Will not print black even with a brand new cartridge


Brother has had a problem with this model and several similar ones not printing black. If it's still in it's one-year warranty, find a service center here, and Brother will pay the servicer for everything. If it's just out of warranty, call Brother and beg for them to issue a Service Request, which is like an extension of the warranty for this one situation. They'll replace your printhead and all ink cartridges. (It may still come back low on ink, because it uses a bunch of ink purging air and old ink from the tubes & head after the repair.

But before all that, try several cleaning cycles, and make sure you have genuine Brother ink in the machine. Brother won't pay for a repair on this unless it has their own ink in it.

If it's long out of warranty, it can still be repaired, but will probably cost more than a new machine.

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!

Ink and Toner is how Fax and Printer companies make their money, the machine is just a way to sell supplies.

Yes, you will have to replace the Toner/Ink because they lubricate the print heads/drums.

My brother fax machine is indicating that two color cartridges are almost empty, however i never print anything and color, and basically everything is black. so how can they be almost empty?


Three reasons -

If your print driver is set to color. It will use all the colors to make black.

Because the machine is ink jet it needs to clean the print head to stop it from drying out. It will use color ink to flush the print head every two days.

When ever in receives a fax it will use some color when printing a fax, particularly Cyan.

If you only wish to print or receive faxes in black there is now a version of Brother fax that only uses black ink and has no color inks. However it may not be available in your region. If you try and cheat the system you will only kill your print head.
