Hello ttom_98,
The problem you are having/experiencing with your printer, is a Defective Model. If you read up on it, and even on the main site and in some stores it says that you can return that specific model for a Better one. Most of the MFCs are experiencing this problem, and the only way to get it fixed is to return it, trade it for a new one, or send it out to a company.

There's a possiblility that you can still recover your files. Try to plug your hard drive to a different PC and check if it detects it. Otherwise, there's no hope but to buy a new hard drive.

Brother mfc 420 cn

if you have an error 41 the machine wont print any more due to a short circuit in the print head.

plz check error message.

anyway, if you have received error 41 you need a new printhead or better (because its cheaper) a new mfc.
