Accessory Items back to you.
The foregoing are your sole (i.e., only)
and exclusive remedies under this
warranty.
What happens when Br other elects to
r eplace your Machine:
When a replacement Machine is authorized
by Brother, and you have delivered the
Machine to an Authorized Service Center,
the Authorized Service Center will provide
you with a replacement Machine after
receiving one from Brother. If you are
dealing directly with Brother, Brother will
send to you a replacement Machine with the
understanding that you will, after receipt of
the replacement Machine, supply the
required proof of purchase information,
together with the Machine that Brother
agreed to replace. You are then expected to
pack the Machine that Brother agreed to
replace in the package from the replacement
Machine and return it to Brother using the
pre-paid freight bill supplied by Brother in
accordance with the instructions provided by
Brother. Since you will be in possession of
two machines, Brother will require that you
provide a valid major credit card number.
Brother will issue a hold against the credit
card account number that you provide until
Brother receives your original Product and
determines that your original Product is
entitled to warranty coverage. Your credit
card will be charged up to the cost of a new
Product only if: (i) you do not return your
original Product to Brother within five (5)
business days; (ii) the problems with your
original Product are not covered by the
limited warranty; (iii) the proper packaging
instructions are not followed and has caused
damage to the product; or (iv) the warranty
period on your original Product has expired
or has not been sufficiently validated with a
copy of the proof of purchase (bill of sale).
The replacement Machine you receive (even
if refurbished or remanufactured) will be
covered by the balance of the limited
warranty period remaining on the original
Product, plus an additional thirty (30) days.
You will keep the replacement Machine that
is sent to you and your original Machine shall
become the property of Brother. Retain your
original Accessory Items and a copy of
the return freight bill, signed by the
courier.
Lim itations:
Brother is not responsible for damage to or
loss of any equipment, media, programs or
data related to the use of this Product.
Except for that repair or replacement as
described above, Brother shall not be liable
for any direct, indirect, incidental or
consequential damages or specific relief.
Because some states do not allow the
exclusion or limitation of consequential or
incidental damages, the above limitation
may not apply to you.
THIS WARRANTY IS GIVEN IN LIEU OF
ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WRITTEN OR
ORAL, WHETHER EXPRESSED BY
AFFIRMATION, PROMISE, DESCRIPTION,
DRAWING, MODEL OR SAMPLE. ANY
AND ALL WARRANTIES OTHER THAN
THIS ONE, WHETHER EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED,

WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY
AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR

obligation to you) may not be changed in
any way unless you and Brother sign the

Centers, will repair this MFC/Facsimile machine free of charge if defective in material or
workmanship. This Limited Warranty does not include cleaning, consumables
(including, without limitation, print cartridges, print head, toner and drum) or damage
caused by accident, neglect, misuse or improper installation or operation, any damage
caused from service, maintenance, modifications, or tampering by anyone other than a
Brother Authorized Service Representative, or from the use of supplies or consumable
items that are non-Brother products. Operation of the MFC/Facsimile machine in excess
of the specifications or with the Serial Number or Rating Label removed shall be deemed
abuse and all repairs thereafter shall be the sole liability of the end-user/purchaser. In
order to obtain warranty service, the MFC/Facsimile machine must be delivered or
shipped freight prepaid by the end user/purchaser to a “Brother” Authorized Service
Center, together with your Proof of Purchase in the form of a Sales Receipt.

will VOID the Warranty. (Refer to your Operation Manual for proper packaging.)
For ink-jet products: Do not remove the ink cartridges during shipping. Damage to your
print head resulting from packing without the ink cartridges will VOID your warranty.
(Refer to your Operation Manual for proper packaging.)

to operate properly.
Neither Brother nor anyone else involved in the development, production, or delivery of
this MFC/Facsimile machine shall be liable for any indirect, incidental, special,
consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages, including lost profits, arising from the
use of or inability to use the product, even if advised by the end user/purchaser of the

liability, such limitation may not apply to you.

About fax machines
Custom features
Do you have Voice Mail on the phone line?
If you have Voice Mail on the phone line where you will install your
new MFC, there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail and the MFC
may conflict with each other while receiving incoming calls.
Why should there be problems?
Since both the MFC and Voice Mail will pick up the call, after the
number of rings you have set, each of them has the ability to keep
the other from receiving calls.
For example, if your Voice Mail is set to answer after two rings and
your MFC is set to answer after four, your Voice Mail will stop your
MFC from receiving faxes.
If you set Voice Mail and the Brother MFC to answer after the same
number of rings, there is no way of knowing which one will answer
first. It is important to remember that neither Voice Mail nor the MFC
can pass the call back to the other after the call has been answered.
How can you avoid possible problems?
A very good way to avoid problems like the one mentioned, is to get
a second phone number on your present phone line.
Many people with Voice Mail choose an alternative service, which is
called “Distinctive Ring”, and they are very satisfied with it. (See
Distinctive Ring on page 5-11.)
Another way to avoid possible problems is to replace your Voice Mail
with an answering machine. Your Brother MFC is designed to work
with an answering machine or TAD (telephone answering device).
(See Connecting an external telephone answering device (TAD) on
page 1-16.)
1 - 13 INTRODUCTION
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’ll hear them after you dial and press Start and they will continue
for about 60 seconds after dialing. 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 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 dialed. 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 1-16.)
INTRODUCTION 1 - 14
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, if 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.
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.
Connect the modular plug on the telephone’s line cord to the jack
labeled EXT. in the back of the MFC.
Whenever this phone (or TAD) is in use, the LCD shows
Telephone.
1 - 15 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 doesn’t 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.
If You Subscribe to your Telephone Company’s Distinctive Ring
Service:
You may connect an external TAD to a separate wall jack only
if you subscribe to your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring
service, have registered the distinctive ring pattern on your
MFC, and use that number as a fax number. The recommended
setting is four rings on the external TAD when you have the
telephone company’s Distinctive Ring Service.
If You Do Not Subscribe to Distinctive Ring Service:
You must plug your TAD into the EXT. jack of your MFC. If your
TAD is plugged into a wall jack, both your MFC and the TAD will
try to control the phone line. (See illustration on the next page.)
INTRODUCTION 1 - 16
Do not connect a TAD elsewhere on the same phone line
(unless you have the Distinctive Ring service).
TAD

1 - 17 INTRODUCTION
Connections
The external TAD must be plugged into the back of the MFC, into the
jack labeled EXT. Your MFC cannot work properly if you plug the
TAD into a wall jack (unless you are using Distinctive Ring).
1 Plug the telephone line cord from the wall jack into the back of
the MFC, in the jack labeled LINE.
2 Plug the telephone line cord from your external TAD into the
back of the MFC, in the jack labeled EXT. (Make sure this cord
is connected to the TAD at the TAD’s telephone line jack, and
not its telephone jack.)
3 Set your external TAD to four rings or less. (The MFC’s Ring
Delay setting does not apply.)
4 Record the outgoing message on your external TAD.
5 Set the TAD to answer calls.
6 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 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 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 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 - 18
Special line considerations
Roll-over phone lines
A roll-over phone system is a group of two or more separate
telephone lines that pass incoming calls to each other if they are
busy. The calls are usually passed down or “rolled over” to the next
available phone line in a preset order.
Your MFC can work in a roll-over system as long as it is the last
number in the sequence, so the call cannot roll away. Do not put the
MFC on any of the other numbers; when the other lines are busy and
a second fax call is received, the fax call would be transferred to a
line that does not have a fax machine. Your MFC will work best on
a dedicated line.
Two-line phone system
A two-line phone system is nothing more than two separate phone
numbers on the same wall outlet. The two phone numbers can be on
separate jacks (RJ11) or combined into one jack (RJ14). Your MFC
must be plugged into an RJ11 jack. RJ11 and RJ14 jacks may be
equal in size and appearance and both may contain four wires
(black, red, green, yellow). To test the type of jack, plug in a two-line
phone and see if it can access both lines. If it can, you must separate
the line for your MFC. ( See Easy Receive on page 5-4.)
1 - 19 INTRODUCTION
Converting telephone wall outlets
There are three ways to convert to an RJ11 jack. The first two ways
may require assistance from the telephone company. You can
change the wall outlets from one RJ14 jack to two RJ11 jacks. Or,
you can have an RJ11 wall outlet installed and slave or jump one of
the phone numbers to it.
The third way is the easiest: Buy a triplex adapter. You can plug a
triplex adapter into an RJ14 outlet. It separates the wires into two
separate RJ11 jacks (Line 1, Line 2) and a third RJ14 jack (Lines 1
and 2). If your MFC is on Line 1, plug the MFC into L1 of the triplex
adapter. If your MFC is on Line 2, plug it into L2 of the triple adapter.

INTRODUCTION 1 - 20
Installing MFC, external two-line tad and two-line
telephone
When you are installing an external two-line telephone answering
device (TAD) and a two-line telephone, your MFC must be isolated
on one line at both the wall jack and at the TAD. The most common
connection is to put the MFC on Line 2, which is explained in the
following steps. The back of the two-line TAD must have two
telephone jacks: one labeled L1 or L1/L2, and the other labeled L2.
You will need at least three telephone line cords, the one that came
with your MFC and two for your external two-line TAD. You will need
a fourth line cord if you add a two-line telephone.
1 Place the two-line TAD and the two-line telephone next to your
MFC.
2 Plug one end of the telephone line cord for your MFC into the L2
jack of the triplex adapter. Plug the other end into the LINE jack
on the back of the MFC.
3 Plug one end of the first telephone line cord for your TAD into
the L1 jack of the triplex adapter. Plug the other end into the L1
or L1/L2 jack of the two-line TAD.
4 Plug one end of the second telephone line cord for your TAD
into the L2 jack of the two-line TAD. Plug the other end into the
EXT. jack on the left side of the MFC.

You can keep two-line telephones on other wall outlets as always.
There are two ways to add a two-line telephone to the MFC’s wall
outlet. You can plug the telephone line cord from the two-line
telephone into the L1+L2 jack of the triplex adapter. Or, you can plug
the two-line telephone into the TEL jack of the two-line TAD.
1 - 21 INTRODUCTION
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. You can then leave the Receive Mode set to FAX Only to
receive faxes any time of the day or night.
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.
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 Custom features on page 1-13 and Custom
features on a single line. on page 22-14.)

(automatic receive)
The MFC automatically
answers every call as a
fax.
For dedicated fax lines.
F ax/Te l*
(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 cannot
have an answering machine on the same line, even
if it is on a separate wall jack/phone socket on the
same line. You cannot use the telephone
company’s Voice Mail in this mode.

automatically answers
every call.
Voice messages are

machine on your phone line.
The TAD setting works only with an external
answering machine. Ring Delay and F /T Ring T ime

(manual receive)
You control the phone
line and must answer
every call yourself.
Use this mode w hen you are using a computer
modem on the same line or if you don’t receive
many fax messages or with D istinctive Ring.
If you hear fax tones, wait until the MFC takes over
the call, then hang up. (See Easy Receive on page

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 jack/phone socket) on the same
line as the MFC. (See Operation from extension telephones on page

Easy Receive
When you use this feature, you don’t have to press Start or the Fax
Receive Code 51 when you answer a fax call. Selecting On allows
the MFC 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 wall jack/phone socket, just replace the
handset and your MFC will do the rest. Selecting Off means you’ll
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 5-7.)
If this feature is set to On, but your MFC doesn’t connect a fax
call when you lift a extension or external phone handset, press

Advanced receiving operations
Operation from extension telephones
If you answer a fax call on an extension telephone, or an external
telephone in the EXT. jack, you can make your MFC take the call by
using the Fax Receive Code. When you press the Fax Receive Code
51, the MFC starts to receive a fax.
(See Easy Receive on page 5-4.)
If the MFC 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 5-3.)
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 jack/phone
socket), press 51, wait for fax-receiving tones (chirps), and
then hang up.
■ At an external phone (connected to the MFC’s EXT jack), 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 Hook 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 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 - 7
Using a cordless external handset
If your cordless telephone is connected to the EXT. jack of the MFC
and you typically carry the cordless handset elsewhere, it is easier to
answer calls during the Ring Delay. If you let the MFC answer first,
you will have to go to the MFC so you can press Hook to transfer the
call to the cordless handset.
Changing the remote codes
Remote Codes might not work with some telephone systems. The
preset Fax Receive Code is 51. The preset Telephone Answer

Telephone services
Your MFC supports the Distinctive Ring telephone service that some
telephone companies offer.
If you have Voice Mail, RingMaster, an answering service, an
alarm system or other custom features on your telephone line, it
may affect the way your MFC works. (See Custom features on
page 1-13 and Custom features on a single line. on page 22-14.)
If you have Voice Mail on your phone line, please read the
following carefully.
Distinctive Ring
Brother uses the term ‘Distinctive Ring’ but different telephone
companies have other names for this service such as SmartRing,
RingMaster, Teen-Ring, Indent-a-Call or Indent-a-Ring.
What does your telephone company’s ‘Distinctive Ring’ do?
Your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring service allows you to
have more than one number on the same phone line. If you need
more than one phone number, it is cheaper than paying for an
extra line. Each phone number has its own distinctive ring pattern,
so you will know which phone number is ringing. This is one way you
can have a separate phone number for your MFC.
Please call your telephone company for availability and rates.
What does Brother’s ‘Distinctive Ring’ do?
The Brother MFC has a Distinctive Ring feature that allows you to
use your MFC to take full advantage of the telephone company’s
Distinctive Ring service. The new phone number on your line can just
receive faxes.
You must pay for your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring
service before you program the MFC to work with it.
SETUP RECEIVE 5 - 11
Do you have Voice Mail?
If you have Voice Mail on the phone line that you will install your new
MFC on, there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail and the MFC 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 MFC can work
together without any problems. If each one has a separate phone
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 below to ‘register’ the
new Distinctive Ring pattern they give you. This is so your MFC can
recognize its incoming calls.
You can change or cancel the Distinctive Ring pattern at any
time. You can switch it off temporarily, and turn it back on later.
When you get a new fax number, make sure you reset this
feature.
Before you choose the ring pattern to register
You can only register one Distinctive Ring pattern with the MFC.
Some ring patterns cannot be registered. The ring patterns below are
supported by your Brother MFC. Register the one your telephone
company gives you.

■ The MFC will only answer calls to its registered number.
■ The first two rings are silent on the MFC. This is because the fax
must «listen» to the ring pattern (to compare it to the pattern that
was ‘registered’). (Other telephones on the same line will ring.)
■ If you program the MFC properly, it will recognize the registered
ring pattern of the ‘fax number’ within 2 ring patterns and then
answer with a fax tone. When the ‘voice number’ is called, the
MFC will not answer.
Registering the Distinctive Ring pattern
Very important!
After you have set the Distinctive Ring feature to ON, the receive
mode is set to Manual automatically. Unless you have a TAD or
Voice Mail set up on the Distinctive Ring number, Manual mode
means you must answer all the calls yourself. You can not change
the receive mode to the other mode while the Distinctive Ring is set

Caller ID
The Caller ID feature lets you use the Caller ID subscriber
service offered by many local telephone companies. This
service provides you, by means of the LCD, the name or
telephone number of your caller as the line rings.
After a few rings, the LCD shows the telephone number of your caller
(or name, if available). Once you pick up the handset, the Caller ID
information disappears from the LCD, but the call information
remains stored in the Caller ID memory.
■ You will see the first 16 characters of the number (or name).
■ Out of Area display means call originated outside your Caller
ID service area.
■ Private Call display means the caller has intentionally
blocked transmission of information.
If both the name and number are received, the LCD shows only the

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
dialing sequences by dividing them and setting them up on separate
keys in any combination. You can even include manual dialing using
the dial pad.
The combined number will be dialed 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 dialing 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 dialing pad.
If you must wait for another dial tone or signal at any point in the
dialing sequence, store a pause there in the number by pressing
Redial/Pause. Each key press adds a 3.5-second delay.

Using the Brother MFC-8420,
MFC-8820D or MFC-8820DN printer
driver
A Printer Driver is software that translates data from the format used
by a computer into the format required by a particular printer, using
a printer command language or page description language.
The printer drivers are on the CD-ROM we have supplied. Install the
drivers first by following the Quick Setup Guide. Also, the latest printer
driver can be downloaded from the Brother Solutions Center at:
http://solutions.brother.com
Windows® Printing
The dedicated printer driver and TrueType™ compatible fonts for
Microsoft® Windows ® 95/98/98SE/Me/2000 Professional/XP and
Windows NT® workstation 4.0 are available on the CD-ROM
supplied with your MFC. You can install them easily into your
Windows® system using our installer program. The driver supports
our unique compression mode to enhance printing speed in
Windows® applications, and allows you to set various printer
settings, including economy printing mode and custom paper size.
Popular Printer Emulation Support
The MFC supports HP LaserJet (PCL level 6) and BR-Script 3
(PostScript® 3™ ) printer emulation mode. If you use DOS application
software, you can use HP LaserJet (PCL level 6) and BR-Script 3
(PostScript® 3™ ) emulation mode for printer operations.
USING THE MFC AS A PRINTER 11 - 1
How to print your document
When the MFC receives data from your computer, it begins printing
by picking up paper from the paper tray. The paper tray can feed
many types of paper and envelopes.
1
2
3
From your computer select the Print command.
If your computer is also connected to any other printers, select
Brother MFC-8420 or MFC-8820D (USB) Printer as your
printer driver from the Print or Print Settings menu in your
software application, and then click on OK to begin printing.
Your computer sends a print command and data to the MFC.
The LED blinks in yellow and the MFC starts to print.
You can select the paper size, and orientation in your
application software.
If your application software does not support your custom paper size,
select the next largest paper size.
Then adjust the print area by changing the right and left margins in
your application software.
11 - 2 USING THE MFC AS A PRINTER
Simultaneous printing and faxing
Your MFC can print from your computer while sending or receiving a
fax, and scanning the original into the computer. Fax sending will not
be stopped during PC printing.
Two-sided printing (Duplex Printing)
The supplied printer driver supports duplex printing. (For more
information, see Duplex Printing on page 12-7.)
Automatic Duplex Printing (For MFC-8820D and
MFC-8820DN)
In this mode, the MFC prints on both sides of the A4, Letter or
Legal paper automatically.
1 Open the Properties dialog box in the printer driver.
2 Select Duplex Printing mode in the Advanced tab, make sure
that ‘Use Duplex Unit’ has been selected, and then click the OK
button. (See Duplex Printing on page 12-7.) The printer will print
on both sides of the paper automatically.
■ When you select Use Duplex Unit, HQ1200 is not available.
■ If you also want to use Duplex Printing for fax and copy
operations, see To use Automatic Duplexing for fax, copy
and print operations (For MFC-8820D and MFC-8820DN) on
page 2-10.
USING THE MFC AS A PRINTER 11 - 3
Manual Duplex Printing
The MFC prints all the
even-numbered pages on one
side of the paper first.
Then, the Windows ® driver
instructs you (with a pop-up
message) to reinsert the paper.
Before reinserting the paper,
straighten it well, or you may get
a paper jam. Very thin or very
thick paper is not recommended.
We recommend 75 to 90 g/m 2 (20 to 24 lb) paper.
Face-down output tray
The MFC ejects paper with printed surfaces face down into the
output tray in the front of the MFC. Unfold the support flap to support
the printed pages.
When printing transparencies, remove each one from the
support flap after it exits the MFC.

Using ScanSoft® PaperPort® and
TextBridge® OCR
ScanSoft® PaperPort ® for Brother is a document management
application. You will use PaperPort® to view scanned documents.
PaperPort® has a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, filing system that
will help you organize your graphics and text documents. It allows
you to combine or “stack” documents of different formats for printing,
faxing or filing.
ScanSoft® PaperPort ® can be accessed through the ScanSoft®
PaperPort® program group.
See Documentation for ScanSoft® PaperPort ® on the CD-ROM.
The complete ScanSoft® PaperPort® Users Guide, including
ScanSoft® TextBridge® OCR, is in the documentation on the
CD-ROM.
This chapter is only an introduction to the basic operations.
When you install MFL-Pro Suite, ScanSoft® PaperPort® for Brother
and ScanSoft® TextBridge® OCR are installed with it automatically.
If you are using Windows® XP, Windows NT® 4.0 or Windows ®
2000 Professional, we recommend that you are logged on with
administrator rights.
HOW TO SCAN USING WINDOWS ® 13 - 19
Viewing items
ScanSoft ® PaperPort® provides several ways to view items:
Desktop View displays a thumbnail (a small graphic that represents
each item in a Desktop or folder).
Items in the selected folder appear on the PaperPort® Desktop. You
can see PaperPort® items (MAX files) and non-PaperPort ® items
(files created using other applications).
Non-PaperPort® items include an icon that indicates the application
that was used to create the item; a non-PaperPort® item is represented
by a small rectangular thumbnail and not an actual image.
Desktop View displays items
as thumbnails
Page View displays a close-up of a single page and you can open a
PaperPort ® item by double-clicking on it.
As long as you have the appropriate application on your computer to
display it, you can also double-click a non-PaperPort ® item to open it.
Page View displays each item
as a full page
13 - 20 HOW TO SCAN USING WINDOWS®
Organizing your items in folders
PaperPort® has an easy-to-use filing system for organizing your
items. The filing system consists of folders and items that you select
to view in Desktop View. An item can be a PaperPort® item or a
non-PaperPort® item:
■ Folders are arranged in a “tree” structure in the Folder View.
You use this section to select folders and view their items in
Desktop View.
■ You can simply drag and drop an item onto a folder.
When the folder is highlighted, release the mouse button and the
item is stored in that folder.
■ Folders can be “nested”— that is, stored in other folders.
■ When you double-click a folder, its items (both PaperPort® MAX
files and non paperport® files) appear on the Desktop.
■ You can also use Windows® Explorer to manage the folders
and items shown in Desktop View.
Quick links to other applications
ScanSoft® PaperPort ® automatically recognizes many other
applications on your computer and creates a “working link” to them.
The Send To Bar at the bottom of the Desktop view shows icons of
those linked applications.
To use a link, drag an item onto one of the icons to start the
application represented by the icon. A typical use of the Send To Bar
is to select an item and then fax it.
This sample Send To Bar shows several applications with links to
PaperPort® .
If PaperPort® does not automatically recognize one of the
applications on your computer, you can manually create a link using
the Add to Send To Bar... command.
(See PaperPort® in the Documentation section on the CD-ROM for
more information about creating new links.)

ScanSoft® TextBridge® OCR lets you convert
image text into text you can edit
Software by:
ScanSoft ® TextBridge® OCR is installed automatically with
PaperPort ® when you install MFL-Pro Suite on your computer.
ScanSoft ® PaperPort® can quickly convert the text on a ScanSoft®
PaperPort ® item (which is really just a picture of the text) into text that
you can edit with a word processing application.
PaperPort ® uses the optical character recognition application
ScanSoft ® TextBridge®, which comes with PaperPort®
— OR—
PaperPort ® can use your preferred OCR application if it is already on
your computer. You can convert the entire item, or by using the Copy
Text command, you can select only a portion of the text to convert.
Dragging an item onto a word-processing link icon starts
PaperPort ® ’s built-in OCR application, or you can use your own
OCR application.
You can Import items from other applications
In addition to scanning items, you can bring items into PaperPort ® in
a variety of ways and convert them to PaperPort ® (MAX) files in
several different ways:
■ Print to the Desktop View from another application, such as
Microsoft ® Excel.
■ Import files saved in other file formats, such as Windows ® Bitmap
(BMP) or Tag Image File Format (TIFF).
13 - 22 HOW TO SCAN USING WINDOWS®
You can Export items in other formats
You can export or save PaperPort® items in several popular file
formats, such as BMP, JPEG, TIFF, or self-viewing.
For example, to create a file for an Internet Web site, export it as a
JPEG file. Web pages often use JPEG files for displaying images.

Color Type
Black & White—Set the image Type to Black and White for text or
line art. For photographic images, set the image type to Gray (Error
diffusion) or True Gray.
Gray (Error Diffusion)—is used for documents with photographic
images or graphics. (Error Diffusion is a method for creating
simulated gray images by placing black dots instead of the true gray
dots in a specific matrix instead of true gray dots.)
True Gray—is used for documents with photographic images or
graphics. This mode is more exact because it uses up to 256 shades
of gray. It requires the most memory and takes the longest transfer
time.
Colors—Choose either 8-bit Color, which scans up to 8-bit Color or
24-bit Color which scans up to 16.8 million colors. Although using
24-bit Color creates an image with the most accurate colors, the
image file will be about three times larger than a file created with 8-bit
Color.

Adjusting the Image
Brightness
Adjust the Brightness setting to get the best image. The Brother
TWAIN Scanner driver offers 100 Brightness levels (-50 to 50). The
default value is 0, representing an ‘average’ setting.
You can set the Brightness level by dragging the slide bar to the
right to lighten the image or to the left to darken the image. You can
also type a value in the box to set the level. Click OK.
If the scanned image is too light, set a lower Brightness level and
scan the image again.
If the image is too dark, set a higher Brightness level and scan the
image again.
Contrast
You can only adjust the Contrast level when you have selected one
of the Gray Scale settings, it is not available when you have selected
Black & White as the selected Color Type.
Increasing the Contrast level (by dragging the slide bar to the right)
emphasizes dark and light areas of the image, while reducing the
Contrast level (by dragging the slide bar to the left) reveals more
detail in the gray areas. Instead of using the slide bar, you can type
a value in the box to set the Contrast. Click OK.

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.
DIF FICULT Y
SUGGEST IONS
Printin g 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 problem, call Brother Customer Service at
1-800-284-4329 (in USA), 1-877-BROTHER (in Canada) or (514)
685-6464 (in Montreal).
Poor quality print.
See Improving the print quality on page 22-18.
Vertical black lines when
receiving.
Sometimes you may see vertical streaks/black lines on the faxes you
receive. Your MF C’s primary corona wire for printing may be dirty, or the
sending party’s fax scanner may be dirty. Clean your primary corona
w ire (See Cleaning the drum unit on page 22-27), or 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
Brother Customer Service at
1-800-284-4329 (In USA), 1-877-BR OTHER (In Can ad a) or
(514) 685-6464 (In Montreal).
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, your Paper Size setting may not be correct for the
paper you are using (See Type and size of paper on page 2-1 ). Make
sure that auto reduction function setting is turned on. (See Printing a
reduced incoming fax (Auto R eduction) on page 5-5.)
Pho ne Line or Con nections
Dialing does not w ork
C heck for a dial tone. Change Tone/ Pulse setting. (See Setting Tone
and Pulse dialing mode (For Canada only) on page 4-4.) Check all line
cord connections. Check power cord connection. Send a manual fax by
pressing Ho ok, or by lifting the external handset and dialing the number.
Wait to hear fax receiving tones before pressing Start.
T he MF C does not answer
when called.
Make sure the MFC is in the correct receiving mode for your setup. (See
Basic sending operations on page 6-6.) 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 w hen you
call your MF C, ask your telephone company to check the line.
Send in g Faxes
Poor sending quality.
T ry changing your resolution to Fine or S.Fi ne. 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 22-25.)
T ransmission Verification
Report says ‘RESULT:NG’ or
‘RESULT :ERROR’.
T here 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.
T o gain extra memory, you can turn off F ax Storage (See Setting Fax
Storage on page 8-3 ), print fax messages in memory (See Polling on
page 5-9) or cancel a Delayed F ax or Polling Job (See C anceling a job
w hile scanning the original on page 6-11). If the problem continues, ask
the telephone company to check your phone line.

DIFFICUL TY
SU GGESTIONS
Vertical black lines when
sending.
If the copy you made shows the same problem, your scanner is dirty.
(See Cleaning the scanner on page 22-25.)
Handling Incoming Calls
MFC ‘Hears’ Voice as CNG
Tone.
If your MFC is set to Easy Receive ON, it is more sensitive to sounds.
Your MF C 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. T ry avoiding this problem by
turning Easy Receive to OFF . (See Easy Receive on page 5-4 .)
Sending a Fax Call to the
MFC.
If you answered at the MF C, press Start and hang up immediately. If
you answered on an external or extension phone, press your F ax
Receive 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 , 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.
For Exam ple: Your Brother MF C handles the Caller ID subscriber
services. However, if you subscribe to Call Waiting or some other
custom service and its signal comes through the line while your MFC is
sending or receiving a fax, 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 information on a single,
shared line with custom features. If avoiding a slight interruption is
crucial to your business, a separate line w ith no custom features is
recommended.
Men u Setting Difficulties
The MFC beeps when you try
to access the Setup Receive
and Setup Send menus.
Make sure that MFC is in F ax mode. If the Fax
key is not
illuminated, press it to turn on Fax mode. Setup Receive setting (Men u,
2, 1) and Setup Send setting (Men u, 2, 2) are available only when the
MFC is in F ax mode.
Copy Quality Difficu lties
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.

The MFC can print up to 6,500 pages using a high yield toner
cartridge. When the toner cartridge is running low, the LCD shows
Toner Low. The MFC is supplied with a standard toner cartridge
that must be replaced after approximately 3,300 pages. Actual page
count will vary depending on your average type of original (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.

period of time, the toner life is shortened.
■ Brother strongly recommends that you do not refill the toner
cartridge provided with your MFC. We also strongly recommend
that you continue to use only Genuine Brother Brand
replacement toner cartridges (TN-530 or TN-560). Using or
attempting to use potentially incompatible toner and/or toner
cartridges in your MFC may cause damage to the machine itself
and/or it may result in unsatisfactory print quality. Our warranty

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.
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 22-27.)
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.
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 up to 20,000 pages. The
actual number of pages your drum will print may be significantly
less than these estimates. Because we have no control over the
many factors that determine the actual drum life, we cannot
guarantee a minimum number of pages that will be printed by
your drum.
WARNING
Just after you have used the MFC, some internal parts of the MFC
are extremely HOT! So please be careful.
