Question about Brother MFC 490cw Color Inkjet Multi-Function Printer

1 Answer

Can anyone tell me why my Brother MFC-J630w wont turn on. I was using it earlier. When I unplug it & plug it back in, the light doesn't come on. It just makes a ringing sound.

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.

SOURCE: "brother mfc 7840w printer goes offline and i cannot print need turn printer on and off.

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!

I have a Brother all-in-one printer MFC 420CN and it displays unable to clean...see troubleshooting and routine maintenance in user's guide. Itried turning off and back on but it does not reset...


Try this and see if it works... It works for my Brother MFC-6490CW and I am sure the same process probably will apply to your machine. If it doesn't contact customer service and let them know you need to know how to Power Purge your machine. Good Luck!

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

Problems with Brother MFC-7820N Laser Printer turns itself off


I just had same issue, it shared an outlet with a large volume work group copier, I unplugged it, opened and closed all compartments to make sure something open was not causing issues. I plugged it into different outlet and it appears to be back online. I have read some postings that this model has been known to draw over 15 amps. Its possible its starving for power. To test take to another room, plug in outlet by itself and see if it boots up.
