Introduction
Using This Manual
Thank you for purchasing a Brother multifunction center (MFC).
This MFC has been designed to be simple to use, with LCD screen
prompts to guide you through functions. However, you can use your
MFC to its fullest potential by taking a few minutes to read this manual.
Additionally, your MFC has a Help Key for assistance. Press Help/
Broadcast to print a list of basic operational steps and functions.
Finding Information
All chapter headings and subheadings are listed in the Table of Contents.
You will also be able to find information about a specific feature or
function by checking the Index at the back of this manual. Also,
throughout this manual, you will see special symbols alerting you to
important information, cross-references, and warnings. Illustrations of
some screen displays also help you choose the correct key-presses.

Symbols Used In This Manual
Note or additional information.
The MFC may be damaged or may not work
correctly if this is not observed.
Warning. Damage can result if this is not observed.
About Fax Machines
If you are a first-time fax machine user, fax operation might seem a little
mysterious. You will soon get used to the unusual fax tones on your
phone line, and be able to send and receive faxes easily.
Fax Tones and Handshake
When someone is sending a fax, the MFC sends fax calling tones, (CNG
tones)—soft, intermittent beeps at 4-second intervals. You will hear them
when you dial and press Start, and they continue for about 40 seconds
after dialling. During that time, the sending machine must begin the
“handshake” with the receiving machine. Each time you use automatic
procedures to send a fax, you are sending CNG tones over the phone
line. You will soon learn to listen for these soft beeps each time you
answer a phone on your MFC line, so you can know if you are about to
receive a fax message.
The receiving fax responds with fax receiving tones—loud, chirping
sounds. A receiving fax chirps for about 40 seconds over the phone line,
and the screen displays RECEIVING. If your MFC is set to the Fax
mode, it will answer every call automatically with fax receiving tones.
Even if the other party hangs up, your MFC continues to send the
“chirps” for about 40 seconds, and the screen continues to display
RECEIVING. To cancel the receiving mode, press Stop.
INTRODUCTION
When your MFC is in Fax/Tel mode, it answers with a short beep. After
this beep, the fax machine listens for CNG tones, and then responds with
receiving tones if the CNG tones are present. If it is a voice incoming
call, the MFC makes an attention sound.
The fax “handshake” is the time in which the sending machine’s CNG
tones and the receiving machines “chirps” overlap. This must be for at
least 2 to 4 seconds, so the fax machines can understand how each is
sending and receiving the fax. The handshake cannot begin until the call
is answered, and the CNG tones only last for about 40 seconds after the
number is dialled. Therefore, it is important for the receiving machine to
answer the call in as few rings as possible. We suggest 2 rings as the
standard setting.
When you have an external telephone answering device (TAD) on your
MFC line, your TAD will determine the number of rings before the call is
answered. Pay special attention to the directions in the Installation chapter
for connecting a TAD (or answering machine) to your MFC.
ECM (Error Correction Mode)
The Error Correction Mode (ECM) is a way for the MFC to check the
integrity of a fax transmission while it is in progress. ECM transmissions
are possible only between machines that both have the ECM feature. If
they do, you may send and receive fax messages that are continuously
checked for their integrity. Because of this you should send and receive
error free documents, thus avoiding the need to resend.
Sufficient memory must be available in your MFC for this feature to
work.

CHAPTER TWO
Choosing a Location
Place your MFC on a flat, stable surface, such as a desk. Select a place
that is free of vibration and shocks. Locate the MFC near a telephone
socket and a standard, earthed electrical socket. Choose a location where
the temperature remains between 10°C and 32°C (50°–90°F).
Avoid placing your MFC where it may be knocked. 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 as disruption of power can wipe out information in the
unit’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. Ensure the airflow from the fan on the right
hand side of the MFC is not impeded.
Caution
Keep the MFC out of strong light such as direct sunlight.

CHAPTER TWO
NOTICE:
■ The MFC must be fitted with an earthed plug.
■ Since the MFC is earthed via the mains plug, you can protect
yourself from potentially hazardous electrical conditions on the
telephone network by keeping the power to your MFC on when you
connect it to a telephone line. Similarly, you can protect yourself
when you want to move your MFC, by disconnecting the telephone
line first, and then the power cord.
IMPORTANT:
If you need to remove the moulded mains plug in order to fit an appropriate
type, you must discard the moulded plug immediately having cut it off, in
order that it is not inadvertently inserted into a live socket, thus presenting a
shock hazard. The wires in the mains lead of this appliance are coloured in
accordance with the following code.
Green-and-yellow : Earth
Blue
: Neutral
Brown
: Live
As the wires in the mains lead of this apparatus may not correspond with the
coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured green-and-yellow must be connected to the
terminal in the plug which is marked by the letter “E” or by the safety 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.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which
is marked with the letter “L” or coloured red.

CHAPTER TWO
11 Press 1 on the dial pad for each colour, as prompted (for initial setup
only) within 1 minute. The MFC will enter a cleaning cycle for
approximately 6 minutes. The screen alternately displays
CLEANING BLACK and PLEASE WAIT. The ink dot counter
will be set automatically for each colour, so the MFC can warn you
with an error message when ink is running low.
Make sure paper is loaded in the cassette, then press Start within 1
minute.
When the MFC completes the cleaning cycle, the MFC starts
printing the test sheet.
12 Only during initial ink cartridge installation, the screen shows.
PRINT OK?
1.YES 2.NO
Check the print quality of the test sheet. If it is not good, clean the
print head again, by pressing 2. The screen will ask you if the print
quality is OK for each colour. Press 2 for any colour with a problem.
You can choose several colours. After cleaning is finished, press
Start.
The MFC starts printing Test Sheet No. 2.
13 Adjust the Vertical Alignment by following the instructions printed
on the Test Print page.
WARNING
If ink gets in your eyes, flush them with water immediately and seek
medical attention if required.
Caution
■ DO NOT remove ink cartridges if you do not need to replace them.
If you do so, it may reduce the ink quantity and the MFC will not
know the quantity of ink left in the cartridge.
■ DO NOT shake the ink cartridges. If you do so, the ink may spill
when you take off the sealing tape. If ink stains your body or
clothing, wash with soap or detergent immediately.
■ If you install an ink cartridge in the wrong colour position, you must
clean the print head several times after correcting the cartridge
installation and before you start printing because the colours were
mixed.
MFC SETUP AND CONNECTIONS
■ Once you open an ink cartridge, install it in the MFC and use it up
within six months of installation. Use unopened ink cartridge by the
expiry date printed on the cartridge box.
■ DO NOT refill the ink cartridges. Attempting to use refilled
cartridges may cause damage to the print head and will void your
product warranty.
If the INK EMPTY XXXX error message is on the screen display after
you have installed the ink cartridges, check and make sure that the ink
cartridges are installed correctly.
Multi-Line Connections (PABXs)
Most offices use a central telephone system, or PABX. The MFC will
work with most PABX or key systems that allow a two-wire analogue
connection. However, we recommend that you have a separate telephone
line for your MFC. You can then leave the MFC in Fax Mode to receive
faxes any time of day or night.
If you are installing the MFC to work with a PABX:
1 It is not guaranteed that the unit will operate correctly under all
circumstances with a PABX. Any cases of difficulty should be
reported first to the company that handles your PABX.
2 If all incoming calls will be answered by a switchboard operator, it is
recommended that the Answer Mode be set to Manual. All incoming
calls should initially be regarded as telephone calls.
3 The unit may be used with either pulse or tone dialling telephone
service.
Ringer Equivalence Number (REN)
This equipment has a REN value of 1. A BT line has a “bell ringing”
capacity, or REN, of 4. This means that adding downstream-connected
extension telephones and/or extension bells to a total REN of greater
than 4 may cause a reduction in the bell volume. In extreme cases, it
may cause the auto-answer facility of the machine to fail.
Therefore, up to three additional extension telephones (each assuming a
REN of 1), may be connected downstream of your machine. For an
explanation of “downstream connection, read “Using extension
telephones” which follows.
Unless otherwise marked, a telephone provided by BT may be assumed
to have a REN value of 1.
21
22
CHAPTER TWO
Using Extension Telephones
It may be that your premises are already wired with parallel extension
telephones, or you intend to add extension telephones to your line, in
addition to your machine. While the simplest arrangement is
straightforward parallel connection, there are some reasons as to why
this arrangement will cause unsatisfactory service, the most obvious of
which is inadvertent interruption of a facsimile transmission by someone
picking up an extension telephone in order to make an outgoing call.
Additionally, remote activation may not operate reliably in such a simple
configuration.
This machine may also be set to make a delayed transmission (i.e. a
transmission at a pre-set time). This pre-set job may coincide with
someone picking up an extension handset.
Such problems can easily be eliminated however, if you arrange
modification of your extension wiring circuit, such that extension
devices are connected “downstream” of your machine, in a master/slave
configuration. In such a configuration, this machine can always detect
whether a telephone is in use, thus it will not attempt to seize the line
during that time. This is known as “telephone off-hook detection.”
The inadvisable configuration is shown in figure 1 below, and the
recommended master/slave configuration is shown in figure 2.
This new connection configuration can be arranged by your contacting
BT, Kingston upon Hull Telecommunications, your PABX maintainer or
a qualified telephone installation company as appropriate. Simply
explained, the extension telephone circuit should be terminated on a
normal modular plug (BT 431A style), which in turn should be inserted
into the modular socket of the white “T”-shaped connector provided as
part of the line cord assembly.

MFC SETUP AND CONNECTIONS
Connecting an External Telephone
Answering Device (TAD)
Sequence
You might choose to connect an additional answering machine. When
you have an external TAD on the same telephone line as the machine,
the TAD answers all calls. 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 the CNG tones, the machine will not answer the call,
and messages can be left on the TAD by callers in the normal way.
The TAD must answer within a maximum of four rings. However, we
recommend two rings as the TAD setting. The MFC cannot hear CNG
tones until the TAD has answered the call, and with four rings there are
only 8–10 seconds of CNG tones left for the fax “handshake.” Make
sure you carefully follow instructions in this manual for recording your
outgoing message. Do not use a “toll-saver” ring setting on the TAD.
Do not connect a TAD elsewhere on the same phone line—your machine
and TAD will both try to control the line.
Connections
1 You may connect an external TAD to your MFC, as shown below.
2 Set your external TAD to two rings or less. (The MFC’s Ring Delay
setting does not apply).
3 Record the outgoing message (see below).
4 Set the TAD to answer calls.
5 Set Message Storage (Menu, 1, 8, 1) to VOICE:EXT. (Only for
MFC-740)
6 Set the Answer Mode to TAD.
23
24
CHAPTER TWO
Outgoing Message (OGM) of External TAD
Timing is important in recording this message. The message sets up the
ways to handle both manual and automatic fax reception.
1 Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
2 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.)
3 End your 20-second message by giving your Remote Activation
Code for people sending manual faxes. For example:
“After the beep, leave a message or send a fax manually by pressing
51 and Start.”
Please note that some faxes that are sent manually cannot be received
automatically because some fax machines do not send a fax tone in
manual mode. In these cases you must inform callers that they must enter
the remote activation code to send a fax.
Connecting an External Telephone
Your MFC is equipped with a handset that you can use as a regular
phone. However, you can also connect a separate telephone to your
MFC, as shown below.
Whenever this external phone (or TAD) is in use, the screen displays
EXT. TEL IN USE, and, if the MFC’s handset is lifted, an alarm sounds.
To disconnect the call on the external phone and switch to the MFC, lift
the handset and press Tel (for MFC 730 only) or Speaker Phone (for
MFC-740 only).

Paper
The quality of your document can be affected by the kind of paper you
use in the MFC. You can use plain paper, coated paper, transparencies,
glossy paper, organizer paper, and envelopes. We recommend testing
various papers before purchasing large quantities. For best results, use
Brother special coated paper, glossy paper, and transparencies. (See the
page next to front page for information about ordering Brother
accessories).
When you print on coated paper, transparencies, and glossy paper, be
sure to select the correct media in the “Quality/Colour” tab in the printer
driver. When using coated paper or transparencies, avoid stacking by
removing each page after copying or printing.
About Brother Paper
Brother paper is manufactured specifically for this MFC, to provide you
with optimum print quality.

CHAPTER THREE
■ Brother coated (ink jet) paper is coated only on one side. Make sure
this whiter (coated) side is facing up toward you. Therefore, when
loading paper in the paper cassette, make sure that the whiter side
(the coated side) is facing up.
■ The coated side of glossy paper is shiny. Do not touch the shiny side.
Load glossy paper in the feeder with the shiny side facing up toward
you.
■ DO NOT touch the coated side of the paper or either side of
transparencies, because the media absorbs water and perspiration
easily, and this might cause decreased output quality.
■ For optimum output quality, be sure to use paper appropriate for your
resolution setting.
■ Store paper in the original bag, and keep it sealed. Keep the paper
flat and away from moisture and direct sunlight and heat.
■ Transparencies designed for laser printers/copiers may stain your
next document. Use only recommended transparencies for ink jet
printer.

(For Fax/Tel Mode Only)
See
“Operation

this chapter
You need to determine how long the MFC will give its special F/T
pseudo-ring when you have a voice call. This ringing happens after the
initial ringing from the phone company. Only the MFC rings, for 20, 30,
40, or 70 seconds; no other phones on the same line ring the special F/T
pseudo ring. However, you can answer the call on any extension phone
on a separate wall socket on the same line as the MFC.

2 Press or to select how long the MFC will ring to alert you that
you have a voice call.
3 Press Set when the screen displays your selection.
RING TIME:30 SEC
4 Press Stop to exit.
Now, when a call comes in and the MFC is set to Fax/Tel Mode, all
phones on this line will ring the number of times you selected in Ring
Delay.
You can let the MFC pick up and detect if it’s a fax or voice call. If it’s a
fax call, the MFC prints the fax. If it’s a voice call, the MFC signals you
with an F/T pseudo-ring for the length of time you selected in F/T Ring
Time.
Even if the caller hangs up during the F/T pseudo-ringing, the MFC
continues the F/T pseudo-ringing for the set time.
Please note that some faxes cannot be received automatically in Fax/Tel
mode, because some fax machines do not send the standard Group 3
calling tone (“CNG”).

CHAPTER SIX
IMPORTANT! This MFC does not re-generate ringing conditions to any
extension telephones. Any such extension telephones will only ring
during the period set on ring delay.
Recording the Fax/Tel Outgoing Announcement
(F/T MESSAGE) (Only for MFC-740)
This is the announcement played by your MFC (not an external TAD)
when someone calls and your MFC is set to Fax/Tel mode. Although
callers hear your announcement, they cannot leave a message. To erase
the announcement, follow the directions in chapter 12, “Erasing the
Outgoing Message”.

5 Replace the handset. Your announcement is played.
6 Press Stop to exit.
It is not necessary to have an outgoing message. The Fax/Tel mode will
work fine without one. It is only to help the caller understand the status
of your MFC.
For example, you can leave a message that says:
“Hello, please wait, we are trying to connect you. If you wish to send a
fax, please wait until you hear a fax tone and press the Start key, or, press
51 (your three-digit remote activation code) and press the Start key.”

When you use this feature, you don’t have to press Start when you
answer a fax call and hear calling beeps. Just hold the handset and wait
for several seconds. When you see RECEIVING on the MFC screen or
when you hear “chirps” through the handset of an extension phone
connected to another wall jack, just replace the handset, and your MFC
does the rest. Selecting ON allows the MFC to receive fax calls
automatically, even if you lift the handset of an extension or external
phone. Selecting SEMI lets the MFC receive the call only if you’ve
answered it at the MFC. Selecting OFF means you’ll have to activate the
MFC yourself, by pressing Start or by pressing 5 1 if you are not at
your MFC.

If you receive faxes that are split on two pages, change the reduction to
AUTO ––OR–– choose a lower reduction percentage.
NOTE: ■ When you use Auto Reduction to reduce incoming
documents to fit on one page of recording paper, you can do
so only as long as the original document is not longer than
35 cm. If the original is longer than 35 cm, the data will not
be reduced and will carry over to print on a second page.
■ When you use Auto Reduction and you receive an incoming
document that is smaller than your recording paper, no
reduction will take place, and you will get the same size
recorded as the original.

Operation from an External or Extension
Telephone
An external phone is a telephone that is plugged into your MFC (either
into the MFC’s EXT socket or into the back of the connector that plugs
into the telephone wall socket).
See
“F/T Ring
Time”
in this
chapter
An extension phone is another phone on the same phone number as your
MFC, but plugged into a different telephone wall socket. For example,
your MFC may be connected to a phone line in your study, and you may
have another phone on the same line (and same phone number) in your
kitchen. This feature enables you to answer the phone in the kitchen if it
rings while you are making a coffee, knowing that you can transfer the
call to your MFC if the incoming call is a fax.
If you answer a fax call on an external or extension phone, you can make
your MFC take over by using the Activation Code. When you press the
Activation Code 5 1, the MFC starts to receive a fax.
If the MFC answers a voice call and F/T pseudo-rings for you to take
over, use the Deactivation Code # 5 1 to take the call at an extension
phone. The Deactivation Code is used only in Fax/Tel mode.
See
“Outgoing
Message
(OGM) of
External
TAD”
chap. 2
If you answer a call, and no one is on the line, assume you’re receiving a
fax. At the MFC phone, press Start, then hang up. At an extension
phone, press 5 1, wait for fax receiving tones (chirps), then hang up. At
an external phone, press 5 1 and wait for the phone to be disconnected
(the screen displays RECEIVING) before you hang up. (Your caller will
have to press Start to send the fax.)
If you accidentally pick up an extension phone when a fax message is
being received, you may disrupt the transmission or render some portions
unreadable.
The Remote Activation Code also can be used by your callers. When you
are using a external TAD, your outgoing message (OGM) should end
with the statement “to send a fax, press 5 1”.
For Fax/Tel Mode Only
When the MFC is in Fax/Tel mode, it will use the F/T Ring Time (F/T
pseudo-ringing) to alert you to a voice call. If you’re at the MFC, you
can lift the handset to answer.
49
50
CHAPTER SIX
If you’re at an extension phone, you’ll need to lift the handset during the
F/T Ring Time and press # 5 1 between the F/T pseudo-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 5 1.
Changing Remote Codes
Remote Codes might not work with some telephone systems. The preset
Activation Code is 5 1. The preset Deactivation Code is # 5 1.
If you are always disconnected when accessing your external TAD
remotely, try changing the Activation Code from 5 1 to # # # and the
Deactivation Code from # 5 1 to 1 1 1. You cannot use the same number
for the Activation Code and the Deactivation Code.

Caller ID (Caller IDentification) (Only for the UK)
Caller ID is a telephone service that allows the subscriber to see a
display of the caller’s phone number as the telephone rings. It is a fast
way to screen your calls. You can respond quickly to calls you missed,
because Caller IDs are received and stored in your machine’s memory. In
addition to the standard Caller ID features, you can select a Caller ID and
have your machine dial the number for you.
NOTE: ■ To get the Caller ID Service: apply for the Caller ID service
at your local telephone company, if available.
■ To PABX Users :
Calling line identification signals are not generally delivered
to your Brother fax machine if it is connected behind a
private branch exchange (PBX) system or other call routing
device.
Advantages of Caller ID
For Business
All businesses profit from a quicker response to customer calls.
Businesses that provide mail order services, money-lending services or
provide confidential information, can protect themselves from false
orders or acceptance of false identification.
At Home
Residential customers can protect themselves from unwanted calls.
Set the Caller ID to ON
If you have BT Caller ID on your line, then this function should be set to
ON to display the caller’s phone number on the fax LCD as the
telephone rings.
1 Press Menu 1, 0, 2. The screen displays
CALLER ID:ON

CHAPTER SIX
How Does the Caller ID Work?
The Caller ID Appears on the Display When Your
Telephone Rings
As your telephone rings, the display shows you the caller’s phone
number. Once you pick up the handset, the caller’s ID disappears. You
will see up to the first 16 characters of the number on the display.
Helpful Hints
■ If “# UNAVAILABLE” appears on the display, it means that the call
came from outside your caller ID service area. *
■ If “# WITHHELD” appears on the display, it means the caller
intentionally blocked the transmission of his/her ID. *
■ If no caller ID was transmitted to your fax machine, “PICK UP
PHONE” will remain on the display.
* Depends on network Function.
The Caller ID is Stored in Your Machine’s Memory
The machine can store a maximum of the last 30 incoming caller IDs in
the memory, along with the time and date of reception. The 31st call will
cause the oldest ID to be erased.
The Caller ID information stored in the memory can be used for the
following.
■ Selecting a Caller ID from the Memory for Call Reply.
You can scroll through the Caller IDs on the display and select one
for your machine to dial.
■ Printing the Caller ID List.
You can review calls you received by checking the Caller IDs in
memory. This report will list the Date, Time, Phone Number (Caller
ID), and type of call (Comment).
NOTE: Please set up the number of rings to more than 02 in the Ring
Delay (see chap.6) before you use the Caller ID. If you set up
the number of rings to 01, you cannot receive the Caller ID.
SETUP RECEIVE
Selecting a Caller ID from the Memory for Call
Reply
You can display the caller IDs that are stored in the memory and select
the caller you want your machine to dial. Call Reply is a convenient
feature whereby your Brother fax can dial back a voice/fax call “onhook” to the opposite party associated with a Caller ID number which
has been captured into memory. This saves you from having to copy and
dial back to that number manually. (You can skip to Step 4 below by
Pressing the Shift and Tel-Index simultaneously.)

CHAPTER SIX
In certain circumstances, you may not be able to use this feature due to
the type of CALLER ID service or the type of telephone system you or
the other party is using.
To Activate Certain Network Services When Using Call
Reply
It may be desired (in order to activate certain network services), to insert
a special prefix to be dialled in front of the Caller ID number when
using the Call Reply feature. Some examples of such network services
are :
* Your outgoing Caller ID withheld
The required prefix, typically three to six digits (including # and
symbols) in length, may be inserted after displaying the desired Caller ID
in step 4 on the previous page. (You can enter the prefix up to 20 digits
on the machine. ) The complete number string including the prefix will
then be dialled by pressing Start.

To cancel the prefix (such as when you entered the wrong number),
simply press Stop.
The display will return to the desired Caller ID you selected.
-
If you press Stop again, the machine will return to the current date
and time display. You are no longer in the call reply mode.
-
Any problems or queries in using network services should be raised
in the first instance with your network operator(s).
-
With Call Reply, automatic redial does not function in cases where
the called party is busy or doesn’t answer.
Call Reply to DDI numbers via Caller ID
Calls derived from a caller ID number to destinations connected to a
“Direct Dial Inward (DDI)” private exchange system may fail to connect,
or may be answered in the first instance by the called premises’ main
switchboard rather than by the intended extension. Brother is not liable
for any call charges thus incurred.

Polling
Polling is the process of retrieving faxes from another machine. You can
use your MFC to “poll” other machines, or you can have someone poll
your MFC.
All parties involved in polling need to set up their machines to
accommodate polling. When someone polls your MFC to receive a fax,
they pay for the call; if you poll someone’s fax machine to receive a fax,
you pay for the call. (See “Setup for Polling Transmit” in chap. 6.)
Some machines do not respond to the polling function.
Secure Polling
Secure Polling is a way to keep your documents and others’ from falling
into the wrong hands while the MFC are set up for polling. You can use
Secure Polling only with another Brother fax machine. Your four-digit
ID number must be entered on the fax machine that polls for your
documents.

(maximum of 130 locations (MFC-730) and 174 locations (MFC-740) if
you did not use up any locations for Groups, access codes or credit card
numbers). Real Time Transmission needs to be set to OFF.
However, available memory will vary with the types of jobs in memory
and numbers of locations used for broadcasting. If you broadcast to
more than the maximum locations available, you will not be able to setup
transmissions using dual access and the timer.
The easiest way to broadcast is to first combine frequently used One
Touch and Speed Dial numbers as a Group, which uses up a One Touch
Key. (Remember, you can have up to six Groups and Quick-Dial
numbers can be included in more than one Group). Then by pressing
Help/Broadcast between each location, you can include One Touch,
Speed Dial, Groups, and manual dialling (using the dial pad) in the same
broadcast. Use the Tel-index to help you choose the numbers easily.
After the broadcast is completed, a Broadcast Report will be printed

Using MFC
as Printer
Features
The Multi-Function Center offers you many features you will find in a
high quality ink jet printer.
Fast Printing Speed—Using Draft mode, you can print 4 pages per
minute in full colour.
Brilliant 4-Colour Output at 360 dpi —Printing at 360 dpi
resolution on special coated paper or glossy paper gives you normal
resolution output.
Brilliant 4-Colour Output at 720 dpi —Printing at 720 dpi
resolution on special coated paper or glossy paper gives you high
resolution output.
Brilliant 4-Colour Output at 1440 dpi —Printing at 1440 dpi
resolution on special coated paper or glossy paper gives you highest
resolution output.
Low Running Cost—Whenever you run out of a particular colour ink,
you will replace only the cartridge that’s empty.
Suitable Uses—You can print from both Windows and DOS operating
systems. When you print from DOS, the MFC uses ESC/P.
Bi-directional Parallel Interface—The parallel interface allows bidirectional (IEEE 1284 compliant) communication with your computer.
This interface allows the MFC to communicate useful information, such
as the amount of memory installed and other printing setup conditions, as
the supplied Windows® 3.1, 3.11, 95, 98 or NT® Workstation Version 4.0
drivers support bi-directional mode. Printer status is also reported.
116
CHAPTER THIRTEEN
Straight Paper Path—The MFC can use various types of paper: plain
paper, coated paper, glossy paper, transparencies, and envelopes. Using
the appropriate paper reduces the occurrence of paper jams. For complete
information about what kinds of paper to use with the MFC, please read
Chapter 3 in this manual.
Printer Driver
You can change the following printer settings when you print from your
computer:
■ Quality - Speed/Media Setting
■ Colour Correction Control
■ Colour Adjustment
■ Brightness/Contrast Adjustment/Halftone Selection
■ Start Maintenance Program
(See Chapter 18, PC Printing.)
Choosing the Right Kind of Paper
To achieve high quality printing using your MFC, it’s very important to
select the right kind of paper. Be sure to read “Paper Specifications” in
Chapter 3 in this manual before selecting and purchasing paper for the
MFC.
Multi-purpose Sheet Feeder
The multi-purpose sheet feeder can feed plain paper, coated paper, glossy
paper, transparencies, envelopes, and organizer paper (K,L). When the
MFC receives data from your computer, it begins the print process by
loading paper from the multi-purpose sheet feeder.
1 Select the print command from your PC.
USING MFC AS PRINTER
2 Your PC sends a print command and data to the MFC. The screen
displays the date and time, and RECEIVING DATA.
3 If there are more pages, the MFC begins to print the next page
automatically.
4 When the MFC finishes printing all data, it returns to online status.
You can select paper source, paper size, and orientation in your
application software. If your application software does not support your
custom paper size, select the next larger paper size. Then adjust the print
area by changing the right and left margins in your application software.
Loading Paper
You can use plain paper, coated paper, transparencies, glossy paper, and
envelopes and organiser (K,L) in the multi-purpose sheet feeder. (See
Chapter 3 for more information about paper types.)
1 Open the top cover of the MFC. Turn the purple paper thickness
adjustment lever down toward the platen. When you want to print on
regular paper, keep the lever up. When you want to use thick paper,
move the lever down. Then, close the top cover.

CHAPTER THIRTEEN
4 Close the feeder cover.
Manual Feed Slot
You can use only one sheet at a time in the Manual Feed Slot. Paper
loaded in the Manual Feed Slot is printed first, even when there is some
paper left in the Feeder.
If you want to print more than one page using the Manual Feed Slot, on
your PC, in the printer driver Properties Paper tab, select “manual feed”.
1 Load one sheet of paper in the Manual Feed Slot, holding it with
both hands. Align the paper in the center of the feeder.
2 Gently push the paper all the way down in the slot.
3 Adjust the guides to make sure the paper is straight and centered to
prevent a paper jam or misfeed.
If you do not insert paper in the manual feed slot, the MFC will print
from the cassette.
Setup for Envelopes
You can use the manual feed slot to print one envelope at a time.

6 From your PC application, tell the MFC to begin printing. On
completion, you can place another envelope in the manual feed slot.
Simultaneous Printing/Fax
Your MFC can print data from your computer while sending or receiving
a fax, or while scanning information into the computer. However, when
the MFC is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the PC printing
operation, and resumes when copying or fax receiving is complete. Fax
sending will continue during PC printing.
Simultaneous Printing/Scanning is not available for MFC-730.

PC PRINTING
155
Paper Source
For the MFC, you can choose Feeder or Manual.
Feeder
The multi-purpose sheet feeder is primarily used for printing on
standard-size paper and envelopes.
Manual Feed
If your paper has difficulty feeding from the sheet feeder, we recommend
using the Manual paper feed method. You will have to load paper sheet
by sheet. The MFC stops before printing and the Printer Driver shows
“Please load one sheet…” message. Insert a sheet into the manual feed
slot and click “OK” to resume printing.
Orientation
Print orientation may be Portrait or Landscape. Portrait orientation
means the page is taller than it is wide when you view the printed text
upright. Landscape orientation means the page is wider than it is tall
when you view the printed text upright.
Scaling
Use this function to reduce or enlarge your document, from 50% to
200%. We recommend the following percentages for the paper types
shown.
141%
A5 -> A4
115%
B5 -> A4
87%
A4 -> B5
71%
A4 -> A5, B4 -> B5
2 in 1
Two pages are printed on one sheet at a reduced size. If you selected the
“2 in 1”, you cannot specify the scaling percentage manually.
1 in N
One page is printed on multiple sheets at an enlarged size. If you selected
the “1 in N”, you cannot specify the scaling percentage manually.
156
CHAPTER EIGHTEEN
If your application software contains a similar function to this,
both settings will be effective. Do not use the two selections
simultaneously.
Copies
The Copies selection tells Windows how many copies you want to print
from a software application.
This setting is independent of the “copies selection” that may be
available within the print menus of your software application.
Do not use the two selections simultaneously.
Collate
In multiple page jobs that are uncollated, several copies of Page 1 are
printed followed by several copies of Page 2, followed by several copies
of Page 3, etc. For example, for 2 copies of a 3 page document, the MFC
prints Page 1, Page 1, Page 2, Page 2, Page 3, and Page 3 in order.
In multiple page jobs that are collated, a complete set of pages in a job
are printed followed by another complete set of pages. For example,
printing 2 copies of a 3 page document, the MFC prints Page 1, Page 2,
Page 3, then Page 1, Page 2, and Page 3 in order. In this case, the MFC
starts printing after processing all the print data so that it takes a longer
time for collated printing than uncollated printing.
Reverse Order
The MFC normally prints Page 1 and ejects it face-up so that the
following pages are stacked on top of previous pages. (Page 5, Page 4,
Page 3 ..... Page 1) When you want to get correct-ordered printouts, use
this function. The MFC spools the job in your computer and sends the
data starting from the last page to the printer. Since the MFC prints from
the last page forwards, the printouts are stacked Page 1, 2, 3, ...Page 5.
Please note that this function takes more time.

CHAPTER EIGHTEEN
Quality
Select the print quality. The print quality and speed are related. Higher
quality takes a longer time to print.
Draft :
360 x 180 dpi. The fastest print mode (approximately two
to four times faster than normal mode) and gives lower ink
consumption. Use this mode to print large volume
documents or a document for proofing.
Normal :
360 x 360 dpi. Recommended mode for ordinary printouts.
Good print quality with comfortable printing speed.
Fine :
720 x 720 dpi for colour. Better print quality than normal
and faster print speed than Super Fine.
Super Fine : 1440 x 720 dpi. Use this mode to print precise images such
as photographs. Since the print data is much larger than
normal mode, processing time, data transfer time, and
printing time will be longer.
Media
Select the media to print on. The MFC changes the way it places dots
depending on the selected media type. To get good print output, make
sure to select the correct media type.
Selecting media type changes the print quality selection to the most
suitable one as listed below. We recommend that you print with the
preset quality for best printing result.

Colour/Mono
Colour
When your document contains colour and you want to print it in colour,
select this mode. Only generic colours will appear on the printout.
(Unless you also select colour matching.)
Mono
Select this mode if your document has only black and gray scale text
and/or objects. Mono mode makes the print processing speed faster than
colour mode. If your document contains colour, selecting Mono mode
prints your document in 256 levels of gray scale.
Controlling the Colour
To get accurate colour matched output between the monitor and MFC,
the colour data should be adjusted for the MFC before printing.
Colour adjustment is provided by both Windows® 95 / 98 and this printer
driver. Using this feature, the colour data is adjusted by Win95 ICM or
the Brother MFC-740 printer driver and you can get colours more closely
matching those appearing on the PC monitor.
When you are using a software application that has its own colour
matching engine, turn this setting off. The colour matching system from
that application is then used.
Windows® 95 / 98 has a colour matching engine called “ICM - Image
Colour Matching” in its Operating System. ICM uses a profile of each
device (monitor, scanner, printer, MFC) to know the characteristics of
individual devices and correct the difference between them. When this is
set to off, the Brother MFC-730/MFC-740 printer driver will do the
colour adjustment. At present, the ICM feature is not supported by all the
monitor and printer vendors and if ICM does not have your PC monitor’s
profile, then ICM cannot work correctly. Moreover, ICM takes a longer
time.
When using Windows® 3.1, 3.11, NT, this selection is not available.
160
CHAPTER EIGHTEEN
Document
The printer driver will select the most suitable colour matching method
depending on your document type. Generally, text and business graphics
are printed vividly and photographic images are printed softly.
■ Auto
The printer driver automatically selects the document type. In most
cases, we recommend to use the Auto setting.
■ Photo
Select this mode for Photographic images.
■ Graphics
Select this mode for documents that contain text or business graphics
such as charts or clip art.
■ Custom
If you want to select the colour matching method and halftone
method manually, select this mode and press the “Custom setting”
button to access further settings.
Custom Setting
You can customize your settings by selecting the type of colour
matching, half tone, and effect that will be used.
Colour Matching
You can select the colour matching method manually. Since the way of
reproducing colour and the reproducible range of colour between the
monitor and the MFC are different, colour matching adjusts this
difference. There are several ways to adjust colour for your MFC. Select
the best one for your document. Execute PC monitor calibration to make
these settings and make the result effective.
■ Photo (Available only when ICM is turned On.)
Suitable for photographic images. When adjusting colour, colour
tone is kept as original as possible. All colours are adjusted evenly,
so you can get natural colour tones.
■ Graphics (Available only when ICM is turned On.)
Suitable for Graphics and text. When adjusting colour, colour
vividness is kept as much as possible. You can get vivid and clear
colour.
■ Logo (Available only when ICM is turned On.)
When you need an exact colour match such as for company logos
etc., use this selection.
PC PRINTING
■ Match Monitor (Available only when ICM is turned Off.)
Suitable for photographic images. Colour is adjusted to get the
closest colour match to the PC monitor.
■ Vivid Colour (Available only when ICM is turned Off.)
Suitable for business graphics such as charts, graphs, and text. The
colour is adjusted to give more vivid colour.
Halftone Pattern
The MFC can use several methods to arrange where to place dots to
express halftones. There are some predefined patterns used to place dots
and you can select which one is used for your document. Select the
appropriate method.
■ Cluster
This is suitable for business graphics such as charts, graphs and
drawings, since this creates more sharp printouts. Moreover, the
processing time is shorter.
■ Photo
This method creates smooth halftones so that this is suitable for
photographic images. It takes more time to process data, but this can
express more levels of halftones and creates more natural images.
Effect
■ Brightness
Change the brightness of the whole image lighter or darker. Moving
the scroll bar to the left makes your image darker and moving the
scroll bar to the right makes your image lighter.
■ Contrast
Change the contrast of an image. Darker sections will be more dark
and lighter sections will be more light as you increase the contrast.
Increase the contrast when you want an image to be clearer. Decrease
the contrast when you want an image to be more subdued.
■ Red
Increase the intensity of the Red colour to add red to the whole
image.
■ Green
Increase the intensity of the Green colour to add green to the whole
image.
■ Blue
Increase the intensity of the Blue colour to add blue to the whole
image.

PC PRINTING
Monitor Calibration
If you want to get the closest colour to your PC monitor on the printouts,
calibrate your monitor by clicking this button.
The method used to express colour is different between monitors and the
MFC. The PC monitor uses the three primary colours—Red, Green,
Blue—to create full colours and the MFC uses four colours—Cyan,
Magenta, Yellow, and Black—to create full colours.
To get the closest colour match, the colour matching system should
adjust the colour by referring to the monitor’s characteristics and MFC’s
characteristics. To find out the monitor’s characteristics, this monitor
calibration program is used. As the printer driver knows the MFC’s
characteristics, it converts the colour on the monitor for the MFC.
Bi-Directional Printing
The MFC prints by moving its print head. Normally, it prints in both
directions. By turning this option OFF (default setting is ON), the MFC
prints (uni-directional) so that the print speed will be reduced to half.
Sometimes the moving speed of the print head may not be stable due to
temperature changes, etc., and the printed vertical line may not be
aligned exactly. If you encounter this problem, turn this option off or use
the Maintenance menu and adjust the vertical line.
Maintenance
Select the Maintenance button to display the Maintenance screen, where
you can do a test print on the MFC to check the colours. If the test print
shows a problem, you can clean the print head on the MFC.

Poor Quality Print
Make sure the Printer Driver matches the type of paper you are using
(see PrintMedia on chap.18). If you are using plain paper, try using
recommended special paper (see Chapter 3). Don’t handle the paper
until the ink is dry. Adjust the Vertical Alignment (see chap.18).
Printing Too Dark or Too Light
Make sure your ink cartridges are fresh and within their expiry dates.
Cartridge expiry dates are printed on the package. Make sure the
Printer Driver matches the type of paper you are using (see Print Media
on chap.18). Try using recommended special paper (see Chapter 3). The
recommended environment for your MFC is between 15 °C to 30 °C.
Printing Appears Dirty or Ink Seems

Vertical Black Lines When Receiving
The sender’s scanner may be dirty. Ask the sender to make a copy to see
if the problem is with the sending machine. Try receiving from another
fax machine.
Phone Line or Connections
MFC Does Not Answer When Called
Make sure the MFC is in the correct receiving mode for your setup
(either Fax, Fax/Tel). Check for dial tone. If possible, call your
MFC to hear it answer. If there is still no answer, check the telephone
line cord connection. Connect a standard telephone handset to the MFC
telephone socket. If there is no ringing when you call your
MFC, call your Telephone Company to check the line.
No Dial Tone on the Handset
Lift the handset. If you hear no dial tone, check telephone line cord
connections at the MFC and wall jack. Check that the handset is
connected to the MFC’s handset jack. Test the wall jack with another
single line telephone. If no dial tone on the wall outlet, call your
Telephone Company.
Sending Faxes
Poor Transmitting Quality
Try changing your resolution to FINE or S.FINE. Make a copy to
verify your MFC’s scanner operation.

“Result:NG”again.
There is probably temporary noise or static on the line. Try sending the
fax If the problem continues, call the Telephone Company to check your
phone line.
Vertical Black Lines When Sending
If the copy you made shows the same problem, your scanner is dirty
(see Cleaning the Scanner in this chapter).
Handling Incoming Calls
Pseudo Ring in F/T Mode
The MFC knows the incoming call is not a fax so it is signaling you to
answer the telephone call. Pick up the MFC handset or answer from an
extension phone and press your MFC’s Remote Deactivation Code
(default setting is #51).
Transferring a Fax Call to the MFC
If you answered at the MFC, press Start and hang up immediately. If
you answered at an extension phone, press your Remote Activation
Code (default setting is 51). When your MFC answers, hang up.
Custom Features on a Single Line
If you have, Caller ID, RingMaster, Voice Mail, an answering machine,
alarm system or any other on a single phone line with your MFC, it may
create a problem sending or receiving fax data.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
fax data. 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 line with no custom features is
recommended.

know the quantity of ink left in the cartridge.
■ DO NOT shake the ink cartridges. If you do so, the ink may spill
when you take off the sealing tape.
■ If ink stains your body or clothing, wash with soap or detergent
immediately.
■ If you install an ink cartridge in the wrong colour position, you must
clean the print head several times before you start printing, after
correcting the cartridge installation, because the colours 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 within
two years of production.
■ DO NOT refill the ink cartridges. Attempting to use refilled
cartridges may cause damage to the print head and will void your
warranty.
