Acceptable paper and
other print media
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.
You can use plain paper, inkjet paper (coated
paper), glossy paper, transparencies and
envelopes.
We recommend testing various paper types
before buying large quantities.
For best results, use Brother paper.
 When you print on inkjet paper (coated
paper), transparencies and glossy paper,
be sure to choose the correct print media
in the printer driver’s Basic tab or the
machine’s Paper Type setting.
(See Paper Type on page 18.)
 When you print on Brother Photo paper,
load one extra sheet of the same photo
paper in the paper tray. An extra sheet has
been included in the paper package for
this purpose.
 When using transparencies or photo
paper, remove each sheet at once to
prevent smudging or paper jams.
 Avoid touching the printed surface of the
paper immediately after printing; the
surface may not be completely dry and
may stain your fingers.
Recommended print media

To get the best print quality, we suggest using
the Brother paper in the table.

 Store paper in its original packaging and
keep it sealed. Keep the paper flat and
away from moisture, direct sunlight and
heat.
 Avoid touching the shiny (coated) side of
the photo paper.
 Avoid touching either side of the
transparency paper because they absorb
water and perspiration easily, and this
may cause decreased output quality.
Transparencies designed for laser
printers/copiers may stain your next

recommended for inkjet printing.

Receiving a fax
Receive Modes
Choose the correct Receive Mode
The correct Receive Mode is determined by the external devices and telephone subscriber
services (Voice Mail, Distinctive Ring, etc.) you will be using on the same line as the Brother
machine.
Will you be using a Distinctive Ring number for receiving faxes?
Brother uses the term “Distinctive Ring” but different telephone companies may have other names for this
service, such as Custom Ringing, RingMaster, Personalized Ring, Teen Ring, Ident-A-Ring, Ident-A-Call,
Data Ident-A-Call, Smart Ring and SimpleBiz Fax & Alternate Number Ringing. (See Distinctive Ring
on page 34 for instructions on setting up your machine using this feature.)
Will you be using Voice Mail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine?
If you have Voice Mail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine, there is a strong possibility
that Voice Mail and the Brother machine will conflict with each other when receiving incoming calls.
(See Voice Mail on page 33 for instructions on setting up your machine using this service.)
Will you be using a Telephone Answering Device on the same telephone line as your Brother
machine?
Your external telephone answering device (TAD) will automatically answer every call. Voice messages are
stored on the external TAD and fax messages are printed. Choose External TAD as your Receive Mode.
(See Connecting an external TAD (telephone answering device) on page 37.)
Will you be using your Brother machine on a dedicated fax line?
Your machine automatically answers every call as a fax. Choose Fax Only as your Receive Mode.
(See Fax Only on page 30.)
Will you be using your Brother machine on the same line as your telephone?
Do you want to receive voice calls and faxes automatically?
Fax/Tel mode is used when sharing the Brother machine and your telephone on the same line.
Choose Fax/Tel as your Receive Mode. (See Fax/Tel on page 30.)
Important Note: You cannot receive voice messages on either Voice Mail or an answering machine
with Fax/Tel mode.
Do you expect to receive very few faxes?
Choose Manual as your Receive Mode. You control the telephone line and must answer every call
yourself. (See Manual on page 30.)

Fax Only mode will automatically answer
every call as a fax call.
Fax/Tel
Fax/Tel mode helps you manage incoming
calls by recognizing whether they are fax or
voice calls and handling them in one of the
following ways:
 Faxes will be automatically received.
 Voice calls will start the F/T Ring to tell you
to pick up the line. The F/T Ring is a fast
pseudo/double-ring made by your
machine.
If you use Fax/Tel mode, see F/T Ring Time
(Fax/Tel mode only) on page 31 and Ring

When somebody calls your machine, you and
your caller will hear the normal telephone
ring. 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
pseudo/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 by using a remote code.

Your machine supports the Caller ID and
Distinctive Ring subscriber telephone
services that some telephone companies
offer.
If you have Voice Mail on the same telephone
line as your Brother machine, Voice Mail and
the Brother machine will conflict with each
other when receiving incoming calls.
For example, if your Voice Mail is set to
answer after 4 rings and your Brother
machine is set to answer after 2 rings, then
your Brother machine will answer first. This
will prevent callers from being able to leave a
message in your Voice Mail.
Similarly, if your Brother machine is set to
answer after 4 rings and your Voice Mail is set
to answer after 2 rings, then your Voice Mail
will answer first. This will prevent your Brother
machine from being able to receive an
incoming fax, since Voice Mail cannot
transfer the incoming fax back to the Brother
machine.
To avoid conflicts between your Brother
machine and your Voice Mail service, do one
of the following:
Get the Distinctive Ring service from your
telephone company. Distinctive Ring is a
feature of your Brother machine that allows a
person with one line to receive fax and voice
calls through two different phone numbers on
that one line.
Features like Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Call
Waiting/Caller ID, RingMaster, answering
services, alarm systems or other custom
features on one telephone line may create
problems with the operation of your machine.
If you have Voice Mail on your telephone line,
read the following carefully.
Voice Mail

Brother uses the term “Distinctive Ring,” but
telephone companies market the service
under a variety of names, such as Custom
Ringing, Personalized Ring, Smart Ring,
RingMaster, Ident-A-Ring, Ident-A-Call, Data
Ident-A-Call, Teen Ring, and SimpleBiz Fax
& Alternate Number Ringing. This service
establishes a second telephone number on
the same line as your existing telephone
number, and each number has its own ring
pattern. Typically, the original number rings
with the standard ring pattern and is used for
receiving voice calls, and the second number
rings with a different ring pattern and is used
for receiving faxes. (See Distinctive Ring
on page 34.)
OR
Set your Brother machine’s Receive Mode to
Manual. Manual mode requires that you
answer every incoming call if you want to be
able to receive a fax. If the incoming call is a
telephone call, then complete the call as you
normally would. If you hear fax-sending
tones, you must transfer the call to the
Brother machine. (See Using external and
extension telephones on page 40.)
Unanswered fax and voice calls will go to
your Voice Mail. (To set the machine in
Manual mode, see Choose the correct
Receive Mode on page 28.)

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.
Distinctive Ring is a function of your Brother
machine that allows a person with one line to
receive fax and voice calls through two
different phone numbers on that one line.
Brother uses the term “Distinctive Ring,” but
telephone companies market the service
under a variety of names, such as Smart
Ring, Ring Master or Ident-a-Ring. This
service establishes a second telephone
number on the same line as your existing
telephone number, and each number has its
own ring pattern. Typically, the original
number rings with the standard ring pattern
and is used for receiving voice calls, and the
second number rings with a different ring
pattern and is used for receiving faxes.
If you decide to get Distinctive Ring service
from the telephone company, you will need to
follow the directions in Registering the
Distinctive Ring pattern to register the new
Distinctive Ring pattern they give you. This is
so your machine can recognize its incoming
calls.
NOTE
• You must pay for your telephone
company's Distinctive Ring service before
you program the machine to work with it.
NOTE
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.
• Please call your telephone company for
availability and rates.
What does your telephone company's
“Distinctive Ring” do?
6
Your telephone company's Distinctive Ring
service allows you to have more than one
number on the same telephone line. If you
need more than one telephone number, it
is cheaper than paying for an extra line.
Each telephone number has its own
distinctive ring pattern, so you will know
which telephone number is ringing. This is
one way you can have a separate telephone
number for your machine.
What does Brother's “Distinctive
Ring” do?
The Brother machine has a Distinctive Ring
feature that allows you to use your machine to
take full advantage of the telephone
company's Distinctive Ring service. The new
telephone number on your line can just
receive faxes.

Before you choose the ring pattern to
register
You can only register one Distinctive Ring
pattern with the machine. Some ring patterns
cannot be registered. The ring patterns in the

Voice over Internet Protocol
(VoIP)
6
VoIP is a type of phone system that uses an
Internet connection instead of a traditional
telephone line. Telephone providers
frequently bundle VoIP together with Internet
and cable services.
Your machine may not work with some VoIP
systems. If you want to use your machine to
send and receive faxes on a VoIP system,
make sure that one end of your telephone
cord is connected to the jack labeled LINE on
your machine. The other end of the telephone
cord may be connected to a modem,
interface box, phone adapter, splitter, or other
such device.
 If you have questions about how to
connect your machine to the VoIP
system, call your VoIP provider.
After you have connected your machine to
the VoIP system, press Hook on the
Touchscreen to verify that the machine has a
dial tone. If the machine does not have a dial
tone, call your VoIP provider.
If you are having problems sending or
receiving faxes over a VoIP system, we
recommend changing the machine’s modem
speed to the Basic(for VoIP) setting
(see Telephone line interference / VoIP
on page 92).

Telephone services and external devices
Connecting an external
TAD (telephone
answering device)
• If you do not subscribe to the
Distinctive Ring service:
You must plug your TAD into the EXT.
jack of your machine. If your TAD is
plugged into a wall jack, both your
machine and the TAD will try to control the
telephone line. (See the illustration.)
6
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.
• 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 machine,
and use that number as a fax number. The
recommended setting is at least four rings
on the external TAD when you have the
telephone company's Distinctive Ring
service. You cannot use the Toll Saver
setting.
• Before you connect the external TAD,
remove the protective cap (2) from the
EXT. jack on the machine.

Timing is important in recording this
message. The way you record this message
will affect 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
c
Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.

your Fax Receive Code for people
sending manual faxes. For example:
“After the beep, leave a message or
send a fax by pressing l 5 1 and Start.”
NOTE
d
38
Carefully guide the telephone line cord
from the EXT. jack into the cable
channel and out the back of the
machine.
6
We recommend beginning your OGM with
an initial 5-second silence because the
machine cannot hear fax tones over a
resonant or loud voice. You may try
omitting this pause, but if your machine
has trouble receiving, then you must
re-record the OGM to include it.
Telephone services and external devices
Multi-line connections (PBX)
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 correctly 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.

Routine maintenance
Replacing the ink
cartridges
Your machine is equipped with an ink dot
counter. The ink dot counter monitors the
level of ink in each of the four cartridges.
When the machine detects an ink cartridge is
running out of ink, the machine will display a
message.
The Touchscreen will show which ink
cartridge is low or needs replacing. Be sure to
follow the Touchscreen prompts to replace
the ink cartridges in the correct order.
Even though the machine tells you to replace
an ink cartridge, 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.
CAUTION
A
IMPORTANT
A
Brother strongly recommends that you do
not refill the ink cartridges provided with
your machine. We also strongly
recommend that you continue to use only
Genuine Brother Brand replacement ink
cartridges. Use or attempted use of
potentially incompatible ink and/or
cartridges in the Brother machine may
cause damage to the machine and/or may
result in unsatisfactory print quality. Our
warranty coverage does not apply to any
problem that is caused by the use of
unauthorized third-party ink and/or
cartridges. To protect your investment and
obtain premium performance from the
Brother machine, we strongly recommend
the use of Genuine Brother Supplies.
a
Open the ink cartridge cover (1).
If an ink cartridge has reached the end
of its life, the Touchscreen shows
B&W Print Only or Cannot Print.
If ink gets in your eyes, wash it out with
water at once and call a doctor if you are
concerned.
A

b
Press the lock release lever as shown to
release the cartridge color indicated on
the Touchscreen. Remove the cartridge

vacuum seal. Then remove the orange
protective packing as shown.

c
Open the new ink cartridge bag for the
color indicated on the Touchscreen, and
then take out the ink cartridge.
IMPORTANT
• DO NOT shake the ink cartridges. If ink
gets on your skin or clothing, immediately
wash it off with soap or detergent.
• DO NOT touch the cartridge in the area
indicated (2); this can prevent the
machine from detecting the cartridge.
56
Routine maintenance
e
f
Each color has its own correct position.
Insert the ink cartridge in the direction of
the arrow on the label.
Gently push the back of the ink
cartridge—marked PUSH—until it
latches, and then close the ink cartridge
cover.
NOTE
• If you replaced an ink cartridge, for
example Black, the Touchscreen may ask
you to verify that it is a brand new one (for
example, Did You Change
Black).
For each new cartridge you installed,
press Yes to reset the ink dot counter for
that color. If the ink cartridge you installed
is not a brand new one, be sure to press
No.
• If the Touchscreen shows
No Ink Cartridge or
Cannot Detect after you install the ink
cartridge, check that the ink cartridge is
installed correctly. Remove the ink
cartridge and reinstall it slowly and firmly
until it latches.
IMPORTANT
• 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.
g
The machine will automatically reset the
ink dot counter.
• If you mix the colors by installing an ink
cartridge in the wrong position, the
Touchscreen shows Wrong Ink Color.
Check which ink cartridges are not
matched by color to their ink cartridge
positions and move them to their correct
positions.
• 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.

Error Message
Cause
Action
Ink Absorber Full
The ink absorber box or flushing box
is full. These components are
periodic maintenance items that may
require replacement after a period of
time to ensure optimum performance
from your Brother machine. Because
these components are periodic
maintenance items, the replacement
is not covered under the warranty.
The need to replace these items and
the time period before replacement is
dependent on the number of purges
and flushes required to clean the ink
system. These boxes acquire
amounts of ink during the different
purging and flushing operations. The
number of times a machine purges
and flushes for cleaning varies
depending on different situations. For
example, frequently powering the
machine on and off will cause
numerous cleaning cycles since the
machine automatically cleans itself
upon power up. The use of
non-Brother ink may cause frequent
cleanings because non-Brother ink
could cause poor print quality, which
is resolved by cleaning. The more
cleaning the machine requires, the
faster these boxes will fill up.
The ink absorber box or flushing box
will need to be replaced. Call Brother
Customer Service or a Brother
Authorized Service Center to have
your machine serviced. (See Brother
numbers on page i.)

After a paper jam has been
cleared, the machine
automatically cleans itself before
the next received fax is printed.

Printing Received Faxes
Difficulty
 Condensed print
 Horizontal streaks
Suggestions
Usually this is caused by a poor telephone connection. Make a copy; if your copy
looks good, you probably had a bad connection, with static or interference on the
telephone line. Ask the other party to send the fax again.
 Top and bottom sentences are
cut off
 Missing lines
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.
Left and right margins are cut off or
a single page is printed on two
pages.
If the received faxes are divided and printed on two pages or if you get an extra
blank page, your Paper Size setting may not be correct for the paper you are
using.
(See Paper Size on page 18.)
Turn on Auto Reduction. (See Advanced User’s Guide: Printing a reduced

fax-receiving tones before pressing Fax Start.
If there is no dial tone, connect a known-working telephone and telephone line
cord to the jack. Then lift the external telephone's handset and listen for a dial tone.
If there is still no dial tone, ask your telephone company to check the line and/or
wall jack.
The machine does not answer
when called.
86
Make sure the machine is in the correct Receive Mode for your setup.

static or interference on your fax line, call your local telephone provider.
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into
the telephone wall jack and the LINE jack inside the machine. If you subscribe to
DSL, VoIP or MagicJack services, call your service provider for connection
instructions. To lower the modem speed and turn off ECM (error correction mode),
see Telephone line interference / VoIP on page 92.
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 Choose the correct Receive Mode on page 28.)
If you have a dedicated fax line and want your Brother machine to automatically
answer all incoming faxes, select Fax Only mode.
If your Brother machine shares a line with an external answering machine, select
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 the line with a Voice Mail subscriber service, see
Voice Mail on page 33.
If your Brother machine is on a line with the Distinctive Ring subscriber service,
see Distinctive Ring on page 34.
If your Brother machine shares a line with other telephones and you want it to
automatically answer all incoming faxes, select 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 incoming faxes,
select 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 Receive Mode is set to Fax Only or Fax/Tel, reduce the Ring Delay
to 1 ring. (See Ring Delay on page 31.)
B
 If the Receive Mode is set to External TAD, reduce the number of rings
programmed on your answering machine to 2.
 If the Receive 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 correctly.
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.

Receiving Faxes (continued)
Difficulty
Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
If you are using a telephone answering machine (External TAD mode) on the
same line as the Brother machine, make sure your answering machine is set up
correctly. (See Connecting an external TAD (telephone answering device)
on page 37.)
(continued)
1
Plug the telephone line cord directly from the wall telephone jack to your
Brother machine’s LINE jack.
2
Remove the protective cap from your Brother machine’s EXT. jack, and then
plug the telephone line cord from your answering machine into the EXT. jack.
3
Set your answering machine to answer within 4 rings.
If you are having problems receiving faxes or voice messages, set your
answering machine to answer within 2 or 3 rings.
4
Record the outgoing message on your answering machine.
 Record five seconds of silence at the beginning of your outgoing
message.
 Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
 End your outgoing message with your Fax Receive Code for people
sending manual faxes. For example: “After the beep, leave a message or
press l 5 1 and Start to send a fax.”
5
Set your answering machine to answer calls.
6
Set your Brother machine’s Receive Mode to External TAD. (See Choose
the correct Receive Mode on page 28.)
Make sure your Brother machine’s Easy Receive feature is set to On. Easy
Receive is a feature that allows you to receive a fax even if you have answered
the call on an external or extension telephone. (See Easy Receive on page 32.)
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 / VoIP on page 92.)
Sending Faxes
Difficulty
Suggestions
Cannot send a fax.
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into
the telephone wall jack and the LINE jack inside the machine.
Print the Transmission Verification Report and check for an error. (See Advanced
User’s Guide: Reports.)
Ask the other party to check that the receiving machine has paper.
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 58.)
Transmission Verification Report
shows RESULT:NG.
There is probably temporary noise or static on the line. Try sending the fax again.
If you send a PC FAX message and see “RESULT:NG” on the Transmission
Verification Report, your machine may be out of memory. 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 machine's Compatibility setting to Basic(for VoIP).
(See Telephone line interference / VoIP on page 92.)
Sent faxes are blank.

Make sure you are loading the document correctly. (See Loading documents
on page 23.)
Troubleshooting
Handling Incoming Calls
Difficulty
Suggestions
The machine “hears” a voice as a
CNG Tone.
If Easy Receive 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
.
Try avoiding this problem by turning Easy Receive to Off.
(See Easy Receive on page 32.)
Sending a fax call to the machine.
If you answered on an extension telephone, press your Fax Receive Code (the
factory setting is l 5 1). If you answered on the external telephone (connected to
the EXT. jack), press Fax Start, and then press Receive to receive the fax.
When your machine 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
telephone line with your machine, it may create a problem sending or receiving
faxes.
For example: If you subscribe to Call Waiting or another 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 (Error
Correction Mode) 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, we recommend using a separate
telephone line with no custom features.
Copying Difficulties
Difficulty
Suggestions
Black marks or spots appear in
copies.
Black marks or spots on copies are typically caused by dirt or correction fluid on
the scanner glass. Clean the scanner glass and white plastic above it. (See
Cleaning the scanner on page 58.)
Copies are blank.
Make sure you are loading the document correctly. (See Loading documents
