    Error 41 -The head drive voltage has not been turned from Low to High within the specified time.
    Check:
    • Carriage ASSY
    • Main PCB
    • Print head unit
    • Power supply PCB

    The maintence codes to program a new print head serial number.

    Change the Printer head, then go into Maintenance mode (hold in Menu key while switching on), press 68, 2580.

    Type the number on the Printer head sticker between the 2 *'s (asterisks) in. (Printer Head Property Number). To type in the letters, hold in the # key while pressing 1 for A, 2 for B etc.

    After that press Set to save it.

    Then press 09 for print Quality Test, and check/sdjust the print quality/alignment - instructions on LCD Screen and Page.

    After that press 99 to exit Maintenance mode.

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

Machine Error 41 and USB Cable


Hi, According to the User Manual any Machine Error (XX or in your case 41) refers to a mechanical problem. You have to call Brother Customer Service (USA: 1-800-284-4329; Canada: 1-877-BROTHER; Montreal: (514) 685-6464. You can also try checking out the machine, if it is new, check that all the plastic/tape retainers are removed (outside and inside); it is also possible that there is a locking lug/nut or screw somewhere (most likely underneath) that is only needed when in transit or when shipped that must be removed/opened/released when the machine is to be in operation. The USB connection is essential, it is the PC interface (and normally should be included in the box but can be bought from any computer outlet). This is how your PC communicates what it wants to be printed to your 3420C. Hope this works for you. Good luck.
