„ This limited warranty (“warranty”) is given
only to the original end-use/retail purchaser
(referred to in this warranty as “Original
Purchaser”) of the accompanying product,
consumables and accessories (collectively
referred to in this warranty as “this
Product”).
„ If you purchased a product from someone
other than an authorized Brother reseller in
the United States or if the product was used
(including but not limited to floor models or
refurbished product), prior to your
purchase you are not the Original
Purchaser and the product that you
purchased is not covered by this warranty.
What is covered:
„ This Product includes a battery,
„ Except as otherwise provided herein,
Brother warrants that the Product and
battery will be free from defects in materials
and workmanship, when used under
normal conditions.
„ This warranty applies only to products
purchased and used in the United States.
For products purchased in, but used
outside, the United States, this warranty
covers only warranty service within the
United States (and does not include
shipping outside the United States).
What is the length of the Warranty Periods:
„ Product: one year from the original
purchase date.
„ Battery: 90 days from the original purchase
date or the rated life, whichever comes first.
What is NOT covered:
This warranty does not cover:
1 Physical damage or normal wear and tear
to this Product;
2 Damage caused by improper installation,
improper or abnormal use, misuse, neglect
or accident (including but not limited to
transporting this Product without the proper
preparation and/or packaging);
3 Damage caused by another device, power
surges or lightening;
4 Conditions beyond the control of Brother,
such as common carrier provided services,
and
5 Problems arising from other than defects in
materials or workmanship.
This limited warranty is VOID if this Product
has been altered or modified in any way
(including but not limited to attempted warranty
repair without authorization from Brother
and/or alteration/removal of the serial
number).
What to do if you think your Product is
eligible for warranty service:
Report your issue to our Customer Service
Hotline at 1-800-284-4329 Supply Brother
with a copy of your dated bill of sale showing
that this Product was purchased within the U.S
What Brother will ask you to do:
After contacting Brother you may be required
to deliver (by hand if you prefer) or send the
Product properly packaged, freight prepaid, to
the Brother Service Center together with a
photocopy of your bill of sale. You are
responsible for the cost of shipping,
packing product, and insurance (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
Product is covered by this warranty and if you
first reported the problem to Brother within the
applicable warranty period, Brother will repair
or replace the Product at no charge to you for
parts or labor. The decision as to whether to
repair or replace the Product is made by
Brother in its sole discretion. Brother reserves
the right to supply a refurbished or
remanufactured replacement Product and use
refurbished parts provided such replacement
products conform to the manufacturer’s
specifications for new product/parts. The
repaired or replacement Product will be
returned to you freight prepaid or made
available for you to pick up at the Brother
Service Center.
Page: 5
iv
If the Product is not covered by this warranty
(either stage), you will be charged for shipping
the Product 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 Product:
When a replacement Product is authorized by
Brother, and you have delivered the Product to
the Brother Service Center, the Brother
Service Center will provide you with a
replacement Product or Brother will send to
you a replacement Product with the
understanding that you will, after receipt of the
replacement Product, supply the required
proof of purchase information, together with
the Product that Brother agreed to replace.
You are then expected to pack the Product
that Brother agreed to replace in the package
from the replacement Product 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 Products, 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 determine 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 Product 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 Product that is sent to you and
your original Product 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.

you. It replaces all other agreements and
understandings that you may have with

you may also have other rights that may
vary from state to state.

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.

comply with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This
device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,

„ The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are associated with
using low power wireless devices. There is no proof, however, that these low power wireless
devices are absolutely safe. Low power Wireless devices emit low levels of radio frequency
energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce
health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low-level RF that does not produce heating
effects causes no known adverse health effects. Many studies of low-level RF exposures have
not found any biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological effects
might occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by additional research. This equipment
has been tested and found to comply with FCC radiation exposure limits set forth for an
uncontrolled equipment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines in
Supplement C to OET65.
