SOURCE: Brother MFC-6490CW printer error unable to print

Hello there
I think this is down to a bit of paper sticking some where, it worth a try anyway.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you.
Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Hold down the menu key. While still holding the menu key, unplug the machine and plug it back in. Do not let go of the key until the machine reboots and the screen says "maintenence". Hit the following keys: 7, 6, 4,black start. The machine will then go into "power purge" or deep clean mode for about 5-7 minutes. When complete hit: 99 to get out of maintanence and reboot. Be sure to have extra ink cartidges on hand as it does use up a lot of ink but this process works the best every time when the printer wont print.

SOURCE: Brother MCF-6490CW will not intall drivers with Windows 7 Ultimat

The drivers should come inboxed with windows 7 on the official final versions. Later on the drivers also will be released on brother's homepage(s), but they usually take some time before uploading drivers to the homepage when new OS' are released. Try using the Add Printer Wizard and see if you're able to find the MFC-6490CW in the list of printers available.

SOURCE: Brother MFC-6490CW is not printing black

If it's under warranty you're in luck, you need a new printhead,LK3197001, around $80.00. I just replaced one yesterday in the shop for the same problem. I would call Brother customer service and see if they'll help cover the cost.

SOURCE: I have a Brother MFC 6490cw and can't Get The

if you have done a couple cleanings and it has not helped, its one of 2 things, either your ink cartridge is empty and needs to be replaced, or the nozzles are clogged on the printhead, also air can be in the turbing causing it not to let the liquid flow.

thanks adi
