    You need to have the print head replaced. Brother is covering the cost to repair this problem if you call 1-877-276-8437 and tell them you are missing 2 colors on print outs.

    I have a MFC 490CW brother Printer I want to print B/W copies only I change the preference to grayscale but still does not print

    Hi there,
    That's the correct thing that you need to do, setting the printer preferences to GRAYSCALE. If that doesn't work you can also try printing document using a different/another application (example: Microsoft Word, Excel), because sometimes the setting of an application overrides the setting of the printer driver.
    The last option for this issue is to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver.
    Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

    Can't access Brother MFC-490CW printer using D-Link 628 wireless

    You will have to reset the "Path" to the printer, so the "Client" PC can find it. EG: \\MSHOME\Brothermfc, also ensure "Sharing" is enabled in Properties on "Main" PC. Also ensure you are all on the same "Workgroup" & PC's have a "Name", and the "Printer" is installed on the "Client" PC too. and you can print a test page from the clients too..

    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.
