For Your Safety
To ensure safe operation, the three-pin plug supplied must be inserted only into a standard
three-pin power point which is effectively grounded through the normal household wiring.
Extension cords used with the equipment must be three-conductor and be correctly wired to
provide connection to ground. Incorrectly wired extension cords are a major cause of fatalities.
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
The equipment must be installed near the socket outlet which must be easily accessible.

Canadian Department of Communications Compliance Statement
This digital apparatus does not exceed the Class B limits for radio noise emissions from
digital apparatus as set out in the interference-causing equipment standard entitled “Digital
Apparatus”, ICES-003 of the Department of Communications.
IMPORTANT (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 the same fuse 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.
ix
English
USER’S GUIDE
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.
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.

System Requirements
Check the following system requirements to setup and operate the printer:
• IBM PC or compatible with 80486 SX or higher microprocessor
• Parallel interface (or printer port)
• 4 MB or more of memory
• 10 MB of space available on your hard disk for the printer driver and all
fonts
• Microsoft Windows 3.1/3.11
☛ Caution
This printer has been designed specially for Windows 3.1. It cannot work
in a DOS environment, such as MS-DOS.
Features
This printer has the following features:
❏ 600 dpi Resolution and 6 ppm Printing Speed
600 dots per inch (dpi) with microfine toner and six pages per minute
(ppm) printing speed (A4 or Letter size paper).
❏ User-Friendly Operation for Windows
The dedicated printer driver and TrueType™-compatible fonts for
®
Microsoft Windows 3.1 are available on the floppy disk 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 printing speed in Windows applications

USER’S GUIDE
❏ Versatile Paper Handling
The printer has a multi-purpose sheet feeder and straight paper path.
Using this mechanism, you can load A4, letter, legal, B5, A5, and
executive sizes of paper, as well as various other paper sizes including
envelopes, postcards, organizer paper, or a custom paper size.
The multi-purpose sheet feeder also allows manual paper loading for
printing labels and transparencies.
❏ APT (Advanced Photoscale Technology)
The APT feature of the printer driver allows you to print photographs
with photographic quality output.
❏ Auto Resolution Reduction
When a printout is requested in 600 dpi mode with the standard
amount of printer memory, the printer might not be able to print at
600 dpi due to insufficient memory. To prevent this memory error, the
printer driver automatically reduces the resolution to 300 dpi or less
for successful printing.
❏ Environment-Friendly, Economy Printing Mode
This feature will cut your printing cost by saving toner. It is useful to
obtain draft copies for proof-reading. You can select from two
economy modes—25% toner saving and 50% toner saving—through
the Windows printer driver supplied with your printer.
❏ Sleep Mode
Sleep mode automatically reduces power consumption when the
printer is not in use. The printer consumes less than 8W when in sleep
mode. The time-out for auto sleep mode can be set through the
Windows printer driver.
❏ Low Running Cost
The toner cartridge is separate from the drum unit. Each toner
cartridge will give you approximately 3,000 pages, which is cost
effective and ecologically friendly. (In some areas the printer is
supplied with a starter toner cartridge which must be replaced after
1,000 pages.)

Two Side Printing (Manual Duplexing)
The supplied printer driver for Windows 3.1 enables manual duplex
printing. For more information about settings, see the help text of the
printer driver which can be accessed through the Windows Control Panel.
The printer prints all the even numbered pages on one side of the paper
first and then prints all the odd pages on the reverse side of the paper.
When you have finished printing on one side of the paper, the driver
instructs you to re-insert the paper by a pop-up message on the computer.
Follow the instructions on how to reinsert the paper.
☛ Caution
• Before re-inserting the paper, you have to straighten it well or you
may get paper misfeed errors.
• Use of very thin or very thick paper is not recommended.
• If you find that more than one sheet is fed through at one time, we
recommend that you hold all the paper in the sheet feeder except for
the front sheet so the printer will feed just one sheet.

READY↔
↔SLEEP Switch
This printer has a READY↔SLEEP switch on the control panel.
Fig. 3-2 Switch on Control Panel
✒ Note
• This printer has no power switch. You just plug the power cord into
the AC outlet. The sleep mode feature controls all power.
• If a recoverable error, such as cover open or paper empty should
occur, take the appropriate action to correct it. The printer should
automatically recover from the error without unplugging the printer.
The READY↔SLEEP switch can work in two ways: to enter sleep mode
or to print a test page.
Sleep Mode
Sleep mode causes the printer to act as though it has been turned off.
While the printer is in sleep mode, all the lamps are off, however the
printer can still receive data from the computer.
If you press the READY↔SLEEP switch when the Ready light is a solid
green, the printer enters sleep mode.
If you press the READY↔SLEEP switch during printing, the printer
immediately stops printing, even if it has started a print job. It ejects the
page, then enters sleep mode.
☛ Caution
Remember that the READY↔SLEEP switch clears data from the printer
memory and puts the printer into sleep mode.
3–2
English
CHAPTER 3 PRINTER CONTROL
When the printer is in the Ready mode and the printer does not receive
data for a certain period of time (time-out), it automatically enters sleep
mode. The default time-out has been factory set for 5 to 15 minutes.
To awaken the printer to Ready status, press the READY↔SLEEP switch
again. Receiving a document automatically awakens the printer and
causes it to start printing.
✒ Note
• This printer has no power switch. The sleep mode handles the power
control.
• When the printer first enters sleep mode, the fan will not stop until the
printer engine has cooled down.
• Sleep mode allows the print engine to cool, so the temperature of your
room and the amount of time the printer has been in sleep mode
affects the warm-up time. Warm-up time can take about 60 seconds.
The READY lamp blinks to indicate that the printer is warming up.
• You can change the time-out for sleep mode with the printer driver.
For more information, open the Setup dialog box of your printer
driver in the Windows Control Panel and choose Help or press the F1
key.
Test Page
When you hold down the READY↔SLEEP switch for about 3 seconds,
the printer will print a test page. You can check the print condition or
print quality with it.

Questions
The printer does not load
paper.
The printer does not load
paper from the manual
feed slot.
How can I load
envelopes?
What kind of paper can I
use?
How can I clear paper
jams?
Recommendations
• Check to see if the “Paper Empty” message
appears on your computer screen or the
ALARM lamp is blinking on the printer
control panel. If so, the multi-purpose sheet
feeder may be out of paper or not properly
installed. If it is empty, load a new stack of
paper into the feeder.
• If there is paper in the multi-purpose sheet
feeder, make sure it is straight. If the paper is
curled, you should straighten it before
printing. Sometimes it is helpful to remove
the paper, turn the stack over and replace it
in the paper tray.
• Reduce the stack of paper in the multipurpose sheet feeder, then try again.
Re-insert the paper firmly, one sheet at a time.
You can load envelopes from either the multipurpose sheet feeder or the manual feed slot.
Your application software must be set up
correctly to print on the envelope size you are
using. This is usually done in the page setup or
document setup menu of your software. Refer to
your application user's guide for instructions.
You can use plain paper, envelopes,
transparencies, labels, and organizer paper. For
information on loading paper, see “Paper

CHAPTER 6 TROUBLESHOOTING
Certain environmental conditions such as humidity, high temperatures,
etc. may cause the following situation to occur.
Printed pages are blurred
at the center or either
edge.
• Make sure that the printer is placed on a flat,
horizontal surface.
• Remove the drum unit with the toner
cartridge installed. Hold the unit up 20 mm
at a 45 degree with both hands. Tap it firmly
against a flat surface a few times and then
shake it sideways gently 5 or 6 times. Reinstall the drum/toner unit and try printing
again. If the print quality is not acceptable,
please contact Brother customer service or
your local authorized service center for
further assistance.
• You may clear the problem by wiping the
scanner windows with a soft cloth. (See
"Cleaning the printer interior and Drum
unit.") If the same problem occurs after
cleaning, replace the drum unit with a new
one.
