Question about Brother MFC-3220C Plain Paper Inkjet Fax

1 Answer

Color doesn't print before and after printhead replacment.

I had an Error 41 on the printer. I gave it to repair but took it back because of the cost. (So they didn't suppose to do anything) When I got it back it printed only in black, no color. I got a new print head in eBay and installed it (this is suppose to be the solution for the Error 41) This print head too prints only black, no color. Is it possible that the technician disabled the color somehow? Thanks, Tal

No, its not possible. The problem is likely the ink has dried in the purge unit or one of the small tubes going to the waste pad. The new printhead is the fix for the ERROR 41. The problem is there is sometimes other things that go bad, purge unit being just one example. One of the biggest problems with inkjets is that consumers leave their printers alone for long periods of time and the ink dries and clogs the tiny hoses inside. Even the ink cartdriges are just ink tanks, I have replaced those many times and have seen bad ones that just won't flow, replaced the inks and it works fine. You also have to put in the id# for the printhead after you replace it. Did you do that or get the instructions?

Error 41


error 41 is a printhead fault. The only repair is a new printhead. The price went up this year so a new one will cost you at least $89.00 plus labor.

Color cartridge error


Clean the needle-like contacts where the cartridge-contacts lean on when inserted in the printer.
And push them a few times with clean finger, maybe one of them does not push back on cartridge if the printer is not new.
If all "needles" are at the same level and clean, it should work, especially with genuine Lex cartridge.

If not, then the fact that this issue occured when using a compatible cartridge is pure coincidence and your printer has an age problem, maybe it can be solved by Lexmark specialist but the cost of repair will be higher then buying a new printer.

Error 41


Error 41 means that the printhead is defective and has to be replaced by a new one. The internal piezo-electric is rotten. Sorry, no way to repair the printhead. A new printhead is more expensive than a new mfc
