If the manufacture date in the “LOT #” on the product is “A”, “B”, or “C” please call Brother Mobile Solutions Customer Service at 1-800-543-6144. The instructions for locating the manufacture date are:

1)    Find the label on the box. It should say “Genuine Brother Supplies”. The lower right corner will contain a “LOT #”. Example” “LOT #:689BM10

2)    If the 5 character from the left, the second alpha character, is “A”, “B”, or “C” you have potentially defective paper.

3)    Recommendations:


·         For the suspect product that has been shipped to you between the dates cited above, Brother Mobile is initiating a proactive, full exchange of the suspect product with replacement product that meets our quality standards. We expect to be able to fulfill these exchanges starting with a Monday, April 25, 2011, arrival date.

·         We further recommend you responsibly dispose of or recycle any suspect product locally.

·         In the meantime, we are recommending that you DO NOT USE any of these suspect products.

·         For a limited number of more urgent situations, we have established a “hotline” process where you can call Brother Mobile’s toll-free number and request an expedited exchange of the suspect product that we will fulfill at no cost. 

·         Finally, there may be some segment of our customer base for whom their business process relies on the ability to store / archive a thermal image for a longer period of time (up to 7 years). For those customers with a longer-term storage need, we strongly recommend creating a duplicate image.


If your paper products do not fall into the above criteria, then:


Follow the suggestions in “Light Patches of print appear on the Image. How can I correct this?” .  If the problem persists the thermal print head may have been jarred out of its mounts. Please contact Technical Support.

The machine has a one year limited depot warranty. If the machine requires service, call Brother Mobile Solutions Customer Service at 1-800-543-6144 Monday through Friday, excluding holidays for a Return Authorization number.
