Hi,

Was it working and then stopped? Do you have the latest software drivers installed?

Try the easy things first:

Be sure that all the ink cartridges have ink in them.

Make sure the cartridges are all installed and seated properly. How old are the cartridges?

Try turning the machine completely off for about two minutes and then turning it back on, then try again. Try printing something using a different computer program. Re-boot your computer.

Make sure there are no paper jams.

When was the last time the print heads were cleaned?

Here is a link to the Brother support page for this MFC unit:

My mfc 6490cw sends blank faxes


Normally this is caused by not loading the item being faxed in the ADF (Auto Document Feeder) correctly. Try sending a Fax of only one page by putting the page Face down on the Scanner plate (Lift the top of the printer to access the scanner plate). if this works then check the ADF scanner plate is not obscured.

I have recently installed a Brother MFC-6490CW printer on an iMac with OS X 10.6.6. When attempting to print, I have a choice of two printers: 1) Brother MFC-6490CW (default) or 2) just MFC-6490CW. When...


You have 2 printers because it was inadvertently installed twice. You need to un-install both of them and reinstall the printer again.

Trouble printing


It'll be better for you to use the built-in A3 paper size, otherwise you'll not be able to print it perfectly. I you would like to do it, You can try this, after setting the documents and the documents size, give the print command, and under the printer properties, select the paper size, you'll see an option (custom) from the drop down list, select it an set the size, but you must leave a space for the printer to hold the paper. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

MCF 6490CW SCAN AS A PDF


I was trying to figure out how to scan multi-page documents to a single file and found this on the Brother website:

Double-click on the ControlCenter3 icon located in the Task Tray to launch the program window.

Click on CONFIGURATION -> SCAN.

Choose the type of scan you require. The choices are: IMAGE,
E-MAIL, and FILE.

The Scan to configuration window will appear.

The SOFTWARE BUTTON tab configures the Scan to button within theControlCenter3 software interface. The DEVICE BUTTON tab configures the Scan to key on the Brother machine. Choose the tab you want to configure.

Under FILE TYPE select an option that allows multi-page documents:

a) PDF (*.PDF)
b) Tiff Multi-Page # Uncompressed (*.tif)
c) Tiff Multi-Page # Compressed (*.tif)

Click OK.
