1
Print quality may vary according to the type of paper you are using.
You can use the following types of print media: plain paper, thin paper, thick paper, bond paper or recycled
paper.
For best results, follow the instructions below:
 DO NOT put different types of paper in the paper tray at the same time because it may cause paper jams
or misfeeds.
 For proper printing, you must choose the same paper size from your software application as the paper in
the tray.
 Avoid touching the printed surface of the paper immediately after printing.
 Before you buy a lot of paper, test a small quantity to make sure that the paper is suitable.

Printing Methods
Handling and using special paper
1
1
The machine is designed to work well with 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 to
ensure desirable performance. Store paper in its original packaging and keep it sealed. Keep the paper flat
and away from moisture, direct sunlight and heat.
Some important guidelines when selecting paper are:
 If you use bond paper, paper with a rough surface or paper that is wrinkled or creased, the paper may
exhibit degraded performance.
Types of paper to avoid
1
Important
Some types of paper may not perform well or may cause damage to your machine.
DO NOT use paper:
• that is highly textured
• that is extremely smooth or shiny
• that is curled or warped
1
1
1 A curl of 0.08 in. (2 mm) or greater may cause jams to occur.
• that is coated or has a chemical finish. When using coated paper, such as glossy paper, the paper may
become dirty because the ink does not dry.
• that is damaged, creased or folded
• that exceeds the recommended weight specification in this guide
• with tabs and staples
• that is multipart or carbonless
If you use any of the types of paper listed above, they may damage your machine. This damage is not
covered under any Brother warranty or service agreement.

When print data is sent to the machine, the tray ID can be selected using Paper Source in the printer driver.
When the tray ID is set on the machine, the machine is able to find the tray using the tray ID and print from
the tray even if the tray is moved to another tray position.
To set the tray ID, move the tab up or down to the desired tray ID position as shown in the illustration.
For details about selecting tray ID in the printer driver, see Paper Source uu page 32 (for Windows ® printer
driver), Printing Preferences uu page 46 (for Windows® BR-Script3 printer driver), and Print Settings
uu page 62 (for Macintosh printer drivers).
Separator tray setting (if the lower trays are installed)
1
If you select a paper tray using the Separator Tray option, you can insert a sheet of paper from the
specified tray between each print job. For example, if you select a tray that is loaded with colored paper, you
can easily find the beginning and end of each print job. (See Paper Tray uu page 79.)

Storage data

Storage Print allows you to save print jobs to the machine and print them later. The machine will not print the
document when you send it for printing. To print the document, you must use the control panel of the machine.
When the area to spool data is full, the LCD shows Storage Full. Press Cancel or Go to return to Ready
mode.
If you want to delete the spooled data, you can carry out this operation using the control panel.
Note
• For more information about the settings in the printer driver and how to store the print job in the machine,
see Storage Print tab uu page 39 (for Windows ® printer driver), Printing Preferences uu page 46 (for
Windows® BR-Script3 printer driver), Storage Print uu page 60 (for Macintosh printer driver) or Secure
Print uu page 68 (for Macintosh BR-Script3 printer driver).
• If the optional card reader is connected to the machine, you can use card authentication to print storage
data. Because you can use your cards to access only your personal storage data, card authentication is
effective at preventing unauthorized access to your storage data.
For details about the card reader and card authentication, please refer to the
Card Reader Operation Guide located on the Manuals page for your model on the Brother Solutions
Center web site at http://solutions.brother.com/.

• Only administrators can set limitations and make changes for each user.
Card authentication
3
If the optional card reader is connected to the machine, you can use card authentication to print storage data.
Because the user’s identity is confirmed simply by touching the card to the card reader, the user can access
their storage data directly. In addition, because others cannot access the storage data, card authentication is
effective at preventing unauthorized access to the personal storage data.

The replacement ink cartridge can print approximately 30,000 pages 1. Actual page count will vary depending

Estimated Cartridge Yield is declared in accordance with ISO/IEC 24711 test in continuous printing methodology, using monochrome test page
defined in ISO/IEC 19752.
Note
• It is a good idea to keep a new ink cartridge ready for use when you see the Ink Low warning.
5
• To ensure high quality printing, we recommend that you use only Genuine Brother Brand ink cartridges.
• If you print graphics, bold text, charts, Web pages with borders, or other types of printouts that consist of
more than simple text, the amount of ink used will increase.
• If you change the print density setting for lighter or darker printing, the amount of ink used will change.
• Wait to unpack the ink cartridge until immediately before you put it into the machine.
Ink Low
5
If the LCD shows Ink Low, the machine has nearly run out of ink. Buy a new ink cartridge and have it ready
before you get a Insufficient Ink message.
Replace Ink
5
When the LCD shows Insufficient Ink, you need to replace the ink cartridge.
The machine will not print until you replace the ink cartridge.
A new or unused genuine Brother ink cartridge will reset the Replace Ink mode.
Even though the machine tells you to replace an ink cartridge, there will be a small amount of ink left in the
ink cartridge. The printer’s ink cartridge uses both Black ink and Pre-coat to ensure print quality. Therefore if
either the Black ink or the Pre-coat runs out, the cartridge can no longer be used and the printer cannot print,
even if there is some of the other ink remaining in the cartridge.
CAUTION
If ink gets in your eyes, wash it out with water at once and call a doctor if you are concerned.
98
Routine Maintenance
Important
• DO NOT take out the ink cartridge if you do not need to replace it. If you do so, the ink quantity may be
reduced due to the maintenance to maintain good print quality.
• DO NOT touch the inside of the opening in the machine for the ink cartridge. If you do so, the ink may stain
your skin.
• If ink gets on your skin or clothing immediately wash it off with soap or detergent.
• 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.

Unpack the new ink cartridge.
Important
• Wait to unpack the new ink cartridge until immediately before you put it in the machine. If an ink cartridge
is left unpacked for a long time, the ink life will be shortened.
• Brother strongly recommends that you DO NOT refill the ink cartridge provided with your machine. We also
strongly recommend that you continue to use only Genuine Brother Brand replacement ink cartridges. Use
or attempted use of third party ink and/or cartridges in the Brother machine may cause damage to the
machine and/or may result in unsatisfactory print quality. In addition, use of third party ink and/or cartridges
may trigger incorrect status messages, cause the printer to stop prematurely or otherwise malfunction. Our
limited warranty coverage does not apply to any problem that is caused by the use of third party ink and/or
cartridges. To protect your investment and obtain premium performance from the Brother machine, we
strongly recommend the use of Genuine Brother Supplies.

Cleaning the print head
5
To maintain good print quality, the machine will automatically clean the print head when needed. You can
start the cleaning process manually if there is a print quality problem.
Clean the print head if you get a vertical line in the text or graphics, or blank text on your printed pages.
Cleaning the print head consumes ink. Cleaning too often uses ink unnecessarily.
107
Routine Maintenance
Important
DO NOT touch the print head. Touching the print head may cause permanent damage and may void the
print head’s warranty.
Note
If the machine is left unplugged for a long period of time, it will automatically start cleaning when you plug
the machine back in. This cleaning process will reduce the rated life of the ink cartridge in the machine.

The machine will not turn on.
Adverse conditions on the power connection (such as lightning or a power surge)
may have triggered the machine’s internal safety mechanisms. Turn the machine off
and unplug the power cord. Then plug in the power cord.
If you still cannot turn on the machine, plug the power cord directly into a different
known working wall outlet (do not plug it into a surge suppressor or backup battery
type of device). If this works, then the wall outlet, battery backup device, or surge
suppressor device is the cause of the problem.

Important information for choosing your paper
A
The information in this section will help you choose paper to use with this machine.
Note
If you use paper that is not recommended, a paper jam or misfeed may occur in the machine.
Before you buy a large quantity of paper
A
Make sure that the paper is suitable for the machine.
Paper for plain paper copies
A
Paper is divided by usage, such as paper for printing and paper for copying. The usage is usually written on
the paper’s package. Check the package to see whether it is suitable for inkjet printers. Use paper that is
suitable for inkjet printers.
Basis weight
A
The basis weight of the paper in general use varies in different countries. We recommend that you use paper
that weighs 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 g/m2), although this machine is able to cope with thinner or thicker paper
than these weights.
Long grain and short grain
A
The pulp fiber of the paper is aligned during paper manufacturing. And paper can be classified into two types,
long grain and short grain.
Long grain paper fibers run in the same direction as the long edge of the paper. Short grain paper fibers run
perpendicular to the long edge of the paper. Though most plain paper for copying is long grain, some is short
grain. We recommend that you use long grain paper for this machine. Short grain paper is too weak for the
paper transport of the machine.
Print surface
A
The characteristics of the face side and reverse side of a sheet of paper may vary a little.
Usually, the opening side of the paper ream package is the print side. Follow the instructions on the paper
package. Typically, the print side is indicated by an arrow.
