Question about Brother MFC 490cw Color Inkjet Multi-Function Printer
Does it print in any of the other colours? if not, it sounds like one cartridge is empty and the printer will not print until you have full cartridges.

SOURCE: black ink is not dispensing
There may be an air bubble in the black tubing, it will take several more cleaning cycles to clear. You can tell it to clean only the black and save the other inks.

If you have installed something since yesterday you might want to use system restore. the program might be causing the flaw. If not dont worry. You will need to uninstall the printer from your printer page and reinstall it. depending if it is a networked printer or a usb connected. If networked all you have to do is follow the install wizard. but if it is a usb you will have to go to the company's website and download a printer driver. after that it should work. dont forget to restart your computer. sometimes that can help too.

Powerful cleaning is:
Press menu, then start black copy, then four
times arrow-up quickly after another.Machine will be in maintenance
mode (all lights will flash).
press 7-6-4 and OK (or start-black-copy).
When finished press 7-6-3 then start black copy,
printer will do a power purge.
Leave maintenance mode by pressing 9-9.
If this not help better think about new printer, because cost of repairing this one is profitable.
