Acceptable paper and
other print media
The print quality can be affected by the type
of paper you use in the machine.
To get the best print quality for the settings
you have chosen, always set the Paper Type
to match the type of paper you load.
You can use plain paper, inkjet paper (coated
paper), glossy paper, transparencies and
envelopes.
We recommend testing various paper types
before buying large quantities.
For best results, use the Brother paper.
„ When you print on inkjet paper (coated
paper), transparencies and glossy paper,
be sure to choose the correct print media
in the ‘Basic’ tab of the printer driver or in
the Paper Type setting of the menu.
Recommended print media
2
2
To get the best print quality, we suggest using
Brother paper. (See table below.)
If Brother paper is not available in your
country, we recommend testing various
papers before purchasing large quantities.

We recommend using ‘3M Transparency
Film’ when you print on transparencies.

„ Store paper in its original packaging, and
keep it sealed. Keep the paper flat and
away from moisture, direct sunlight and
heat.
„ Avoid touching the shiny (coated) side of
photo paper. Load photo paper with the
shiny side facing down.
„ Avoid touching either side of
transparencies because they absorb
water and perspiration easily, and this
may cause decreased output quality.
Transparencies designed for laser
printers/copiers may stain your next
document. Use only transparencies
recommended for inkjet printing.
„ You can only print on both sides of the
paper with PC printing. See Printing for
Windows® in the Software User’s Guide
on the CD-ROM.

Your machine is designed to be compatible
with modern digital camera image files, USB
Flash memory drive or memory cards;
however, please read the points below to
avoid errors:
„ The image file extension must be .JPG
(Other image file extensions like .JPEG,
.TIF, .GIF and so on will not be
recognized).
„ PhotoCapture Center™ printing without
using a PC must be performed separately
from PhotoCapture Center™ operations
using the PC. (Simultaneous operation is
not available.)
„ IBM Microdrive™ is not compatible with
the machine.
„ The machine can read up to 999 files on a
memory card.
„ This product supports xD-Picture Card™
includes Type M / Type M+ / Type H
(Large Capacity).
„ The DPOF file on the memory cards must
be in a valid DPOF format. (See DPOF
printing on page 35.)
Please be aware of the following:
„ When printing the Print Index or Print
Images, the PhotoCapture Center™ will
print all valid images, even if one or more
images have been corrupted. Corrupted
image will not be printed.
„ (Memory card users)
Your machine is designed to read memory
cards that have been formatted by a digital
camera.
When a digital camera formats a memory
card it creates a special folder into which it
copies image data. If you need to modify
the image data stored on a memory card
with your PC, we recommend that you do
not modify the folder structure created by
the digital camera. When saving new or
modified image files to the memory card
we also recommend you use the same
folder your digital camera uses. If the data
is not saved to the same folder, the
machine may not be able to read the file or
print the image.

This machine supports USB Flash
memory drives that have been formatted

Original cartridge stay usable for up to two years if kept in their original
packaging.)
„ The ink cartridge was in your machine over six months.
„ The ink cartridge may not have been stored correctly before use.
Try using the recommended types of paper. (See Acceptable paper and other print

Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper
with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.
Printing appears dirty or ink seems
to run.
Make sure you are using the recommended types of paper. (See Acceptable
paper and other print media on page 13.) Don't handle the paper until the ink is
dry.
If you are using photo paper, make sure that you have set the correct paper type.
If you are printing a photo from your PC, set the Media Type in the Basic tab of
the printer driver.
Make sure you are using Brother Original Innobella™ ink.

the error and shows an error message. The most common error and maintenance messages are
shown below.
You can correct most errors and routine maintenance messages by yourself. If you need more
help, the Brother Solutions Center offers latest FAQs and troubleshooting tips.

Routine maintenance
Replacing the ink cartridges
Your machine is equipped with an ink dot
counter. The ink dot counter automatically
monitors the level of ink in each of the 4
cartridges. When the machine detects an ink
cartridge is running out of ink, the machine
will tell you with a message on the LCD.
Note
For example, when one of the ink
cartridge is nearly empty, the LCD will
display Ink Low (name of colour).
You should purchase a replacement
cartridge in preparation for when the
machine indicates the colour is completely
empty.
When one of the ink cartridge is empty,
the LCD will display Cannot Print or
B&W Print Only.
You should only replace the actual ink
cartridge when this message Cannot
Print or B&W Print Only appears on
the LCD.
The LCD will tell you which ink cartridge is low
or needs replacing. Be sure to follow the LCD
prompts to replace the ink cartridges in the
correct order.
Even though the machine tells you that an ink
cartridge is empty, there will be a small
amount of ink left in the ink cartridge. It is
necessary to keep some ink in the ink
cartridge to prevent air from drying out and
damaging the print head assembly.

CAUTION

Brother multifunction machines are
designed to work with ink of a particular
specification and will work to a level of
optimum performance and reliability when
used with genuine Brother Branded ink
cartridges. Brother cannot guarantee this
optimum performance other brands of ink
or ink cartridges, and reliability if ink or ink
cartridges of other specifications are used.
Brother does not therefore recommend the
use of cartridges other than genuine
Brother Branded cartridges or the refilling of
empty cartridges with ink from other
sources. If damage is caused to the print
head or other parts of this machine as a
result of using other brands of ink or ink
cartridges, any repairs required as a result
may not be covered by the warranty.

Note
• If you replaced an ink cartridge, for
example Black, the LCD may ask you to
verify that it was a brand new one
(Did You Change Blck?). For each
new cartridge you installed, press a (Yes)
to automatically reset the ink dot counter
for that colour. If the ink cartridge you
installed is not a brand new one, be sure
to press b (No).
• If the LCD shows No Cartridge or
Cannot Detect after you install the ink
cartridge, check that the ink cartridges are
installed correctly.
Once you open an ink cartridge, install it in
the machine and use it up within six months
of installation. Use unopened ink cartridges
by the expiration date written on the
cartridge package.
DO NOT dismantle or tamper with the ink
cartridge, this can cause the ink to leak out
of the cartridge.
Cleaning the outside of the
machine
Clean the outside of the machine as
follows:
WARNING
If ink gets in your eyes, wash them out with
water at once and call a doctor if you are
concerned.
CAUTION
DO NOT take out ink cartridges if you do
not need to replace them. If you do so, it
may reduce the ink quantity and the
machine will not know the quantity of ink left
in the cartridge.
DO NOT touch the cartridge insertion slots.
If you do so, the ink may stain your skin.
If ink gets on your skin or clothing
immediately wash it off with soap or
detergent.
If you mix the colours by installing an ink
cartridge in the wrong position, clean the
print head several times after correcting the
cartridge installation.
70
CAUTION
Use neutral detergents. Cleaning with
volatile liquids such as thinner or benzine
will damage the outside surface of the
machine.
DO NOT use cleaning materials that
contain ammonia.
DO NOT use isopropyl alcohol to remove
dirt from the control panel. It may crack the
panel.

Cleaning the print head
To maintain print quality, the machine will
automatically clean the print head when
needed. You can start the cleaning process
manually if there is a print quality problem.
Clean the print head and ink cartridges if you
get a horizontal line or blank text in the text or
graphics on your printed pages. You can
clean Black only, three colours at a time
(Cyan/Yellow/Magenta), or all four colours at
once.
Cleaning the print head consumes ink.
