How do I make copies using my Brother machine?

Listed below are instructions for making a single copy and multiple copies:


Paper size and type setting:

To get the best print quality, set the machine for the type of paper you are using.

When you change the size of the paper you load into your Brother machine, you must also change the paper size setting.

Paper should be loaded in the paper trays in portrait orientation. Do NOT load paper in the paper trays in landscape orientation.

Regardless of the paper size you are using, you must always load the paper into the paper tray so that the two longer edges of the paper face the left and right sides of the paper tray and the two shorter edges of the paper face the front and back of the paper tray.

 

Making a single copy:

  1. - For MFC users : Press Copy.

    - For DCP users : Go to STEP 2.
