not
to function with the cartridge.

The machine will prepare the ink tube system for
printing. This process will take approximately four
minutes. Do not turn off the machine.
5
IMPORTANT
• DO NOT take out 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 repeatedly insert and remove the
cartridges. If you do so, ink may seep out of the
cartridge.
• If you mix the colors by installing an ink
cartridge in the wrong position, clean the print
head several times after correcting the
cartridge installation. (See Cleaning the print
head in Appendix A of the Basic User’s Guide.)
• 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 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. Use or
attempted use of potentially incompatible ink
and/or cartridges in the Brother machine may
cause damage to the machine and/or may
result in unsatisfactory print quality. Our
warranty coverage does not apply to any
problem that is caused by the use of
unauthorized third party ink and/or cartridges.
To protect your investment and obtain premium
performance from the Brother machine, we
strongly recommend the use of Genuine
Brother Supplies.

Choose the correct Receive Mode
The correct Receive Mode is determined by the external devices and telephone subscriber services (Voice Mail,
Distinctive Ring, etc.) you have (or will be using) on the same line as the Brother machine.
For details, see Using Receive Modes in chapter 5 of the Basic User’s Guide.
Will you be using a Distinctive Ring number for receiving faxes?
Brother uses the term “Distinctive Ring” but telephone companies may have other names for this service such
as Custom Ringing, RingMaster, Personalized Ring, Teen Ring, Ident-A-Call, and Smart Ring. See Distinctive
Ring in chapter 6 of the Basic User’s Guide for instruction on setting up your machine using this feature.
Will you be using Voicemail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine?
If you have Voice Mail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine, there is a strong possibility that
Voice Mail and the Brother machine will conflict with each other when receiving incoming calls. See Voice Mail
in chapter 6 of the Basic User’s Guide for instructions on setting up your machine using this service.
Will you be using a Telephone Answering Device on the same telephone line as your Brother machine?
Your external telephone answering device (TAD) will automatically answer every call. Voice messages are
stored on the external TAD and fax messages are printed. Choose External TAD as your receive mode. See
the instructions below. For additional details, see Connecting an external TAD (telephone answering device) in
chapter 6 of the Basic User’s Guide.
Will you be using your Brother machine on a dedicated fax line?
Your machine automatically answers every call as a fax. Choose Fax Only as your receive mode. See the
instructions below.
Will you be using your Brother machine on the same line as your telephone?
Do you want to receive voice calls and faxes automatically?
The Fax/Tel receive mode is used when sharing the Brother machine and your telephone on the same
line. Choose Fax/Tel as your receive mode. See the instructions below. For additional information see
Fax/Tel in chapter 5 of the Basic User’s Guide for instructions on setting up and using this receive mode.
Important Note: You cannot receive voice messages on either Voice Mail or an answering machine
when choosing the Fax/Tel mode.
Do you expect to receive very few faxes?
Choose Manual as your receive mode. You control the phone line and must answer every call yourself.

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991
makes it unlawful for any person to use a
computer or electronic device to send any
message via a telephone fax machine unless
such messages clearly contain, in a margin at the
top or bottom of each transmitted page, or on the
first page of the transmission, the date and time it
is sent and an identification of the business or
other entity or other individual sending the
message and the telephone number of the
sending machines or such business, other entity

Before you begin
First you must configure the wireless network settings of your machine to communicate with your access
point/router. After the machine is configured to communicate with your access point/router, computers on your
network will have access to the machine. To use the machine from these computers, you will need to install the
drivers and software. The following steps will guide you through the configuration and installation process.
To achieve optimum results with normal everyday document printing, place the Brother machine as close to the
network access point/router as possible with minimal obstructions. Large objects and walls between the two
devices as well as interference from other electronic devices can affect the data transfer speed of your documents.
Due to these factors, wireless may not be the best method of connection for all types of documents and
applications. If you are printing large files, such as multi-page documents with mixed text and large graphics, you
may want to consider choosing wired Ethernet for a faster data transfer or USB for the fastest throughput speed.
Although your Brother machine can be used in both a wired and wireless network, only one of the connection
methods can be used at a time.
NOTE
If you have previously configured the wireless settings of the machine you must reset the network settings
before you can configure the wireless settings again.
On your machine, press
. Press All Settings.
Press Network.
Swipe up or down, or press a or b to display Network Reset, and then press Network Reset.
