Frequently Asked Questions
Does this printer still print black and white, even if the color toner is not replaced?
Printer came with a pamphlet titled "User Settings on Color/Mono" that clearly describes how to print black only and what scenarios cause the printer to print using the color toner. It WILL print black if set to mono, even if a color toner is out.
Is this printer compatible with an Apple Time Capsule router?
It should be compatible. The Apple Time Capsule Router specs say you can connect a printer via USB or Ethernet. The Brother HL3170CDW printer has both of those options.
Does this printer work with card stock?
My husband and I recently purchased this printer. I used a very heavy bond card stock. At first I tried running it through the manual feed and it worked but not great since it is a 1 page manual feed. My husband suggested I try it in the regular paper tray and it worked great.
