I installed a new router, and my screen went blank. Seemed it was lost. I removed the printer from my computer. Then I downloaded updated drivers. And reinstalled the software, and it was back again.

The LCD display screen is blank, back-light remains on. Powering off machine to power back on results in loud, abrasive rattle which seems to come from scanner. Unable to do anything with device.


When this happens the first thing you should do is check the connections to the LCD screen. However if it was working fine before this is most likely not necessary since they have to be connected properly to show anything. After that you would need to replace the LCD or the Logic board. If everything else is working properly then the problem is more than likely the LCD needs to be replaced.

I have recently installed a Brother MFC-6490CW printer on an iMac with OS X 10.6.6. When attempting to print, I have a choice of two printers: 1) Brother MFC-6490CW (default) or 2) just MFC-6490CW. When...


You have 2 printers because it was inadvertently installed twice. You need to un-install both of them and reinstall the printer again.

Brother MCF-6490CW will not intall drivers with Windows 7 Ultimat


The drivers should come inboxed with windows 7 on the official final versions. Later on the drivers also will be released on brother's homepage(s), but they usually take some time before uploading drivers to the homepage when new OS' are released. Try using the Add Printer Wizard and see if you're able to find the MFC-6490CW in the list of printers available.
