This one is weird. I have a Brother MFC 490cw printer.

A paper jam took place and we got the paper out but now the printer says ''Door is open, Close ink Cover''. The ink cover is CLOSED. I have closed it a million times, unplugged the printer etc., but because of this issue, it won't print. HELP. The printer is barely 6 months old!

When you cleared the JAM you broke, moved, displaced or bent the sensor that knows if the door is open, look for a sensor with two wires where the door makes contact - it could be almost any style but is usually something that slips into something and makes a contact closure or microswitch to close or open.

Brother MFC-490cw shows Unable to print 4F what is 4F?


Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.
This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message.

Try restarting your printer, it might not recognize that the printer is no longer jammed till it is restarted.

Problem paper jam printer brother no mfc-490cw


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

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.

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.

Make sure the top cover is closed as well, Brother has a one year warranty, so it can be repaired at no charge
