The problem is: error machine 41 can I resolved? Al


Hi,

This is a common issue on Brother printers. It means there is a problem with the print head.

Please see this link for more details:

If your printer is under warranty then you should be able to get it replaced.

Hope this helps,

Please rate my answer, thanks.

Error message 41 Unplug and call brother


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

***********************************

On most printers that are manufactured today have an error chip built onto the motherboard of the printer. If your printer experiences an error. It will register it on on the chip. You will continue getting the error because it needs to be cancelled. To cancel this error follow the instructions below:
1) Turn print on
2) Unplug the printer from the power
3) Wait at least 70 seconds
4) Plug it back in
The error should be cancelled

If the error returns then you take it to a
Brother service centre

Brother MFC-3820CN error 41


Not good sorry

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 - I have a Brother printer/fax/photocopier/scanner MFC - purchased about 3 years ago. I can't lift it to find a serial number because my right arm is sprained. But I can tell you it uses "LC 31...


No, I didn't fix it. It says "Error 41. Unplug machine and call Brother." I figure it means it's crapped out. I don't wanna pay to have somebody tell me I need a new one?! Brother oughta be offering Error advice for free to bring folks back as repeat customers. If you have any free advice - it'll earn a future customer! Thanks for your time. Robin

Error #41


This is a normally a printhead error. You can try cleaning it, or replacing it. I went down that route with an Epson . . .It turned out to be more of a hassle, and did not solve the root problem. If still under warranty I would call the manufacturer (Brother). If it's out of warranty, and you can not change the printhead, I would replace it.

Printer- mechanical 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 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!
