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. Usually just after warranty has expired!

Have code 44 on screen and printer does not work


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hi,

Error 41 is common problem for all Brothet MFC printers.
To fix it, you have to change the Print heads of your printer.If your printer is still under warranty, call Brother 1-800-276-7746(Voice) 1-949-859-2272 (Fax)
and get yourself a new Printhead "free of cost".

Error 41


Error 41 means that the printhead is defective and has to be replaced by a new one. The internal piezo-electric is rotten. Sorry, no way to repair the printhead. A new printhead is more expensive than a new mfc

Hi, Unfortunately, this is caused by the printer head. It will gradually stop working. However, some things to try is to clean the print head. This is literally opening the printer and cleaning the head. Also, avoid using refill ink cartridges as they damage the print head a lot quicker. Get brand new cartridge if you are using refills. If this still doesn't help, then the print head have already been damaged and need to be replaced. By the way, if this printer is still under warranty, brother should replace either the printer or the print head for you free of cost.

Print head


mukuwa, here are a couple of suggestions: How do I clear a Machine Error 41? Description: * Machine Error 41 indicates a mechanical malfunction of the FAX/DCP/MFC. * Unplug the unit from the power source and then plug it back in again. * If the error message continues to be displayed on the LCD, please contact Brother Customer Service. 1. Open the Scanner cover by pulling up on the edge of the scanner just above the LCD. 2. After 15 seconds, re-close the Scanner cover. 3. The LCD will then display Have you removed Blck? 1 Yes 2 No. The LCD will display this question for ALL 4 colours (not just the ones replaced). If 1 Yes is selected, the LCD will then display Change to new (colour)? 1 Yes 2 No. Note o "Change to new (colour)?" will only appear if 1 Yes is selected for "Have you removed (colour)?" If 2 NO is selected for the "removed" question, the LCD will then move on to the question for the next colour. o If "1 Yes" is NOT selected for the colour(s) that was replaced, the LCD will return to "Ink Empty". 4. After all the correct selections are made, the machine will then go into a cleaning. Once the cleaning is complete, the LCD will return to date and time. If you still have the same problem, contact Brother Customer Service. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/eu/gb/en/faq/faq_top.htm?reg=eu&c=gb&lang=en&prod=mfc3820cn_eu Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
