Re: printer/copier does not work.
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!
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

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
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.
This is the only reference I could find on error 41:
How can I clear the message Machine Error 41 from the display? (ME41)
Machine Error 41 indicates a mechanical malfunction of the Brother machine. Unplug the unit from the power source and then plug it back in.
If the error message continues to be displayed on the LCD, please call Brother Customer Service at 1-800-284-4329 for assistance. The Customer Service center is open Monday through Friday, from 9:00AM to 7:00PM, excluding holidays
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
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.
