Questions & Answers

Customer Questions & Answers

Can't find the answer you're looking for? Our printer experts are here to help! Ask a Question
  • When you say it has an A4 footprint do you mean the scanner bed is A4? But to confirm, the printer will print A3 size? and it has an A4 and A3 paper tray?

    An A4 footprint means that the Brother MFC-J5730DW is able to print onto A3 media, but the model is still as small as an A4 machine. This model features both an ADF which can scan up to A4, and a Flatbed Scanner which is capable of scanning media up to A3. It includes two 250 Sheet trays and a 100 Sheet Mutlipurpose tray, all of which can handle media up to A3 in size.

  • Answer to previous question said max. paper weight was 80gsm. Surely spec. says 256?

    Hi, the maximum paper weight the Brother MFC-J5730DW can take is 260gsm.

  • Will this connect to my desktop with ethernet cable and what is max paper weight

    The Brother MFC-J5730DW does have a Network interface so an Ethernet cable will work. The maximum paper weight is 80gsm

  • Brother MFCJ5730DW Can I copy at A3 size, if not do you have an inkjet printer that can copy and print at A3

    This model will not copy in A3. It has an A4 footprint but will print on A3 paper. The Epson WF-7610DWF should be a suitable alternative that will print, copy and scan in A3

    On 16/05/2017 13:09:31
  • Does this machine scan a3?

    Unfortunately the J5730DW will only scan up to the following maximum sizes.
    Width: Up to 213.9 mm
    Length: Up to 353.6 mm

  • Charles W 08 August 2018 3.5 / 5 Value 4 Features 5 Quality 1 Performance 4 Great Service .. Weak Instructions

    WARNING: I had one problem on set up which doesn't seem to worry Brother. I used the Brother high capacity cartridges [purchased alongside the printer] when i set it up. The printer failed to install correctly, with no explanation. it turns out that initially you MUST ONLY use the cartridges that come free in the printer box. Although not labelled as such, they are geared to assist with the set up and calibration. I wasted hours on this. Brother didn't care, and defended their flaky set up instructions. In contrast, Printerland, who had delivered fast and efficiently, took the matter seriously, and resolved it patiently and generously. Outstanding customer service. The printer seems to be

  • Stephen Huntington 09 September 2017 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Excellent all-rounder

    I bought the Brother MFC J5730DW to replace my 5890cn that is still working after 7 fault free years. Wireless and unit setup was easy. The 2 paper trays and additional rear feed mean that I can load 3 paper types or sizes at the same time. Duplex printing, scanning and copying are pretty quick and very good quality. If you don't need to scan A3, this printer will do it all, including fax. It's not the smallest of units, but thoughtful aesthetic design makes up for that.

What is AirPrint?

Apple AirPrint allows full colour, top-quality printing from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads directly from within many Apps available from the Apple App Store.

To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer.

AirPrint enables users to print wirelessly from within applications on Apple devices to AirPrint Compatible Printers connected to a wireless network. You can use your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to easily print via Airprint without the need to install drivers or configure the printer queue. Just tap 'print' and select your AirPrint compatible printer, and print!....It's that simple.

What You See is What You Print

If you can open it on your apple device, chances are you can print it with AirPrint and an AirPrint compatible printer. Airprint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDF's in iBooks and many third-party AirPrint compatible apps available from the app store.

Full list of AirPrint compatible printers

Third-Party Apps

There are also a wide variety of third-party apps available to enable wireless printing through Apple devices, even to machines that are not natively AirPrint compatible printers. By sharing a printer installed on an Apple Mac or Windows Pc over a wireless network any printer may be able to take advantage of the AirPrint features. (An additional third-party app may be required to be installed on the local machine)

*For full AirPrint support, a printer firmware upgrade may be required which is available directly from the relevant manufacturer website.
