SOURCE: Brother MFC-490CW Won't Print

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.

I would advise reinstalling the driver software and let the software re-find the printer again. Should do the trick!

SOURCE: Brother MFC-490CW won't scan

I have had this problem with multiple different Brother products and this has worked for me every time providing your network is up and running.
Reason behind problem: Brother uses a Network Name for the device for access to the printer by the TCP/IP Port, occasionally your dns cache will hold the incorrect IP address for the printer and you need to force the network name to point at the correct IP.
**Note the steps to find your printer IP may change depending on the model of your printer but you can find out where it is in your manual if this doesn't work.
1. On your printer press the menu button. 2. Naviagate to LAN -> TCP/IP -> IP Address 3. When you press ok on IP Address it should show the printers current IP at the top of the page. It will look something like 192.168.0.164 keep a note of this. 4. Back on your computer go to Control Panel 5. Open printers (this may vary slightly by operating system) 6. Find your Brother MFC and right click on it. Then press Properties. 7. Click on the Ports Tab. 8. Select the port that has a tick next to it and press Configure Port... 9. Note down the Port Name: It will be something like BRN_984B5C 10. You can now close all of the printer windows. 11. Open File Explorer 12. Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ 13. There will be a file called hosts (no extention) double click on it and choose Notepad to open the file. 14. At the bottom of this document after all the other text you will need to type in the following (using the information we have found): 192.168.0.164 BRN_984B5C 15. Close and save the file. As you are in Vista you may have some funky UAC windows asking if you are sure you want to save etc. etc. just say yes.
That should do it, your printer will now be able to scan, print & fax from the printer and the printer will be able to find you if you do the same from it's menu.
Hope this helps.

Need to the baud rate how do you do it


Enter Maintenance Mode:

1. Unplug power from rear of Fax machine, hold the Menu button while plugging power back in. Continue to hold the Menu button until "Maintenance" appears in the LCD window.
2. There are no helps for the Maintenance mode. Follow parameter change procedures to the letter.

Changing Baud Rate from Automatic to 9600:

1. Enter 10 (one, zero). This will bring up WSW00 on the LCD window.
2. Change the 00 to 19. If the baud rate is set to automatic, the numbers that appear will be 11100010.
3. Change the 11100010 to 01100010. This sets the baud rate to 9600.
4. Press the "Set" button just below the LCD window.
5. Press "Stop".
6. Enter 99. This will exit Maintenance mode and make the fax ready to use again.

Baud rate


1. Why 9600?

Because you are using a VOIP service it can from time to time lose connection briefly. The slower the speed the less data can be loss do to network congestion. It also gives the error correcting function of the receiving fax a better chance of filling in any lost data.
9600 is a good choice becasue the industry minimum is 9600. This means you will be able to communicate pretty much any fax thats is still tickin today. Raising the speed will get you a faster transfer but will also increase the chance that you are sending data at a faster rate than the recieving fax can send.

You should change the Baud rate to 9600 on the machine. This should correct your issue.

Also call vonage and they have some settings they can modify to improve performance.
