    I have used Brother ink since new and tried cleaning the printhead without removing it. Is there an easy way to get it out and clean it better? Thanks, Mike

Hi, Unfortunately, this is caused by the printer head. It will gradually stop working. However, some things to try is to clean the print head. This is literally opening the printer and cleaning the head. Also, avoid using refill ink cartridges as they damage the print head a lot quicker. Get brand new cartridge if you are using refills. If this still doesn't help, then the print head have already been damaged and need to be replaced. By the way, if this printer is still under warranty, brother should replace either the printer or the print head for you free of cost.

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.

sorry!

Printer- mechanical error 41


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. Usually just after warranty has expired!

Hi,

Error 41 is common problem for all Brothet MFC printers.
To fix it, you have to change the Print heads of your printer.If your printer is still under warranty, call Brother 1-800-276-7746(Voice) 1-949-859-2272 (Fax)
and get yourself a new Printhead "free of cost".

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.

Wont print anything


Move the ink cartridge carriage (the printhead) to the middle of the printer like you're going to change cartridges.  Take out all the ink cartridges.  There should be two black springs on either side of the printhead.  Remove these and the printhead should pop out.  Clean the nozzels (the little parts that squirt out ink) and reassemble.

If this doesn't work, then you'll have to replace the printhead.

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
