„ This limited warranty (“warranty”) is given
only to the original end-use/retail purchaser
(referred to in this warranty as “Original
Purchaser”) of the accompanying product,
consumables and accessories (collectively
referred to in this warranty as “this
Product”).
„ If you purchased a product from someone
other than an authorized Brother reseller in

purchase you are not the Original
Purchaser and the product that you
purchased is not covered by this warranty.

Consumable and Accessory Items include
but are not limited to print heads, toner,

Brother warrants that the Machine and the
accompanying
Consumable
and
Accessory Items will be free from defects in
materials and workmanship, when used
under normal conditions.
„ This warranty applies only to products
purchased and used in the United States.
For products purchased in, but used
outside, the United States, this warranty
covers only warranty service within the
United States (and does not include
shipping outside the United States).
What is the length of the Warranty Periods:
„ Machines: one year from the original

purchase date or the rated life of
consumable, whichever comes first.

2 Damage caused by improper installation,
improper or abnormal use, misuse, neglect
or accident (including but not limited to
transporting this Product without the proper
preparation and/or packaging);
3 Damage caused by another device or
software used with this Product (including
but not limited to damage resulting from
use of non Brother®-brand parts and

4 Consumable and Accessory Items that
expired in accordance with a rated life; and,
5 Problems arising from other than defects in

6 Normal Periodic Maintenance Items, such

Units.
This limited warranty is VOID if this Product
has been altered or modified in any way
(including but not limited to attempted warranty
repair without authorization from Brother
and/or alteration/removal of the serial
number).
What to do if you think your Product is
eligible for warranty service:
Report your issue to either our Customer
Service Hotline at 1-800-284-4329 for Fax,
MFC and DCP and 1-800-276-7746 for
Printers, or to a Brother Authorized Service
Center within the applicable warranty
period. Supply Brother or the Brother
Authorized Service Center with a copy of your
dated bill of sale showing that this Product was
purchased within the U.S. For the name of
local Brother Authorized Service Center(s),
call 1-800-521-2846.
What Brother will ask you to do:
After contacting Brother or a Brother
Authorized Service Center, you may be
required to deliver (by hand if you prefer) or
send the Product properly packaged, freight
prepaid, to the Authorized Service Center
together with a photocopy of your bill of sale.
You are responsible for the cost of
shipping, packing product, and insurance
(if you desire). You are also responsible for
loss or damage to this Product in shipping.
What Brother will do:
If the problem reported concerning your
Machine and/or accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items is covered by this
warranty and if you first reported the problem
to Brother or an Authorized Service Center
within the applicable warranty period, Brother
or its Authorized Service Center will repair or
replace the Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items at no
charge to you for parts or labor. The decision
as to whether to repair or replace the Machine
and/or accompanying Consumable and
Accessory Items is made by Brother in its sole
v
Brother® One Year Limited Warranty and Replacement Service
(USA only)
discretion. Brother reserves the right to supply
a refurbished or remanufactured replacement
Machine and/or accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items and use refurbished
parts provided such replacement products
conform to the manufacturer's specifications
for new product/parts. The repaired or
replacement Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items will be
returned to you freight prepaid or made
available for you to pick up at a conveniently
located Authorized Service Center.
If the Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items are not
covered by this warranty (either stage), you
will be charged for shipping the Machine
and/or accompanying Consumable and
Accessory Items back to you and charged for
any service and/or replacement parts/products
at Brother's then current published rates.
The foregoing are your sole (i.e., only) and
exclusive remedies under this warranty.
What happens when Brother elects to
replace your Machine:
When a replacement Machine is authorized by
Brother, and you have delivered the Machine
to an Authorized Service Center, the
Authorized Service Center will provide you
with a replacement Machine after receiving
one from Brother. If you are dealing directly
with Brother, Brother will send to you a
replacement Machine with the understanding
that you will, after receipt of the replacement
Machine, supply the required proof of
purchase information, together with the
Machine that Brother agreed to replace. You
are then expected to pack the Machine that
Brother agreed to replace in the package from
the replacement Machine and return it to
Brother using the pre-paid freight bill supplied
by Brother in accordance with the instructions
provided by Brother. Since you will be in
possession of two machines, Brother will
require that you provide a valid major credit
card number. Brother will issue a hold against
the credit card account number that you
provide until Brother receives your original
Product and determines that your original
Product is entitled to warranty coverage. Your
credit card will be charged up to the cost of a
new Product only if: (i) you do not return your
original Product to Brother within five (5)
business days; (ii) the problems with your
original Product are not covered by the limited
warranty;
(iii) the proper packaging
instructions are not followed and has caused
damage to the product; or (iv) the warranty
period on your original Product has expired or
has not been sufficiently validated with a copy
of the proof of purchase (bill of sale). The
replacement Machine you receive (even if
refurbished or remanufactured) will be
covered by the balance of the limited warranty
period remaining on the original Product, plus
an additional thirty (30) days. You will keep the
replacement Machine that is sent to you and
your original Machine shall become the
property of Brother. Retain your original
Accessory Items and a copy of the return
freight bill, signed by the courier.
Limitations:
Brother is not responsible for damage to or
loss of any equipment, media, programs or
data related to the use of this Product. Except
for that repair or replacement as described
above, Brother shall not be liable for any
direct, indirect, incidental or consequential
damages or specific relief. Because some
states do not allow the exclusion or limitation
of consequential or incidental damages, the
above limitation may not apply to you.
THIS WARRANTY IS GIVEN IN LIEU OF ALL
OTHER WARRANTIES, WRITTEN OR
ORAL,
WHETHER
EXPRESSED
BY
AFFIRMATION, PROMISE, DESCRIPTION,
DRAWING, MODEL OR SAMPLE. ANY AND
ALL WARRANTIES OTHER THAN THIS
ONE, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE HEREBY
DISCLAIMED.
„ This Limited Warranty is the only warranty
that Brother is giving for this Product. It is
the final expression and the exclusive and
only statement of Brother's obligations to
you. It replaces all other agreements and
understandings that you may have with
Brother or its representatives.
„ This warranty gives you certain rights and
you may also have other rights that may
vary from state to state.
„ This Limited Warranty (and Brother's
obligation to you) may not be changed in
any way unless you and Brother sign the
same piece of paper in which we (1) refer
to this Product and your bill of sale date, (2)
describe the change to this warranty and
(3) agree to make that change.
Important:
We recommend that you keep all original
packing materials, in the event that you ship
this Product.

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.

Handling and using media
„ 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 photo paper is shiny.
Avoid touching the shiny (coated) side.
Load photo 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.

Your machine supports the Caller ID and
Distinctive Ring subscriber telephone
services that some telephone companies
offer.
Note
You must pay for your telephone
company's Distinctive Ring service before
you program the machine to work with it.
7
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
machine.
Note
Please call your telephone company for
availability and rates.
7
The Brother machine has a Distinctive Ring
feature that allows you to use your machine to
take full advantage of the telephone
company's Distinctive Ring service. The new
phone number on your line can just receive
faxes.
Features like Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Call
Waiting/Caller ID, RingMaster, answering
services, alarm systems or other custom
features on one phone line may affect the
way your machine works. If you have Voice
Mail on your phone line, please read the
following carefully.
Distinctive Ring
What does Brother's ‘Distinctive Ring’
do?
7
Do you have Voice Mail?
7
If you have Voice Mail on the phone line that
you will install your new machine on, there is
a strong possibility that Voice Mail and the
machine 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 machine 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 on next page to
‘register’ the new Distinctive Ring pattern
they give you. This is so your machine can
recognize its incoming calls.
Note
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.

Connecting an external
TAD (telephone
answering device)
You may choose to connect an external
answering device. However, when you have
an external TAD on the same telephone line
as the machine, the TAD answers all calls
and the machine ‘listens’ for fax calling (CNG)
tones. If it hears them, the machine takes
over the call and receives the fax. If it does
not hear CNG tones, the machine 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
machine 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.
Note
• 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 machine,
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.
38
• If You Do Not Subscribe to Distinctive
Ring Service:
You must plug your TAD into the EXT.
jack of your machine. If your TAD is
plugged into a wall jack, both your
machine and the TAD will try to control the
phone line. (See illustration below.)

Connections
The external TAD must be plugged into the
jack labeled EXT. Your machine cannot work
properly if you plug the TAD into a wall jack
(unless you are using Distinctive Ring).
a
Plug the telephone line cord from the
telephone wall jack into the jack labeled
LINE.
b
Plug the telephone line cord from the
external TAD into the jack labeled EXT.
(Make sure this cord is connected to the
TAD at the TAD's telephone line jack,
and not its handset jack.)

Telephone Services and External devices
c
Set your external TAD to four rings or
less. (The machine's Ring Delay setting
does not apply.)
d
Record the outgoing message on your
external TAD.
e
f
Set the TAD to answer calls.
Set the Receive Mode to External
TAD. (See Choosing the Receive Mode
on page 30.)
Recording an outgoing
message (OGM) on an
external TAD
Timing is important in recording this
message. The message sets up the ways to
handle both manual and automatic fax
reception.
a
Record 5 seconds of silence at the
beginning of your message. (This allows
your machine time to listen for the fax
CNG tones of automatic transmissions
before they stop.)
b
c
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 l 5 1 and Start.’
Note
We recommend beginning your OGM with
an initial 5-second silence because the
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.
Special line considerations
7
Roll over phone lines
7
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 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 machine on any of the other numbers;
when the other lines are busy and a second
fax call is received, the fax call will be sent to
a line that does not have a fax machine. Your
machine will work best on a dedicated
line.
Two-line phone system
7
7
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 mixed into one
jack (RJ14). Your machine 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 twoline phone and see if it can access both lines.
If it can, you must separate the line for your
machine. (See Easy Receive on page 32.)
Converting telephone wall outlets
7
There are three ways to convert to an RJ11
jack. The first two ways may require help 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.
39
Chapter 7
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
machine is on Line 1, plug the machine into
L1 of the triplex adapter. If your machine is on
Line 2, plug it into L2 of the triple adapter.
Triplex Adapter
7
a
Put the two-line TAD and the two-line
telephone next to your machine.
b
Plug one end of the telephone line cord
for your machine into the L2 jack of the
triplex adapter. Plug the other end into
the LINE jack on the back of the
machine.
c
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.
d
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
machine.

Installing 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 machine must be
isolated on one line at both the wall jack and
at the TAD. The most common connection is
to put the machine 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 machine and two for your external twoline TAD. You will need a fourth line cord if
you add a two-line telephone.

You can keep two-line telephones on other
wall outlets as always. There are two ways to
add a two-line telephone to the 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.
Telephone Services and External devices
Multi-line connections (PBX)
We suggest you ask the company who
installed your PBX to connect your machine.
If you have a multi line system we suggest
you ask the installer to connect the unit to the
last line on the system. This prevents the
machine being activated each time the
system receives telephone calls. If all
incoming calls will be answered by a
switchboard operator we recommend that
you set the Receive Mode to Manual.

CAUTION
DO NOT unplug the power cord or remove
the media card from the media drive (slot)
while the machine is reading or writing to
the card (the PhotoCapture key is

Please be aware of the following:
„ 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 machine 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 machine may not be
able to read the file or print the image.

Handling Incoming Calls
Difficulty
Suggestions
The machine ‘Hears’ a voice as a
CNG Tone.
If Easy Receive 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 Easy Receive to off. ( See Easy
Receive on page 32.)
Sending a Fax Call to the machine.
If you answered at the machine, press Black Start and hang up at once. If you
answered on an external or extension phone, press your Fax Receive 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, Voice Mail, an alarm system or
other custom feature on a single phone 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
it 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 phone line with no custom features is
recommended.
Menu Setting Difficulties

Troubleshooting and Routine Maintenance
Note
If the LCD shows Install after you
install the ink cartridges, check that the ink
cartridges are installed properly.
WARNING
If ink gets in your eyes, wash them out with
water at once and call a doctor if you are
concerned.
CAUTION
DO NOT take out ink cartridges if you do
not need to replace them. If you do so, it
may reduce the ink quantity and the
machine will not know the quantity of ink left
in the cartridge.
DO NOT touch the cartridge insertion slots.
If you do so, the ink may stain your skin.
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. Use or attempted use of
potentially incompatible ink and/or
cartridges in the Brother machine may
cause damage to the machine and/or may
result in unsatisfactory print quality. Our
warranty coverage does not apply to any
problem that is caused by the use of
unauthorized third party ink and/or
cartridges. To protect your investment and
obtain premium performance from the
Brother machine, we strongly recommend
the use of Genuine Brother Supplies.
Cleaning the outside of the
machine
B
CAUTION
If ink stains your skin or clothing, wash with
soap or detergent at once.
If you mix the colors by installing an ink
cartridge in the wrong position, clean the
print head several times after correcting the
cartridge installation.
Once you open an ink cartridge, install it in
the machine and use it up within six months
of installation. Use unopened ink cartridges
by the expiration date written on the
cartridge package.
Use neutral detergents. Cleaning with
volatile liquids such as thinner or benzine
will damage the outside surface of the
machine.
DO NOT use cleaning materials that
contain ammonia.
DO NOT use isopropyl alcohol to remove
dirt from the control panel. It may crack the
panel.
DO NOT dismantle or tamper with the ink
cartridge, this can cause the ink to leak out
of the cartridge.

Consumable items
Ink
The machine uses individual Black, Yellow, Cyan and Magenta ink
cartridges that are separate from the print head assembly.
Service Life of Ink
Cartridge
Starter Ink Cartridges
Standard Black - Approximately 370 pages at 5% coverage
Yellow, Cyan and Magenta - Approximately 240 pages at 5%
coverage
Replacement Ink Cartridges
Standard Black - Approximately 500 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 × 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
machine 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).
