If the driver installed correctly you should just be able to open up the file you want to print. Then go to File, Print and select the Brother printer. Click print and see if it works.

Good luck!

I want to find out if my mfc 3420c still works. The printer gives the message, that it needs the colour "magenta". Still I want to print a piece of paper - but it just won't!! I have installed new drivers,...


Yes. It will not print without all the ink cartridges having ink. Even if all you want to print has not color(just black), if magenta is out, it will not print. Very frustrating.

Problema con impresora MFC-3420C


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.

All the Best and good luck: Pineworks

Hi, Billy.

1. Remove your printer from Printers and Faxes
2. Disconnect the printer cable.
3. Restart your computer
4. Reconnect the printer cable.
5. Your computer should see the printer and install the driver.

Hope this helps.
