Printing Methods
Handling and using special paper
1
1
The machine is designed to work well with most types of xerographic and bond paper. However, some paper
variables may have an effect on print quality or handling reliability. Always test samples of paper before
purchasing to ensure desirable performance. Store paper in its original packaging and keep it sealed. Keep
the paper flat and away from moisture, direct sunlight and heat.
Some important guidelines when selecting paper are:
 DO NOT use inkjet paper because it may cause a paper jam or damage your machine.
 Preprinted paper must use ink that can withstand the temperature of the machine’s fusing process
200 degrees centigrade (392 degrees Fahrenheit).
 If you use bond paper, paper having a rough surface or paper that is wrinkled or creased, the paper may
exhibit degraded performance.
 When you are using glossy paper, put only one sheet at a time in the MP tray to avoid a paper jam.
Types of paper to avoid
1
IMPORTANT
Some types of paper may not perform well or may cause damage to your machine.
DO NOT use paper:
• that is highly textured
• that is extremely smooth or shiny
• that is curled or warped
1
1
1 A curl of 2 mm (0.08 in.) or greater may cause jams to occur.
• that is coated or has a chemical finish
• that is damaged, creased or folded
• that exceeds the recommended weight specification in this guide
• with tabs and staples
• with letterheads using low temperature dyes or thermography
• that is multipart or carbonless
• that is designed for inkjet printing
If you use any of the types of paper listed above, they may damage your machine. This damage is not
covered under any Brother warranty or service agreement.
5
Printing Methods
Envelopes
1
Most envelopes designed for laser printers will be suitable for your machine. However, some envelopes may
have feed and print-quality problems because of the way they have been made. A suitable envelope should
have edges with straight, well-creased folds and the leading edge should not be thicker than two sheets of
paper. The envelope should lie flat and not be of baggy or flimsy construction. You should buy quality
envelopes from a supplier who understands that you will be using the envelopes in a laser machine.
1
We recommend that you print a test envelope to make sure the print results are what you want.
Types of envelopes to avoid
1
IMPORTANT
DO NOT use envelopes:
• that are damaged, curled, wrinkled, irregularly shaped, extremely shiny or textured envelopes.
• with clasps, staples, snaps, tie strings, self-adhesive components, windows, holes, cutouts or
perforations.
• that are of a baggy construction, not sharply creased, embossed (have raised writing on them) or
pre-printed on the inside.
• that were previously printed by a laser / LED printer.
• that cannot be arranged when put in a pile.
• that are made of paper that weighs more than the paper weight specifications for the machine.
• with edges that are not straight or consistently square.
• with glue on surface as shown in figure below
• with double flaps as shown in figure below
• with sealing flaps that are not folded down when purchased
• with sealing flaps as shown in figure below
6
Printing Methods
• with each side folded as shown in figure below
1
If you use any of the types of envelopes listed above, they may damage your machine. This damage may
not be covered under any Brother warranty or service agreement.
Labels
1
The machine will print on most types of labels designed for use with a laser machine. Labels should have an
adhesive that is acrylic-based since this material is more stable at the high temperatures in the fuser unit.
Adhesives should not come in contact with any part of the machine, because the label stock may stick to the
drum unit or rollers and cause jams and print quality problems. No adhesive should be exposed between the
labels. Labels should be arranged so that they cover the entire length and width of the sheet. Using labels
with spaces may result in labels peeling off and causing serious jams or print problems.
All labels used in this machine must be able to withstand a temperature of 200 degrees centigrade
(392 degrees Fahrenheit) for a period of 0.1 seconds.
Types of labels to avoid
1
Do not use labels that are damaged, curled, wrinkled or an unusual shape.
IMPORTANT
• Avoid feeding labels with the carrier sheet exposed because your machine will be damaged.
• Label sheets should not exceed the paper weight specifications described in this User’s Guide. Labels
exceeding this specification may not feed or print properly and may cause damage to your machine.
• DO NOT reuse or insert labels that have previously been used or is missing few labels on the sheet.

Drum unit

Order No. DR-310CL
A new drum unit can print approximately 25,000 A4 or Letter size single-sided pages.
Note
• There are many factors that determine the actual drum life, such as the temperature, humidity, type of
paper, type of toner used and so on. Under ideal conditions, the average drum life is estimated at
approximately 25,000 pages. The actual number of pages that your drum will print may be significantly
less than this estimate. Because we have no control over the many factors that determine the actual drum
life, we cannot guarantee a minimum number of pages that will be printed by your drum.
• For best performance, use only genuine Brother toner. The machine should be used only in a clean,
dust-free environment with adequate ventilation.
5
• Printing with a third-party drum unit may reduce not only the print quality but also the quality and life of the
machine itself. Warranty coverage does not apply to problems caused by the use of a third-party drum unit.

First, make sure that you are using paper that meets Brother recommended paper specifications. (See Type
and size of paper on page 2.)
Problem
The machine does not feed
paper.
Recommendation
 If there is paper in the paper tray, make sure it is straight. If the paper is curled,
straighten it before printing. Sometimes it is helpful to remove the paper. Turn the
stack over and put it back in the paper tray. If the paper continues to curl, replace
the paper.
 Reduce the amount of paper in the paper tray, and then try again.
 Make sure that manual feed mode is not chosen in the printer driver.
 Clean the paper pick-up roller. See Cleaning the paper pick-up roller
on page 131.
The machine does not feed
paper from the MP tray.
 Make sure that you have chosen MP tray in Paper Source of the printer driver.
The machine does not feed
envelopes.
 The machine can feed envelopes from the MP tray. You must set up your
application to print on the size of envelopes you are using. This is usually done in
the page setup or document setup menu of your software. (See your application
manual.)
A paper jam has occurred.
 Clear the jammed paper. (See Paper jams and how to clear them on page 146.)
The machine does not print.
 Make sure that the cable is connected to the machine.
 Make sure the machine is powered on and that no error messages on the LCD.
 Make sure that you have chosen the correct printer driver.
When printing on normal paper,
it creases.
 Change the printer driver setting in Media Type to a thin setting.
The paper slides off the top
output tray.
 Lift up the support flap.
 Open the back cover and check the fuser rollers for any jammed paper.

Troubleshooting
Improving the print quality
6
If you have a print quality problem, print a test page first (see Machine Info. on page 71). If the printout looks
good, the problem is probably not the machine. Check the interface cable or try the machine on another
computer. If the printout has a quality problem, check the following steps first. And then, if you still have a
print quality problem, check the chart below and follow the recommendations.
Note
Using non-Brother supplies may affect the print quality, hardware performance, and machine reliability.
a
To get the best print quality, we suggest using the recommended paper. Check that you use the paper
that meets our specifications. (See Acceptable paper and other print media on page 2.)
b
Check that the drum unit and toner cartridges are installed properly.

Appendix
Important information for choosing your paper
A
This section gives information to help you choose paper to use with this machine.
Note
If you use paper that is not recommended, a paper jam or misfeed may occur in the machine.
Before you buy a large quantity of paper
A
Make sure that the paper is suitable for the machine.
Paper for plain paper copies
A
Paper is divided by usage, such as paper for printing and paper for copying. The usage is usually written on
the paper’s package. Check the package to see whether it is suitable for laser printers. Use paper that is
suitable for laser printers.
Basis weight
A
The basis weight of the paper in general use varies in different countries. We recommend that you use paper
that weighs 75 to 90 g/m2 (20 to 24 lb), although this machine is able to cope with thinner or thicker paper
than these weights.
Unit
Europe
USA
g/m2
80 to 90
75 to 90
lb
20 to 24
Long grain and short grain
A
The pulp fiber of the paper is aligned during paper manufacturing. And paper can be classified into two types,
long grain and short grain.
Long grain paper fibers run in the same direction as the long edge of the paper. Short grain paper fibers run
perpendicular to the long edge of the paper. Though most plain paper for copying is long grain, some is short
grain. We recommend that you use long grain paper for this machine. Short grain paper is too weak for the
paper transport of the machine.
Acid paper and neutralized paper
A
Paper can be classified as either acid paper or neutralized paper.
Though modern paper manufacture methods started with acid paper, neutralized paper is recently taking the
place of acid paper because of environmental issues.
However, many forms of acid paper can be found in recycled paper. We recommend that you use neutralized
paper for this machine.
You can use an acid paper check pen to distinguish acid paper from neutral paper.
176

Appendix
Print surface
A
The characteristics of the face side and reverse side of a sheet of paper may vary a little.
Usually, the opening side of the paper ream package is the print side. Follow the instructions on the paper
package. Typically, the print side is indicated by an arrow.
Moisture content
A
Moisture content is the amount of water left in the paper after manufacture. It is one of the important
characteristics of the paper. This can change greatly depending on the storage environment, although usually
paper contains about 5% water by weight. Because paper often absorbs water, the amount of water can
sometimes be about 10% in a high humidity environment. When the amount of water increases, the
characteristics of the paper changes greatly. The fixing of the toner may become worse. For storage of the
paper and during use, we recommend that the humidity of the surrounding environment be between 50% and
60%.

Appendix
 When CODE 39 is chosen with the parameter ‘t0’ or ‘T0’
Forty three characters ‘0’ to ‘9’, ‘A’ to ‘Z’, ‘-’, ‘ . ’, ‘ (space)’, ‘$’, ‘ / ’, ‘+’, and ‘%’ can be accepted as bar code
data. Other characters will cause a data error. The number of characters for bar codes is not limited. The
bar code data automatically starts and ends with an asterisk ‘ * ’ (start character and stop character). If the
received data has an asterisk ‘ * ’ at the beginning or end, the asterisk is regarded as a start character or
stop character.
 When Interleaved 2 of 5 is selected with the parameter ‘t1’ or ‘T1’:
Ten numerical characters ‘0’ to ‘9’ can be accepted as bar code data. Other characters cause a data error.
The number of characters for bar codes is not limited. This mode of bar codes needs even characters. If
the bar code data has odd characters, ‘0’ is automatically added to the end of the bar code data.
 When FIM (US-Post Net) is selected with the parameter ‘t3’ or ‘T3’
Characters ‘A’ to ‘D’ are valid and one digit of data can be printed. Upper-case and lower-case alphabet
characters can be accepted.
 When Post Net (US-Post Net) is selected with the parameter ‘t4’ or ‘T4’
Numbers ‘0’ to ‘9' can be data and it must end with a check digit. ‘?’ can be used instead of the check digit.
 When EAN 8, EAN 13, or UPC A is selected with the parameter ‘t5’ or ‘T5’
Ten numbers ‘0’ to ‘9’ can be accepted as bar code data. The number of characters for bar codes is limited
as follows:
EAN 8: Total 8 digits (7 digits + 1 check digit)
EAN 13: Total 13 digits (12 digits + 1 check digit)
UPC A: Total 12 digits (11 digits + 1 check digit)
A number of characters other than those stated above will cause a data error that results in the bar code
data being printed as normal print data. If the check digit is not correct, the machine decides the correct
check digit automatically so that the correct bar code data will be printed. When EAN13 is selected, adding
‘+’ and a two-digit or five-digit number after the data can create an add-on code.
 When UPC-E is selected with the parameter ‘t6’ or ‘T6’:
The numbers ‘0’ to ‘9’ can be accepted as bar code data.
Eight digits 1 2
(standard format) The first character must be ‘0’ and the data must end with a check digit.
Total eight digits = ‘0’ plus 6 digits plus 1 check digit.
Six digits 2
The first character and the last check digit are removed from the eight digit data.
1
‘?’ can be used instead of a check digit.
2
Adding ‘+’ and two-digit or five-digit number after the data creates an add-on code.
 When Codebar is chosen with the parameter ‘t9’ or ‘T9’
Characters ‘0’ to ‘9’, ‘-’, ‘ . ’, ‘$’, ‘/’, ‘+’, ‘ : ’ can be printed. Characters ‘A’ to ‘D’ can be printed as a start-stop
code, which can be upper case or lower case. If there is no start-stop code, errors will happen. A check
digit cannot be added and using ‘?’ causes errors.

Appendix
 When Code 128 Set A, Set B, or Set C is selected with the parameter ‘t12’ or ‘T12’, ‘t13’ or ‘T13’, or ‘t14’
or ‘T14’
Code 128 sets A, B and C can be individually selected. Set A shows characters Hex 00 to 5F. Set B
includes characters Hex 20 to 7F. Set C includes the pairs 00 to 99. Switching is allowed between the code
sets by sending %A, %B, or %C. FNC 1, 2, 3, and 4 are produced with %1, %2, %3, and %4. The SHIFT
code, %S, allows temporary switching (for one character only) from set A to set B and vice versa. The ‘%’
character can be encoded by sending it twice.
 When ISBN (EAN) is selected with the parameter ‘t130’ or ‘T130’
The same rules apply as for ‘t5’ or ‘T5’.
 When ISBN (UPC-E) is selected with the parameter ‘t131’ or ‘T131’:
The same rules apply as for ‘t6’ or ‘T6’.
 When EAN 128 set A, set B or set C is selected with the parameter ‘t132’ or ‘T132’, ‘t133’ or ‘T133’ or ‘t134’
or ‘T134’
The same rules apply as for ‘t12’ or ‘T12’, ‘t13’ or ‘T13’, or ‘t14’ or ‘T14’.
