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!
You could try cleaning the one on there, but all brothers similar to yours are plagued by this problem.
To clean it try:
SWITCH MACHINE ON WHILST HOLDING DOWN MENU/SET KEY, THIS PUTS MACHINE INTO FACTORY SETTINGS MODE. (MAINTENANCE WILL SHOW ON LCD) ENTER CODE:84 & WAIT WHILE MACHINE PERFORMS A FORCED CLEANING CYCLE. (cLEANING WILL SHOW ON DISPLAY) NOW ENTER CODE:09 & MACHINE WILL PRINT OUT ITS PRINT QUALITY CHECK SHEET. (IGNORE INSTRUCTIONS PRINTED ON CHECK SHEET) CHECK QUALITY & REPEAT BY USING CODE:84 IF NEEDED. (YOU MAY HAVE TO DO THIS SEVERAL TIMES BUT YOU SHOULD SEE A STEADY IMPROVEMENT WITH EACH CLEANING CYCLE)
WHEN FINISHED AND QUALITY IS GOOD, ENTER CODE:99 TO RETURN TO STANDARD MODE. PRESS MENU/SET 4, THEN MONO FAX START TO PRINT OUT PRINT QUALITY CHECK SHEET & FOLLOW ON SCREEN INSTRUCTIONS.
It needs a new printhead. I have heard you can find them on ebay. A service center would charge you too much to be feasable. Not because they want to rip you off but because they have to make a profit like any other business.
