 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 printing on to transparencies, load
one extra sheet in the paper tray.
 When you use 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.

 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
photo paper. Load photo paper with the
shiny side facing down.
 Avoid touching either side of
transparencies because they absorb
water and perspiration easily, and this
may cause decreased output quality.
Transparencies designed for laser
printers/copiers may stain your next

DO NOT use the following kinds of paper:
• Damaged, curled, wrinkled, or
irregularly shaped paper

If you have Voice Mail on the phone 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 phone number, neither will
interfere with the other’s operations.
If you decide to get the Distinctive Ring

Telephone Service

 To get the Caller ID service, you have
to apply for it at your local telephone
company.
The caller ID feature of this machine lets you
use the caller ID subscriber service offered by
certain telephone companies.
Caller ID (Caller IDentification)
(not available in certain area)
The Caller ID is a telephone service that
allows the subscriber to see a display of the
caller's phone number as the telephone rings.
It is a fast way to screen your calls. You can
respond quickly to calls you missed, because
caller IDs are received and stored in your fax
machine memory. Besides the standard
Caller ID feature, you can also select a single
caller's phone number and call back.
Note
6
 FSK and DTMF are the two modes for
displaying your calls.
Please ask your local telephone
company for whether your mode is
FSK or DTMF.
If your local telephone company uses
DTMF mode, please switch your mode
as follows. Contact your local
telephone company or Brother dealer
in the case that the feature does not
work normally.
Caller ID feature is not available in the
following situation:
1 You have not applied for it at your local
telephone company.
2 The fax machine is connected to an
internal switchboard or other switch
device.
3 Due to the switchboard problems or

companies, the feature may not work
in some areas.

Connecting an external
TAD (telephone
answering device)
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 two 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.

If you do not receive all your faxes,
shorten the Ring Delay setting on your

When you are using a telephone on the same

While it is often relatively simple to connect a

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

cause some functions of the fax machine not
to work correctly.

Operation from external and
extension telephones
Using remote codes

Remote Activation Code
If you answer a fax call on an extension or an
external telephone, you can make your
machine take the call by using the Remote
Activation Code. When you press the Remote
Activation Code l 5 1, the machine starts to
receive the fax.
If you answer a fax call at the external
telephone, you can make the machine
receive the fax by pressing Mono Start and 2
to choose Receive when you select the
Fax Mode to Advanced Mode. (See Setting
the Fax Logic (sending and receiving
sequence) uu page 11.)

You should assume that you're receiving a
manual fax.
Remote Deactivation Code
If you receive a voice call and the machine is
in Fax/Tel mode, it will start to sound the F/T
Ring (fast double-ring), after the initial Ring
Delay. If you pick up the call on an extension
telephone you can turn the F/T Ring off by
pressing # 5 1 (make sure you press this
between the rings).
Press l 5 1 and wait for the chirp or until the
LCD shows Receiving, and then hang up.
Note
You can also use the Fax Detect feature to
make your machine automatically take the
call. (See Fax Detect uu page 32.)
Using a cordless external
telephone
Once the base unit of the cordless telephone
has been connected to the same telephone
line as the machine (see External and
extension telephones uu page 37), it is
easier to answer calls during the Ring Delay
if you carry the cordless handset around with
you.
If you let the machine answer first, you will
have to go to the machine and press Hook to
send the call to the cordless handset.
38

If you answer a fax call on an extension or
external telephone, you can tell your machine
to receive it by dialling the Remote Activation
Code l 5 1. Wait for the chirping sounds then
replace the handset. (See Fax Detect
uu page 32.)
If the machine answers a voice call and fast
double-rings for you to take over, use the
Remote Deactivation Code # 5 1 to take the
call at an extension telephone. (See F/T Ring
Time (Fax/Tel mode only) uu page 31.)

Routine maintenance
Replacing the ink
cartridges
Your machine is equipped with an ink dot
counter. The ink dot counter automatically
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 on the LCD.
Note
For example, when one of the ink
cartridges is nearly empty, the LCD will
display Ink low (name of color).
You should purchase a replacement
cartridge in preparation for when the
machine indicates the color is completely
empty.
When one of the ink cartridges is empty,
the LCD will display Cannot Print or
B&W Print Only.
You should only replace the actual ink
cartridge when this message
Cannot Print or B&W Print Only
appears on the LCD.
The LCD will show which ink cartridge is low
or needs replacing. Be sure to follow the LCD
prompts to replace the ink cartridges in the
correct order.
Even though the machine tells you 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
If ink gets in your eyes, wash it out with
water at once and call a doctor if you are
concerned.
50
IMPORTANT
A
Brother multifunction machines are
designed to work with ink of a particular
specification and will work to a level of
optimum performance and reliability when
used with Brother Original ink cartridges.
Brother cannot guarantee this optimum
performance and reliability if ink or ink
cartridges of other specifications are
used. Brother does not therefore
recommend the use of cartridges other
than Brother Original cartridges or the
refilling of used cartridges with ink from
other sources. If damage is caused to the
print head or other parts of this machine
as a result of using incompatible products
with this machine, any repairs required as
a result may not be covered by the
warranty.
a
Open the ink cartridge cover.
If one or more of the ink cartridges have
reached the end of their life, the LCD
shows B&W Print Only or
Cannot Print.
A
Routine maintenance
b
Press the lock release lever as shown to
release the cartridge indicated on the

᥼
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.
• If ink gets on your skin or clothing
immediately wash it off with soap or
detergent.
g
The machine will automatically reset the
ink dot counter.
Note
• If you replaced an ink cartridge, for
example Black, the LCD may ask you to
verify that it was a brand new one (for
example, Did You Change
Black).
For each new cartridge you installed,
press 1 (Yes) to automatically reset the
ink dot counter for that color. If the ink
cartridge you installed is not a brand new
one, be sure to press 2 (No).
• If the LCD shows No Ink Cartridge or
Cannot Detect after you install the ink
cartridges, check that the ink cartridges
are brand new Original Brother and that
they are installed correctly.
52
• If you mix the colors by installing an ink
cartridge in the wrong position, clean the
print head several times after correcting
the cartridge installation.
• 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.

Cleaning the print head
To maintain good print quality, the machine
will automatically clean the print head when
needed. You can start the cleaning process
manually if there is a print quality problem.
Clean the print head if you get a horizontal
line in the text or graphics, or blank text on
your printed pages. You can clean Black only,
three colors at a time
(Yellow/Cyan/Magenta), or all four colors at
once.
Cleaning the print head consumes ink.
Cleaning too often uses ink unnecessarily.

DO NOT touch the print head. Touching
the print head may cause permanent
damage and may void the print head's
warranty.

Error and Maintenance messages
As with any sophisticated office product, errors may occur and consumable items may need to be
replaced. If this happens, your machine identifies the error and shows an error message. The
most common error and maintenance messages are shown in the following table.
You can correct most errors and routine maintenance by yourself. If you need more help, the
Brother Solutions Center offers the latest FAQs and troubleshooting tips.
Visit us at http://solutions.brother.com/.
Error Message

B&W Print Only
One or more of the color ink cartridges
have reached the end of their life.
Replace the ink cartridges. (See
Replacing the ink cartridges
uu page 50.)
Replace Ink
You can use the machine in
monochrome mode for approximately
four weeks depending on the number
of pages you print.
While this message appears on the
LCD, each operation works in the
following way:
 Printing
If you choose Greyscale in the
Advanced tab of the printer driver
you can use the machine as a
monochrome printer.
 Copying
If the paper type is set to
Plain Paper you can make
copies in monochrome.
 Faxing
If the paper type is set to
Plain Paper or
Inkjet Paper, the machine will
receive and print the faxes in
monochrome.
If a sending machine has a color
fax, the machine’s “handshake”
will ask that the fax be sent as
monochrome.
If the paper type is set to
Other Glossy, Brother BP71 or
Brother BP61 the machine will stop
all print operations.

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 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. Contact
Brother Customer Service or your
local Brother Authorised Service
Centre to have your machine serviced.
Other reasons for cleaning are:
1
After a paper jam has been
cleared, the machine automatically
cleans itself before the next
received fax is printed.
2
The machine automatically cleans
itself after sitting idle for more than
30 days (infrequent use).
3
The machine automatically cleans
itself after the ink cartridges for
each color have been replaced
12 times.
Note
Repairs resulting from the use of
non-Brother supplies may not be
covered under the stated product
warranty.

One or more of the ink cartridges are
near the end of their life. If a sending
machine has a color fax to send, your
machine’s “handshake” will ask that
the fax be sent as monochrome. If the
sending machine has the ability to
convert it, the color fax will be printed
at your machine as a monochrome
fax.
Order a new ink cartridge. You can
continue printing until the LCD shows

You probably had a bad connection, with static or interference on the telephone
line. Ask the other party to send the fax again.
Vertical black lines when receiving.
The sender's scanner may be dirty. Ask the sender to make a copy to see if the
problem is with the sending machine. Try receiving from another fax machine.
Received color fax prints only in
black and white.
Replace the color ink cartridges that have reached the end of their life, and then
ask the other person to send the color fax again.

connection. If there is no ringing when you call your machine, ask your telephone
company to check the line.
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 socket and the LINE socket on the machine.
Ask the other party to check that the receiving machine has paper.
Print the Transmission Verification Report and check for an error. (uuAdvanced
User’s Guide: Reports)
Transmission Verification Report
says ”RESULT:ERROR”.
There is probably temporary noise or static on the line. Try sending the fax again.
If you send a PC FAX message and get “RESULT:ERROR” on the Transmission
Verification Report, your machine may be out of memory. If the problem continues,
ask the telephone company to check your telephone line.
If you often get transmission errors due to possible interference on the telephone
line, try changing the menu setting of Compatibility to Basic(for VoIP).
(See Telephone line interference / VoIP uu page 75.)
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 glass uu page 53.)
Vertical black lines when sending.
Black vertical lines on faxes you send are typically caused by dirt or correction fluid
on the glass strip. Clean the glass strip. (See Cleaning the scanner glass
uu page 53.)

B
Handling Incoming Calls
Difficulty
Suggestions
The machine “hears” a voice as a
CNG Tone.
If Fax Detect is set to On, your machine is more sensitive to sounds. It may
mistakenly interpret certain voices or music on the line as a fax machine calling
and respond with fax-receiving tones. Deactivate the machine by pressing
Stop/Exit. Try avoiding this problem by turning Fax Detect to Off.
(See Fax Detect uu page 32.)
Sending a fax call to the machine.
If you answered on an extension or external telephone, press your Remote
Activation Code (the factory default is l 5 1). If you answered on an external
telephone, press Start 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, 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 (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, a separate telephone line with no
custom features is recommended.
Copying Difficulties
Difficulty
Suggestions
Poor copy results when using the
ADF.
Try using the scanner glass. (See Using the scanner glass uu page 24.)
Vertical black lines or streaks
appear in copies.
Vertical black lines or streaks on copies are typically caused by dirt or correction
fluid on the glass strip. Clean the glass strip. (See Cleaning the scanner glass

Troubleshooting
Dial Tone detection
When you send a fax automatically, by
default your machine will wait for a fixed
amount of time before it starts to dial the
number. By changing the Dial Tone setting to
Detection you can make your machine dial
as soon as it detects a dial tone. This setting
can save a small amount of time when
sending a fax to many different numbers. If
you change the setting and start having
problems when dialling, you should change it
back to the No Detection setting.

e
Press Stop/Exit.
B
Telephone line
interference / VoIP
B
If you are having problems sending or
receiving a fax due to possible interference
on the telephone line, you can change the
compatibility setting, which reduces the
modem speed to minimise errors.
a
b
Press Menu.
c
Press a or b to choose
Compatibility.
Press OK.
d
Press a or b to choose Normal or
Basic(for VoIP).
Press OK.
Press a or b to choose
Initial Setup.
Press OK.
 Basic(for VoIP) cuts the
modem speed to 9,600 bps and
turns off color fax receiving and
ECM, except for color fax sending.
Unless interference is a recurring
problem on your telephone line, you
may prefer to use it only when
needed.
To improve compatibility with most
VoIP services, Brother recommends
changing the compatibility setting to
Basic(for VoIP).
 Normal sets the modem speed at
14,400 bps.
e
Press Stop/Exit.
Note
• VoIP (Voice over IP) is a type of phone
system that uses an internet connection,
rather than a traditional phone line.
• Brother does not recommend the use of a
VoIP line. VoIP limitations in general can
cause some functions of the fax machine
not to work correctly.

The name "Innobella™" derives from the words "Innovation" and
"Bella" (meaning "Beautiful" in Italian) and is a representation of the
"innovative" technology providing you with "beautiful" and "long
lasting" print results.
