Introduction
Using This Manual
Thank you for purchasing a Brother fax machine or multi-function center. This
machine has been designed to be simple to use, with LCD screen prompts to guide
you through functions. However, you can use your fax machine to its fullest
potential by taking a few minutes to read this manual. To simplify the manual
instrucions, all FAX and MFC models are referred to as “fax machine”.
Additionally, your fax machine has a Help Key. Press
operational steps and functions.

CHAPTER ONE
About Fax Machines
If you’re a first-time fax machine user, fax operation might seem a little
mysterious. You’ll soon get used to the unusual fax tones on your phone line, and
be able send and receive faxes easily.
Fax Tones and Handshake
When someone is sending a fax, the fax machine sends fax calling tones,
(CNG tones) — soft, intermittent beeps at 4-second intervals. You’ll hear them
when you dial and press Start , and they continue for 30 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
soft beeps each time you answer a phone on your fax line, so you can know if you
are receiving a fax message.
The receiving fax responds with fax receiving tones — loud, chirping sounds. A
receiving fax chirps for 40 seconds over the phone line, and the screen displays
“RECEIVE.” If your machine is set to the FAX ONLY Mode, it will answer every call
automatically with fax receiving tones. Even if the other party hangs up, your fax
machine continues to send the “chirps” for 40 seconds, and the screen continues
to display “RECEIVE.” To cancel the receiving mode, press Stop .
When your fax machine is in FAX/TEL (F/T), it answers with a short beep. After
this beep, the fax machine listens for CNG tones, and then responds with receiving
tones.
The fax “handshake” is the time in which the sending machine’s CNG tones and
the receiving machine’s “chirps” overlap. This must be for at least two to four
seconds, so the fax 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 30 seconds after the number is dialed. Therefore, it’s 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 determine the number of rings before the call is answered. Pay
special attention to the directions in the Installation chapter for connecting a TAD
to your fax machine.
INTRODUCTION
ECM (Error Correction Mode)
The Error Correction Mode (ECM) is a way for the fax machine to check the
integrity of a fax transmission while it is in progress. ECM transmissions are
possible only between machines that both have the ECM feature. If they do, you
may send and receive fax messages that are continuously checked for their
integrity.
Sufficient memory must be available in your fax machine for this feature to work.

ASSEMBLY AND CONNECTIONS
Choosing a Location
Place your fax machine on a flat, stable surface, such as a desk. Select a place
that is free of vibration and shocks. Locate the fax machine near a telephone jack
and a standard, grounded power outlet.
Avoid placing your fax machine in a high-traffic area. Do not place near heaters,
air conditioners, water, chemicals, or refrigerators. Do not expose the fax machine
to direct sunlight, excessive heat, moisture, or dust. Do not connect your fax
machine to electrical outlets controlled by wall switches or automatic timers.
Disruption of power can wipe out information in the unit’s memory. Do not
connect your fax machine to electrical outlets on the same circuit as large
appliances or other equipment that might disrupt the power supply. Avoid
interference sources, such as speakers or the base units of cordless phones.

*PC I/F jack is for use only with Multi-Function
Link®, which is included with the MFC 1770/1780,
or with the Missing Link option. If you have not
purchased Missing Link or Multi-Function Link®
for your FAX 1170/1270, then ignore this jack.
Connect the power cord
When you connect the power, the screen displays 01/01 00:00.
NOTICE:
1) This fax must be grounded using a 3-prong plug.
2) Since the machine is grounded through the power outlet, you can protect
yourself from potentially hazardous electrical conditions on the telephone
network by keeping the power to your fax machine on when you connect it to
a telephone line. Similarly, you can protect yourself when you want to move
your machine, by disconnecting the telephone line first, and then the power
cord.
3) Lightning and power surges can damage this product! We recommend that
you use a quality surge protection device on the AC power line as well as on
the telephone line, or unplug the lines during a lightning storm.
ASSEMBLY AND CONNECTIONS
Connect the telephone line
Connect one end of the telephone line cord to the jack labeled LINE on the left
side of the fax machine. Connect the other end to a modular wall jack.
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 fax machine 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 fax machine on any
of the other numbers; when the other lines are busy and a second fax call is
received, the fax call is transferred to a line that does not have a fax machine.
Your fax machine 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 fax machine must be plugged into an RJ11
jack. RJ11 and RJ14 jacks may be equal in size and appearance and both may
contain 4 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 fax machine.
13
14
CHAPTER TWO
Converting Telephone Wall Outlets
There are three ways to convert to an RJ11 receptacle. 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 fax machine is on Line 1,
plug the fax machine into L1 of the triplex adapter. If your machine is on Line 2,
plug it into L2 of the triplex adapter.

Installing Fax Machine, 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 fax machine must be isolated on one line at both
the wall jack and at the TAD. The most common connection is to put the fax
machine on Line 2, which is our assumption 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 fax machine 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 fax machine.
2 Plug one end of the telephone line cord for your fax machine into the L2
jack of the triplex adapter. Plug the other end into the LINE jack on the left
side of the fax machine.
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.
ASSEMBLY AND CONNECTIONS
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 fax machine.
Triplex Adapter
Two Line External TAD
Two 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 fax machine’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.
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 fax machine for you. It is advisable to have a separate
line for the fax machine. You can then leave the machine in FAX ONLY Mode to
receive faxes any time of day or night.
See
Easy Receive
p. 36
If the fax machine 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 fax machine cannot
be made.
15
16
CHAPTER TWO
If you are installing the machine to work with a PBX:
1 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.
2 If all incoming calls will be answered by a switchboard operator, it is
recommended that the Answer Mode be set to MANUAL. All incoming calls
should initially be regarded as telephone calls.
3 The unit may be used with either pulse or tone dialing telephone service.
Custom Features on Your Phone Line
If you have Call Waiting, Ring Master, Voice Mail, an answering service, alarm
system or any other custom feature on your telephone line, it may create a
problem in the operation of your fax machine.
Connecting an External
Telephone Answering Device (TAD)
Sequence
You might choose to connect an additional answering system. When you have an
external TAD on the same telephone line as the fax machine, the TAD answers
all calls. The fax machine “listens” for fax calling (CNG) tones. If it hears them,
the fax machine takes over the call and receives the fax. If it doesn’t hear CNG
tones, the fax machine lets the TAD continue playing your outgoing message so
your caller can leave you a voice message.
The TAD must answer within 4 rings (the recommended setting is 2 rings). The
fax machine cannot hear CNG tones until the TAD has answered the call, and
with 4 rings there are only 8-10 seconds of CNG tones left for the fax
“handshake.” Make sure you carefully follow instructions in this manual for
recording your outgoing message. We do not recommend using the “toll-saver”
feature on your TAD if it exceeds 4 rings.
ASSEMBLY AND CONNECTIONS
Do not connect a TAD elsewhere on the same phone line — your
fax machine and TAD will both try to control the line.
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 fax machine, use that number as a fax number and set your
machine’s Answer mode to MANUAL.
Connections
The external TAD must be plugged into the left side of the fax machine, into the
jack labeled EXT. Your fax machine cannot work properly if you plug the TAD into
a wall jack.
1 Plug the telephone line cord from the wall jack into the left side of the fax
machine, in the jack labeled LINE.
2 Plug the telephone line cord from your TAD into the left side of the fax
machine, 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 the Answer Mode to TAD.
4 Set your external TAD to 4 rings or less. (The fax machine’s Ring Delay
setting does not apply).
5 Set the TAD to answer calls.
6 Record the outgoing message (see below).
17
18
CHAPTER TWO
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 fax machine 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 Remote Activation Code for
people sending manual faxes. For example:
“After the beep, leave a message or send a fax by pressing ✳ 5 1.”
We recommend beginning your OGM with an initial 5-second silence because the
Brother machine cannot hear fax tones over a resonant or loud voice. You may try
omitting this pause, but if your machine has trouble receiving, then you must
rerecord the OGM to include it.
Connecting an External Telephone
Your fax machine is equipped with a handset that you can use as a regular
phone. However, you can also connect a separate telephone (or telephone
answering device) directly to your fax machine.
Connect the modular plug on the telephone’s line cord to the jack labeled EXT. on
the left side of the fax machine.
Whenever this phone (or TAD) is in use, the screen displays “EXT. TEL IN USE,”
and, if the fax handset is lifted, an alarm sounds. To disconnect the call on the
external phone and switch to the fax, press Hook .

on-screen prompts to help you program your fax machine. All you need to do is
follow the prompts as they guide you through the function menu selections and
programming options and settings.
Function Mode
You can access the function mode by pressing Function . When you enter the
function mode, your fax machine displays a list of main menu options from
which you can choose. These menu options appear one after the other on the
display. Select a menu option by pressing Set when the option appears on the
LCD. The display will scroll the options within that menu.
You can “scroll” more quickly through options by pressing . When the screen
displays your selection, press Set . (Use to scroll backward if you passed your
choice or to save key strokes. Both arrow keys show all options, in the opposite
order.)
If you want to exit the Function Mode, press
Stop .

Alternating Displays
When you see alternating displays, the LCD sometimes alternates between the
currently selected option, and a help message giving brief instructions about how
to proceed. The display you'll probably see most often is shown below, showing
you, when you place a document in the feeder, that you can dial a number and
send a fax, or you can make a copy.

Distinctive Ring
This fax machine feature lets you use the Distinctive Ring subscriber service
offered by some telephone companies, which allows you to have several telephone
numbers on one phone line. Each phone number has its own Distinctive Ring
pattern, so you know which phone number is ringing. This is one way you can
have a separate phone number for your fax machine.
Your fax machine has a Distinctive Ring function, allowing you to dedicate one
phone number just for receiving faxes. You’ll need to follow the directions below
53
54
CHAPTER SEVEN
to “register” the Distinctive Ring pattern, so your fax machine can recognize its
incoming calls. You will need another person standing by on another line to help
you with Step 6 of this registration.
You can change or cancel the Distinctive Ring pattern at any time. You can switch
it off temporarily, then turn it back on. When you get a new fax number, make
sure you reset this function.
You can register only one Distinctive Ring pattern with the fax machine. Some
ringing patterns cannot be registered.
■ The fax machine will answer only calls to its registered number.
■ To have your TAD answer only the main number, the fax machine must be in
MANUAL Mode.
