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.

All the Best and good luck: Pineworks

Error 76


try this- press the "menu/set" button, then " *2864 " . the *2864 you have to enter within a 2 second window, so you may have to try this more than once. when you hear a long beep, you got it. press "91". you should see "parameter init" on screen. wait for that message to disappear. unplug machine at this point, wait 5 seconds and plug back in. if it comes up with that error again, then you truly have a problem with your fusing unit and will have to have repaired. sometimes though, this error can be caused just by a power outage or fluctuation. if thats the case it should come back up to normal after you successfully do this procedure.

good luck

I need to restore our fax (Brother 4100e )back to the original settings to remove all the phone/fax numbers. Can you help?


press the "menu/set", and then "*2864". you have to press these within 2 seconds. machine should beep and say "maintenance" when you've entered correctly. then press "01". panel should come up and say "parameter init". when that message clears, press "99". that should take you back to normal display.

good luck,

The power went out at the office. when the power was restored my brother intellifax 5750e will not work. there is an error 77 message displaying on it's panel.


you can try this. press "menu/set" " *2864 " within 2 secs. then press "01" and wait for a few seconds until "para init" goes away. then press "99" and when you see "please wait" unplug machine. wait for 15 secs. and plug back in and see if it comes up. if not, then you have a hard error and must have serviced.
good luck,
