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.

Chapter 2
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 glossy 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. (See Paper Type on page 15.)
 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.
16
Recommended print media

To get the best print quality, we suggest using
Brother paper. (See the table below.)
We recommend using “3M Transparency
Film” when you print on transparencies.

Handling and using print
media
 Store paper in its original packaging, and
keep it sealed. Keep the paper flat and
away from moisture, direct sunlight and
heat.
 Avoid touching the shiny (coated) side of
photo paper. Load photo paper with the
shiny side facing down.
 Avoid touching either side of
transparencies because they absorb
water and perspiration easily, and this
may cause decreased output quality.
Transparencies designed for laser
printers/copiers may stain your next
document. Use only transparencies
recommended for inkjet printing.

The correct Receive Mode is determined by the external devices and telephone subscriber
services (Voice Mail, Distinctive Ring, etc.) you have (or will be using) on the same line as the
Brother machine.
Will you be using a Distinctive Ring number for receiving faxes?
Brother uses the term “Distinctive Ring” but different telephone companies may have other names for this
service, such as Custom Ringing, RingMaster, Personalized Ring, Teen Ring, Ident-A-Ring, Ident-A-Call,
Data Ident-A-Call, Smart Ring and SimpleBiz Fax & Alternate Number Ringing. (See Distinctive Ring
on page 31 for instructions on setting up your machine using this feature.)
Will you be using Voice Mail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine?
If you have Voice Mail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine, there is a strong possibility
that Voice Mail and the Brother machine will conflict with each other when receiving incoming calls.
(See Voice Mail on page 30 for instructions on setting up your machine using this service.)
Will you be using a Telephone Answering Device on the same telephone line as your Brother
machine?
Your external telephone answering device (TAD) will automatically answer every call. Voice messages are
stored on the external TAD and fax messages are printed. Choose External TAD as your receive mode.
(See Connecting an external TAD (telephone answering device) on page 33.)
Will you be using your Brother machine on a dedicated fax line?
Your machine automatically answers every call as a fax. Choose Fax Only as your receive mode.
(See Fax Only on page 27.)
Will you be using your Brother machine on the same line as your telephone?
Do you want to receive voice calls and faxes automatically?
The Fax/Tel receive mode is used when sharing the Brother machine and your telephone on the
same line. Choose Fax/Tel as your receive mode. (See Fax/Tel on page 27.)
Important Note: You cannot receive voice messages on either Voice Mail or an answering machine
with the Fax/Tel mode.
Do you expect to receive very few faxes?
Choose Manual as your receive mode. You control the telephone line and must answer every call
yourself. (See Manual on page 27.)

If the call is a fax, then your machine will
receive it; however, if it is a voice call the
machine will sound the F/T Ring (a fast
double-ring) for the time you have set in the
F/T Ring Time setting. If you hear the
F/T Ring it means that you have a voice caller
on the line.
Because the F/T Ring is made by the

Your machine supports the Caller ID and
Distinctive Ring subscriber telephone
services that some telephone companies
offer.
Features like Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Call
Waiting/Caller ID, RingMaster, answering
services, alarm systems or other custom
features on one telephone line may create
problems with the operation of your machine.
If you have Voice Mail on your telephone line,
please read the following carefully.
Voice Mail
If you have Voice Mail on the same telephone
line as your Brother machine, Voice Mail and
the Brother machine will conflict with each
other when receiving incoming calls.
For example, if your Voice Mail is set to
answer after 4 rings and your Brother
machine is set to answer after 2 rings, then
your Brother machine will answer first. This
will prevent callers from being able to leave a
message in your Voice Mail.
Similarly, if your Brother machine is set to
answer after 4 rings and your Voice Mail is set
to answer after 2 rings, then your Voice Mail
will answer first. This will prevent your Brother
machine from being able to receive an
incoming fax, since Voice Mail cannot
transfer the incoming fax back to the Brother
machine.
30

To avoid conflicts between your Brother
machine and your Voice Mail service, do one
of the following:
Get the Distinctive Ring service from your
telephone company. Distinctive Ring is a
feature of your Brother machine that allows a
person with one line to receive fax and voice
calls through two different phone numbers on
that one line. Brother uses the term
“Distinctive Ring,” but telephone companies
market the service under a variety of names,
such as Custom Ringing, Personalized Ring,
Smart Ring, RingMaster, Ident-A-Ring, IdentA-Call, Data Ident-A-Call, Teen Ring, and
SimpleBiz Fax & Alternate Number Ringing.
This service establishes a second telephone
number on the same line as your existing
telephone number, and each number has its
own ring pattern. Typically, the original
number rings with the standard ring pattern
and is used for receiving voice calls, and the
second number rings with a different ring
pattern and is used for receiving faxes. (See
Distinctive Ring on page 31.)
OR
Set your Brother machine’s Receive Mode to
“Manual”. Manual Mode requires that you
answer every incoming call if you want to be
able to receive a fax. If the incoming call is a
telephone call, then complete the call as you
normally would. If you hear fax sending tones
you must transfer the call to the Brother
machine. (See Using external and extension
telephones on page 36.) Unanswered fax
and voice calls will go to your Voice Mail. (To
set the machine in MANUAL Mode, see
Choose the correct Receive Mode
on page 25.)
Telephone services and external devices
Distinctive Ring

If you have Voice Mail on the telephone line
that you will install your new machine on,
there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail
and the machine will conflict with each other
while receiving incoming calls. However, the
Distinctive Ring feature allows you to use
more than one number on your line, so
both Voice Mail and the machine can work
together without any problems. If each one
has a separate telephone number, neither will
interfere with the other's operations.
Distinctive Ring is a function of your Brother
machine that allows a person with one line to
receive fax and voice calls through two
different phone numbers on that one line.
Brother uses the term “Distinctive Ring”, but
telephone companies market the service
under a variety of names, such as Smart
Ring, Ring Master or Ident-a-Ring. This
service establishes a second telephone
number on the same line as your existing
telephone number, and each number has its
own ring pattern. Typically, the original
number rings with the standard ring pattern
and is used for receiving voice calls, and the
second number rings with a different ring
pattern and is used for receiving faxes.
If you decide to get the Distinctive Ring
service from the telephone company, you will
need to follow the directions on next page to
“register” the new Distinctive Ring pattern
they give you. This is so your machine can
recognize its incoming calls.
Note
Note
• You must pay for your telephone
company's Distinctive Ring service before
you program the machine to work with it.
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.
• Please call your telephone company for
availability and rates.
What does your telephone company's
“Distinctive Ring” do?
Do you have Voice Mail?
6
Your telephone company's Distinctive Ring
service allows you to have more than one
number on the same telephone line. If you
need more than one telephone number, it
is cheaper than paying for an extra line.
Each telephone number has its own
distinctive ring pattern, so you will know
which telephone number is ringing. This is
one way you can have a separate telephone
number for your machine.
What does Brother's “Distinctive
Ring” do?
6
The Brother 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
telephone number on your line can just
receive faxes.

Chapter 6
Before you choose the ring pattern to
register
You can only register one Distinctive Ring
pattern with the machine. Some ring patterns
cannot be registered. The ring patterns below
are supported by your Brother machine.
Register the one your telephone company
gives you.

(normal pattern)
Note
Ring Pattern #1 is often called Short-Short
and is the most commonly used.
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.
6
Registering the Distinctive Ring
pattern
Very Important !
After you have set the Distinctive Ring feature
to On, your Distinctive Ring number will
receive faxes automatically. The receive
mode is automatically set to Manual and you
cannot change it to another receive mode
while Distinctive Ring is set to On. This
ensures the Brother machine will only answer
the Distinctive Ring number and not interfere
when your main telephone number is called.

 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.

Connecting an external
TAD (telephone
answering device)
6
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.
• 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 your machine,
and use that number as a fax number. The
recommended setting is at least four rings
on the external TAD when you have the
telephone company's Distinctive Ring
Service. You cannot use the Toll Saver
setting.
33

Chapter 6
• If You Do Not Subscribe to Distinctive
Ring Service:
You must plug your TAD into the EXT.
jack of your machine. If your TAD is
plugged into a wall jack, both your
machine and the TAD will try to control the
telephone line. (See the illustration
below.)
• Before you connect the external TAD,
remove the protective cap (2) from the
EXT. jack on the machine.
Connections
The external TAD must be plugged into the
jack labeled EXT. Your machine cannot work
properly if you plug the TAD into a wall jack
(unless you are using Distinctive Ring).
a
Plug the telephone line cord from the
telephone wall jack into the jack labeled
LINE.
b
Remove the protective cap (1) from the
jack labeled EXT, and then plug the
telephone line cord from the external
TAD into the EXT. jack. (Make sure this
cord is connected to the TAD at the
TAD's telephone line jack, and not its
handset jack.)

a
You can connect a separate telephone to

b
c
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.)
Connect the telephone line cord to the jack
labeled EXT.
Before you connect the external telephone,
remove the protective cap (3) from the EXT.
jack on the machine.
Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
6
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 l 5 1 and Start.”
1
Note
2
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.
Multi-line connections (PBX)
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.

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 Telephone Answer Code # 5 1.

the fax by pressing Black Start and choose
Receive.
You should assume that you're receiving a
manual fax.

If your non-brother cordless telephone is
connected to the EXT. jack of the machine
and you typically carry the cordless handset
elsewhere, it is easier to answer calls during
the Ring Delay.
If you answer a fax call at an extension

receive the fax by pressing the Fax Receive
Code l 5 1.
If you answer a call and no one is on
the line:

Routine maintenance
Replacing the ink
cartridges
Your machine is equipped with an ink dot
counter. The ink dot counter automatically
monitors the level of ink in each of the
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.
A
a
Open the ink cartridge cover.
If one or more of the ink cartridges have
reached the end of their life, the LCD
shows B&W Print Only or
Cannot Print.
b
Press the lock release lever as shown to
release the cartridge for the color
indicated on the LCD. Remove the
cartridge from the machine.
A
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 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.
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
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.
A
c
Open the new ink cartridge bag for the
color shown on the LCD, and then take
out the ink cartridge.
51
d
Turn the green knob on the protective
yellow cap clockwise until it clicks to
release the vacuum seal, then remove
the cap (1).
f
Gently push in the ink cartridge until it
clicks, and then close the ink cartridge
cover.
g
The machine will automatically reset the
ink dot counter.
1
Note
e
Each color has its own correct position.
Insert the ink cartridge in the direction of
the arrow on the label.
• If you replaced an ink cartridge, for
example Black, the LCD may ask you to
verify that it was a brand new one (for
example, Did You Change
Black).
For each new cartridge you installed,
press 1 (Yes) to automatically reset the
ink dot counter for that color. If the ink
cartridge you installed is not a brand new
one, be sure to press 2 (No).
• If the LCD shows No Ink Cartridge or
Cannot Detect after you install the ink
cartridges, check that the ink cartridges
are installed properly.
CAUTION
If ink gets in your eyes, wash it out with
water at once and call a doctor if you are
concerned.
52
Routine maintenance
IMPORTANT
• DO NOT take out ink cartridges if you do
not need to replace them. If you do so, it
may reduce the ink quantity and the
machine will not know the quantity of ink
left in the cartridge.
• DO NOT touch the cartridge insertion
slots. If you do so, the ink may stain your
skin.
• If ink gets on your skin or clothing
immediately wash it off with soap or
detergent.
• If you mix the colors by installing an ink
cartridge in the wrong position, clean the
print head several times after correcting
the cartridge installation.
• Once you open an ink cartridge, install it in
the machine and use it up within six
months of installation. Use unopened ink
cartridges by the expiration date written on
the cartridge package.
• DO NOT dismantle or tamper with the ink
cartridge, this can cause the ink to leak out
of the cartridge.

Error and Maintenance messages
As with any sophisticated office product, errors may occur and consumable items may need to be
replaced. If this happens, your machine identifies the problem and shows a message. The most
common error and maintenance messages are shown below.
You can correct most errors and clear routine maintenance messages by yourself. If you need
more help, the Brother Solutions Center offers the latest FAQs and troubleshooting tips.

Error Message
Cause
Action
B&W Print Only
One or more of the color ink
cartridges have reached the end
of their life.
You can use the machine in black
& white mode for approximately
four weeks depending on the
number of pages you print.
While this message appears on
the LCD, each operation works in
the following way:
 Printing
If you click Grayscale in the
Advanced tab of the printer
driver you can use the machine
as a black & white printer.
 Copying
If the paper type is set to
Plain Paper or
Inkjet Paper you can
make copies in black & white.
 Faxing
If the paper type is set to
Plain Paper or
Inkjet Paper, the machine
will receive and print the faxes
in black & white.
If a sending machine has a
color fax, the machine’s
“handshake” will ask that the
fax be sent as black & white.
If the paper type is set to
Other Glossy, Brother BP71 or
Brother BP61 the machine will stop
all print operations. If you unplug the
machine, or take out the ink cartridge,
you cannot use the machine until you
change to a new ink cartridge.
Replace the ink cartridges. (See Replacing
the ink cartridges on page 51.)

One or more of the ink cartridges
have reached the end of their life.
The machine will stop all print
operations. While memory is
available, black and white faxes
will be stored in the memory. If a
sending machine has a color fax,
the machine's “handshake” will
ask that the fax be sent as black &

the ability to convert it, the color
fax will be stored in the memory
as a black & white fax.
Replace the ink cartridges. (See Replacing
the ink cartridges on page 51.)

Action
Ink Absorber Full
The ink absorber box or flushing
box is full. These components are
periodic maintenance items that
may require replacement after a
period of time to ensure optimum
performance from your Brother
machine. The need to replace
these items and the time period
before replacement is dependent
on the number of purges and
flushes required to clean the ink
system. These boxes acquire
amounts of ink during the different
purging and flushing operations.
The number of times a machine
purges and flushes for cleaning
varies depending on different
situations. For example,
frequently powering the machine
on and off will cause numerous
cleaning cycles since the machine
automatically cleans upon power
up. The use of non-Brother ink
may cause frequent cleanings
because non-Brother ink could
cause poor print quality which is
resolved by cleaning. The more
cleaning the machine requires the
faster these boxes will fill up.
The ink absorber box or flushing box will
need to be replaced. Contact Brother
Customer Service or a Brother Authorized
Service Center to have your machine
serviced. (See Brother numbers
on page i.)
Other reasons for cleaning are:
1
Machine automatically cleans after
clearing a printer jam.
2
Machine automatically cleans after
sitting idle for more than 45 days
(infrequent use).
Note
Repairs resulting from the use
of non-Brother supplies may
not be covered under the
stated product warranty.

Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
Make sure your machine has a dial tone by pressing the Hook key. If you hear
static or interference on your fax line, please contact your local telephone
company.
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into
the telephone wall jack and the LINE jack of the machine. If you subscribe to DSL
or VoIP services, please contact your service provider for connection instructions.
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 Choose the correct Receive Mode on page 25.)
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 automatically receive incoming faxes and voice callers will be able to
leave a message on your answering machine.
If your Brother machine shares the line with a Voice Mail subscriber service,
please see Voice Mail on page 30.
If your Brother machine is on a line with the Distinctive Ring subscriber service,
please see Distinctive Ring on page 31.
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 automatically receive faxes and
produce a pseudo/double-ring to alert you to answer voice calls.
If you do not want your Brother machine to automatically answer any incoming
faxes, 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 answer mode is set to Fax Only or Fax/Tel, reduce the ring delay to
1 ring. (See Ring Delay on page 28.)
 If the answer mode is set to External TAD, reduce the number of rings
programmed on your answering machine to 2.
 If the answer mode is set to Manual, DO NOT adjust the ring delay setting.
B
Have someone send you a test fax:
 If you received the test fax successfully, your machine is operating properly.
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.

Receiving Faxes (continued)
Difficulty
Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
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 Connecting an external TAD (telephone answering device)
on page 33.)
(continued)
1
Plug the telephone line cord directly from the wall telephone jack to your
Brother machine’s LINE jack.
2
Remove the protective cap from your Brother machine’s EXT. jack, and then
plug the telephone line cord from your answering machine into the EXT. jack.
3
Set your answering machine to answer within 4 rings.
If you are having problems receiving faxes or voice messages, set your
answering machine to answer within 2 or 3 rings.
4
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 Fax Receive Code for people
sending manual faxes. For example: “After the beep, leave a message or
press l 5 1 and Start to send a fax.”
5
Set your answering machine to answer calls.
6
Set your Brother machine’s Receive Mode to External TAD. (See Choose
the correct Receive Mode on page 25.)
Make sure your Brother machine’s Easy Receive feature is turned On. Easy
Receive is a feature that allows you to receive a fax even if you have answered
the call on an external or extension telephone. (See Easy Receive on page 29.)
If you often get transmission errors due to possible interference on the telephone
line, try changing the Compatibility setting to Basic(for VoIP).
(See Telephone line interference / VoIP on page 73.)
Sending Faxes
Difficulty
Suggestions
Cannot send a fax.
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into
the telephone wall jack and the LINE jack of the machine.
Make sure that the FAX
key is illuminated.
Ask the other party to check that the receiving machine has paper.
Print the Transmission Verification Report and check for an error. (See Reports in
chapter 6 in the Advanced User’s Guide.)
Transmission Verification Report
says “RESULT:NG”.
There is probably temporary noise or static on the line. Try sending the fax again.
If you send a PC FAX message and get “RESULT:NG” on the Transmission
Verification Report, your machine may be out of memory. If the problem continues,
ask the telephone company to check your telephone line.
If you often get transmission errors due to possible interference on the telephone
line, try changing the menu setting of Compatibility to Basic(for VoIP).
(See Telephone line interference / VoIP on page 73.)
Sent faxes are blank.

Make sure you are loading the document properly. (See Loading documents
on page 20.)
Troubleshooting
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 in appendix A in the Advanced User’s Guide.)
Vertical black lines when sending.
(MFC-J415W only)
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 in appendix A
in the Advanced User’s Guide.)
Handling Incoming Calls
Difficulty
Suggestions
The machine “Hears” a voice as a
CNG Tone.
If Easy Receive 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 Easy Receive to Off.
(See Easy Receive on page 29.)
Sending a fax call to the machine.
If you answered on an extension telephone, press your Fax Receive Code (the
factory setting is l 5 1). If you answered on the external telephone (connected to
the EXT. jack), press Start to receive the fax. When your machine answers, hang
up.
Custom features on a single line.
If you have Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, Voice Mail, 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.

When returning calls from the Caller ID
history your machine will automatically dial
“1” plus the area code for all calls. If your local
dialing plan requires that the “1” not be used
for calls within your area code enter your area
code in this setting. With the area code
setting, calls returned from the Caller ID
history to your area code will be dialed using
10 digits (area code + 7-digit number). If your
dialing plan does not follow the standard 1 +
area code + 7-digit number dialing system for
calling outside your area code, you may
experience problems returning calls
automatically from the Caller ID history. If this
is not the procedure followed by your dialing

Special line considerations
Roll-over telephone lines
5
5
A roll-over telephone 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 telephone line in a
preset order.
Your 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 machine on any of the other numbers;
when the other lines are busy and a second
fax call is received, the fax call will be sent to
a line that does not have a fax machine. Your
machine will work best on a dedicated
line.
Two-line telephone system
A two-line telephone system is nothing more
than two separate telephone numbers on the
same wall outlet. The two telephone numbers
can be on separate jacks (RJ11) or mixed into
one jack (RJ14). Your 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 telephone and see if it can access
both lines. If it can, you must separate the line
for your machine. (See Easy Receive in
chapter 5 in the Basic User’s Guide.)
5
Dialing and storing numbers
Converting telephone wall outlets
5
There are three ways to convert to an RJ11
jack. The first two ways may require help 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
telephone 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 your
machine is on Line 1, plug the machine into
L1 of the triplex adapter. If your machine is on
Line 2, plug it into L2 of the triple adapter.
Triplex Adapter
b
Plug one end of the telephone line cord
for your machine into the L2 jack of the
triplex adapter. Plug the other end into
the LINE jack on the back of the
machine.
c
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.
d
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
machine.

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

You can keep two-line telephones on other
wall outlets as always. There are two ways to
add a two-line telephone to the 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.
Put the two-line TAD and the two-line
telephone next to your machine.

Dialing access codes and
credit card numbers
Note
5
Sometimes, you may want to choose from
several long distance carriers when you send
a fax. Rates may vary depending on the time
and destination. To take advantage of low
rates, you can store the access codes of longdistance carriers and credit card numbers as
Speed Dial numbers. You can store these
long dialing sequences by dividing them and
setting them up as separate Speed Dial
numbers in any combination. You can even
include manual dialing using the dial pad.
(See Storing Speed Dial numbers in
chapter 7 in the Basic User’s Guide.)
If you must wait for another dial tone or
signal at any point in the dialing sequence,
create a pause in the number by pressing
Redial/Pause. Each key press adds a
3.5-second delay.
For example, you might have stored “555“ on
Speed Dial: 03 and “7000“ on Speed Dial: 02.
You can use them both to dial “555-7000” if
you press the following keys:

Your machine is designed to be compatible
with modern digital camera image files,
memory cards; 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).
 Direct PhotoCapture Center® printing
must be performed separately from
PhotoCapture Center® operations using
the PC. (Simultaneous operation is not
available.)
 The machine can read up to 999 files on a
memory card.
 The DPOF file on the memory cards must
be in a valid DPOF format. (See DPOF
printing on page 33.)

 When printing an index or image, the
PhotoCapture Center® will print all 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.
