Does not work for #41 error code= bad printhead.  I kept getting this cose.  Looked aroiund for a new pinthead on the net.  Left the printer unplugged from power for 24 hours and unplugged the usb.  Re-plugged and viola!  Worked again! Strange, but, I'm happy.

Mukuwa, here are a couple of suggestions: How do I clear a Machine Error 41? Description: * Machine Error 41 indicates a mechanical malfunction of the FAX/DCP/MFC. * Unplug the unit from the power source and then plug it back in again. * If the error message continues to be displayed on the LCD, please contact Brother Customer Service. 1. Open the Scanner cover by pulling up on the edge of the scanner just above the LCD. 2. After 15 seconds, re-close the Scanner cover. 3. The LCD will then display Have you removed Blck? 1 Yes 2 No. The LCD will display this question for ALL 4 colours (not just the ones replaced). If 1 Yes is selected, the LCD will then display Change to new (colour)? 1 Yes 2 No. Note o "Change to new (colour)?" will only appear if 1 Yes is selected for "Have you removed (colour)?" If 2 NO is selected for the "removed" question, the LCD will then move on to the question for the next colour. o If "1 Yes" is NOT selected for the colour(s) that was replaced, the LCD will return to "Ink Empty". 4. After all the correct selections are made, the machine will then go into a cleaning. Once the cleaning is complete, the LCD will return to date and time. If you still have the same problem, contact Brother Customer Service. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/eu/gb/en/faq/faq_top.htm?reg=eu&c=gb&lang=en&prod=mfc3820cn_eu Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

My printer has stop printing on my brother mfc 5100c


Hi there

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 if it is under warranty.

If it's out of warranty they are usually a throw away job, the heads cost as much as the printer.

Sorry I know what it feels like, just have a go and see what you can do, clean the heads and so on.

All the Best and good luck: Pineworks

Error 41 is showing up on the screen. says to contact brother. It's a intellifax 1820c.


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!

Error 41 on Brother DCP-4020C


Honest answer?
Give it a throw to the bin!

Error 41 means that the print head is defectiv. You have to change the ph, but this spare part is highly expensive: 
You are better up by buying a new dcp, which is cheaper than a single ph!
