Can I change the amount of time my Brother machine stays in each mode?

Your Brother machine has four temporary Mode keys on its control panel: Fax, Copy, Scan, and Photo Capture. By default, the Brother machine will return to Fax Mode two minutes after the last Scan, Copy, or Photo Capture operation. You can change the amount of time your Brother machine takes after the last Copy, Scan, or Photo Capture operation before it returns to Fax Mode. If you choose Off, the machine stays in the mode you used last.

  1. Press Menu.
  2. Press the Up or Down Arrow key to choose General Setup. Press OK.
  3. Press the Up or Down Arrow key to choose Mode Timer. Press OK.
  4. Press the Up or Down arrow key to choose 0Sec, 30Secs, 1Min, 2Mins, 5Mins or Off. Press OK.

If you select Off, then your Brother machine stays in the mode you used last.

  1. Press Stop/Exit.
