About fax machines
Fax tones and handshake
When someone is sending a fax, the machine sends fax calling tones
(CNG tones). These are quiet, intermittent beeps every 4-seconds.
You’ll hear them after you dial and press Mono Start or
Colour Start and they will continue for about 60 seconds after
dialling During that time, the sending machine must begin the
“handshake”, or connection, with the receiving machine.
Each time you use automatic procedures to send a fax, you are
sending CNG tones over the phone line. You’ll soon learn to listen for
these quiet beeps each time you answer a phone on your fax line, so
you will know if you are receiving a fax message.
The receiving fax responds with fax receiving tones, which are loud,
chirping sounds. A receiving fax chirps for about 40 seconds over the
phone line, and the LCD shows Receiving.
If your machine is set to the Fax Only mode, it will answer every call
automatically with fax receiving tones. If the other person hangs up,
your machine will continue to send the “chirps” for about 40 seconds,
and the LCD continues to show Receiving. To cancel receiving,
press Stop/Exit.
The fax ‘handshake’ is the time in which the sending machine’s CNG
tones and the receiving machine’s “chirps” overlap. This must be for
at least 2 to 4 seconds, so both machines can understand how each
is sending and receiving the fax. The handshake cannot begin until
the call is answered, and the CNG tones only last for about 60
seconds after the number is dialled. So it is important for the
receiving machine to answer the call in as few rings as possible.
When you have an external Telephone Answering Device (TAD)
on your fax line, your TAD will decide the number of rings before
the call is answered.
Pay special attention to the directions for connecting a TAD in
this chapter. (See Connecting an external telephone answering
device (TAD) on page 1-10.)
INTRODUCTION 1 - 7
ECM (Error Correction Mode)
The Error Correction Mode (ECM) is a way for the machine to check
a fax transmission while it is in progress. If the machine detects
errors during fax transmission, it resends the pages of the fax that
had an error. ECM transmissions are only possible between fax
machines that both have this feature. If they do, you may send and
receive fax messages that are continuously being checked by the
machine.
Your machine must have enough memory for this feature to work.
1 - 8 INTRODUCTION
Connecting the machine
Connecting an external telephone
You can connect a separate telephone (or telephone answering
device) as shown in the diagram below.
Extension

(Example for the U.K.)
When this phone (or TAD) is in use, the LCD shows Telephone.
INTRODUCTION 1 - 9
Connecting an external telephone answering
device (TAD)
Sequence
You may choose to connect an 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 doesn’t 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 four 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.
1 - 10 INTRODUCTION
If you do not receive all your faxes, reduce the Ring Delay
setting on your external TAD.
Unless you are using Distinctive Ring, do not connect a
TAD elsewhere on the same phone line.

Delay setting does not apply.)
2 Record the outgoing message on your external TAD.
3 Set the TAD to answer calls.
4 Set the Receive Mode to External TAD.
(See Choosing the Receive Mode on page 5-1.)
Recording 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.
1 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.)
2 Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
3 End your 20-second message by giving your Fax Receive Code
for people sending manual faxes. For example:
“After the beep, leave a message or send a fax by pressing
51 and Start.”
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.
1 - 12 INTRODUCTION
Using extension telephones (For U.K. only)
It may be that your premises are already wired with parallel extension
telephones, or you intend to add extension telephones to your line,
in addition to your machine. While the simplest arrangement is
straightforward parallel connection, there are some reasons as to
why this arrangement will cause unsatisfactory service, the most
obvious of which is inadvertent interruption of a facsimile
transmission by someone picking up an extension telephone in order
to make an outgoing call. Additionally, fax receive code may not
operate reliably in such a simple configuration.
This machine may also be set to make a delayed transmission (i.e. a
transmission at a pre-set time). This pre-set job may coincide with
someone picking up an extension handset.
Such problems can easily be eliminated however, if you arrange
modification of your extension wiring circuit, such that extension
devices are connected “downstream” of your machine, in a
master/slave configuration (see fig. 2 on next page). In such a
configuration, this machine can always detect whether a telephone
is in use, thus it will not attempt to seize the line during that time. This
is known as “telephone off-hook detection.”
The inadvisable configuration is shown in figure 1 on the next page,
and the recommended master/slave configuration is shown in figure
2.
This new connection configuration can be arranged by contacting
BT, Kingston upon Hull Telecommunications, your PABX maintainer
or a qualified telephone installation company as appropriate. Simply
explained, the extension telephone circuit should be terminated on a
normal modular plug (BT 431A style), which in turn should be
inserted into the modular socket of the white “T”-shaped connector
provided as part of the line cord assembly.

1 - 14 INTRODUCTION
Multi-line connections (PBX)
Most offices use a central telephone system. While it is often
relatively simple to connect the machine to a key system or a PBX
(Private Branch Exchange), we suggest that you contact the
company that installed your telephone system and ask them to
connect the machine for you. It is advisable to have a separate line
for the machine. You can then leave the Receive Mode set to Fax
Only to receive faxes any time of the day or night.
If the machine is to be connected to a multi-line system, ask your
installer to connect the unit to the last line on the system. This
prevents the unit from being activated each time a telephone call is
received.
If you are installing the machine to work with a PBX
1
2
It is not guaranteed that the unit will operate properly under all
circumstances with a PBX. Any cases of difficulty should be
reported first to the company that handles your PBX.
If all incoming calls will be answered by a switchboard operator,
it is recommended that the Receive Mode be set to Manual. All
incoming calls should initially be regarded as telephone calls.
Custom features on your phone line
If you have Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID,
RingMaster, an answering service, an alarm system or other custom
feature on one phone line it may create a problem with the operation
of your machine. (and Custom features on a single line. on page
13-9.)

About paper
The print quality of your document can be affected by the kind of
paper you use in the machine.
To get the best print quality for the settings you’ve 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.
We recommend testing various paper types before purchasing large
quantities.
For best results, use the recommended paper.
When you print on inkjet paper (coated paper), transparencies
and glossy paper, be sure to select the proper media in the
“Basic” tab in the printer driver or in the Paper Type setting in the
menu (Menu/Set, 1, 2).
Also avoid stacking by removing each page after it exits the
machine to avoid smudging.
Handling and using special paper
■ 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 glossy paper is shiny. Avoid touching the
shiny (coated) side. Load glossy paper with the shiny side facing
up toward you.
■ 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.

4 - 1 GETTING STARTED
Setting the Station ID
You should store your name or company name and fax number on
all fax pages that you send.
It is important that you enter the fax number in the internationally
standardised format, i.e. in accordance with the following strict
sequence:
■ The “+” (plus) character (by pressing
key)
■ Your Country Code (e.g. “44” for the United Kingdom, “41” for
Switzerland)
■ Your local area code minus any leading “0” (“9” in Spain)
■ A space
■ Your number on the local exchange, using spaces to aid
readability as appropriate.
As an example, if the machine is installed in the United Kingdom and
the same line is to be used for both fax and voice calls, and your
national telephone number is 0161 444 5555, then you must set the
fax and telephone number parts of your station ID as:
+44 161 444 5555.

PABX and TRANSFER
The machine is initially set to be connected with PSTN (Public
Switched Telephone Network) lines. However, many offices use a
central telephone system or Private Automatic Branch Exchange
(PABX). Your fax can be connected to most types of PABX. The
recall facility on the machine supports timed break recall only (TBR),
PABX normally can work with this for gaining access to an outside
line, or for transferring a call to another extension: The feature works
when the Tel/R key is pressed.
Setting PABX
If the machine is connected to a PABX system, set PBX to On. If not,
set it to Off.

Basic receiving operations
Choosing the Receive Mode
There are four different Receive Modes for your machine. You can
choose the mode that best suits your needs.
LCD
How it works
When to use it
Fax Only
(automatic receive)
The machine
automatically answers
every call as a fax.
For dedicated fax lines.
Fax/Tel*
(fax and telephone)
The machine controls the
line and automatically
answers every call. If the
call is a fax it will receive
the fax. If the call is not a
fax it will ring
(pseudo/double ring) for
you to pick up the call.
Use this mode if you expect to receive lots of fax
messages and few telephone calls. You cannot
have an answering machine on the same line, even
if it is on a separate wall socket/phone socket on
the same line. You cannot use the telephone
company’s Voice Mail in this mode.
External TAD
(with an external
answering machine)
The external answering
machine (TAD)
automatically answers
every call.
Voice messages are
stored on the external
TAD. Fax messages are
printed.
Use this mode if you have connected an answering
machine on your phone line.
The TAD setting works only with an external
answering machine. Ring Delay and F/T Ring Time
do not work in this setting.
Manual
(manual receive)
You control the phone
line and must answer
every call yourself.
Use this mode when you are using a computer
modem on the same line or if you don’t receive
many fax messages or with Distinctive Ring.
If you answer and hear fax tones, wait until the
machine takes over the call, then hang up. (See
Fax Detect on page 5-5.)

If you set the Receive Mode to Fax/Tel, you’ll need to decide how long
the machine will signal you with its special pseudo/double-ring when
you have a voice call. (If it’s a fax call, the machine prints the fax.)
This pseudo/double-ring happens after the initial ringing from the
phone company. Only the machine rings and no other phones on the
same line will ring with the special pseudo/double-ring. However, you
can still answer the call on any extension phone (in a separate wall
socket/phone socket) on the same line as the machine. (See
Operation from extension telephones on page 5-7.)

Fax Detect
When you use this feature, you don’t have to press Mono Start,
Colour Start, or the Fax Receive Code 51 when you answer a
fax call. Selecting On allows the machine to receive fax calls
automatically, even if you lift the handset of an extension or external
phone. When you see Receiving on the LCD or when you hear
‘chirps’ through the handset of an extension phone connected to
another phone socket, just replace the handset and your machine
will do the rest. Selecting Off means you’ll have to activate the
machine yourself by lifting the handset of an external or extension
phone, and then press Mono Start or Colour Start on the
machine—OR—by pressing 51 if you are not at your machine.
(See Operation from extension telephones on page 5-7.)
If this feature is set to On, but your machine doesn’t connect a
fax call when you lift a extension or external phone handset,
press the Fax Receive Code 51.
If you send faxes from a computer on the same phone line and
the machine intercepts them, set Fax Detect to Off.

Operation from extension telephones
If you answer a fax call on an extension telephone, or an external
telephone, you can make your machine take the call by using the Fax
Receive Code. When you press the Fax Receive Code 51, the
machine starts to receive a fax. (See Fax Detect on page 5-5.)
If the machine answers a voice call and pseudo/double-rings for you
to take over, use the Telephone Answer Code #51 to take the call at
an extension phone. (See Setting the F/T Ring Time (Fax/Tel mode
only) on page 5-4.)
If you answer a call and no one is on the line, you should assume that
you’re receiving a manual fax.
■ Press 51 and wait for the chirp or until the machine’s LCD
displays Receiving, and then hang up.
Your caller will have to press Start to send the fax.
For Fax/Tel mode only
When the machine is in Fax/Tel mode, it will use the F/T Ring Time
(pseudo/double-ringing) to alert you to pick up a voice call.
If you're at the machine, you can lift the handset to answer.
Lift the external telephone's handset, and then press Tel/R to
answer.
If you’re at an extension phone, you’ll need to lift the handset during
the F/T Ring Time and then press #51 between the pseudo/double
rings. If no one is on the line, or if someone wants to send you a fax,
send the call back to the machine by pressing 51.

Using a cordless external handset
If your cordless telephone is connected onto the line socket unit and
you typically carry the cordless handset elsewhere, it is easier to
answer calls during the Ring Delay. If you let the machine answer
first, you will have to go to the machine so you can press Tel/R to
transfer the call to the cordless handset.

Polling
Polling is the process of retrieving faxes from another fax machine.
You can use your machine to 'poll' other machines, or you can have
someone poll your machine.
Everyone who is involved in Polling needs to set up their fax
machines for Polling. When someone polls your machine to receive
a fax, they pay for the call. If you poll someone's fax machine to
receive a fax, you pay for the call.
Some fax machines do not respond to the Polling feature.
Secure Polling
Secure Polling is a way to keep your documents and others from
falling into the wrong hands while the machine is set up for polling.
You can use Secure Polling only with another Brother fax machine.
Anyone who polls to receive a fax must enter the polling secure code.

Telephone services
BT Callsign (For U.K. Only)
This machine feature lets you use the BT Callsign subscriber service
which allows you to have at least two separate telephone numbers
on one phone line. Each phone number has its own distinctive
ringing pattern, so you know which phone number is ringing. This is
one way you can have a separate phone number for your machine.
Your machine has a BT Callsign compatible distinctive ringing
function, allowing you to dedicate a second phone number (on the
same phone line) just for receiving faxes.
You can switch BT callsign off temporarily, then turn it back on.
When you get a new fax number, make sure you reset this
function.
When you set the BT Callsign feature to ON, the receive mode
is set to Manual automatically. You can not change the receive
mode to the other mode while the BT Callsign is set to on.

Broadcasting (Not available for colour faxes)
Broadcasting is when the same fax message is automatically sent to
more than one fax number. Using the Menu/Set key, you can
include Groups, Speed-Dial numbers and up to 50 manually dialled
numbers. If you did not use up any of the numbers for Groups,
access codes or credit card numbers, you can ‘broadcast’ faxes to
as many as 90 (MFC-3420C only) or 150 (MFC-3820CN only)
different numbers. However, the available memory will vary
depending on the types of jobs in the memory and the number of
locations used for broadcasting. If you broadcast to the maximum
numbers available, you will not be able to use Dual Access and
Delayed fax.
To include Speed-Dial numbers and manually dialled numbers in the
same broadcast, you must press Menu/Set between each of the
numbers. Use Search/Speed Dial to help you choose the numbers
easily.
(See Setting up Groups for Broadcasting on page 7-3.)
After the broadcast is finished, a Broadcast Report will be printed to
let you know the results.
■ Enter the long dialling sequence numbers as you would normally,
but remember that each Speed-Dial number counts as one
number, so the number of locations you can store becomes

7 - 4 QUICK-DIAL NUMBERS AND DIALLING OPTIONS
Dialling options
There are three ways to dial. (See How to dial on page 6-1.)
Access codes and credit card numbers
Sometimes you may want to choose from several long distance
carriers when you make a call. Rates may vary depending on the time
and destination. To take advantage of low rates, you can store the
access codes or long-distance carriers and credit card numbers as
Speed-Dial numbers. You can store these long dialling sequences by
dividing them and setting them up on separate keys in any
combination. You can even include manual dialling using the dial pad.
The combined number will be dialled in the order that you entered it
as soon as you press Mono Start or Colour Start.
(See Storing Speed-Dial numbers on page 7-1.)
For example, you can store ‘555’ on Speed-Dial #03 and ‘7000’ on
Speed-Dial #02. If you press Search/Speed Dial, #03,
Search/Speed Dial, #02, and Mono Start or Colour Start, you
will dial ‘555-7000’.
To temporarily change a number, you can substitute part of the
number with manual dialling using the dial pad.
For example, to change the number to 555-7001 you could press
Search/Speed Dial, #03 and then press 7001 using the dialling
pad.
If you must wait for another dial tone or signal at any point in the
dialling sequence, store a pause there in the number by
pressing Redial/Pause. Each key press adds a 3.5-second
delay.
QUICK-DIAL NUMBERS AND DIALLING OPTIONS 7 - 5
Pause
Press Redial/Pause to insert a 3.5-second pause between
numbers. If you are dialling overseas, you can press Redial/Pause
as many times as needed to increase the length of the pause.
Fax Redial
If you’re sending a fax manually and the line is busy, press
Redial/Pause to try again. Any time you want to make a second call
to the last number dialled, press Redial/Pause to save time.
If you’re sending a fax automatically and the line is busy, the machine
will automatically redial one time five minutes after the transmission.
Tone or Pulse
If you have a Pulse dialling service, but need to send Tone signals
(for example, for telephone banking), follow the instructions below. If
you have Touch Tone service, you will not need this feature to send
tone signals.

to print images from a digital camera.
If your digital camera supports DPOF printing, you will be able to
select on the Digital Camera display the images and number of
copies you want to print.
When the memory card (CompactFlash®, SmartMedia®, Memory

appearance of white. The white areas of a picture may be slightly
pink, yellow or some other colour. By using this adjustment you
can correct this effect and bring the white areas back to pure
white.
■ Sharpness
This setting enhances the detail of an image. It is similar to
adjusting the fine focus on a camera. If the image is not in true
focus and you cannot see the fine details of the picture, then
adjust the sharpness.
■ Colour Density
This setting adjusts the total amount of colour in the image. You
can increase or decrease the amount of colour in an image to
improve a washed out or weak picture.
Cropping
If your photo is too long or wide to fit the available space on your

If you are having difficulty with your machine
If you think there is a problem with your machine or the way your
faxes look, make a copy first. If the copy looks good, the problem is
probably not your machine. Check the chart below and follow the
troubleshooting tips.
DIFFICULTY
SUGGESTIONS
Printing or Receiving Faxes
Condensed print and white
streaks across the page or the
top and bottom of sentences
are cut off.
This can be caused by static or interference on the telephone line. You
can make a copy using the Mono Start key to see if the same problem
occurs. If the copy is also bad, call your Brother dealer for service.
Poor quality print.
Make sure the Printer Driver or Paper Type setting in the menu matches
the type of paper you are using. (See Media Type on page 1-6 in
Software User’s Guide on the CD-ROM and Setting the Paper Type on
page 4-7.) If you are using plain paper, try using the types of
recommended paper. (See About paper on page 2-4.) Don’t handle the
paper until the ink is dry. Adjust the Vertical Alignment. (See Print quality
check on page 13-12.)
Smudged stain at the top
center of the printed page.
Make sure the paper is not too thick or not curled. (See About paper on
page 2-4.)
Printing is too dark or too light.
Make sure your ink cartridges are fresh. Cartridges are good for up to
two years, after that the ink may become clogged. Cartridge expiration
dates are printed on the package. Make sure the Printer Driver matches
the type of paper you are using. (See Media Type on page 1-6 in
Software User’s Guide on the CD-ROM.) Try using the recommended
types of paper. (See About paper on page 2-4.) The recommended
environment for your machine is between 20°C to 33°C.
Printing appears dirty or ink
seems to run.
Make sure you are using the proper types of paper. (See About paper
on page 2-4.) Don’t handle the paper until the ink is dry.
The recommended environment for your machine is between 20°C to
33°C.
White horizontal lines appear
in text or graphics.
Clean the print heads. (See Cleaning the print head on page 13-12.)
Stains appear on the reverse
side or at the bottom of the
page
Make sure the Printer Platen is not dirty with ink. (See Cleaning the
machine printer platen on page 13-20.)
Vertical black lines when
receiving.
The sender’s scanner may be dirty. Ask the sender to make a copy to
see if the problem is on with the sending machine. Try receiving from
another fax machine.
If the copy is also bad, call your Brother dealer for service.
Received colour fax prints only
in black and white.
Replace the colour ink cartridges that are empty or nearly empty, and
then ask the other person to send the colour fax again. (See Replacing
the ink cartridges on page 13-21.) Check that Fax Storage is set to OFF.
(See Setting Fax Storage on page 8-2.)
Left and Right margins are cut
off or a single page is printed
on two pages.
Turn on Auto Reduction. (See Printing a reduced incoming fax (Auto
Reduction) on page 5-6.)

DIFFICULTY
SUGGESTIONS
Phone Line or Connections
The machine does not answer
when called.
Make sure the machine is in the correct receiving mode for your setup.
(See Basic receiving operations on page 5-1.) Check for a dial tone. If
possible, call your machine to hear it answer. If there is still no answer,
check the telephone line cord connection. If there is no ringing when you
call your machine, ask your telephone company to check the line.
Sending Faxes
Poor sending quality.
Try changing your resolution to Fine or S.Fine. Make a copy to check
your machine’s scanner operation.
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:NG’ or, on the
Transmission Verification Report, your machine may be out of memory.
To gain extra memory, you can turn off Fax Storage (see Setting Fax
Storage on page 8-2), print fax messages in memory (see Printing a fax
from the memory on page 5-6) or cancel a Delayed Fax or Polling Job
(See Cancelling a scheduled job on page 6-11.) If the problem
continues, ask the telephone company to check your phone line.
Vertical black lines when
sending.
If the copy you made shows the same problem, your scanner is dirty.
(See Cleaning the scanner on page 13-19.)
Handling Incoming Calls
machine ‘Hears’ Voice as
CNG Tone.
If your machine is set to Fax Detect ON, it is more sensitive to sounds.
Your machine may mistakenly interpret certain voices or music on the
line as a calling fax machine and respond with fax receiving tones.
Deactivate the fax by pressing Stop/Exit. Try avoiding this problem by
turning Fax Detect to OFF. (See Fax Detect on page 5-5.)
Sending a Fax Call to the
machine.
If you answered at the machine, press Mono Start and hang up
immediately. If you answered on an extension phone, press your Fax
Receive Code (default setting is ( 51). When your machine answers,
hang up.
Custom features on a single
line.
If you have Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, Ring Master, Voice Mail,
an alarm system or any other custom feature on a single phone line with
your machine, it may create a problem sending or receiving fax data.
For example: If you are sending or receiving a fax message while a
custom feature signal comes through on the line, the signal can
temporarily interrupt or disrupt the fax data. 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 data on a single, shared line with custom features. If avoiding a
slight interruption is crucial to your business, we recommend a separate
phone line with no custom features.

How to improve print quality
Cleaning the print head
To ensure good print quality, the machine will regularly clean the
print head. You can start the cleaning process when needed.
Clean the print head and ink cartridges if you get a horizontal line in
the text or graphics on your printed pages. You can clean two colours
at a time (Black/Cyan, Yellow/Magenta), or all four colours at once.
Cleaning the print head consumes ink. Cleaning too often uses ink
unnecessarily.
WARNING
Do NOT clean the print head by touching it with your hand or a
cloth.

Caution
■ DO NOT remove ink cartridges if you do not need to replace
them. If you do so, it may reduce the ink quantity and the printer
will not know the quantity of ink left in the cartridge.
■ DO NOT shake the ink cartridges, because the ink may spill when
you take off the sealing tape.
■ If ink stains your body or clothing, wash with soap or detergent
immediately.
■ If you install an ink cartridge in the wrong colour position, you
must clean the print head several times before you start printing
(after correcting the cartridge installation) because the colours
were mixed.
■ 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.
