What is error code -41

There doesn't appear to be any reliable information about an error 41 code for Canon inkjet machines. In a Brother machine it means a knackered printhead, but Canon has a different code for that. I can only suggest sending a message to Canon's web site/help desk to see if they can shed light on it.

Printer showing error message ...."printing

This means that your machine has received a print job that is teling it to print on paper that is loaded or supposed to be loaded in the bypass feed tray. You will either need to delete the print job using the operation panel or simple load some letter size paper in the bypass tray over on the right side of the machine.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Fax can do copies and send but not able to receive incoming faxes. Did several tests. Modem picks up but doesn't transmit data. LCD screen does not indicate any trouble or alarm.

It's possible that somehow the incoming faxes are going directly to memory and not printing. If there was a Tx issue, you'd get an error message on the LCD screen or a printed out message. Not knowing what kind of machine you have, I can't give you instructions to print from memory but if you check your manual, you should see instructions to both print from memory and set the fax to print automatically.

Faxes stuck in memory

The only reason they shouldn't print is due to a technical problem. There are no error messages or red lights at all?? That's very strange.
It must be a software glitch of some sort. You can do a memory clear to empty it out and perhaps restore the proper functioning, but it does set the machine right back to factory defaults, so you will have some settings to restore afterward.
You can get the manual here if you don't have it. Memory reset procedure is on page 8.2:

Epson R320 "General Error" message - unable to clear

If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Epson printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Fix 'Carriage Jam' : Open Door, clear carriage jam,
and then press OK to continue' error message
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

Not recieving only in memory

My good friend:

The only reason why your unit stops printin faxes is because the toner cartridge is nearly empty. Th e unit will then try to conserve the remaining toner for printing and copying. Follow this steps to program the unit to print all faxes, even with toner low:

When the toner cartridge is nearly empty, the machine shows
the “[Toner Empty]” message and continues printing except
incoming faxes. In this case, incoming faxes are saved in
However, you can set the machine to print incoming faxes, even
though print quality is not optimal.
1 Press Menu until “Machine Setup” appears on the display.
2 Press the scroll button ( or ) until “Ignore Toner”
appears on the bottom line and press Enter.
3 Press the Scroll button ( or ) to select “On” or “Off”.
Select “On” to ignore the [Toner Empty] message.
Select “Off” to stop printing incoming faxes when the
message appears. This is the default setting.
4 Press Enter to save the selection.
5 To return to Standby mode, press Stop/Clear.

Be blessed

Exactly the same as BerniceMc described (Canon L220). Powering off and on again eliminates the problem as it does all faxes in memory. Greg

Printing problem

This error message indicates that the printer memory is full. You might be sending too many documents to print at the same time. I would suggest dividing the number of documents/pages into smaller groups so the printer can take the load. Hope this helps!
