BROTHER MULTIFUNCTION CENTER/FACSIMILE MACHINE
LIMITED WARRANTY
(For Canada Only)
Pursuant to this limited warranty of 1 year from the date of purchase for labour and parts,
Brother International Corporation (Canada) Ltd. (“Brother”), or its Authorized Service
Centers, will repair this MFC/Facsimile machine free of charge if defective in material or
workmanship. This Limited Warranty does not include cleaning, consumables
(including, without limitation, print cartridges, print head, toner and drum) or damage
caused by accident, neglect, misuse or improper installation or operation, any damage
caused from service, maintenance, modifications, or tampering by anyone other than a
Brother Authorized Service Representative, or from the use of supplies or consumable
items that are non-Brother products. Operation of the MFC/Facsimile machine in excess
of the specifications or with the Serial Number or Rating Label removed shall be deemed
abuse and all repairs thereafter shall be the sole liability of the end-user/purchaser. In
order to obtain warranty service, the MFC/Facsimile machine must be delivered or
shipped freight prepaid by the end user/purchaser to a “Brother” Authorized Service
Center, together with your Proof of Purchase in the form of a Sales Receipt.
For laser products: Failure to remove the Toner Cartridge (and Toner Drum Unit on
applicable models) during shipping will cause severe damage to the MFC/Facsimile and
will VOID the Warranty. (Refer to your Operation Manual for proper packaging.)
For ink-jet products: Do not remove the ink cartridges during shipping. Damage to your
print head resulting from packing without the ink cartridges will VOID your warranty.
(Refer to your Operation Manual for proper packaging.)
BROTHER DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED
INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, EXCEPT TO
THE EXTENT THAT ANY WARRANTIES IMPLIED BY LAW CANNOT BE VALIDLY

No oral or written information, advice or representation provided by Brother, its
Authorized Service Centers, Distributors, Dealers, Agents or employees, shall create
another warranty or modify this warranty. This warranty states Brother’s entire liability
and your exclusive remedy against Brother for any failure of the MFC/Facsimile machine
to operate properly.
Neither Brother nor anyone else involved in the development, production, or delivery of
this MFC/Facsimile machine shall be liable for any indirect, incidental, special,
consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages, including lost profits, arising from the
use of or inability to use the product, even if advised by the end user/purchaser of the
possibility of such damages. Since some Provinces do not allow the above limitation of
liability, such limitation may not apply to you.
This Limited Warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights
which vary from Providence to Providence.

About Your Machines
If you’re a first-time MFC user, fax operation might seem a little mysterious.
Soon, you’ll recognize the unusual fax tones on your phone line, and be able to
send and receive faxes easily.
Custom Features
Do You Have Voice Mail on the Phone Line?
If you have Voice Mail on the phone line on which you will install your new
MFC, there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail and the MFC will conflict
with each other while receiving incoming calls.
Why Should There Be Trouble?
Since both machines and Voice Mail pick up the line at the number of rings you
have set, each of them has the ability to keep the other from receiving calls. For
example, if your Voice Mail is set to answer after two rings and your MFC is set
to answer after four, your Voice Mail will keep your MFC from receiving faxes.
If you set Voice Mail and the Brother MFC to answer at the same number of
rings, there is no way of knowing which one will answer first. It is important to
remember that neither Voice Mail nor the MFC can pass the call back to the
other after the call has been answered.
How Can You Avoid Possible Problems?
A very good way to avoid problems like the one mentioned previously is to get
a second phone number on your present phone line. Many people with Voice
Mail opt for this choice, which is called “Distinctive Ring”, and they are very
satisfied with it. For details about this type of custom service, please See
Distinctive Ring, page 8-1.
Another way to avoid possible problem is to replace your Voice Mail with an
answering MFC. Your Brother MFC is designed to work in tandem with an
answering MFC or TAD (telephone answering device). (See Connecting an
External TAD (Telephone Answering Device), page 2-9.)
Fax Tones and Handshake
When someone is sending a fax, the MFC sends fax calling tones (CNG
tones)—soft, intermittent beeps at 4-second intervals. You’ll hear them after
you dial and press Fax Start; they continue for about 60 seconds after dialing.
During that time, the sending MFC must begin the “handshake” with the
receiving machine. Each time you use automatic procedures to send a fax, you
are sending CNG tones over the phone line. You’ll soon learn to listen for these
soft beeps each time you answer a phone on your fax line, so you will know if
you are receiving a fax message.
INTRODUCTION
1-5
The receiving fax responds with fax receiving tones—loud, chirping sounds. A
receiving fax chirps for about 60 seconds over the phone line, and the LCD
shows RECEIVING. If your MFC is set to the FAX mode, it will answer every
call automatically with fax receiving tones. Even if the other party hangs up,
your MFC continues to send the “chirps” for about 60 seconds, and the screen
continues to show RECEIVING.
The fax “handshake” is the time in which the sending machine’s CNG tones and
the receiving machines “chirps” overlap. This must be for at least 2 to 4 seconds,
so the fax machines can understand how each is sending and receiving the fax.
The handshake cannot begin until the call is answered, and the CNG tones last
for only about 60 seconds after the number is dialed. Therefore, it’s important
for the receiving MFC to answer the call in as few rings as possible.
When you have an external telephone answering device (TAD) on your fax
line, your TAD will determine the number of rings before the call is
answered. Pay special attention to the directions for connecting a TAD to your
MFC in Chapter 2, Assembly and Connections.
ECM (Error Correction Mode)
ECM is a way for the MFC to check the integrity of a fax transmission while it
is in progress. ECM transmissions are possible only between machines that both
have the ECM feature. If they do, you may send and receive fax messages that
are continuously checked for their integrity. Sufficient memory must be
available in your MFC for this feature to work.

ASSEMBLY AND CONNECTIONS
2-1
Choosing a Location
Place your MFC on a flat stable surface, such as a desk. Select a place that is
free of vibration and shocks. Place the MFC near a telephone jack and a
standard, grounded power outlet. Choose a location where the temperature
remains between 50°F and 90.5°F (10°–32.5°C).
Avoid placing your MFC in a high-traffic area. Do not place near heaters, air
conditioners, water, chemicals, or refrigerators. Do not expose the MFC to
direct sunlight, excessive heat, moisture, or dust. Do not connect your MFC to
electrical outlets controlled by wall switches or automatic timers. Disruption of
power can wipe out information in the MFC’s memory. Do not connect your
MFC to electrical outlets on the same circuit as large appliances or other
equipment that might disrupt the power supply. Avoid interference sources,
such as speakers or the base units of cordless phones.

WARNING
■ Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines. Never touch telephone
wires or terminals that are not insulated unless the telephone line has been
disconnected at the wall jack. Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
Never install a telephone jack in a wet location unless the jack is specifically designed
for a wet location.
■ Lightning and power surges can damage this product! We recommend that you use a
quality surge protection device on the AC power line and on the telephone line, or
unplug the lines during a lightning storm.
■ For PLUG CABLE EQUIPMENT, the socket-outlet should be installed near the
equipment and should be easily accessible.
■ To reduce the risk of shock or fire, use only a No. 26 AWG or larger
telecommunication line cord.

WARNING
=
■ The MFC must be grounded using a 3-prong plug.
■ Since the MFC is grounded through the power outlet, protect yourself from
potentially hazardous electrical conditions on the telephone line by keeping the
power to your MFC on when you connect it to a telephone line. When you want
to move your MFC, protect yourself by disconnecting the telephone line first,
and then the power cord.
■ Lightning and power surges can damage this product! We recommend that you
use a quality surge protection device on the AC power line as well as on the
telephone line, or unplug the lines during a lightning storm.
■ Do not touch the rollers at the paper exit.

ASSEMBLY AND CONNECTIONS
Connections
Connecting an External Telephone
Although your MFC does not have a handset, you can connect a separate
telephone (or telephone answering device) directly to the MFC.
Connect the modular plug on the telephone’s line cord to the jack labeled EXT.
on the left side of the MFC.
Whenever this phone (or TAD) is in use, the LCD shows TELEPHONE.
Connecting an External TAD
(Telephone Answering Device)
Sequence
You might choose to connect an answering system. However, when you have an
external TAD on the same telephone line as the MFC, the TAD answers all calls. The
MFC “listens” for fax calling (CNG) tones. If it hears them, the MFC takes over the
call and receives the fax. If it doesn’t hear CNG tones, the MFC lets the TAD continue
playing your outgoing message so your caller can leave you a voice message.
The TAD must answer within five rings (the recommended setting is two rings).
The MFC cannot hear CNG tones until the TAD has answered the call, and with
five rings there are only 8–10 seconds of CNG tones left for the fax
“handshake.” Make sure you carefully follow the instructions in this manual for
recording your outgoing message. We do not recommend using the toll saver
feature on your external answering machine if it exceeds five rings.
If you do not receive all your faxes, you must reset your external TAD to four
rings.
Connections
The external TAD must be plugged into the left side of the MFC in the jack labeled
EXT. Your MFC cannot work properly if you plug the TAD into a wall jack.
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 MFC, use that number as a fax number and have
set your MFC’s Receive mode to MANUAL. The recommended setting is
three or four rings on the external TAD when you have the telephone
company’s Distinctive Ring service.
If You Do NOT Subscribe to Distinctive Ring Service:
You must plug your TAD into the EXT. jack of your MFC. If your TAD is
plugged into a wall jack, both your MFC and the TAD will try to control the
phone line. (See illustration on page 2-10.)
ASSEMBLY AND CONNECTIONS
2-9
Do not connect a TAD elsewhere on the same phone line.
illustration
1 Plug the telephone line cord from the wall jack into the left side of the MFC, in
the jack labeled LINE.
2 Plug the telephone line cord from your TAD into the left side of the MFC, in the
jack labeled EXT. (Make sure this cord is connected to the TAD at the TAD’s
telephone line jack, and not its telephone set jack.)
3 Set your external TAD to four rings or less. (The MFC’s Ring Delay setting does
not apply).
4 Record the outgoing message. (See below.)
5 Set the Receive mode to TAD:ANSWER MACH.
Recording Outgoing Message (OGM) on External TAD
Timing is important in recording this message. The message sets up the ways to
handle both manual and automatic fax reception.
1 Record 5 seconds of silence at the beginning of your message. (This allows your
MFC time to listen for the fax CNG tones of automatic transmissions before
they stop.)
2 Limit your speaking to 20 seconds. (See Easy Receive, page 5-3.)
3 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 5 1 and Start.”
We recommend beginning your OGM with an initial 5-second silence because
the MFC cannot hear fax tones over a resonant or loud voice. You may try
omitting this pause, but if your MFC has trouble receiving, then you must
rerecord the OGM to include it.

ASSEMBLY AND CONNECTIONS
Special Line Considerations
Roll Over Phone Lines
A roll over phone system is a group of two or more separate telephone lines that
pass incoming calls to each other if they are busy. The calls are usually passed
down or “rolled over” to the next available phone line in a preset order.
Your MFC 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 MFC on any of the other
numbers; when the other lines are busy and a second fax call is received, the fax
call would be transferred to a line that does not have a fax machine. Your MFC
will work best on a dedicated line.
Two-Line Phone System
A two-line phone system is nothing more than two separate phone numbers on
the same wall outlet. The two phone numbers can be on separate jacks (RJ11)
or combined into one jack (RJ14). Your MFC must be plugged into an RJ11
jack. RJ11 and RJ14 jacks may be equal in size and appearance and both may
contain four wires (black, red, green, yellow). To test the type of jack, plug in a
two-line phone and see if it can access both lines. If it can, you must separate the
line for your MFC.
Converting Telephone Wall Outlets
There are three ways to convert to an RJ11 receptacle. The first two ways may
require assistance from the telephone company. You can change the wall
outlets from one RJ14 jack to two RJ11 jacks. Or, you can have an RJ11 wall
outlet installed and slave or jump one of the phone numbers to it.
The third way is the easiest: Buy a triplex adapter. You can plug a triplex adapter
into an RJ14 outlet. It separates the wires into two separate RJ11 jacks (Line 1,
Line 2) and a third RJ14 jack (Lines 1 and 2). If your MFC is on Line 1, plug
the MFC into L1 of the triplex adapter. If your MFC is on Line 2, plug it into L2
of the triplex adapter.

Installing MFC, 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 MFC must be isolated on one line at both
the wall jack and at the TAD. The most common connection is to put the MFC
on Line 2, which is our assumption in the following steps. The back of the twoline 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 MFC and two for your external two-line TAD. You will need a fourth
line cord if you add a two-line telephone.
1 Place the two-line TAD and the two-line telephone next to your MFC.
2 Plug one end of the telephone line cord for your MFC into the L2 jack of the
triplex adapter. Plug the other end into the LINE jack on the left side of the
MFC.
3 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.
4 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 MFC.

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

ASSEMBLY AND CONNECTIONS
Multi-Line Connections (PBX)
Most offices use a central telephone system. While it is often relatively simple
to connect the MFC to a key system or a PBX (Private Branch Exchange), we
suggest that you contact the company that installed your telephone system and
ask them to connect the MFC for you. It is advisable to have a separate line for
the MFC. You can then leave the MFC in FAX mode to receive faxes any time
of day or night.
If the MFC is to be connected to a multi-line system, ask your installer to
connect the unit to the last line on the system. This prevents the unit from being
activated each time a telephone call is received.
As with all fax units, this MFC must be connected to a two wire system.
If your line has more than two wires, proper connection of the MFC cannot be
made.
If You are Installing the MFC to Work with a PBX:
1 It is not guaranteed that the unit will operate correctly under all circumstances
with a PBX. Any cases of difficulty should be reported first to the company that
handles your PBX.
2 If all incoming calls will be answered by a switchboard operator, it is
recommended that the Receive mode be set to MANUAL. All incoming calls
should initially be regarded as telephone calls.
3 The MFC may be used with either pulse or tone dialing telephone service.
Custom Features on Your Phone Line
If you have Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, RingMaster, an
answering service, an alarm system, or other custom feature on one phone line,
it may create a problem with the operation of your MFC. (See I have difficulty
with custom features on a single line, page 21-7.)

Setting F/T Ring Time (For FAX/TEL Mode Only)
If you set the receive mode to FAX/TEL, you’ll need to determine how long the
machine will send you its special double-ring when you have a voice call. This
ringing happens after the initial ringing from the phone company. Only the
machine rings, for 20, 30, 40 or 70 seconds; no other phones on the same line
ring the special double-ring. However, you can answer the call on any extension
phone (in a separate wall jack) on the same line as the machine. (See Operation
from Extension Telephone, page 5-5.)

Now, when a call comes in and the
machine is set to FAX/TEL mode, all
phones on this line will ring the number of times you selected in Ring Delay.
You can let the machine pick up and detect if it’s a fax or voice call. If it’s a fax
call, the machine prints the fax. If it’s a voice call, the machine signals you with
a double-ring for the length of time you selected in F/T Ring Time.
Even if the caller hangs up during the double-ringing, the machine continues
for the set time.
Easy Receive
When you use this feature, you don’t have to press Fax Start when you answer a
fax call. Selecting ON allows the MFC to receive fax calls automatically, even if
you lift the handset of an extension or external phone. When you see RECEIVING
on the LCD or when you hear “chirps” through the handset of an extension phone,
just replace the handset and let your MFC do the rest. Selecting OFF means you’ll
have to activate the MFC yourself, by lifting the handset of an external or extension
phone, and then pressing Fax Start on the MFC or by pressing 5 1 if you are
not at your MFC. (See Operation from Extension Telephone, page 5-5.)
If Easy Receive is OFF and an original is in the ADF, lift the handset of an
external or extension phone, press Fax Start and 2 to activate the MFC.
If you’ve set the feature to ON, but your MFC doesn’t automatically connect a
fax call when you lift a handset, press the Fax Receive code 5 1 on the
external or extension phone.
If you send faxes from a computer on the same phone line and the MFC

Operation from Extension Telephone
If you answer a fax call on an extension phone (or on an external phone in the
EXT. jack), you can make your MFC take over by using the Fax Receive Code.
When you press the Fax Receive Code 5 1, the MFC starts to receive a fax.
(See Easy Receive, page 5-3.)
If the machine answers a voice call and double-rings for you to take over, use
the Telephone Answer Code # 5 1 to take the call at an extension phone.
If you answer a call at an extension or external phone, and no one is on the line,
assume you’re receiving a fax. At an extension phone, press 5 1, wait for fax
receiving tones (chirps), then hang up. At an external phone, press 5 1 and
wait for the phone to be disconnected (the LCD shows RECEIVING) before
you hang up. (Your caller will have to press Fax Start to send the fax.)
For FAX/TEL Mode Only
When the machine is in FAX/TEL mode, it will use the F/T Ring Time (doubleringing) to alert you to pick up a voice call. If you’re at the machine, you can lift
the handset to answer.
If you’re at an extension phone, you’ll need to lift the handset during the F/T
Ring Time and then press # 5 1 between the double rings. If no one is on the
line, or if someone wants to send you a fax, send the call back to the machine by

Access Codes and Credit Card Numbers
Sometimes you may want to choose from among several long distance carriers
when you make a call. Rates may vary depending upon the time and destination.
To take advantage of low rates, you can store the access codes or long-distance
carriers as One Touch and Speed Dial numbers. You can store these long dialing
sequences by dividing them and setting them up separately in any combination.
You can even include manual dialing using the dial pad. The combined number
will be dialed in the order you entered it, as soon as you press Fax Start. (See
Storing One Touch Dial Numbers, page 7-1.)
You store “555” on One Touch key 03 and “7000” on One Touch key 02. If
you press One Touch 03, 02 and Fax Start you will dial “555-7000”. To
temporarily change a number, you can substitute part of the number with manual
dialing using the dial pad. For example, to change the number to 555-7001 you
can press One Touch 03, and then press 7, 0, 0, 1 using the dial pad.

Broadcasting
Broadcasting is automatically sending the same fax message to multiple fax
numbers. Using the Broadcast key, you can include Groups, One Touch
locations, Speed Dial locations, plus up to 50 manually dialed numbers.
However, available memory will vary with the types of jobs in memory and the
number of locations used for broadcasting. If you broadcast to more than the
maximum locations available, you will not be able to set up transmissions using
dual access and the timer. (See Setting Up Groups for Broadcasting, page 7-2.)
The easiest way to broadcast is to press Group keys, you can include One Touch,
Speed Dial, and manually, dialed numbers in the same broadcast. You must
press Broadcast between each of these locations. Use the Telephone Index to
help you choose the numbers easily.
After the broadcast is completed, a Broadcast Report will be printed
automatically to let you know the results.
■ To stop the broadcasting in progress, press Stop/Exit. The LCD asks if you
want to cancel all locations or only the location that is being sent.
■ Enter the long dialing sequence numbers as you normally would. Keep in mind
that each key counts as one location, so the number of locations you can call
becomes limited.
■ If the line is busy or for other reasons a connection could not be made while
broadcasting, the MFC will redial the number automatically.
■ If the memory is full, press Stop/Exit to abort the job; or, if more than one page
has been scanned, press Fax Start to send the portion that is in the memory.
1 Place the original face up in the ADF, or face down on the scanner glass.

Custom Feature
Your MFC supports the Distinctive Ring and Caller ID telephone services
offered by some telephone companies.
If you have Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, RingMaster, an
answering service, or on alarm system custom feature on your telephone line,
it may create a problem in the operation of your MFC.
If you have Voice Mail on you phone line, please read the following carefully.
Distinctive Ring
The term “Distinctive Ring” is used by Brother to identify a phone company
service that is given many names, depending on the telephone company you are
using. For example, this service may be called SmartRing, RingMaster, TeenRing, Indent-a-Call or Indent-a-Ring.
What Does Your Telephone Company’s “Distinctive Ring” Do?
Your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring service allows more than one
number to be on the same phone line. If you need more than one phone
number, it is an inexpensive alternative to paying for an additional line.
Each phone number has its own distinctive ring pattern, so you will know which
phone number is ringing. This is one way you can have a separate phone number
for your MFC.
Note
Please consult your telephone company for availability and rates.
What Does Brother’s “Distinctive Ring” Do?
The Brother MFC has a Distinctive Ring feature that allows you to use your
MFC to take full advantage of the telephone company’s Distinctive Ring
service. You can dedicate the new phone number on your line to receiving only
faxes.
Note
8-1
You must purchase your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring service before
you program the Brother MFC to work with it.
TELEPHONE SERVICES
Do You Have Voice Mail?
If you have Voice Mail on the phone line you on which will install your new
MFC on, there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail and the MFC will conflict
with each other while receiving incoming calls. However, this Distinctive Ring
feature allows the use of more than one number on your line, so both Voice
Mail and the MFC can coexist peacefully. If each one has a separate phone
number, neither will interfere with the other’s work.
If you decide to get the Distinctive Ring Service from the telephone company,
you will need to follow the directions below to “register” the new Distinctive
Ring pattern they provided, so your MFC can recognize its incoming calls.
Note
You can change or cancel the Distinctive Ring pattern at any time. You can
switch it off temporarily, and later turn it back on. When you get a new fax
number, make sure you reset this setting.
Before You Choose the Ring Pattern to Register
You can register only one Distinctive Ring pattern with the MFC. Some ring
patterns cannot be registered. Please refer to some popular ring pattern examples
that will be provided from the phone company in the USA and Canada that are
shown in the Brother compatibility table below.
Ring
Pattern
Note
Rings
1
long - long
2
short - long - short
3
short - short - long
4
very long (normal pattern)
If the ring pattern the phone company provided cannot be registered by the fax,
please check for other available ring pattern choices from the phone
company.
■ The MFC will answer only calls to its registered number.
■ The first two rings are silent on the MFC. This is because the fax must «listen»
to the ring pattern (compare it to the pattern that was “registered”).
■ If you program the MFC correctly, it will recognize the registered ring pattern
of the “fax number” within 2 ring patterns and then automatically answer with
a fax tone. When the “voice number” is called, the MFC will not interrupt the
call.

Very Important
If you have Voice Mail, or a TAD (Telephone Answering Device) and want to
keep one of your phone numbers dedicated only to fax calls, you must leave the
MFC in MANUAL mode at all times while using the Distinctive Ring Feature.
Here’s why: Manual mode will never pick up a call by itself, since it is
«Neutral». When the MFC is in this «neutral» mode, the Distinctive Ring
Feature can be activated. The Distinctive Ring Feature is actually an answering
mode. So, do not activate FAX ONLY mode while using distinctive ring;
otherwise, the MFC will answer calls for all the numbers.
Registering the Distinctive Ring Pattern
1 Set the MFC to MANUAL mode.

Caller ID
The Caller ID feature of this MFC lets you use the Caller ID subscriber service
offered by many local phone companies. This service provides the LCD, the
name or telephone number of your caller on the LCD as the line rings. (See
Printing Caller ID List, page 8-4.)
After a few rings, the LCD shows the telephone number of your caller (or name,
if available). Once you pick up the handset, the Caller ID information disappears
from the LCD, but the call information remains stored in the Caller ID memory.
■ You will see the first 16 characters of the number or name.
■ OUT OF AREA means call originates outside your Caller ID service area.
■ PRIVATE CALL means the caller has intentionally blocked transmission of
information.
If both the name and number are received, the LCD shows only the name. You
can print a list of Caller ID information received by your MFC.

How to Use the Brother MFC with Your DOS
Application Software
Before working with your application software that runs on DOS, check that the
Brother MFC’s name appears in the printer selection of your application
software. If the MFC is not listed, you must install the printer driver that
corresponds to HP LaserJet’s emulations.
The following table shows combinations of printer drivers and emulation mode.
To get the most out of this MFC, you should install an HP printer driver in your

Special Printing Features
Windows® Printing
The dedicated printer driver and TrueType™ compatible fonts for Microsoft®
Windows® 95/98/98SE and NT4.0/2000 Professional are available on the CDROM supplied with your MFC. You can install them easily into your Windows®
system using our installer program. The driver supports our unique
compression mode to enhance printing speed in Windows® applications, and
allows you to set various printer settings, including economy printing mode and
custom paper size.
Popular Printer Emulation Support
The MFC supports HP LaserJet IIP printer emulation mode. If you use DOS
application software, you can use HP LaserJet IIP emulation mode for printer
operations. (Use the Remote Printer Console program to set the printer
emulation.)
Remote Printer Console Program for DOS
The MFL Pro Suite CD-ROM supplied with your MFC includes the utility
program Remote Printer Console (RPC). When you operate your computer in
the Disk Operating System (DOS) environment, RPC lets you easily change the
Brother MFC’s default settings (such as fonts, page setup, emulations, etc.).
RPC also provides a status monitor Terminate-and-Stay Resident (TSR)
program. It runs in the background and monitors the printer status as it reports
the current status or errors on your PC screen.
Bi-directional Parallel Interface
The Brother MFC’s parallel interface enables it to send memory and printer
setup information to the computer.
Enhanced Memory Management
The Brother MFC has its own Data Compression Technology, which
automatically compresses graphic data and downloads font data efficiently into
the MFC’s memory. With the MFC’s standard memory, you can avoid memory
errors and print most full-page, 600 dpi graphic and text data, including larger
fonts.
13 - 1
USING THE BROTHER MFC AS A PRINTER
Printing From Your PC
Multi-purpose Paper Cassette
The MFC’s multi-purpose paper cassette can be adjusted to feed many sizes of
paper: letter, legal, A4, B5 and A5 plain paper. When the MFC receives print
data from your computer, it loads paper from the paper cassette. Insert the sheet
of paper with the side you wish to print on face down in the paper cassette.
■ Select the print command from your PC.
Your PC sends a print command and data to the MFC. The MFC displays the
date and time and RECEIVING DATA. If there are more pages, the MFC
begins to print the next page automatically. When printing is finished, it returns
to online status.
You may select the proper paper source, paper size, and page orientation in
your application software.
If your application software does not support your custom paper size, select the
next larger paper size. Then adjust the print area by changing the right and left
margins in your application software. (See Acceptable Paper, page 2-5.)
Use the manual feed slot for envelopes, labels, transparencies, card stock or
thicker paper.
Two-Sided Printing (Manual Duplexing)
The supplied printer drivers for Windows® 95/98/Me and Windows NT®
Workstation Version 4.0 enable manual duplex printing. (For more
information, see the Help screen for the printer driver.)
The MFC prints all the evennumbered pages on one side of the
paper first.
Then, the Windows® driver
instructs you (with a pop-up
message) to reinsert the paper.
Before reinserting the paper,
straighten it well, or you may get a
paper jam. Very thin or very thick
paper is not recommended.
USING THE BROTHER MFC AS A PRINTER
13 - 2
Caution
When you use manual duplexing, it is possible that a paper jam may occur or the
print quality might not be satisfactory. (See Paper is Jammed in the Paper
Cassette, page 21-4.)
Front Output Bin
The MFC ejects paper with printed surfaces face down into the output bin in the
front of the MFC. Unfold the output bin extension to support the printed pages.
To prevent the possibility of
transparencies smudging as they stack
in the output bin, remove each
transparency after it exits.
Manual Feed Slot
Your MFC has a manual feed slot above the
paper cassette. You can load envelopes and
special print media one at a time into this
slot. You do not have to remove paper from
the paper cassette.
(For information about Acceptable Paper, see
page 2-5.) Insert the sheet of paper with the
side you wish to print on face up in the
manual feed slot.
Use the manual feed slot to print or copy on
envelopes, labels, card stock or thicker
paper.

USING THE BROTHER MFC AS A PRINTER
Loading One Sheet of Paper
You do not have to choose Manual Feed in the Setup dialog box of your printer
driver. Insert the sheet of paper for Portrait (vertical) or Landscape (horizontal),
with the side you wish to print on face up in the manual feed slot.

Printing on Thicker Paper and Card Stock
When the rear cover is lifted up, the MFC has a straight paper path from the
manual feed slot to the rear of the printer. Use this paper feed and output method
when you want to print on envelope, thicker paper or card stock.
1 Select manual feed mode in the printer driver.
2 Send the print data as usual.
3 Lift up the rear cover at the rear of the MFC.
4 Adjust the manual feed paper guides to the
width of the paper you are using.
5 Insert a single sheet of paper into the manual feed slot until the front edge
touches the paper feed rollers. Let go of the paper as the MFC pulls it into
position.
6 After the MFC ejects the printed page, return to Step 5 to insert the next sheet
of paper. The MFC will wait until you insert the next sheet of paper. Repeat
Steps 5 and 6 for each page to be printed.
7 When you have finished printing, close the rear cover of the MFC.
To prevent the possibility of
transparencies smudging as
they stack in the output bin,
remove each transparency after
it exits.

USING THE BROTHER MFC AS A PRINTER
Simultaneous Printing/Faxing
Your MFC can print data from your computer while sending or receiving a fax,
or while scanning information into the computer. However, when the MFC is
copying or receiving a fax on paper, it pauses the PC printing operation, and
resumes when copying or fax receiving is complete. Fax sending and receiving
continues during PC printing/copying. (See Acceptable Paper, page 2-5.)
Choosing Acceptable Paper
We recommend that you test paper (especially special sizes and types of paper)
on the MFC before purchasing large quantities.
■ Avoid feeding labels with carrier sheets exposed, or your MFC will be damaged.
■ Avoid using coated paper, such as vinyl coated paper.
■ Avoid using preprinted or highly textured paper.
For optimum printing, use a recommend type of paper, especially plain paper
and transparencies. For more information on paper specifications, consult your
nearest authorized sales representative or the place where you purchased your
MFC.
■ Use label or transparencies that are designed for use in laser printers.
■ For the best print quality, we recommend using long-grained paper.
■ If you are using special paper, and the paper has problems feeding from the
paper cassette, try again using the manual feed slot.
■ You can use recycled paper in this MFC.

Organizing Your Items in Folders
PaperPort® has an easy-to-use filing system for organizing your items. The
filing system consists of folders and items that you select to view in Desktop
View. An item can be a PaperPort® item or a non-PaperPort® item:
• Folders are arranged in a “tree” structure in the Folder View. You use this pane
to select folders and view their items in Desktop View.
• You can simply drag and drop an item onto a folder. When the folder is
highlighted, release the mouse button and the item is stored in that folder.
• Folders can be “nested”—that is, stored in other folders.
• When you double-click a folder, its items (both PaperPort® MAX files and other
files) appear on the Desktop.
• You can also use Windows® Explorer to manage the folders and items shown in
Desktop View.

Links to Many Other Applications
PaperPort® automatically recognizes many other applications on your computer
and creates a “working link” to them. The Link Bar at the bottom of Desktop
view shows icons of those linked applications. To use a link, drag an item onto
one of the icons to start the application represented by the icon. A typical use of
the Link Bar is to select an item and then fax it.
This sample Link Bar shows several applications with links to PaperPort®.
If PaperPort® does not automatically recognize one of the applications on your
computer, you can manually create a link using the Create New Link
command. (See PaperPort® Help for more information about creating new
links.)
Using ScanSoft™ TextBridge® OCR (Converting
Image Text to Text You Can Edit)
Software by:
ScanSoft™ TextBridge® OCR is automatically installed with PaperPort® when
you install Multi-Function Link® Pro on your computer.
PaperPort® can quickly convert the text on a PaperPort® item (which is really
just a picture of the text) into text that you can edit with a word processing
application. PaperPort® uses the optical character recognition application
ScanSoft™ TextBridge, which comes with PaperPort®—OR—PaperPort® uses
your application if it is already on your computer. You can convert the entire
item, or by using the Copy As Text command, you can select only a portion of
the text to convert.
Dragging an item onto a word-processing link icon starts PaperPort®’s built-in
OCR application, or you can use your own OCR application.
Importing Items from Other Applications
In addition to scanning items, you can bring items into PaperPort® in a variety
of ways and convert them to PaperPort® (MAX) files in several different ways:
• Print to the Desktop View from another application, such as Microsoft Excel.
• Import files saved in other file formats, such as Windows® Bitmap (BMP) or
Tag Image File Format (TIFF).

Exporting Items in Other Formats
You can export or save PaperPort® items in several popular file formats. For
Windows® 95/98/98SE, and Windows NT® Workstation Version 4.0,
Windows® 2000 Professional and Windows® ME, you can export formats BMP,
PCX, DCX, JPG, TIF, PDF, PNG, FPX, HFX, or self-viewing. For Windows®
3.1x, you can export file formats BMP, PCX, DCX, JPG, TIF, PDF, HFX and
GIF. For example, you could create a file for an Internet Web site and export it
as a JPEG file. Web pages often use JPEG files for displaying images.
Exporting an Image File
1 Select the Export command from the File pull-down menu in the PaperPort®
window. The Export ‘XXXXX’ As dialog box will be displayed.
2 Select the drive and directory where you want to store the file.

3 Select the Start button from the Scanner window.
When scanning is completed, close the scanner window. The PaperPort® screen
will appear showing the image you scanned highlighted in red.
Settings in the Scanner Window
Image
Resolution
Resolution: Select the scanning resolution from the Resolution drop down list.
Higher resolutions take more memory and transfer time, but can achieve a finer
scanned image.
When the setting is True Gray, 200 × 100 dpi and 200 × 400 dpi is not available.
Scan Type
Black & White: Set the image Type to Black & White for text or line art. For
photographic images, set the image type to Gray (Error Diffusion) or True Gray.
Gray (Error Diffusion) is used for documents that contain photographic images
or graphics. (Error Diffusion is a method for creating simulated gray images by
placing black dots in a specific matrix instead of true gray dots.)
Colors: Choose either 256 Color, which scans up to 256 colors, 24-bit color,
which scans up to 16.8 million colors. Although using 24-bit color creates an
image with the most accurate colors, the image file will be approximately three
times larger than a file created with 256 Color.
Brightness
Brightness: Adjusting the brightness settings to obtain the best image. The
Brother Multi-Function Link® Pro offers 100 brightness settings (-50 to 50).
The default value is 0, representing an “average” setting.
You can set the brightness level by dragging the slidebar to the right to lighten
the image or to the left to darken the image. You can also type a value in the
box to set the settings.
16 - 5
USING SCANSOFT™ PAPERPORT ® FOR BROTHER AND SCANSOFT™ TEXTBRIDGE ® (FOR WINDOWS ® ONLY)
If the scanned image is too light, set a lower brightness value and scan the
document again.
If the image is too dark, set a higher brightness value and scan the document
again.
Contrast
The contrast setting is adjustable only when you have selected one of the gray
scale settings, but it is not available when Black & White is selected as the gray
Scale.
Increasing the contrast level (by dragging the slidebar to the right) emphasizes
dark and light areas of the Image, while decreasing the contrast level (by
dragging the slidebar to the left) ravels more detail in gray areas. Instead of
using the slidebar, you can type a value in the box to set the contrast.
Custom
Size
Set the Size to one of the following:
• Letter (8 1/2 × 11 in.)
• A4 (210 × 297 mm.)
• Legal (8 1/2 × 14 in.)
• A5 (148 × 210 mm.)
• B5 (182 × 257 mm.)
• Executive (7 1/4 × 10 1/2 in.)
• Business Card (60 × 90 mm.)
• Custom (User adjustable from 0.35 × 0.35 in. to 8.5 × 14 in.)
After you select a custom size, you can adjust the scanning area further by using
the left mouse button to drag the dotted outline of the scanning area. This is
required when you want to crop an image when scanning.
Business Card Size
To scan business cards, select the Business Card (60 × 90 mm.) size setting and
place the business card at the top center of a carrier sheet.
Carrier sheets are available from your Dealer.
When scanning photographs or other images for use in a word processor or other
graphics application, you should try different settings for the contrast, mode and
resolution to see which settings best suit your needs.

Business Card Size
To scan business cards, select the Business Card size setting (90 × 60 mm) and
place the business card at the top center of a carrier sheet.
Carrier sheets are available from your Dealer.
When scanning photographs or other images for use in a word processor or other
graphics application, it is a good idea to try different settings for the contrast,
mode and resolution to determine which settings look best.
Miscellaneous
Brightness
Adjust the brightness settings to obtain the best image. The Brother TWAIN
Scanner driver offers 100 brightness settings (-50 to 50). The default value is 0,
representing an “average” setting.
You can set the brightness level by dragging the slidebar to the right to lighten
the image or to the left to darken the image. You can also type a value in the box
to set the setting. Click OK.
If the scanned image is too light, set a lower brightness value and scan the
document again.
If the image is too dark, set a
higher brightness value and
scan the document again.
Contrast
The contrast setting is adjustable only when you have selected one of the gray
scale settings, but it is not available when Black & White is selected as the Gray
Scale.
Increasing the contrast level (by dragging the slidebar to the right) emphasizes
dark and light areas of the Image, while decreasing the contrast level (by
dragging the slidebar to the left) reveals more detail in gray areas. Instead of
using the slidebar, you can type a value in the box to set the contrast. Click OK.

TROUBLESHOOTING AND ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
If You Are Having Difficulty with Your MFC
If you think there is a problem with your MFC, make a copy first. If the copy
looks good, the problem is probably not your MFC. Check the chart below and
follow the troubleshooting tips.
DIFFICULTY
SUGGESTIONS
Printing or Receiving Faxes
Condensed Print and
Horizontal Streaks / Top and
Bottom of Sentences Are Cut
Off
If your copy looks good, you probably had a bad connection,
with static or interference on the phone line. If the copy looks
bad, call Brother Customer Service at 1-800-284-4329 (In
USA), 1-877-BROTHER (In Canada) or 1-514-685-6464 (In
Montreal).
Vertical Black Lines When
Receiving
Sometimes you may see vertical streaks/black lines on the
faxes you receive. Either your MFC’s primary corona wire for
printing may be dirty, or the sending party’s fax scanner may
be dirty. Clean your primary corona wire (see page 21-18), or
ask the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is with the
sending machine. Try receiving from another fax machine. If
the problem continues, call Brother Customer Service at
1-800-284-4329 (In USA), 1-877-BROTHER (In Canada)
or 1-514-685-6464 (In Montreal).
Fax Machine “Hears” Voice
as CNG Tone
If your fax machine is set to Easy Receive ON, it is more
sensitive to sounds. Your fax machine may mistakenly
interpret certain voices or music on the line as a calling fax
machine and respond with fax receiving tones. Deactivate the
fax by pressing #51 if you are at an extension phone or press
Stop if you are at the fax machine or an external phone. Try
avoiding this problem by turning Easy Receive to OFF. (See
Easy Receive, page 5-3.)
Horizontal streaks; lines are
missing.
You may get a fax with horizontal streaks or with missing
lines. Usually this is caused by a poor telephone connection.
Ask the other party to send the fax again.
Received faxes appear as
split or blank pages.
If the received data is divided and printed on two pages or if
you get an additional blank page, your Paper Size setting may
not be correct for the paper you are using (see pages 4-1). If
you are using the fixed reduction feature, check to see if the
reduction ratio is suitable for the real paper. (See page 11-4).
Phone Line or Connections
Dialing does not work
Check for a dial tone. Change TONE/PULSE setting. (See
Page 4-6.) Check all line cord connections, and make sure the
curled handset cord is NOT plugged into the EXT jack.
Check power cord connection. Send a manual fax by pressing
Hook, or by lifting the handset and dialing the number. Wait
to hear fax receiving tones before pressing Fax Start.

MFC Does Not Answer
When Called
Make sure the MFC is not in MANUAL mode. Check for dial
tone. If possible, call your MFC to hear it answer. If there is
still no answer, check the telephone line cord connection. If
there is no ringing when you call your MFC, call your
Telephone Company to check the line.
Sending Faxes
Poor Transmitting Quality
Try changing your resolution to FINE or S.FINE. Make a
copy to verify your MFC’s scanner operation.
Transmission Verification
Report says “Result:NG”
There is probably temporary noise or static on the line. Try
sending the fax again. If the problem continues, call the
Telephone Company to check your phone line.
Vertical Black Lines When
Sending
If the copy you made shows the same problem, your scanner
is dirty. (See Cleaning the Scanner, page 21-16.)
Handling Incoming Calls
Transferring a Fax Call to the
MFC
If you answered at an extension phone, press your Fax
Receive Code (default setting is 51). When your MFC
answers, hang up.
I have difficulty with custom
features on a single line
If you have Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID,
RingMaster, Voice Mail, an answering machine, an alarm
system or other custom feature on a single phone line with
your MFC, it may create a problem sending or receiving fax
data.
For Example: Your Brother machine handles the Caller ID
subscriber services. However, 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 fax
data. Brother’s ECM feature should help overcome this
problem. This condition is related to the telephone system
industry and is common to all devices that send and receive
information on a single, shared line with custom features. If
avoiding a slight interruption is crucial to your business, a
separate line with no custom features is recommended.
Copy Quality Difficulties
Vertical streaks appear in
copies.

The MFC prints, but it prints
incorrect information.
Sometimes it prints a couple
of characters and then ejects
the pages, etc.
This is an indication that your application printer emulation
Prints setting and the MFC’s printer emulation do not match.
Check your application software to make sure you selected

(or Form Feed) command to the end of your print job.
How can I change the user
settings or default settings on
the MFC?
Use the Remote Printer Console (RPC) program.
Paper Handling Difficulties
The MFC does not load
paper. The LCD shows
CHECK PAPER or PAPER
JAM.
Check to see if the CHECK PAPER or PAPER JAM
message appears on the LCD. If it is empty, load a new stack
of paper into the paper cassette. If there is paper in the paper
cassette, make sure it is straight. If the paper is curled, you
should straighten it. Sometimes it is helpful to remove the
paper, turn the stack over and put it back into the paper
cassette. Reduce the amount of paper in the paper cassette,
then try again. Check the manual feed mode is not selected in
the printer driver.
The MFC does not feed paper
from the manual feed slot.
Reinsert the paper firmly, load one sheet at a time. Make sure
that manual feed mode is selected in the printer driver.
How can I load envelopes?
You can load envelopes from the manual feed slot. Your
application software must be set up to print the envelope size
you are using. This is usually done in the Page Setup or
Document Setup menu of your software. Refer to your
software application manual.
What paper can I use?
You can use plain paper, envelopes, transparencies and labels
that are made for laser machines. (For information on paper
you can use, see Acceptable Paper, page 2-5.)
How can I clear paper jams?
See Paper Jam, page 21-4.
Print Quality Difficulties
Printed pages are curled.
Thin Paper (17lb-18.4lb) can cause this problem. Make sure
you select the Paper Type that suits the paper in your multipurpose sheet feeder. (See Paper Type, page 11-8 and 11-9
and Media Type, page 14-4.)
Printed pages are smeared.
Rough surfaces or thick media can cause “smeared pages”
—OR—“the toner to smear”. Make sure you select the correct
Paper Type that suits the paper in your multi-purpose sheet
feeder. (See Paper Type, page 11-8 and 11-9 and Media Type,
page 14-4.)
Printouts are too dark or light.

pages to clear this problem. Markings may occur if the MFC
has not been used for a long time. A possible cause is that the
surface of the drum is scratched. You must then replace the
drum unit with a new one. If the markings do not disappear, it
may be that the drum was marked or damaged by excessive
exposure to light. In this case, replace the drum unit with a
new one.
Example of Regular
Marking
Printed pages are blurred at
the center or at either edge.
Blurred Page
Ghost images appear on
printed pages.
Certain environmental conditions such as humidity, high
temperatures, etc. may cause this condition to occur. Make
sure the MFC is placed on a flat, horizontal surface. Remove
the drum unit with the toner cartridge installed. Try rocking
them from side to side. You may clear a blurred page by
wiping the scanner windows with a clean soft cloth. (See
Routine Maintenance and Cleaning the Drum Unit, on pages
21-16 and 21-18.) If a blurred page occurs after cleaning and
the LCD shows CHANGE DRUM SOON, replace the drum
unit with a new one.
Adjust the print conditions by changing the Print Density
setting, page 5-4.—OR—
Rough surfaces or thick media can cause a ghost image. Make
sure you select the Paper Type that suits the paper in your
multi-purpose sheet feeder. (See Paper Type, page 11-8 and
11-9 and Media Type, page 14-4.)

Replacing the Toner Cartridge
The MFC can print up to 6,000 pages using a high yield toner cartridge. When
the toner cartridge is running low, the LCD shows TONER LOW. The MFC is
supplied with a standard toner cartridge that must be replaced after
approximately 3,000 pages. Actual page count will vary depending on your
average document type (i.e., standard letter, detailed graphics).
Note
It is a good idea to keep a new toner cartridge ready for use when you see the
TONER LOW warning.
Discard the used toner cartridge according to local regulations. If you are not
sure of them, your local Sanitation Department. Be sure to seal the toner
cartridge tightly so toner powder does not spill out of the cartridge. When
discarding used toner cartridges, keep them separate from domestic garbage.
We recommend that you clean the MFC when you replace the toner cartridge.

Replacing the Drum Unit
The MFC uses a drum unit to create print images on paper. If the LCD shows
CHANGE DRUM SOON, the drum unit is near the end of its life and it is time
to purchase a new one.
Even if the LCD shows CHANGE DRUM SOON, you may be able to continue
printing without having to replace the drum unit for a while. However, if there
is a noticeable deterioration in the output print quality (even before CHANGE
DRUM SOON appears), then the drum unit should be replaced. You should
clean the MFC when you replace the drum unit. (See page 21-18.)
Caution
When removing the drum unit, handle it carefully because it contains toner. If
toner scatters and your hands or clothes get dirty, immediately wipe or wash
with cold water.
The drum unit is a consumable item, and it is necessary to replace it periodically.
There are many factors that determine the actual drum life, such as temperature,
humidity, type of paper and how much toner you use for the number of pages per print
job. The estimated drum life is up to 20,000 pages. The actual number of pages your
drum will print may be significantly less than these estimates. Because we have no
control over the many factors that determine the actual drum life, we cannot
guarantee a minimum number of pages that will be printed by your drum.
WARNING
Just after you have used the MFC, some
internal parts of the MFC are extremely
HOT! So please be careful.
