1-4
CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCCTION
❏ Machine Status Monitor with Bi-directional Parallel Interface
The printer driver can monitor your machines status using bidirectional parallel communications. A high quality bi-directional
parallel printer cable is recommended.
The machine status monitor program can show the current status of
your machine. When printing, the animated dialog box appears on
your computer screen to show the current printing process. If an error
occurs, a dialog box will appear to let you know what to correct. For
example: when your machine is out of paper, the dialog box will
display “No Paper” and instructions for the proper corrective action.
❏ Enhanced Memory Management
The machine provides its own data compression technology in the
machine hardware and the supplied printer driver software, which can
automatically compress graphic data and font data efficiently into the
machine’s memory. You can avoid memory errors and print most full
page 600 dpi graphic and text data, including larger fonts, with the
machine’s standard memory.
❏ Environment-Friendly
Economy Printing Mode
This feature will cut your printing cost by saving toner. It is useful to
obtain draft copies for proof-reading. You can select from two
economy modes—25% toner saving and 50% toner saving—through
the Windows printer driver supplied with your machine.
Sleep Mode (Power Save Mode)
When the machine is not used for a certain amount of time, sleep
mode automatically reduces power consumption. The machine
consumes less than 13 W when in sleep mode.
Low Running Cost
Since the toner cartridge is separate from the drum unit, you need to
replace only the toner cartridge after approximately 2,400 pages,
which is cost effective and ecologically friendly. (Some models are
supplied with a starter toner cartridge which must be replaced
after 1,000 pages.)
The actual number of pages printed with each toner cartridge may
vary depending on your average type of print job.

When the machine does not receive data for a certain period of time
(time-out), it enters sleep mode. Sleep mode acts as though the machine
was turned off. The default time-out is 5 minutes. While the machine is in
sleep mode, all the lamps are off and it is as if it was turned off, but the
machine can still receive data from the computer. Receiving a print file or
document automatically wakes up the machine to start printing. Pressing
the switch also wakes up the machine.
✒ Note
When the machine goes into sleep mode, the fan will not stop until the
machine engine has cooled down.
Sleep mode allows the print engine to cool, so the temperature of your
room and how long the machine has been in sleep mode affects the
warm-up time. This warm-up time can take up to 30 seconds. The
Ready lamp blinks to indicate that the machine is warming up.
You can change the time out for the sleep mode with the supplied
printer driver or Remote Printer Console program. Refer to the Help
section in the printer driver or RPC program for more information
about the sleep mode setting.

REPLACING THE TONER CARTRIDGE
The machine can print approximately 2,400 pages (5% coverage:
A4/Letter) with one toner cartridge. When the toner cartridge is running
low, the Alarm and Data (Toner) lamps blink once every 5 seconds to
indicate toner low. Initially, some models are supplied with a starter
toner cartridge which must be replaced after 1,000 pages.
✒ Note
Actual page count will vary depending on your average document
type. (i.e.: standard letter, detailed graphics, etc.)
It is recommended that you always keep a new toner cartridge ready
for use for when you get the toner low warning.
Discard the used toner cartridge according to local regulations. If you
are not sure of them, consult your local dealer. Be sure to seal up the
toner cartridge tightly so that toner powder does not spill out of the
cartridge. Do not discard used toner cartridges together with domestic
rubbish.
It is recommended that you clean the machine when you replace the
toner cartridge. See “CLEANING THE MACHINE” in this chapter.

REPLACING THE DRUM UNIT
The machine uses a drum unit to create the print images on paper. If the
Drum lamp is on, it indicates the drum unit is nearly at the end of its life.
We recommend you prepare a new drum unit to replace the current one.
Even if the Drum lamp is on, you may be able to continue to print
without replacing the drum unit for a while. If there is a noticeable
deterioration in the output print quality even before the Drum lamp
lights, then the drum unit should be replaced.

Caution
When removing the drum unit, handle it carefully as it contains toner.
You should clean the machine when you replace the drum unit. See
“CLEANING THE MACHINE” in this chapter.
✒ Note
The drum unit is a consumable, and it is necessary to replace it
periodically.
There are many factors that determine the actual drum life, such as
temperature, humidity, type of paper and toner that you use, the number
of pages per print job, etc.. The drum life is estimated at approximately
20,000 pages at 20 pages per job and 8,000 pages at 1 page per job. The
actual number of pages that your drum will print may be significantly less
than these estimates. 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 and use the product
in a clean, dust-free environment with adequate ventilation.

CHAPTER 7 TROUBLESHOOTING
Setting Up the Machine for DOS
Question
I cannot print from my
application software.
The machine prints, but it
prints incorrect information.
Sometimes it prints a couple of
characters and then ejects the
page, etc.
The machine does not print
when I press the Print Screen
Key.
(Data lamp On)
The machine prints the first
part of my document but does
not print the last page.
(Data lamp On)
How can I change the User
settings or default settings of
the machine?
Recommendation
Check if the DOS application software interface
settings match that of your machine: for example,
if you are using a parallel printer cable, you would
most likely set your DOS software printer port to
LPT1.
Check if the machine has any alarms active.
Check if the appropriate printer is selected in your
application software.
This is an indication that your application machine
emulation setting and the machines emulation do not
match. Check in your application software which
printer you have selected to make sure the machine is
set up correctly. Remember the machine emulates
three widely used printer selections: HP LaserJet IIP,
Epson FX-850, and IBM Proprinter XL. Try setting
the printer into HP emulation and then select the HP
LaserJet IIP printer in your application software.
Press the panel switch. The data has been sent to the
machine but the machine did not receive the Page
Eject command: print screens do not send this
command.
This was a common problem with database software
and spreadsheet software when not correctly set up.
The data has been sent to the machine but the
machine did not receive the Page Eject command.
Press the panel switch to eject the page. Then check
with your software supplier on how to add a Page
Eject (or Form Feed) command to the end of your
print job.
Use the remote printer console (RPC) program.

Paper Handling
Question
The machine does not load
paper.
How can I load envelopes?
What paper can I use?
How can I clear paper jams?
7-12
Recommendation
Check to see if the “PAPER EMPTY” message
appears on your computer screen or the Alarm
and Paper lamps are blinking on the machine
control panel. If so, the multi-purpose sheet feeder
may be out of paper or not properly installed. If it
is empty, load a new stack of paper into the
feeder.
If there is paper in the multi-purpose sheet feeder,
make sure 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 put it back into the paper tray.
Reduce the amount of paper in the multi-purpose
sheet feeder, then try again.
You can load envelopes from either the multi-purpose
sheet feeder or the manual feed slot. Your application
software 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 application manual.
You can use plain paper, envelopes, transparencies,
labels, and organizer paper. For information on
loading paper, see “Paper Handling” in Chapter 2.
See “PAPER JAMS” in this chapter.
CHAPTER 7 TROUBLESHOOTING

Question
The machine prints
unexpectedly or it prints
garbage.
The machine cannot print full
pages of a document. An error

message occurs.
The machine cannot print full
pages of a document. A
"MEMORY FULL" error
message occurs.
My headers or footers appear
when I view my document on
screen but do not show up
when I print them.
Recommendation
Turn the machine off and on again to reset the
machine.
Make sure your application software is correctly
set up to use this machine by checking the
machine settings in your application software.
Check the machine emulation settings. If you can use
the supplied RPC program, use it to change the
settings as required. Also, you can print the
current setting list from the RPC program or
Machine Control Panel.
The machine received a very complex print job and
could not process part of the page. This may be
solved by the following ways.
If you are using Windows 95 or Windows 3.1
with the supplied printer driver, see the “Setting
up the Machine for Windows” section.
Try to reduce the complexity of your document or
reduce the print resolution.
Reduce the graphic quality or the number of font
sizes within your application software.
Reduce the print resolution.
Reduce the complexity of your document and try
again.

IMPORTANT - Wiring Information (For U.K. only)
If the power cord supplied with this printer is not suitable for your electrical 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 fuse as the original.
If a moulded plug is severed from the power cord then it should be destroyed because a plug
with cut wires is dangerous if plugged into 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 coloured in accordance with the following code:
Green and yellow:
Blue:
Brown:
Ground
Neutral
Live
The colours of the wiring in the power lead of this printer may not correspond with the
markings which identify 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 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
which is marked with the letter “E” or by the earth symbol or coloured green or 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.
