required to deliver (by hand if you prefer) or
send the Product properly packaged, freight

together with a photocopy of your bill of sale.
You are responsible for the cost of

(if you desire). You are also responsible
for loss or damage to this Product in
shipping.
What Brother will do:
If the problem reported concerning your
Machine and/or accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items is covered by this
warranty and if you first reported the problem
to Brother or an Authorized Service Center
within the applicable warranty period, Brother
or its Authorized Service Center will repair or
replace the Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items at no
charge to you for parts or labor. The decision
as to whether to repair or replace the Machine
and/or accompanying Consumable and
Accessory Items is made by Brother in its
sole discretion.
Brother® One Year Limited Warranty and Replacement Service
(USA only)
Brother reserves the right to supply a
refurbished or remanufactured replacement
Machine and/or accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items and use refurbished
parts provided such replacement products
conform to the manufacturer's specifications
for new product/parts. The repaired or
replacement Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items will be
returned to you freight prepaid or made
available for you to pick up at a conveniently
located Authorized Service Center.
If the Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Items are not
covered by this warranty (either stage), you
will be charged for shipping the Machine
and/or accompanying Consumable and
Accessory Items back to you and charged for
any
service
and/or
replacement
parts/products at Brother's then current
published rates.
The foregoing are your sole (i.e., only) and
exclusive remedies under this warranty.
What happens when Brother elects to
replace your Machine:
When a replacement Machine is authorized by
Brother, and you have delivered the Machine
to an Authorized Service Center, the
Authorized Service Center will provide you
with a replacement Machine after receiving
one from Brother. If you are dealing directly
with Brother, Brother will send to you a
replacement Machine with the understanding
that you will, after receipt of the replacement
Machine, supply the required proof of
purchase information, together with the
Machine that Brother agreed to replace. You
are then expected to pack the Machine that
Brother agreed to replace in the package from
the replacement Machine and return it to
Brother using the pre-paid freight bill supplied
by Brother in accordance with the instructions
provided by Brother. Since you will be in
possession of two machines, Brother will
require that you provide a valid major credit
card number. Brother will issue a hold against
the credit card account number that you
provide until Brother receives your original
Product and determines that your original
Product is entitled to warranty coverage. Your
credit card will be charged up to the cost of a
new Product only if: (i) you do not return your
original Product to Brother within five (5)
business days; (ii) the problems with your
original Product are not covered by the limited
warranty; (iii) the proper packaging
instructions are not followed and has caused
damage to the product; or (iv) the warranty
period on your original Product has expired or
has not been sufficiently validated with a copy
of the proof of purchase (bill of sale). The
replacement Machine you receive (even if
refurbished or remanufactured) will be
covered by the balance of the limited warranty
period remaining on the original Product, plus
an additional thirty (30) days. You will keep the
replacement Machine that is sent to you and
your original Machine shall become the
property of Brother. Retain your original
Accessory Items and a copy of the return
freight bill, signed by the courier.
Limitations:
Brother is not responsible for damage to or
loss of any equipment, media, programs or
data related to the use of this Product. Except
for that repair or replacement as described
above, Brother shall not be liable for any
direct, indirect, incidental or consequential
damages or specific relief. Because some
states do not allow the exclusion or limitation
of consequential or incidental damages, the
above limitation may not apply to you.
THIS WARRANTY IS GIVEN IN LIEU OF
ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WRITTEN OR
ORAL, WHETHER EXPRESSED BY
AFFIRMATION, PROMISE, DESCRIPTION,
DRAWING, MODEL OR SAMPLE. ANY AND
ALL WARRANTIES OTHER THAN THIS
ONE, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE HEREBY
DISCLAIMED.
• This Limited Warranty is the only warranty
that Brother is giving for this Product. It is the
final expression and the exclusive and only
statement of Brother's obligations to you. It
replaces all other agreements and
understandings that you may have with
Brother or its representatives.
• This warranty gives you certain rights and
you may also have other rights that may
vary from state to state.
• This Limited Warranty (and Brother's
obligation to you) may not be changed in
any way unless you and Brother sign the
same piece of paper in which we (1) refer to
this Product and your bill of sale date, (2)
describe the change to this warranty and (3)
agree to make that change.
Important: We recommend that you keep all
original packing materials, in the event that
you ship this Product.

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 Technical Support or for the name and location of your nearest
Authorized Service Center call 1-877-BROTHER.

Paper Handling Difficulties
The DCP does not load paper. The
LCD shows No Paper Fed or
Paper Jam.
If there is no paper, load a new stack of paper into the paper tray. If there is paper
in the paper tray, make sure it is straight. If the paper is curled, you should
straighten it. Sometimes it is helpful to remove the paper, turn the stack over and
put it back into the paper tray. Reduce the amount of paper in the paper tray, and
then try again. Check that the manual feed mode is not selected in the printer
driver. If the LCD shows Paper Jam and you still have a problem, see Paper jams
on page 6-4.
The DCP does not feed paper from
the manual feed slot.
Reinsert the paper firmly, load one sheet at a time. Make sure that manual feed
mode is selected in the printer driver.
How can I load envelopes?
You can load envelopes from the manual feed slot. Your application software must
be set up to print the envelope size you are using. This is usually done in the Page
Setup or Document Setup menu of your software. Please refer to the manual
provided with your software application.
What paper can I use?
You can use plain paper, recycled paper, envelopes, transparencies and labels
that are made for laser machines. (For information on paper you can use, see
About paper on page 1-8.)
How can I clear paper jams?
See Paper jams on page 6-4.
Print Quality Difficulties
Printed pages are curled.
Low quality thin or thick paper can cause this problem. Make sure you select the
Paper Type that suits the media type you use. (See About paper on page 1-8.)
Printed pages are smeared.
The Paper Type setting may be incorrect for the type of print media you are
using—OR—The print media may be too thick or have a rough surface.
(See About paper on page 1-8 and Basic tab in the Software User’s Guide on the
CD-ROM.)
Printouts are too light.
If your DCP is not connected to a computer, turn off Toner Save mode in the DCP
itself. (See Toner Save on page 2-2.)

Troubleshooting and routine maintenance
Cleaning the corona wire
We recommend placing the drum unit and
toner cartridge assembly on a cloth or large
disposable paper to avoid spilling and
scattering toner.
1
Open the front cover and pull out the
drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
Replacing the toner cartridge
(TN-350)
The toner cartridge can print up to 2,500
pages. When the toner cartridge is running
low, the LCD shows Toner Low. Actual page
count will vary depending on your average
type of document (i.e., standard letter,
detailed graphics).
Note
It is a good idea to keep a new toner cartridge
ready for use when you see the Toner Low
warning.
2
Clean the primary corona wire inside the
drum unit by gently sliding the blue tab
from right to left several times.
Discard the used toner cartridge according to
local regulations, keeping it separate from
domestic waste. Be sure to seal the toner
cartridge tightly so toner powder does not
spill out of the cartridge. If you have
questions, call your local waste disposal
office.
We recommend that you clean the DCP and
drum unit when you replace the toner
cartridge. (See Cleaning the laser scanner
window on page 6-17 and Cleaning the
corona wire on page 6-19.)
3
Return the blue tab and snap it into the
Home position (▼).
CAUTION
If you do not return the blue tab to the
Home position (▼), your printed pages
may have vertical black stripes on them.

cartridge assembly in the DCP.

How to replace the toner
cartridge
2
Hold down the lock lever on the left and
pull the toner cartridge out of the drum
unit.
WARNING
Just after you use the DCP, some internal
parts of the machine will be extremely
HOT! Never touch the shaded parts
shown in the illustration.
CAUTION
1
Open the front cover and pull out the
drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
■ Place the drum unit on a drop cloth or
large piece of disposable paper to
avoid spilling and scattering the toner.
■ Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If
toner scatters on your hands or
clothes, immediately wipe it off or wash
it with cold water.
3
CAUTION
To prevent damage to the DCP from static
electricity, do not touch the electrodes
shown below.
6 - 20
Unpack the new toner cartridge. Place
the used toner cartridge into the
aluminum bag and discard it according
to local regulations.
Troubleshooting and routine maintenance
CAUTION
■ Brother strongly recommends that you
do not refill the toner cartridge provided
with your DCP. We also strongly
recommend that you continue to use
only Genuine Brother Brand
replacement toner cartridges (TN-350).
Using or attempting to use potentially
incompatible toner and/or toner
cartridges in your DCP may cause
damage to the machine itself and/or it
may result in unsatisfactory print
quality. Our warranty coverage does
not apply to any problem that was
caused by the use of unauthorized
third party toner and toner cartridges.
To protect your investment and
guarantee your print quality please
continue to replace consumed toner
cartridges with only Genuine Brother
Branded Supplies.
CAUTION
Do not touch the shaded parts shown in
the illustrations to prevent any degradation
to the print quality.
6
4
Gently rock the toner cartridge from side
to side five or six times to distribute the
toner evenly inside the cartridge.
5
Remove the protective cover.
■ Wait to unpack the toner cartridge until
immediately before you install it in the
DCP. If a toner cartridge is left
unpacked for a long period of time, the
toner life is shortened.

7
Insert the new toner cartridge in the
drum unit until it clicks into place. If you
put it in properly, the lock lever will lift
automatically.
Clean the primary corona wire inside the
drum unit by gently sliding the blue tab
from right to left several times. Return
the blue tab to the Home position (▼)
before reinstalling the drum unit and
toner cartridge assembly.
Replacing the drum unit
(DR-350)
The DCP uses a drum unit to create print
images on paper. If the LCD shows
Change Drum Soon, the drum unit is near
the end of its life and it is time to buy a new
one.
Even if the LCD shows Change Drum Soon ,
you may be able to continue printing without
having to replace the drum unit for a while.
However, if there is a noticeable deterioration
in the output print quality (even before
Change Drum Soon appears), then the
drum unit should be replaced. You should
clean the DCP when you replace the drum
unit. (See Cleaning the laser scanner window
on page 6-17.)
CAUTION
When removing the drum unit, handle it
carefully because it contains toner. If toner
scatters and your hands or clothes get
dirty, immediately wipe or wash it off with
cold water.
8
Install the drum unit and toner cartridge
assembly into the DCP.
9
Close the front cover.
6 - 22
Note
The drum unit is a consumable item, 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 how much toner you use for the
number of pages per print job. The estimated
drum life is up to 12,000 pages. The actual
number of pages your drum will print may be
significantly less than these estimates.
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.
