Before You Begin
Before you begin sending faxes, please be sure to read all the instructions and
cautions listed below for placing originals in the automatic document feeder.
Using the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder)
Documents must be between 5.8 and 8.5 inches wide between 3.9 and 14.1

of how wide the paper is.

The ADF (automatic
document feeder) can hold up to 30 Pages, feeding each one individually
through the machine. If you “Stagger” the pages, the ADF can hold up to 50
pages. Use standard (17 lb–24 lb) paper when using the ADF. If you’re using
heavier paper, feed each sheet individually to prevent paper jams.
Make sure documents written in ink are completely dry.
Before you send a fax press Resolution to select the resolution for the
document you’re sending. (See Fax Resolution, Page 6-5.)
DO NOT use curled, wrinkled, folded or ripped paper, or paper with staples,
paper clips, paste or tape attached. DO NOT use cardboard, newspaper or fabric.
If you send faxes from a computer on the same phone line and your Brother
machine intercepts them, set Easy Receive to OFF.
