your model’s Manual page.
Distinctive Ring is a telephone-company
service that allows you to have two different
phone numbers on a single line. Each
telephone number has its own ring pattern.
You can program your Brother machine to
automatically receive faxes on one of the two
numbers.
 (See Online User’s Guide: Distinctive
Ring.)

 (See Online User’s Guide: Turn off
Distinctive Ring.)
Features like VoIP, Voice Mail, Call Waiting,
Call Waiting/Caller ID, RingMaster,
answering services, alarm systems or other
custom features on one telephone line may
create problems with the operation of your
machine. If you have Voice Mail on your
telephone line, please read the following
carefully.
If you have voice mail service and your
Brother machine on the same line, they will
conflict with one another when receiving
incoming calls. If you want the Brother
machine to share a single line with your voice
mail, you must either put the Brother machine
in Manual mode or subscribe to your
telephone company’s Distinctive Ring
service.

machine’s Receive Mode to External TAD.
When you record the outgoing message on
your external TAD, we recommend recording
5 seconds of silence at the beginning of
message, and limiting your speaking to
20 seconds.

Receive Modes
11
How to choose the correct Receive Mode
11
The correct Receive Mode is determined by the external devices and telephone subscriber
services (such as Voice Mail and Distinctive Ring) you will be using on the same line as the
Brother machine.
Will you be using a Distinctive Ring number for receiving faxes?
Brother uses the term “Distinctive Ring” but different telephone companies may have other names for this
service, such as Custom Ringing, RingMaster, Personalized Ring, Teen Ring, Ident-A-Ring, Ident-A-Call,
Data Ident-A-Call, Smart Ring and SimpleBiz Fax & Alternate Number Ringing. (See Online User’s Guide:
Distinctive Ring.)
Will you be using Voice Mail 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 Online User’s Guide: Voice Mail.)
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 Online User’s Guide: External TAD (Telephone Answering Device).)
11
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 Fax Only on page 34.)
Will you be using your Brother machine on the same line as your telephone?
Do you want to receive voice calls and faxes automatically?
Fax/Tel mode is used when sharing the Brother machine and your telephone on the same line.
Choose Fax/Tel as your Receive Mode. (See Fax/Tel on page 34.)
Important Note: You cannot receive voice messages on either Voice Mail or an answering machine
with Fax/Tel mode.
Do you expect to receive very few faxes?
Choose Manual as your Receive Mode. You control the telephone line and must answer every call
yourself. (See Manual on page 35.)

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.
Action
The ink absorber box or flushing box
must be replaced. Call Brother
Customer Service or a Brother
Authorized Service Center to have
your machine serviced. (See Brother
numbers on page i.)
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 color have been replaced
12 times.

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 send the fax again.
 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 14.)
Turn on Auto Reduction.
(See Online User’s Guide: Shrink Page Size of an Oversized Incoming Fax.)
Telephone Line or Connections
Difficulty
Suggestions
Dialing does not work.
(No dial tone)
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into
the telephone wall jack and the LINE jack inside the machine.
(Canada only) Change the Tone/Pulse setting.
(See Online User’s Guide: Set Tone or Pulse Dialing Mode.)
Send a manual fax by pressing Hook and dialing the number. Wait to hear
fax-receiving tones before pressing Fax Start.
If there is no dial tone, connect a known-working telephone and telephone line
cord to the jack. 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 jack.
If you subscribe to DSL, VoIP, or MagicJack services, contact your service
provider for connection instructions.
The machine does not answer
when called.
Make sure the machine is in the correct Receive Mode for your setup.
(See How to choose the correct Receive Mode on page 33.) Check for a dial tone.
If possible, call your machine to hear it answer. If there is still no answer, check
that the telephone line cord is plugged into the telephone wall jack and the LINE
jack inside the machine. 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.
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 jack and the LINE jack inside the machine. If you subscribe to
DSL, VoIP or MagicJack services, call 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 69.)
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 How to choose the correct Receive Mode on page 33.)
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 the line with a Voice Mail subscriber service,
see Online User’s Guide: Voice Mail.
If your Brother machine is on a line with the Distinctive Ring subscriber service,
see Online User’s Guide: Distinctive Ring.
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
pseudo/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 36.)
 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: External TAD (Telephone Answering Device).)
1
Plug the telephone line cord directly from the wall telephone jack to your
Brother machine’s LINE jack.
2
Remove the protective cap from your Brother machine’s EXT. jack, and then
plug the telephone line cord from your answering machine into the EXT. jack.
3
Set your answering machine to answer within 4 rings.
If you are having problems receiving faxes or voice messages, set your
answering machine to answer within 2 or 3 rings.
4
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 Fax Receive Code for people
sending manual faxes. For example: “After the beep, leave a message or
press l 5 1 and Start to send a fax.”
5
Set your answering machine to answer calls.
6
Set your Brother machine’s Receive Mode to External TAD. (See How to
choose the correct Receive Mode on page 33.)
Make sure your Brother machine’s Easy Receive feature is turned On. Easy
Receive 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: Set Easy Receive.)
If you often get transmission errors due to possible interference on the telephone
line, try changing the Compatibility setting to Basic(for VoIP).

says RESULT:NG.
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 on the Transmission

To gain extra memory, you can turn off Memory Receive (see Online User’s
Guide: Turn off Memory Receive), print fax messages from the machine’s memory
(see Online User’s Guide: Print a Fax Stored in the Machine’s Memory), or cancel
a Delayed Fax or Polling Job (see Online User’s Guide: Cancel a Fax in Progress

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 69.)
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 on page 37.)
Handling Incoming Calls
Difficulty
Suggestions
The machine “hears” a voice as a
CNG Tone.
If Easy Receive 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 Easy Receive to Off.
(See Online User’s Guide: Set Easy Receive.)
Sending a fax call to the machine.
If you answered on an extension telephone, press your Fax Receive Code (the
factory setting is l 5 1). If you answered on the external telephone (connected to
the EXT. jack), 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, RingMaster, 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.

Telephone Line Interference
or VoIP System
VoIP (Voice over IP) is a type of phone
system that uses an Internet connection,
rather than a traditional phone line.

If you are having problems sending or
receiving a fax due to possible interference
on the telephone line, or if you are using a
VoIP system, we recommend that you
change the modem speed to minimize errors
in fax operations.
