Question about Brother MFC 6490CW InkJet Printer
Remove the black ink cartrige and rub the print head into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows. If not rubbing alcohol, no problem. Just rub the printhead into a plain paper.
Then try to print again. I hope it helps you. Please post comments if you need more help. Regards

For the offline status have a look at this link,
for the faded ink or faded printing try cleaning procedure also you can set the printing contrast or brightness, you may also want to see if your cartridge is genuine, using fake or refilled inks causes faded prints, or even sometimes offline printers, By default, the Brother machine is designed to conserve ink.
