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 menu. (See
Paper Type on page 22.)
Recommended print media
2
2
To get the best print quality, we suggest using
Brother paper. (See the table below.)
If Brother paper is not available in your
country, we recommend testing various
papers before purchasing large quantities.

We recommend using “3M Transparency
Film” when you print on transparencies.

 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 you use 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.

Chapter 2
Handling and using print
media
Labels
2
 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
photo paper. Load photo paper with the
shiny side facing down.
 Avoid touching either side of
transparencies because they absorb
water and perspiration easily, and this
may cause decreased output quality.
Transparencies designed for laser
printers/copiers may stain your next
document. Use only transparencies
recommended for inkjet printing.
IMPORTANT
DO NOT use the following kinds of paper:
• Damaged, curled, wrinkled, or
irregularly shaped paper
1
2
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.
Types of labels to avoid
Do not use labels that are damaged, curled,
wrinkled or an unusual shape.
IMPORTANT
• DO NOT feed part used label sheets. The
exposed carrier sheet will damage your
machine.
• DO NOT reuse or insert labels that have
previously been used or are missing few
labels on the sheet.
Paper capacity of the output paper
tray cover
Up to 50 sheets of 80 g/m2 A4 paper.

2 mm or greater curl may cause jams
to occur.
• Extremely shiny or highly textured
paper
• Paper that cannot be arranged
uniformly when stacked
• Short grain paper

 Transparencies and photo paper must be
picked up from the output paper tray cover
one page at a time to avoid smudging.

The machine is initially set to Normal, which
lets the machine connect to a standard PSTN
(Public Switched Telephone Network) line.
However, many offices use a central
telephone system or Private Branch
Exchange (PBX). Your machine can be
connected to most types of PBX. The
machine's recall feature supports timed break
recall only (TBR). TBR will work with most
PBX systems allowing you to gain access to
an outside line, or transfer calls to another
extension. The feature works when Tel/R is
pressed.
Note
You can program a Tel/R key press as
part of a number stored in a One Touch
Dial or Speed Dial location. When
programming the One Touch Dial or
Speed Dial number, press Tel/R first (the
LCD shows “!”), then enter the telephone
number. If you do this, you do not need to
press Tel/R each time before you dial
using a One Touch Dial or Speed Dial

setting, you cannot use the One Touch
Dial or Speed Dial number that the Tel/R
press is programmed into.

Chapter 6
Connecting an external
TAD (telephone
answering device)
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.

message.
If you do not receive all your faxes,
shorten the Ring Delay setting on your
external TAD.

IMPORTANT
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
Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
Note
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.
6
Telephone and external devices
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.

Operation from external and
extension telephones
6
If you answer a fax call on an extension or an
external telephone, you can make your
machine take the call by using the Remote
Activation Code. When you press the Remote
Activation Code l 5 1, the machine starts to
receive the fax.
Your premises may already be wired with
parallel extension telephones, or you may
plan to add extension telephones to your line,
as well as your machine. While the simplest
arrangement is a straightforward parallel
connection, there are some problems with
this arrangement, the most obvious of which
is inadvertent interruption of a facsimile
transmission caused by someone picking up
an extension telephone to make an outgoing
call. Also, remote activation code may not
operate reliably in such a simple
configuration.
If the machine answers a voice call and fast
double-rings for you to take over, use the
Remote Deactivation Code # 5 1 to take the
call at an extension telephone. (See F/T Ring
Time (Fax/Tel mode only) on page 38.)
If you answer a call and no one is on
the line:
You should assume that you're receiving a
manual fax.
Press l 5 1 and wait for the chirp or until the
LCD shows Receiving, and then hang up.
Note
You can also use the Fax Detect feature to
make your machine automatically take the
call. (See Fax Detect on page 39.)
Using extension telephones
(U.K. only)
6
This machine may also be set to make a
delayed transmission (i.e. a transmission at a
pre-set time). This pre-set job may coincide
with someone picking up an extension
handset.
These problems can easily be eliminated, if
you arrange modification of your extension
wiring circuit, such that extension devices are
connected “downstream” of your machine in
a master/slave configuration (see fig. 2). In
this configuration the machine can always
detect whether a telephone is in use. Thus it
will not attempt to seize the line during that
time. This is known as “telephone off-hook
detection.”
The inadvisable configuration is shown in
figure 1, and the recommended master/slave
configuration is shown in figure 2.
This new connection configuration can be
arranged by contacting BT, Kingston upon
Hull Telecommunications, your PBX
maintainer or a qualified telephone
installation company as appropriate. Simply
explained, the extension telephone circuit
should be terminated on a normal modular
plug (BT 431A style), which in turn should be
put into the modular socket of the white “T”shaped connector provided as part of the line
cord assembly.

on page 39.)
If you answer a fax call at the external
telephone, you can make the machine
receive the fax by pressing Mono Start and
choose Receive.
Remote Deactivation Code

If you receive a voice call and the machine is
in F/T mode, it will start to sound the F/T Ring
(fast double-ring), after the initial ring delay. If
you pick up the call on an extension
telephone you can turn the F/T Ring off by
pressing # 5 1 (make sure you press this
between the rings).
If the machine answers a voice call and fast
double-rings for you to take over, you can
take the call at the external telephone by
pressing Tel/R.

Routine maintenance
Replacing the ink
cartridges
Your machine is equipped with an ink dot
counter. The ink dot counter automatically
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 tell you with a message on the LCD.
a
Open the ink cartridge cover.
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.
b
Press the lock release lever as shown to
release the cartridge indicated on the
LCD. Remove the cartridge from the
machine.
c
Open the new ink cartridge bag for the
colour shown on the LCD, and then take
out the ink cartridge.
A
The LCD will tell you 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.
IMPORTANT
Brother multifunction machines are
designed to work with ink of a particular
specification and will work to a level of
optimum performance and reliability when
used with Brother Original ink cartridges.
Brother cannot guarantee this optimum
performance and reliability if ink or ink
cartridges of other specifications are
used. Brother does not therefore
recommend the use of cartridges other
than Brother Original cartridges or the
refilling of used cartridges with ink from
other sources. If damage is caused to the
print head or other parts of this machine
as a result of using incompatible products
with this machine, any repairs required as
a result may not be covered by the
warranty.

e
Each colour has its own correct position.
Insert the ink cartridge in the direction of
the arrow on the label.
• 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 automatically reset the
ink dot counter for that colour. 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
cartridges, check that the ink cartridges

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.
• If ink gets on your skin or clothing
immediately wash it off with soap or
detergent.
Cleaning and checking
the machine
Cleaning the scanner glass
a
Unplug the machine from the electrical
socket.
b
Lift the document cover (1). Clean the
scanner glass (2) and the white
plastic (3) with a soft lint-free cloth
moistened with a non-flammable glass
cleaner.
• If you mix the colours by installing an ink
cartridge in the wrong position, clean the
print head several times after correcting
the cartridge installation.

• 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.
3
• DO NOT dismantle or tamper with the ink
cartridge, this can cause the ink to leak out
of the cartridge.

Routine maintenance
Cleaning the print head
Note
In addition to cleaning the glass strip with
a non-flammable glass cleaner, run your
finger tip over the glass strip to see if you
can feel anything on it. If you feel dirt or
debris, clean the glass strip again
concentrating on that area. You may need
to repeat the cleaning process three or
four times. To test, make a copy after each
cleaning attempt.
A
To maintain good print quality, the machine
will automatically clean the print head when
needed. You can start the cleaning process
manually if there is a print quality problem.
Clean the print head and ink cartridges if you
get a horizontal line in the text or graphics, or
blank text on your printed pages. You can
clean Black only, three colours at a time
(Yellow/Cyan/Magenta), or all four colours at
once.
Cleaning the print head consumes ink.
Cleaning too often uses ink unnecessarily.
i
IMPORTANT
When there is a
spot of dirt or
correction fluid
on the glass strip
the printed
sample shows a
vertical line.
After the glass
strip is cleaned
the vertical line is
gone.
DO NOT touch the print head. Touching
the print head may cause permanent
damage and may void the print head's
warranty.

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.
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.

Troubleshooting
Telephone Line or Connections
Difficulty
Suggestions
Dialling does not work.
(No dial tone)
Make sure the machine is plugged in and turned on.
Check the line cord connections.
Change the Tone/Pulse setting. (See the Quick Setup Guide.)
Lift the external telephone’s handset and listen for a dial tone. If there is no dial
tone, ask your telephone company to check the line and/or socket.
The machine does not answer
when called.
Make sure the machine is in the correct Receive Mode for your setup.
(See Choose the Receive Mode on page 36.) 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.
Receiving Faxes
Difficulty
Suggestions
Cannot receive a fax.
If you connect your machine to PBX or ISDN, set the menu setting of Telephone
Line Type to your telephone type. (See Setting the Telephone Line Type
on page 42.)
Sending Faxes
Difficulty
Suggestions
Cannot send a fax.
Check all line cord connections.
Make sure that the FAX
key is illuminated.
Ask the other party to check that the receiving machine has paper.
Print the Transmission Verification Report and check for an error. (See Reports in
chapter 6 of the Advanced User’s Guide.)
Transmission Verification Report
says ”RESULT:ERROR”.
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:ERROR” on the Transmission
Verification Report, your machine may be out of memory. To gain extra memory,
you can turn off Memory Receive (see Turning off Memory Receive operations in
chapter 4 of the Advanced User’s Guide), print fax messages in memory (see
Printing a fax from the memory in chapter 4 of the Advanced User’s Guide) or
cancel a Delayed Fax or Polling Job. (see Cancelling a fax in progress on page 33
and Checking and cancelling waiting jobs in chapter 3 of the Advanced User’s
Guide.) 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 menu setting of Compatibility to Basic(for VoIP).
(See Telephone line interference / VoIP on page 95.)
If you connect your machine to PBX or ISDN, set the menu setting of Telephone
Line Type to your telephone type. (See Setting the Telephone Line Type
on page 42.)
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 glass on page 68.)
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 glass
on page 68.)
91
B
Handling Incoming Calls
Difficulty
Suggestions
The machine “Hears” a voice as a
CNG Tone.
If Fax Detect 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 Fax Detect to Off.
(See Fax Detect on page 39.)
Sending a fax call to the machine.
If you answered on an extension or external telephone, press your Remote
Activation Code (the factory setting is l 5 1). If you answered on an external
telephone, press Start 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, 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 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 (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, a separate telephone line with no
custom features is recommended.

Troubleshooting
Dial Tone detection
When you send a fax automatically, by
default your machine will wait for a fixed
amount of time before it starts to dial the
number. By changing the Dial Tone setting to
Detection you can make your machine dial
as soon as it detects a dial tone. This setting
can save a small amount of time when
sending a fax to many different numbers. If
you change the setting and start having
problems with dialling you should change
back to the factory No Detection setting.

"Bella" (meaning "Beautiful" in Italian) and is a representation of the
"innovative" technology providing you with "beautiful" and "long
lasting" print results.
