Who is covered:
„ This limited warranty (“warranty”) is given
only to the original end-use/retail purchaser
(referred to in this warranty as “Original
Purchaser”) of the accompanying product,
consumables and accessories (collectively
referred to in this warranty as “this
Product”).
„ If you purchased a product from someone
other than an authorized Brother reseller in
the United States or if the product was used
(including but not limited to floor models or
refurbished product), prior to your
purchase you are not the Original
Purchaser and the product that you
purchased is not covered by this warranty.

„ This Product includes a Machine and
Consumable and Accessory Items.
Consumable and Accessory Items include
but are not limited to print heads, toner,
drums, ink cartridges, print cartridges, refill
ribbons, therma PLUS paper and thermal
paper.
„ Except as otherwise provided herein,
Brother warrants that the Machine and the
accompanying
Consumable
and
Accessory Items will be free from defects in
materials and workmanship, when used
under normal conditions.
„ This warranty applies only to products
purchased and used in the United States.
For products purchased in, but used
outside, the United States, this warranty
covers only warranty service within the
United States (and does not include
shipping outside the United States).
What is the length of the Warranty Periods:
„ Machines: one year from the original
purchase date.
„ Accompanying
Consumable
and
Accessory Items: 90 days from the original
purchase date or the rated life of
consumable, whichever comes first.
What is NOT covered:
This warranty does not cover:
1 Physical damage to this Product;
2 Damage caused by improper installation,
improper or abnormal use, misuse, neglect
or accident (including but not limited to
transporting this Product without the proper
preparation and/or packaging);
iv
3 Damage caused by another device or
software used with this Product (including
but not limited to damage resulting from
use of non Brother®-brand parts and
Consumable and Accessory Items);
4 Consumable and Accessory Items that
expired in accordance with a rated life; and,
5 Problems arising from other than defects in
materials or workmanship.
6 Normal Periodic Maintenance Items, such
as Paper Feeding Kit, Fuser and Laser
Units.
This limited warranty is VOID if this Product
has been altered or modified in any way
(including but not limited to attempted warranty
repair without authorization from Brother
and/or alteration/removal of the serial
number).
What to do if you think your Product is
eligible for warranty service:
Report your issue to either our Customer
Service Hotline at 1-800-284-4329 for Fax,
MFC and DCP and 1-800-276-7746 for
Printers, or to a Brother Authorized Service
Center within the applicable warranty
period. Supply Brother or the Brother
Authorized Service Center with a copy of your
dated bill of sale showing that this Product was
purchased within the U.S. For the name of
local Brother Authorized Service Center(s),
call 1-800-521-2846.
What Brother will ask you to do:
After contacting Brother or a Brother
Authorized Service Center, you may be
required to deliver (by hand if you prefer) or
send the Product properly packaged, freight
prepaid, to the Authorized Service Center
together with a photocopy of your bill of sale.
You are responsible for the cost of
shipping, packing product, and insurance
(if you desire). You are also responsible for
loss or damage to this Product in shipping.
What Brother will do:
If the problem reported concerning your
Machine and/or accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items is covered by this
warranty and if you first reported the problem
to Brother or an Authorized Service Center
within the applicable warranty period, Brother
or its Authorized Service Center will repair or
replace the Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items at no
charge to you for parts or labor. The decision
as to whether to repair or replace the Machine
and/or accompanying Consumable and
Accessory Items is made by Brother in its sole
Brother® One Year Limited Warranty and Replacement Service
(USA only)
discretion. Brother reserves the right to supply
a refurbished or remanufactured replacement
Machine and/or accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items and use refurbished
parts provided such replacement products
conform to the manufacturer's specifications
for new product/parts. The repaired or
replacement Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items will be
returned to you freight prepaid or made
available for you to pick up at a conveniently
located Authorized Service Center.
If the Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items are not
covered by this warranty (either stage), you
will be charged for shipping the Machine
and/or accompanying Consumable and
Accessory Items back to you and charged for
any service and/or replacement parts/products
at Brother's then current published rates.
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
replacement Machine that is sent to you and
your original Machine shall become the
property of Brother. Retain your original
Accessory Items and a copy of the return
freight bill, signed by the courier.
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 repair or replacement as described
above, Brother shall not be liable for any
direct, indirect, incidental or consequential
damages or specific relief. Because some
states do not allow the exclusion or limitation
of consequential or incidental damages, the
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.
Important:
We recommend that you keep 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 User's Guide 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
User's Guide 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.

Acceptable paper and
other media
The print quality can be affected by the type
of paper you are using 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.
Recommended media
2
To get the best print quality, we suggest using
Brother paper. (See the table below.)
We recommend using ‘3M Transparency
Film’ when you print on transparencies.
Brother paper
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 proper media in the
‘Basic’ tab of the printer driver or in the
Paper Type setting of the menu.
„ When you print on Brother photo paper,
load the instruction sheet included with the
photo paper in the paper tray first, and
then put the photo paper on the instruction
sheet.
„ When you use transparencies or photo
paper, remove each sheet at once to
prevent smudging or paper jams.
„ Avoid touching the printed surface of the
paper immediately after printing; the
surface may not be completely dry and
may stain your fingers.

Handling and using media
„ Store paper in its original packaging, and
keep it sealed. Keep the paper flat and
away from moisture, direct sunlight and
heat.
„ The coated side of photo paper is shiny.
Avoid touching the shiny (coated) side.
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.

When a digital camera formats a media
card it creates a special folder into which it
copies image data. If you need to modify
the image data stored on a media 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 media 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.
„ PhotoCapture light is off, the media card
is not properly inserted.
CAUTION
DO NOT unplug the power cord or remove
the media card from the media drive (slot)
while the machine is reading or writing to

XXXX
CAUTION
f
Lift the lock release lever and push it
until it clicks, and then close the ink
cartridge cover.
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 stains your skin or clothing, wash with
soap or detergent at once.
If you mix the colors by installing an ink
cartridge in the wrong position, clean the
print head several times after correcting the
cartridge installation.
g
If you replaced an ink cartridge, the LCD
may ask you to verify that it was a brand
new one. (For example,
Did You Change Black) For each
new cartridge you installed, press
+ (Yes) to automatically reset the ink dot
counter for that color. If the ink cartridge
you installed is not a brand new one, be
sure to press - (No).
If you wait until the LCD shows
Near Empty and Ink Empty, the
machine will automatically reset the ink
dot counter.
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.
Note
If the LCD shows No Cartridge after
you install the ink cartridges, check that
the ink cartridges are installed properly.

Specifications

Ink
The machine uses individual Black, Yellow, Cyan and Magenta ink
cartridges that are separate from the print head assembly.
Service Life of Ink
Cartridge
The first time you install the ink cartridges the machine will use extra
ink to fill the ink delivery tubes. This is a one-time process that
enables high quality printing. Afterward, replacement ink cartridges
will print the specified number of pages.
Replacement Ink Cartridges
Standard Black - Approximately 500 pages at 5% coverage
Yellow, Cyan and Magenta - Approximately 400 pages at 5%
coverage
The above figures are based upon the following assumptions:
„ Continuous printing at a resolution of 600 × 600 dpi in normal
mode after installing new ink cartridge;
„ The printing frequency;
„ The number of pages printed;
„ Periodic, automatic, print head assembly cleaning (Your
machine will clean the print head assembly periodically. This
process will use a small amount of ink); and,
„ Ink remaining in cartridge identified as ‘empty’ (It is necessary to
leave a small amount of ink in the ink cartridge to prevent air
from drying out and damaging the print head assembly).
