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.

SOURCE: my Brother MFC-490CW won't print
Did you try onboard print test by pressing INK LEVEL button. I am having similar problem but color prints but black does not. The printer has built in diagnostics that walks you thru some troubleshooting steps. It has you repeat cleaning 5 times and then asks you to replace cartridges if test fails...than repeat tests and call customer support if that does not work. Which I may do soon.

That error says that the carriage is not moving properly side to side or the encoder strip is dirty or out of position. You have to look inside for scraps or encoder position with a flashlight and mirror or remove the top cover to correct the problem.

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.

You may not see a paper jam.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.
First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.
And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
