Hi,
have you installed the drivers for the printer?
if the answer is no - please install the specific drivers for the printer.
if the answer is yes - which driver did u install?
if u haven't tried both the drivers (the one is the os X dvd and the brother printer driver) please try that.

if you still have problems with the printer-offline, try I have an IMAC--- version - moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngHP cups drivers, it works for most brother printers. this should solve your problem.
cheers

Printer says "printer is currently


The printer is connected to the rest of your computer with connecting hardware. If the connecting hardware such as connecting cords or connecting pins are damaged or not secure, then printer would be offline. Users facing the printer offline issue are recommended to check the connecting hardware and if the connecting hardware is found damaged, they would have to be repaired to solve the issues.

Keeps printing pages and pages of trash


Sounds like a large file was sent to the printer that was in a format, or, version unrecognized by the software. Go into the print queue and check to see if other files are waiting to be printed, cancel and delete them out. Next, try sending a one page doc of a current version of the software to the printer to see what happens. This is NOT a hardware problem, it's an incompatibility problem that CAN be fixed by simply using a more current version of the software.

Hope this helps. :)

My brother mfc-490cw I can't send or recieve faxes.


According to the User's Manual for the Brother MFC-490CW:
  • Poor Line Connection indicates an issue with your telephone line (Page 136). If you are sharing the fax line with any splitters or computers, try connecting the MFC-490CW directly to the phone jack and send a fax. If you are still getting a Poor Line Connection error message, call the telephone company and have a repair technician check your telephone line.

  • Out of Memory error message means the machine's memory is full (Page 138).

    Try pressing Stop/Exit and wait until all current operations finish and try again.

    Try clearing the data in memory. To gain extra memory space. turn off Memory Receive (See Page 48).

    Try printing the faxes that are in memory (See Page 49).

  • System Busy error message wasn't in the manual, but I suspect it means there's a current operation in progress and the machine needs time to finish before moving on to another job. Just wait for the current job to finish, then try again.
