Question about Brother MFC 490cw Color Inkjet Multi-Function Printer
Hi! Please try this. Remove the black cartridge and shake well. Check the ink well if there are dried inks that may block the ink flow then use a cloth to clean it. Reinsert the black ink cartridge then run cleaning. This should print normally after the procedure. Hope this helps and have a good one!
