This is definitely the print head. You will need to purchase a new print head and install this. It is very easy to install all that you need to do is lift the printer lid and extract the ink cartridges. The printhead is the black part under the ink cartridges and on either side of it is a lock and release bar. push these down and out wards to loosen them and then lift the print head out. replace the print head and then you will need to input the print head ID in maintenance mode on the printer. Turn the printer off and hold down the menu/set button and power on. You will here it beep and all the lights flash on the panel. The punch in 68 2580 I think from memory i could be wrong but just look it up if you can get hold of a service many and then enter the new printhead code and 99 to exit. Done Hope this answers your question.

Error 41


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

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.

Brother mfc 420 cn


if you have an error 41 the machine wont print any more due to a short circuit in the print head.

plz check error message.

anyway, if you have received error 41 you need a new printhead or better (because its cheaper) a new mfc.

sorry!

Error 41


you cant clear error 41. It means that the printhead is rotten.

Do call brother hotline and ask for free replacement. They have changed the warranty because this is a faulty design by brother!

BRother printer error code 41


The printhead is defective. Call brother hotline. Because this is a very common error (due to malconstruction on the mfc 3820 ) they might replace it for free. And when asked: OF COURSE YOU HAD ALWAYS RUN THE UNIT BY ORIGINAL INK CARTRIDGES!!!! :-) (take the ink carts out before sending or giving it to a service dealer!)
