Error 41 is faulty printhead, usually you have to replace the printhead assembly.

Try unplugging the power cord for a while first.

    Error 41 is faulty printhead and not the mechanism error as wrongly reported by others.

    You need to replace the print head.

    You can order it from

Its the mechanism error in your machine.as the problem is in the circuit board of your printer.
calling the brother service center is necessary to get it repaired.

Machine does not work. message on display says: MACHINE ERROR 41 What is that?


Very likely your print head is faulty. You can get it replaced or try the economical solution below.

I had the same problem after replacing the print head. I removed the ink cartridge and then unclip the two metal two clips by the side that hold the print head. Then I used WD40 to spray through the ink holes until the clear liquid comes out from the print head.Then I replaced everything back and start the cleanning process, do a few test prints. It works ok now, no more Machine Error 41. Therefore, sometime the problem might just be clogged pin heads!

This is a mechanical problem with the printer head it will need to be repaired.

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.

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.

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
