Acceptable paper and
other print media
Type and size of paper
2
Print quality may vary according to the type of
paper you are using.
You can use the following types of print
media: thin paper, plain paper, thick paper,
bond paper, recycled paper, transparencies,
labels or envelopes.
For best results, follow the instructions below:
„ Use paper made for plain paper copying.
„ Use paper that is 60 to 105 gsm.
„ Use labels and transparencies which are
designed for use in laser machines.
„ DO NOT put different types of paper in the
paper tray at the same time because it
may cause paper jams or misfeeds.
„ For correct printing, you must choose the
same paper size from your software
application as the paper in the tray.
„ Avoid touching the printed surface of the
paper immediately after printing.
„ When you use transparencies remove
each sheet immediately to prevent
smudging or paper jams.
„ Use long grain paper with a neutral Ph
value, and a moisture content of approx.
5%.
The machine loads paper from the installed
standard paper tray, optional lower tray
(MFC-8380DN) or multi-purpose tray.
Standard paper tray
2
Since the standard paper tray is a universal
type, you can use any of the paper sizes (one
paper type and size at a time) listed in the
table in Paper capacity of the paper trays
on page 15. The standard paper tray can
hold up to 250 sheets of Letter/A4, Legal or
Folio size paper (80 gsm). Paper can be
loaded up to the maximum paper mark on the
sliding paper width guide.
Multi-purpose tray (MP tray)
2
The MP tray can hold up to 50 sheets of plain
paper (80 gsm) or up to 3 envelopes. Paper
can be loaded up to the maximum paper mark
on the sliding paper width guide.
Optional lower tray (LT-5300)
(MFC-8380DN)
2
The optional lower tray can hold up to 250
sheets of Letter/A4, Legal and Folio size
paper (80 gsm). Paper can be loaded up to
the top line of the maximum paper mark on
the sliding paper width guide.

Chapter 2
Handling and using special
paper
The machine is designed to work well with
most types of xerographic and bond paper.
However, some paper variables may have an
effect on print quality or handling reliability.
Always test samples of paper before
purchasing to ensure desirable performance.
Store paper in its original packaging and keep
it sealed. Keep the paper flat and away from
moisture, direct sunlight and heat.
Types of paper to avoid
IMPORTANT
2
Some types of paper may not perform well
or may cause damage to your machine.
DO NOT use paper:
• that is highly textured
• that is extremely smooth or shiny
• that is curled or warped
1
Some important guidelines when selecting
paper are:
„ Do not use inkjet paper because it may
cause a paper jam or damage your
machine.
1
„ Preprinted paper must use ink that can
withstand the temperature of the
machine's fusing process (200 degrees
centigrade).
• that is coated or has a chemical finish
„ If you use bond paper, paper having a
rough surface or paper that is wrinkled or
creased, the paper may exhibit degraded
performance.
1
2mm or greater curl may cause jams
to occur.
• that is damaged, creased or folded
• that exceeds the recommended weight
specification in this guide
• with tabs and staples
• with letterheads using low temperature
dyes or thermography
• that is multipart or carbonless
• that is designed for inkjet printing
If you use any of the types of paper listed
above, they may damage your machine.
This damage may not be covered under
any Brother warranty or service
agreement.

Envelopes
2
Most envelopes will be suitable for your
machine. However, some envelopes may
have feed and print-quality problems
because of the way they have been made. A
suitable envelope should have edges with
straight, well-creased folds and the leading
edge should not be thicker than two sheets of
paper. The envelope should lie flat and not be
of baggy or flimsy construction. You should
buy quality envelopes from a supplier who
understands that you will be using the
envelopes in a laser machine.
Types of envelopes to avoid
2
IMPORTANT
DO NOT use envelopes:
• that are damaged, curled, wrinkled or
an unusual shape
• that are extremely shiny or textured
• with clasps, staples, snaps or tie
strings
• with self-adhesive closures
• that are of a baggy construction
Envelopes can only be fed from the MP tray.
Do not print envelopes using duplex printing.
We recommend that you print a test envelope
to make sure the print results are what you
want before you print or purchase a large
quantity of envelopes.
• that are not sharply creased
Check the following:
• that are pre-printed on the inside
• that are embossed (have raised writing
on them)
• that were previously printed by a laser
machine
„ Envelopes should have a lengthwise
sealing flap.
• that cannot be arranged neatly when
stacked
„ The sealing flaps should be folded crisply
and correctly (irregularly cut or folded
envelopes may cause paper jams).
• that are made of paper that weighs
more than the paper weight
specifications for the machine
„ Envelopes should consist of two layers of
paper in the area circled in figure below.
• with edges that are not straight or
consistently square
• with windows, holes, cut-outs or
perforations
• with glue on surface as shown in figure
below
1

1
Feeding direction
„ Envelope joints that are sealed by the
manufacturer should be secure.
„ We recommend that you do not print
within 15 mm of the edges of envelopes.
• with double flaps as shown in figure
below
17
2
Chapter 2
• with sealing flaps that have not been
folded at purchase
• with sealing flaps as shown in figure
below
• with each side folded as shown in
figure below
If you use any of the types of envelopes
listed above, they may damage your
machine. This damage may not be
covered under any Brother warranty or
service agreement.
Occasionally you may experience paper
feed problems caused by the thickness,
size and flap shape of the envelopes you
are using.
Labels
2
The machine will print on most types of labels
designed for use with a laser machine. Labels
should have an adhesive that is acrylic-based
since this material is more stable at the high
temperatures in the fuser unit. Adhesives
should not come in contact with any part of
the machine, because the label stock may
stick to the drum unit or rollers and cause
jams and print quality problems. No adhesive
should be exposed between the labels.
Labels should be arranged so that they cover
the entire length and width of the sheet. Using
labels with spaces may result in labels
peeling off and causing serious jams or print
problems.
All labels used in this machine must be able
to withstand a temperature of 392 degrees
Fahrenheit (200 degrees centigrade) for a
period of 0.1 seconds.
Label sheets should not exceed the paper
weight specifications described in this User’s
Guide. Labels exceeding this specification
may not feed or print correctly and may cause
damage to your machine.
Labels can be fed from the MP Tray.
Types of labels to avoid
Do not use labels that are damaged, curled,
wrinkled or an unusual shape.
IMPORTANT
DO NOT feed part used label sheets. The
exposed carrier sheet will damage your
machine.

When somebody calls your machine, you and
your caller will hear the normal telephone ring
sound. The number of rings is set by the Ring
Delay setting.
If the call is a fax, then your machine will
receive it; however, if it is a voice call the
machine will sound the F/T ring (a fast
double-ring) for the time you have set in the
F/T Ring Time setting. If you hear the F/T ring
it means that you have a voice caller on the
line.
Because the F/T ring is made by the machine,
extension and external telephones will not
ring; however, you can still answer the call on
any telephone. (For more information see

Do you have Voice Mail?
If you have Voice Mail on the telephone line
that you will install your new Machine on,
there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail
and the Machine will conflict with each other
while receiving incoming calls. However, the
Distinctive Ring feature allows you to use
more than one number on your line, so
both Voice Mail and the Machine can work
together without any problems. If each one
has a separate telephone number, neither will
interfere with the other’s operations.
If you decide to get the Distinctive Ring
service from the telephone company, you will
need to follow the directions to ‘register’ the
new Distinctive Ring pattern they give you.
This is so your Machine can recognize its
incoming calls.

Telstra® FaxStream® Duet®
(Distinctive Ringing)
7
Telstra® FaxStream® Duet® is an enhanced
Public Switched Telephone Service (PSTS)
offered by Telstra® that allows you to have an
additional number on one telephone 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 Ringing
function, allowing you to dedicate one
telephone number just for receiving faxes.
Note
After you have set the Distinctive Ring
feature to On, the receive mode is set to
Manual automatically. Your Distinctive
Ring Number does not allow Voice Calls only Faxes. You cannot change the
receive mode from Manual mode while
the Distinctive Ring is set to on.

Chapter 7
What is the Advantage of using
Telstra® FaxStream® Duet® Function?
How does Telstra® FaxStream® Duet®
Work?
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 telephones (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 telephones will ring twice with a
distinctive ring pattern. It is also a more
efficient way of operating a Fax machine with
an extension telephone 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.
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.
7
When FaxStream® Duet® is On and you
receive a voice call all extension and external
telephones 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 telephones 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
telephones will ring twice with a distinctive
ring pattern. Do not answer the telephone as
you are receiving a fax message.

FaxAbility
How Does FaxAbility Work?
7
7
FaxAbility is a service offered by Telecom
that allows you to have an additional number
on one telephone line, with its own distinctive
ring pattern. This way, when you get an
incoming call, you can identify the number
being called by its ring.
How Will the Fax Machine Treat All
Other Numbers?
7
FaxAbility mode ensures that the machine
will answer calls to the FaxAbility (secondary)
number. When a call comes in to your main
number, all the telephones will ring. You can
set an external answering device (TAD) to
answer calls on the other number(s). (See the
chart in the following page.)
What is the Advantage of Using the
FaxAbility Function?
Using FaxAbility is the most efficient way to
receive both fax and telephone calls on the
same line. It is much easier for your callers
who dial manually. The fax machine will
answer with receiving tones so they will not
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
numbers without the higher cost of a second
line.
54
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
telephones 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 telephones 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 telephone 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
7
You can connect an external Telephone
Answering Device (TAD) to the same line as
your machine. When the TAD answers a call,
your machine will “listen” for the CNG (fax
calling) tones sent by a sending fax machine.
If it hears them it will take over the call and
receive the fax. If it does not hear them, it will
let your TAD take a voice message and the
display will show Telephone.
The external TAD must answer within four
rings (we recommend you set it to two rings).
This is because your machine cannot hear
the CNG tones until the external TAD has
picked up the call. The sending machine will
send CNG tones for only eight to ten seconds
longer. We do not recommend using the toll
saver feature on your external TAD if it needs
more than four rings to activate it.
7
Note
If you have problems receiving faxes,
reduce the ring delay setting on your
external TAD to one or two rings.

Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
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 l51 (l91 for New
Zealand) and Start.”
Note
• You need to turn the Remote Codes
setting to on to use the Fax Receive Code
l51 (l91 for New Zealand). (See Using
Remote Codes on page 60.)
• We recommend beginning your OGM with
an initial 5 second silence because the
machine cannot hear fax tones over a loud
voice. You may try leaving out this pause,
but if your machine has trouble receiving
faxes, then you should re-record the OGM
to include it.
58
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.

Important Information for New Zealand
IMPORTANT-For Your Safety
A
A
To ensure safe operation the three-pin plug supplied must be inserted only into a standard
threepin power point which is effectively grounded through the normal household wiring.
Extension cords used with the equipment must be three-conductor and be correctly wired to
provide connection to ground. Incorrectly wired extension cords are a major cause of fatalities.
The fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily does not imply that the power is grounded and
that the installation is completely safe. For your safety, if in any doubt about the effective
grounding of the power, consult a qualified electrician.

24 This unit will only work in conjunction with a tone signalling (DTMF) telephone, but some
telephones are not compatible. Since noise or speech from the telephone can upset dialling
from this unit, errors may result if the devices are used together in other than quiet conditions.
25 Where it is necessary to dial prefix digits, such as a Caller Display override code (“0196 ” or
“0197 ”), this unit will have to be used in conjunction with an associated tone signalling (DTMF)
telephone.
26 Note that some telephones are not compatible with this unit and dialling errors may result if the
two devices are used together in other than quiet conditions. The Telecom Faults Service is
not to be called should such problems arise. In such cases, it is recommended that the prefix
and wanted number are dialled manually.
27 This equipment may not provide for the effective hand-over of a call to another device
connected to the same line.
28 This equipment is not capable, under all operating conditions, of correct operation at the higher
speeds for which it is designed. Telecom will accept no responsibility should difficulties arise
in such circumstances. This condition typically applies to 56 kbit/s modems and facsimile
machines operating at >14.4 kbit/s.
29 When using the Caller Line Identification incorporated in this device, verify the integrity of the
recorded digits prior to dialling.
30 Some parameters required for compliance with Telecom’s Telepermit requirements are
dependent on the equipment (PC) associated with this device. The associated equipment shall
be set to operate within the following limits for compliance with Telecom’s Specifications:
„ There shall be no more than 10 call attempts to the same number within any 30 minute
period for any single manual call initiation, and
„ The equipment shall go on-hook for a period of not less than 30 seconds between the end
of one attempt and the beginning of the next call attempt.
„ Automatic calls to different numbers are spaced such that there is not less than 5 seconds
between the end of one call attempt and the beginning of another.
„ Equipment shall be set to ensure that calls are answered within 3 and 30 seconds of the
receipt of ringing.
31 In the event of any problem with this device, it is to be disconnected, and a CPE item connected
to one of its terminal ports may be connected directly in its place. The user should then arrange
for the product to be repaired. Should the matter be reported to Telecom as a wiring fault and
the fault is proven to be due to this product, a call out charge will be incurred by the customer.
32 The caller ID telephone numbers that are displayed and stored in this equipment include the
caller’s area code but not the toll access “0” prefix. When calling back it is necessary to add a
“0“ to the telephone number, or if the telephone number is a local number, omit the area code
digit. If the toll services of a service provider other than Telecom are being used then a toll
charge may be incurred if the “0” prefix toll access code and area code are used.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Under power failure conditions, this telephone may not operate. Please ensure that a separate
telephone, not dependent on local power, is available for emergency use in emergencies.

Make sure the machine is in the correct receive mode for your setup. (See
Receiving a fax on page 45.) 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 you do not hear ringing when you call your machine, ask your
telephone company to check the line.
Receiving Faxes
Difficulties
Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
Make sure your machine has a dial tone by pressing the Hook key. If you hear
static or interference on your fax line, please contact your local telephone
company.
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into
the telephone wall jack and the LINE jack of the machine. If you subscribe to DSL
or VoIP services, please contact your service provider for connection instructions.
Make sure the machine is in the correct Receive Mode. This is determined by the
external devices and telephone subscriber services you have on the same line as
the Brother machine. (See Receive Mode settings on page 47.)
If you have a dedicated fax line and want your Brother machine to automatically
answer all incoming faxes, you should select Fax Only mode.
If your Brother machine shares a line with an external answering machine, you
should select the External TAD mode. In External TAD mode, your Brother
machine will automatically receive incoming faxes and voice callers will be able to
leave a message on your answering machine.
If your Brother machine shares a line with other telephones and you want it to
automatically answer all incoming faxes, you should select the Fax/Tel mode. In
Fax/Tel mode, your Brother machine will automatically receive faxes and
produce a pseudo/double-ring to alert you to answer voice calls.
If you do not want your Brother machine to automatically answer any incoming
faxes, you should select the Manual mode. In Manual mode, you must answer
every incoming call and activate the machine to receive faxes.
Another device or service at your location may be answering the call before your
Brother machine answers. To test this, lower the ring delay setting:
„ If the answer mode is set to Fax Only or Fax/Tel, reduce the ring delay to
1 ring. (See Ring Delay on page 47.)
„ If the answer mode is set to External TAD, reduce the number of rings
programmed on your answering machine to 2.
„ If the answer mode is set to Manual, do not adjust the ring delay setting.
Have someone send you a test fax:
„ If you received the test fax successfully, your machine is operating properly.
Remember to reset your ring delay or answering machine setting back to your
original setting. If receiving problems recur after resetting the ring delay, then
a person, device, or subscriber service is answering the fax call before the
machine has a chance to answer.
„ If you were not able to receive the fax, then another device or subscriber
service may be interfering with your fax reception or there may be a problem
with your fax line.

Difficulties
Suggestions
Poor sending 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 147.)
Transmission Verification Report
says RESULT:ERROR.
There is probably temporary noise or static on the line. Try sending the fax again.
If you are sending a PC Fax message and get RESULT:ERROR on the
Transmission Verification Report, your machine may be out of memory. To free up
extra memory, you can turn off fax storage (See Turning off Remote Fax Options
on page 69), print fax messages in memory (See Out of Paper Reception
on page 50) or cancel a delayed fax or polling job (See Checking and cancelling
waiting jobs on page 43). 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 Compatibility setting to Basic(for VoIP). (See
Telephone line interference on page 131.)
Vertical black lines when sending.
Black vertical lines on faxes you send are typically caused by dirt or correction fluid
on the glass strip. (See Cleaning the scanner on page 147.)
The machine does not scan all the
pages of your document.
Make sure that the ADF output tray does not contain more than 20 sheets.

Handling incoming calls
C
Difficulties
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 48.)
Sending a Fax Call to the machine.
If you answered on an external or extension telephone, press your Remote
Activation Code (default setting is l51 (l91 for New Zealand)). When your
machine answers, hang up.
Custom features on a single line.
If you have Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, Caller ID, Voice Mail, an
answering machine, 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 line with no custom features is recommended.

Even if the LCD shows Replace Drum, 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
Replace Drum appears), then the drum unit
should be replaced. You should clean the
machine when you replace the drum unit.

The drum unit is a consumable item, and
it is necessary to replace it periodically.
There are many factors that determine the
actual drum life, such as temperature,
humidity, type of paper and how much
toner you use for the number of pages per
print job. The estimated drum life is
approximately 25,000 pages (12,000
pages for India) 1. The actual number of
pages your drum will print may be
significantly less than this estimate.
Because we have no control over the
