Question about Brother MFC 6490CW InkJet Printer

2 Answers

I have a Brother MFC-6490CW and I want to scan paper that is 11x17 and the manual says that i have to set my glass size. However, they say to push the Scan button and then the Scan to Media button...that button isn't there. What do I do, my scans are coming in in Letter format and I've tried everything possible as far as settings on the computer side of things.

You will need to open the control center program which is installed when you install the printer on your computer.

Start, all programs, Brother, control center. Click on configuration then scan then file. There are two tabs at the top, change the paper size at bottom of each to ledger and press ok.

Scan to media is (I found) scanning to a USB drive. Try inserting a USB drive in the USB port, and "Scan to Media" should appear.

How do I select paper tray 2


You can set the Brother machine to automatically select the appropriate paper tray based on the paper size or you can manually select paper tray1 or 2. If you use the Auto Select feature, the application will automatically pull from the appropriate tray based on the document#s paper size. For this feature to work, the tray settings must be definedfrom the machine#s control panel. For instructions on how to configure this setting, continue to the section labeled: ADJUSTING YOUR BROTHER MACHINE#S PAPER SIZE SETTING)
PART 1: ADJUSTING YOUR BROTHER MACHINE#S PAPER SIZE SETTING
1. On the Brother machine, press MENU.
2. Scroll to and press GENERAL SETUP.

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.

MFC-6490CW, photocopy of 11x17 document prints 8 1/2 x 11 full scale image on 11x17 sheet. The image is centered on the 8 1/2 dimension, and located at one end of the 17 dimension. The rest of the 11x17...


First make sure you are not using "fit to page" as this feature does not work for legal size documents. To fix this problem we need to check several things. First, Press Copy, Load your document, press 1 for number of copies, press the up/down arrow until you get to "paper size" then choose legal (for 11x17). Press OK
It is also possible that your machine is set to reduce/enlarge size to less/more than 100%. If the first solution did not work start over, press copy, load document, enter 1 for number of copies, press up/down arrow to choose "enlarge/reduce" then use right/left arrows to choose 100% (again, do not choose 'fit to page') press OK. Once you have done this, you can set these as default if you like. Press Copy, press up/down arrow to choose new setting, press OK, press 1 to choose YES, press stop/exit.
