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.

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.

Testimonial: "Thanks, 'komguy' :) !! That's helpful. I'll get hold of them ASAP! Cheers!"
SOURCE: clean brother encoder strip
The encoder strip is barely visible thru the top in front of the printhead, if you can see it without taking all apart, you use a Q-tip just damp with water and wipe each side as far as you can reach.

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.

1. After the error message is displayed on the LCD or display, open the scanner cover, so the print head is visible.
2. Press and hold the Stop/Exit key for 5 seconds. The print head will move to the middle.
3. Unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
4. Use a clean lint free cloth dampend with a bit of alchohol and clean both sides of the encoder strip thoroughly. Move the print head from side to side to allow access for cleaning of the entire encoder strip.
