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

or specific relief. Because some states do not

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.
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

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 Operation Manual 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 Operation Manual 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. Within Montreal, please call (514) 685-6464.

About Fax Machines
If you’re a first-time MFC user, fax operation might seem a little mysterious.
Soon, you’ll recognize the unusual fax tones on your phone line, and be able to
send and receive faxes easily.
Custom Features
Do You Have Voice Mail on the Phone Line?
If you have Voice Mail on the phone line on which you will install your new
MFC, there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail and the MFC will conflict
with each other while receiving incoming calls.
Why Should There Be Trouble?
Since both MFCs and Voice Mail pick up the line at 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 keep your MFC from receiving faxes.
If you set Voice Mail and the Brother machine to answer at 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 previously is to get
a second phone number on your present phone line. Many people with Voice
Mail opt for this choice, which is called “Distinctive Ring”, and they are very
satisfied with it. For details about this type of custom service, please see
Distinctive Ring, page 9-1
Another way to avoid possible problem is to replace your Voice Mail with an
answering machine. Your Brother MFC is designed to work in tandem with an
answering machine or TAD (telephone answering device). (See Connecting an
External Telephone Answering Device (TAD), page 2-13.)
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’ll hear them after you dial
and press Black Fax Start; they continue for about 60 seconds after dialing.
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’ll soon learn to listen for these
soft beeps each time you answer a phone on your fax line, so you can know if
you are receiving a fax message.
1-5
INTRODUCTION
MFC3200C-US-FM6.0
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 LCD
shows 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 LCD
continues to display RECEIVING. To cancel the receiving mode, press Stop/
Exit.
When your MFC answers in FAX/TEL mode, it listens for CNG tones and then
responds with receiving tones.
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 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. Therefore, it’s important for the
receiving machine to answer the call in as few rings as possible.
Note
When you have an external telephone answering device (TAD) on your fax
line, your TAD will determine the number of rings before the call is answered.
Pay special attention to the directions chapter for connecting a TAD to your
MFC in Chapter 2, Assembly and Connections.
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.
Sufficient memory must be available in your MFC for this feature to work.

ASSEMBLY AND CONNECTIONS
MFC3200C-US-FM6.0
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 jack and a
standard, grounded power outlet. Choose a location where the temperature
remains between 50°F and 95°F (10°–35°C).
Avoid placing your MFC in a high-traffic area. 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.

before you start printing.
■ 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 refill the ink cartridges. Attempting to use refilled cartridges and using
incompatible inks may cause damage to the print head in this machine and such damage
will not be covered by warranty. Warranty coverage does not apply to problems caused by
the use of 3rd party ink or 3rd party ink cartridges. Use only genuine Brother ink cartridges.

Connecting the MFC
Connecting an External Telephone
Although your MFC has a handset, you can connect a separate telephone (or
telephone answering device) directly to your MFC.
Connect the modular plug on the telephone’s line cord to the jack labeled EXT.
on the back side of the MFC.
Whenever this phone (or TAD) is in use, the LCD displays EXT. TEL IN USE,
and, if the fax handset is lifted, an alarm sounds. To disconnect the call on the
external phone and switch to the fax, press Hook/Hold.
The external telephone can be cordless. Set the Receive Mode to FAX/TEL.
(See Using a Cordless External Handset, page 6-5.)
Connecting an External Telephone
Answering Device (TAD)
Sequence
You may choose to connect an answering device. However, when you have an
external TAD on the same telephone line as the MFC, 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 doesn’t 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 five rings (the recommended setting is two rings).
The MFC cannot hear CNG tones until the TAD has answered the call, and with
five 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. 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, you must reset the setting on your external
TAD to four rings or less.
The external TAD can be cordless. Set the Receive Mode to TAD:ANSWER
MACH..
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, use that number as a fax number, and
have set your machine’s Receive mode to MANUAL. The recommended
setting is three or four rings on the external TAD when you have the telephone
company’s Distinctive Ring Service.

ASSEMBLY AND CONNECTIONS
MFC3200C-US-FM6.0
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 machine and the TAD will try to control the
phone line. (See illustration on page 2-14.)
Do not connect a TAD elsewhere on the same phone line (unless you have
the Distinctive Ring service).

1 Plug the telephone line cord from the wall jack into the back side of the MFC,
in the jack labeled LINE.
2 Plug the telephone line cord from your external TAD into the back side of the
MFC, in the jack labeled EXT. (Make sure this cord is connected to the TAD at
the TAD’s telephone line jack, and not its telephone set jack.)
3 Set your external TAD to four rings or less. (The MFC’s Ring Delay setting does
not apply.)
4 Record the outgoing message on your external TAD (see page 2-15).
5 Set the TAD to answer calls.
6 Set the Receive Mode to TAD:ANSWER MACH..

Recording Outgoing Message (OGM)
Timing is important in recording this message. The message sets up the ways to
handle both manual and automatic fax reception.
1 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.)
2 Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
3 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
Note
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
rerecord the OGM to include it.
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 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 would be received,
the fax call is 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, page 6-3.)
2 - 15
ASSEMBLY AND CONNECTIONS
MFC3200C-US-FM6.0
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 triplex adapter.

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. The two-line TAD must have two telephone jacks: one labeled L1 or
L1/L2, and the other labeled L2, which is explained in the following Steps. 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.
1 Place the two-line TAD and the two-line telephone next to your MFC.
2 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 left side of the
MFC.
3 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.

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.
Multi-Line Connections (PBX)
Most offices use a central telephone system. While it is often relatively simple
to connect the machine 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. You can then leave the MFC in FAX ONLY mode to receive faxes
any time of day or night.
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.
As with all fax units, this machine must be connected to a two wire system. If
your line has more than two wires, proper connection of the MFC cannot be
made.
If You are Installing the MFC to Work with a PBX:
1 It is not guaranteed that the unit will operate correctly under all circumstances
with a PBX. Any cases of difficulty should be reported first to the company that
handles your PBX.
2 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.
3 The MFC may be used with either pulse or tone dialing telephone service.

About Paper
The quality of your document can be affected by the kind of paper you use in
the MFC. You can use plain paper, inkjet paper (coated paper), glossy paper,
transparencies and envelopes. We recommend testing various papers before
purchasing large quantities. For best results, use the recommended paper.
To ensure the best print quality for the settings you’ve chosen, always set the
Paper Type to match the type of paper you load.
Note
When using inkjet paper, glossy paper or transparencies, avoid stacking by
removing each page after copying or receiving faxes.
Handling and Using Special Paper
■ Store paper in the original bag, and keep it sealed. Keep the paper flat and away
from moisture, direct sunlight and heat.
■ The coated side of glossy paper is shiny. Do not touch the shiny (coated) side.
Load glossy paper with the shiny side facing up toward you.
■ Do not touch either side of transparencies, because they absorb water and
perspiration easily and may cause decreased output quality. Transparencies
designed for laser printers/copiers may stain your next document. Use only
recommended transparencies.

User-Friendly Programming
We have designed your MFC with on-screen programming using 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 created step-by-step on-screen
prompts to help you program your MFC. All you need to do is follow the
prompts as they guide you through the menu selections and programming
options. Additionally, you can program settings more quickly by pressing
Menu/Set and the menu number using the dial pad.
Menu Selection Table
You can probably perform most of these programming operations without the
User’s Guide. To help you understand the menu selections, and options that are
found in the MFC programs, use the Menu Selection Table on page 4-3.

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, and then press Menu/Set.
Alternating Displays
Sometimes, the LCD alternates between the active setting, and a help message
giving brief instructions about how to proceed. The LCD message you’ll
probably see most often is shown below. When you place an original in the
ADF, it appears to tell you that you can dial a number to send a fax or you can

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.

Choosing the Handset Volume (For Volume Amplify)
Before you begin to use the machine, you must decide if you need to set the
handset volume to VOL AMPLIFY: ON for a user who is hearing-impaired.
The AMPLIFY volume level complies with FCC standards.
VOLUME AMPLIFY: OFF
This default setting is appropriate if none of the users are hearing-impaired.
During a conversation, users can press Volume or on the control panel to
adjust the volume to LOW or HIGH. When the handset is replaced, the handset
volume will remain until you change it again.
VOLUME AMPLIFY: ON—TEMPORARY
This setting is appropriate if some of the users are hearing-impaired. During a
conversation, users can press Volume or on the control panel to adjust the
volume to LOW, HIGH or AMPLIFY. When the handset is replaced, the
handset volume returns to the default setting of LOW.
VOLUME AMPLIFY:ON—PERMANENT
Choose VOL AMPLIFY:ON—PERMANENT if all of the users are
hearing-impaired. During a conversation, users can press Volume or on the
control panel to adjust the volume to LOW, HIGH or AMPLIFY. When the
handset is replaced, the handset volume returns to the default setting of AMPLIFY.
When you press Volume or on the control panel to adjust the volume, the
LCD shows the setting you are choosing. Each key press changes the volume
to the next setting.
WARNING
It is important that you do NOT choose PERMANENT unless ALL the
users are hearing-impaired. Otherwise, the default setting of AMPLIFY may
damage the hearing of some users.

Setting the F/T Ring Time (For FAX/TEL Mode Only)
If you set the receive mode to FAX/TEL, you’ll need to determine how long the
MFC will send you its special double-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 double-ring. However, you can answer the call on any extension
phone (in a separate wall jack) on the same line as the MFC. (See Operation
from Extension Telephone, page 6-5.)
1 Press Menu/Set, 2, 1, 2.
2.F/T RING TIME
2 Press or to select how long the fax machine will ring to alert you that you have
a voice call, and then press Menu/Set.
RING TIME:20 SEC
3 Press Stop/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 answer 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 a doublering for the length of time you selected in F/T Ring Time.
Even if the caller hangs up during the double-ringing, the MFC continues for
the set time.
Easy Receive
When you use this feature, you don’t have to press Black Fax Start when you
answer a fax call and hear calling beeps. Just hold the handset and wait a few
seconds. When you see RECEIVING on the LCD or when you hear “chirps”
through the handset of an extension phone connected to another wall jack, just
replace the handset. Your fax machine 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 Black Fax Start or by pressing 5 1 if you
are not at your MFC.
(See Operation from Extension Telephones, page 6-5 and For FAX/TEL Mode Only,
page 6-5.)
Note
Note
If you’ve set the feature to ON, but your MFC doesn’t automatically connect a
fax call when you lift an external or extension phone handset, press the Fax
Receive code 5 1. At the MFC, lift the handset and then press Black Fax
Start.
If you send faxes from a computer on the same phone line and the MFC
intercepts them, set Easy Receive to OFF.

Printing a Reduced Incoming Fax (Auto Reduction)
You can always reduce the size of an incoming fax to a fixed percentage,
regardless of the size of the paper in your MFC. ON lets your MFC choose the
level of reduction for you.

Note
If incoming faxes show that information in the left and right margins has been

FOR YOUR INFORMATION
If one or more ink cartridges are empty, the MFC will stop printing to protect
the print heads; black & white faxes will be received into memory. The MFC3200C’s “handshake” will request that color faxes be sent as black & white.
If the sending machine has the feature to send color faxes in black & white,
they can be received into memory also.
Replace the empty ink cartridges to print the faxes from memory.
If the MFC runs out of paper, it stops printing and receives faxes into memory.
Add paper, and then press Black Fax Start to print the faxes.

Advanced Receiving Operations
Operation from Extension Telephones
If you answer a fax call on an extension phone or on an external phone in the
EXT. jack, you can make your MFC take over by using the Fax Receive Code.
When you press the Fax Receive Code 5 1, the MFC starts to receive a fax.
(See Easy Receive, page 6-3.)
If the MFC answers a voice call and double-rings for you to take over, use the
Telephone Answer Code # 5 1 to take the call at an extension phone.
(See Setting F/T Ring Time, page 6-3.)
If you answer a call, and no one is on the line, assume you’re receiving a fax. At
the MFC phone press Black Fax Start, and then hang up. At an extension
phone, press 5 1, wait for fax receiving tones (chirps), and then hang up. At
an external phone, press 5 1 and wait for the phone to be disconnected before
you hang up (the LCD shows RECEIVING). (Your caller will have to press
Black Fax Start to send the fax.)
For FAX/TEL Mode Only
When the MFC is in FAX/TEL mode, it will use the F/T Ring Time (doubleringing) to alert you to a voice call. If you’re at the MFC, you can lift the handset
to answer.
If you’re at an extension phone, you’ll need to lift the handset during the F/T
Ring Time, and then press # 5 1 between the 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 5 1.
Using a Cordless External Handset
If your cordless telephone is connected to the EXT. jack of 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 answer using
the cordless and then go to the MFC so you can press Hook/Hold to transfer
the call to the cordless handset.
Changing the Remote Codes
Remote Codes might not work with some telephone systems. The preset Fax
Receive Code is 5 1. The preset Telephone Answer Code is # 5 1.
Note
If you are always disconnected when accessing your external TAD remotely,
try changing the Fax Receive Code from 5 1 to # # # and the Telephone
Answer Code from # 5 1 to 9 9 9.

Polling is the process of retrieving faxes from another MFC. You can use your
fax machine to “poll” other machines, or you can have someone poll your MFC.
All parties involved in polling need to set up their fax 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.
Some fax machines do not respond to the Polling feature.

Custom Features
Your MFC supports the Distinctive Ring and Caller ID telephone services
offered by some telephone companies.
If you have Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, RingMaster, an
answering service, or an alarm system or other custom feature on your telephone line,
it may create a problem in the operation of your MFC.
(See Custom Features on a Single Line, page 23-8.)
If you have Voice Mail on your phone line, please read the following carefully.
Distinctive Ring
The term “Distinctive Ring” is used by Brother to identify a phone company
service that is given many names, depending on the telephone company you are
using. For example, this service may be called SmartRing, RingMaster, TeenRing, Ident-a-Call or Ident-a-Ring.
What Does Your Telephone Company’s “Distinctive Ring” Do?
Your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring service allows more than one
number on the same phone line. If you need more than one phone number, it
is an inexpensive alternative to paying for an additional 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.
Note
Please consult your telephone company for availability and rates.
What Does Brother’s “Distinctive Ring” Do?
The Brother machine has a Distinctive Ring feature that allows you to use your
MFC to take full advantage of the telephone company’s Distinctive Ring
service. You can dedicate the new phone number on your line to receiving only
faxes.
Note
You must purchase 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 on which you will install your new
MFC, there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail and the MFC will conflict
with each other while receiving incoming calls. However, this Distinctive Ring
feature allows the use of more than one number on your line, so both Voice
Mail and the MFC can coexist peacefully. If each one has a separate phone
number, neither will interfere with the other’s work.
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 provided, so your MFC 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 later turn it back on. When you get a new fax
number, make sure you reset this feature.
Before You Choose the Ring Pattern to Register
You can register only one Distinctive Ring pattern with the MFC. Some ring
patterns cannot be registered. Please refer to some popular ring pattern examples
that will be provided from the phone company in the USA and Canada that are
shown in the Brother compatibility table below.
Ring
Pattern
Note
Rings
1
long - long
2
short - long - short
3
short - short - long
4
very long (normal pattern)
If the ring pattern the phone company provided cannot be registered by the fax,
please check for other available ring pattern choices from the phone
company.
■ The MFC will answer only 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 (compare it to the pattern that was “registered”).
■ If you program the MFC correctly, it will recognize the registered ring pattern
of the “fax number” within two ring patterns and then automatically answer with
a fax tone. When the “voice number” is called, the MFC will not interrupt the
call.

VERY IMPORTANT
If you have Voice Mail or a TAD (Telephone Answering Device) and want to
keep one of your phone numbers dedicated only to fax calls, you must leave the
MFC in MANUAL mode at all times while using the Distinctive Ring Feature.
Here’s why: MANUAL mode will never pick up a call by itself, since it is
«Neutral». When the MFC is in this «neutral» mode, the Distinctive Ring Feature
can be activated. The Distinctive Ring feature is actually an answering mode. So,
do not activate FAX ONLY mode or FAX/TEL mode while using Distinctive
Ring; otherwise, MFC will answer calls for all the numbers.
Registering the Distinctive Ring Pattern
1 Set the MFC to MANUAL mode.
2 Press Menu/Set, 2, 0, 1.

3 Press or to select DISTINCTIVE:SET?, and then press Menu/Set.
4 Press or to select the prestored ring pattern you want to assign, and then press
Menu/Set. (You will hear each pattern as you scroll through the four patterns.)
Be sure to choose the pattern assigned by the telephone company.
5 Press Stop/Exit.
Caller ID
The Caller ID feature lets you use the Caller ID subscriber service offered by
many local telephone companies. This service provides you, by means of the
LCD, the name or telephone number of your caller as the line rings.
After a few rings, the LCD shows the telephone number of your caller (or 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 originates outside your Caller ID service
area.
■ PRIVATE CALL display means the caller has intentionally blocked
transmission of information.
■ CALL PICKUP display remains on the LCD when no Caller ID information
was transmitted.
If both the name and number are received, the LCD shows only the name. You
can print a list of Caller ID information received by your MFC. (See Printing
Caller ID List, page 9-4.)

■ 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.
Color Enhance
Selecting Color Enhance/True2Life ON enables the True2Life feature. This
feature analyzes your image to improve quality sharpness, white balance and
color density. This process may take several minutes depending on the size of
the image, the speed and RAM memory of your computer.
■ Color Enhance/True2Life ON
Adjusts the color in the image for better print quality. Print time will be longer
with True2Life set to ON.
■ Sharpness
This setting enhances the detail of an image. This is similar to adjusting the fine
focus on a camera. If the focus is off a little you will not be able to clearly see
the fine details of an image.
■ Color Density
This adjusts the total amount of color in the image. You can increase or decrease
the amount of color in an image to improve a picture which may appear washed
out or weak.
■ White Balance
This adjusts the hue of the white sections of an image. Lighting, camera settings
and other influences will effect the appearance of white. The white parts of a
picture may appear to be slightly pink, yellow or some other color. By using
this adjustment you can correct this effect and bring the white sections back to
pure white.
■ 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 color to add red to the whole image.
■ Green
Increase the intensity of the Green color to add green to the whole image.

Brother SmartUI Control Center
The Brother Control Center is a software utility that allows you to quite easily,
with very few mouse clicks, access the most frequently used scanning
applications. Using the Control Center eliminates the need to manually launch
the specific applications.
The Brother Control Center provides four categories of operations:
1 Scan directly to a file, E-mail, word processor or graphic application of your
choice.
2 Enhanced copy functions, such as Nine/Four/Two or One on One Copying.
(NOTE: The number of copy buttons may vary depending on which model MFC
you purchased.)
3 PC Faxing using the Brother PC Fax software.
4 Custom buttons allow you to configure a button to meet you own application
requirements. (NOTE: The number of Custom buttons may vary depending on
which model MFC you have purchased.)
In the Task Tray right click on the Control Center
icon and select Show to
have access to the Brother SmartUI Control Center window.

Brother Control Center Features
The SmartUI control center gives you the ability to both configure the hardware
“Scan to” keys on your MFC and to use additional built in software features
such as “Scan to File”. The “Scan to File” feature allows you to scan a
document directly to your hard disk in the directory and file format of your
choice without having to run any other applications. Select which section you
want by clicking on the appropriate tab.
Auto Configuration
During the installation process the Control Center checks your system to
determine the default applications for E-mail, word processing and graphics
viewer/editor.
For example, if you are using Outlook as your default E-mail application, the
Control Center automatically will create a link and a scanning application
button for Outlook.
You can change the default application by right clicking on any of the scan
buttons in the Control Center and then clicking Configuration. Select the
Configuration tab and from the Application pull down menu select a different
application. For example, you can change the E-mail scan button from Outlook
Express to Outlook by changing the application that is listed.

Brightness:
Brightness: Adjusting the brightness settings to obtain the best image. The
Brother Multi-Function Link® Pro offers 100 brightness settings (-50 to 50).
The default value is 0, representing an “average” setting.
You can set the brightness level by dragging the slidebar to the right to lighten
the image or to the left to darken the image. You can also type a value in the box
to set the settings.
If the scanned image is too light, set a lower brightness value and scan the
document again.
If the image is too dark, set a higher brightness value and scan the document
again.
Contrast:
The contrast setting is adjustable only when you have selected one of the gray
scale settings, but it is not available when Black & White is selected as the Scan
Type.
Increasing the contrast level (by dragging the slidebar to the right) emphasizes
dark and light areas of the Image, while decreasing the contrast level (by
dragging the slidebar to the left) ravels more detail in gray areas. Instead of
using the slidebar, you can type a value in the box to set the contrast.
Size:
Set the Size to one of the following:
• Letter (8 1/2 × 11 in.)
• A4 (210 × 297 mm)
• Legal (8 1/2 × 14 in.)
• A5 (148 × 210 mm)
• B5 (182 × 257 mm)
• Executive (7 1/4 × 10 1/2 in.)
• Business Card (90 × 60 mm)
• Custom (User adjustable from 0.35 × 0.35 in. to 8.5 × 14 in.)
After you select a custom size, you can adjust the scanning area further by using
the left mouse button to drag the dotted outline of the scanning area. This is
required when you want to crop an image when scanning.
To scan business cards, select the Business Card (90 × 60 mm) size setting and
place the business card at the top center of a carrier sheet.

Scan to key, make sure the Brother Control Center application is running on
your PC. (For details about how to configure the Brother Control Center buttons
to launch the application of your choice using the Scan to key, see Brother
Control Center Features, page 15-6 to 15-11 or 16-4 to 16-7.)
Scan to E-mail
You can scan either a black and white or a color original into your E-mail
application as a file attachment. Although the Brother Control Center can be
configured to send only black and white or color file attachments at one time,
you can easily change this setting. (For details see Scan to E-mail, pages 15-7 to
15-9.)

Viewing Items in ScanSoft™ PaperPort® for Brother
ScanSoft™ PaperPort® provides
several ways to view items:
Desktop View displays a
thumbnail, a small graphic that
represents each item in a Desktop
or folder. Items in the selected
folder appear on the PaperPort®
Desktop. You can see PaperPort®
items (MAX files) and nonPaperPort® items (files created
using other applications). NonPaperPort® items include an icon
that indicates the application that
was used to create the item; a nonPaperPort® item is represented by
a small rectangular thumbnail and
not an actual image.
Page View displays a close-up of a
single page and you can open a
PaperPort® item by doubleclicking on it. As long as you have
the appropriate application on
your computer to display it, you
can also double-click a nonPaperPort® item to open it.

to select folders and view their items in Desktop View.
■ You can simply drag and drop an item onto a folder. When the folder is
highlighted, release the mouse button and the item is stored in that folder.
■ Folders can be “nested”—that is, stored in other folders.
■ When you double-click a folder, its items (both PaperPort® MAX files and other
files) appear on the Desktop.

Resolution
Choose the scanning resolution from the Resolution pop-up menu. Higher
resolutions take more memory and transfer time, but can achieve a finer scanned
image. (Each model has different resolutions. See Specification.)
Color Type
Black & White—Set the image Type to Black&White for text or line art. For
photographic images, set the image type to Gray (Error diffusion) or True Gray.
Gray (Error Diffusion)—is used for documents that contain photographic
images or graphics. (Error Diffusion is a method for creating simulated gray
images by placing black dots in a specific matrix instead of true gray dots.)
True Gray—also is used for documents containing photographic images or
graphics. This mode is more exact because it uses up to 256 shades of gray. It
requires the most memory and longest transfer time.

Colors—Choose either 256 Color, which scans up to 256 colors, 24-bit color
which scans up to 16.8 million colors. Although using 24-bit color creates an
image with the most accurate colors, the image file will be approximately three
times larger than a file created with 256 Color.
Scanning Area
Set the Size to one of the following:
• Letter (8.5 × 11 inches)
• A4 (210 × 297 mm)
• Legal (8.5 × 14 inches)
• A5 (148 × 210 mm)
• B5 (182 × 257 mm)
• Executive (7.25 × 10.5 inches)
• Business Card (90 × 60 mm)
• Custom (User adjustable from 0.35 × 0.35 inches to 8.5 × 14 inches)

Business Card Size
To scan business cards, select the Business Card size setting (90 × 60 mm) and
place the business card at the top center of a carrier sheet.
Carrier sheets are available from your Dealer.
When scanning photographs or other images for use in a word processor or other
graphics application, it is a good idea to try different settings for the contrast,
mode and resolution to determine which settings look best.
Miscellaneous
Brightness
Adjust the brightness settings to obtain the best image. The Brother TWAIN
Scanner driver offers 100 brightness settings (-50 to 50). The default value is 0,
representing an “average” setting.
You can set the brightness level by dragging the slidebar to the right to lighten
the image or to the left to darken the image. You can also type a value in the box
to set the setting. Click OK.
If the scanned image is too light, set a lower brightness value and scan the
document again.
If the image is too dark, set a
higher brightness value and
scan the document again.
Contrast
The contrast setting is adjustable only when you have selected one of the gray
scale settings, but it is not available when Black & White is selected as the Gray
Scale.
Increasing the contrast level (by dragging the slidebar to the right) emphasizes
dark and light areas of the Image, while decreasing the contrast level (by
dragging the slidebar to the left) reveals more detail in gray areas. Instead of
using the slidebar, you can type a value in the box to set the contrast. Click OK.

Color Sync Dialog
Perceptual Matching—All the colors of a given gamut are scaled proportionally
to fit within another gamut. This intent pretty much maintains the balance
between the colors in the image. This intent is the best choice for realistic
images, such as scanned photographs.
Saturation Matching—The relative saturation of colors is maintained from
gamut to gamut. So basically the colors are shifted to the edge of the gamut to
get the most saturated color possible. Rendering the image using this intent
gives the strongest colors and is the best choice for bar graphs and pie charts, in
which the actual color displayed is less important than its vividness.
Relative Colorimetric Matching—The colors that fall within the gamuts of both
devices are left unchanged. Some colors in both images will be exactly the same,
a useful outcome when colors must match quantitatively. What that means is
that if the color is inside the gamut, it will stay the same color. However, if the
color is outside the gamut, it will be mapped to the edge of the gamut. This intent
is best suited for logos or “spot colors” where color must match.
Absolute Colorimetric Matching—A close appearance match may be achieved
over most of the tonal range, but if the minimum density of the idealized image
is different from that of the output image, the areas of the image that are left
blank will be different. Colors that fall within the gamuts of both devices are left
unchanged.

MFC Does Not Answer When Called
Make sure the MFC is in the correct receiving mode for your setup (either
FAX ONLY, FAX/TEL or TAD: ANSWER MACH). 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. If there is no ringing when you
call your MFC, call your telephone company to check the line.
There is no dial tone on the handset.
Press Hook/Hold––OR––Lift the handset. If you hear no dial tone, check
telephone line cord connections at the MFC and wall jack. Check that the
handset curled cord is connected to the MFC’s handset jack. Test the jack
with another single line telephone. If no dial tone on the wall outlet, call
your telephone company.
Sending Faxes
Poor Transmission Quality
Try changing your resolution to FINE or S.FINE. Make a copy to verify
your MFC’s scanner operation.
Transmission Verification Report
says “Result:NG”
There is probably temporary noise or static on the line. Try sending the fax
again. If you send a PC FAX message and get “Result:NG” on the
Transmission Verification Report, your MFC may be out of memory. To
gain extra memory, you can turn off Fax Storage (See page 10-2), print fax
message in memory (See page 6-6) or cancel a delayed fax or polling job
(See page 6-7). 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, page 23-16.).
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, page 6-3.)
Transferring a Fax Call to the MFC
If you answered at the MFC, press Black Fax Start and hang up
immediately. If you answered at 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 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.

Your MFC is equipped with an ink dot counter that automatically monitors the
ink level in each color cartridge. When the counter detects an ink cartridge is
running out of ink, the MFC will notify you with a message on the LCD.
The LCD shows you which color cartridges are low or empty. Be sure to follow
the LCD prompts so you replace the color cartridges in the appropriate order.
When the ink cartridges are running low, you must use the Ink key to begin
the cartridge replacement (Steps 1 to 3). If the ink is empty, skip to Step 4.

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 printer will not know the quantity of
ink left in the cartridge.
■ DO NOT shake the ink cartridges, because 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 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

coverage does not apply to any problem that was caused by the use of unauthorized
third party ink and/or cartridges. To protect your investment and guarantee your print
quality please continue to replace consumed ink cartridges with only Genuine Brother
Branded Supplies.
Note
If the INK EMPTY message is on the display after you have installed ink
cartridges, check that the ink cartridges are installed correctly.
If you still cannot solve a problem with your MFC, call Brother Customer
