Laser Safety (120 V Model Only)
This printer is certified as a Class I laser product under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
(DHHS) Radiation Performance Standard according to the Radiation Control for Health and Safety Act of
1968. This means that the printer does not produce hazardous laser radiation.
Since radiation emitted inside the printer is completely confined within protective housings and external
covers, the laser beam cannot escape from the machine during any phase of user operation. However, the
machine contains 5-milliwat, 700-800 nanometer wavelength, GaAIAs laser diodes. Direct (or indirect
reflected) eye contact with the laser beam might cause serious eye damage. Safety precautions and interlock
mechanisms have been designed to prevent any possible laser beam exposure to the operator.
FDA Regulations (For 120 V Model Only)
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has implemented regulations for laser products manufactured on and
after August 2, 1976. Compliance is mandatory for products marketed in the United States. The label shown on
the back of the printer indicates compliance with the FDA regulations and must be attached to laser products
marketed in the United States.

Safety Information
IMPORTANT - For Your Safety
To ensure safe operation the supplied three-pin plug must be inserted only into a standard three-pin
power outlet that is properly grounded through the normal household wiring.
Extension cords should not be used with the equipment. If it is essential that an extension cord has
to be used, it must be a three-pin plug type and correctly wired to provide proper grounding.
Incorrectly wired extension cords may cause personal injury and 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.
Caution
Use of controls or adjustment or performance of procedures other than those specified in this manual
might result in hazardous radiation exposure.
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.
Caution for batteries
Do not replace the battery. There is a danger of explosion if the battery is incorrectly replaced. Do
not disassemble, recharge or dispose of by fire. Used batteries should be disposed of according to
local regulations.
Caution for LAN connection
Connect this product to the LAN connection which is not subjected to overvoltages.

REGULATIONS
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 by ASTA 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 PROPERLY EARTHED.
The wires in the mains cord are colored in accordance with the following code:
Green and yellow:
Blue:
Brown:
Earth
Neutral
Live
The colors of the wires in the main lead of this printer may not correspond with the colored markings
identifying the terminals in your plug.
If you need to fit a different plug, proceed as follows.
Remove a length of the cord outer sheath, taking care not to damage the colored 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 colored insulation to expose the wires.
The wire which is colored green and yellow must be connected to the terminal in the plug which is marked with
the letter “E” or by the safety earth symbol or colored green or green and yellow.
The wire which is colored blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter “N” or
colored black or blue.
The wire which is colored brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter “L” or
colored red or brown.
The outer sheath of the cord must be secured inside the plug. The colored wires should not hang out of the plug.

format.
Panel Lock Function
If the panel button settings have been changed, the printer may not work as
you expect. If you are an administrator of this printer, you can lock your
settings to prevent changes from being made. See “LOCK PANEL” in the
“SETUP” menu in Chapter 4.
Power Save Mode
This printer has a power save mode. Since laser printers consume power to
keep the fixing assembly at a high temperature, this feature can save
electricity when the printer is on but not being used. The factory setting of
the Power Save mode is ON so that it complies with the new EPA Energy
Star specification.

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/IBM Priority
EPSON (default)
IBM
Auto Selection Mode
HP PCL 5C
HP PCL 5C
BR-Script 3
BR-Script 3
HP-GL
HP-GL
EPSON FX-850
IBM Proprinter XL
To get the best possible color output, we recommend that you use the
Brother BR-Script 3 emulation.
The printer is set to the HP color printer emulation (PCL5C) mode
automatically. Since PCL5C mode takes the highest priority in the
automatic emulation selection, in most cases you can start using the printer
as it is with the factory settings.
Note
Emulation modes other than PCL5C and BR-Script 3 are monochrome
emulation modes.
3-1
CHAPTER 3 BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
You can select the emulation mode manually by using the control panel to
access the EMULATION menu in SETUP mode. For more information, see
Chapter 4.
Note
When you use 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
EPSON emulation mode, you might need to select the IBM emulation
mode by using the control panel to access the EMULATION menu in
SETUP mode.
• Try Automatic emulation selection with your application software or
network server. If it does not work properly, select the emulation mode
manually by using either the printer control panel or the emulation
selection commands in your software.

CHAPTER 3 BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
AUTOMATIC INTERFACE SELECTION
This printer has an automatic interface selection function. When the printer
receives data from the computer, it automatically selects the IEEE 1284
Parallel or USB interface, whichever is appropriate.
When you use the parallel interface, you can turn the high-speed and bidirectional parallel communications on or off by using the control panel to
access the PARALLEL menu in INTERFACE mode. For more information,
see Chapter 4. Since the automatic interface selection mode has been
factory set to ON, simply connect the interface cable to the printer. (Note:
Always turn off both your computer and printer when connecting or
disconnecting the cable).
When necessary, select the interface or the serial communications
parameters manually by using the control panel to access the INTERFACE
mode. For more information, see Chapter 4. For the settings on your
computer, please refer to your user’s manual for your computer or
application software.

CHAPTER 3 BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
Note
When you use 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 by using the control panel
to access the SELECT menu in INTERFACE mode.
If you typically use only one interface, we recommend that you select that
interface in the INTERFACE mode. If only one interface is selected, the
printer will allocate the entire input buffer to that interface.

Avoid using envelopes with the following characteristics:
• Glossy or shiny surfaces
• Protection cover on the envelopes’ adhesive parts
• Sealing flaps that have not been folded at purchase
• Sealing flaps as shown below
• Three or more layers of paper in the marked area
• Each side folded as shown below
Fig. 3-5
3-13
CHAPTER 3 BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
Before loading envelopes in the cassette, check the following:
• Envelopes should have a lengthwise sealing flap.
• The sealing flaps should be folded crisply and correctly (irregularly cut
or folded envelopes may cause paper jams).
• Envelopes should consist of two layers of paper in the following
marked area.
Fig. 3-6
• Envelope joints that are sealed by the manufacturer should be secure.
• All sides should be properly folded without any wrinkles or creases.
• Print quality may vary between different style envelopes. It is a good
idea to test the envelopes you wish to use prior to purchasing large
quantities.
3-14
CHAPTER 3 BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
CAASSSSEETTTTEE FEEEEDD
The printer can feed paper from the Paper Cassette, Optional Lower Paper
Cassette or Optional A4/Letter Cassette.
Note
When you load paper into the Paper Cassette, note the following:
• If your application software supports paper size selection on the print
menu, you can select it through the software. If your application software
does not support it, you can set the paper size in the printer driver or
from the control panel.
• The paper size has been factory set to letter for 120V models or A4 for
220/240V models. If you want to use other size of paper or envelopes,
change the paper size in the PAPER menu of the PRINT MENU using
the control panel. For paper size selection, see “PRINT MENU” in
Chapter 4.
• If you use pre-printed paper in the cassettes, please note that the paper
should be loaded with the printed side face up and the top edge of the
paper at the back of the cassette.
The printer automatically detects the paper size you have loaded into the
Paper Cassette. If you load a different size of paper into the paper cassette
from the size that was selected from the control panel or in your application
software, the printer will prompt you to load the correct size of paper as
follows:
SIZE MISMATCH
Paper mismatch between the Printer and
the Printer Driver setting. Load Paper
<size> size into Tray <1/2/3>
3-15
CHAPTER 3 BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
MAANNUUAALL FEEEEDD
Since this printer does not have a manual feed or multi-purpose tray, you
cannot manually feed irregular sized paper. However, this printer has a
special “Manual Feed” mode using Tray 1 (upper tray) to accommodate
non-standard paper sizes. You can select this mode with the printer driver
or the control panel.
See “PAPER” in Chapter 4 for more information on selecting this setting
using the printer Control Panel.
1.
When the manual feed command is selected, the printer waits until you
load the paper in Tray 1.
MANUAL FEED
=on
2.
Pull out Tray 1 and load the paper you are going to use. If the size of
paper you wish to print on is different to the size of paper in the paper
tray it will be necessary to remove the paper stack first.
3.
Re-install Tray 1 and press Go. The printer then starts printing.
Note
Print quality may be affected by the type of paper you use and the print
image.

Question
The printer does not
load paper.
How can I load
envelopes?
Which paper can I
use?
How can I clear paper
jams?
The printer feeds more
than one sheet at a
time.
Paper skews while
feeding.
Sometimes mis-picking
of paper from the
paper tray or misfeeding of paper from
the paper exit occurs.
Recommendation
• Check to see if the Alarm LED is on. If so, the
Paper Cassette may be out of paper or not properly
installed. If it is empty, load a new stack of paper
into the Paper Cassette.
• If there is paper in the Paper Cassette, make sure
that it is straight. If the paper is curled, you should
straighten it before printing. Sometimes it is helpful
to remove the paper, turn the stack over, and then
reload it in the paper tray.
• Reduce the stack of paper in the Paper Cassette,
and then try again.
You can load envelopes from the Paper Cassette
(Tray 1). Make sure you adjust the paper guide. Your
application software also must be set up correctly to
print on the envelope size you are using. This is
usually done in the page setup or document setup
menu of your software. Refer to your applications
manual for more information.
See ‘Paper Handling’ in Chapter 3 for detailed paper
specifications.
See the “Paper Jams” section in this chapter.
Check to verify the following:
• The paper loaded is all the same type.
• Paper that meets the specifications is loaded.
• Paper stack was fanned before loading.
• The stack of paper is not too high.
• The side guide is not set too tight.
Check to verify the following:
• The side guide is adjusted correctly.
• The amount of paper you loaded is correct. Refer
to the ‘PAPER SPECIFICATIONS’ section in
APPENDIX.
Clean the Paper Guide, the Registration Roller and the
Exit Roller referring to ‘Periodical Printer Cleaning’ in
Chapter 5.

Question
The printer prints

characters.
The computer hangs
up when the printer
starts printing, or an
application error
occurs.
The headers or footers
appear when I view my
document on the
screen but do not show

Printing takes too long.
Recommendation
• Cancel the print job from your computer. Then, turn
the printer off and on, or reset the printer and try
your print job again.
• Make sure your application software is correctly set
up to use this printer. Check the printer driver
settings or printer settings in your application
software.
Check to see that the system resources are enough
(PC memory, etc). When you have many applications
open, the system resources of your PC will not be
enough and will cause your PC to hang up. Close
applications you are not using and try again.
Most laser printers have a restricted area that cannot
be printed. Adjust the top and bottom margins in your
document to allow for this.

to complete printing.
When you print in Super Fine mode, the printer will
take a relatively long time to finish printing.
When the Data LED is blinking, the printer is
getting ready to print. Print speed depends on
memory size or performance of your PC and
memory size of the printer.
The printer may be set to monochrome mode.

Test printing on paper, especially envelopes, is recommended before
making a large purchase.
The following types of envelopes are not recommended for use:
• Envelopes with thick and/or crooked edges
• Damaged, curled, wrinkled, or irregularly shaped envelopes
• Extremely shiny or highly textured envelopes
• Envelopes with clasps
• Envelopes of baggy construction
• Envelopes not sharply creased
• Embossed envelopes
• Envelopes already printed with a laser printer
• Envelopes that cannot be arranged uniformly when placed in a pile
Note
• An area 15mm (0.6”) from the edges of the envelope will not be printed.
• Avoid feeding labels with the carrier sheet exposed because your printer
will be damaged.
• When feeding Transparencies, the use of a recommended type for laser
printers will ensure optimum printing. For detailed information on the
specification or purchase, please contact your nearest Brother
authorized sales representative or the place of purchase.

APPENDIX
PAAPPEERR
The printer 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 large quantities to ensure that it provides the desired
performance. Some important guidelines when selecting paper are:
1.
The Supplier should be informed that the paper or envelopes will be
used in a laser printer.
2.
Preprinted paper must use inks that can withstand the temperature of
the printer’s fusing process. (200 degrees centigrade)
3.
If you have selected a cotton bond paper, paper having a rough
surface such as cockle or laid finished paper, or paper that is wrinkled
or puckered, be aware that these types of paper may exhibit degraded
performance.
Note
The manufacturer does not warrant the use of any particular paper. The
operator is responsible for the quality of paper used with the printer.
Paper Types to Avoid
Some types of paper might not perform well or may cause damage to your
printer.
Types of paper to avoid are:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Highly textured paper
Smooth or shiny paper
Paper that is coated or has a chemical finish
Damaged, wrinkled or pre-folded paper
Paper exceeding the recommend weight specification specified in the
manual
Paper with tabs and staples
Letterheads using low temperature dyes or thermography
Multi-part or carbonless paper
DAMAGE OR OTHER DEFECTS CAUSED BY THE USE OF PAPER
LISTED UNDER “PAPER TYPES TO AVOID” WILL NOT BE COVERED
UNDER ANY WARRANTY OR SERVICE AGREEMENTS.

Most envelopes will perform acceptably on your printer. However, some
envelopes will have feeding 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 thickness of paper along
the leading edge. The envelope should lie flat and not be of baggy or flimsy
construction. Purchase quality envelopes 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.
Envelope Types to Avoid
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Envelopes constructed with paper that exceeds the paper weight
specifications for the printer
Poorly manufactured envelopes with edges that are not straight or
consistently square
Envelopes of “baggy” construction or with folds that are not sharply
creased
Envelopes with transparent windows, holes, cutouts or perforations
Envelopes with clasps, snaps or tie strings
Envelopes made with smooth or shiny paper
Envelopes that are rough, highly textured, or deeply embossed
Envelopes that do not lie flat or that are curled, wrinkled, or irregularly
shaped
Envelopes having an open flap with an adhesive that seals the
envelope
USE OF ANY OF THE ENVELOPES LISTED ABOVE MAY CAUSE
DAMAGE TO YOUR PRINTER. SUCH DAMAGE IS NOT COVERED
UNDER ANY WARRANTY OR SERVICE AGREEMENT.
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.

APPENDIX
LAABBEELLSS AANNDD OVVEERRHHEEAADDTRRAANNSSPPAARREENNCCIIEESS
The printer will print on most types of labels and transparencies designed
for use with a laser printer. Labels should have an adhesive that is acrylicbased since such material is more stable at the high temperatures of the
fusing unit. Adhesives should not touch any part of the printer because the
label stock may stick to the drum or rollers, which would cause jams and
print quality problems. No adhesive should be exposed between the labels.
Labels should be arranged so that they cover the entire page with the only
exposed spaces being lengthwise down the sheet. Using labels with
spaces may result in labels peeling off and causing serious jam or print
problems.
All labels and transparencies used in this printer must be able to withstand
a temperature of 200 degrees centigrade (392 degrees Fahrenheit) for a
period of 0.1 seconds.
Label and transparency sheets should not exceed the paper-weight
specifications described in the User’s Guide. Labels and transparencies
exceeding this specification may not feed or print properly and can cause
damage to your printer.
The entire responsibility for the quality and performance of labels and
transparencies lies with the customer.
DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE USE OF UNSATISFACTORY LABELS OR
TRANSPARENCIES IS NOT COVERED UNDER ANY WARRANTY OR
SERVICE AGREEMENTS.
