What Brother will do:
If the problem reported concerning your

and Accessory Items is covered by this
warranty and if you first reported the problem
to Brother or an Authorized Service Center

Brother or an Authorized Service Center will
provide “On-site Warranty Service” during
“Normal Working Hours” and will repair the
Machine and/or accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items at no charge to you for
parts or labor. “On-site Warranty Service”
shall consist of the remedial service, as
necessitated by normal usage, to restore this
product to good operating condition at your
location
and
does
not
guarantee
uninterrupted operation of this Product.
“Normal Working Hours” shall mean 9:00am

Except for that repair as described above,

BROTHER MULTIFUNCTION CENTER/FACSIMILE MACHINE
LIMITED WARRANTY
(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 User’s Guide 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
User’s Guide 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 WAIVED.
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.
Warranty Service is available at Brother Authorized Service Centers throughout Canada. For

Chapter 1
About fax machines
How can you avoid possible
problems?
Custom features
A very good way to avoid problems like the
one mentioned, is to get a second phone
number on your present phone line.
Do you have Voice Mail on the phone
line?
If you have Voice Mail on the phone line
where you will install your new machine,
there is a strong possibility that Voice Mail
and the machine may conflict with each other
while receiving incoming calls.
Why should there be problems?
Since both the machine and Voice Mail will
pick up the call, after the number of rings you
have set, each of them has the ability to keep
the other from receiving calls.
For example, if Voice Mail is set to answer
after two rings and your machine is set to
answer after four, Voice Mail will stop your
machine from receiving faxes.
If you set Voice Mail and the Brother machine
to answer after 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 machine can pass
the call back to the other after the call has
been answered.
1-6
Many people with Voice Mail choose an
alternative service, which is called
“Distinctive Ring”, and they are very satisfied
with it.
(See Distinctive Ring on page 7-6.)
Another way to avoid possible problems is to
replace Voice Mail with an answering
machine. Your Brother machine is designed
to work with an answering machine or TAD
(telephone answering device).
(See Connecting an external telephone
answering device (TAD) on page 3-5.)
General Information
Fax tones and handshake
ECM (Error Correction Mode)
When someone is sending a fax, the fax
machine sends fax calling tones (CNG
tones). These are quiet, intermittent beeps
every 4-seconds. You’ll hear them after you
dial and press Black Start or Color Start and
they will continue for about 60 seconds after
dialing. During that time, the sending
machine must begin the “handshake” or
connection with the receiving machine.
The Error Correction Mode (ECM) is a way for
the machine to check a fax transmission
while it is in progress. If the machine detects
errors during fax transmission, it resends the
pages of the fax that had an error. ECM
transmissions are only possible between fax
machines that both have this feature. If they
do, you may send and receive fax messages
that are continuously being checked by the
machine.
Each time you use automatic procedures to
send a fax, you are sending CNG tones over
the phone line. You will soon learn to listen for
these quiet beeps each time you answer a
phone on your fax line, so you will know if you
are receiving a fax message.
If this feature stops working, delete your
faxes from the memory.
The receiving fax responds with fax receiving
tones, which are loud, chirping sounds. A
receiving fax chirps for about 40 seconds
over the phone line, and the LCD shows
Receiving.
If your machine is set to the Fax Only mode,
it will answer every call automatically with fax
receiving tones. If the other person hangs up,
your machine will continue to send the
“chirps” for about 40 seconds, and the LCD
continues to show Receiving. To cancel
receiving, press Stop/Exit.
The fax ‘handshake’ is the time in which the
sending machine’s CNG tones and the
receiving machine’s “chirps” overlap. This
must be for at least 2 to 4 seconds, so both
machines can understand how each is
sending and receiving the fax. The
handshake cannot begin until the call is
answered, and the CNG tones only last for
about 60 seconds after the number is dialed.
So it is important for the receiving machine to
answer the call in as few rings as possible.

Handling and using special
paper
Types of paper to avoid
CAUTION
The machine 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
purchasing to ensure desirable performance.
Some important guidelines when selecting
paper are:
■ Supplier should be informed that the
paper or envelopes will be used in a color
laser machine.
■ Preprinted paper must use inks that can
withstand the temperature of the
machine's fusing process (392 degrees
Fahrenheit or 200 degrees centigrade for
a period of 0.1 seconds).
■ If you have selected a cotton bond paper,
paper having a rough surface, such as
cockle or laid finished paper or paper that
is wrinkled or puckered, the paper may
exhibit degraded performance.
2-3
Some types of paper may not perform well
or may cause damage to your machine.
Do not use paper:
■ that is highly textured
■ that is extremely smooth or shiny
■ that is curled or warped
■ that is coated or has a chemical finish
■ that is damaged, creased or folded
■ that exceeds the recommended weight
specification in this guide
■ with tabs and staples
■ with letterheads using low temperature
dyes or thermography
■ that is multipart or carbonless
■ that is designed for inkjet printing
If you use any of the types of paper listed
above, they may damage your machine.
This damage is not covered under any
Brother warranty or service agreement.
Loading paper and documents
Envelopes
Note
Most envelopes will be suitable for your
machine. However, some envelopes will
have feed and print-quality problems
because of the way they have been made. A
suitable envelope should have edges with
straight, well-creased folds and the leading
edge should not be thicker than two pieces of
paper. The envelope should lie flat and not be
of baggy or flimsy construction. You should
buy quality envelopes from a supplier who
understands that you will be using the
envelopes in a laser machine.
■ Before you print envelopes, you must ‘fan’
the stack to avoid paper jams and
misfeeds.
Envelopes can only be fed from Tray#1.
■ For proper printing, you must choose the
same paper size from your software
application as the paper in the tray.
Note
Brother will not recommend a particular
envelope because envelope manufacturers
may change the envelope specifications. You
are responsible for the quality and
performance of the envelopes you use.
■ Before you print a lot of envelopes, test
one to make sure that the print results are
what you want.
■ Envelope joints that are sealed by the
manufacturer should be secure.
■ Do not put different types of paper in the
paper tray at the same time because it
may cause paper jams or misfeeds.
■ We recommend that you do not print
within 0.6 in. (15 mm) of the edges of
envelopes.
■ See Acceptable paper and other media on
page 2-1.
Before you put envelopes in the tray, check
the following:
■ Envelopes should have a lengthwise
sealing flap.
■ The sealing flaps should be folded crisply
and correctly (irregularly cut or folded
envelopes may cause paper jams).
■ Envelopes should consist of two layers of
paper in the area circled in Figure 1.

Types of envelopes to avoid
CAUTION
Do not use envelopes:
■ that are damaged, curled, wrinkled, or an unusual shape
■ that are extremely shiny or textured
■ with clasps, snaps or tie strings
■ with self-adhesive closures
■ that are of a baggy construction
■ that are not sharply creased
■ that are embossed (have raised writing on them)
■ that were previously printed by a laser machine
■ that are pre-printed on the inside
■ that cannot be arranged neatly when stacked
■ that are made of paper that weighs more than the paper weight specifications for the
machine
■ with edges that are not straight or consistently square
■ with windows, holes, cut-outs or perforations
■ with sealing flaps that have not been folded at purchase
■ with sealing flaps as shown in Figure 2
■ with each side folded as shown in Figure 3
If you use any of the types of envelopes listed above, they may damage your machine. This
damage is not covered under any Brother warranty or service agreement.

Loading paper and documents
Labels and transparencies
The machine will print on most types of labels
and transparencies designed for use with a
laser machine. Labels should have an
adhesive that is acrylic-based 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 machine, because the label stock may
stick to the OPC belt 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 length and width of the sheet. Using
labels with spaces may result in labels
peeling off and causing serious jams or print
problems.
All labels and transparencies used in this
machine must be able to withstand a
temperature of 392 degrees Fahrenheit (200
degrees centigrade) for a period of 0.1
seconds.
Types of labels and transparencies to
avoid
Do not use labels or transparencies that are
damaged, curled, wrinkled or an unusual
shape.
CAUTION
■ Avoid feeding labels with the carrier
sheet exposed because your machine
will be damaged.
■ When feeding transparencies, use the
recommended type for laser machines.
For detailed information on the
specification of the proper
transparencies to purchase, call your
dealer or Brother Customer Service.
Label and transparency sheets should not
exceed the paper weight specifications
described in this User's Guide. Labels and
transparencies exceeding this specification
may not feed or print properly and may cause
damage to your machine.
Transparencies and labels can be fed from
Tray 1 only.

LCD Contrast
Roll over phone lines
You can change the contrast to help the LCD
look lighter or darker.
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 machine 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 machine 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 machine 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 machine 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 machine. (See Easy Receive on
page 6-5.)

Converting telephone wall
outlets
There are three ways to convert to an RJ11
jack. 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
machine is on Line 1, plug the machine into
L1 of the triplex adapter. If your machine is on
Line 2, plug it into L2 of the triple adapter.
Triplex Adapter
1
Place the two-line TAD and the two-line
telephone next to your machine.
2
Plug one end of the telephone line cord
for your machine into the L2 jack of the
triplex adapter. Plug the other end into
the LINE jack on the back of the
machine.
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

machine.

Installing machine, 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 machine must be
isolated on one line at both the wall jack and
at the TAD. The most common connection is
to put the machine on Line 2, which is
explained in the following steps. The back of
the two-line 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 machine and two for your external
two-line TAD. You will need a fourth line cord
if you add a two-line telephone.
3-4
You can keep two-line telephones on other
wall outlets as always. There are two ways to
add a two-line telephone to the machine’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.
Setup
Multi-line connections (PBX)
Most offices use a central telephone system.
While it is often relatively simple to connect
the machine 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 machine for you. It is advisable to have a
separate line for the machine.
Connecting an external or
extension telephone
You can connect a separate telephone to
your machine as shown in the diagram below.
Connect the telephone line cord to the jack
labeled EXT. in the left of the machine.
3
Extension
Telephone
If the machine 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.
External

If you are installing the machine to
work with a PBX

It is not guaranteed that the unit will
operate properly under all
circumstances with a PBX. Any cases of
difficulty should be reported first to the
company that handles your PBX.
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.
When you are using an external phone, the
LCD shows Telephone.
Connecting an external
telephone answering device
(TAD)
Sequence
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.
3-5
Chapter 3
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.
Improper Setup
Unless you are using Distinctive Ring,
do not connect a TAD elsewhere on the
same phone line.
TAD
Note
TAD
■ If you do not receive all your faxes, reduce
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.
■ If You Do Not Subscribe to 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
phone line. (See illustration shown next.)
3-6
When the TAD answers a call, the LCD
shows Telephone.
Connections
The external TAD must be plugged into the
back of the machine, into the jack labeled
EXT. Your machine cannot work properly if
you plug the TAD into a wall jack (unless you
are using Distinctive Ring).
1
Plug the telephone line cord from the
telephone wall jack into the back of the
machine, in the jack labeled LINE.
2
Plug the telephone line cord from your
external TAD into the back of the
machine, in the jack labeled EXT. (Make
sure this cord is connected to the TAD at
the TAD’s telephone line jack, and not
its handset jack.)

Set your external TAD to four rings or
less. (The machine’s Ring Delay setting
does not apply.)

Sleep Time
Mode Timer
Setting the Sleep Time reduces power
consumption by turning off the fuser inside
the machine while it is idle. You can choose
how long the machine is idle (from 00 to 99
minutes) before it goes into sleep mode. The
timer is automatically reset when the machine
receives a Fax or PC data or makes a copy.
The factory setting is 30 minutes. While the
machine is in sleep mode you will see Sleep
on the LCD. If you try to print or copy in sleep
mode, there will be a short delay while the
fuser warms up to its working temperature.
The machine has three temporary mode keys
on the control panel: Fax, Scan and Copy.
You can change the number of seconds or
minutes the machine takes after the last Scan
or Copy operation before it returns to Fax

Receive Mode
There are four different Receive Modes for your machine. You can choose the mode that best
suits your needs.
LCD
How it works
When to use it
Fax Only
The machine automatically
answers every call as a fax.
For dedicated fax lines.
The machine controls the
line and automatically
answers every call. If the call
is a fax it will receive the fax.
If the call is not a fax it will
ring (pseudo/double ring) for
you to pick up the call.
Use this mode if you expect to receive lots of fax messages
and few telephone calls. You cannot have an answering
machine on the same line, even if it is on a separate
telephone wall jack on the same line. You cannot use the
telephone company’s Voice Mail in this mode.
The external answering
device (TAD) automatically
answers every call.
Use this mode if you have connected an answering
machine to the EXT jack of your machine.
(automatic receive)
Fax/Tel
(fax and telephone)
(with an external or
extension telephone only)
External TAD
(with an external
answering device only)
Voice messages are stored
on the external TAD. If it is a
fax call, the machine
receives the fax.
Manual
(manual receive)
(with an external or
extension telephone only)
You control the phone line
and must answer every call
yourself unless you are using
the Distinctive Ring feature.

The External TAD setting works only with an external
answering machine. Ring Delay does not work in this
setting.
Use this mode if you do not receive many fax messages,
use Distinctive Ring, or if you are using a computer on the
same line.
If you answer and hear fax tones, wait until the machine
takes over the call, then hang up. (See Easy Receive on

pseudo/double-ring when you have a voice
call. (If it’s a fax call, the machine receives the
fax.)
This pseudo/double-ring happens after the
initial ringing from the phone company. Only
the machine rings and no other phones on the
same line will ring with the special
pseudo/double-ring. However, you can still
answer the call on any telephone on the same
line as the machine. (See For Fax/Tel mode

Printing a reduced incoming
fax (Auto Reduction)
Receiving a fax at the end of a
conversation
If you choose On, the machine automatically
reduces an incoming fax to fit on one page of
Letter, Legal or A4 size paper. The machine
calculates the reduction ratio by using the
page size of the fax and size of the paper in
your tray.
At the end of a conversation you can ask the
other party to fax you information before you

Dialing and phone options
Access codes and credit card
numbers
Sometimes you may want to choose from
several long distance carriers when you
make a call. Rates may vary depending on
the time and destination. To take advantage
of low rates, you can store the access codes
or long-distance carriers and credit card
numbers as One-Touch and Speed-Dial
numbers. You can store these long dialing
sequences by dividing them and setting them
up on separate One-Touch and Speed Dial
numbers in any combination. You can even
include manual dialing using the dial pad.
(See Storing One-Touch Dial numbers on
page 7-3 and Storing Speed-Dial numbers on
page 7-4.)
For example, perhaps you have stored ‘555’
on One-Touch key 1 and ‘7000’ on
One-Touch key 2. If you press One-Touch
key 1, One-Touch key 2, and Black Start or
Color 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 could press One-Touch key 1
and then press 7001 using the dial pad.
Tone or Pulse
If you have a Pulse dialing service, but need
to send Tone signals (for example, for
telephone banking), follow the instructions
below. If you have Touch Tone service, you
will not need this feature to send tone signals.

Lift the handset of the external phone
and press Hook or the machine’s

Press # on the machine’s control panel.
Any digits dialed after this will send tone
signals.
Phone line services
Your machine supports the Distinctive Ring
and Caller ID subscriber telephone services
that some telephone companies offer.
Note
■ If you have Voice Mail, Call Waiting, Call
Waiting/Caller ID, RingMaster, an
answering service, an alarm system or
other custom features on your telephone
line, it may affect the way your machine
works. (See Custom features on page 1-6
and Custom features on a single line. on
page C-12.)
■ If you have Voice Mail on your phone line,
please read the following carefully.

Distinctive Ring
Brother uses the term ‘Distinctive Ring’ but
different telephone companies have other
names for this service such as SmartRing,
RingMaster, Teen-Ring, Indent-a-Call or
Indent-a-Ring.
What does your telephone company’s
‘Distinctive Ring’ do?
Your telephone company’s Distinctive Ring
service allows you to have more than one
number on the same phone line. If you need
more than one phone number, it is
cheaper than paying for an extra 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
machine.
Note
Please call your telephone company for
availability and rates.
When you hang up, the machine will
return to the Pulse dialing service.
7-6
Chapter 7
What does Brother’s ‘Distinctive Ring’
do?
Before you choose the ring pattern to
register
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
phone number on your line can just receive
faxes.
You can only register one Distinctive Ring
pattern with the machine. Some ring patterns
cannot be registered. The ring patterns below
are supported by your Brother machine.
Register the one your telephone company
gives you.
Note
You must pay for your telephone company’s
Distinctive Ring service before you program
the machine to work with it.

Do you have Voice Mail?
If you have Voice Mail on the phone 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 phone number, neither will
interfere with the other’s operations.
If you decide to get the Distinctive Ring
service from the telephone company, you will
need to follow the directions on next page to
‘register’ the new Distinctive Ring pattern
they give you. This is so your machine 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 turn it back on later. When
you get a new fax number, make sure you
reset this feature.
7-7
Note
If the ring pattern you received is not on this
chart, please 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 fax 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 properly, it will
recognize the registered ring pattern of the
‘fax number’ within 2 ring patterns and
then answer with a fax tone. When the
‘voice number’ is called, the machine will
not answer.

Caller ID
Note
The Caller ID feature lets you use the Caller
ID subscriber service offered by many local
telephone companies. This service displays
the telephone number, or name if it is
available, of your caller as the line rings.
After a few rings, the LCD shows the
telephone number of your caller (and name, if
available). Once you pick up the external
phone’s 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 display means call
originated outside your Caller ID service
area.
■ Private Call display means the caller
has intentionally blocked transmission of
information.
You can print a list of Caller ID information
received by your machine. (See Printing
Caller ID List on page 7-9.)
Caller ID service varies with different carriers.

area.

WARNING
■ To prevent injuries, be careful not to
put your fingers in the area shown in
the illustrations.
■ Do not use a vacuum cleaner to clean up scattered toner. Doing this might cause the toner
dust to ignite inside the vacuum cleaner, potentially starting a fire. Please carefully clean
the toner dust with a clean dry soft, lint-free cloth and dispose of it according to local
regulations.
■ Do not use flammable substances near the machine. Doing this might cause a fire or
electrical shock.
■ If the machine becomes hot, blows smoke, or generates obscure odor, immediately turn off
the power switch and unplug the machine from the AC power outlet. Call your Brother
dealer or Brother Customer Service.
■ If metal objects, water or other liquids get inside the machine, immediately turn off the power
switch and unplug the machine from the AC power outlet. Call your Brother dealer or
Brother Customer Service.
■ Do not put consumable items such as the toner cartridges and the waste toner pack into a
fire. Some consumable items can be flammable under certain conditions.
■ Do not look directly at the laser beam light. It might cause damage to your eyesight. Do not
remove or break open the machine's safety interlocks.
■ Do not run the machine with the inside cover, front cover and back covers open and the
interlocks removed.

Troubleshooting and routine maintenance
If you are having difficulty with your machine
If you think there is a problem with the way your faxes look, make a copy first. If the copy looks
good, the problem is probably not your machine. Check the chart below and follow the
troubleshooting tips.
The Brother Solutions Center offers the latest FAQs and troubleshooting tips.
Visit us at http://solutions.brother.com.
DIFFICULTY
SUGGESTIONS
Printing or Receiving Faxes
Condensed print and horizontal
streaks or the top and bottom of
sentences are cut off.
You probably had a bad connection, with static or interference on the telephone
line. Ask the other party to send the fax again.
Poor print quality
See Improving the print quality on page C-16.
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 faxes are divided and printed on two pages or if you get an extra
blank page, turn on the Auto Reduction menu setting. (See Printing a reduced
incoming fax (Auto Reduction) on page 6-4.)
Received color fax prints only in
black & white.
Replace the color toner cartridges that are empty or nearly empty, and then ask
the other person to send the color fax again. (See Replacing a toner cartridge on
page C-29.) When Fax Forwarding, Paging or Fax Storage is turned on a color fax
can only be received if the sending machine could convert it to black & white.
(See Turning off Remote Fax Options on page 8-4.)
Phone Line or Connections
Dialing does not work.
Check for a dial tone. Change Tone/Pulse setting. (See Tone or Pulse on
page 7-6.) Check all line cord connections. Check power cord connection. Send a
manual fax by pressing Hook or by lifting the handset of the external phone and
dialing the number. Wait to hear fax receiving tones before pressing Black Start
or Color Start.
The machine does not answer
when called.
Make sure the machine is in the correct receiving mode for your setup.
(See Receive Mode on page 6-1.) Check for a dial tone. If possible, call your
machine 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 machine, ask your telephone
company to check the line.

DIFFICULTY
SUGGESTIONS
Sending Faxes
Poor fax send quality
Change 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 glass on page C-22.)
Transmission Verification Report
says ‘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 get ‘RESULT:NG’ on the Transmission
Verification Report, your machine may be out of memory. To gain extra memory,
you can turn off Fax Storage, Paging or PC-FAX receive (see Turning off Remote
Fax Options on page 8-4), print fax messages in memory (see Printing a fax from
the memory on page 6-6) or cancel a Delayed Fax or Polling Job (see Canceling
a fax in progress on page 5-2). If the problem continues, ask the telephone
company to check your phone line.
If you frequently get transmission errors due to possible interference on the phone
line, try changing the Compatibility setting to Normal or Basic.
(See Compatibility on page C-20.)
Vertical black lines when sending.
If the copy you made shows the same problem, your scanner is dirty.
(See Cleaning the scanner glass on page C-22.)
Handling Incoming Calls
Machine ‘Hears’ Voice as 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 calling fax machine
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 6-5.)
Sending a Fax Call to the machine.
If you answered on an external or extension phone, press your Fax Receive Code
(default setting is ( 51). When your machine answers, hang up.
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 machine, it may create a problem sending or receiving faxes.
For Example: Your Brother machine handles the Caller ID subscriber service.
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 faxes. 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.
Menu Setting Difficulties
The machine beeps when you try
to access the Setup Receive and
Setup Send menus.
If the Fax
key is not illuminated, press it to turn on Fax mode. The Setup
Receive setting (Menu/Set, 2, 1) and Setup Send setting (Menu/Set, 2, 2) are
available only when the machine is in Fax mode.
Copy Quality Difficulties
Vertical streaks appear in copies.

Note
■ Discard the used consumable item according to local regulations, keeping it separate from
domestic waste. If you have questions, call your local waste disposal office. Be sure to re-seal
the consumable item tightly so that the material inside does not spill.
■ We recommend placing used consumable items on a piece of paper or cloth to prevent
accidentally spilling or scattering the material inside.
■ If you use paper that is not a direct equivalent for the recommended paper, the life of
consumable items and machine parts may be reduced.
■ The projected life for each of the items listed is based on an average of 5% coverage of the
printable area using any color toner cartridge. Frequency of replacement will vary depending
on the complexity of printed pages, percentage of coverage and type of media used.

CAUTION
■ Brother strongly recommends that you
do not refill the toner cartridges
provided with your machine. We also
strongly recommend that you continue
to use only Genuine Brother Brand
replacement toner cartridges. Use or
attempted use of potentially
incompatible toner 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 toner
and/or cartridges. To protect your
investment and obtain premium
performance from the Brother
machine, we strongly recommend the
use of Genuine Brother Supplies.
■ Printing with a third-party toner or
third-party toner cartridges may reduce
not only the print quality but also the
quality and life of the machine itself. It
may also cause serious damage to the
performance and life of a OPC belt
cartridge. Warranty coverage does not
apply to problems caused by the use of
third-party toner or third-party toner
cartridges.
■ Wait to unpack the toner cartridge until
immediately before you install it in the
machine. If a toner cartridge is left
unpacked for a long period of time, the
toner life is shortened.
