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

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

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

It says machine error 41 on my brother MFC 5100C machine


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. Usuall y just after warranty has expired!

I change replace all ink in my brother mfc-5100c after that I receive this message: "Machine error 41, unplug the machine call brother". Please,What can I do to fix it? I rely on you for any assitance.


Machine Error 41means the printhead is bad. It's a fairly easy repair on that model, but an expensive part and requires replacing all four ink cartridges at the same time. New machines are so much smaller and cheaper that it may not be worth it. There are also some setting that must be changed in Service Mode to match the machine to the characteristics of the new head.
If you're still interested, look for Brother part number LK0935001.
