The print quality can be affected by the type
of paper you use 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.

Handling and using media
You can use plain paper, inkjet paper (coated
paper), glossy paper, transparencies and
envelopes.
„ Store paper in its original packaging, and
keep it sealed. Keep the paper flat and away
from moisture, direct sunlight and heat.
We recommend testing various paper types
before buying large quantities.
„ The coated side of photo paper is shiny.
Avoid touching the shiny (coated) side.
Load photo paper with the shiny side
facing down.
For best results, use Brother paper.
„ 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 23.)
„ 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.
„ 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 top of the
instruction sheet.
Improper Setup
„ When you use transparencies or photo
paper, remove each sheet at once to
prevent smudging or paper jams.
DO NOT use the following kinds of paper:
• Damaged, curled, wrinkled, or
irregularly shaped paper
„ Avoid touching the printed surface of the
paper immediately after printing; the
surface may not be completely dry and
may stain your fingers.
Recommended media
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.

The Caller ID feature lets you use the Caller
ID subscriber service offered by many local
telephone companies. Call your telephone
company for details. This service shows the
telephone number, or name if it is available,
of your caller as the line rings.
You can use a number in the Caller ID history
to make a phone call, send a fax, add it to
Speed Dial, or delete it from the history. (See
Caller ID history (For U.K. and Ireland only)
on page 55.)

After a few rings, the LCD shows the
telephone number of your caller (and name, if
available). Once you answer a call, the Caller
ID information disappears from the LCD, but
the call information stays stored in the Caller
ID memory.
„ You can see the first 18 characters of the
number (or name).
„ The ID Unknown message means the
call originated outside your Caller ID
service area.
„ The ID Withheld message means the
caller has intentionally blocked
transmission of information.

You can program a R key press as part of
a number stored in a Speed Dial location.
When programming the Speed Dial
number, press R first (the LCD shows ‘!’),
then enter the telephone number. If you do
this, you do not need to press R each time
before you dial using a Speed Dial
location. (See Storing numbers
on page 56.) However, if PBX is not
chosen in the Phone Line Type setting,
you cannot use the Speed Dial number
that the R press is programmed into.
Press a or b to choose

BT Call Sign (For U.K. only)
d
Press d or c to choose PBX, ISDN (or
Normal).
Press OK.
e
Press Stop/Exit.
This machine feature lets you use the BT Call
Sign subscriber service which allows you to
have at least two separate telephone
numbers on one telephone line. Each
telephone number has its own distinctive
ringing pattern, so you know which telephone
number is ringing. This is one way you can
have a separate telephone number for your
machine.
PBX and TRANSFER
The machine is initially set to Normal, which
lets the machine connect to a standard PSTN
(Public Switched Telephone Network) line.
However, many offices use a central
telephone system or Private Branch
Exchange (PBX). Your machine can be
connected to most types of PBX. The
machine's recall feature supports timed break
recall only (TBR). TBR will work with most
PBX systems allowing you to gain access to
an outside line, or transfer calls to another
extension. The feature works when or R is
pressed.
7
Your machine has a BT Call Sign compatible
distinctive ringing function, allowing you to
dedicate a second telephone number (on the
same telephone line) just for receiving faxes.
Note
• 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. This machine will
automatically answer incoming calls that
use your new fax number.
• When you set the BT Call Sign feature to
ON, the receive mode is set to Manual
automatically. Manual mode will not
respond to incoming telephone calls,
since the number you use for telephone
calls will use the normal ring pattern.

Connecting an external
TAD (telephone
answering device)
7
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 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.
Note
If you do not receive all your faxes, shorten
the Ring Delay setting on your external TAD.

The external TAD must be connected as

a
Set your external TAD to one or two
rings. (The machine's Ring Delay setting
does not apply.)
b
Record the outgoing message on your
external TAD.
c
d
Set the TAD to answer calls.
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 rerecord the OGM to include it.
50
We suggest you ask the company who
installed your PBX to connect your machine.
If you have a multi line system we suggest
you ask the installer to connect the unit to the
last line on the system. This prevents the
machine being activated each time the
system receives telephone calls. If all
incoming calls will be answered by a
switchboard operator we recommend that
you set the Receive Mode to Manual.
We cannot guarantee that your machine will
operate properly under all circumstances
when connected to a PBX. Any difficulties
with sending or receiving faxes should be
reported first to the company who handles
your PBX.
Set the Receive Mode to Manual and
turn Fax Detect on.

Operation from extension
telephones
If you answer a fax call on an extension or an
external telephone, you can make your
machine take the call by using the Remote
Activation Code. When you press the Remote
Activation Code l 5 1, the machine starts to
receive the fax.
If the machine answers a voice call and
pseudo/double-rings for you to take over, use
the Remote Deactivation Code # 5 1 to take
the call at an extension telephone. (See F/T
Ring Time (Fax/Tel mode only) on page 41.)
You should assume that you're receiving a
manual fax.
Press l 5 1 and wait for the chirp or until the
LCD shows Receiving, and then hang up.

make your machine automatically take the
call. (See Fax Detect on page 42.)

Your premises may already be wired with
parallel extension telephones, or you may
plan to add extension telephones to your line,
as well as your machine. While the simplest
arrangement is a straightforward parallel
connection, there are some problems with
this arrangement, the most obvious of which
is inadvertent interruption of a facsimile
transmission caused by someone picking up
an extension telephone to make an outgoing
call. Also, remote activation 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.
These problems can easily be eliminated, 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 this configuration the 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 offhook detection.’
51

Chapter 7
The inadvisable configuration is shown in
figure 1 on the next page, and the
recommended master/slave configuration is
shown in figure 2.
Note
These telephones are now connected as
external devices (see Connecting an
external or extension telephone
on page 51), because they are connected
to the fax machine via the T-connector.
This new connection configuration can be
arranged by contacting BT, Kingston upon
Hull Telecommunications, your PBX
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
put into the modular socket of the white ‘T’shaped connector provided as part of the line
cord assembly.

card it creates a special folder into which it
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
modified image files to the memory card
we also recommend you use the same
folder your digital camera uses. If the data
is not saved to the same folder, the
machine may not be able to read the file or

Troubleshooting and Routine Maintenance
Printing Received Faxes
Difficulty
Suggestions
Condensed print and white streaks
across the page or the top and
bottom of sentences are cut off.
You probably had a bad connection, with static or interference on the telephone
line. Ask the other party to send the fax again.
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 with the sending machine. Try receiving from another fax machine.
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 136.) Check that Advanced Fax Operation is set to off. (See
Turning off Advanced Fax Operations on page 70.)
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 on page 43.)

Print the Transmission Verification Report and check for an error. (See
Reports on page 75.)
Transmission Verification Report
says ‘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. To gain extra memory,
you can turn off Advanced Fax Operation (see Turning off Advanced Fax
Operations on page 70), print fax messages in memory (see Printing a fax from
the memory on page 44) or cancel a Delayed Fax or Polling Job (see Cancelling
a fax in progress on page 33 or Checking and cancelling waiting jobs on page 37).
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 135.)
If you connect your machine to PBX or ISDN, set the menu setting of Telephone
Line Type to your telephone type. (See Setting the Telephone Line
Type on page 48.)
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 139.)
Vertical black lines when sending.
Black vertical lines on faxes you send are typically caused by dirt or correction
fluid on the glass strip. Clean the glass strip. (See Cleaning the
scanner on page 139.)
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 42.)
Sending a fax call to the machine.
If you answered on an external or extension telephone, press your Remote
Activation Code (the factory setting is l 5 1). 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 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.

receiving a fax due to possible interference
on the telephone line, you can change the
compatibility setting, which reduces the
modem speed to minimise errors.
Note
Make sure you pull out the paper support
until it clicks.
Dial Tone detection
When you send a fax automatically, by
default your machine will wait for a fixed
amount of time before it starts to dial the
number. By changing the Dial Tone setting to
Detection you can make your machine dial
as soon as it detects a dial tone. This setting
can save a small amount of time when
sending a fax to many different numbers. If
you change the setting and start having
problems with dialling you should change
back to the factory No Detection setting.

Routine maintenance
Replacing the ink cartridges
B
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.
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 and
Black.
b
Pull the lock release lever down and
take out the ink cartridge for the colour
shown on the LCD.
c
Open the new ink cartridge bag for the
colour shown on the LCD, and then take
out the ink cartridge.
d
Remove the protective yellow cap (1).

Lift the lock release lever and push it
until it clicks, and then close the ink
cartridge cover.
If ink gets in your eyes, wash them out with
water at once and call a doctor if you are
concerned.
B
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.
g
The machine will automatically reset the
ink dot counter.
Note
• If you replaced an ink cartridge, the LCD
will ask you to verify that it was a brand
new one. (For example,
Did You Change
Black) 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).
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.
• If the LCD shows No Cartridge after
you install the ink cartridges, check that
the ink cartridges are installed properly.

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.

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 500 pages at 5% coverage
Yellow, Cyan and Magenta - Approximately 400 pages at 5%
coverage
„ The above figures assume continuous printing at a resolution of
600 x 600 dpi in normal mode after installing 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.
