Safety Information
IMPORTANT - For Your Safety
To ensure safe operation the three-pin plug supplied must be inserted only into a standard
three-pin power point which is properly grounded through the normal household wiring.
Extension cords used with this printer must be three-pin plug type and correctly wired to
provide proper grounding. Incorrectly wired extension cords may cause personal injury an
equipment damage.
The fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily does not imply that the power is
grounded and that the installation is completely safe. For your safety, if in any doubt about
the effective grounding of the power, consult a qualified electrician.
Disconnect device
This printer must be installed near a power outlet that is easily accessible. In case of
emergencies, you must disconnect the power cord from the power outlet to shut off the
power completely.
Geräuschemission / Acoustic Noise Emission (For Germany Only)
Lpa < 70 dB (A) DIN 45635-19-01-KL2
Wiring Information (For U.K. Only)
Important
If the mains plug supplied with this printer is not suitable for your socket outlet, remove the
plug from the mains cord and fit an appropriate three pin plug. If the replacement plug is
intended to take a fuse then fit the same rating fuse as the original.
If a moulded plug is severed from the mains cord then it should be destroyed because a
plug with cut wires is dangerous if engaged in a live socket outlet. Do not leave it where a
child might find it!
In the event of replacing the plug fuse, fit a fuse approved byASTA to BS1362 with the
same rating as the original fuse.
Always replace the fuse cover. Never use a plug with the cover omitted.
WARNING - THIS PRINTER MUST BE EARTHED
The wires in the mains cord are coloured in accordance with the following code :
GREEN AND YELLOW :
EARTH
BLUE :
NEUTRAL
BROWN :
LIVE
The colours of the wires in the mains lead of this printer may not correspond with the
coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug.
If you need to fit a different plug, proceed as follows.
xv
Remove a length of the cord outer sheath, taking care not to damage the coloured
insulation of the wires inside.
Cut each of the three wires to the appropriate length. If the construction of the plug permits,
leave the green and yellow wire longer than the others so that, in the event that the cord is
pulled out of the plug, the green and yellow wire will be the last to disconnect.
Remove a short section of the coloured insulation to expose the wires.
The wire which is coloured green and yellow must be connected to the terminal in the plug
, or coloured green or
which is marked with the letter “E” or by the safety earth symbol
green and yellow.
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the
letter “N” or coloured black or blue.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with
the letter “L” or coloured red or brown.
The outer sheath of the cord must be secured inside the plug. The coloured wires should
not hang out of the plug.

When printing, the inside tray automatically rises to feed paper into the
printer.
If envelopes get smudged during printing, set the print density to a
higher value in the QUALITY mode with the control panel setting for
darker printouts. To adjust the print density setting, see Chapter 3.
Envelope joints that are sealed by the manufacturer should be secure.
All sides should be properly folded without any wrinkles or creases.
Most envelopes will perform acceptably on your printer. However, some
envelopes will have feed and print quality problems because of their
construction. A suitable envelope should have edges with straight, well
creased folds and should not have more than two thicknesses of paper
along the leading edge. The envelope should lie flat and not have baggy or
flimsy construction. Purchase quality envelopes only from a supplier who
understands that the envelopes will be used in a laser printer. All envelopes
should be tested prior to use to ensure desirable print results.
✒ Note
The manufacturer neither warrants nor recommends the use of a particular
envelope because envelope properties are subject to change by the
envelope manufacturer. The entire responsibility for the quality and
performance of envelopes lies with the customer.

load paper only from the multi-purpose tray.
✒ Note
When you feed paper manually, note the following:
• If your application software supports a manual feed selection in the print
menu, you can select it through the software. Since the software or
command setting overrides the switch setting, you do not need to set the
MANUAL FEED mode and the paper size in PAPER mode.
• If you use pre-printed paper in the multi-purpose tray, the paper should
be inserted top edge first with the pre-printed side face up.

Automatic Emulation Selection
This printer has an Automatic emulation selection function. When the printer
receives data from the computer, it automatically selects the emulation
mode. This function has been factory set to ON.
The printer can select the emulation among the following combinations:
EPSON (default)
HP LaserJet
BR-Script 3
HP-GL
EPSON FX-850
IBM
HP LaserJet
BR-Script 3
HP-GL
IBM Proprinter XL
You can select the emulation mode manually in the EMULATION menu in
SETUP mode by using the control panel. For more information, see
Chapter 3.
2–20
CHAPTER 2 DRIVER AND SOFTWARE
✒ Note
When you use the Automatic emulation selection, note the following:
•
The EPSON or IBM emulation mode priority must be selected, because
the printer cannot distinguish between them. Since the factory setting is
the EPSON emulation mode, you might need to select the IBM
emulation mode in the EMULATION menu in SETUP mode by using the
control panel.
•
Try Automatic emulation selection with your application software or
network server. If it does not work properly, select the emulation mode
manually using either the printer control panel switches or the
emulation selection commands from your software.
2–21
Automatic Interface Selection
This printer has an Automatic interface selection function. When the printer
receives data from the computer, it automatically selects the interface that is
appropriate.
When you use the parallel interface, you can turn the high-speed and bidirectional parallel communications on or off in the parallel menu using the
control panel in INTERFACE mode. For more information, see Chapter 3.
Since the automatic interface selection mode has been factory set to ON,
simply connect the interface cable to the printer.
When you use the serial interface, you need to have the same
communications settings on both the printer and the computer. Since the
automatic interface selection mode has been factory set with certain
settings, you may be able to simply connect the interface cable to the printer
if your computer has the settings listed below.
Communications parameters
Baud rate (data transfer speed)
Code type (data length)

If a Network board (Brother NC-4100h) has been installed, use the control
panel to select NETWORK.
When necessary, use the control panel in the INTERFACE mode to select
the interface or the serial communications parameters manually. For more
information, see Chapter 3. For the computer settings, see the manual for
the computer or software you are using.
2–22
CHAPTER 2 DRIVER AND SOFTWARE
✒ Note
When you use the Automatic interface selection, note the following:
•
This function takes a few seconds to work. If you want to speed up
printing, select the required interface manually in the SELECT menu by
using the control panel in the INTERFACE mode.
If you constantly use only one interface, we recommend that you select that
interface in the INTERFACE mode. The printer allocates the entire input
buffer to that interface when only one interface is selected.

You can use the reprint function when the printer is READY or in the
settings menu.
When you want to print PROOF, PUBLIC or SECURE data, we recommend
installing the optional HDD or CompactFlash card.
If you do not install an HDD (See Hard Disk Drive (HD-6G/HD-EX) in
Chapter 4) or CompactFlash card (see “CompactFlash Card” in Chapter 4),
you can reprint from RAM.

When you increase the RAM size for secure printing, the work area of the
printer is decreased and the printer performance will be reduced. Ensure
that you reset the RAMSIZE to 0MB when you have finished using secure
printing.
When you store the data in RAM, the data will be deleted when the printer
power is turned off.
We also recommend adding additional RAM if you want to be able to print a
large amount of secure data. (See “RAM Expansion” in Chapter 4)

Replacing the Toner Cartridge
Toner cartridge (TN-9500)
The toner cartridge is in a bag inside the toner cartridge carton.
A new toner cartridge contains enough toner to print up to approximately
11,000 A4/Letter-size single-sided pages at about 5% coverage (if the print
density is set at level 0).
Fig. 5-1
5–1
✒ Note

•
This toner cartridge is a single-component cartridge. The microfine
toner does not become magnetized.
The toner cartridge is packed inside a bag. Do not open it until
immediately before you install the toner cartridge. The toner cartridge
must not be exposed to light for a long time.
Do not expose the toner cartridge to direct light.
Do not stand the toner cartridge on its end or turn it upside down.
Do not open the drum shutter because it might cause serious damage,
resulting in poor print quality.
Do not touch the shaded parts shown below.
Toner consumption varies according to the image coverage on the page
and the print density setting.
The greater the image coverage, the greater the toner consumption.
If you change the print density setting for lighter or darker printing, toner
consumption varies accordingly.
Use a genuine Brother toner cartridge that is specially formulated to
ensure optimum print quality.
Printing with a 3rd party toner or 3rd 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 3rd party toner or 3rd party toner cartridges.

The printer prints unexpectedly •
or it prints garbage.
The printer cannot print full
pages of a document.
Make sure the printer cable is not too long. We recommend that
you use a parallel cable of less than 2 metres (6.6 feet) in length.
•
Check if the printer cable is damaged or broken.
•
If you are using an interface-switching device, remove it and then
connect your computer directly to your printer and try again.
•
Check that the appropriate printer driver is selected as ‘Set as
Default’.
•
Check that the printer is not connected to the same port that is
also connected to a mass storage device or scanner. Remove all
other devices and then connect the port only to the printer.
•
Turn off printer status reporting in the Device/Options tab in the
printer driver.
•
Press the Go switch to print the data remaining in the printer.
•
If this does not clear the error, reduce the complexity of your
document or reduce the print resolution.

Creates bar codes or expanded characters according to the segment of
parameters “n … n”. For more information about parameters, see the
following “Definition of Parameters.” This command must end with the
“ \ ” code (5CH).
[Definition of Parameters]
This bar code command can have the following parameters in the parameter
segment (n … n). Since parameters are effective within the single command
syntax ESC i n … n \, they don’t take effect in the subsequent bar code
commands. If certain parameters are not specified, they take the default
settings. The last parameter must be the bar code data start (“b” or “B”) or
the expanded character data start (“l” or “L”). Other parameters can be
specified in any sequence. The prefix of each parameter can be a lowercase or upper-case character: for example, “t0” or “T0”, “s3” or “S3”, etc.

Forty three characters “0” to “9”, “A” to “Z”, “-”, “ . ”, “ (space)”, “$”, “ / ”, “+”,
and “%” can be accepted as bar code data. Other characters cause 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 its 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 data error. The number of characters for bar codes is not
limited. Since this mode of bar codes require even characters, if the bar
code data has odd characters, the zero character “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 1 digit of data can be printed. Uppercase
and lowercase alphabet characters can be accepted.
•
When Post Net (US-Post Net) is selected with the parameter “t4” or “T4”:
Characters “0” to “9” can be data and it must be terminated by a check digit.
“?” can be used in place of the check digit.

APPENDIX
• When EAN 8, EAN 13, or UPC A is selected with the parameter “t5” or
“T5”:
Ten numerical characters “0” to “9” can be accepted as bar code data. The
number of characters for bar codes is limited as follows.
EAN 8:
EAN 13:
UPC A:
Total 8 digits (7 digits + 1 check digit)
Total 13 digits (12 digits + 1 check digit)
Total 12 digits (11 digits + 1 check digit)
A number of characters other than above causes data error and the bar
code data is printed as normal print data. If the check digit is incorrect, the
printer calculates the correct check digit automatically so that the correct bar
code data will be printed. When EAN13 is selected, adding “+” and a 2-or 5digit number after the data can create an add-on code.
•
When UPC-E is selected with the parameter “t6” or “T6”:
The numerical characters “0” to “9” can be accepted as bar code data.
(1)
8 digits
Standard format. The first character
must be “0” and the data must be terminated by
a check digit.
Total 8 digits = “0” + 6 digits + 1 check digit.
(2)
6 digits
The first character and the last
check digit are removed from the 8 digit data.
*1: For 8 digits, “?” can be used in place of a check digit.
*2: Adding “+” and 2- or 5-digit number after the data creates
an add-on code for all 6 and 8 digit formats.
• When Codabar is selected 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 uppercase or
lowercase. If there is no start-stop code, errors occur. A check digit cannot
be added and using “?” causes errors.
•
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” respectively:
Code 128 sets A, B and C are individually selectable. Set A encodes
characters Hex 00 … 5F. Set B encodes characters Hex 20 … 7F. Set C
encodes numeric pairs 00 … 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 1
character only) from set A to set B and vice versa. The “%” character can be
encoded by sending it twice.
Appendix–41
•
When ISBN (EAN) is selected with the parameter “t130” or “T130”:
Same rules apply as for “t5” or “T5”
•
When ISBN (UPC-E) is selected with the parameter “t131” or “T131”:
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” respectively:
Same rules apply as for “t12” or “T12”, “t13” or “T13”, or “t14” or “T14."
♦
Box Drawing
ESC i … E (or e)
“E” or “e” is a terminator.
♦
Line Block Drawing
ESC i … V (or v)
“V” or “v” is a terminator.
♦
Expanded Character Data Start
n = “l” or “L”
Data that follows “l” or “L” is read as expanded character data (or labeling
data). Expanded character data must end with the “ \ ” code (5CH), which
also terminates this command.
