Handling and using special
paper
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.
Types of paper to avoid
IMPORTANT
2
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
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 392 degrees
Fahrenheit (200 degrees centigrade).
 If you use bond paper, paper having a
rough surface or paper that is wrinkled or
creased, the paper may exhibit degraded
performance.

Envelopes
2
Most envelopes designed for laser printers
will be suitable for your machine. However,
some envelopes may have feed and printquality 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.
• with windows, holes, cut-outs or
perforations
• with glue on surface as shown in figure
below
• with double flaps as shown in figure
below
Envelopes can be fed from the manual feed
slot one at a time. We recommend that you
print a test envelope to make sure the print
results are what you want before you print or
purchase a large quantity of envelopes.
Types of envelopes to avoid
• with edges that are not straight or
consistently square
2
IMPORTANT
DO NOT use envelopes:
• that are damaged, curled, wrinkled or
an unusual shape
• that are extremely shiny or textured
• with sealing flaps that are not folded
down when purchased
• with sealing flaps as shown in figure
below
• with clasps, staples, snaps or tie
strings
• with self-adhesive closures
• that are of a baggy construction
• that are not sharply creased
• that are embossed (have raised writing
on them)
• that were previously printed by a laser
machine
• that are pre-printed on the inside
• that cannot be arranged neatly when
stacked
• that are made of paper that weighs
more than the paper weight
specifications for the machine

Types of labels to avoid
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
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.
2
Do not use labels that are damaged, curled,
wrinkled or an unusual shape.
2
2
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 are missing few
labels on the sheet.
All labels used in this machine must be able
to withstand a temperature of 392 degrees
Fahrenheit (200 degrees centigrade) for a
period of 0.1 seconds.
Do not feed a label sheet through the
machine more than one time.

The correct Receive Mode is determined by the external devices and telephone subscriber
services (Voice Mail, Distinctive Ring, etc.) you have (or will be using) on the same line as the
Brother machine.
Will you be using a Distinctive Ring number for receiving faxes?
Brother uses the term ‘Distinctive Ring’ but different telephone companies may have other names for this
service such as Custom Ringing, RingMaster, Personalized Ring, Teen Ring, Ident-A-Ring, Ident-A-Call,
Data Ident-A-Call, Smart Ring and SimpleBiz Fax & Alternate Number Ringing. (See Distinctive Ring
on page 32 for instructions on setting up your machine using this feature.)
Will you be using Voice Mail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine?
If you have Voice Mail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine, there is a strong possibility
that Voice Mail and the Brother machine will conflict with each other when receiving incoming calls. (See
Voice Mail on page 32 for instructions on setting up your machine using this service.)
Will you be using a Telephone Answering Device on the same telephone line as your Brother
machine?
Your external telephone answering device (TAD) will automatically answer every call. Voice messages are
stored on the external TAD and fax messages are printed. Choose External TAD as your receive mode.
(See Connecting an external TAD (telephone answering device) on page 35.)
Will you be using your Brother machine on a dedicated fax line?
Your machine automatically answers every call as a fax. Choose Fax Only as your receive mode. (See
Fax Only on page 29.)
Will you be using your Brother machine on the same line as your telephone?
Do you want to receive voice calls and faxes automatically?
The Fax/Tel receive mode is used when sharing the Brother machine and your telephone on the
same line. Choose Fax/Tel as your receive mode. (See Fax/Tel on page 29.)
Important Note: You can not receive voice messages on either Voice Mail or an answering
machine when choosing the Fax/Tel mode.
Do you expect to receive very few faxes?
Choose Manual as your receive mode. You control the telephone line and must answer every call
yourself. (See Manual on page 29.)

Voice Mail
If you have Voice Mail on the same telephone
line as your Brother machine, Voice Mail and
the Brother machine will conflict with each
other when receiving incoming calls.
For example, if your Voice Mail is set to
answer after 4 rings and your Brother
machine is set to answer after 2 rings, then
your Brother machine will answer first. This
will prevent callers from being able to leave a
message in your Voice Mail.
Similarly, if your Brother machine is set to
answer after 4 rings and your Voice Mail is set
to answer after 2 rings, then your Voice Mail
will answer first. This will prevent your Brother
machine from being able to receive an
incoming fax, since Voice Mail cannot
transfer the incoming fax back to the Brother
machine.
To avoid conflicts between your Brother
machine and your Voice Mail service, do one
of the following:
Get the Distinctive Ring service from your
telephone company. Distinctive Ring is a
feature of your Brother machine that allows a
person with one line to receive fax and voice
calls through two different telephone
numbers on that one line. Brother uses the
term ’Distinctive Ring’, but telephone
companies market the service under a variety
of names, such as Custom Ringing,
Personalized Ring, Smart Ring, RingMaster,
Ident-A-Ring, Ident-A-Call, Data Ident-A-Call,
32
6

Teen Ring, and SimpleBiz Fax & Alternate
Number Ringing. This service establishes a
second telephone number on the same line
as your existing telephone number, and each
number has its own ring pattern. Typically,
the original number rings with the standard
ring pattern and is used for receiving voice
calls, and the second number rings with a
different ring pattern and is used for receiving
faxes. (See Distinctive Ring on page 32.)
OR
Set your Brother machine’s Receive Mode to
“Manual”. Manual Mode requires that you
answer every incoming call if you want to be
able to receive a fax. If the incoming call is a
telephone call, then complete the call as you
normally would. If you hear fax sending tones
you must transfer the call to the Brother
machine. (See Using external and extension
telephones on page 37.) Unanswered fax
and voice calls will go to your Voice Mail. (To
set the machine in MANUAL Mode, see
Choose the correct Receive Mode

• Please call your telephone company for
availability and rates.
What does your telephone company’s
‘Distinctive Ring’ do?
6
Your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring
service allows you to have more than one
number on the same telephone line. If you
need more than one telephone number, it
is cheaper than paying for an extra line.
Each telephone number has its own
Distinctive Ring pattern, so you will know
which telephone number is ringing. This is
one way you can have a separate telephone
number for your machine.
Note
You must pay for your telephone
company’s Distinctive Ring service before
you program the machine to work with it.
6
Note
You can change or cancel the Distinctive
Ring pattern at any time. You can switch it
off temporarily, and turn it back on later.
When you get a new fax number, make
sure you reset this feature.
Please call your telephone company for
availability and rates.
The Brother machine has a Distinctive Ring
feature that allows you to use your machine to
take full advantage of the telephone
company’s Distinctive Ring service. The new
telephone number on your line can just
receive faxes.
If you have Voice Mail on the telephone line
that you will install your new machine on,
there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail
and the machine will conflict with each other
while receiving incoming calls. However, the
Distinctive Ring feature allows you to use
more than one number on your line, so
both Voice Mail and the machine can work
together without any problems. If each one
has a separate telephone number, neither will
interfere with the other’s operations.
If you decide to get the Distinctive Ring
service from the telephone company, you will
need to follow the directions below to
‘register’ the new Distinctive Ring pattern
they give you. This is so your machine can
recognize its incoming calls.

Note
• Ring Pattern #1 is often called Short-Short
and is the most commonly used.
• If the ring pattern you received is not on
this chart, please call your telephone
company and ask for one that is
shown.
 The machine will only answer calls to its
registered number.
 The first two rings are silent on the
machine. This is because the fax must
<<listen>> to the ring pattern (to compare
it to the pattern that was ‘registered’).
(Other telephones on the same line will
ring.)
 If you program the machine properly, it will
recognize the registered ring pattern of the
‘fax number’ within 2 ring patterns and
then answer with a fax tone. When the
‘voice number’ is called, the machine will
not answer.
Registering the Distinctive Ring
pattern Very important!
After you have set the Distinctive Ring feature
to On, your Distinctive Ring number will
receive faxes automatically. The receive
mode is automatically set to Manual and you
cannot change it to another receive mode
while Distinctive Ring is set to On. This
ensures the Brother machine will only answer
the Distinctive Ring number and not interfere
when your main telephone number is called.

Telephone services and external devices
Connecting an external
TAD (telephone
answering device)
You can connect an external Telephone
Answering Device (TAD) to the same line as
your machine. When the TAD answers a call,
your machine will “listen” for the CNG (fax
calling) tones sent by a sending fax machine.
If it hears them it will take over the call and
receive the fax. If it does not hear them, it will
let your TAD take a voice message and the
display will show Telephone.
The external TAD must answer within four
rings (we recommend you set it to two rings).
This is because your machine cannot hear
the CNG tones until the external TAD has
picked up the call. The sending machine will
send CNG tones for only eight to ten seconds
longer. We do not recommend using the toll
saver feature on your external TAD if it needs
more than four rings to activate it.
Unless you are using Distinctive Ring, the
TAD must be connected to the EXT. jack of
the machine.
Before you connect an external TAD
(telephone answering device), remove the
protective cap (2) from the EXT. jack on the
machine.

If you have problems receiving faxes,
reduce the ring delay setting on your

We recommend beginning your OGM with
an initial 5 second silence because the
machine cannot hear fax tones over a loud
voice. You may try leaving out this pause,
but if your machine has trouble receiving,
then you should re-record the OGM to
include it.
We suggest you ask the company who
installed your PBX to connect your machine.
If you have a multi line system we suggest
you ask the installer to connect the unit to the
last line on the system. This prevents the
machine being activated each time the
system receives telephone calls. If all
incoming calls will be answered by a
switchboard operator we recommend that
you set the Receive Mode to Manual.
Connecting an external or

You can connect a separate telephone
directly to your machine as shown in the

• 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 12,000 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.

Printing or printing received faxes
Difficulties
 Condensed print
 Horizontal streaks
Suggestions
Usually this is caused by a poor telephone connection. If your copy looks good,
you probably had a bad connection, with static or interference on the telephone
line. Ask the other party to send the fax again.
 Top and bottom sentences are
cut off
 Missing lines
Poor print quality
See Improving the print quality on page 96.
Vertical black lines when receiving
The corona wire for printing may be dirty. Clean the corona wire on the drum unit.
(See Cleaning the corona wire on page 62.)
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.
If the problem continues, call Brother Customer Service.
Received faxes appear as split or
blank pages.
If the received faxes are divided and printed on two pages or if you get an extra
blank page, your paper size setting may not be correct for the paper you are using.
(See Paper Size on page 17.)
Turn on Auto Reduction. (See Printing a reduced incoming fax in Chapter 4 of the
Advanced User's Guide.)
Telephone line or connections
Difficulties
Suggestions
Dialing does not work.
Check for a dial tone.
Check all line cord connections.
Check that the machine is plugged in and switched on.
Send a manual fax by pressing Hook or by lifting the handset of the external
telephone and dialing the number. Wait to hear fax receiving tones before
pressing Start.
The machine does not answer
when called.
86
Make sure the machine is in the correct receive mode for your setup. (See
Receive Mode settings on page 30.) Check for a dial tone. If possible, call your

connection. If you do not hear ringing when you call your machine, ask your
telephone company to check the line.
B
Troubleshooting
Receiving Faxes
Difficulties
Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
Make sure your machine has a dial tone by pressing the Hook key. If you hear
static or interference on your fax line, please contact your local telephone
company.
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into
the telephone wall jack and the LINE jack of the machine. If you subscribe to DSL
or VoIP services, please contact your service provider for connection instructions.
Make sure the machine is in the correct Receive Mode. This is determined by the
external devices and telephone subscriber services you have on the same line as
the Brother machine. (See Receive Mode settings on page 30.)
If you have a dedicated fax line and want your Brother machine to automatically
answer all incoming faxes, you should select Fax Only mode.
If your Brother machine shares a line with an external answering machine, you
should select the External TAD mode. In External TAD mode, your Brother
machine will automatically receive incoming faxes and voice callers will be able to
leave a message on your answering machine.
If your Brother machine shares the line with a Voice Mail subscriber service,
please see Voice Mail on page 32.
If your Brother machine is on a line with the Distinctive Ring subscriber service,
please see Distinctive Ring on page 32.
If your Brother machine shares a line with other telephones and you want it to
automatically answer all incoming faxes, you should select the Fax/Tel mode. In
Fax/Tel mode, your Brother machine will automatically receive faxes and
produce a pseudo/double-ring to alert you to answer voice calls.
If you do not want your Brother machine to automatically answer any incoming
faxes, you should select the Manual mode. In Manual mode, you must answer
every incoming call and activate the machine to receive faxes.
Another device or service at your location may be answering the call before your
Brother machine answers. To test this, lower the ring delay setting:
 If the answer mode is set to Fax Only or Fax/Tel, reduce the ring delay to
1 ring. (See Ring Delay on page 30.)
 If the answer mode is set to External TAD, reduce the number of rings
programmed on your answering machine to 2.
B
 If the answer mode is set to Manual, DO NOT adjust the ring delay setting.
Have someone send you a test fax:
 If you received the test fax successfully, your machine is operating properly.
Remember to reset your ring delay or answering machine setting back to your
original setting. If receiving problems recur after resetting the ring delay, then
a person, device, or subscriber service is answering the fax call before the
machine has a chance to answer.
 If you were not able to receive the fax, then another device or subscriber
service may be interfering with your fax reception or there may be a problem
with your fax line.
87
Receiving Faxes (continued)
Difficulties
Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
If you are using a telephone answering machine (External TAD mode) on the
same line as the Brother machine, make sure your answering machine is set up
correctly. (See Connecting an external TAD (telephone answering device)
on page 35.)
(continued)
1
Plug the telephone line cord directly from the wall telephone jack to your
Brother machine’s LINE jack.
2
Remove the protective cap from your Brother machine’s EXT jack, and then
plug the telephone line cord from your answering machine into the EXT jack.
3
Set your answering machine to answer within 4 rings.
If you are having problems receiving faxes or voice messages, set your
answering machine to answer within 2 or 3 rings.
4
Record the outgoing message on your answering machine.
 Record five seconds of silence at the beginning of your outgoing
message.
 Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
 End your outgoing message with your Fax Receive Code for people
sending manual faxes. For example: “After the beep, leave a message or
press l51 and Start to send a fax.”
5
Set your answering machine to answer calls.
6
Set your Brother machine’s Receive Mode to External TAD. (See Receive
Mode settings on page 30.)
Make sure your Brother machine's Easy Receive feature is turned On. Easy
Receive is a feature that allows you to receive a fax even if you have answered
the call on an external or extension telephone. (See Easy Receive on page 31.)
If you often get transmission errors due to possible interference on the telephone
line, try changing the Compatibility setting to Basic(for VoIP). (See
Telephone line interference on page 95.)
(For MFC-7860DW)
Contact your administrator to check your Secure Function Lock Settings.

Troubleshooting
Sending faxes
Difficulties
Suggestions
Poor sending quality.
Try changing your resolution to Fine or S.Fine. Make a copy to check your
machine’s scanner operation. If the copy quality is not good, clean the scanner.
(See Cleaning the scanner in Appendix A of the Advanced User's Guide.)
Transmission Verification Report
says RESULT:NG.
There is probably temporary noise or static on the line. Try sending the fax again.
If you are sending a PC-Fax message and get RESULT:NG on the Transmission
Verification Report, your machine may be out of memory. To free up extra
memory, you can turn off fax storage (see Changing Remote Fax Options in
Chapter 4 of the Advanced User's Guide), print fax messages in memory (see
Printing a fax from the memory in Chapter 4 of the Advanced User's Guide) or
cancel a delayed fax or polling job (see Checking and canceling waiting jobs in
Chapter 3 of the Advanced User's Guide). If the problem continues, ask the
telephone company to check your telephone line.
If you often get transmission errors due to possible interference on the telephone
line, try changing the Compatibility setting to Basic(for VoIP). (See
Telephone line interference on page 95.)
Sent faxes are blank.
Make sure you are loading the document properly. (See Loading documents
on page 22.)
Vertical black lines when sending.
Black vertical lines on faxes you send are typically caused by dirt or correction fluid
on the glass strip. (See Cleaning the scanner in Appendix A of the Advanced
User's Guide.)
Cannot send a fax.
(For MFC-7860DW)
Contact your administrator to check your Secure Function Lock Settings.
Handling incoming calls
Difficulties
Suggestions
The machine ‘hears’ a voice as a
CNG tone.
If Easy Receive is set to On, your machine is more sensitive to sounds. It may
mistakenly interpret certain voices or music on the line as a fax machine calling
and respond with fax receiving tones. Deactivate the machine by pressing
Stop/Exit. Try avoiding this problem by turning Easy Receive to Off. (See Easy
Receive on page 31.)
Sending a fax call to the machine.
If you answered on an external or extension telephone, press your Fax Receive
Code (default setting is l51). When your machine answers, hang up.
Custom features on a single line.
If you have Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, Caller ID, RingMaster, Voice Mail,
an answering machine, an alarm system or other custom feature on a single
telephone line with your machine, it may create a problem sending or receiving
faxes.
For Example: If you subscribe to Call Waiting or some other custom service and
its signal comes through the line while your machine is sending or receiving a fax,
the signal can temporarily interrupt or disrupt the faxes. Brother’s ECM feature
should help overcome this problem. This condition is related to the telephone
system industry and is common to all devices that send and receive information
on a single, shared line with custom features. If avoiding a slight interruption is
crucial to your business, a separate line with no custom features is recommended.

manual feed slot on page 11.
 The paper tray may be too full. (See Loading paper on page 9.)
 Check the paper type and quality. (See Acceptable paper and
other print media on page 17.)
 Check for loose objects such as torn paper inside the machine.
 Verify that the two green envelope levers inside the back cover
are set to the same position.
 Verify that the two gray Anti-Curl Levers inside the back cover are

Troubleshooting
Examples of poor print quality
Recommendation
 Check the paper type and quality. High temperatures and high
humidity will cause paper to curl. (See Acceptable paper and
other print media on page 17.)
 If you do not use the machine often, the paper may have been in
the paper tray too long. Turn over the stack of paper in the paper
tray. Also, fan the paper stack and then rotate the paper 180 in
the paper tray.
 Open the back cover (face-up output tray) for the machine to eject
printed pages onto the face-up output tray.
Curled or wavy
 Choose Reduce Paper Curl mode in the printer driver when you
do not use our recommended paper. (See Other Print Options (for
Windows®) or Print Settings (For Macintosh) in the Software
User’s Guide.)
 Make sure that the paper is loaded properly. (See Loading paper
on page 9.)
