    Cannot unlock the carriage

    There is a little lever under the carriage on the left,used for locking the carriage when in transit.Move the lever in the opposite direction,if that does not work press the Capital Lock Key then try it.If this does not work,it will be your carriage return spring having lost its tension.This is the round drum(wheel ) on the back of the carriage connected by a cord.

    Brother MFC-6490CW printer error unable to print 36

    Any of the 30 series errors say that the carriage is not free to move from side to side across the paper. You need to look close on each side of the machine where the carriage travels to see if there's a paper scrap stopping it. Also the encoder strip could be out of the slot in the carriage assembly. If all is OK you need a shop repair to determine if the logic or carriage pcb's are OK.
