Question about Brother MFC-3220C Plain Paper Inkjet Fax
I have had trouble with it telling me there is an error 41 what it that supposed to mean and how do i fix it so as i can use the machine?
I too had problems with ERROR 41 ( Printhead) & was told it was a common fault -repaired under warranty,But very common.If u push hard enough u should be able to get it replaced free as it is more than a random fault.I understand in the USA the warranty was doubled due to the bad feed back from all the error 41's !!

I've just had the same problems on my 3220c. ME code 41 seems to indicate blocked printheads. Move the ink carriage to it's change ink position using the ink button onr the printer. Remove the print cartridges then on the left and right side of the ink holder is a small loop at the end of a wire. Move that to the side and pull it up. Do the same for the other side. Next pull out the print head that these two wires were holding in place. I've soaked the printhead in isopropyl alcohol which has cleared most of the blocked inkjets - at least enough to use the machine as a fax which is our main usage. I'll leave it soaking overnight as well. I've ordered two new printheads from the US via ebay - very cheap compared to the UK cost.

Error 41 is the printhead, all inks must be replaced at the same time, OEM only.

Unfortanatly error 41 means that the printer head needs to be replaced. Got this from the horses mouth. I called the internnational tele # at 1-800-284-4329 and they told me you would need to take in the machine to have this repaired. You can look in your book for a # to find a servicer or go to http://www.brother.com Good Luck
