USER’S GUIDE
IMPORTANT - For Your Safety
To ensure safe operation the three-pin plug supplied must be inserted
only into a standard three-pin power point which is properly earthed
through the normal household wiring.
Extension cords should not be used with the equipment. If it is
essential that an extension cord has to be used, it must be a three-pin
plug type and correctly wired to provide proper grounding. Incorrectly
wired extension cords may cause personal injury and equipment
damage.
The fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily does not imply that
the power is earthed and that the installation is completely safe. For
your safety, if in any doubt about the effective grounding of the power,
consult a qualified electrician.
Operator Safety
This machine is considered a CDRH class 1 laser device, safe for
office/EDP use. The machine contains 5-milliwat, 700 – 800 nanometer
wavelength, GaAIAs laser diodes. Direct (or indirect reflected) eye
contact with the laser beam might cause serious eye damage. Safety
precautions and interlock mechanisms have been designed to prevent
any possible laser beam exposure to the operator.
Caution
Use of controls or adjustment or performance of procedures other than
those specified in this manual might result in hazardous radiation
exposure.
xvi
REGULATIONS
Disconnect Device
This printer must be installed near a power outlet that is easily
accessible. In case of emergencies, you must disconnect the power
cord from the power outlet to shut off the power completely.
Geräuschemission / Acoustic Noise Emission (For Germany Only)
Lpa < 70dB (A) DIN 45635-19-01-KL2
Wiring Information (For U.K. only)
Important
If the mains plug supplied with this printer is not suitable for your
socket outlet, remove the plug from the mains cord and fit an
appropriate three pin plug. If the replacement plug is intended to take a
fuse then fit the same rating fuse as the original.
If a moulded plug is severed from the mains cord then it should be
destroyed because a plug with cut wires is dangerous if engaged in a
live socket outlet. Do not leave it where a child might find it!
In the event of replacing the plug fuse, fit a fuse approved by ASTA to
BS1362 with the same rating as the original fuse.
Always replace the fuse cover. Never use a plug with the cover omitted.
WARNING - THIS PRINTER MUST BE EARTHED
xvii
USER’S GUIDE
The wires in the mains cord are colored in accordance with the
following code :
GREEN AND YELLOW: EARTH
BLUE
: NEUTRAL
BROWN
: LIVE
The colors of the wires in the mains lead of this printer may not
correspond with the colored markings identifying the terminals in your
plug.
If you need to fit a different plug, proceed as follows.
Remove a length of the cord outer sheath, taking care not to damage
the colored insulation of the wires inside.
xviii
REGULATIONS
Cut each of the three wires to the appropriate length. If the
construction of the plug permits, leave the green and yellow wire
longer than the others so that, in the event that the cord is pulled out of
the plug, the green and yellow wire will be the last to disconnect.
Remove a short section of the colored insulation to expose the wires.
The wire which is colored green and yellow must be connected to the
terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter “E” or by the safety
earth symbol , or colored green or green and yellow.
The wire which is colored blue must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter “N” or colored black or blue.
The wire which is colored brown must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter “L” or colored red or brown.
The outer sheath of the cord must be secured inside the plug. The
colored wires should not hang out of the plug.

Frequency:
±10% of the rated power voltage
50/60 Hz (220-240 V) or 60 Hz (110-120 V)
Do not use an extension power cord. Connect the printer power cord directly
to the power socket.
Do not share the same power circuit with other high-power appliances,
particularly an air conditioner, copier, shredder, etc. If it is unavoidable that
you must use the printer with these appliances, we recommend you use a
voltage transformer or a high-frequency noise filter.
Use a voltage regulator if the power source is not stable.

Plain paper
The printer is designed to work well with most types of xerographic and bond
paper. However, some paper variables may have an effect on print quality or
handling reliability. Always test samples of paper before buying to ensure
that it provides acceptable performance. Some important guidelines when
selecting paper are:
☛ 1.
Your supplier should be informed that the paper or envelopes will be used in
a laser printer.
☛ 2.
Preprinted papers must use inks that can withstand the printer’s fusing
temperature. (392 degrees Fahrenheit or 200 degrees centigrade)
☛ 3.
If selecting a cotton bond paper, paper with a rough surface such as cockle
or laid finished paper, or paper that is wrinkled or puckered, you may
experience less than optimal performance.
✒ Note
The manufacturer does not warrant the use of any particular paper. The
operator is responsible for the quality of paper used with the printer.

CHAPTER 1 ABOUT THIS PRINTER
Labels and Transparencies
The printer will print on most type of labels and transparencies designed for
use with a laser printer. Labels should have an adhesive that is acrylicbased since such material is more stable at the high temperatures in the
fusing unit. Adhesives should not come in contact with any part of the
printer, because the label stock may stick to the drum or rollers and cause
jams and print quality problems. No adhesive should be exposed between
the labels. Labels should be arranged so that they cover the entire page with
the only exposed spaces being lengthwise down the sheet. Using labels with
spaces may result in labels peeling off and causing serious jam or print
problems.
All labels and transparencies used in this printer must be able to withstand a
temperature of 200 degrees centigrade (392 degrees Fahrenheit) for a
period of 0.1 seconds.
Label and transparency sheets should not exceed the paper weight
specifications described in the User’s Guide. Labels and transparencies
exceeding this specification may not feed or print properly and cause
damage to your printer.
Print quality, reliability and performance of labels and transparencies cannot
be guaranteed.
DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE USE OF UNSATISFACTORY LABELS OR
TRANSPARENCIES IS NOT COVERED UNDER ANY WARRANTY OR
SERVICE AGREEMENTS.

Before printing envelopes, you must fan the stack well to avoid paper
jams and misfeeds.
Fig. 1-29
•
•
•
•
Different types of paper should not be loaded at the same time in the
paper tray, it may cause paper jams or misfeeds.
Do not print envelopes by Duplex printing.
Be sure to select the same paper size as the paper to be used from your
application software, or correct printing cannot be obtained.
If your application software does not support paper size selection on its
print menu, you can change the paper size with the MP Size setting in
the Paper Menu on the Control Panel. For more information, see Menus
in Chapter 3.
1-33
✒ Note
If envelopes get smudged during printing, set the print density to a higher
value in the QUALITY settings with the panel operation switch for darker
printouts. To adjust the print density setting, see “Control Panel” in Chapter
3.
• Envelope joints that are sealed by the manufacturer should be secure.
• All sides should be properly folded without any wrinkles or creases.
Most envelopes will perform acceptably on your printer. However, some
envelopes will have feeding and print quality problems because of their
construction. A suitable envelope should have edges with a straight, well
creased folds and should not have more than two thickness of paper along
the lead edge. The envelope should lie flat and not have baggy or flimsy
construction. Purchase quality envelopes only from a supplier who
understands that the envelopes will be used in a laser printer. All envelopes
should be tested prior to use to ensure desirable print results.
✒ Note
The manufacturer neither warrants nor recommends the use of a particular
envelope because envelope properties are subject to change by the
envelope manufacturer. The entire responsibility for the quality and
performance of the envelope lies with the customer.

CHAPTER 2 BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
Automatic emulation selection
This printer has an Automatic emulation selection function. When the printer
receives data from the computer, it automatically selects the emulation
mode. This function has been factory set to ON.
The printer can select the emulation among the following combinations:
EPSON (default)
HP LaserJet
BR-Script 3
HP-GL
EPSON FX-850
IBM
HP LaserJet
BR-Script 3
HP-GL
IBM Proprinter XL
You can also select the emulation mode manually with the EMULATION
menu in PRINT MENU mode by using the Control panel. For more
information, see Chapter 3.
2-21
✒ Note
When you use the Automatic emulation selection, note the following:
•
The EPSON or IBM emulation mode priority must be selected, as the
printer cannot distinguish between them. Since the factory setting is the
EPSON emulation mode, you might need to select the IBM emulation
mode with EMULATION menu in SETUP mode by using the Control
panel when you need to use this emulation.
•
Try this function with your application software or network server. If the
function does not work properly, select the required emulation mode
manually using the printer panel switches or use emulation selection
commands from your software.
2-22
CHAPTER 2 BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
Automatic interface selection
This printer has an Automatic interface selection function. When the printer
receives data from the computer, it automatically selects the interface as
appropriate.
When you use the parallel interface, you can turn the high-speed and bidirectional parallel communications on or off with parallel menu in
INTERFACE mode by using the Control panel. For further information, see
Chapter 3. Since the automatic interface selection mode has been factory
set to ON, simply connect the interface cable to the printer.
If a Network board (Brother NC-4100h) has been installed, Select
NETWORK mode by using the Control panel
When necessary, select the interface or the network communications
parameters manually with the INTERFACE mode by using the Control panel.
For further information, see Chapter 3. For the settings on the computer, see
the manual of the computer or software you are using.
✒ Note
When you use the Automatic interface selection, note the following:
•
This function takes a few seconds to work. If you want to speed up
printing, select the required interface manually with the SELECT menu
in INTERFACE mode by using the Control panel.
If you constantly use only one interface, we recommend that you select that
interface in the INTERFACE mode. The printer allocates all of the input buffer
to that interface if only one interface is selected.
2-23
Printer settings
Factory settings
The printer settings have been set at the factory before shipment. They are
called “Factory settings.” Although you can operate the printer with these
factory settings unchanged, you can tailor the printer by making user
settings. Please see “List of Factory settings” in Chapter 3.
✒ Note
Changing the user settings does not affect factory settings. You cannot
modify the preset factory settings.
The changed user settings can be restored to the factory default settings
with the RESET MENU mode. For further information, see Chapter 3.

REPRINT switch
If you want to reprint a document that has just been printed, you can reprint
it by pressing the Reprint switch. Also, if you have created a document that
you wish to share with colleagues, simply spool the document to a nonsecure area of the printer. This document can then be re-printed by anyone
who is on the network or at the printer Control panel.
You can use the reprint function when the printer is READY or in the settings
menu.
When you want to print PROOF, PUBLIC or SECURE data, we recommend
installing the optional HDD or Compact Flash.
If you do not install an HDD (See HDD in Chapter 4) or Compact Flash Card
(see Compact Flash Card in Chapter 4), you can reprint from RAM.
When you use RAM to reprint;
☛ 1.
Press the Set switch on the Control panel to exit from the READY status and
select RAMDISK SIZE in the SETUP mode.
☛ 2.
The default RAM is 0MB. Press the + switch to increase the reprint RAM
size in 1MB steps.
✒ Notes
•
•
When you increase the RAM size to use for secure printing, the work
area of the printer is decreased and the printer performance will reduce.
Ensure that you reset the RAMDISK SIZE to 0MB when you have
finished using secure printing.
When you store the data in RAM, the data is deleted when the printer
power is turned off.
We also recommend adding additional RAM when you want to secure print a
large amount of data. (See RAM expansion in Chapter 4)

The Duplex unit is an optional device that allows printing on both sides of
pages. When it is installed, you can select either duplex printing or simplex
printing from the Control panel or the printer driver. For more information
about the control panel, see “Control Panel” in Chapter 3.
If you want to duplex print, it is necessary to increase the installed RAM
depending on the data you want to print. If the printer cannot manage all the
data for duplex printing at 600 dpi resolution, it will automatically switch to
simplex printing or decrease the resolution from 300 or 600 dpi to a lower
resolution.
Installing the Duplex Unit
The installation procedure for the Duplex unit when the Multi-purpose tray
unit is not yet installed is described below.
If the Multi-purpose tray unit is already installed, perform Steps 8 to 10 of
“Installing the Multi-purpose tray” and skip Steps 5 to 8 below.
✒ Note
To install the duplex unit, the interchange unit must be installed first.

service representative.
If you can print a configuration page but cannot get the
printer to print when you issue a print command from your
computer, it probably means there is a problem with your
computer.
Also keep it in mind that large, complex data might take a
long time for the printer to process.
Connect the interface cable correctly. If there are any
securing clips or screws, confirm they are fastened securely.
Is the paper set?
Is your specified paper
size correct?
Is your specified paper
type correct?
Can you print a
configuration page?
Is the interface cable
between the printer and
your computer connected
securely?
Are you using a correct
interface cable?
Did you connect the
interface cable after
turning on the main
switch?
The type of interface cable you should use depends on your
computer. Be sure to use the correct one.
See “Parallel Interface cable” in Chapter 1.
If the cable is damaged or worn, replace it with a new one.
Check the interface cable is connected before turning on the
power switch.

Improving print quality
If you are not satisfied with the printout quality, check the problem and take
the necessary action to clear it.
✒ Note
•
It is possible that paper could meet all of the guidelines listed in the
specifications and still not print satisfactorily. This may be due to
temperature, humidity or other variables over which the printer has no
control. If you cannot clear print problems, consult the dealer where you
purchased the printer.

If the same print problem occurs after cleaning, take any of the following
actions:
• Make sure that you use paper, Transparencies, or envelopes that meet
the printer’s specifications.
• Check for glue on the paper. Glue causes toner to scatter.
• If toner scatters over the entire printing surface, adjust the print density.

Black Page
If an entire page is printed in black, make sure that the toner bottle is
properly installed. Never use heat-sensitive paper, or it may cause this
problem.

White Page
If nothing is printed on pages, make sure that the toner bottle is not empty
and that you are using paper, Transparencies, or envelopes that meet the
printer’s specifications.
If a stack of paper is not fanned, more than one sheet may be loaded at a
time, which may cause blank pages to be ejected.

Dropout
If the page has areas with missing print, make sure that the Toner bottle is
not empty or the Toner is evenly distributed in the bottle.
Also, make sure that you use paper, Transparencies or envelopes that meet
the printer’s specifications. Moist paper causes this problem.
If the print density is set too low, this problem may occur. Adjust the print
density to the proper setting.

Hex
1B 69
Format:
ESC i n … n \
Creates bar codes or expanded characters according to the segment of
parameters “n … n”. For further information about parameters, see the
following “Definition of Parameters.” This command must end with the
“ \ ” code (5CH).
[Definition of Parameters]
This bar code command can have the following parameters in the parameter
segment (n … n). Since parameters are effective within the single command
syntax ESC i n … n \, they don’t take effect in the subsequent bar code
commands. If certain parameters are not specified, they take the default
settings. The last parameter must be the bar code data start (“b” or “B”) or
the expanded character data start (“l” or “L”). Other parameters can be
specified in any sequence. The prefix of each parameter can be a lowercase or upper-case character: for example, “t0” or “T0”, “s3” or “S3”, etc.

Bar Code Data Start
n = “b” or “B”
Data that follows “b” or “B” is read in as bar code data. Bar code data must
end with the “ \ ” code (5CH), which also terminates this command. The
acceptable bar code data is subject to the bar code mode selected by “t” or
“T”.
•
When CODE 39 is selected with the parameter “t0” or “T0”:
Forty three characters “0” to “9”, “A” to “Z”, “-”, “ . ”, “ (space)”, “$”, “ / ”, “+”,
and “%” can be accepted as bar code data. Other characters cause data
error. The number of characters for bar codes is not limited. The bar code
data automatically starts and ends with an asterisk “ * ” (start character and
stop character). If the received data has an asterisk “ * ” at its beginning or
end, the asterisk is regarded as a start character or stop character.
•
When Interleaved 2 of 5 is selected with the parameter “t1” or “T1”:
Ten numerical characters “0” to “9” can be accepted as bar code data. Other
characters cause data error. The number of characters for bar codes is not
limited. Since this mode of bar codes require even characters, if the bar
code data has odd characters, the zero character “0” is automatically added
to the end of the bar code data.
•
When FIM (US-Post Net) is selected with the parameter “t3” or “T3”:
Characters “A” to “D” are valid and 1 digit of data can be printed. Uppercase
and lowercase alphabet characters can be accepted.
•
When Post Net (US-Post Net) is selected with the parameter “t4” or “T4”:
Characters “0” to “9” can be data and it must be terminated by a check digit.
“?” can be used in place of the check digit.
Appendix–28
APPENDICES
•
When EAN 8, EAN 13, or UPC A is selected with the parameter “t5” or “T5”:
Ten numerical characters “0” to “9” can be accepted as bar code data. The
number of characters for bar codes is limited as follows.
EAN 8:
EAN 13:
UPC A:
Total 8 digits (7 digits + 1 check digit)
Total 13 digits (12 digits + 1 check digit)
Total 12 digits (11 digits + 1 check digit)
A number of characters other than above causes data error and the bar
code data is printed as normal print data. If the check digit is incorrect, the
printer calculates the correct check digit automatically so that the correct bar
code data will be printed. When EAN13 is selected, adding “+” and a 2-or 5digit number after the data can create an add-on code.
•
When UPC-E is selected with the parameter “t6” or “T6”:
The numerical characters “0” to “9” can be accepted as bar code data.
(1)
8 digits
Standard format. The first character
must be “0” and the data must be terminated by
a check digit.
Total 8 digits = “0” + 6 digits + 1 check digit.
(2)
6 digits
The first character and the last
check digit are removed from the 8 digit data.
*1: For 8 digits, “?” can be used in place of a check digit.
*2: Adding “+” and 2- or 5-digit number after the data creates
an add-on code for all 6 and 8 digit formats.
•
When Codabar is selected with the parameter “t9” or “T9”:
Characters “0” to “9”, “-”, “ . ”, “$”, “/”, “+”, “ : ” can be printed. Characters “A”
to “D” can be printed as a start-stop code, which can be uppercase or
lowercase. If there is no start-stop code, errors occur. A check digit cannot
be added and using “?” causes errors.
•
When Code 128 Set A, Set B, or Set C is selected with the parameter “t12”
or “T12,” “t13” or “T13,” or “t14” or “T14” respectively:
Code 128 sets A, B and C are individually selectable. Set A encodes
characters Hex 00 … 5F. Set B encodes characters Hex 20 … 7F. Set C
encodes numeric pairs 00 … 99. Switching is allowed between the code
sets by sending %A, %B, or %C. FNC 1, 2, 3, and 4 are produced with %1,
%2, %3, and %4. The SHIFT code, %S, allows temporary switching (for 1
character only) from set A to set B and vice versa. The “%” character can be
encoded by sending it twice.
Appendix–29
•
When ISBN (EAN) is selected with the parameter “t130” or “T130”:
Same rules apply as for “t5” or “T5”
•
When ISBN (UPC-E) is selected with the parameter “t131” or “T131”:
Same rules apply as for “t6” or “T6”
•
When EAN 128 set A, set B or set C is selected with the parameter “t132” or
“T132”, “t133” or “T133” or “t134” or “T134” respectively:
Same rules apply as for “t12” or “T12”, “t13” or “T13”, or “t14” or “T14”.
