Brother® One Year Limited Warranty and
Replacement Service (USA only)
Who is covered:
• This limited warranty ("warranty") is given only to the original end-use/retail
purchaser (referred to in this warranty as "Original Purchaser") of the
accompanying product, consumables and accessories (collectively
referred to in this warranty as "this Product").
• If you purchased a product from someone other than an authorized Brother

limited to floor models or refurbished product), prior to your purchase you
are not the Original Purchaser and the product that you purchased is not
covered by this warranty.
What is covered:

Consumable and Accessory Items include but are not limited to print
heads, toner, drums, ink cartridges, print cartridges, refill ribbons, therma
PLUS paper and thermal paper.
• Except as otherwise provided herein, Brother warrants that the Machine
and the accompanying Consumable and Accessory Items will be free from
defects in materials and workmanship, when used under normal
conditions.
• This warranty applies only to products purchased and used in the United
States. For products purchased in, but used outside, the United States,
this warranty covers only warranty service within the United States (and
does not include shipping outside the United States).
What is the length of the Warranty Periods:
• Machines: one year from the original purchase date.
• Accompanying Consumable and Accessory Items: 90 days from the
original purchase date or the rated life of consumable, whichever comes
first.
What is NOT covered:
This warranty does not cover:
(1) Physical damage to this Product;
(2) Damage caused by improper installation, improper or abnormal use,
misuse, neglect or accident (including but not limited to transporting this
Product without the proper preparation and/or packaging);
(3) Damage caused by another device or software used with this Product
(including but not limited to damage resulting from use of non
Brother®-brand parts and Consumable and Accessory Items);
(4) Consumable and Accessory Items that expired in accordance with a
rated life; and,
(5) Problems arising from other than defects in materials or workmanship.
(6) Normal Periodic Maintenance Items, such as Paper Feeding Kit, Fuser
and Laser Units.
This limited warranty is VOID if this Product has been altered or modified in
any way (including but not limited to attempted warranty repair without
authorization from Brother and/or alteration/removal of the serial number).
What to do if you think your Product is eligible for warranty service:
Report your issue to either our Customer Service Hotline at 1-800-284-4329
for Fax, MFC and DCP and 1-800-276-7746 for Printers, or to a Brother
Authorized Service Center within the applicable warranty period. Supply
Brother or the Brother Authorized Service Center with a copy of your dated
bill of sale showing that this Product was purchased within the U.S. For the
name of local Brother Authorized Service Center(s), call 1-800-521-2846.
What Brother will ask you to do:
After contacting Brother or a Brother Authorized Service Center, you may be
required to deliver (by hand if you prefer) or send the Product properly
packaged, freight prepaid, to the Authorized Service Center together with a
photocopy of your bill of sale. You are responsible for the cost of
shipping, packing product, and insurance (if you desire). You are also
responsible for loss or damage to this Product in shipping.
What Brother will do:
If the problem reported concerning your Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items is covered by this warranty and if you first
reported the problem to Brother or an Authorized Service Center within the
applicable warranty period, Brother or its Authorized Service Center will
repair or replace the Machine and/or accompanying Consumable and
Accessory Items at no charge to you for parts or labor. The decision as to
whether to repair or replace the Machine and/or accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items is made
iv
Brother® One Year Limited Warranty and
Replacement Service (USA only)
by Brother in its sole discretion. Brother reserves the right to supply a
refurbished or remanufactured replacement Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items and use refurbished parts provided such
replacement products conform to the manufacturer's specifications for new
product/parts. The repaired or replacement Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items will be returned to you freight prepaid or
made available for you to pick up at a conveniently located Authorized
Service Center.
If the Machine and/or accompanying Consumable and Accessory Items are
not covered by this warranty (either stage), you will be charged for shipping
the Machine and/or accompanying Consumable and Accessory Items back
to you and charged for any service and/or replacement parts/products at
Brother's then current published rates.
The foregoing are your sole (i.e., only) and exclusive remedies under
this warranty.
What happens when Brother elects to replace 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.
Limitations:
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, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY
AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE HEREBY
DISCLAIMED.
• This Limited Warranty is the only warranty that Brother is giving for this
Product. It is the final expression and the exclusive and only statement of
Brother's obligations to you. It replaces all other agreements and
understandings that you may have with Brother or its representatives.
• This warranty gives you certain rights and you may also have other rights
that may vary from state to state.
• This Limited Warranty (and Brother's obligation to you) may not be
changed in any way unless you and Brother sign the same piece of paper
in which we (1) refer to this Product and your bill of sale date, (2) describe
the change to this warranty and (3) agree to make that change.
Important: We recommend that you keep all original packing materials, in
the event that you ship this Product.

BROTHER MULTIFUNCTION CENTER/FACSIMILE
MACHINE LIMITED WARRANTY
(Canada only)
Pursuant to this limited warranty of 1 year from the date of purchase for
labour and parts, Brother International Corporation (Canada) Ltd.
(“Brother”), or its Authorized Service 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.
For laser products: Failure to remove the Toner Cartridge (and Toner Drum
Unit on applicable models) during shipping will cause severe damage to the
MFC/Facsimile and will VOID the Warranty. (Refer to your User’s Guide 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 User’s Guide for proper packaging.)
BROTHER DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES EXPRESSED OR
IMPLIED INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT THAT ANY
WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY LAW CANNOT BE VALIDLY WAIVED.
No oral or written information, advice or representation provided by Brother,
its Authorized Service Centers, Distributors, Dealers, Agents or employees,
shall create another warranty or modify this warranty. This warranty states
Brother’s entire liability and your exclusive remedy against Brother for any
failure of the MFC/Facsimile machine 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 possibility of such
damages. Since some Provinces do not allow the above limitation of liability,
such limitation may not apply to you.
This Limited Warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have
other rights which vary from Providence to Providence.
Warranty Service is available at Brother Authorized Service Centers
throughout Canada. For Technical Support or for the name and
location of your nearest Authorized Service Center call

an electrical shock.
After you have just used the fax
machine, some internal parts are
extremely HOT! Please be
careful.
WARNING

touch telephone wires or terminals that are not insulated unless
the telephone line has been disconnected at the wall jack.
Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm. Never

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 fax machine, there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail and
the fax machine may conflict with each other while receiving
incoming calls.
Why should there be problems?
Since both the fax machine 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
the fax machine is set to answer after four, your Voice Mail will stop
the fax machine from receiving faxes.
If you set Voice Mail and the fax machine 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 fax
machine 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 this service, which is called
‘Distinctive Ring’, and they are very satisfied with it.
(See Distinctive Ring on page 5-8.)
Another way to avoid possible problems is to replace your Voice
Mail with an answering machine. Your fax machine is designed to
work with an answering machine or TAD (telephone answering
device).
(See Connecting an external telephone answering device (TAD)
on page 1-8.)

Introduction
Fax tones and handshake
When someone is sending a fax, the fax machine sends fax calling
tones (CNG tones). These are quiet, intermittent beeps every
4-seconds. You’ll hear them after you dial and press Fax Start and
they will continue for about 60 seconds after dialing. During that
time, the sending machine must begin the “handshake” 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 RECEIVE.
If the fax machine is set to the FAX ONLY mode, it will answer every
call automatically with fax receiving tones. If the other person
hangs up, the fax machine will continue to send the “chirps” for
about 40 seconds, and the LCD continues to show RECEIVE. To
cancel the 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 the fax 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 1-8.)
ECM (Error Correction Mode)
The Error Correction Mode (ECM) is a way for the fax machine to
check a fax transmission while it is in progress. ECM transmissions
are only possible between machines that both have this feature. If
they do, you may send and receive fax messages that are
continuously being checked by the fax machine.
The fax machine must have enough memory for this feature to
work.

Connections
Connecting an external telephone
You can connect a separate telephone (or telephone answering
device) directly to your fax machine as shown in the diagram
below.
Connect the telephone’s line cord to the jack labeled EXT. in the
side of the fax machine.
.
Extension
Telephone
External
Telephone
Whenever this phone (or TAD) is in use, the LCD shows
EXT. TEL IN USE, and, if the fax handset is lifted, an alarm
sounds.
To disconnect the call on the external phone and switch to the fax,
lift the handset and press Hook.
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 fax
machine, the TAD answers all calls and the fax machine “listens”
for fax calling (CNG) tones. If it hears them, the fax machine takes
over the call and receives the fax. If it doesn’t hear CNG tones, the
fax 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 fax 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 manual for recording
your outgoing message. We do not recommend using the toll saver
feature on your external answering machine if it exceeds four rings.
If you do not receive all your faxes, you must reset the setting
on your external TAD to four rings or less.

Introduction
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 the fax
machine, use that number as a fax number and set your fax
machine’s Receive mode to MANUAL. 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 the fax machine.
If your TAD is plugged into a wall jack, both your fax machine
and the TAD will try to control the phone line. (See illustration
on page 1-10.)
Introduction

Unless you are using Distinctive Ring, do not connect a
TAD elsewhere on the same phone line.

sure this cord is connected to the TAD at the TAD’s telephone
line jack, and not its telephone set jack.)
Set your external TAD to four rings or less. (The fax machine’s
Ring Delay setting does not apply.)
Record the outgoing message on your external TAD.
Set the TAD to answer calls.
Set the Receive Mode to TAD:ANSWER MACH..
(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
2
3
Record 5 seconds of silence at the beginning of your
message. (This allows the fax machine time to listen for the
fax CNG tones of automatic transmissions before they stop.)
Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
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.”
1 - 10
Introduction
We recommend beginning your OGM with an initial 5-second
silence because the fax machine cannot hear fax tones over
a resonant or loud voice. You may try omitting this pause, but
if the fax machine has trouble receiving, then you must
re-record the OGM to include it.
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.
The fax machine 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 fax machine 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. The fax
machine 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
fax machine 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 the fax machine.
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 the fax machine is on Line 1, plug the fax machine into
L1 of the triplex adapter. If the fax machine is on Line 2, plug it into
L2 of the triple adapter.

Installing fax machine, 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, the fax machine must be
isolated on one line at both the wall jack and at the TAD. The most
common connection is to put the fax machine 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 the fax machine and two for your external
two-line TAD. You will need a fourth line cord if you add a two-line
telephone.

Place the two-line TAD and the two-line telephone next to the
fax machine.
Plug one end of the telephone line cord for the fax machine
into the L2 jack of the triplex adapter. Plug the other end into
the LINE jack on the back side of the fax machine.
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.
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 fax machine.

You can keep two-line telephones on other wall outlets as always.
There are two ways to add a two-line telephone to the fax
machine’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.

Introduction
Multi-Line connections (PBX)
Most offices use a central telephone system. While it is often
relatively simple to connect the fax machine 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 fax machine for you. It is advisable to have a separate
line for the fax machine.
If the fax machine 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.
If you are installing the fax machine 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, 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 fax machine.
(See Custom features on a single line on page 12-7.)

NOTICE
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it
unlawful for any person to use a computer or electronic device to
send any message via a telephone fax machine unless such
messages clearly contain, in a margin at the top or bottom of each
transmitted page, or on the first page of the transmission, the date
and time it is sent and an identification of the business or other
entity or other individual sending the message and the telephone
number of the sending machines or such business, other entity or

Basic receiving operations
Choosing the Receive Mode
There are four different Receive Modes for the fax machine. You
can choose the mode that best suits your needs.

How it works
When to use it
FAX ONLY
(automatic
receive)
The fax machine
automatically
answers every call
as a fax.
For dedicated fax lines.
FAX/TEL*
(fax and
telephone)
The fax machine
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 on the same line. You cannot
use the telephone company’s Voice
Mail in this mode.
TAD:ANSWER
MACH.
(with an
external
answering
device)
The external
answering device
(TAD) automatically
answers every call.
Voice messages
are stored on the
external TAD. Fax
messages are
printed.
Use this mode if you have connected
an external answering machine to
your machine.
The TAD setting works only with an
external answering machine. Ring
Delay and F/T Ring Time do not
work in this setting.
MANUAL
(manual
receive)
You control the
phone line and
must answer every
call yourself.
Use this mode if you do not receive
many fax messages, with Distinctive
Ring or if you are using a computer
on the same line.
If you answer and hear fax tones,
wait until the machine takes over the
call, then hang up. (See Easy
Receive on page 5-3)
* In FAX/TEL mode you must set the RING DELAY and
F/T RING TIME. If you have extension phones on the line, keep
the RING DELAY set to 4 rings.

Setting the F/T Ring Time (FAX/TEL mode only)
If you set the Receive Mode to FAX/TEL, you’ll need to decide how
long the fax machine will signal you with its special
pseudo/double-ring when you have a voice call. (If it’s a fax call, the
fax machine prints the fax.) This pseudo double ringing happens
after the initial ringing from the phone company. Only the fax
machine rings 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) on the same
line as the fax machine. (See Operation from extension telephones
on page 5-5.)

the fax machine will continue to ring for the set time.
Easy Receive
When you use this feature, you don’t have to press Fax Start or the
Fax Receive Code
5 1 when you answer a fax call and hear
calling beeps. Just hold the handset and wait a few seconds.
Selecting ON allows the fax machine to receive fax calls
automatically, even if you lift the machine’s handset or the handset
of an extension or external phone. When you see RECEIVE on the
LCD or when you hear “chirps” through the handset of an
extension phone connected to another wall jack, just replace the
handset and the fax machine will do the rest. SEMI lets the fax
machine receive the fax only if you’ve answered it at the fax
machine.
■ If you have set this feature to EASY RECEIVE:ON, but your
machine does not automatically connect a fax call when
you lift an external or extension phone handset, press the
Fax Receive Code
5 1. At the machine lift the handset
and then press Fax Start.
■ If you send faxes from a computer on the same phone line
and the machine intercepts them, set this feature to
EASY RECEIVE:OFF.

Printing a reduced incoming fax (Auto Reduction)
If you choose ON, the fax machine automatically reduces an
incoming fax to fit on one page of Letter or Legal size paper,

place, and you will get the same size as the sender’s
document.
Setting Paper Size
You can use three sizes of paper for printing your faxes—Letter,

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 of the machine, you can make the fax
machine take the call by using the Fax Receive Code. When you
press the Fax Receive Code
5 1, the fax machine starts to
receive a fax. (See Easy Receive on page 5-3.)
If the fax machine answers a voice call and pseudo/double-rings
for you to take over, use the Telephone Answer Code # 5 1 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),
press
5 1, wait for fax-receiving tones (chirps), and then
hang up.
■ At an external phone (connected to the fax machine’s EXT
jack), press
5 1 and wait for the phone to be disconnected
before you hang up (the LCD shows RECEIVE).
Your caller will have to press the Start key to send the fax.
For FAX/TEL mode only
When the fax machine 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.
If you’re at an extension or external phone, you’ll need to lift the
handset during the F/T Ring Time and then press # 5 1 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 fax machine by pressing
5 1.
Using a cordless external handset
If your cordless telephone is connected to the EXT. jack of the fax
machine and you typically carry the cordless handset elsewhere, it
is easier to answer calls during the Ring Delay. If you let the fax
machine answer first, you will have to answer using the cordless
and then go to the fax machine so you can press Hook to transfer
the call to the cordless handset.

Everyone who is involved in Polling needs to set up their fax
machines for Polling. When someone polls the fax machine to
receive a fax, they pay for the call. If you poll someone’s fax
machine to receive a fax, you pay for the call.

Telephone services
Your fax machine supports the Caller ID and Distinctive Ring
subscriber telephone service that some telephone companies
offer.
If you have Voice Mail, Call Waiting, RingMaster, an
answering service, an alarm system or other custom features
on your telephone line, it may affect the way the fax machine
works. (See Custom features on a single line on page 12-7.)
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 machine.
Please call your telephone company for availability and rates.
What does Brother’s ‘Distinctive Ring’ do?
The Brother fax 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 phone number on
your line can just receive faxes.
You must pay for your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring
service before you program the fax machine to work with it.
Do you have Voice Mail?
If you have Voice Mail on the phone line that you will install your
new fax machine on, there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail
and the fax machine will conflict with each other while receiving
incoming calls. However, this 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 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
machine 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.
Setup Receive
5-8
Before you choose the ring pattern to register
You can only register one Distinctive Ring pattern with the

patterns below are supported by the Brother machine. Register the
one your telephone company gives you.

If the ring pattern you received is not on this chart, please call
your telephone company and ask for one that is shown.
■ The machine will only answer calls to its registered number.
■ The first two rings are silent on the machine. 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 machine 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 machine 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

Caller ID
The Caller ID feature lets you use the Caller ID subscriber
service offered by many local telephone companies. This
service displays the telephone number, or name if it is
available, of your caller as the line rings.
After a few rings, the LCD shows the telephone number of your
caller (and 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.
Caller ID service varies with different carriers. Call your local
telephone company to determine the kind of service available in
your area.
Caller ID Log
Your machine stores up to 30 of the last Caller IDs received into

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. Make sure you have
selected CHAIN as the type of number when you stored the
beginning portions of a long number.
The combined number will be dialed in the order that you entered
it as soon as you press Fax Start.
(See Storing Speed-Dial numbers on page 7-2.)
Perhaps you have stored ‘555’ on Speed-Dial #03 and ‘7000’ on
Speed-Dial #02. If you press Search/Speed Dial, #03,
Search/Speed Dial, #02, and Fax Start, you will dial ‘555-7000’.
To temporarily change a number, you can substitute part of the
number with manual using the dial pad.
For example, to change the number to 555-7001 you could press
Search/Speed Dial, #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

Phone Line or Connections
The fax machine
does not answer
when called.
Make sure the fax machine is in the correct receiving
mode for your setup. (See Choosing the Receive Mode
on page 5-1.) Check for a dial tone. If possible, call the
fax machine to hear it answer. If there is still no answer,
check the telephone line cord connection. Connect a
standard telephone to the fax machine’s telephone
wall jack. If there is no ringing when you call the fax
machine, ask your telephone company to check the
line.
External
Telephone
answering device
(TAD) does not
answer when
called
Make sure the telephone line cord from your TAD is
connected to the back of the fax machine, in the jack
labeled EXT. (See Connecting an external telephone
answering device (TAD) on page 1-8.) Make sure the
TAD is set to answer calls.
No dial tone on the Press Hook—OR—Lift the handset. If you don’t hear a
handset
dial tone, check telephone line cord connections at the
fax machine and wall jack. Check that the handset is
connected to the fax machine’s handset jack. Test the
wall jack with another single line telephone. If there is
no dial tone at the wall outlet, call your telephone
company.
The Caller ID does
not display after
the Call Waiting

The Caller ID signal is sent ten seconds after the Call
Waiting Signal and speaking may interfere with it.
When you hear the Call Waiting signal, ask the other
party to hold while you answer the call. Then stop
speaking until you see the Caller ID on the LCD.
Receiving Faxes
Cannot receive a

(See Compatibility on page 12-4.)
If the problem continues, call the telephone company
to check your phone line.
Handling Incoming Calls
Double-ring in
FAX/TEL mode
The fax machine knows the incoming call is not a fax
so it is signaling you to answer the telephone call. Pick
up the fax machine’s handset or answer from an
extension phone, and then press the fax machine’s
Telephone Answer Code (default setting is #51).
(See For FAX/TEL mode only on page 5-5.)
Transferring a call If you have answered at the fax machine’s handset,
to the fax machine press Fax Start and hang up immediately.
If you answered at an extension phone, press your
three-digit Fax Receive Code (default setting is 51).
When the fax machine answers, hang up.
The fax machine
“hears” voice as
fax tone
If the fax machine is set to Easy Receive ON, it is more
sensitive to sounds. The fax machine 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 #51 if you are at an
extension phone or press Stop/Exit if you are at the
fax machine or an external phone.
Try avoiding this problem by turning Easy Receive to
OFF. (See Easy Receive on page 5-3.)
Custom features
on a single line
If you have Call Waiting, Ring Master, Voice Mail, an
alarm system or any other custom feature on a single
phone line with the fax machine, it may create a
problem sending or receiving fax data.
For example: If you are sending or receiving a fax
message while a custom feature signal comes through
on the line, the signal can temporarily interrupt or
disrupt the fax data. Your fax machine’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 data on a
single, shared line with custom features. If avoiding a
slight interruption is crucial to your business, we
recommend a separate phone line with no custom
features.
