Where is the opening to put the ink cartridges into the MFC-490CW I lost my instructions and this is the first time I have tried to change them and I cannot find where they go.


The ink goes in the compartment in the front right corner.

Refer to this link: Quick Start Guide.

Scroll to step 4 for step by step instructions.

Make sure you install the correct color ink cartridge in its appropriate slot.

(Note: The green insert will not be in the printer. It was removed when the printer was first set up.)

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I refill my ink cartridges?

If you bought an ink refill kit, then there should be a bellows with a fine needle tip filled with ink and a rubber stopper. There should have been instructions included with the kit.
If you only bought the bellows and there's no instructions or rubber stopper, then I'm afraid you are missing some pieces. You need more than just the ink to refill the cartridges correctly, or else they will leak all over the inside of the printer.

Error message "no cartridge" won't go away on my brother mfc 420cn printer

Sorry i couldn't help on the day you nedded it. Do not be afraid to refill, it's easy once you have a go, all instructions come with the refill kits, and they instuct on your specific printer too. Follow it to the T and you can refil one colour or all, and no waste. Once refilled, replace it, reset ink levels, and try printing again. Good luck.
