Safety precautions
To use the MFC safely
Save these instructions for later reference.
WARNING
There are high voltage
electrodes inside the MFC.
Before you clean the MFC or
clear a paper jam, make sure
you have unplugged the power
cord from the AC power
socket.
Do not handle the plug with wet
hands. Doing this might cause
an electrical shock.
After you use the MFC, some internal parts are extremely HOT!
To prevent injuries, be careful not to put your fingers in the area shown in

INTRODUCTION 1 - 7
About fax machines
Fax tones and handshake
When someone is sending a fax, the MFC sends fax calling tones
(CNG tones). These are quiet, intermittent beeps every 4-seconds.
You will hear them after you dial and press 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 will 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 MFC is set to the Fax Only mode, it will answer every call
automatically with fax receiving tones. If the other person hangs up,
your MFC 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 machines “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 1-11.)
1 - 8 INTRODUCTION
ECM (Error Correction Mode)
The Error Correction Mode (ECM) is a way for the MFC to check a
fax transmission while it is in progress. If the MFC 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 MFC.
Your MFC must have enough memory for this feature to work.
INTRODUCTION 1 - 9
Connecting the MFC
Connecting an external telephone
Although your MFC does not have a handset, you can connect a
separate telephone (or telephone answering device) directly to your
MFC as shown in the diagram below.

(Example
for the U.K.)
Whenever this phone (or TAD) is in use, the LCD shows
Telephone.
1 - 10 INTRODUCTION
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 MFC,
the TAD answers all calls and the MFC “listens” for fax calling (CNG)
tones. If it hears them, the MFC takes over the call and receives the
fax. If it does not hear CNG tones, the MFC 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 MFC 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.
If you do not receive all your faxes, reduce the Ring Delay
setting on your external TAD.
INTRODUCTION 1 - 11
Do not connect a TAD elsewhere on the same phone line.
TAD
TAD
(Example
for the U.K.)
Connections
The external TAD must be connected as shown above.
1 Set your external TAD to one or two rings. (The MFC’s Ring
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.)
1 - 12 INTRODUCTION
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 MFC 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 Remote Activation
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 MFC cannot hear fax tones over a resonant
or loud voice. You may try omitting this pause, but if your MFC
has trouble receiving, then you must rerecord the OGM to
include it.
INTRODUCTION 1 - 13
Using extension telephones (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, remote activation 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. 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.

INTRODUCTION 1 - 15
Multi-line connections (PBX)
Most offices use a central telephone system. While it is often
relatively simple to connect the MFC 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 MFC for you. It is advisable to have a separate line for
the MFC.
If the MFC 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.
As with all fax units, this MFC must be connected to a two wire
system. If your line has more than two wires, proper connection
of the MFC cannot be made.
If you are installing the MFC to work with a PBX
1
2
It is not guaranteed that the unit will operate correctly 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.
If you are installing the MFC to work with a PBX you need to set
Phone Line Set to PBX (Menu, 0, 4).
Custom features on your phone line
If you have Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, 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 MFC. (See If you are having difficulty with your MFC on page
12-11.)

Choosing acceptable paper
We recommend that you test paper (especially special sizes and
types of paper) on the MFC before purchasing large quantities.
■ Avoid feeding label sheets that are partly used or your MFC will
be damaged.
■ Avoid using coated paper, such as vinyl coated paper.
■ Avoid using preprinted or highly textured paper, or paper with an
embossed letterhead.
For optimum printing, use a recommended type of paper, especially
for plain paper and transparencies. For more information on paper
specifications, call your nearest authorized sales representative or
the place where you purchased your MFC.
■ Use label or transparencies that are designed for use in laser
printers.
■ For the best print quality, we recommend using long-grained
paper.
■ If you are using special paper and the paper has problems
feeding from the paper tray, try again using the manual feed tray.
■ You can use recycled paper in this MFC.

Setting the Station ID
You should store your name or company name and fax number to be
printed on all fax pages that you send.
It is important that you enter the fax and telephone numbers in the
internationally standardized 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.

telephone system or Private Automatic Branch Exchange (PABX).
Your MFC can be connected to most types of PABX. The MFC’s
recall feature supports timed break recall only (TBR). TBR will work
with most PABX systems, allowing you to gain access to an outside
line or transfer calls to another extension. The feature works when
the Tel/R key is pressed.
You can program a Tel/R key press as part of a number stored
in a One-Touch or Speed-Dial location. When programming the
One-Touch or Speed-Dial number (Function menu 2-3-1 or

Basic receiving operations
Choosing the Receive Mode
There are four different Receive Modes for your MFC. You can
choose the mode that best suits your needs.
LCD
How it works
When to use it
Fax Only
(automatic receive)
The MFC automatically
answers every call as a
fax.
For dedicated fax lines.
Fax/Tel
(fax and telephone)
The MFC 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 can not
have an answering machine on the same line, even
if it is on a separate wall socket/phone socket on
the same line. You can not 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 an external 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 do not receive
many fax messages, or with Distinctive Ring.
If you answer and hear fax tones, wait until the MFC
takes over the call, then hang up. (See Fax Detect
on page 5-5.)

This pseudo/double-ring happens after the initial ringing from the
phone company. Only the MFC rings (for 20, 30, 40 or 70 seconds)
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) or on the

phone connected to another wall socket/phone socket, just replace
the handset and your MFC will do the rest. Selecting Off means you
will have to activate the MFC yourself by lifting the handset of an
external or extension phone, and then press Start on the MFC
—OR—by pressing 51 if you are not at your MFC. (See Operation
from extension telephones on page 5-9.)

Advanced receiving operations
Operation from extension telephones
If you answer a fax call on an extension telephone, or an external
telephone into the correct socket on the machine, you can make your
MFC take the call by using the Remote Activation Code. When you
press the Remote Activation Code 51, the MFC starts to receive
a fax.
(See Fax Detect on page 5-5.)
If the MFC answers a voice call and pseudo/double-rings for you to
take over, use the Deactivation 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.
■ At an extension phone (on a separate telephone wall
socket/phone socket), press 51, wait for fax-receiving tones
(chirps), and then hang up.
■ At an external phone (connected to the MFC’s EXT socket),
press 51 and wait for the phone to be disconnected before you
hang up (the LCD shows Receiving).
Your caller will have to press Start to send the fax.
For Fax/Tel mode only
When the MFC 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.
Lift the external telephone's handset, and then press Tel/R to
answer.
If you’re at an extension phone, you will need to lift the handset
during the F/T Ring Time and then press #51 between the double
rings. If no one is on the line, or if someone wants to send you a fax,
send the call back to the MFC by pressing 51.
SETUP RECEIVE 5 - 9
Using a cordless external handset
If your cordless telephone is connected to the correct socket on the
MFC and you typically carry the cordless handset elsewhere, it is
easier to answer calls during the Ring Delay. In Fax/Tel mode if you
let the MFC answer first, you will have to go to the MFC so you can
press Tel/R to transfer the call to the cordless handset.
Changing the remote codes
Remote Codes might not work with some telephone systems. The
preset Remote Activation code is 51. The preset Deactivation
code is # 51.
If you are always disconnected when accessing your external
TAD remotely, try changing the Remote Activation code and
Deactivation code to another three-digit code (such as ### and

Polling
Polling is the process of retrieving faxes from another fax machine.
You can use your MFC to 'poll' other machines, or you can have
someone poll your MFC.
Everyone who is involved in Polling needs to set up their fax
machines for Polling. When someone polls your MFC 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 original documents and others
from falling into the wrong hands while the MFC 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 Call Sign (U.K. only)
This MFC feature lets you use the BT Call Sign 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 MFC.
Your MFC has a BT Call Sign 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 Call Sign 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 Call Sign feature to ON, the receive mode
is set to Manual automatically. You cannot change the receive
mode to any other mode while the BT Call Sign is set to on.

Dialling operations
You can use the MFC to make voice telephone calls by dialling
manually or by using Search, One-Touch Dial or Speed-Dial
memory. (For instructions, see How to dial on page 6-1.) You can
use the handset of the external telephone to make and receive calls.
When you dial a Quick-Dial number, the LCD shows the name you
have stored, or if you have not stored a name, the fax number you
have stored.
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 One-Touch and 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 Start.
(See Storing One-Touch Dial numbers on page 7-1.)
For example, you can store ‘555’ on One-Touch key 03 and ‘7000’
on One-Touch key 02. If you press One-Touch key 03, One-Touch
key 02, and 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
One-Touch key 03 and then press 7001 using the dial 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.

Paper jams
To clear paper jams, please follow the steps in this section.
WARNING
Before you clear a paper jam, make sure you have switched off and
unplugged the MFC. After you have just used the MFC, some parts
inside the MFC are extremely hot. When you open the front cover or
back output tray of the MFC, never touch the shaded parts shown in
the following diagram.

Back view
HOT!
Clear the jammed paper as follows.
If the jammed paper is removed completely by using the information
in the following steps, you can install the paper tray first, and then
close the front cover and the MFC will resume printing automatically.
■ If a paper jam occurs when using the optional lower tray unit,
check for correct installation of the upper paper tray.
■ Always remove all paper from the paper tray and straighten
the stack when you add new paper. This helps prevent
multiple sheets of paper from feeding through the MFC at
one time and reduces paper jams.

TROUBLESHOOTING AND ROUTINE MAINTENANCE 12 - 10
If you are having difficulty with your MFC
If you think there is a problem with the way your faxes look, make a
copy first. If the copy looks good, the problem is probably not your
MFC. Check the chart below and follow the troubleshooting tips.
DIFFICULTY
SUGGESTIONS
Printing or Receiving Faxes
Condensed print and
horizontal streaks or the top
and bottom of sentences are
cut off.
If your copy looks good, you probably had a bad connection, with static
or interference on the telephone line. If the copy looks bad, clean the
scanner area. If there is still a problem, call Brother or your dealer for
service.
Vertical black lines when
receiving.
Sometimes you may see vertical streaks/black lines on the faxes you
receive. Your MFC’s primary corona wire for printing may be dirty, or the
sending party’s fax scanner may be dirty. Clean your primary corona
wire. (See Cleaning the drum unit on page 12-24.) Ask the sender to
make a copy to see if the problem is with the sending machine. Try
receiving from another fax machine. If the problem continues call your
dealer for service.
Horizontal streaks; lines are
missing.
You may get a fax with horizontal streaks or with missing lines. Usually
this is caused by a poor telephone connection. Ask the other party to
send the fax again.
Received faxes appear as split
or blank pages.
If the received data is divided and printed on two pages or if you get an
additional blank page, make sure that auto reduction setting is turned
On. (See Printing a reduced incoming fax (Auto Reduction) on page
5-6.)
Phone Line or Connections
Dialling does not work
Check for a dial tone. Change Tone/Pulse setting. (See Setting Tone
or Pulse dialling mode (Excluding the Nordic Countries) on page 4-13.)
Check all line cord connections.
The MFC does not answer
when called.
Make sure the MFC is in the correct receiving mode for your setup. (See
Choosing the Receive Mode on page 5-1 and To select or change your
Receive Mode on page 5-2.) Check for a dial tone. If possible, call your
MFC 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 MFC, 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 MFC’s scanner operation. If copy quality is not good, clean the
scanner. (See Cleaning the scanner on page 12-22.)
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 MFC 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 Polling on
page 5-11) or cancel a Delayed Fax or Polling Job (see Cancelling a fax
in progress on page 6-9). If the problem continues, ask the telephone
company to check your phone line.
12 - 11 TROUBLESHOOTING AND ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
DIFFICULTY
SUGGESTIONS
Vertical black lines when
sending.
If the copy you made shows the same problem, your scanner is dirty.
(See Cleaning the scanner on page 12-22.)
The other party does not
receive my fax.
Send a manual fax so you can listen to make sure the other party’s
machine is answering. Lift the external handset and dial the number.
Wait to hear fax receiving tones, and then press Start.
Handling Incoming Calls
MFC ‘Hears’ Voice as CNG
Tone.
If your MFC is set to Fax Detect On, it is more sensitive to sounds. Your
MFC 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.)
Transferring a Fax Call to the
MFC.
If you answered at the MFC, press Start and hang up immediately. If
you answered on an external or extension phone, press your Remote
Activation Code (default setting is ( 51). When your MFC answers,
hang up.
Custom features on a single
line.
If you have Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, RingMaster, Voice Mail,
an answering machine, an alarm system or other custom feature on a
single phone line with your MFC, it may create a problem sending or
receiving fax data.
Menu Setting Difficulties
The MFC beeps when you try
to access the Setup
Receive and Setup Send
menus.
Make sure that MFC is in Fax mode. If the Fax
key is not
illuminated, press it to turn on Fax mode. Setup Receive setting
(Menu, 2, 1) and Setup Send setting (Menu, 2, 2) are available only
when the MFC is in Fax mode.
Copy Quality Difficulties
Vertical streaks appear in
copies.
Sometimes you may see vertical streaks on your copies. Either the
scanner or the primary corona wire for printing is dirty. Clean them both.
(See Cleaning the scanner on page 12-22 and Cleaning the drum unit
on page 12-24.)
Printer Difficulties
The MFC does not print.
Check the following:
• The MFC is plugged in and power switch turned on.
• The toner cartridge and drum unit are installed properly. (See
Replacing the drum unit on page 12-30.)
• The interface cable is securely connected between the MFC and
computer. (See the Quick Setup Guide.)
• Check to see if LCD is showing an error message. (See Error
messages on page 12-1.)
The MFC prints unexpectedly
or it prints garbage.

Replacing the toner cartridge
The MFC can print up to 6,700 pages using a high yield toner
cartridge (TN-3060). When the toner cartridge is running low, the
LCD shows Toner Low. The MFC is supplied with a standard toner
cartridge (TN-3030) that must be replaced after approximately 3,500
pages. Actual page count will vary depending on your average type
of original document (i.e., standard letter, detailed graphics).
It is a good idea to keep a new toner cartridge ready for use
when you see the Toner Low warning.
Discard the used toner cartridge according to local regulations,
keeping it separate from domestic waste. Be sure to seal the toner
cartridge tightly so toner powder does not spill out of the cartridge. If
you have questions, call your local waste disposal office.
We recommend that you clean the MFC when you replace the toner
cartridge.

Replacing the drum unit
The MFC uses a drum unit to create print images on paper. If the
LCD shows Change Drum Soon, the drum unit is near the end of
its life and it is time to purchase a new one (DR-3000).
Even if the LCD shows Change Drum Soon, you may be able to
continue printing without having to replace the drum unit for a while.
However, if there is a noticeable deterioration in the output print
quality (even before Change Drum Soon appears), then the drum
unit should be replaced. You should clean the MFC when you
replace the drum unit. (See Cleaning the drum unit on page 12-24.)
Caution
When removing the drum unit, handle it carefully because it contains
toner. If toner scatters and your hands or clothes get dirty,
immediately wipe or wash with cold water.
