There are high voltage electrodes inside the
printer. Before you clean the inside of the
printer, make sure you have turned off the
power switch and unplugged the printer from
the AC power outlet.
Do not handle the plug with wet hands. Doing
this might cause an electrical shock.
After you have just used the printer, some
internal parts of the printer are extremely hot.
When you open the front or back cover of the
printer, never touch the shaded parts shown in

Open the back cover
(Back View)
The fuser unit is marked with a caution label.
Please do not remove or damage the label.
Do not use a vacuum cleaner to clean up scattered toner. Doing this might cause the toner dust to
ignite inside the vacuum cleaner, potentially starting a fire. Please carefully clean the toner dust with
a dry, lint-free cloth and dispose of it according to local regulations.
CAUTION
Cleaning the outside of the printer:
■ Make sure you have turned off the power switch and unplugged the printer from the AC power outlet.
■ Use neutral detergents. Cleaning with volatile liquids such as thinner or benzine will damage the outside
surface of the printer.
■ Do not use cleaning materials that contain ammonia.

5 above. Repeat for each page that you want to print.
Note
• Envelope joints that are sealed by the manufacturer should be secure.
• All sides of the envelope should be properly folded without wrinkles or creases.
• Remove each sheet or envelope immediately after printing. Stacking the sheets or envelopes may
cause the paper to jam or curl.

Types of envelopes to avoid
Do not use envelopes:
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
■

■
that are damaged, curled, wrinkled, or unusual shape
that are extremely shiny or textured
with clasps, 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 printer
that are pre-printed on the inside
that cannot be arranged when put in a pile
that are made of paper that weighs more than the paper weight specifications for the printer
that have been badly made, with edges that are not straight or consistently square
with windows, holes, cutouts or perforations
1
IF YOU USE ANY OF THE TYPES OF ENVELOPES LISTED ABOVE, THEY MAY DAMAGE YOUR PRINTER.
THIS DAMAGE IS NOT COVERED UNDER ANY BROTHER WARRANTY OR SERVICE AGREEMENT.
Note
• Do not put different types of paper in the paper tray at the same time because it may cause paper jams
or misfeeds.
• Do not print envelopes using duplex printing.
• For proper printing, you must choose the same paper size from your software application as the paper
in the tray.
• See What kind of paper can I use? on page 1-4.
Most envelopes will be suitable for your printer. However, some envelopes will 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 pieces 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 printer. Before you print a lot of envelopes, test
one to make sure that the print results are what you want.
Note
Brother will not recommend a particular envelope because envelope manufacturers may change the
envelope specifications. You are responsible for the quality and performance of the envelopes you use.

Duplex Printing
The supplied printer drivers for Windows® 95/98/Me, Windows NT® 4.0 and Windows® 2000/XP all allow
manual duplex printing. For more information about how to choose the settings, see the Help text in the
printer driver.
Guidelines for printing on both sides of the paper
■
■
■
■
If the paper is thin, it may wrinkle.
If paper is curled, straighten it and then put it back in the paper tray or the manual feed slot.
If the paper is not feeding properly, it may be curled. Remove the paper and straighten it.
When you use the manual duplex function, it is possible that there may be paper jams or poor print quality.
If there is a paper jam, see Paper jams and how to clear them on page 6-5.
Printing on both sides of the paper (manual duplex printing)

About this printer
Paper orientation for manual duplex printing
The printer prints the second page first.
If you print 10 pages on 5 sheets of paper, it will print page 2 then page 1 on the first sheet of paper.
It will print page 4 then page 3 on the second sheet of paper.
1
It will print page 6 then page 5 on the third sheet of paper, and so on.
When doing manual duplex printing, the paper must be put in the paper tray in the following way:
■ For the manual feed slot:
Put the side to be printed on first, face-up, with the leading edge (top) of the paper in first.
To print the second side, put the paper face down, with the leading edge (top) of the paper in first.
If letterhead paper is used, this would be put in with the heading face down, and in first.
To print the second side, put the heading face up and in first.
■ For the paper tray:
Put the side to be printed on first, face down, with the leading edge (top) of the paper at the front of the
tray.
To print the second side, put the paper face up, with the leading edge (top) of the paper at the front of the
tray.
If letterhead paper is used, this would be put in the paper tray with the heading face up, and at the front
of the tray.
To print the second page, put the heading face down and at the front of the tray.

cold water.
Note
• Be sure to seal up the toner cartridge tightly in a bag
so that toner powder does not spill out of the cartridge.
• Discard the used toner cartridge according to local
regulations, keeping it separate from domestic waste.
If you have questions, call your local waste disposal
office.

for a long time the toner life will be shortened.
If an unpacked drum unit is put in direct sunlight or room
light, the unit may be damaged.
Brother strongly recommends that you do not refill the toner
cartridge provided with your printer. We also strongly
recommend that you continue to use only Genuine Brother
Brand replacement toner cartridges. Using or attempting to
use potentially incompatible toner and/or toner cartridges in
your printer may cause damage to the printer itself and/or
it may result in unsatisfactory print quality. Our warranty
coverage does not apply to any problem that was caused
by the use of unauthorized third party toner and toner
cartridges. To protect your investment and guarantee your
print quality please continue to replace consumed toner
cartridges with only Genuine Brother Branded Supplies.
Printing with a third-party toner or third-party toner cartridge
may reduce not only the print quality but also the quality
and life of the printer itself. It may also cause serious
damage to the performance and life of a drum unit.
Warranty coverage does not apply to problems caused by
the use of third-party toner or third-party toner cartridges.
Put the toner cartridge in the drum unit immediately after
you have removed the protective cover. Do not touch the
shaded parts shown in the illustrations to prevent any
degradation to the print quality.

Routine maintenance
Drum unit
This printer can print up to 12,000 pages* with one drum unit.
*
At 5% print coverage (A4 or Letter size). The actual number of printed pages will vary depending on the average type
of print job and paper.
Note
• There are many factors that determine the actual drum life, such as the temperature, humidity, type of
paper, type of toner used, number of pages per print job and so on. Under ideal conditions, the
average drum life is estimated at up to 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 printer should be used only in a clean,
dust-free environment with adequate ventilation.
• Printing with a third-party drum unit may reduce not only the print quality but also the quality and life
of the printer itself. Warranty coverage does not apply to problems caused by the use of third-party
drum unit.
Change Drum message
If the LED shows the message below, it means the drum unit is near the end of its life. We recommend that
you replace the drum unit with a new one before there is a noticeable deterioration in the print quality.
CAUTION

Appendix
Important information for choosing your paper
This section provides information to help you choose paper to use with this printer.
Note
If you use paper other than the ones recommended, a paper jam or misfeeding may occur in the printer. See
Recommended paper on page 1-5.
Before you purchase a large quantity of paper
Make sure the paper is suitable for the printer.
Paper for plain paper copies
Paper is divided by usage, such as paper for printing and paper for copying. The usage is usually specified
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
The basis weight of the paper in general use varies in different countries. We recommend that you use paper
that weighs between 75 and 90 g/m2 (20 and 24 lb), although this printer 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
The pulp fiber of the paper is aligned during paper manufacturing. What we call long grain paper is paper
where the fiber is parallel to the paper carriage direction of the paper.
Paper can be classified into two types, long grain and short grain. Long grain paper’s fiber direction is parallel
to the carriage direction of the paper in the printer. Short grain paper’s fiber direction is vertical to the carriage
direction of the paper in the printer. Though most plain paper for copying is long grain, some is short grain.
We recommend that you use long grain paper for this printer. Short grain paper is too weak for the paper
carriage of the printer.
Acid paper and neutralized paper
Paper can be classified as either acid paper or neutralized paper.
Though modern paper manufacture methods started with acid paper, recently neutralized paper is taking the
place of acid paper because of environment or preservation issues.
However, many forms of acid paper can be found in recycled paper. We recommend that you use neutralized
paper for this printer.
You can use an acid paper check pen to distinguish acid paper from neutral paper.

Appendix
Print surface
The characteristics may differ a little between the face side and reverse side of a sheet of paper.
Usually, the opening side of the ream of paper package is the print side. Follow any indication of the print side
on the paper package. Typically, the print side is indicated by an arrow.
A
Moisture content
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
characteristic 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 is between 50% and
60%.
