Before Using Your Machine
Before attempting any printing operation, confirm the following:
•
Make sure you have installed the Brother software and drivers.
•
For USB or network cable users: Make sure the interface cable is physically secure.
Selecting the correct type of paper
For high quality printing, it is important to select the correct type of paper. Be sure to read the information about
acceptable paper before buying paper, and to determine the printable area depending on the settings in the
printer driver.
Simultaneous printing, scanning and faxing
Your machine can print from your computer while sending or receiving a fax into memory or while scanning a
document into the computer. Fax sending will not be stopped during printing from your computer. However, when
the machine is copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the printing operation, and then continues printing
when copying or fax receiving has finished.
Firewall (Windows®)
If your computer is protected by a firewall and you are unable to network print, network scan, or PC-FAX, you
may need to configure the firewall settings. If you are using the Windows® Firewall and you installed the Brother
software and drivers from the CD-ROM, the necessary firewall settings have already been set. If you are using
any other personal firewall software, see the User's Guide for your software or contact the software
manufacturer.

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, recycled paper 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) and glossy paper, be sure to choose the proper print media in
the Basic tab of the printer driver or in the Paper Type setting on the machine.
•
When you print on Brother Photo paper, load one extra sheet of the same photo paper in the paper tray.
•
When using 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.

5. Reverse page orientation
Select this option to rotate the printed image 180 degrees.
6. Flip horizontally
Select this option to reverse the printed image on the page horizontally from left to right.
111
Paper Handling
1. Collate pages
Select this option to print sets of multi-page documents in the original page order. When this option is
selected, one complete copy of your document will print, and then reprint according to the number of copies
you choose. If this option is not selected, then each page will print according to the number of copies chosen
before the next page of the document is printed.
2. Page Order
Select the page order.
3. Scale to fit paper size
Select this option to enlarge or reduce the pages in your document to fit the selected paper size.
4. Destination Paper Size
Select the paper size to print on.
5. Scale down only
Select this option if you want to reduce the pages in your document when they are too large for the selected
paper size. If this option is selected and the document is formatted for a paper size that is smaller than the
paper size you are using, the document will be printed at its original size.
112
Print Settings
1. Media Type
Select the type of media you want to use. To achieve the best print results, the machine automatically adjusts
its print settings according to the selected media type.
2. Slow Drying Paper
Select this option if you use a type of plain paper on which ink dries slowly. This option may cause slight
blurring of the text.
3. Print Quality
Select the print resolution you want. Because print quality and speed are related, the higher the quality, the
longer it will take to print the document.
4. Color/Grayscale
Select colour or greyscale printing. The print speed is faster in greyscale mode than it is in colour mode. If
your document contains colour and you select greyscale mode, your document will be printed using 256
levels of greyscale.
5. Paper Source (available only for certain models)
Select the paper source setting according to your print conditions or purpose.
6. Advanced
Change Data Transfer Mode
Select the print data transfer mode to improve print quality or print speed.
Reduce Uneven Lines
Select this option to adjust the print alignment if your printed text becomes blurred or images become
faded.
Reduce Smudge
Some types of print media may need more drying time. Change this option if you have problems with
smudged printouts or paper jams.
113
Other Print Options
Paper Thickness
Select the appropriate paper thickness.
Bi-Directional Printing
Select this option to increase the print speed. When this option is selected, the print head prints in both
directions. When this option is cleared, the print head prints in only one direction, resulting in higher
quality printouts but causing slower print speeds.
Sometimes, the movement of the print head may vary due to environmental conditions. This may be
seen when you print vertical lines and they do not align. If you encounter this problem, turn off the BiDirectional Printing feature.
Color Settings
1. Color Mode
Select the colour mode to suit your preference.
2. Advanced Color Settings
Click the disclosure triangle to view the Advanced Colour Settings. Select the Colour Enhancement check
box, and then set the options using the sliders. This process may take several minutes depending on the size
of the image and the specifications of your computer.

Fax/Tel
[Fax/Tel] mode helps you manage incoming calls, by recognising whether they are fax or voice calls and
handling them in one of the following ways:
•
Faxes will be received automatically.
•
Voice calls will start the F/T ring to tell you to pick up the line. The F/T ring is a pseudo/double-ring made
by your machine.
Manual
[Manual] mode turns off all automatic answering functions (unless you are using the BT Call Sign feature).
To receive a fax in [Manual] mode, lift the handset of the external telephone. When you hear fax tones (short
repeating beeps), press the Start button, and then select [Receive] to receive a fax. You can also use the
Fax Detect feature to receive faxes by lifting a handset on the same line as the machine.
External TAD

Incoming calls will be handled in the following ways:
•
Faxes will be received automatically.
•
Voice callers can record a message on the external TAD.

However, if it is a voice call, the machine will sound the F/T ring (pseudo/double-ring) for the time you set in the

This feature of the machine 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.
•
This feature is available only in the U.K.
•
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.

Once you answer a call, the Caller ID information disappears from the LCD and is stored in Caller ID memory.

PBX and TRANSFER
The machine's [Phone Line Set] default setting is [Normal], which lets the machine connect to a standard
Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) 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. Press [R] to use this feature.
Program a press of the [R] button as part of a number stored in the Address Book. When programming the
Address Book number, press [R] first (the LCD displays ‘!’), then enter the telephone number. This avoids
having to press [R] each time before you dial from the Address Book. However, your Telephone Line Type
must be set to PBX on the machine for you to use this feature.

Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP/Telephone Line Interference)
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 one end of your telephone cord is connected to the socket labelled LINE on your
machine. The other end of the telephone cord may be connected to a modem, phone adapter, splitter, or other
such device.
If you have questions about how to connect your machine to the VoIP system, please contact your VoIP
provider.
After you have connected your machine to the VoIP system, check for a dial tone. Lift the external telephone's
handset and listen for a dial tone. If there is no dial tone, please contact 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.

External TAD (Telephone Answering Device)
You can connect an external Telephone Answering Device (TAD) to the same line as your machine. When the
TAD answers a call, your machine will “listen” for the CNG (fax calling) tones sent by a sending fax machine. If it
hears them it will take over the call and receive the fax. If it does not hear them, it will let your TAD take a voice
message and the LCD will show [Telephone].
The external TAD must answer within four rings (we recommend setting it to two rings). This is because your
machine cannot hear the CNG tones until the external TAD has picked up the call. The sending machine will
send CNG tones for only eight to ten seconds longer. We do not recommend using the toll saver feature on your
external TAD if it needs more than four rings to activate it.

IMPORTANT
DO NOT connect a TAD elsewhere on the same telephone line.
If you have problems receiving faxes, reduce the Ring Delay setting on your external TAD.

Record an Outgoing Message (OGM) on the External TAD
1. Record five seconds of silence at the beginning of your message. This allows your machine time to listen for
fax tones.
We recommend beginning your OGM with an initial five second silence because the machine cannot hear
fax tones over a loud voice. You may try leaving out this pause, but if your machine has trouble receiving
faxes, then you should re-record the OGM to include it.
2. Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
3. End your 20-second message by giving your Remote Activation Code for people sending manual faxes. For
example: “After the beep, leave a message or press *51 and Start to send a fax.”

We suggest you ask the company that 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 setting 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 that handles your PBX.

If you answer a fax call at 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 *51, the machine starts to
receive the fax.
If the machine answers a voice call and pseudo/double-rings for you to take over, you can take the call at an
extension telephone by pressing the Remote Deactivation Code #51.
If you answer a call and no one is on the line:
You should assume that you’re receiving a manual fax.
Press *51 and wait for the chirp or until the LCD shows [Receiving], and then hang up.
You can also use the Fax Detect feature to make your machine automatically take the call.

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. The most obvious is inadvertent interruption of a fax transmission
caused by someone picking up an extension telephone to make an outgoing call. Also, the remote activation
code feature may not operate reliably in such a simple configuration.
This machine also may 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.
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.

via the T-connector.

Remote Activation Code
If you answer a fax call on an extension or external telephone, you can tell your machine to receive it by pressing
the Remote Activation Code *51. Wait for the chirping sounds then replace the handset.
If you answer a fax call at the external telephone, you can make the machine receive the fax by pressing the
Start button and then selecting the option to receive.
Remote Deactivation Code
If you receive a voice call and the machine is in F/T mode, it will start to sound the F/T ring (pseudo/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 #51 (make sure you press this between the rings).
If the machine answers a voice call and pseudo/double-rings for you to take over, you can take the call at the
external telephone by pressing [Pickup].

Before Configuring Your Brother Machine for a Wireless Network
Before attempting to configure a wireless network, confirm the following:
•
Before configuring wireless settings, you must know your Network name (SSID) and Network Key. If you are
using an enterprise wireless network, you must know the User ID and Password.
If you do not know the security information, please consult the router manufacture, your system
administrator, or your Internet provider.
•
To achieve optimum results with normal everyday document printing, place the Brother machine as close to
the wireless LAN access point/router as possible with minimal obstructions. Large objects and walls between
the two devices and interference from other electronic devices can affect the data transfer speed of your
documents.
Due to these factors, wireless may not be the best method of connection for all types of documents and
applications. If you are printing large files, such as multi-page documents with mixed text and large graphics,
you may want to consider selecting wired Ethernet for faster data transfer (supported models only), or USB
for the fastest throughput speed.
•
Although the Brother machine can be used in both a wired and wireless network (supported models only),
only one connection method can be used at a time. However, a wireless network connection and Wi-Fi Direct
connection, or a wired network connection (supported models only) and Wi-Fi Direct connection can be used
at the same time.

Wi-Fi Direct is one of the wireless configuration methods developed by the Wi-Fi Alliance®. It allows you to
configure a secured wireless network between your Brother machine and a mobile device, such as an Android™
device, Windows® device, iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, without using an access point. Wi-Fi Direct supports
wireless network configuration using the one-push or PIN Method of Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS). You can
also configure a wireless network by manually setting a SSID and password. Your Brother machine's Wi-Fi Direct
feature supports WPA2™ security with AES encryption.

Although the Brother machine can be used in both a wired (supported models only) and wireless
network, only one connection method can be used at a time. However, a wireless network connection
and Wi-Fi Direct connection, or a wired network connection and Wi-Fi Direct connection can be used at
the same time.
•
The Wi-Fi Direct supported device can become a Group Owner (G/O). When configuring the Wi-Fi
Direct network, the Group Owner (G/O) serves as an access point.

Fax Using the Internet (I-Fax)
With Brother's I-Fax program, you can send and receive fax documents using the Internet as the transport
mechanism. Documents are transmitted in email messages as attached TIFF files. Your computer can send and
receive documents as long as it has an application that can generate and view TIFF files. You can use any TIFF
viewer application. Documents sent via the Brother machine will be converted into a TIFF format automatically. If
you want to send and receive messages to and from your Brother machine, your computer's email application
must support Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME).
To use this feature, go to the Brother Solutions Center at support.brother.com, click Downloads on your model
page and download the I-Fax Install Tool.

Important Information about Internet Fax (I-Fax)
I-Fax communication on a LAN is very similar to communication via email; however, it is different from fax
communication using standard phone lines. The following is important information for using I-Fax:
•
Factors such as the receiver's location, structure of the LAN and how busy the circuit (such as the Internet) is
may cause the system to take a longer time than usual to send an error mail.
•
When sending confidential documents, we recommend using standard phone lines instead of the Internet
(due to its low level of security).
•
If the receiver's mail system is not MIME-compatible, you cannot use I-Fax to send documents. If possible,
find out in advance, and note that some servers will not send an error reply.
•
If a document is too large to send via I-Fax, it may not reach the receiver.
•
You cannot change the font or size of the text in any Internet mail you receive.

Supported Security Certificate Features
Your Brother machine supports the use of multiple security certificates, which allows secure authentication and
communication with the machine. The following security certificate features can be used with the machine:
•
SSL/TLS communication
•
SSL communication for SMTP/POP3/IMAP4 (only available for certain models)
•
IEEE 802.1x authentication
The Brother machine supports the following:
•
Pre-installed certificate
Your machine has a pre-installed self-signed certificate. This certificate enables you to use SSL/TLS
communication without creating or installing a different certificate.
The pre-installed self-signed certificate cannot protect your communication from being compromised. We
recommend using a certificate that is issued by a trusted organisation for better security.
•
Self-signed certificate
This print server issues its own certificate. Using this certificate, you can easily use the SSL/TLS
communication without creating or installing a different certificate from a CA.
•
Certificate from a Certificate Authority (CA)
There are two methods for installing a certificate from a CA. If you already have a certificate from a CA or if
you want to use a certificate from an external trusted CA:
•
-
When using a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) from this print server.
-
When importing a certificate and a private key.
Certificate Authority (CA) Certificate
To use a CA certificate that identifies the CA and owns its private key, you must import that CA certificate
from the CA before configuring the security features of the Network.
•
If you are going to use SSL/TLS communication, we recommend contacting your system administrator
first.
•
When you reset the print server back to its default factory settings, the certificate and the private key
that are installed will be deleted. If you want to keep the same certificate and the private key after
resetting the print server, export them before resetting, and then reinstall them.

The ink absorber box or flushing box must

customer service or your local Brother
dealer.
Ink Absorber Pad 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 must
be replaced. Contact Brother customer
service or your local Brother Authorised
Service Centre to have your machine
serviced.
Reasons for cleaning are:
1. The machine automatically cleans
itself after you remove the power cord
and plug it back in.
2. After a paper jam has been cleared,
the machine automatically cleans itself
before the next received page is
printed.
3. The machine automatically cleans
itself after sitting idle for more than 30
days (infrequent use).
4. The machine automatically cleans
itself after ink cartridges of the same
colour have been replaced 12 times.
Repairs resulting from the use of nonBrother supplies may not be covered
under the stated product warranty.

Telephone and Fax problems
Telephone Line or Connections
Difficulties
Suggestions
Dialling does not work. (No dial
tone)
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged
into the telephone wall socket and the LINE socket of the machine. If you
subscribe to DSL or VoIP services, contact your service provider for connection
instructions.
If you are using a VoIP system, try changing the VoIP setting to Basic (for VoIP).
This will lower modem speed and turn off Error Correction Mode (ECM).
See Related Information: Telephone Line Interference/VoIP.
(Available only for some countries.)
Change the Tone/Pulse setting.
See Related Information: Set Tone or Pulse Dialling Mode.
If an external phone is connected to the machine, send a manual fax by lifting the
handset of the external telephone and dialling the number using the external
telephone. Wait to hear the fax receiving tones before sending the fax.
If there is no dial tone, connect a known working telephone and telephone line
cord to the socket. 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 socket.
The machine does not answer
when called.
Make sure the machine is in the correct receive mode for your setup.
See Related Information: Choose the Correct Receive Mode.
Check for a dial tone. If possible, call your machine to hear it answer. If there is
still no answer, check that the telephone line cord is plugged into the telephone
wall socket and the LINE socket of the machine. If there is no ringing when you
call your machine, ask your telephone company to check the line.
Handling Incoming Calls
Difficulties
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
.
Try avoiding this problem by turning Fax Detect to Off.
See Related Information: Set Fax Detect.
Sending a Fax Call to the
machine.
If you answered on an extension or external telephone, press your Remote
Activation Code (the factory setting is *51). If you answered on the external
telephone, press the Start button 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, 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 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, we recommend using a separate
telephone line with no custom features.
Receiving Faxes
651
Difficulties
Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged
into the telephone wall socket and the LINE socket of the machine. If you
subscribe to DSL or VoIP services, contact your service provider for connection
instructions. If you are using a VoIP system, try changing the VoIP setting to
Basic (for VoIP). This will lower modem speed and turn off Error Correction Mode
(ECM).
See Related Information: Telephone Line Interference/VoIP.
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 Related Information: Choose the Correct Receive Mode.
•
If you have a dedicated fax line and want your Brother machine to
automatically answer all incoming faxes, you should select Fax only mode.
•
If your Brother machine shares a line with an external answering machine,
you should select the External TAD mode. In External TAD mode, your
Brother machine will receive incoming faxes automatically and voice callers
will be able to leave a message on your answering machine.
•
If your Brother machine shares a line with other telephones and you want it to
automatically answer all incoming faxes, you should select the Fax/Tel mode.
In Fax/Tel mode, your Brother machine will receive faxes automatically and
produce a pseudo/double-ring to alert you to answer voice calls.
•
If you do not want your Brother machine to answer any incoming faxes
automatically, you should select the 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
one ring.
See Related Information: Set the Number of Rings Before the Machine
Answers (Ring Delay).
•
If the Receive Mode is set to External TAD, reduce the number of rings
programmed on your answering machine to two.
•
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.
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 Related Information: Connect an External TAD.
1. Connect the external TAD as shown in the illustration.
See Related Information: External TAD (Telephone Answering Device).
2. Set your answering machine to answer in one or two rings.
3. 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 Remote Activation Code for people
sending manual faxes. For example: “After the beep, leave a message or
press *51 and Start to send a fax.”
4. Set your answering machine to answer calls.
652
Difficulties
Suggestions
5. Set your Brother machine’s Receive Mode to External TAD.

Make sure your Brother machine’s Fax Detect feature is turned On. Fax Detect is
a feature that allows you to receive a fax even if you answered the call on an
external or extension telephone.
See Related Information: Set Fax Detect.
If you often get transmission errors due to possible interference on the telephone
line or if you are using a VoIP system, try changing the Compatibility setting to

Replace the Ink Cartridges
Your Brother 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.
The LCD displays 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.
IMPORTANT
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 Brother Original 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 unauthorised third-party ink and/or cartridges. To protect your
investment and obtain premium performance from the Brother machine, we strongly recommend the use of
Brother Original ink cartridges.
1. Open the ink cartridge cover (1).
If one or more of the ink cartridges needs replacing, the LCD displays [Black and White Print Only]
or [Replace Ink].
1
If the black cartridge is empty, the only message that will appear is [Replace Ink]. You must replace the
black cartridge.
2. Press the lock release lever to release the cartridge colour indicated on the LCD and remove the cartridge
from the machine, as shown in the illustration.
675
3. Open the new ink cartridge bag for the colour indicated on the LCD, and take out the ink cartridge.
IMPORTANT
•
DO NOT touch the cartridge in the area indicated (1); this can prevent the machine from detecting the
cartridge.
1
•
Quickly shake just the black ink cartridge horizontally 15 times as shown, before inserting it into the
machine.
4. Insert the ink cartridge in the direction of the arrow on the label.
Each colour has its own correct position.
676
5. Gently push the area marked “PUSH” until the ink cartridge locks into place, and then close the ink cartridge
cover.
The machine will automatically reset the ink dot counter.
•
If you replaced an ink cartridge, for example, the Black cartridge, the LCD may ask you to verify that it is
a brand new one (for example, [Did you change Black]). For each new cartridge you installed,
select [Yes] to reset the ink dot counter for that colour. If the ink cartridge you installed is not a brand
new one, be sure to select [No].
•
If the LCD displays [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 until it
locks into place.
IMPORTANT
•
DO NOT shake the ink cartridges. If ink stains your skin or clothing, wash with soap or detergent at once.
•
DO NOT take out ink cartridges if you do not need to replace them; the machine will not know the
quantity of ink left in the cartridge.
•
DO NOT touch the cartridge insertion slots; the ink may stain your skin.
•
If you mix the colours by installing an ink cartridge in the wrong position, the LCD shows [Wrong Ink
Colour].
Check which ink cartridges are not matched by colour to their ink cartridge positions and move them to
their proper positions.
•
When 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.

fingertip over the glass to see if you can feel anything on it. If you feel dirt or debris, clean the glass again
concentrating on that area. You may need to repeat the cleaning process three or four times. To test, make
a copy after each cleaning attempt.
When there is a spot of dirt or correction fluid on the glass strip, the printed sample shows a vertical line.

Home > Appendix > Information Regarding Recycled Paper
Information Regarding Recycled Paper
•
Recycled paper is of the same quality as paper made from original forest sources. Standards governing
modern recycled paper ensure that it meets the highest quality requirements for different printing processes.
The imaging equipment supplied by the VA signatories is suitable for using with recycled paper meeting the
EN 12281:2002 standard.
•
Purchasing recycled paper saves natural resources and promotes the circular economy. Paper is made using
cellulose fibres from wood. Collecting and recycling paper extends the life of fibres over multiple life cycles,
making the best use of the resources.
•
The recycled paper production process is shorter. The fibres have already been processed, so less water and
energy, and fewer chemicals are used.
•
Paper recycling has the benefit of saving carbon by diverting paper products from alternative disposal routes
such as landfill and incineration. Landfill waste emits methane gas, which has a powerful greenhouse effect.
