It's a problem with the circuitry that drives the printer head, and Brother is aware that it's substandard. They extended the warranty period for this issue, but I think even the fault coverage has now lapsed. .the print head on the unit is considered a "consumable" meaning, while it is intended for high volume, after a certain level of use it will need to be replaced.

    error 41 is a problem that affects a LOT of Brother inkjet printers. It
    basically means the printhead is screwed and needs replacing. Despite
    what they say it is a huge
    problem, and they know this. The good news is they have extended the
    warranty on it to 24 months by purchase date or to 30 months by your
    serial number. Additionally if you have had any warranty repair or
    exchanging for whatever issue you have another 6 months extension on
    the warranty coverage.If your machine is out of warranty it'swill cost you about $30 for
    the printhead and $80 for the repair... Brother should pay this but of
    course they don't. However,They will not cover your repair BUT they will send you out the equivalent in ink!!!Brother has extended the warranty period for "Machine Error 41" to 24
    months of proof of purchase or 30 months of serial number. Please call
    our toll free customer service support line at 1-800 284-4329 M-F to
    verify if your machine is within the warranty period. . If your product
    is within the extended warranty period, Brother will cover the repair
    cost to have your Print Head replaced. Brother has corrected the
    "Machine Error 41" error condition.hope this helps

My printer has stop printing on my brother mfc 5100c


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.

It says machine error 41 on my brother MFC 5100C machine


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 it is under warranty. If it's out of
warranty then it is cheaper to purchase a new, non Brother model. If you have been using non-Brother cartridges or refills, they can have too much water in them and it erodes the print head after a while. Usuall y just after warranty has expired!

I change replace all ink in my brother mfc-5100c after that I receive this message: "Machine error 41, unplug the machine call brother". Please,What can I do to fix it? I rely on you for any assitance.


Machine Error 41means the printhead is bad. It's a fairly easy repair on that model, but an expensive part and requires replacing all four ink cartridges at the same time. New machines are so much smaller and cheaper that it may not be worth it. There are also some setting that must be changed in Service Mode to match the machine to the characteristics of the new head.
If you're still interested, look for Brother part number LK0935001.

Error 41


Hello ttom_98,
The problem you are having/experiencing with your printer, is a Defective Model. If you read up on it, and even on the main site and in some stores it says that you can return that specific model for a Better one. Most of the MFCs are experiencing this problem, and the only way to get it fixed is to return it, trade it for a new one, or send it out to a company.
