First of all the basics to copy only you need to press the copy button in the printer itself, to print you will ot have to press any button in the printer.
Try the following Steps.
First if you have a windows operating system
Go to Start> Settings/Control Panel> Then Printers and other faxes and see how may printers icon do you see listed there, if you have multiple and unwanted icons then the printer you have delete all the icons there.
And insert the All-In-One Printer CD to the computer
Unplug the USB cable from the computers end and wait for a while until it says found new hardware and wait till all the drivers are installed
Then check in printers and faxes window there should be a new icon listed and it should say 0 Ready.
Now right click on the printers icon>Go to> Properties and click on Print test page.
And when ever you print any document make sure in the window you have the right printer listed

MFC-490CW two ink colours just not printing, it still prints biut just with black and blue, tried cleaning them the normal way but they still wont print. Cant get into maintenence mode to try better...


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.

Changed all 3 colors and black---Red not printing


Print is brown: mingles yellow with bk and cyan and red.

Did you use generic ink? You have to use a set of original brother ink carts: dinsert the original carts. press menu then start b/w copy then fourtimes arrow-up. when machine is in maintenance mode press 7 then 6 then 4 then start b/w copy. machine will initiate the carts and do some power cleaning. whnen finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start b/w copy. machine does a power purge. leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9. Do run a test print. If you cant see any mag. do the power purge two days later. If your not lucky then (you cant see ANY mag squares on test print) the head is defective and needs replacemnt.

Prints header and footer but nothing in between


Make sure that the carts are FULL, placed well and are secured!

press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up-button.
machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will initialize the carts and refresh ink in tubes and the ph. leave the maintenance mode when finished by pressing 9 then 9.

Run a quality test print.

If you still cant see any bk this might be because of generic ink which had clogged the bk channel. this cant be fixed anymore!

Will not print black


The ph will be cleaned by pressing ink thru the system (tubes and ph). Do use only dye-ink for this procedure. The best way is to use original brother ink.
place a new cart into position and make sure that they are secured.

press menu then start bk copy then fortimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink and do some cleaning. afterwards press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. machine will do a power purge. when finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode. do run a test quality print by pressing ink etc.. If you cant see any bk the ph is defenetly clogged and cant be fixed anymore. It needs replacing.

Color printing


if you have used generic ink the ph might be destroyed.

Nevertheless give it a try (use nearly FULL carts):

press menu then start bk copy then 4 times arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh tubes and ph with new ink and do some cleaning cycles. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. machine will do a power cleaning. leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9. Do run a quality test print by pressing ink etc. If you cant see any color blocks the ph has to be replaced by a new one.

Printer will not print- blank returns


make sure carts are placed well and secured.

press menu then start bk copy then four times arrow-up (tel. index). machine switches to maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink in tubes and ph and do some cleaning. after that press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. machine will do a power purge. after that leave mode by pressing 9 then 9. Run a quality test print by pressing ink etc.
If you still cant see any colors the ph has dryed out. If you see some blocks try a manual cleaning (pressing ink shift to cleaning etc.). If the next test print out still is bad the ph is clogged due to generic ink and cant be cleaned anymore. In both way ph needs replacement.

unplug maqchine from power. take all carts out. wait 5 minutes. connect machine to power. insert carts as demanded. give the right answer if machine asks if the carts are changed. machine will do some cleaning.

do you use generic ink? in that case you might have clogged the printhead with wrong ink. The ph cant be cleaned anymore.

nevertheless try this (carts should be nearly full!):
press menue then start mono (blue copy) then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4. Machine will display init_all. press start mono. machine will refill tubes and
ph with fresh ink and do some cleaning. after that press 7 then 6 then 3 and start mono. machine will do a powerpurge.
press zero then 9 to do a quality test print. If it cant do the job leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9. do the test print manually by pressing ink etc.

If you still do not see any colors the ph is clogged and cant be fixed anymore. It has to be replaced.

Colors not print well


This could be because of a defective valve.

DO NOT CLEAN THE PIEZO PH WITH ANY SOLUTION EXCEPT ORINIGNAL BROTHER INK!!!! OTHERWISE YOU WILL DEFENETLY DESTROY THE PH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try this:

Place new carts into machine and make sure thy are secured.

Press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode and lights will flash. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink within tubes and ph and do some cleaning. when done press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. machine will do a power purge.
Leave maintenance afterwards by pressing 9 then 9. Do run a test print by pressing ink etc.
If you still cant see any yellow and/or magenta the ph is defective and needs replacement.
