Re: Back cover open
There is a sensor on the back of the fax machine inside the back door area. There you should see a few plastic chutes that may have a small movable plastic lever called a actuator. This actuatoer may have come out of its pivot points. The parts usually can be snapped back into place. Check by moving the parts and see if the error message goes off. You must move the chute open or closed while looking at the lcd display. This may narrow down your issue.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Please try the following to see if we can resolve this error:
1. Open the cover of the printer.
2. Remove all ink tanks from the printer.
3. Lift up the gray locking lever on the side of the ink tank holder.
4. Gently remove the print head from the carriage unit.
5. Place the print head back in and lock the lever down.
6. Place all of the ink tanks back in the printer.
7. Close the cover and turn the printer off.
8. Unplug the power from the printer. Leave the power unplugged for about 5-10 minutes.
Once this has been done, plug the power back in and turn the printer on. If the error persists, you will need to replace the print head

When you see light print it can be from a few things. This is basically a laser printer with a fax machine so the same problems exist in both. The most common cause by far is simply low toner. If you take out the toner cartidge and gentl shake it side to side then put it back in. Now try printing again. This should be much darker. This may only last a few dozen pages (but can go a quite a bit more if you are lucky) but it shows you that you need to get a new toner cartridge. The other causes can be a image setting in the fax. In the control panel it will show you a setting for how dark it will print. Normally it is in the middle of the range. The last common thing is a fusor wire. This normally shows up as a error first but it can slowly fail. The fusor is the heater that bonds the toner to the paper. If it doesn't get hot enough then not all the toner sticks and you get light printing.
The message that you're getting means that either the back cover is not closed securely or there's a jammed paper inside. Here's what you can do to clear the message:
-Please unplug the fax machine for your safety
-Open the front cover
-Remove the toner & drum assembly (theres a handle in the center of the drum/toner assembly, just pull it towards you.
-Remove any pieces of paper stuck or the jammed paper
-Remove the toner from the drum and check for any other pieces of paper stuck
-Once everything is clear
-Reinstall the toner back into the drum and the drum & toner assembly to the fax machine. You should hear it click into place once installed correctly
-Close the front cover & plug in the power cord. That should clear the message
Hope this helps,
Thumbs up if it does, thanks!
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!
with machine on, open front cover, press the "options" button, you should see "replace drum?" press the "start" key then 1 then 0. display should show accepted for a couple of secs. then show cover open. close front cover and message should be gone. if not, you will have to contact Brother.
The carrier that goes back & forth has a timing strip ( a plastic strp about 1/4" wide and goes the legth of the machine) If you open the top cover. put your hand in the hole fill twards the front of the machine and the top cover. now the carrier has a U shaped sensore that this strip goes through. 9 times out of 10 the stip has gottin bummped out of position. now you need to put that strip back in the sensore. hard to do with covers on. if look close at the top cover not that hard to take off.
Open the cover, leaving everything inside. Press Options, then *00 to reset the fax.
If that doesn't work:
Open the front cover and remove the cartridge and drum. Turn off the fax. On the right-hand side of the cartridge, there is a round hole that is covered with a clear plastic or glass. Cover that hole up with tape, put the cartridge back in the drum, and put them back into the fax, and turn it back on.
