Handling and using special
paper
The machine is designed to work well with
most types of xerographic and bond paper.
However, some paper variables may have an
effect on print quality or handling reliability.
Always test samples of paper before
purchasing to ensure desirable performance.
Store paper in its original packaging and keep
it sealed. Keep the paper flat and away from
moisture, direct sunlight and heat.
Types of paper to avoid
IMPORTANT
2
Some types of paper may not perform well
or may cause damage to your machine.
DO NOT use paper:
• that is highly textured
• that is extremely smooth or shiny
• that is curled or warped
Some important guidelines when selecting
paper are:
 DO NOT use inkjet paper because it may
cause a paper jam or damage your
machine.
 Preprinted paper must use ink that can
withstand the temperature of the
machine’s fusing process 392 degrees
Fahrenheit (200 degrees centigrade).
 If you use bond paper, paper having a
rough surface or paper that is wrinkled or
creased, the paper may exhibit degraded
performance.

A curl of 2 mm or greater may cause
jams to occur.
• that is coated or has a chemical finish
• that is damaged, creased or folded
• that exceeds the recommended weight
specification in this guide
• with tabs and staples
• with letterheads using low temperature
dyes or thermography
• that is multipart or carbonless
• that is designed for inkjet printing

Envelopes
2
Most envelopes designed for laser printers
will be suitable for your machine. However,
some envelopes may have feed and printquality problems because of the way they
have been made. A suitable envelope should
have edges with straight, well-creased folds.
The envelope should lie flat and not be of
baggy or flimsy construction. You should buy
quality envelopes from a supplier who
understands that you will be using the
envelopes in a laser machine.
• with glue on surface as shown in figure
below
• with double flaps
Envelopes can be fed from the manual feed
slot one at a time. We recommend that you
print a test envelope to make sure the print
results are what you want before you print or
purchase a large quantity of envelopes.
Types of envelopes to avoid
• with windows, holes, cut-outs or
perforations
• with each side folded as shown in
figure below
2
IMPORTANT
DO NOT use envelopes:
• that are damaged, curled, wrinkled or
an unusual shape
• that are extremely shiny or textured
• with clasps, staples, snaps or tie
strings
• with self-adhesive closures
• that are of a baggy construction
• that are not sharply creased
• that are embossed (have raised writing
on them)
• that were previously printed by a laser
machine
• that are pre-printed on the inside
• that cannot be arranged neatly when
stacked
• that are made of paper that weighs
more than the paper weight
specifications for the machine
• with edges that are not straight or
consistently square
20
If you use any of the types of envelopes
listed above, they may damage your
machine. This damage may not be
covered under any Brother warranty or
service agreement.
Loading paper
Labels
The machine will print on most types of labels
designed for use with a laser machine. Labels
should have an adhesive that is acrylic-based
since this material is more stable at the high
temperatures in the fuser unit. Adhesives
should not come in contact with any part of
the machine, because the label stock may
stick to the drum unit or rollers and cause
jams and print quality problems. No adhesive
should be exposed between the labels.
Labels should be arranged so that they cover
the entire length and width of the sheet. Using
labels with spaces may result in labels
peeling off and causing serious jams or print
problems.
All labels used in this machine must be able
to withstand a temperature of 392 degrees
Fahrenheit (200 degrees centigrade) for a
period of 0.1 seconds.
Do not feed a label sheet through the
machine more than one time.
2
Types of labels to avoid
2
Do not use labels that are damaged, curled,
wrinkled or an unusual shape.
2
IMPORTANT
• DO NOT feed part used label sheets. The
exposed carrier sheet will damage your
machine.
• Label sheets should not exceed the paper
weight specifications described in this
User’s Guide. Labels exceeding this
specification may not feed or print
correctly and may cause damage to your
machine.
• DO NOT reuse or insert labels that have
previously been used or are missing few
labels on the sheet.

Connecting an external
TAD
You can connect an external Telephone
Answering Device (TAD) to the same line as
your machine. When the TAD answers a call,
your machine will “listen” for the CNG (fax
calling) tones sent by a sending fax machine.
If it hears them it will take over the call and
receive the fax. If it does not hear them, it will
let your TAD take a voice message and the
display will show Ext. Tel in Use.
The external TAD must answer within four
rings (we recommend you set it to two rings).
This is because your machine cannot hear
the CNG tones until the external TAD has
picked up the call. The sending machine will
send CNG tones for only eight to ten seconds
longer. We do not recommend using the toll
saver feature on your external TAD if it needs
more than four rings to activate it.
Note
If you have problems receiving faxes,
reduce the ring delay setting on your
external TAD to one or two rings.

• We recommend beginning your OGM with
an initial 5 second silence because the
machine cannot hear fax tones over a loud
voice. You may try leaving out this pause,
but if your machine has trouble receiving
faxes, then you should re-record the OGM
to include it.
Multi-line connections (PABX)
7
Most offices use a central telephone system.
Brother recommends that all our Fax/MFC
machines be connected to a discreet
(dedicated) line. Although a particular PABX
may appear to work with a particular model of
fax machine, we cannot guarantee that the
unit will operate correctly.
While it is often relatively simple to connect a
fax machine to a PABX, (Private Automatic
Branch Exchange), we suggest that you
contact the company that installed your
telephone system and ask them to connect
the fax machine for you.

If you are having difficulty with your machine
If you think there is a problem with your machine, check the chart below and follow the
troubleshooting tips.
Most problems can be easily resolved by yourself. If you need additional help, the Brother
Solutions Center offers the latest FAQs and troubleshooting tips.
Visit us at http://solutions.brother.com/.
If you think there is a problem with the way your faxes look, make a copy first. If the copy looks
good, the problem may not be your machine. Check the chart below and follow the troubleshooting
tips.
Printing or printing received faxes
Difficulties
 Condensed print
 Horizontal streaks
Suggestions
Usually this is caused by a poor telephone connection. 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
Poor print quality
See Improving the print quality on page 106.
Vertical black lines when receiving
The corona wire for printing may be dirty. Clean the corona wire on the drum unit.
(See Cleaning the corona wire on page 68.)
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.
If the problem continues, call your dealer for service.
Received faxes appear as split or
blank 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 Paper Size on page 17.)
Turn on Auto Reduction. (See Printing a reduced incoming fax in Chapter 4 of the
Advanced User's Guide.)
Telephone line or connections
Difficulties
Suggestions
Dialling does not work.
Check for a dial tone.
Change Tone/Pulse setting. (See the Quick Setup Guide.)
Check all line cord connections.
Check that the machine is plugged in and switched on.
Send a fax manually and wait to hear fax receiving tones before pressing Start.
The machine does not answer
when called.
96
Make sure the machine is in the correct receive mode for your setup. (See
Receive Mode settings on page 29.) 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 you do not hear ringing when you call your machine, ask your
telephone company to check the line.
B
Troubleshooting
Receiving Faxes
Difficulties
Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
Make sure your machine has a dial tone by pressing the Hook/Hold key. If you
hear static or interference on your fax line, please contact your local telephone
company.
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into
the telephone wall socket and the LINE socket of the machine. If you subscribe to
DSL or VoIP services, please contact your service provider for connection
instructions.
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 Receive Mode settings on page 29.)
If you have a dedicated fax line and want your Brother machine to automatically
answer all incoming faxes, you should select Fax Only mode.
If your Brother machine shares a line with an external answering machine, you
should select the 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, you should select the 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 any incoming
faxes, you should select the 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 answer mode is set to Fax Only or Fax/Tel, reduce the ring delay to
1 ring. (See Ring Delay on page 29.)
 If the answer mode is set to External TAD, reduce the number of rings
programmed on your answering machine to 2.
 If the answer 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 properly.
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.

B
Receiving Faxes (continued)
Difficulties
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. (See Connecting an external TAD on page 32.)
(continued)
1
Connect the external TAD as shown in the illustration on page 33.
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 l51 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 Receive
Mode settings on page 29.)
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 Fax Detect on page 30.)
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 on page 105.)
(For MFC-7860DN)
Contact your administrator to check your Secure Function Lock Settings.
Sending faxes
Difficulties
Suggestions
Poor sending quality.
Try changing your resolution to Fine or S.Fine. Make a copy to check your
machine’s scanner operation. If the copy quality is not good, clean the scanner.
(See Cleaning the scanner glass on page 67.)
Transmission Verification Report
says RESULT:ERROR.
There is probably temporary noise or static on the line. Try sending the fax again.
If you are sending a PC-Fax message and get RESULT:ERROR on the
Transmission Verification Report, your machine may be out of memory. To free up
extra memory, you can turn off fax storage (see Changing Remote Fax Options in
Chapter 4 of the Advanced User's Guide), print fax messages in memory (see
Printing a fax from the memory in Chapter 4 of the Advanced User's Guide) or
cancel a delayed fax or polling job (see Checking and cancelling waiting jobs in
Chapter 3 of the Advanced 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 Compatibility setting to Basic(for VoIP). (See
Telephone line interference on page 105.)
Sent faxes are blank.
Make sure you are loading the document properly. (See Loading documents
on page 22.)
Vertical black lines when sending.
Black vertical lines on faxes you send are typically caused by dirt or correction fluid
on the glass strip. (See Cleaning the scanner glass on page 67.)
98
Troubleshooting
Sending faxes (continued)
Difficulties
Suggestions

(For MFC-7860DN)
Contact your administrator to check your Secure Function Lock Settings.
Handling incoming calls
Difficulties
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
Stop/Exit. Try avoiding this problem by turning Fax Detect to Off. (See Fax Detect
on page 30.)
Sending a fax call to the machine.
If you answered an external or extension telephone, press your Remote Activation
code (default setting is l51). 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 some other custom service and
its signal comes through the line while your machine is sending or receiving a fax,
the signal can temporarily interrupt or disrupt the faxes. 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 information
on a single, shared line with custom features. If avoiding a slight interruption is
crucial to your business, a separate line with no custom features is recommended.
Menu access difficulties

Improving the print quality
If you have a print quality problem, print a test page first (Menu, 4, 2, 3). If the printout looks good,
the problem is probably not the machine. Check the interface cable connections or try printing a
different document. If the printout or test page printed from the machine has a quality problem,
check the following steps first. And then, if you still have a print quality problem, check the chart
below and follow the recommendations.
Note
Brother does not recommend the use of cartridges other than genuine Brother Original
cartridges or the refilling of used cartridges with toner from other sources.
a
To get the best print quality, we suggest using the recommended paper. Check that you use
paper that meets our specifications. (See Acceptable paper and other print media
on page 17.)
b
Check that the drum unit and toner cartridge are installed properly.

Troubleshooting
Examples of poor print quality
Recommendation
 Check the paper type and quality. High temperatures and high
humidity will cause paper to curl. (See Acceptable paper and
other print media on page 17.)
 If you do not use the machine often, the paper may have been in
the paper tray too long. Turn over the stack of paper in the paper
tray. Also, fan the paper stack and then rotate the paper 180 in
the paper tray.
 Open the back cover (face-up output tray) for the machine to eject
printed pages onto the face-up output tray.
Curled or wavy
 Choose Reduce Paper Curl mode in the printer driver when you
do not use our recommended paper. (See Other Print Options (for
