Question about Brother MFC-3220C Plain Paper Inkjet Fax
I am getting a machine error 41 message from my Brother MFC 3220c printer. Can you advise?
I had the same problem with a Brother MFC3420C after replacing the print head with a new one the same error 41 occured 4 weeks later.
I finally fixed the problem (see photo's) and sent the parts back to Brother :-)
Don't buy Brother Inkjet technology its all ****!.
Their laser technology seems to be much more robust and reliable, have had a Brother HL-1440 since 2004 and its still running well.

I had the same problem after replacing the print head. I removed the ink cartridge and then unclip the two metal two clips by the side that hold the print head. Then I used WD40 to spray through the ink holes until the clear liquid comes out from the print head.Then I replaced everything back and start the cleanning process, do a few test prints. It works ok now, no more Machine Error 41. Therefore, sometime the problem might just be clogged pin heads!

Soulvisitor is right, time for new print head, brother mfc3420 the same result, too pricey time for new printer its cheaper :-)

Not worth fixing I'm afraid
Very common, error 41 is stuffed print head, fix is replace head cost about $250 fitted
Time for a new printer and beware of after market inks that you feed it some do more damage than good.
