Reprint Function

What is the benefit?

Your Brother printer is able to reprint documents that were sent to it in the past. Documents are held in the printer RAMDISK or in the optional HD-EX/ Compact Flash. There are four types of document that you can send to the printer and store in the HD-EX/Compact Flash memory:

Last Job Reprint
When this option is set (this is the default) anyone can reprint your print job by pressing the reprint key on the printer control panel.

Secure Print
The secure print option password protects your print job using a 4-digit PIN number that you specify. Any document sent from your computer using this option will only be printed when you go to the printer control panel and press the Secure Print button.

Public
A public document is a document that ANYONE can print.

Proof
A public document is a document that ANYONE can print.

How does it work?

From a Windows applications such as Microsoft Word, click the "File" menu, and then select the "Print" option. You will see a dialogue similar to the one below:

  1. Check the "Properties" button to display the printer driver setting.

  1. Click the "Advanced" Tab to display the following:

  2. Now select the appropriate option in the "Job Spooling" selection.

    In total there are four options:

    1. Last Job Reprint
    2. Secure Print
    3. Public
    4. Proof
driver_job_spooling

Last Job Reprint
When this option is set (this is the default) anyone can reprint your print job by pressing the reprint key on the printer control panel. However, if another using sends a print job, your print job will be deleted from the printer memory. If the printer is switched off, your print job will be lost. Installing the optional HD-EX or a Compact Flash memory card will not protect the last job printed.

Secure Print
The secure print option password protects your print job using a 4-digit PIN number that you specify. Any document sent from your computer using this option will only be printed when you go to the printer control panel and press the Secure Print button. The job will remain there until you do one of 3 things:

  1. Print the job by pressing the Secure Print button on the printer LCD and then follow the LCD prompts. After the job is printed, it is automatically deleted.
  2. Use a Web browser and connect to the printer and select the Spool Function from the printer homepage and then select the "Secure Files" option and follow the on-screen prompts. After the job is printed, it is automatically deleted.
  3. If you are using the RAMDISK feature of the printer, any print jobs will be lost if the printer has no power.

Public
A public document is a document that ANYONE can print. When you select the option, the printer will store the print job WITHOUT printing it and WITHOUT any password protection and it will remain there until one of 3 things happen:

  1. Someone deletes the job from the printer control panel
  2. Someone deletes the job using a web browser. From the printer homepage select the "Spool option"; then select "Public Files"; select the job you wish to delete and then click the "Delete the public file(s)" option.
  3. If the printer is not using the optional HD-EX or Compact Flash memory, all jobs will be lost if the printer has no power.

Proof
A public document is a document that ANYONE can print. When you select the option, the printer will store the print job AND print it, just as with "Public" printing, a password is not used for Proof Printing.

  1. Someone deletes the job from the printer control panel
  2. Someone deletes the job using a web browser. From the printer homepage select the "Spool option"; then select "Public Files"; select the job you wish to delete and then click the "Delete the public file(s)" option.
  3. If the printer is not using the optional HD-EX or Compact Flash memory, all jobs will be lost if the printer has no power
