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

My printer has an error #41 on the screen what


THE ERROR 41 INDICATES AN INCORRECT VOLTAGE COMMING FROM THE PRINTHEAD, THE PRINTHEAD WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED AND THE HEAD I.D. WILL NEED TO BE RESET, ALSO, BROTHER RECOMENDS THAT YOU CHANGE ALL OF THE INKS TO NEW INKS. THE RESETING OF THE HEAD I.D. CAN ONLY BE PREFORMED BY AN ATHORIZED BROTHER SERVICE CENTER. THIS REPAIR CAN NOT BE PREFORMED BY THE END USER. I HOPE THIS HELPS.

My fax mfc3220c say message error 41 when I turn it on. It also say unplug and call brothers


Error 41 means there is a major problem with the printhead, usually
requires a print head replacement. My advice is to take it to a
Brother service centre while it is under warranty. If it's out of
warranty then it is cheaper to purchase a new, non Brother model. If you have been using non-Brother cartridges or refills, they can have too much water in them and it erodes the print head after a while. Usuall y just after warranty has expired!

Brother MFC 3220c machine error 41


I had the same problem with a Brother MFC3420C after replacing the print head with a new one the same error 41 occured 4 weeks later.

I finally fixed the problem (see photo's) and sent the parts back to Brother :-)

Don't buy Brother Inkjet technology its all ****!.

Their laser technology seems to be much more robust and reliable, have had a Brother HL-1440 since 2004 and its still running well.

Brother MFC-3220C


Error 41 is Print head needs to be replaced, on this model it is not a big job, Heads can be purchased from Brother dealers, ring brother to locate if you wish to repair this machine rather than replace it.

Head sells for about $80 for the part from a brother dealer 1-800-284-4329 and it will need a new set of inks too, not really worth it just replace with new machine with ink and a warranty.

Very common issue, brother extended warranty for this fault for two years but yours would be past it by now, the s/n tells of build date, the first two digits of the LAST NINE of the serial number indicate build date, so a K6J702822 ending serial no. means it was built K6 = Nov 06.

I beleive that this is a result a lot of the time by the use of refills and remanufactured ink cartridges being used.

There is heaps of info on net regarding "error 41".

Printer problem


It needs a new printhead. I have heard you can find them on ebay. A service center would charge you too much to be feasable. Not because they want to rip you off but because they have to make a profit like any other business.
