SOURCE: BRother printer error code 41
The printhead is defective. Call brother hotline. Because this is a very common error (due to malconstruction on the mfc 3820 ) they might replace it for free. And when asked: OF COURSE YOU HAD ALWAYS RUN THE UNIT BY ORIGINAL INK CARTRIDGES!!!! :-) (take the ink carts out before sending or giving it to a service dealer!)

First, I see a potential problem.
Do you have both wireless router's hooked up? If you do, what frequency are they?
If they are 2.4 GHz, then you have an overlap of wireless connections. Also, do you have any 2.4 GHz house phones. They can cause interference as well as fluorescent lights. If you are in a basement as well, you will have to use a repeater because concrete causes wireless signals to bounce.
If you have any further questions or if this doesn't work, post a response to this.
If none of the above apply to you except the basement, you will need to go to your computer or electronics store and purchase a print server (and a repeater if in a basement). Connect the print server to the router and, if in the basement, then you will need to position the repeater close to the basement hallway and enter the MAC address into the router as well.
Follow the manufacturer's guidelines.

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

When entering the wep key, after each character is entered push the right arrow. If the same character repeats itself it will overwrite the other if you dont.
