Setting the Document
You can scan the document for copying from either the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) or
from the glass platen.
Using the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder)
The automatic document feeder (ADF) can hold up to 30 pages, feeding each one individually
through the machine. Use standard (75 g/m2) paper when using the ADF. Always fan the pages
well before placing them in the ADF.
Recommended Environment
Temperature: 20-30˚C (68-86˚F)
Humidity:
50%-70%
DO NOT use curled, wrinkled, folded, or ripped paper, or paper with
staples, paper clips, paste or tape attached. DO NOT use cardboard,
newspaper, or fabric. (To copy or scan this kind of document, see Using
the Glass Platen, page 3.)
■ Make sure documents written with ink are completely dry.
■ Documents must be from 14.8 to 21.6 cm wide, and from 14.8 to 35.6 cm long.
1
Fan the pages and stagger them at a 30 degree angle. Insert the pages face up, top edge first
in the ADF until you feel them touch the feed roller.
2
Adjust the paper guides to fit the width of your pages.
3

Advice for Preparation and Simple Use Guide
Choosing a Location
Place the machine on a flat, stable surface, such as a desk. Select a place that is free of vibration and
shocks. Locate the machine near a standard earthed electrical socket.
Avoid placing the machine where it may be knocked. Do not place near
heaters, air conditioners, water, chemicals or refrigerators. Do not expose
the machine to direct sunlight, excessive heat, moisture or dust. Do not
connect the machine to electrical outlets controlled by wall switches or
automatic timers as disruption of power can wipe out information in the
unit’s memory. Do not connect the machine 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. Ensure the airflow from the fan on the right hand side of
the machine is not impeded.
We recommend that this product be used with a surge protection device to
protect the product against damage caused by a lightning strike.
4
Connecting the Power Cord
PREPARATION
AND SIMPLE USE
This machine must be fitted with an earthed plug.
IMPORTANT:
If you need to remove the moulded mains plug in order to fit an appropriate
type, you must discard the moulded plug immediately having cut it off, in
order that it is not inadvertently inserted into a live socket, thus presenting
a shock hazard. The wires in the mains lead of this appliance are coloured
in accordance with the following code.
• Green-and-yellow : Earth
• Blue
: Neutral
• Brown
: Live
As the wires in the mains lead of this apparatus may not correspond with the
coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as
follows:
The wire which is coloured green-and-yellow must be connected to the
terminal in the plug which is marked by the letter “E” or by the safety earth
symbol
or coloured green or green-and-yellow.
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is
marked with the letter “N” or coloured black.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which
is marked with the letter “L” or coloured red.

The Brother Resource Manager application must be running for you to use the machine with your
Windows® computer. MFC Software Suite and the Printer Driver automatically load the Resource
Manager, as needed. The Resource Manager allows the single bi-directional Parallel port on the
machine to simulate a Communications port for scanning and to simulate a Parallel port for
Windows® GDI printing.
Enhanced Memory Management
Printing From Your PC
Multi-Purpose Sheet Feeder
The machine’s multi-purpose sheet feeder can feed plain paper, envelopes, transparencies, post card,
label and organizer paper. When the machine receives data from your computer, it begins the print
process by loading paper from the multi-purpose sheet feeder.
■ Select the print command from your PC.
Your PC sends a print command and data to the machine. If there are more pages, the machine begins
to print the next page automatically.
You may select the proper paper source, paper size, and 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.

PRINTER/SCANNER
The machine has its own Data Compression Technology, which automatically compresses graphic
data and downloads font data efficiently into the MFC’s memory. You can avoid memory errors and
print most full-page, 600 dpi graphic and text data, including larger fonts, with the machine’s
standard memory.
Two-Sided Printing (Manual Duplex)
The supplied printer drivers for Windows® 95/98/98SE/Me and Windows NT® Workstation
Version 4.0 support manual duplex printing. (For more information, see the Help screen for the
printer driver.)
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. If
the paper “double-feeds” (sends two sheets at once), hold the stack of paper except for the front sheet
while the paper is feeding.
Multi-purpose
Sheet Feeder
When you use manual duplexing, it is possible that a paper jam may occur
or the printer quality might not be satisfactory.
Loading Envelopes
You can load up to 10 envelopes into the Multi-purpose sheet feeder. Press down and hold the blue
lever on the right as you load the envelopes and slide the paper guides to fit. Make sure envelopes
are inserted in the direction shown below.

Using ScanSoft™ PaperPort® for Brother and ScanSoft™ TextBridge®
ScanSoft™ Paper Port® for Brother is a document management application. You will use PaperPort ®
to view scanned documents. PaperPort® has a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, filing system that will
help you organize your documents. It allows you to combine or “stack” documents of different
formats for printing or filing. PaperPort® can be accessed through the PaperPort® program group.
To Uninstall PaperPort® and ScanSoft™ TextBridge®
Select Start, Settings, Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs and the
Install/Uninstall tab. Select PaperPort® from the list and click the Add/Remove
button.
Viewing Items in ScanSoft™ PaperPort® for Brother
PaperPort® 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® Desktop. You can see PaperPort® items (MAX files) and non-PaperPort® items (files
created using other applications).
Non-PaperPort® items include an icon that indicates the application that was used to create the item;
a non-PaperPort® item is represented by a small rectangular thumbnail and not an actual image.
Page View displays a close-up of a single page and you can open a PaperPort ® item by doubleclicking on it. As long as you have the appropriate application on your computer to display it, you
can also double-click a non-PaperPort® item to open it.

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. 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.)

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.

you can use your own OCR application.
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. You can export formats
BMP, PCX, DCX, JPG, TIF, PDF, PNG, FPX, HFX, or self-viewing. 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.

Scan Type
Black & White: Set the Scan Type to Black & White for text or line art.
Grey Scale: For photographic images, set the Scan Type to Grey (Error Diffusion) or True Grey.
Colours: Choose either 256 Colour, which scans up to 256 colours, 24 Bit colour which scans up to
16.8 million colours. Although using 24 Bit colour creates an image with the most accurate colours,
the image file will be approximately three times larger than a file created with 256 Colour.
Brightness
Adjusting the brightness settings to obtain the best image. The Brother MFC Software Suite 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.
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 Colour Type settings, but
it is not available when Black & White is selected as the Colour Type.
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 grey areas. Instead of using the slidebar, you can type a value in the box to set the contrast.
Size
Set the Size to one of the following:
◆ Letter (8 1/2 x 11 inches)
◆ A4 (210 x 297 mm)
◆ Legal (8 1/2 x 14 inches)
◆ A5 (148 x 210 mm)
◆ B5 (182 x 257 mm)
◆ Executive (7 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches)
◆ Business Card (60 x 90 mm)
◆ Custom (User adjustable from 0.35 x 0.35 inches to 8.5 x 14 inches)
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 x 90 mm) size setting and place the business
card at the centre of the scanner glass.
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.

Diffusion is a method for creating simulated grey images by placing black dots in a specific matrix
instead of true grey dots.)
True Grey—also is used for documents containing photographic images or graphics. This mode is
more exact because it uses up to 256 shades of grey. It requires the most memory and longest transfer

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

What Does the Remote Printer Console Do?
The Remote Printer Console (RPC) is a utility program that can run in the DOS environment:
This program allows you to change various printer settings such as emulation, print quality, fonts,
page setup etc., from your computer screen. Since most DOS applications have a Printer Settings
menu that overrides the settings made by the RPC, you may not have to use this utility program. This
utility program is useful for application software that does not control the printer’s settings and
features.
Installing the Remote Printer Console
Before you install the program, make sure you have the following hardware and software to install
the program:
DOS
Version 3.3 or later
Monitor
EGA/VGA or compatible

SUGGESTIONS
Copy Quality Difficulties
Vertical streaks appear in
copies.
Sometimes you may see vertical streaks on your copies. Either the
scanner or the primary corona wire for printing is dirty. Clean them
both.
Print Quality Difficulties
Printed pages are curled.
Thin Paper (64-69 g/m2) can cause this problem. Make sure you
select the Paper Type that suits the paper in your multi-purpose
sheet feeder. (See Paper Type, page 20 and Media Type, page 27.)
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 20 and Media Type, page 27.)
Printouts are too dark or light. Adjust the print conditions by setting the Print Density function, it
has been factory set to the middle position. (See Setting the Print
Density, page 11.)
Printed pages contain white
stripes.
You may fix this by wiping the scanner windows with a clean soft
cloth. (See Regular Maintenance, page 71 and Cleaning the Drum
Unit, page 73.) If you still see white stripes or faint images and the
display shows CHANGE DRUM SOON, replace the drum unit
with a new one.
White Stripes or Faint Images
Printed pages have white
spots in black text and
graphic areas.
Make sure that you use paper that meets the specifications. (See

SUGGESTIONS
Wipe the electric terminals. Also, do not use heat-sensitive paper as
it will cause this problem. After cleaning, if the printed pages are
still black and the display shows CHANGE DRUM SOON,
replace the drum unit with a new one.

White page
Printed pages are marked
regular intervals.
Markings may disappear by themselves. Try copying at multiple
pages to clear this problem. Markings may occur if the machine has
not been used for a long time. A possible cause is that the surface of
the drum is 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 centre 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
machine 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 Regular Maintenance, page
71.) If a blurred page occurs after cleaning and the display shows
CHANGE DRUM SOON, replace the drum unit with a new one.
Adjust the print conditions by changing the Print Density setting.

Replacing the Toner Cartridge
The machine can print approximately 2,200 pages with one toner cartridge (TN-8000). When the
toner cartridge is running low, the display shows CHANGE TONER. The machine is supplied with
a starter toner cartridge that must be replaced after approximately 2,200 pages. Actual page count
will vary depending on your average document type (i.e. standard letter, detailed graphics). The
above specifications relate to a 5% black coverage A4 size document.
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, consult
with Brother dealer for service. 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
waste.
It is recommended that you clean the machine when you replace the toner.
Toner Empty Indicator
When the toner cartridge is running low, the display shows CHANGE TONER and the Toner
Empty LED on the control panel flashes on and off to indicate the toner is low.
Toner Empty Icon
Display
The Toner Empty LED light stays on and the display shows TONER EMPTY to indicate that the
toner is empty. Once this indication appears, the machine will not resume printing until you have
installed a new toner cartridge.
Steps for Replacing Toner Cartridge
After you have just used the machine, some internal parts of the machine
will be extremely HOT! So, never touch the shaded parts shown in the

Wait to unpack the toner cartridge until immediately before you install it
into the machine. If a toner cartridge is left unpacked for a long period of
time, the toner life is shortened.
You can use only a genuine Brother toner cartridge (TN-8000 series),
which is specially formulated to ensure top print quality. Using another
brand of toner cartridge may void the machine’s warranty.
Gently rock the toner cartridge from side to side five or six times, and then remove the protective
seal.

Replacing the Drum Unit
When removing the drum unit, handle carefully because it contains toner.
When you replace the drum unit, you should clean the machine.
The drum unit is a consumable, 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 toner that you use and the number of pages per print
job, etc. The drum life is estimated at approximately 8,000 pages at 1 page per
job. 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.
Troubleshooting and Maintenance

MAINTENANCE
The machine uses a drum unit to create the print images on paper. If the screen displays CHANGE
DRUM SOON, the drum unit is nearly at the end of its life. Prepare a new drum unit to replace the
current one. You may need to order one from your Brother dealer.
Even if the display shows CHANGE DRUM SOON, you may be able to continue to print without
replacing the drum unit for a while. However, if there is a noticeable deterioration in the output print
quality even before CHANGE DRUM SOON is shown, then the drum unit should be replaced. You
should clean the machine when you replace the drum unit.
For best performance, use only genuine Brother toner, and the product should be used only in a clean,
dust-free environment with adequate ventilation.
After you have just used the machine, some internal parts of the machine
will be extremely HOT! So please be careful.
Follow these steps to replace the drum unit:
