cartridge cover.
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 shake the ink cartridges. If ink
stains your skin or clothing, wash with soap
or detergent at once.
• DO NOT repeatedly insert and remove the
cartridges. If you do so, ink may seep out of
the cartridge.
Note
The machine will prepare the ink tube system for
printing. This process will take approximately four
minutes. Do not turn off the machine.
• If you mix the colors by installing an ink
cartridge in the wrong position, clean the
print head several times after correcting the
cartridge installation. (See Cleaning the
print head in Appendix A in the Advanced
User’s Guide on the documentation
CD-ROM.)
• Once you open an ink cartridge, install it in
the machine and use it up within six months
of installation. Use unopened ink cartridges
by the expiration date written on the
cartridge package.
• DO NOT dismantle or tamper with the ink
cartridge, this can cause the ink to leak out
of the cartridge.
• Brother strongly recommends that you do
not refill the ink cartridges provided with
your machine. We also strongly recommend
that you continue to use only Genuine
Brother Brand replacement ink cartridges.
Use or attempted use of potentially
incompatible ink and/or cartridges in the
Brother machine may cause damage to the
machine and/or may result in unsatisfactory
print quality. Our warranty coverage does
not apply to any problem that is caused by
the use of unauthorized third party ink
and/or cartridges. To protect your
investment and obtain premium
performance from the Brother machine, we
strongly recommend the use of Genuine
Brother Supplies.

Choose the correct Receive Mode
The correct Receive Mode is determined by the external devices and telephone subscriber services (Voice Mail,
Distinctive Ring, etc.) you have (or will be using) on the same line as the Brother machine.
Will you be using a Distinctive Ring number for receiving faxes?
Brother uses the term “Distinctive Ring” but telephone companies may have other names for this service such
as Custom Ringing, RingMaster, Personalized Ring, Teen Ring, Ident-A-Call, and Smart Ring. See Distinctive
Ring in chapter 6 in the Basic User’s Guide for instruction on setting up your machine using this feature.
Will you be using Voicemail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine?
If you have Voice Mail on the same telephone line as your Brother machine, there is a strong possibility that
Voice Mail and the Brother machine will conflict with each other when receiving incoming calls. See Voice Mail
in chapter 6 in the Basic User’s Guide for instructions on setting up your machine using this service.
Will you be using a Telephone Answering Device on the same telephone line as your Brother machine?
Your external telephone answering device (TAD) will automatically answer every call. Voice messages are
stored on the external TAD and fax messages are printed. Choose External TAD as your receive mode. See
the instructions below. For additional information see Connecting an External TAD in chapter 6 in the Basic
User’s Guide.
Will you be using your Brother machine on a dedicated fax line?
Your machine automatically answers every call as a fax. Choose Fax Only as your receive mode. See the
instructions below.
Will you be using your Brother machine on the same line as your telephone?
Do you want to receive voice calls and faxes automatically?
The Fax/Tel receive mode is used when sharing the Brother machine and your telephone on the same
line. Choose Fax/Tel as your receive mode. See the instructions below. For additional information see
Fax/Tel in chapter 5 in the Basic User’s Guide for instructions on setting up and using this receive mode.
Important Note: You cannot receive voice messages on either Voice Mail or an answering machine
when choosing the Fax/Tel mode.
Do you expect to receive very few faxes?
Choose Manual as your receive mode. You control the phone line and must answer every call yourself.
See the instructions below.

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991
makes it unlawful for any person to use a
computer or electronic device to send any
message via a telephone fax machine unless
such messages clearly contain, in a margin at the
top or bottom of each transmitted page, or on the
first page of the transmission, the date and time it
is sent and an identification of the business or
other entity or other individual sending the
message and the telephone number of the
sending machines or such business, other entity
or individual.

For Wireless Network Users
For wireless network interface users
17
Before you begin
First you must configure the wireless network settings of your machine to communicate with your network access
point/router. After the machine is configured to communicate with your access point/router, computers on your
network will have access to the machine. To use the machine from these computers, you will need to install the
drivers and software. The following steps will guide you through the configuration and installation process.
To achieve optimum results with normal everyday document printing, place the Brother machine as close to the
network access point/router as possible with minimal obstructions. Large objects and walls between the two
devices as well as interference from other electronic devices can affect the data transfer speed of your documents.
Due to these factors, wireless may not be the best method of connection for all types of documents and
applications. If you are printing large files, such as multi-page documents with mixed text and large graphics, you
may want to consider choosing USB for the fastest throughput speed.
IMPORTANT
If you have previously configured the wireless settings of the machine you must reset the network
(LAN) settings before you can configure the wireless settings again.
On your machine, press Menu. Press a or b to choose Network and press OK.
Press a or b to choose Network Reset, and then press OK.
Press 1 twice for Yes to accept the change.

Confirm your network environment (Infrastructure Mode)
The following instructions will offer two methods for installing your Brother machine in a wireless network
environment.
a
If your wireless access point/router does not support Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) or AOSS™, write
down the wireless network settings of your wireless access point/router in the area below.
IMPORTANT
Please do not contact Brother Customer Service for assistance without the wireless security
information. We cannot assist you in locating your network security settings.
Item
Record the current wireless network settings
Network Name: (SSID/ESSID)
Password (Network Key)
* The Password may also be described as the Network Key, Security Key or Encryption Key.
Note
If you do not know this information (Network Name (SSID/ESSID) and Password (Network Key)),
you cannot continue the wireless setup.
How can I find this information (Network Name (SSID/ESSID) and Password (Network Key))
1) You should see the documentation provided with your wireless access point/router.
2) The initial network name could be the manufacturer’s name or the model name.
3) If you do not know the security information, please consult the router manufacturer, your system
administrator, or internet provider.
