My-oh-my...! I searched everywhere on the Brother Page to find thelocation of the USB port for you model, but there is NOTHING! Neitherin the Manual nor Setup Guide. Unbelievable!

I looked up the 1860-C and that Setup Guide at least has apicture.Look at page 11 (chapter 14) of the Setup Guide (you can get ithere).
It shows the connection port for USB. Maybe that gives you a hint.

If you want to search the outside of your fax machine, look for a USB symbol like this:

The port itself might be covered by a small plate and not visible without prying that plate (carefully) off.

Note: Brother advises not to use a USB cable longer than 6 feet.

Hope this gets you a little further!

It;s pretty well hidden on the 1840C. If you open the top cover (to expose the cartridges) and look to the left of the black cartridge you'll see the usb port. There's a route for the usb cable to run to the back of the printer down the right side.

'unable to clean'

Remove the toner cartridge, slide the corona wire tab back and forth several times to clean the wire, then clean the drum. This should fix your problem. Below is a link to your User Guide. Best of luck.
