Have you tried power off then on again, if yes, go to
START> PRINTER AND FAXES> right click your printer which is the brother mfc-490cw and uncheck USE PRINTER OFFLINE. when you right click your printer there, there shoul no check on the selection USE PRINTER OFFLINE. if that doesnt fix it still, check the usb cable or even try replacing it(the cable) or relocate to where is connected (usb port) on your pc.
a fine feedback would suffice

Why the offline message


Hi,
Check the status of the printer at Control Panel. Set it to online if it's shown as offline. If this doesn't fix the problem, check whether installing the vista driver available at your printer manufacturer's website helps.

Step 1:
a. Click Start, go to Control Panel and select Hardware and Sound.
b. Click Printer.
c. If the Printer is offline, it shows "Offline" status. If the Printer is online it shows "Ready".
d. If the Printer is offline, set it to online.
e. Right-click on the printer and select "Use Printer Online".
f. The display should change to ready when the printer is set to online.

    Printer Offline Message


    Hi,

    Go to system settings and select the 'Printer' option.

    Right-click on the printer and enable the 'Use Printer Online' function.

    Cancel all the printing jobs till that moment and redo the process.

    Sometimes the 'Printer Offline' message occurs due to a 'Job Stuck' issue.

    Check all network connections and functions.

    Be sure the network interfaces work properly.

    Turn the printer off and on to see whether the device is working properly.
