Brother®
Three-Year Limited Warranty and Replacement Service
(USA Only)
What Brother will do:
First 2 Years: If the problem reported
concerning your Machine and/or
accompanying Consumable and Accessory
Item(s) is covered by this warranty and if (i)
you first reported the problem with your
Machine to Brother or an Authorized Service
Center within 2 years from the original
purchase date or (ii) you first reported the
problem with the accompanying Consumable
and Accessory Items to Brother or an
Authorized Service Center within the earlier
of 90 days from the original purchase date or
the rated life of the item, Brother or its
Authorized Service Center will repair or
replace the Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Item(s) 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 Item(s) is made by Brother in its
sole discretion. Brother reserves the right to
supply a refurbished or remanufactured
replacement Machine and/or accompanying
Consumable and Accessory Item(s) 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
Item(s) will be returned to you freight prepaid
or made available for you to pick up at a
conveniently located Authorized Service
Center.
2 Years to 3 Years:
If the problem reported concerning your
Machine is covered by this warranty and if
you first reported the problem after 2 years,
but before 3 years from the original purchase
date, Brother or its Authorized Service Center
will repair the Machine at no charge to you for
parts or labor. Brother reserves the right to
use refurbished parts provided such
refurbished parts conform to the
manufacturer’s specifications for new
product/parts. The repaired Machine 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 Item(s) are not
covered by this warranty (either stage), you
will be charged for shipping the Machine
and/or accompanying Consumable and
Accessory Item(s) back to you.
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’s Express Exchange Service
Brother will send to you a replacement
Machine shipped for receipt within two
business days, 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 shipping 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
of your original Product are not covered by
the 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 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
shipping bill, signed by the courier.

BROTHER MULTIFUNCTION CENTER / FAX MACHINE
LIMITED WARRANTY
(Canada only)
Pursuant to the limited warranty of 1 year from the date of purchase for labour and parts,
Brother International Corporation (Canada) Ltd. (“Brother”), or its Authorized Service
Centres, will repair or replace (at Brother’s sole discretion) this MFC/Fax machine free of
charge if defective in material or workmanship. This warranty applies only to products
purchased and used in Canada.
This limited Warranty does not include cleaning, consumables (including, without limitation, ink
cartridges, print cartridges, print rolls, thermal paper rolls, toner cartridges, drum units, OPC
belts, fixing units, print heads, paper feed rollers, transfer rolls, cleaning rollers, waste toner
packs, oil bottles) 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 if shipped out of the country.
The use of supplies or consumable items that are non-Brother products may void your
warranty. This limited warranty ceases when this machine is rented, sold, or otherwise
disposed of. Operation of the MFC/Fax 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/Fax machine must be delivered or shipped
freight prepaid by the end-user/purchaser to a “Brother” Authorized Service Centre, together
with your Canadian Proof of Purchase in the form of a Sales Receipt.
When shipping or transporting your MFC/Fax machine, please refer to your Operation
Manual for the proper packaging procedures.
For Laser units: Failure to remove the Toner Cartridge (and Toner Drum Unit, waste toner
packs or oil bottles on applicable models) during shipping or transport will cause severe
damage to the Laser MFC/Fax machine and will void the Warranty.
For inkjet units: (When shipping your Inkjet MFC/Fax machine remove the ink cartridges and
replace them with the original protective parts. If original protective parts are not available,
leave ink cartridges installed. Please avoid shipping the unit without original protective parts
or ink cartridges.) Damage to your print head resulting from packing the Inkjet MFC/Fax
machine without the ink cartridges or the protective parts will void your warranty.
Improper packaging may cause severe damage to the machine during shipping and will void
the warranty.
BROTHER DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED INCLUDING,
WITHOUT LIMITATIONS, 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 Centres, Distributors, Dealers, Agents or employees, shall create another warranty
or modify this warranty. The warranty states Brother’s entire liability and your exclusive
remedy against Brother for any failure of the MFC/Fax machine to operate properly.
Neither Brother nor anyone else involved in the development, production, or delivery of this
MFC/Fax 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 Province to Province.
Warranty Service is available at Brother Authorized
Service Centres throughout Canada. For Technical
Assistance or for the name and location of your nearest
Authorized Service Centre call 1-877-BROTHER.

Handling and using special
paper 2
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.
Store paper in its original packaging and keep
it sealed. Keep the paper flat and away from
moisture, direct sunlight and heat.
Some important guidelines when selecting
paper are:
„ Do not use inkjet paper because it may
cause a paper jam or damage your
machine.
„ Preprinted paper must use ink that can
withstand the temperature of the
machine's fusing process (200 degrees
centigrade).
„ If you use bond paper, paper having a
rough surface or paper that is wrinkled or
creased, the paper may exhibit degraded
performance.
Types of paper to avoid 2
IMPORTANT
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
1 0.08 in. (2mm)
• 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 or 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.

Envelopes 2
Most envelopes will be suitable for your
machine. However, some envelopes may
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 sheets 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.
Envelopes can only be fed from the MP tray.
Do not print envelopes using duplex printing.
We recommend that you print a test envelope
to make sure the print results are what you
want before you print or purchase a large
quantity of envelopes.
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 below.
1 Feeding direction
„ Envelope joints that are sealed by the
manufacturer should be secure.
„ We recommend that you do not print
within 0.6 in. (15 mm) of the edges of
envelopes.
Types of envelopes to avoid 2
IMPORTANT
DO NOT use envelopes:
• that are damaged, curled, wrinkled or
an unusual shape
• that are extremely shiny or textured
• with clasps, staples, 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 glue on surface as shown in figure
below
• with double flaps as shown in figure
below

2
• with sealing flaps that have not been
folded at purchase
• with sealing flaps as shown in figure
below
• with each side folded as shown in
figure below
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.
Occasionally you may experience paper
feed problems caused by the thickness,
size and flap shape of the envelopes you
are using.
Labels 2
The machine will print on most types of labels
designed for use with a laser machine. Labels
should have an adhesive that is acrylic-based
since this material is more stable at the high
temperatures in the fuser unit. Adhesives
should not come in contact with any part of
the machine, because the label stock may
stick to the drum unit 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 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.
Label sheets should not exceed the paper
weight specifications described in this User’s
Guide. Labels exceeding this specification
may not feed or print properly and may cause
damage to your machine.
Labels can be fed from the MP Tray only.
Types of labels to avoid 2
Do not use labels that are damaged, curled,
wrinkled or an unusual shape.
IMPORTANT
Avoid feeding labels with the carrier sheet
exposed because your machine will be
damaged.
