This is the Head Error 41

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

Have you checked at the Brothers web site? I find that they have the product manuals easily available. I have had two Brothers printers. I always lose the manual.

The mechanical error is something literally wrong with the mechanics, usually this error occurs after a paper jam and when the paper is pulled out it cracks the maintenance unit.

Other issues include the switching arm, the ink cartridge/purge switch harness, purge cam switch, paper feed motor, and the main pcb.

Brother MFC-665 CW with "unable to print 4F" error


My MFC 665CW popped this same "Unable To Print 4F" error recently making the machine fully useless. Just an annoying triple beep and repeat error message to screen when trying to do anything at all with it. I wrote Brother about it. They said to check all through the machine (with a light) for any paper torn off inside, or unwanted foreign objects. This is a good step to do anyway to help maintain the printer. If that is not it, they said it would be a mechanical malfunction. I tried "resetting" by unplugging it for a while as they suggested to no avail. Also while I did find a bit of paper torn off down in my MFC 665 removing it had no effect.
