Uninstall all of the software, if the software is still installed. Unplug the printer, reinstall the software,plug the printer in,reboot the computer. If you still get the same error, remove the usb cable and plug it back in. This happens either because the software is not fully installed correctly, so the com0puter can't read the all in one. OR the USB cable is messed up which inturn the PC can't read the printer fully. If after installing the software and checking the cable you still got the issue, all in one is having communication issues. You will most likely have to call brother for that. Also make sure to try to printer on another computer if you can. If it works on another computer, its software. If it doesn't its not software its the cable or the printer messed up. Also at times I noticed brother printers need reset on the interface of the printer. You should be able to call brother to get the maintenace code to reset the printer.

I have a brother mfc4420c machine and everytime i turn it on it gives me a error code of 41 could you please tell me what this is thank you


Hi there
I found this on some other pages.

Error 41's can be caused by the carriage losing position, there is a timing fence (a plastic strip) which goes through the carriage assembly a light (opto) counts the extreemly fine black lines on the strip so the printer knows where the carriage is. This strip collects ink, dust etc. and will require cleaning. otherwise the printhead(carriage) loses its position throwing up a 41 error. You can clean this strip with isoproprol or just a bit of tissue and warm water, becareful you dont pull it off otherwise it can be a fiddly going on putting it back without taking the covers off. :o)
THE ERROR 41 INDICATES AN INCORRECT VOLTAGE COMMING FROM THE PRINTHEAD, THE PRINTHEAD WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED AND THE HEAD I.D. WILL NEED TO BE RESET, ALSO, BROTHER RECOMENDS THAT YOU CHANGE ALL OF THE INKS TO NEW INKS. THE RESETING OF THE HEAD I.D. CAN ONLY BE PREFORMED BY AN ATHORIZED BROTHER SERVICE CENTER. THIS REPAIR CAN NOT BE PREFORMED BY THE END USER. I HOPE THIS HELPS.

Unplug machine error 41 brother 3100c


Error 41 means the head drive voltage has not been turned from Low to High within the specified time.

It is a major problem for Brother and they are well aware of it.

It boils down to this... It needs a new print head and 4 new cartridges to prime it with. Call Brother and complain like heck! There have a been a huge amount of these head failures! A new head costs around $100.00 but if you call Brother, they will replace it.

Error 41. Unplug machine and call Brother


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.

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!
