About envelopes
2
 Use envelopes that weigh from 20 to 25 lb

Before loading, press the corners and
sides of envelopes to make them as flat
as possible.

IMPORTANT
DO NOT use the following types of
envelopes, as they will not feed correctly:
• That are of a baggy construction.
• That have windows.
• That are embossed (have raised
writing on them).
• That have clasps or staples.
• That are pre-printed on the inside.
Glue

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 correct 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 16.)
 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 using 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.
Recommended print media

To get the best print quality, we suggest using
the Brother paper in the table.
We recommend using 3M Transparency Film
when you print on transparencies.

 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
the photo paper.
 Avoid touching either side of the
transparency paper because they absorb
water and perspiration easily, and this
may cause decreased output quality.
Transparencies designed for laser
printers/copiers may stain your next

Choose the correct Receive Mode
5
The correct Receive Mode is determined by the external devices and telephone subscriber
services (Voice Mail, Distinctive Ring, etc.) you 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 33 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 32 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 36.)
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 29.)
Will you be using your Brother machine on the same line as your telephone?
Do you want to receive voice calls and faxes automatically?
Fax/Tel 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 29.)
Important Note: You cannot receive voice messages on either Voice Mail or an answering machine
with 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 29.)

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
pseudo/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
machine, extension and external telephones
will not ring; however, you can still answer the
call on any telephone by using a remote code.

Your machine supports the Caller ID and
Distinctive Ring subscriber telephone
services that some telephone companies
offer.
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.
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,
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.
32
To avoid conflicts between your Brother
machine and your Voice Mail service, do one
of the following:
6
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, Ident-A-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 33.)
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 39.)
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 27.)

Do you have Voice Mail?
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 Distinctive Ring service
from the telephone company, you will need to
follow the directions in Registering the
Distinctive Ring pattern to register the new
Distinctive Ring pattern they give you. This is
so your machine can recognize its incoming
calls.
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.
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?
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.

NOTE
• Please call your telephone company for
availability and rates.

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, call your telephone company
and ask for one that is shown.
 The machine will only answer calls to its
registered number.
 The first two rings are silent on the
machine. This is because the machine
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 correctly, it
will recognize the registered ring pattern of
the “fax number” within 2 ring patterns and
then answer with fax tones. When the
“voice number” is called, the machine will
not answer.
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. You will see D/R
on the LCD screen and Manual as the
Receive Mode setting. You cannot change
the Receive Mode from D/R (Manual) to
another Receive Mode while Distinctive Ring
is set to On. This ensures the Brother
machine will only answer the Distinctive Ring
number and will not interfere when your main
telephone number is called.

Telephone services and external devices
Voice over Internet Protocol
(VoIP)
6
 If you have questions about how to
connect your machine to the VoIP
system, call your VoIP provider.
VoIP is a type of phone system that uses an
Internet connection instead of a traditional
telephone line. Telephone providers
frequently bundle VoIP together with Internet
and cable services.
After you have connected your machine to
the VoIP system, press Hook to verify that
the machine has a dial tone. If the machine
does not have a dial tone, call your VoIP
provider.
Your machine may not work with some VoIP
systems. If you want to use your machine to
send and receive faxes on a VoIP system,
make sure that one end of your telephone
cord is connected to the jack labeled LINE on
your machine. The other end of the telephone
cord may be connected to a modem,
interface box, phone adapter, splitter, or other
such device.
If you are having problems sending or
receiving faxes over a VoIP system, we
recommend changing the machine’s modem
speed to the Basic(for VoIP) setting
(see Telephone line interference / VoIP
on page 91).

Chapter 6
Connecting an external
TAD (telephone
answering device)
• If you do not subscribe to the
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.)
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.
36
• Before you connect the external TAD,
remove the protective cap (2) from the
EXT. jack on the machine.

Recording an outgoing
message (OGM) on the
external TAD
6
Timing is important in recording this
message. The way you record this message
will affect both manual and automatic fax
reception.
a
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.)
b
c
Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
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.”
NOTE
d
Carefully guide the telephone line cord
into the cable channel and out the back
of the machine.
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.
37
Chapter 6
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.
We cannot guarantee that your machine will
operate correctly under all circumstances
when connected to a PBX. Any difficulties
with sending or receiving faxes should be
reported first to the company who handles
your PBX.

Routine maintenance
Replacing the ink
cartridges
Your machine is equipped with an ink dot
counter. The ink dot counter monitors the
level of ink in each of the four cartridges.
When the machine detects an ink cartridge is
running out of ink, the machine will display a
message.
The LCD will show which ink cartridge is low
or needs replacing. Be sure to follow the LCD
prompts to replace the ink cartridges in the
correct order.
Even though the machine tells you to replace
an ink cartridge, there will be a small amount
of ink left in the ink cartridge. It is necessary
to keep some ink in the ink cartridge to
prevent air from drying out and damaging the
print head assembly.
CAUTION
If ink gets in your eyes, wash it out with
water at once and call a doctor if you are
concerned.
A
IMPORTANT
A
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
Open the ink cartridge cover (1).
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.

vacuum seal. Then remove the orange
protective packing as shown.

c
Open the new ink cartridge bag for the
color indicated on the LCD, and then
take out the ink cartridge.
IMPORTANT
DO NOT touch the cartridge in the area
indicated (2); this can prevent the
machine from detecting the cartridge.
55
e
f
Each color has its own correct position.
Insert the ink cartridge in the direction of
the arrow on the label.
Gently push the back of the ink cartridge
marked “PUSH” until it latches, and then
close the ink cartridge cover.
NOTE
• 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 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
cartridge, check that the ink cartridge is
installed correctly. Remove the ink
cartridge and reinstall it slowly and firmly
until it latches.
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.
g
The machine will automatically reset the
ink dot counter.
• DO NOT shake the ink cartridges. 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, the LCD
shows Wrong Ink Color. Check which
ink cartridges are not matched by color to
their ink cartridge positions and move
them to their correct positions.
• 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.

High Temperature
The room temperature is too high.
After cooling the room, allow the
machine to cool down to room
temperature. Try again later.
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. Because
these components are periodic
maintenance items, the replacement
is not covered under the warranty.
The need to replace these items and
the time period before replacement is
dependent on the number of purges
and flushes required to clean the ink
system. These boxes acquire
amounts of ink during the different
purging and flushing operations. The
number of times a machine purges
and flushes for cleaning varies
depending on different situations. For
example, frequently powering the
machine on and off will cause
numerous cleaning cycles since the
machine automatically cleans itself
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. Call 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
After a paper jam has been
cleared, the machine
automatically cleans itself before
the next received fax is printed.
2
The machine automatically cleans
itself after sitting idle for more than
30 days (infrequent use).
3
The machine automatically cleans
itself after ink cartridges of the
same color have been replaced

Troubleshooting
Printing Received Faxes
Difficulty
 Condensed print
 Horizontal streaks
Suggestions
Usually this is caused by a poor telephone connection. Make a copy; if your copy
looks good, you probably had a bad connection, with static or interference on the
telephone line. Ask the other party to send the fax again.
 Top and bottom sentences are
cut off
 Missing lines
Vertical black lines when receiving.
The sender's scanner may be dirty. Ask the sender to make a copy to see if the
problem is with the sending machine. Try receiving from another fax machine.
Left and right margins are cut off or
a single page is printed on two
pages.
If the received faxes are divided and printed on two pages or if you get an extra
blank page, your Paper Size setting may not be correct for the paper you are
using.
(See Paper Size on page 16.)
Turn on Auto Reduction. (See Advanced User’s Guide: Printing a reduced
incoming fax.)
Received color fax prints only in
black & white.
Replace the color ink cartridges that have reached the end of their life, and then
ask the other person to send the color fax again.
(See Replacing the ink cartridges on page 54.)
Telephone Line or Connections
Difficulty
Suggestions
Dialing does not work.
(No dial tone)
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into
the telephone wall jack and the LINE jack inside the machine.
(Canada only) Change the Tone/Pulse setting. (See Quick Setup Guide.)
Send a manual fax by pressing Hook and dialing the number. Wait to hear
fax-receiving tones before pressing Black Start or Color Start.
If there is no dial tone, connect a known-working telephone and telephone line
cord to the jack. Then lift the external telephone's handset and listen for a dial tone.
If there is still no dial tone, ask your telephone company to check the line and/or
wall jack.
The machine does not answer
when called.
Make sure the machine is in the correct Receive Mode for your setup.
(See Choose the correct Receive Mode on page 27.) Check for a dial tone. If
possible, call your machine to hear whether it answers. If there is still no answer,
check that the telephone line cord is plugged into the telephone wall jack and the
LINE jack inside the machine. If there is no ringing when you call your machine,
ask your telephone company to check the line.

B
Receiving Faxes
Difficulty
Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
Press Hook in Fax mode to make sure your machine has a dial tone. If you hear
static or interference on your fax line, call your local telephone provider.
Check all line cord connections. Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged into
the telephone wall jack and the LINE jack inside the machine. If you subscribe to
DSL, VoIP or MagicJack services, call your service provider for connection
instructions. To lower the modem speed and turn off ECM (error correction mode),
see Telephone line interference / VoIP on page 91.
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 27.)
If you have a dedicated fax line and want your Brother machine to automatically
answer all incoming faxes, select Fax Only mode.
If your Brother machine shares a line with an external answering machine, select
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, see
Voice Mail on page 32.
If your Brother machine is on a line with the Distinctive Ring subscriber service,
see Distinctive Ring on page 33.
If your Brother machine shares a line with other telephones and you want it to
automatically answer all incoming faxes, select 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 incoming faxes,
select Manual mode. In Manual mode, you must answer every incoming call and
activate the machine to receive faxes.
Another device or service at your location may be answering the call before your
Brother machine answers. To test this, lower the Ring Delay setting:
 If the Receive Mode is set to Fax Only or Fax/Tel, reduce the Ring Delay
to 1 ring. (See Ring Delay on page 30.)
 If the Receive Mode is set to External TAD, reduce the number of rings
programmed on your answering machine to 2.
 If the Receive Mode is set to Manual, DO NOT adjust the Ring Delay setting.
Have someone send you a test fax:
 If you received the test fax successfully, your machine is operating correctly.
Remember to reset your Ring Delay or answering machine setting back to
your original setting. If receiving problems recur after resetting the Ring Delay,
then a person, device, or subscriber service is answering the fax call before
the machine has a chance to answer.
 If you were not able to receive the fax, then another device or subscriber
service may be interfering with your fax reception or there may be a problem
with your fax line.

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 27.)
Make sure your Brother machine’s Easy Receive feature is set to 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 31.)
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 91.)
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 inside the machine.
Print the Transmission Verification Report and check for an error. (See Advanced
User’s Guide: Reports.)
Ask the other party to check that the receiving machine has paper.
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 on page 57.)
Transmission Verification Report
shows 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 see RESULT:NG on the Transmission
Verification Report, your machine may be out of memory. To gain extra memory,
you can print fax messages from the machine’s memory. (See Advanced User’s
Guide: Printing a fax from the 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 machine's Compatibility setting to Basic(for VoIP).
(See Telephone line interference / VoIP on page 91.)

B
Sending Faxes (continued)
Difficulty
Suggestions
Sent faxes are blank.
Make sure you are loading the document correctly. (See Loading documents
on page 21.)
Vertical black lines when sending.
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 on page 57.)
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 31.)
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 Black Start or Color Start, and press 2 to receive the fax.
When your machine answers, hang up.
Custom features on a single line.
If you have Call Waiting, Call Waiting/Caller ID, Caller ID, RingMaster, Voice Mail,
an answering machine, an alarm system or other custom feature on a single
telephone line with your machine, it may create a problem sending or receiving
faxes.
For example: If you subscribe to Call Waiting or another custom service and its
signal comes through the line while your machine is sending or receiving a fax, the
signal can temporarily interrupt or disrupt the faxes. Brother's ECM (Error
Correction Mode) feature should help overcome this problem. This condition is
related to the telephone system industry and is common to all devices that send
and receive information on a single, shared line with custom features. If avoiding
a slight interruption is crucial to your business, we recommend using a separate
telephone line with no custom features.
Copying Difficulties
Difficulty
Suggestions
Vertical black lines or streaks
appear in copies.
Black vertical lines on copies are typically caused by dirt or correction fluid on the
glass strip. Clean the glass strip, scanner glass, white bar and white plastic above
them. (See Cleaning the scanner on page 57.)
Copies are blank.
Make sure you are loading the document correctly. (See Loading documents
on page 21.)
Poor copy results when using the
ADF.
Try using the scanner glass. (See Using the scanner glass on page 22.)
Fit to Page does not work correctly.
Make sure the document is not skewed on the scanner glass.
Reposition the document and try again.

What is Innobella™?
Innobella™ is a range of genuine consumables offered by Brother.

glossy photo paper (BP71 series) for high quality. Brilliant prints are
made easier with Innobella™ Ink and paper.
