Acceptable paper and
other media
The print quality can be affected by the type
of paper you are using in the machine.
To get the best print quality for the settings
you have chosen, always set the Paper Type
to match the type of paper you load.
You can use plain paper, inkjet paper (coated
paper), glossy paper, transparencies and
envelopes.
Recommended media
2
To get the best print quality, we suggest using
Brother paper. (See table below.)
If Brother paper is not available in your
country, we recommend testing various
papers before purchasing large quantities.
We recommend using ‘3M Transparency
Film’ when you print on transparencies.

„ When you print on inkjet paper (coated
paper), transparencies and photo paper,
be sure to choose the correct media in the
‘Basic’ tab of the printer driver or in the
Paper Type setting of the menu. (See
Paper Type on page 18.)
„ When you print on Brother photo paper,
load the instruction sheet included with the
photo paper in the paper tray first, and
then put the photo paper on the instruction
sheet.
„ When you use transparencies or photo
paper, remove each sheet at once to
prevent smudging or paper jams.
„ Avoid touching the printed surface of the
paper immediately after printing; the
surface may not be completely dry and
may stain your fingers.

Loading documents and paper
Handling and using media
2
„ Store paper in its original packaging, and
keep it sealed. Keep the paper flat and away
from moisture, direct sunlight and heat.
„ The coated side of photo paper is shiny.
Avoid touching the shiny (coated) side.
Load photo paper with the shiny side
facing down.
Paper capacity of the output paper
tray
2
Up to 50 sheets of 80 gsm A4 or 20 lb Letter
paper.
„ Transparencies or photo paper must be
picked up from the output paper tray one
page at a time to avoid smudging.
„ Avoid touching either side of
transparencies because they absorb
water and perspiration easily, and this
may cause decreased output quality.
Transparencies designed for laser
printers/copiers may stain your next
document. Use only transparencies
recommended for inkjet printing.
Improper Setup
DO NOT use the following kinds of paper:
• Damaged, curled, wrinkled, or
irregularly shaped paper
1

2 mm or longer
• Extremely shiny or highly textured paper

Telephone Service for
Australia
Telstra® FaxStream® Duet®
(Distinctive Ring)
Telstra® FaxStream ® Duet® is an enhanced
Public Switched Telephone Service (PSTS)
offered by Telstra® that allows you to have an
additional number on one phone line, with its
own distinctive ring pattern. Telstra®
FaxStream® Duet® is a call handling feature
that helps users distinguish voice and
facsimile calls. With FaxStream® Duet®,
incoming calls to a fax number are
announced by a different, distinctive ring
signal. Only one call can be answered (or
made) at any one time and while this call is in
progress, incoming calls to either number will
be presented with a busy tone.
Your machine has a Distinctive Ring function,
allowing you to dedicate one phone number
just for receiving faxes.
Note
After you have set the Distinctive Ring
feature to On, the receive mode is set to
Manual automatically. If you don’t have a
TAD or Voice Mail set up on the Distinctive
Ring number, Manual mode means you
must answer all the voice calls yourself.
You can not change the receive mode
from Manual mode while the Distinctive
Ring is set to on.
36
What is the Advantage of using
Telstra® FaxStream® Duet® Function?
7
7
Using Telstra® FaxStream® Duet® is the
most efficient way to receive both fax and
telephone calls on the same line. When the
voice call comes in, all phones (extension
and external) and the fax machine will ring to
alert you to pick it up. If a fax call comes in,
the fax machine will answer automatically
without ringing, whereas the extension and
external phones will ring twice with a
distinctive ring pattern. It is also a more
efficient way of operating a Fax machine with
an extension phone as you do not have to use
the remote activation codes. It gives you two
independent numbers without the higher cost
of a second line.
7
Telephone and External devices
How does Telstra® FaxStream® Duet®
Work?
Incoming calls to the voice number, will have
the standard ring pattern of long, long tone,
followed by a pause, repeated, while the new
fax number will have a different ring pattern of
three short bursts of ring, repeated at regular
intervals.
When FaxStream® Duet® is On and you
receive a voice call all extension and external
phones will ring with a standard ring pattern.
The fax machine will ring on the third ring with
a standard ring pattern. All external and the
extension phones will continue to ring, until
you or a telephone answering device can
answer the voice number.
®
®
When FaxStream Duet is On and you
receive a fax call on the Duet® number the
Fax machine will answer and automatically
receive the fax message without ringing. On
the other hand, all extension and external
phones will ring twice with a distinctive ring
pattern. Do not answer the phone as you are
receiving a fax message.

Caller ID
7
Caller ID is a telephone service that allows
the subscriber to see a display of the caller’s
phone number or name as the telephone
rings. It is a fast way to screen your calls. You
can respond quickly to calls you missed,
because Caller IDs are received and stored in
your machine memory.

• If ID Withheld appears on the display, it

Depends on network function.
The Caller ID is Stored in Your
Machine Memory
The machine can store a maximum of the last
30 incoming caller IDs in the memory, along
with the time and date of reception. The 31st
call will cause the oldest ID to be erased.
The Caller ID information stored in the
memory can be used for the following.
„ Printing the Caller ID List.
You can review calls you received by
checking the Caller IDs in memory. This
report will list the Date, Time, Phone
Number (Caller ID) name, and type of Call
(Comment) if available.

• If ID Unknown appears on the display, it
means that the call came from outside
your caller ID service area or a public
phone. 1
For Business
All businesses profit from a quicker response
to customer calls. Businesses that provide
mail order services, money-lending services
or provide confidential information, can
protect themselves from false orders or
acceptance of false identification.
7
As your telephone rings, the display shows
you the caller’s phone number or name if the
name has stored in the One-Touch and
Speed-Dial. Once you press Hook and
answer the call, the caller’s ID disappears.
You will see up to the first 16 characters of the

Using FaxAbility is the most efficient way to

have to press an activation code. And the
people who call to talk on your main number
will not have to talk to your fax machine.
Basically, it gives you two independent

Chapter 7
How Does FaxAbility Work?
Your telephone number will have the standard
ring pattern of long, long tone, while the new
number will have a ring pattern of long, silence,
long, etc. When FaxAbility is On, you will not
hear the first ring of all incoming calls on the fax
machine. Extension phones will ring as usual. If
the fax machine recognizes the ring pattern, all
ringing will stop and the fax machine will answer
and automatically receive the fax message.
Otherwise, you will hear the extension phones
and the fax machine continue to ring. The fax
machine always listens to the ring pattern
before it answers, so do not pick up the phone
during that time. You will quickly learn to
recognize the ring pattern for faxes, so you will
not be tempted to answer that number. Either
you or a telephone answering device can
answer the main number(s).

Connecting an external
TAD (telephone
answering device)
You may choose to connect an external
answering device. However, when you have
an external TAD on the same telephone line
as the machine, the TAD answers all calls
and the machine ‘listens’ for fax calling (CNG)
tones. If it hears them, the machine takes
over the call and receives the fax. If it does
not hear CNG tones, the machine lets the
TAD continue playing your outgoing message
so your caller can leave you a voice
message.
The TAD must answer within two rings (the
recommended setting is two rings). The
machine cannot hear CNG tones until the
TAD has answered the call, and with four
rings there are only 8 to 10 seconds of CNG
tones left for the fax ‘handshake’. Make sure
you carefully follow the instructions in this
guide for recording your outgoing message.
We do not recommend using the toll saver
feature on your external answering machine if
it exceeds five rings.
Note
If you do not receive all your faxes, cut the
Ring Delay setting on your external TAD.
1
Improper Setup
DO NOT connect a TAD elsewhere on the same
telephone line.
7
Connections
The external TAD must be connected as
shown in the previous illustration.

Recording an outgoing
message (OGM) on an
external TAD
Timing is important in recording this
message. The message sets up the ways to
handle both manual and automatic fax
reception.
a
Record 5 seconds of silence at the
beginning of your message. (This allows
your machine time to listen for the fax
CNG tones of automatic transmissions
before they stop.)
b
Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.

Note
We recommend beginning your OGM with
an initial 5-second silence because the
machine cannot hear fax tones over a
resonant or loud voice. You may try
omitting this pause, but if your machine
has trouble receiving, then you must
re-record the OGM to include it.

You can connect a separate telephone as

Brother recommends that all our machines be
connected to a discreet (dedicated) line.
Although a particular PABX may appear to
work with a particular model of fax machine,
we cannot guarantee that the unit will operate
correctly.

7
While it is often relatively simple to connect a
fax machine to a PABX, (Private Automatic
Branch Exchange), we suggest that you
contact the company that installed your
telephone system and ask them to connect
the fax machine for you.
Brother does not recommend the use of a
PABX line. PABX limitations in general can
cause some functions of the fax machine not
to work correctly.

‘555-7000 ’ if you press the following keys:
Speed Dial, OK, #03, Speed Dial, #02, and
Start.
Numbers can be added manually by entering
them on the dial pad:
Speed Dial, OK, #03, 7, 0, 0, 1 (on the dial

copies image data. If you need to modify
the image data stored on a memory card
with your PC, we recommend that you do
not modify the folder structure created by
the digital camera. When saving new or

Troubleshooting and Routine Maintenance
Sending Faxes (continued)
Difficulty
Suggestions
Transmission Verification Report
says ‘Result:NG’ or
‘Result:ERROR’.
There is probably temporary noise or static on the line. Try sending the fax again.
If you send a PC FAX message and get ‘Result:ERROR’ on the Transmission
Verification Report, your machine may be out of memory. If the problem continues,
ask the telephone company to check your telephone line.
If you often get transmission errors due to possible interference on the telephone
line, try changing the menu setting of Compatibility to Basic. (See Telephone line
interference on page 103.)
Poor fax send quality.
Try changing your resolution to Fine or S.Fine. Make a copy to check your
machine's scanner operation. If the copy quality is not good, clean the scanner.
(See Cleaning the scanner on page 106.)
Vertical black lines when sending.
If the copy you made shows the same problem, clean the scanner. (See Cleaning
the scanner on page 106.)
(MFC-260C only)
Handling Incoming Calls
Difficulty
Suggestions
The machine ‘Hears’ a voice as a
CNG Tone.
If Fax Detect is set to on, your machine is more sensitive to sounds. It may
mistakenly interpret certain voices or music on the line as a fax machine calling
and respond with fax receiving tones. Deactivate the machine by pressing
Stop/Exit. Try avoiding this problem by turning Fax Detect to off. (See Fax
Detect on page 33. )
Sending a Fax Call to the machine.
If you answered at the machine, press Mono Start and hang up at once. If you
answered on an external or extension telephone, press your Remote Activation
Code (default setting is l 5 1 (l 9 1 for New Zealand)). When your machine
answers, hang up.
Custom features on a single line.
If you have Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, an alarm system or any other
custom feature on a single telephone line with your machine, it may create a
problem sending or receiving faxes.
For example: If you subscribe to Call Waiting or some other custom service and
its signal comes through the line while your machine is sending or receiving a fax,
the signal can temporarily interrupt or disrupt the faxes. Brother's ECM feature
should help overcome this problem. This condition is related to the telephone
system industry and is common to all devices that send and receive information
on a single, shared line with custom features. If avoiding a slight interruption is
crucial to your business, a separate telephone line with no custom features is
recommended.
Menu Setting Difficulties

Copying Difficulties
Difficulty
Cannot make a copy
Suggestions
Make sure that the Copy
key is illuminated. (See Entering Copy
mode on page 54.)
Vertical streaks appear on copies.
If you see vertical streaks on copies, clean the scanner. (See Cleaning the
scanner on page 106.)
Poor copy results when using the
ADF (MFC-260C only)
Try using the scanner glass. (See Using the scanner glass on page 7.)
Vertical black line appears in
copies (MFC-260C only)
Black vertical lines on copies are typically caused by dirt or correction fluid on the
glass strip. Clean the glass strip. (See Cleaning the scanner on page 106.)
Scanning Difficulties
Difficulty

Replacing the ink cartridges
B
Your machine is equipped with an ink dot
counter. The ink dot counter automatically
monitors the level of ink in each of the 4
cartridges. When the machine detects an ink
cartridge is running out of ink, the machine
will tell you with a message on the LCD.
Note
For example, when one of the ink
cartridge is nearly empty, the LCD will
disply Near Empty (name of colour).
You should purchase a replacement
cartridge in preparation for when the
machine indicates the colour is completely
empty.
When one of the ink cartridge is empty,
the LCD will display Ink Empty (name of
colour).
You should only replace the actual ink
cartridge when this message Ink Empty
appears on the LCD.
The LCD will tell you which ink cartridge is low
or needs replacing. Be sure to follow the LCD
prompts to replace the ink cartridges in the
correct order.
Even though the machine tells you that an ink
cartridge is empty, there will be a small
amount of ink left in the ink cartridge. It is
necessary to keep some ink in the ink
cartridge to prevent air from drying out and
damaging the print head assembly.
a
Open the ink cartridge cover.
If one or more ink cartridges are empty,
for example Black, the LCD shows
Ink Empty Black and
Replace Ink.

Troubleshooting and Routine Maintenance
g
The machine will automatically reset the
ink dot counter.
Note
• If you replaced an ink cartridge, for
example Black, before the LCD shows
Near Empty Black or
Ink Empty Black, the LCD will ask you
to verify that it was a brand new one
(Did You Change Blck?). For each
new cartridge you installed, press 1 (Yes)
to automatically reset the ink dot counter
for that colour. If the ink cartridge you
installed is not a brand new one, be sure
to press 2 (No).
• If the LCD shows No Cartridge after
you install the ink cartridge, check that the
ink cartridges are installed properly.
WARNING
If ink gets in your eyes, wash them out with
water at once and call a doctor if you are
concerned.
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.
Brother multifunction machines are designed
to work with ink of a particular specification
and will work to a level of optimum
performance when used with genuine
Brother Branded ink cartridges. Brother
cannot guarantee this optimum performance
if ink or ink cartridges of other specifications
are used. Brother does not therefore
recommend the use of cartridges other than
genuine Brother Branded cartridges or the
refilling of empty cartridges with ink from
other sources. If damage is caused to the
print head or other parts of this machine as a
result of using incompatible products with
this machine, any repairs required as a result
may not be covered by the warranty.
CAUTION
DO NOT take out ink cartridges if you do
not need to replace them. If you do so, it
may reduce the ink quantity and the
machine will not know the quantity of ink left
in the cartridge.
DO NOT touch the cartridge insertion slots.
If you do so, the ink may stain your skin.
If ink stains your skin or clothing, wash with
soap or detergent at once.
If you mix the colours by installing an ink
cartridge in the wrong position, clean the
print head several times after correcting the
cartridge installation.
Cleaning the outside of the
machine
B
CAUTION
Use neutral detergents. Cleaning with
volatile liquids such as thinner or benzine will
damage the outside surface of the machine.
DO NOT use cleaning materials that
contain ammonia.

Consumable items
Ink
The machine uses individual Black, Yellow, Cyan and Magenta ink
cartridges that are separate from the print head assembly.
Service Life of Ink
Cartridge
Replacement Ink Cartridges
The first time you install the ink cartridges the machine will use extra
ink to fill the ink delivery tubes. This is a one-time process that
enables high quality printing. Afterward, replacement ink cartridges
will print the specified number of pages.
Black - Approximately 350 pages at 5% coverage
Yellow, Cyan and Magenta - Approximately 300 pages at 5% coverage
„ The above figures assume continuous printing at a resolution of
600 x 600 dpi in normal mode after installing a new ink cartridge.
„ The number of pages a cartridge will print may change
depending on how often you use the machine and how many
pages you print with each use.
„ The machine will automatically and periodically clean the print
head assembly, a process that uses a small amount of ink.
„ When the machine identifies a cartridge as empty there may be
a small amount of ink left in it. This is necessary to prevent air
from drying out and damaging the print head assembly.
