Error 41: printhead ruined! No chance to fix it, has to be replaced. If machine still is in guarantee give it to a service dealer. DONT leave cartridges inside when you give it to service. When asked, tell them you had ALWAYS uesd original brother ink carts only :-)

Error 41

error 41 is a printhead fault. The only repair is a new printhead. The price went up this year so a new one will cost you at least $89.00 plus labor.

Brother MFC-5100C Printer - Error 41 - unplug and call Brother

Sorry this not good news it is the head

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

Machine error 41

Machine Error 41 indicates a mechanical malfunction with FAX/DCP/MFC.Often, unplugging the unit from the power source and then plugging it back in again can clear this error message.If the message continues to be displayed on the LCD, please contact YOUR PRINTER Customer Service for more options.

Unable to Print


"Error 41 is problem related to printhead. The first thing you will need to do is to unplug power cable on the back of machine and leave it 30 minutes to 1 hour, then plug in back to see if Error 41 is still there. If so, please contact local service agent to deal with that. Error 41 is problem related to print head and technician will change new one to fix this problem."

Brother mfc 420 cn

if you have an error 41 the machine wont print any more due to a short circuit in the print head.

plz check error message.

anyway, if you have received error 41 you need a new printhead or better (because its cheaper) a new mfc.

Machine errror 41 of brother mfc 3100c


Error 41 is common problem for all Brothet MFC printers.
To fix it, you have to change the Print heads of your printer.If your printer is still under warranty, call Brother 1-800-276-7746(Voice) 1-949-859-2272 (Fax)
and get yourself a new Printhead "free of cost".

Error 41 on Brother MFC-3420C. I have tried unplugging and restarting. There aren't any paper jams or visible problems. There is dial tone to machine but fax will only ring when called, no start tone...

Hi,have the same problem since yesterday. Look on """You can fix the ERROR 41. Go to and look up part# LK0935001. They sell it for $39.99 and it is very simple to install""".Good luck.
