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!

What is error 41


error 41 is a critical error with the print head of your machine, you can try unplugging it for a while then plugging it back in but if that doesn't work it will probably need a new head. If the power cycle doesn't work I would suggest buying a new machine

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.

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.
