Using the machine as a
printer
Using the Brother printer driver
A Printer Driver is software that translates data from the format used
by a computer into the format required by a particular printer, using
a printer command language or page description language.
The printer drivers are on the CD-ROM we have supplied. Install the
drivers first by following the Quick Setup Guide. Also, the latest
printer driver can be downloaded from the Brother Solutions Center
at:
http://solutions.brother.com
Windows® Printing
The dedicated printer driver and TrueType™ compatible fonts for
Microsoft® Windows® 98/98SE/Me/2000 Professional/XP and
Windows NT® workstation 4.0 are available on the CD-ROM
supplied with your machine. 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 machine supports HP LaserJet (PCL level 6) and BR-Script 3
(PostScript® 3™) printer emulation mode. If you use DOS application
software, you can use HP LaserJet (PCL level 6) and BR-Script 3
(PostScript® 3™) emulation mode for printer operations.
1 - 1 USING THE MACHINE AS A PRINTER
How to print your document
When the machine receives data from your computer, it begins
printing by picking up paper from the paper tray. The paper tray can
feed many types of paper and envelopes.
1
2
3
From your computer select the Print command.
If your computer is also connected to any other printers, select
Brother MFC-XXXX or DCP-XXXX (USB) Printer (Where
XXXX is your model name) as your printer driver from the Print
or Print Settings menu in your software application, and then
click on OK to begin printing.
Your computer sends a print command and data to the machine.
The LED blinks in yellow and the machine starts to print.
You can select the paper size and orientation in your application
software.
If your application software does not support your custom paper size,
select the next largest paper size.
Then adjust the print area by changing the right and left margins in
your application software.
USING THE MACHINE AS A PRINTER 1 - 2
Simultaneous printing and faxing
Your machine can print from your computer while scanning the
document into the computer, or while sending/receiving a fax in
memory. (MFC-8440, MFC-8840D and MFC-8840DN only) Fax
sending will not be stopped during PC printing.
Two-sided printing (Duplex Printing)
The supplied printer driver supports duplex printing. (For more
information, see Duplex Printing on page 2-7.)
Automatic Duplex Printing
(For MFC-8840D, MFC-8840DN and DCP-8045D)
In this mode, the machine prints on both sides of A4, Letter or
Legal paper automatically.
1 Open the Properties dialog box in the printer driver.
2 Select Duplex Printing mode in the Advanced tab, make sure
that ‘Use Duplex Unit’ has been selected, and then click the OK
button. (See Duplex Printing on page 2-7.) The printer will print
on both sides of the paper automatically.
■ When you select Use Duplex Unit, HQ 1200 is not
available.
■ If you also want to use Duplex Printing for fax and copy
operations, see To use Automatic Duplexing for fax, copy
and print operations (For MFC-8840D, MFC-8840DN and
DCP-8045D).
1 - 3 USING THE MACHINE AS A PRINTER
Manual Duplex Printing
The machine prints all the
even-numbered 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.
We recommend 20 to 24 lb (75 to 90 g/m2) paper.
Face-down output tray
The machine ejects paper with printed surfaces face down into the
output tray in the front of the machine. Unfold the support flap to
support the printed pages.
When printing transparencies, remove each one from the
support flap after it exits the machine.

created with 256 Color.
Brightness
Adjust this settings (-50 to 50) to obtain the best image. The default
value is 0, representing an ‘average’.
You can set the level by dragging the slide bar to the right or left to

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
This setting is adjustable only when you have selected one of the
gray scale settings. It is not available when Black & White and Color
settings are selected as the Scan Type.
You can increase or decrease the contrast level by moving the slide
bar to the left or right. An increase emphasizes dark and light areas
of the image, while a decrease reveals more detail in gray areas. You
can also type a value in the box for the setting.

Using ScanSoft® PaperPort® 9.0SE and
OmniPage® OCR
ScanSoft® PaperPort® 9.0SE for Brother is a document
management application. You will use PaperPort® 9.0SE to view
scanned documents.
PaperPort® 9.0SE has a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, filing system
that will help you organize your graphics and text documents. It
allows you to combine or “stack” documents of different formats for
printing, faxing or filing.
ScanSoft® PaperPort® 9.0SE can be accessed through the
ScanSoft® PaperPort® 9.0SE program group.
See Documentation for ScanSoft® PaperPort® 9.0SE on the
CD-ROM.
The complete ScanSoft® PaperPort® 9.0SE User’s Guide, including
ScanSoft® OmniPage® OCR, is in the documentation on the
CD-ROM.
This chapter is only an introduction to the basic operations.
When you install MFL-Pro Suite, ScanSoft® PaperPort® 9.0SE for
Brother and ScanSoft® OmniPage® OCR are installed with it
automatically.
If you are using Windows® XP, Windows NT® 4.0 or Windows®
2000 Professional, we recommend that you are logged on with
administrator rights.
3 - 20 HOW TO SCAN USING WINDOWS®
Viewing items
ScanSoft® PaperPort® 9.0SE provides several ways to view items:
Desktop View displays a thumbnail (a small graphic that represents
each item in a Desktop or folder).
Items in the selected folder appear on the PaperPort® 9.0SE
Desktop. You can see PaperPort® 9.0SE items (MAX files) and
non-PaperPort® 9.0SE items (files created using other applications).
Non-PaperPort® 9.0SE items include an icon that indicates the
application that was used to create the item; a non-PaperPort®
9.0SE item is represented by a small rectangular thumbnail and not
an actual image.
Desktop View displays items
as thumbnails
Page View displays a close-up of a single page. You can open a
PaperPort® 9.0SE item by double-clicking on it.
As long as you have the appropriate application on your computer to
display it, you can also double-click a non-PaperPort® 9.0SE item to
open it.
Page View displays each item
as a full page
HOW TO SCAN USING WINDOWS® 3 - 21
Organizing your items in folders
PaperPort® 9.0SE 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® 9.0SE
item or a non-PaperPort® 9.0SE item:
■ Folders are arranged in a “tree” structure in the Folder View.
You use this section 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® 9.0SE
MAX files and non PaperPort® 9.0SE files) appear on the
Desktop.
■ You can also use Windows® Explorer to manage the folders
and items shown in Desktop View.
Quick links to other applications
ScanSoft® PaperPort® 9.0SE automatically recognizes many other
applications on your computer and creates a “working link” to them.
The Send To Bar at the bottom of the 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 Send To Bar
is to select an item and then fax it.
This sample Send To Bar shows several applications with links to
PaperPort® 9.0SE.
If PaperPort® 9.0SE does not automatically recognize one of the
applications on your computer, you can manually create a link using
the New Program Link... command.
(See PaperPort® 9.0SE in the Documentation section on the
CD-ROM for more information about creating new links.)

ScanSoft® OmniPage® OCR lets you convert
image text into text you can edit
Software by:
ScanSoft® OmniPage® OCR is installed automatically with
PaperPort® 9.0SE when you install MFL-Pro Suite on your computer.
ScanSoft® PaperPort® 9.0SE can quickly convert the text on a
ScanSoft® PaperPort® 9.0SE item (which is really just a picture of the
text) into text that you can edit with a word processing application.
PaperPort® 9.0SE uses the optical character recognition application
ScanSoft® OmniPage®, which comes with PaperPort® 9.0SE
—OR—
PaperPort® 9.0SE can use your preferred OCR application if it is
already on your computer. You can convert the entire item, or by
using the Copy Text command, you can select only a portion of the
text to convert.
Dragging an item onto a word-processing link icon starts PaperPort®
9.0SE’s built-in OCR application, or you can use your own OCR
application.
You can Import items from other applications
In addition to scanning items, you can bring items into PaperPort®
9.0SE in a variety of ways and convert them to PaperPort® 9.0SE
(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 Tagged Image File Format (TIFF).
HOW TO SCAN USING WINDOWS® 3 - 23
You can Export items in other formats
You can export or save PaperPort® 9.0SE items in several popular
file formats, such as BMP, JPEG, TIFF, PDF or self-viewing.
For example, to create a file for an Internet Web site, export it as a
JPEG file. Web pages often use JPEG files for displaying images.

Color Type
Black & White—Set the image type to Black and White for text or line

Gray (Error Diffusion)—is used for documents with photographic
images or graphics. (Error Diffusion is a method for creating
simulated gray images by placing black dots instead of the true gray
dots in a specific matrix instead of true gray dots.)
True Gray—is used for documents with photographic images or
graphics. This mode is more exact because it uses up to 256 shades
of gray. It requires the most memory and takes the longest transfer
time.
Colors—Choose either 8-bit Color, which scans up to 8-bit Color or
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 about three times larger than a file created with 8-bit
