BROTHER MULTIFUNCTION CENTER/FACSIMILE MACHINE
LIMITED WARRANTY
(Canada only)
Pursuant to this limited warranty of 1 year from the date of purchase for labour and parts,
Brother International Corporation (Canada) Ltd. (“Brother”), or its Authorized Service
Centers, will repair this MFC/Facsimile machine free of charge if defective in material or
workmanship. This Limited Warranty does not include cleaning, consumables
(including, without limitation, print cartridges, print head, toner and drum) or damage
caused by accident, neglect, misuse or improper installation or operation, any damage
caused from service, maintenance, modifications, or tampering by anyone other than a
Brother Authorized Service Representative, or from the use of supplies or consumable
items that are non-Brother products. Operation of the MFC/Facsimile machine in excess
of the specifications or with the Serial Number or Rating Label removed shall be deemed
abuse and all repairs thereafter shall be the sole liability of the end-user/purchaser. In
order to obtain warranty service, the MFC/Facsimile machine must be delivered or
shipped freight prepaid by the end user/purchaser to a “Brother” Authorized Service
Center, together with your Proof of Purchase in the form of a Sales Receipt.
For laser products: Failure to remove the Toner Cartridge (and Toner Drum Unit on
applicable models) during shipping will cause severe damage to the MFC/Facsimile and
will VOID the Warranty. (Refer to your User’s Guide for proper packaging.)
For ink-jet products: Do not remove the ink cartridges during shipping. Damage to your
print head resulting from packing without the ink cartridges will VOID your warranty.
(Refer to your User’s Guide for proper packaging.)
BROTHER DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED
INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, EXCEPT TO
THE EXTENT THAT ANY WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY LAW CANNOT BE VALIDLY
WAIVED.
No oral or written information, advice or representation provided by Brother, its
Authorized Service Centers, Distributors, Dealers, Agents or employees, shall create
another warranty or modify this warranty. This warranty states Brother’s entire liability
and your exclusive remedy against Brother for any failure of the MFC/Facsimile machine
to operate properly.
Neither Brother nor anyone else involved in the development, production, or delivery of
this MFC/Facsimile machine shall be liable for any indirect, incidental, special,
consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages, including lost profits, arising from the
use of or inability to use the product, even if advised by the end user/purchaser of the
possibility of such damages. Since some Provinces do not allow the above limitation of
liability, such limitation may not apply to you.
This Limited Warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights
which vary from Providence to Providence.
Warranty Service is available at Brother Authorized Service Centers throughout
Canada. For Technical Support or for the name and location of your nearest Authorized
Service Center call 1-877-BROTHER.

Safety precautions
To use the MFC safely
Please refer to these instructions for later reference and before
attempting any maintenance.
WARNING
There are high voltage
electrodes inside the MFC.
Before you clean the MFC,
make sure you have
unplugged the telephone line
cord first and then the power
cord from the AC power outlet.
Do not handle the plug with wet
hands. Doing this might cause
an electrical shock.
To prevent injuries, be careful
not to put your hands on the
edge of the MFC under the
scanner cover.
To prevent injuries, be careful
not to touch the area shaded in
the illustration.
When you move the MFC,
place a hand at each side of the
unit and grasp the grooved
panels so you are supporting
the base when you lift it. (See
the illustration on the right.) Do
not carry the MFC by holding
the scanner cover.
Most of the illustrations in this User’s Guide show the
MFC-5440CN.
vii
WARNING
■ Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines. Never
touch telephone wires or terminals that are not insulated unless
the telephone line has been disconnected at the wall jack. Never
install telephone wiring during a lightning storm. Never install a
telephone wall jack in a wet location.
■ This product must be installed near an AC power outlet that is
easily accessible. In case of emergencies, you must disconnect
the power cord from the AC power outlet in order to shut off
power completely.
■ To reduce the risk of shock or fire, use only a No. 26 AWG or
larger telecommunication line cord.
Caution
■ Lightning and power surges can damage this product! We
recommend that you use a quality surge protection device on the
AC power line and on the telephone line, or unplug the cords
during a lightning storm.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When using your telephone equipment, basic safety
precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of
fire, electric shock and injury to persons, including the
following:
1. Do not use this product near water, for example, near a
bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink or washing machine, in a
wet basement or near a swimming pool.
2. Avoid using this product during an electrical storm. There
may be a remote risk of electric shock from lightning.
3. Do not use this product to report a gas leak in the vicinity
of the leak.
4. Use only the power cord provided with the MFC.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
viii
Choosing a location
Place your MFC on a flat, stable surface that is free of vibration and
shocks, such as a desk. Put the MFC near a telephone wall jack and
a standard, grounded AC power outlet. Choose a location where the
temperature remains between 50°F and 95°F (10°-35°C). To make
sure the ADF can feed the maximum of 35 pages, keep the
temperature between 68°F-86°F (20°-30°C).
Caution
■ Avoid placing your MFC in a high-traffic area.
■ Avoid placing your MFC on the carpet.
■ Do not place near heaters, air conditioners, water, chemicals, or
refrigerators.
■ Do not expose the MFC to direct sunlight, excessive heat,
moisture, or dust.
■ Do not connect your MFC to electrical outlets controlled by wall
switches or automatic timers.
■ Disruption of power can wipe out information in the MFC’s
memory.
■ Do not connect your MFC 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.

INTRODUCTION 1 - 9
About paper
The print quality can be affected by the type of paper you use in the
MFC.
To get the best print quality for the settings you’ve chosen, always
set the Paper Type to match the type of paper you load.
You can use plain paper, inkjet paper (coated paper), glossy paper,
transparencies and envelopes.
We recommend testing various paper types before purchasing large
quantities.
For best results, use the recommended paper.
■ When you print on inkjet paper (coated paper),
transparencies and glossy paper, be sure to select the
proper media in the “Basic” tab of the printer driver or in the
Paper Type setting of the menu (Menu/Set, 1, 2).
■ When you print on Brother glossy paper, load the instruction
sheet included with the glossy paper in the paper tray first,
and then place the glossy paper on the instruction sheet.
■ When you use transparencies or glossy paper, remove each
sheet immediately to prevent smudging or paper jams.
■ Avoid touching the printed surface of the paper immediately
after printing; the surface may not be completely dry and
may stain your fingers.
Recommended Paper
To get the best print quality, we suggest using Brother paper.
(See table below.)
We recommend using “3M Transparency Film” when you print on
transparencies.

1 - 10 INTRODUCTION
Handling and using special paper
■ Store paper in its original packaging, and keep it sealed. Keep the
paper flat and away from moisture, direct sunlight and heat.
■ The coated side of glossy paper is shiny. Avoid touching the
shiny (coated) side. Load glossy paper with the shiny side facing
down.
■ Avoid touching either side of transparencies, because they
absorb water and perspiration easily, and this may cause
decreased output quality. Transparencies designed for laser
printers/copiers may stain your next document. Use only
transparencies recommended for inkjet printing.
Do not use paper:

Do you have Voice Mail on the phone line?
If you have Voice Mail on the phone line where you will install your
new MFC, there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail and the MFC
may conflict with each other while receiving incoming calls.
Why should there be problems?
Since both the MFC and Voice Mail will pick up the call, after the
number of rings you have set, each of them has the ability to keep
the other from receiving calls.
For example, if your Voice Mail is set to answer after two rings and
your MFC is set to answer after four, your Voice Mail will stop your
MFC from receiving faxes.
If you set Voice Mail and the Brother MFC to answer after the same
number of rings, there is no way of knowing which one will answer
first. It is important to remember that neither Voice Mail nor the MFC
can pass the call back to the other after the call has been answered.
How can you avoid possible problems?
A very good way to avoid problems like the one mentioned, is to get
a second phone number on your present phone line.
Many people with Voice Mail choose an alternative service, which is
called “Distinctive Ring”, and they are very satisfied with it.
(See Distinctive Ring on page A-1.)
Another way to avoid possible problems is to replace your Voice Mail
with an answering machine. Your Brother MFC is designed to work
with an answering machine or TAD (telephone answering device).
(See Connecting an external telephone answering device (TAD) on
page A-10.)
1 - 22 INTRODUCTION
Fax tones and handshake
When someone is sending a fax, the MFC sends fax calling tones
(CNG tones). These are quiet, intermittent beeps every 4-seconds.
You’ll hear them after you dial and press Black Start or
Color Start and they will continue for about 60 seconds after
dialing. During that time, the sending machine must begin the
“handshake”, or connection, with the receiving machine.
Each time you use automatic procedures to send a fax, you are
sending CNG tones over the phone line. You will soon learn to listen
for these quiet beeps each time you answer a phone on your fax line,
so you will know if you are receiving a fax message.
The receiving fax responds with fax receiving tones, which are loud,
chirping sounds. A receiving fax chirps for about 40 seconds over the
phone line, and the LCD shows Receiving.
If your MFC is set to the Fax Only mode, it will answer every call
automatically with fax receiving tones. If the other person hangs up,
your MFC will continue to send the “chirps” for about 40 seconds,
and the LCD continues to show Receiving. To cancel receiving,
press Stop/Exit.
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 2 to 4 seconds, so both 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 about 60
seconds after the number is dialed. So it is 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 decide the number of rings before
the call is answered.
INTRODUCTION 1 - 23
ECM (Error Correction Mode)
The Error Correction Mode (ECM) is a way for the MFC to check a
fax transmission while it is in progress. If the MFC detects errors
during fax transmission, it resends the pages of the fax that had an
error. ECM transmissions are only possible between fax machines
that both have this feature. If they do, you may send and receive fax
messages that are continuously being checked by the MFC.
Your MFC must have enough memory for this feature to work.

NOTICE (For USA)
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful
for any person to use a computer or electronic device to send any
message via a telephone fax machine unless such messages
clearly contain, in a margin at the top or bottom of each transmitted
page, or on the first page of the transmission, the date and time it
is sent and an identification of the business or other entity or other
individual sending the message and the telephone number of the
sending machines or such business, other entity or individual.
To program this information into your MFC, see Setting the Date
and Time on page 2-1 and Setting the Station ID on page 2-2.

Fax Only
(automatic receive)
The MFC automatically
answers every call as a
fax.
For dedicated fax lines.
Fax/Tel
(fax and telephone)
The MFC controls the
line and automatically
answers every call. If the
call is a fax it will receive
the fax. If the call is not a
fax it will ring
(pseudo/double ring) for
you to pick up the call.
Use this mode if you expect to receive lots of fax
messages and few telephone calls. You cannot
have an answering machine on the same line, even
if it is on a separate wall jack on the same line. You
cannot use the telephone company’s Voice Mail in
this mode.
External TAD
(with an external
answering device only)
The external answering
device (TAD)
automatically answers
every call.
Voice messages are
stored on the external
TAD. Fax messages are
printed.
Use this mode if you have connected an answering
machine to your MFC.
The External TAD setting works only with an
external answering machine. Ring Delay does not
work in this setting.
Manual
(manual receive)
(with an external or
extension telephone or
with Distinctive Ring)
You control the phone
line and must answer
every call yourself.
Use this mode if you do not receive many fax
messages, with Distinctive Ring, or if you are using
a computer on the same line.
If you answer and hear fax tones, wait until the MFC
takes over the call, then hang up. (See Easy

Dialing options
There are three ways to dial. (See How to dial on page 3-1.)
Access codes and credit card numbers
Sometimes you may want to choose from several long distance
carriers when you make a call. Rates may vary depending on the time
and destination. To take advantage of low rates, you can store the
access codes or long-distance carriers and credit card numbers as
Speed-Dial numbers. You can store these long dialing sequences by
dividing them and setting them up on separate Speed Dial numbers in
any combination. You can even include manual dialing using the dial
pad. (See Storing Speed-Dial numbers on page 5-1.)
For example, perhaps you have stored ‘555’ on Speed-Dial #03 and
‘7000’ on Speed-Dial #02. If you press Search/Speed Dial, #03,
Search/Speed Dial, #02, and Black Start or Color Start, you
will dial ‘555-7000’.
To temporarily change a number, you can substitute part of the
number with manual dialing using the dial pad.
For example, to change the number to 555-7001 you could press
Search/Speed Dial, #03 and then press 7001 using the dialing
pad.
If you must wait for another dial tone or signal at any point in the
dialing sequence, store a pause in the number by pressing
Redial/Pause. Each key press adds a 3.5-second delay.
Pause
Press Redial/Pause to insert a 3.5-second pause between

Walk-Up PhotoCapture
Center™ (MFC-5840CN only)
Introduction
Even if your MFC is not connected to your computer, you can print
photos directly from the digital camera media. Your Brother MFC
includes five media drives (slots) for use with popular digital camera
media: CompactFlash®, SmartMedia®, Memory Stick®,
SecureDigital™, and xD-Picture Card™.
CompactFlash®
(Type Ι only)
SmartMedia®
SecureDigital™
xD-Picture Card™
Memory Stick®
The PhotoCapture Center™ feature lets you print digital photos from
your digital camera at high resolution to get photo quality printing.
■ miniSD™ can be used with miniSD™ adapter.
■ Memory Stick Duo™ can be used with Memory Stick Duo™
adapter.
■ Adapters are not included with the MFC. Contact a third
party supplier for adapters.
You cannot use Tray#2 with the PhotoCapture Center™ feature.
9 - 1 WALK-UP PHOTOCAPTURE CENTER™ (MFC-5840CN ONLY)
PhotoCapture Center™ requirements
To avoid error conditions, please remember:
■ The DPOF file on the media card must be in a valid format.
(See DPOF printing on page 9-8.)
■ The image file extension must be .JPG (Other image file
extensions .JPEG, .TIF, .GIF and so on will not be recognized).
■ Walk-up PhotoCapture Center™ printing must be performed
separately from PhotoCapture Center™ operations using the PC.
(Simultaneous operation is not available.)
■ IBM Microdrive™ is not compatible with the MFC.
■ The MFC can read up to 999 files in a media card.
■ Use only Smart media cards with a 3.3v voltage rating.
■ CompactFlash® Type ΙΙ is not supported.
When printing the INDEX or IMAGE, the PhotoCapture Center™
will print all the valid images, even if one or more images have
been corrupted. A portion of the corrupted image may be printed.
Your MFC is designed to read media cards that have been
formatted by a digital camera.
When a digital camera formats a media card it creates a special
folder into which it copies image data. If you need to modify the
image data stored on a media card with your PC, we
recommend that you do not modify the folder structure created
by the digital camera. When saving new or modified image files
to the media card we also recommend you use the same folder
your digital camera uses. If the data is not saved to the same
folder the MFC may not be able to read the file or print the
image.
WALK-UP PHOTOCAPTURE CENTER™ (MFC-5840CN ONLY) 9 - 2

11 - 11 TROUBLESHOOTING AND ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
DIFFICULTY
SUGGESTIONS
Handling Incoming Calls
MFC ‘Hears’ Voice as CNG
Tone.
If your MFC is set to Easy Receive On, it is more sensitive to sounds.
Your MFC may mistakenly interpret certain voices or music on the line
as a calling fax machine and respond with fax receiving tones.
Deactivate the fax by pressing Stop/Exit. Try avoiding this problem by
turning Easy Receive to Off. (See Easy Receive on page 4-4.)
Transferring a Fax Call to the
MFC.
If you answered on an extension phone, press your Fax Receive Code
(default setting is ( 51). When your MFC answers, hang up.
Custom features on a single
line.
If you have Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, Ring Master, Voice Mail,
an alarm system or any other custom feature on a single phone line with
your MFC, it may create a problem sending or receiving faxes.
For example: If you are sending or receiving a fax message while a
custom feature signal comes through on the line, 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 data
on a single, shared line with custom features. If avoiding a slight
interruption is crucial to your business, we recommend a separate
phone line with no custom features.

How to improve print quality
Cleaning the print head
To ensure good print quality, the MFC will regularly clean the print
head. You can start the cleaning process manually if needed.
Clean the print head and ink cartridges if you get a horizontal line in
the text or graphics on your printed pages. You can clean Black only
or three colors at a time (Cyan/Yellow/Magenta), or all four colors at
once.
Cleaning the print head consumes ink. Cleaning too often uses ink
unnecessarily.
Caution
Do NOT touch the print head. Touching the print head may cause
permanent damage and may void the print head’s warranty.

■ If ink stains your skin or clothing, wash with soap or detergent
immediately.
■ If you install an ink cartridge in the wrong color position, you must
clean the print head several times before you start printing (after
correcting the cartridge installation) because the colors were
mixed.
■ Once you open an ink cartridge, install it in the MFC and use it up
within six months of installation. Use unopened ink cartridges by
the expiration date written on the cartridge package.
■ Do not dismantle or tamper with the ink cartridge, this can cause
the ink to leak out of the cartridge.
■ Brother strongly recommends that you do not refill the ink
cartridges provided with your machine. We also strongly
recommend that you continue to use only Genuine Brother Brand
replacement ink cartridges. Using or attempting to use potentially
incompatible inks and/or cartridges in your machine may cause
damage to the machine itself and/or it may result in unsatisfactory

A Appendix A
Setting up telephone services
Your MFC supports the Distinctive Ring and Caller ID subscriber
telephone services that some telephone companies offer.
If you have Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID,
RingMaster, an answering service, an alarm system or other
custom features on your telephone line, it may affect the way
your MFC works. (See Custom features on page 1-22 and
Custom features on a single line. on page 11-12.)
If you have Voice Mail on your phone line, please read the
following carefully.
Distinctive Ring
Brother uses the term ‘Distinctive Ring’ but different telephone
companies have other names for this service such as SmartRing,
RingMaster, Teen-Ring, Indent-a-Call or Indent-a-Ring.
What does your telephone company’s ‘Distinctive Ring’ do?
Your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring service allows you to
have more than one number on the same phone line. If you need
more than one phone number, it is cheaper than paying for an
extra line. Each phone number has its own distinctive ring pattern,
so you will know which phone number is ringing. This is one way you
can have a separate phone number for your MFC.
Please call your telephone company for availability and rates.
A - 1 APPENDIX A
What does Brother’s ‘Distinctive Ring’ do?
The Brother MFC has a Distinctive Ring feature that allows you to
use your MFC to take full advantage of the telephone company’s
Distinctive Ring service. The new phone number on your line can just
receive faxes.
You must pay for your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring
service before you program the MFC to work with it.
Do you have Voice Mail?
If you have Voice Mail on the phone line that you will install your new
MFC on, there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail and the MFC will
conflict with each other while receiving incoming calls. However, the
Distinctive Ring feature allows you to use more than one
number on your line, so both Voice Mail and the MFC can work
together without any problems. If each one has a separate phone
number, neither will interfere with the other’s operations.
If you decide to get the Distinctive Ring service from the telephone
company, you will need to follow the directions below to ‘register’ the
new Distinctive Ring pattern they give you. This is so your MFC can
recognize its incoming calls.
You can change or cancel the Distinctive Ring pattern at any
time. You can switch it off temporarily, and turn it back on later.
When you get a new fax number, make sure you reset this
feature.
APPENDIX A A - 2
Before you choose the ring pattern to register
You can only register one Distinctive Ring pattern with the MFC.
Some ring patterns cannot be registered. The ring patterns below are
supported by your Brother MFC. Register the one your telephone
company gives you.
Ring
Pattern
Rings
1
long-long
2
short-long-short
3
short-short-long
4
very long (normal pattern)
If the ring pattern you received is not on this chart, please call
your telephone company and ask for one that is shown.
■ The MFC will only answer calls to its registered number.
■ The first two rings are silent on the MFC. This is because the fax
must «listen» to the ring pattern (to compare it to the pattern that
was ‘registered’). (Other telephones on the same line will ring.)
■ If you program the MFC properly, it will recognize the registered
ring pattern of the ‘fax number’ within 2 ring patterns and then
answer with a fax tone. When the ‘voice number’ is called, the
MFC will not answer.
A - 3 APPENDIX A
Registering the Distinctive Ring pattern
Very important!
After you have set the Distinctive Ring feature to ON, the receive
mode is set to Manual automatically. Unless you have a TAD or
Voice Mail set up on the Distinctive Ring number, Manual mode

Caller ID
The Caller ID feature lets you use the Caller ID subscriber
service offered by many local telephone companies. This
service displays the telephone number, or name if it is available,
of your caller as the line rings.
After a few rings, the LCD shows the telephone number of your caller
(and name, if available). Once you pick up the handset, the Caller ID
information disappears from the LCD, but the call information
remains stored in the Caller ID memory.
■ You will see the first 16 characters of the number (or name).
■ Out of Area display means call originated outside your Caller
ID service area.

Advanced receiving operations
Operation from extension telephones
If you answer a fax call on an extension telephone, or an external
telephone in the EXT. jack of the MFC, you can make your MFC take
the call by using the Fax Receive Code. When you press the Fax
Receive Code 51, the MFC starts to receive a fax. (See Easy
Receive on page 4-4.)
If the MFC answers a voice call and pseudo/double-rings for you to
take over, use the Telephone Answer Code #51 to take the call at an
extension phone. (See Setting the F/T Ring Time (Fax/Tel mode
only) on page 4-3.)
If you answer a call and no one is on the line, you should assume that
you’re receiving a manual fax.
■ Press 51 and wait for the chirp or until the MFC’s LCD displays
Receiving, and then hang up.
Your caller will have to press Start to send the fax.
Fax/Tel mode when power key is On
When the MFC is in Fax/Tel mode, it will use the F/T Ring Time
(pseudo/double-ringing) to alert you to pick up a voice call.
If you are at an extension phone, you’ll need to lift the handset during
the F/T Ring Time and then press #51 between the pseudo/double
rings. If no one is on the line, or if someone wants to send you a fax,
send the call back to the MFC by pressing 51.
Fax/Tel mode when power key is Off
Fax/Tel mode does not work when the power button is off. The MFC
will not answer telephone or fax calls and will keep ringing. If you are
at an external or extension phone, lift the handset of the extension
phone and talk. If you hear fax tones, hold the handset until Easy
Receive activates your MFC. If the other party says they want to
send you a fax, activate the MFC by pressing 51.
A - 7 APPENDIX A
Using a cordless external handset
If your cordless telephone is connected to the EXT. jack on the MFC
and you typically carry the cordless handset elsewhere, it is easier to
answer calls during the Ring Delay. If you let the MFC answer first,
you will have to go to the MFC so you can press Hook to transfer the
call to the cordless handset.

Remote Codes might not work with some telephone systems. The
preset Fax Receive Code is 51. The preset Telephone Answer

When you are using a TAD, the LCD shows Telephone.
A - 9 APPENDIX A
Connecting an external telephone answering
device (TAD)
Sequence
You may choose to connect an additional answering device.
However, when you have an external TAD on the same telephone
line as the MFC, the TAD answers all calls and the MFC “listens” for
fax calling (CNG) tones. If it hears them, the MFC takes over the call
and receives the fax. If it does not hear CNG tones, the MFC lets the
TAD continue playing your outgoing message so your caller can
leave you a voice message.
The TAD must answer within four rings (the recommended setting is
two rings). The MFC cannot hear CNG tones until the TAD has
answered the call, and with four rings there are only 8 to 10 seconds
of CNG tones left for the fax “handshake”. Make sure you carefully
follow the instructions in this guide for recording your outgoing
message. We do not recommend using the toll saver feature on your
external answering machine if it exceeds five rings.
If you do not receive all your faxes, reduce the Ring Delay
setting on your external TAD.
If You Subscribe to your Telephone Company’s Distinctive Ring
Service:
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
MFC, and use that number as a fax number. The recommended
setting is at least four rings on the external TAD when you have
the telephone company’s Distinctive Ring Service. You cannot
use the Toll Saver setting.
APPENDIX A A - 10
If You Do Not Subscribe to Distinctive Ring Service:
You must plug your TAD into the EXT. jack of your MFC. If your
TAD is plugged into a wall jack, both your MFC and the TAD will
try to control the phone line. (See illustration below.)
Unless you are using Distinctive Ring, do not connect a
TAD elsewhere on the same phone line.

Record 5 seconds of silence at the beginning of your message.
(This allows your MFC time to listen for the fax CNG tones of
automatic transmissions before they stop.)
Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
End your 20-second message by giving your Fax Receive Code
for people sending manual faxes. For example:
“After the beep, leave a message or send a fax by pressing
51 and Start.”
We recommend beginning your OGM with an initial 5-second
silence because the MFC cannot hear fax tones over a resonant
or loud voice. You may try omitting this pause, but if your MFC has
trouble receiving, then you must re-record the OGM to include it.
APPENDIX A A - 12
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 MFC 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
MFC on any of the other numbers; when the other lines are busy and
a second fax call is received, the fax call would be transferred to a
line that does not have a fax machine. Your MFC 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 MFC
must be plugged into an RJ11 jack. RJ11 and RJ14 jacks may be
equal in size and appearance and both may contain four 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 MFC. (See Easy Receive on page 4-4.)
A - 13 APPENDIX A
Converting telephone wall outlets
There are three ways to convert to an RJ11 jack. 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 MFC is on Line 1, plug the MFC into L1 of the triplex
adapter. If your MFC is on Line 2, plug it into L2 of the triple adapter.

APPENDIX A A - 14
Installing MFC, 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 MFC must be isolated
on one line at both the wall jack and at the TAD. The most common
connection is to put the MFC on Line 2, which is explained 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 MFC and two for your external two-line TAD. You will need
a fourth line cord if you add a two-line telephone.

4
Place the two-line TAD and the two-line telephone next to your
MFC.
Plug one end of the telephone line cord for your MFC into the L2
jack of the triplex adapter. Plug the other end into the LINE jack
on the back of the MFC.
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.
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 MFC.

External Two Line TAD
Two Line Phone
MFC
You can keep two-line telephones on other wall outlets as always.
There are two ways to add a two-line telephone to the MFC’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.
A - 15 APPENDIX A
Multi-line connections (PBX)
Most offices use a central telephone system. While it is often
relatively simple to connect the MFC 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 MFC for you. It is advisable to have a separate line for
the MFC.
If the MFC 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.
If you are installing the MFC to work with a PBX
1
2
It is not guaranteed that the unit will operate properly under all
circumstances with a PBX. Any cases of difficulty should be
reported first to the company that handles your PBX.
If all incoming calls will be answered by a switchboard operator,
it is recommended that the Receive Mode be set to Manual. All
incoming calls should initially be regarded as telephone calls.
Custom features on your phone line
If you have Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID,
RingMaster, an answering service, an alarm system or other custom
feature on one phone line it may create a problem with the operation
of your MFC. (See Custom features on page 1-22 and Custom
features on a single line. on page 11-12.)
APPENDIX A A - 16
B Appendix B
On-screen programming
Your MFC is designed to be easy to use with LCD on-screen
programming using the navigation keys. User-friendly programming
helps you take full advantage of all the menu selections your MFC
has to offer.
Since your programming is done on the LCD, we have created
step-by-step on-screen instructions to help you program your MFC.
All you need to do is follow the instructions as they guide you through
the menu selections and programming options.
Menu table
You can probably program your MFC without the User’s Guide if you
use the Menu table that begins on page B-3. These pages will help
you understand the menu selections and options that are found in the
MFC’s programs.
You can program your MFC by pressing Menu/Set, followed by
the menu numbers.
For example to set Fax Resolution to Fine:
Press Menu/Set, 2, 2, 2 and ▲ or ▼ to select Fine.
Press Menu/Set.
Memory storage
If there is a power failure, you will not lose your menu settings
because they are stored permanently. Temporary settings (such as
Contrast, Overseas Mode, and so on) will be lost. You may also have
to reset the date and time.

Consumable items
Ink
The MFC uses individual Black, Yellow, Cyan and
Magenta ink cartridges that are separate from the
print head assembly.
Service Life of Ink
Cartridge
Standard Black - Approximately 500 pages at 5%
coverage
High Yield Black - Approximately 900 pages at 5%
coverage
Yellow, Cyan and Magenta - Approximately 400
pages at 5% coverage
The above figures are based upon the following
assumptions:
• Continuous printing at a resolution of 600 x 600
dpi in normal mode after installing new ink
cartridge;
• The printing frequency;
• The number of pages printed;
• Periodic, automatic, print head assembly cleaning
(Your MFC will clean the print head assembly
periodically. This process will use a small amount
of ink); and,
• Ink remaining in cartridge identified as “empty”
(It is necessary to leave a small amount of ink in
the ink cartridge to prevent air from drying out and
damaging the print head assembly).
