Question about Brother MFC 490cw Color Inkjet Multi-Function Printer
Did it quit & I need a new one?
1. Unplug the power code then plug it in again. Do this where it plugs into the wall and also do it where the cord plugs into the printer.
2. If the printer is plugged into a power strip, switch to off then to On.
3. If nothing else is plugged into the same wall outlet or power strip, plug in a lamp, for example, to see if it works. If not, the circuit breaker for the wall outlet probably needs to be reset. Circuit breakers are in the main electrical panel/box for your house. There should be one that is moved to the left. Push all the way to left and then push to right firmly until it makes a loud CLICK.

I found out what the problem was with my machines. It is the gear at the end of the fuser roller. I was able to buy the part at Agson.com and I repaired 3 machines myself. It was quite complicated, but after I did the first one, the other two took only minutes.

The solution, and it took me a long time to find the simple solution, is to right click on your printer, click properties, click the ports tab and click on your Brother printer and click on configure port (or you can delete the existing one and then add another one). What you want to do is update the IP Address. The problem is that the printer does not have a static IP address, it is dynamic. If you want to confirm that, go to your printer and press the reports button and print out the network configuration report. Your IP address will show on that. It's really the last digit in the IP address that changes. This will absolutely solve your problem. Good Luck!
