That is a printhead error. call brother and see if its under warranty by giving them the serial number. if its not, the last i knew, the printhead w/ cartridges was about $100.00. hth, ray

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 shows

Error 41 is a printhead failure. The only way to fix it to replace the printhead there unfortunately is no way to recover the printhead. If you decide to replace the printhead please do not leave the machine of for extended periods of time (causes the printhead to dry out as it can not do its cleaning cycles), use only genuine ink (I see a lot with this failure with non-genuine inks or refills) and do not cheat the ink system by running empty inks (Dries out the printhead). Just a few tips to extend the life of your printhead.

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.

Brother 1820 c error code 41

41 error for Brother generally means a printhead.  If I remember right, there should be two black springs on either side of the printhead (the thing that holds all the ink cartridges).  Take the cartridges out, unhook the springs, and pull the printhead out.

Clean it as well as you can with a damp cloth...especially where the ink squirts on to the paper.

If you put it back together and still get an error, you'll need a new printhead.  Let me know if you need the part number.
