CHAPTER 1 ABOUT THIS MACHINE
Features of your printer
❏ Full Copier Function
Multiple copies are easy to print using the Sort key on the control panel.
For more information, see “How to Copy” in this Chapter.
❏ High Resolution and Fast Printing Speed
True 600 x 600 dpi with microfine toner and up to 12 pages per minute
(ppm) print speed (using A4 or Letter size paper).
❏ Quick Print Setup
In a small selection window on your computer screen, you can easily make
changes to settings that you use frequently.
❏ Versatile Paper Handling
This printer loads paper automatically from the paper cassette. You can
load A4, letter, B5, Executive, A5 and A6 size paper. The manual feed slot
allows you to load pages manually, one sheet at a time, so you can use
special types of paper. For additional information, see “What kind of paper
can I use” in this Chapter.
❏ Document Management Application ‘PaperPort for Brother
Software’ (For USA/Canada)
PaperPort® for Brother Software is a document management application
which contains a viewer, editor and filing system plus various links to other
applications. PaperPort® for Brother Software is a sophisticated application
and has widespread industry acceptance and endorsements. For more
information, see “How to Scan” in this Chapter.
1-3
❏ Sophisticated Viewer and Document management Software
TM
‘Wordcraft Unimessage Pro’ (For other Countries)
Wordcraft UnimessageTM Pro Viewer is a sophisticated viewer for displaying
and editing graphic files. In addition to the usual image editing functions
(object drawing, annotations, highlighting, etc.) you will also be able to use
this software to view both colour and monochrome images, create cover
sheets for use with the P2500, display thumbnails of graphics files in any of
your directories and set up a referencing system for your files using DIR
(Document Indexing Retrieval). For more information, see “How to Scan”
in this Chapter.
❏ TWAIN Compliant Scanner Driver (For Windows and Macintosh
users)
The scanner driver is TWAIN compliant which is a defacto standard. You
can use the scanner in other TWAIN compliant applications as well as in
the PaperPort® application or UnimessageTM Pro viewer application.
❏ Enhanced Printing Performance and User-friendly Operation for
®
Windows
The dedicated printer drivers for Microsoft® Windows® 95/98, Windows
3.1x® and Windows NT® 4.0 are available on the CD-ROM supplied with
your printer. You can easily install them into your Windows system using
our installer program. The driver supports our unique compression mode to
enhance the printing speed in Windows applications and allows you to
choose various printer settings including toner save mode, custom paper
size, sleep mode, gray scale adjustment, resolution and many layout
functions and so forth. You can easily set these print options through the
Printer Setup Menu.
❏ Popular Printer Emulation Support
The printer supports HP LaserJet 5P (PCL5e). When you use DOS
application software or Windows® version 3.0 or earlier, you can use this
emulation to operate the printer.
1-4
CHAPTER 1 ABOUT THIS MACHINE
❏ Printer Status Monitor for USB interface cable or LPTx port users
only (For Windows 95/98 users only)
The printer driver can monitor the status of your printer using bi-directional
parallel communications. The use of a high quality IEEE 1284 compliant
bi-directional parallel printer cable is recommended.
The printer status monitor program can show the current status of your
printer. If an error occurs, the status monitor will let you know what to
correct. For example: when your printer is out of paper, the status monitor
will display “Cover Open” and instructions for loading paper.
❏ USB Interface (For Windows 98, iMac and Power Macintosh G3 with
USB users Only)
This printer can be connected by the USB (Universal Serial Bus) Interface
to a PC that has a USB interface. Drivers to allow you to use the USB port
are provided on the CD-ROM supplied with the printer.
❏ Remote Printer Console Program for DOS
The Remote Printer Console (RPC) utility program is available on the CDROM supplied with your machine. When you operate your computer in a
DOS (Disk Operating System) environment, this program allows you to easily
change the default settings of fonts, page setup and emulations.
This program also provides a status monitor program, which is a Terminateand-Stay Resident (TSR) program. It can monitor the printer status while
running in the background and report the current status or errors on your
computer screen.
❏ Enhanced Memory Management
The printer provides its own data compression technology in the printer
hardware and the supplied printer driver software, which compresses
graphic and font data efficiently into the printer’s memory. You can avoid
memory errors and print most full page 600 dpi graphic and text data,
including larger fonts, with the printer’s standard memory.
1-5
❏ Environment-Friendly
Economy Printing Mode
This feature will cut your printing cost by saving toner. It is useful to print
draft copies for proof-reading. You can select economy modes through the
Windows printer driver supplied with your printer.
Sleep Mode (Power Save Mode)
When the printer is not used for a certain period of time, it goes into sleep
mode to reduce power consumption. The printer consumes less than 10
Watts when in sleep mode.
Low Running Cost
Since the toner cartridge is separate from the drum unit, you must replace
only the toner cartridge after approximately 3,000 pages, this is both cost
effective and ecologically friendly. (An optional high capacity toner unit
that will print up to 6,000 pages is also available for this printer.)
The actual number of pages printed with a toner cartridge may vary
depending on your average type of print job, the figures quoted are based
on 5% coverage per page.
You can print up to 20,000 pages with the drum unit, however there are
many factors that determine the actual drum life.
❏ Bar Code Print
This printer can print the following 11 types of bar codes:
•

optional memory board. We recommend that you add memory if you want to
print graphics at higher resolutions. When you add an optional memory board,
it increases the performance of printer operations. See “How to add extra
Memory” in Chapter 2.
❏ External Print Server (Brother NC-2010p)
An optional Network print server Brother NC-2010p is available, which
allows your printer to be connected to your Network using a parallel interface.
See “What is the Brother print server (NC-2010p)” in Chapter 2.

CHAPTER 1 ABOUT THIS MACHINE
Remarks about paper
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
We recommend that you test paper, especially special sizes and types of
paper, including heavy paper, on this printer before you purchase large
quantities.
Avoid using coated paper, such as vinyl coated paper.
Avoid using preprinted or highly textured paper.
For optimum print quality, use a recommended type of paper, especially
for plain paper and transparencies. For more information on paper
specifications, consult your nearest Brother authorized sales representative
or the place where you purchased your printer .
If the paper has problems feeding from the paper cassette, use the manual
feed slot and try again.
To avoid damage to the printer’s drum unit, use neutral paper. Do not use
acid paper.
For optimum print quality, make sure you select the appropriate media
type in the printer driver.
If you use the printer for special print jobs for more than short periods of
time (for example, printing of name cards) the print quality may be
degraded or the life of the drum unit may be shortened.
Cut Sheet
We recommend that you use long-grained paper for the best print quality.

How to Print on Both Sides of the paper
(Manual Duplexing)
The supplied printer drivers for Windows® 95/98, Windows® 3.1x and
Windows NT® 4.0 all enable manual duplex printing. For more detailed
information, please see the Help text in the printer driver.
Guidelines for printing on both sides of the paper
1 If the paper is too thin, it may wrinkle.
2 If the paper is curled, straighten it and then place it in the paper cassette.

How to Add extra Memory
The printer has 4 Mbytes of standard memory and a slot for optional additional
memory. The memory can be expanded up to a total of 12 or 20 Mbytes by
installing the optional memory board.
The printer can recognize 8MB (ME-8000) or 16MB (ME-16000) of optional
memory. Be careful to purchase the appropriate memory board for your needs.
The memory board is located on the main control board inside the printer.
When you add an optional memory board, it increases the performance for
printer operations.
✒ Note
This printer can also support a resolution of true 600 dpi under Windows®
95/98, Windows® 3.1x and Windows NT® 4.0 with the supplied printer driver.
We recommend you expand the printer memory to avoid any memory full
errors.
The printer has only one slot for a memory board upgrade. If you want to
increase your printer memory again after you have already installed a memory
board module into the slot, you will need to remove the previously installed
memory board first. Then you can install a different memory board. For
example, if you previously increased the printer memory from the standard
4MB to 12MB by adding an 8MB memory board, you would have remove the
installed 8MB memory board if you wanted to install a new 16 MB memory
board into the printer.

Caution
Wait to unpack the toner cartridge until immediately before you are ready
to install it in the printer. If toner cartridges are left unpacked for a long
period of time, the toner life is shortened.
If an unpacked drum unit is subjected to excessive direct sunlight or room
light, the drum unit may be damaged.
You can only use a genuine Brother toner cartridge which is specially
formulated to ensure top print quality.
Printing with a 3rd party toner or toner cartridge may reduce not only the

CHAPTER 3 MAINTENANCE
How to Replace the Drum Unit
The printer uses a drum unit to create the print images on paper. When the
‘CHANGE DRUM SOON’ message appears on the LCD display, it indicates that
the drum unit is near the end of its life. Purchase a new drum unit to replace the
current one.
!
Caution
• When removing the drum unit, handle it carefully because it contains toner.
• You should clean the printer when you replace the drum unit. See “How to
clean the printer” in this chapter and in the instructional video on the
supplied CD-ROM.
✒ Note
• The drum unit is a consumable, and it is necessary to replace it periodically.
• There are many factors that determine the actual drum life, such as
temperature, humidity, type of paper, your typical type of print job and the
amount of toner it uses and the number of pages per print job, etc.. The
average drum life is estimated at approximately 20,000 pages. The actual
number of pages that your drum will print may be significantly less than
this estimate. Because we have no control over the many factors that
determine the actual drum life, we cannot guarantee a minimum number of
pages that will be printed by your drum.
• For best performance, use only genuine Brother toner. The product should
only be used in a clean, dust-free environment with adequate ventilation.
3-9
Follow these steps to replace the drum unit. You can also view the drum unit
replacement method in the instructional video on the supplied CD-ROM:
☛ 1. Open the front cover of the printer and pull out the drum unit assembly.

✒ Note
• Discard the used drum unit according to local regulations. If you are not
sure of them, consult your local dealer/retailer. Be sure to seal up the drum
unit tightly so that toner powder does not spill out of the unit. Do not
discard used drum units together with domestic waste.
• We recommend that you place the drum unit on a piece of cloth or
disposable paper in case you accidentally spill or scatter toner.
• Handle the toner cartridge carefully as it contains toner. If toner scatters
and your hands or clothes get dirty, wipe or wash it off with cold water
immediately.

appear when I view my
document on screen but
do not show up when I
print them.
Recommendation
• Most laser printers have a restricted area that cannot
be printed on. Usually this is the first two lines and
last two lines of text cannot print (leaving 62
printable lines). Adjust the top and bottom margins
in your document to allow for this.
Copy
Problem
The printer copies, but
nothing is printed on the
copy.
Recommendation
Check the following:
• Original documents are inserted face down in the
document feeder.
• The toner cartridge is not empty.
Some portion of the
image is missing on the
copy.
• The printer has unscannable and unprintable areas.
Check these areas in Chapter 1.
• If the image is larger than the paper size, some of the
image may be lost.
The printer cannot copy
• Select stack mode instead of sort mode.
full pages of a document. • Expand the printer memory by adding a Memory

Scan
Problem
The printer cannot scan.
The Scan to Email and
Scan to File button do
not work.
Recommendation
Check the following:
• The printer is connected directly to the computer.
• The computer can work in bi-directional mode.
• The Scanner driver is correctly selected in your
application.
• A recommended interface cable is being used.
(IEEE 1284 compliant)
Check the following:
(For USA/Canada)
• Make sure to run the “MFL ProControl Center” and
“Brother 3in1 Resource Manger” stay into the Task
Tray.

For DOS users
Problem
The printer prints, but it
prints incorrect
information. Sometimes
it prints a couple of
characters and then ejects
the page, etc..
Recommendation
• This is an indication that your application printer
emulation setting and the printer’s emulation do not
match. Check in your application software which
printer you have selected to make sure the printer is
set up correctly. Remember the printer emulates
widely used printer selections: HP LaserJet 5P
(PCL5e). Try setting the printer into HP emulation
and then select the HP LaserJet 5 printer in your
application software.

IMPORTANT - For Your Safety
To ensure safe operation the three-pin electrical plug supplied must be inserted only
into a standard three-pin power point which is properly grounded through normal
household wiring.
Extension cords used with the equipment must be three-pin plug type and correctly
wired to provide proper grounding. Incorrectly wired extension cords may cause
personal injury and equipment damage.
The fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily does not imply that the power is
grounded and that the installation is completely safe. For your safety, if in any doubt
about the effective grounding of the power, consult a qualified electrician.
Disconnect device
This printer must be installed near a power outlet which is easily accessible. In case of
emergencies, you must disconnect the power cord from the power outlet in order to
shut off power completely.
Geräuschemission / Acoustic Noise Emission (For Germany Only)
Lpa < 70 dB (A) DIN 45635-19-01-KL2
vi
APPENDIX
IMPORTANT - Wiring Information (For U.K. only)
If the power cord supplied with this printer is not suitable for your electrical outlet,
remove the plug from the mains cord and fit an appropriate three pin plug. If the
replacement plug is intended to take a fuse then fit a fuse with the same rating as the
original.
If a moulded plug is severed from the power cord then it should be destroyed because a
plug with cut wires is dangerous if plugged into a live socket outlet. Do not leave it
where a child might find it.
In the event of replacing the plug fuse, fit a fuse approved by ASTA to BS1362 with
the same rating as the original fuse.
Always replace the fuse cover. Never use a plug with the cover omitted.
WARNING - THIS PRINTER MUST BE PROPERLY EARTHED.
The wires in the mains cord are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Green and yellow:
Blue:
Brown:
Ground
Neutral
Live
The colours of the wiring in the power lead of this printer may not correspond with the
markings which identify the terminals in your plug. If you need to fit a different plug,
proceed as follows.
Remove a length of the cord outer sheath, taking care not to damage the coloured
insulation of the wires inside.
Cut each of the three wires to the appropriate length. If the construction of the plug
permits, leave the green and yellow wire longer than the others so that, in the event that
the cord is pulled out of the plug, the green and yellow wire will be the last to
disconnect.
Remove a short section of the coloured insulation to expose the wires.
The wire which is coloured green and yellow must be connected to the terminal in the
plug which is marked with the letter “E” or by the earth symbol or coloured green or
green and yellow.
vii
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter “N” or coloured black or blue.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked
with the letter “L” or coloured red or brown.
The outer sheath of the cord must be secured inside the plug. The coloured wires should
not hang out of the plug.
