do a test print first before printing many
envelopes.
Note
If envelopes or post cards are ‘doublefeeding’, put one envelope or post card in
the paper tray at a time.
CAUTION
DO NOT use any of the following types of
envelopes, as they will cause paper feed
problems:
• That are of a baggy construction.
• That are embossed (have raised writing
on them).
• That have clasps or staples.
• That are pre-printed on the inside.

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 photo paper,
be sure to choose the correct print media
in the ‘Basic’ tab of the printer driver or in
the Paper Type setting of the menu. (See
Paper Size and Type (MFC-6490CW
only) on page 27.)
„ 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 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.
18
Recommended print media
2
To get the best print quality, we suggest using
Brother paper. (See table below.)
If Brother paper is not available in your
country, we recommend testing various
papers before purchasing large quantities.
We recommend using ‘3M Transparency
Film’ when you print on transparencies.

Up to 50 sheets of 80 g/m2 A4 paper.
„ Transparencies and photo paper must be
picked up from the output paper tray one
page at a time to avoid smudging.
„ 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
document. Use only transparencies
recommended for inkjet printing.
„ You can only print on both sides of the
paper with PC printing. (See Printing for

When the machine is in Fax/Tel mode, it will
use the F/T Ring Time (pseudo/doubleringing) to alert you to pick up a voice call.
If you are at an external telephone, lift the
handset of the external telephone, and then
press Tel/R to answer.
If you are at an extension telephone, you'll
need to lift the handset during the F/T Ring
Time and then press # 5 1 between the
pseudo/double rings. If no one is on the line,
or if someone wants to send you a fax, send
the call back to the machine by pressing

PBX and TRANSFER
The machine is initially set to Normal, which
lets the machine connect to a standard PSTN
(Public Switched Telephone Network) line.
However, many offices use a central
telephone system or Private Branch
Exchange (PBX). Your machine can be
connected to most types of PBX. The
machine's recall feature supports timed break
recall only (TBR). TBR will work with most
PBX systems allowing you to gain access to
an outside line, or transfer calls to another
extension. The feature works when Tel/R is
pressed.
You can program a Tel/R key press as
part of a number stored in a One Touch
dial or Speed Dial location. When
programming the One Touch dial or
Speed Dial number, press Tel/R first (the
LCD shows ‘!’), then enter the telephone
number. If you do this, you do not need to
press Tel/R each time before you dial
using a One Touch dial or Speed Dial
location. (See Storing numbers
on page 74.) However, if PBX is not
chosen in the Telephone Line Type
setting, you cannot use the One Touch
dial or Speed Dial number that the Tel/R
press is programmed into.
7
This machine feature lets you use the BT Call
Sign subscriber service which allows you to
have at least two separate telephone
numbers on one telephone line. Each
telephone number has its own distinctive
ringing pattern, so you know which telephone
number is ringing. This is one way you can
have a separate telephone number for your
machine.
Your machine has a BT Call Sign compatible
distinctive ringing function, allowing you to
dedicate a second telephone number (on the
same telephone line) just for receiving faxes.
Note
• You can switch BT Call Sign off
temporarily, then turn it back on. When
you get a new fax number, make sure you
reset this function. This machine will
automatically answer incoming calls that
use your new fax number.
• When you set the BT Call Sign feature to
ON, the receive mode is set to Manual
automatically. Manual mode will not
respond to incoming telephone calls,
since the number you use for telephone
calls will use the normal ring pattern.

Connecting an external
TAD (telephone
answering device)
7
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.

The external TAD must be connected as
shown in the previous illustration.
a
Set your external TAD to one or two
rings. (The machine's Ring Delay setting
does not apply.)
b
Record the outgoing message on your
external TAD.
c
d
Set the TAD to answer calls.
Timing is important in recording this message.
The message sets up the ways to handle 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
Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
Note
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.
68
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 properly 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.

Operation from extension
telephones
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 the machine answers a voice call and
pseudo/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) on page 51.)

Your premises may already be wired with
parallel extension telephones, or you may
plan to add extension telephones to your line,
as well as your machine. While the simplest
arrangement is a straightforward parallel
connection, there are some problems with
this arrangement, the most obvious of which
is inadvertent interruption of a facsimile
transmission caused by someone picking up
an extension telephone to make an outgoing
call. Also, remote activation code may not
operate reliably in such a simple
configuration.
This machine may also be set to make a
delayed transmission (i.e. a transmission at a
pre-set time). This pre-set job may coincide
with someone picking up an extension
handset.
These problems can easily be eliminated, if
you arrange modification of your extension
wiring circuit, such that extension devices are
connected ‘downstream’ of your machine in a
master/slave configuration (see fig. 2). In this
configuration the machine can always detect
whether a telephone is in use. Thus it will not
attempt to seize the line during that time. This
is known as ‘telephone off-hook detection.’
The inadvisable configuration is shown in
figure 1, and the recommended master/slave
configuration is shown in figure 2.

Chapter 7
Using a cordless external
telephone
This new connection configuration can be
arranged by contacting BT, Kingston upon
Hull Telecommunications, your PBX
maintainer or a qualified telephone
installation company as appropriate. Simply
explained, the extension telephone circuit
should be terminated on a normal modular
plug (BT 431A style), which in turn should be
put into the modular socket of the white ‘T’shaped connector provided as part of the line
cord assembly.

sockets (Fig. 1.)

If your cordless telephone is connected to the
telephone line cord (See External and
extension telephones on page 69) and you
typically carry the cordless handset
elsewhere, it is easier to answer calls during
the Ring Delay.
If you let the machine answer first, you will
have to go to the machine so you can press
Tel/R to send the call to the cordless handset.

Printing photos from a memory card or USB Flash memory drive
Memory cards or a USB Flash

Please be aware of the following:
12
Your machine is designed to be compatible
with modern digital camera image files,
memory cards and USB Flash memory drive;
however, please read the points below to
avoid errors:
„ The image file extension must be .JPG
(Other image file extensions like .JPEG,
.TIF, .GIF and so on will not be
recognized).
„ PhotoCapture Center™ printing must be
performed separately from PhotoCapture
Center™ operations using the PC.
(Simultaneous operation is not available.)
„ IBM Microdrive™ is not compatible with
the machine.
„ The machine can read up to 999 files on a
memory card or USB Flash memory drive.
„ CompactFlash® Type II is not supported.
„ This product supports xD-Picture Card™
Type M / Type M+ / Type H (Large
Capacity).
„ The DPOF file on the memory cards must
be in a valid DPOF format. (See DPOF
printing on page 109.)
„ When printing Print Index or Print
Images, the PhotoCapture Center™ will
print all the valid images, even if one or
more images have been corrupted.
Corrupted images will not be printed.
„ (memory card users)
Your machine is designed to read memory
cards that have been formatted by a digital
camera.
When a digital camera formats a memory
card it creates a special folder into which it
copies image data. If you need to modify
the image data stored on a memory card
with your PC, we recommend that you do
not modify the folder structure created by
the digital camera. When saving new or
modified image files to the memory card
we also recommend you use the same
folder your digital camera uses. If the data
is not saved to the same folder, the
machine may not be able to read the file or
print the image.
„ (USB Flash memory drive users)
This machine supports USB Flash
memory drives that have been formatted
by Windows®.

connection. If there is no ringing when you call your machine, ask your telephone
company to check the line.
Receiving Faxes
Difficulty
Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
Check all line cord connections.
Make sure the machine is in the correct receiving mode for your setup. (See
Receive mode settings on page 51.)
If you often have interference on the telephone line, try changing the menu setting
of Compatibility to Basic(for VoIP). (See Telephone line interference

139
Sending Faxes (continued)
Difficulty
Suggestions
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 on page 161.)
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
on page 161.)
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 on page 52.)
Sending a fax call to the machine.
If you answered on an external or extension telephone, press your Remote
Activation Code (the factory setting is l 5 1). 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.

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

Replacing the ink cartridges
B
B
Your machine is equipped with an ink dot
counter. The ink dot counter automatically
monitors the level of ink in each of the 4
cartridges. When the machine detects an ink
cartridge is running out of ink, the machine
will tell you with a message on the LCD.
The LCD will tell you which ink cartridge is low
or needs replacing. Be sure to follow the LCD
prompts to replace the ink cartridges in the
correct order.
WARNING
Be careful not to trap your fingers under the
scanner cover.
Always use the finger holds provided on
both sides of the scanner cover when
opening and closing it.
i
Push paper tray #1 and paper tray #2
firmly back into the machine.
Note
Make sure you pull out the paper support
until it clicks.
Even though the machine tells you that an ink
cartridge is empty, 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
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 genuine Brother Branded 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
genuine Brother Branded cartridges or the
refilling of empty 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 other brands of ink or ink
cartridges, any repairs required as a result
may not be covered by the warranty.

CAUTION
DO NOT take out ink cartridges if you do

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 colour. If
the ink cartridge you installed is not a
brand new one, be sure to press 2 (No).
• If the LCD shows No Cartridge or
Cannot Detect after you install the ink
cartridges, check that the ink cartridges
are installed correctly.
If you mix the colours 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.

If ink gets in your eyes, wash them out with
water at once and call a doctor if you are
concerned.
