I WAS ADVICED BY A LOCAL REPAIR SHOP NOT TO BOTHER BECAUSE THE PRINTER WAS SHOT AND TO EXPENSIVE TO REPAIR, SO BUY A NEW ONE AND THAT K-MART HAS A GOOD DEAL ON A PRINTER FAX. FOR LESS THAN 50 BUCKS THANKS FOR YOU REPLY UNLESS YOU CAN COME UP WITH A BETTER SOLUTION

Machine does not work. message on display says: MACHINE ERROR 41 What is that?


Very likely your print head is faulty. You can get it replaced or try the economical solution below.

I had the same problem after replacing the print head. I removed the ink cartridge and then unclip the two metal two clips by the side that hold the print head. Then I used WD40 to spray through the ink holes until the clear liquid comes out from the print head.Then I replaced everything back and start the cleanning process, do a few test prints. It works ok now, no more Machine Error 41. Therefore, sometime the problem might just be clogged pin heads!

Machine error 41


This is a mechanical problem with the printer head it will need to be repaired.

Try an authorized service center with the link below, sometimes its better to buy a new machine.

Why Am I getting the error 41 message?How can I fix it. Can I fix it myself?


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 is showing up on the screen. says to contact brother. It's a intellifax 1820c.

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!

Brother MFC 3220c machine error 41


I had the same problem with a Brother MFC3420C after replacing the print head with a new one the same error 41 occured 4 weeks later.

I finally fixed the problem (see photo's) and sent the parts back to Brother :-)

Don't buy Brother Inkjet technology its all ****!.

Their laser technology seems to be much more robust and reliable, have had a Brother HL-1440 since 2004 and its still running well.

Fax mach 1800c brother


Although you may not use the other colours the cleaning assembly cleans all the cartridges hence the other ink gets used. To trick the machine into thinking there is ink in the cartridge, place some black tape over the top of each cartridge facing front of the machine. This fools the sensor into seeing no reflected light and reads that there is ink in the cartridges you do not use. Pleas enote that if you do this on a long term basis it is liley the head will dry out and may damage the head - use this advise to get urgent prints out.

unfortanatly error 41 means that the printer head needs to be replaced. Got this from the horses mouth. I called the internnational tele # at 1-800-284-4329 and they told me you would need to take in the machine to have this repaired. You can look in your book for a # to find a servicer or go to http://www.brother.com Good Luck
