Question about Brother MFC 6490CW InkJet Printer
You need to do the Power Purge Option: It works like a charm on my 6490....
Hold down the menu key. While still holding the menu key, unplug the machine and plug it back in. Do not let go of the key until the machine reboots and the screen says "maintenence". Hit the following keys: 7, 6, 4,black start. The machine will then go into "power purge" or deep clean mode for about 5-7 minutes. When complete hit: 99 to get out of maintanence and reboot. Be sure to have extra ink cartidges on hand as it does use up a lot of ink but this process works the best every time when the printer wont print

Hi, the print heads sometimes have a finite number of pages they will print- and sometimes actually become clogged, it is my opinion to buy a new printer, they are usually in the $30 range I think now these days. sorry I couldn't be of more assistance-I have had little success myself trying to fix similar problems. Good luck and hope this helps, Prodzilla
