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:

This limited warranty is VOID if this Product

(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 1-877-BROTHER (1-877276-8437) 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 1-877-BROTHER (1-877-276-8437) or
visit www.brother-usa.com.
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 by Brother in its sole
Brother® One-Year Limited Warranty and Replacement Service
(USA Only)
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’s
Express Exchange Service Brother will send to
you a replacement Machine shipped for receipt
within two business days, 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 the 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 / FAX MACHINE
LIMITED WARRANTY
(Canada only)
Pursuant to the limited warranty of 1 year from the date of purchase for labour and parts,
Brother International Corporation (Canada) Ltd. (“Brother”), or its Authorized Service
Centres, will repair or replace (at Brother's sole discretion) this MFC/Fax machine free of
charge if defective in material or workmanship. This warranty applies only to products
purchased and used in Canada.
This limited Warranty does not include cleaning, consumables (including, without limitation, ink
cartridges, print cartridges, print rolls, thermal paper rolls, toner cartridges, drum units, OPC
belts, fixing units, print heads, paper feed rollers, transfer rolls, cleaning rollers, waste toner
packs, oil bottles) 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 if shipped out of the country.
The use of supplies or consumable items that are non-Brother products may void your warranty.
This limited warranty ceases when this machine is rented, sold, or otherwise disposed of.
Operation of the MFC/Fax 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/Fax machine must be delivered or shipped freight
prepaid by the end-user/purchaser to a “Brother” Authorized Service Centre, together with your
Canadian Proof of Purchase in the form of a Sales Receipt.
When shipping or transporting your MFC/Fax machine, please refer to your Operation
Manual for the proper packaging procedures.
For Laser units: Failure to remove the Toner Cartridge (and Toner Drum Unit, waste toner
packs or oil bottles on applicable models) during shipping or transport will cause severe
damage to the Laser MFC/Fax machine and will void the Warranty.
For inkjet units: (When shipping your Inkjet MFC/Fax machine remove the ink cartridges and
replace them with the original protective parts. If original protective parts are not available,
leave ink cartridges installed. Please avoid shipping the unit without original protective parts
or ink cartridges.) Damage to your print head resulting from packing the Inkjet MFC/Fax
machine without the ink cartridges or the protective parts will void your warranty.
Improper packaging may cause severe damage to the machine during shipping and will void
the warranty.
BROTHER DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED
INCLUDING,
WITHOUT
LIMITATIONS,
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 Centres, Distributors, Dealers, Agents or employees, shall create another warranty
or modify this warranty. The warranty states Brother's entire liability and your exclusive
remedy against Brother for any failure of the MFC/Fax machine to operate properly.
Neither Brother nor anyone else involved in the development, production, or delivery of this
MFC/Fax 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 Province to Province.
Warranty Service is available at Brother Authorized
Service Centres throughout Canada. For Technical
Assistance or for the name and location of your nearest
Authorized Service Centre call 1-877-BROTHER.

Acceptable paper and
other print media
The print quality can be affected by the type
of paper you are using 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.
Recommended print media
2
2
To get the best print quality, we suggest using
Brother paper. (See table below.)
We recommend using ‘3M Transparency
Film’ when you print on transparencies.

For best results, use the Brother paper.
„ When you print on inkjet paper (coated
paper), transparencies and photo paper,
be sure to choose the proper print media
in the ‘Basic’ tab of the printer driver or in
the Paper Type setting of the machine’s
menu.
„ When you print on Brother Photo paper,
load one extra sheets 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.

„ Store paper in its original packaging, and
keep it sealed. Keep the paper flat and
away from moisture, direct sunlight and
heat.
„ The coated side of photo paper is shiny.
Avoid touching the shiny (coated) side.
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
Windows® in the Software User’s Guide
on the CD-ROM.

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).
„ Walk-up PhotoCapture Center® printing
without using a PC 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
(including the folder inside media) on a
memory card.
„ This product supports xD-Picture Card™
Type M / Type M+ / Type H (Large
Capacity).
„ This products supports SDHC.
Please be aware of the following:
„ When printing the Print Index or Print
Image, the PhotoCapture Center® will
print all the valid images, even if one or
more images have been corrupted. The
corrupted image 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®.
„ The DPOF file on the memory cards must
be in a valid DPOF format. (See DPOF

Replacing the ink cartridges
Make sure you pull out the paper support

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.
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 strongly recommends that you do
not refill the ink cartridges provided with
your machine. We also strongly
recommend that you continue to use only
Genuine Brother Brand replacement ink
cartridges. Use or attempted use of
potentially incompatible ink and/or
cartridges in the Brother machine may
cause damage to the machine and/or may
result in unsatisfactory print quality. Our
warranty coverage does not apply to any
problem that is caused by the use of
unauthorized third party ink and/or
cartridges. To protect your investment and
obtain premium performance from the
Brother machine, we strongly recommend
the use of Genuine Brother Supplies.

Troubleshooting and Routine Maintenance
f
Gently push the ink cartridge in until it
clicks, and then close the ink cartridge
cover.
CAUTION
DO NOT take out ink cartridges if you do
not need to replace them. If you do so, it
may reduce the ink quantity and the
machine will not know the quantity of ink left
in the cartridge.
DO NOT touch the cartridge insertion slots.
If you do so, the ink may stain your skin.
If ink gets on your skin or clothing
immediately wash it off with soap or
detergent.
g
The machine will automatically reset the
ink dot counter.
Note
• If you replaced an ink cartridge, for
example Black, the LCD may ask you to
verify that it was a brand new one
(Did You Change Blck?). For each
new cartridge you installed, press a (Yes)
to automatically reset the ink dot counter
for that color. If the ink cartridge you
installed is not a brand new one, be sure
to press b (No).
• If the LCD shows No Cartridge or
Cannot Detect after you install the ink
cartridge, check that the ink cartridges are
installed properly.
If you mix the color 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.
WARNING
If ink gets in your eyes, wash them out with
water at once and call a doctor if you are
concerned.

of the LC61 replacement cartridge.
