Machine Error 41 indicates a mechanical malfunction with FAX/DCP/MFC.
Often, unplugging the unit from the power source and then plugging it back in again can clear this error message.

    Sir,

    This is the part that needs to be replaced on the printer

    http://bopparts.com/index.asp?PageAction...



    The print head in the printer has gone bad. I would suggest, to check prices on new printers before investing money on this one. As prices of printers have dropped to a great extent and you can get a good deal



    Thanks

    Alternatively check with Brother Support in case there is some kind of extension of warranty for this problem on your printer model

I have a brother mfc4420c machine and everytime i turn it on it gives me a error code of 41 could you please tell me what this is thank you


Hi there
I found this on some other pages.

Error 41's can be caused by the carriage losing position, there is a timing fence (a plastic strip) which goes through the carriage assembly a light (opto) counts the extreemly fine black lines on the strip so the printer knows where the carriage is. This strip collects ink, dust etc. and will require cleaning. otherwise the printhead(carriage) loses its position throwing up a 41 error. You can clean this strip with isoproprol or just a bit of tissue and warm water, becareful you dont pull it off otherwise it can be a fiddly going on putting it back without taking the covers off. :o)
THE ERROR 41 INDICATES AN INCORRECT VOLTAGE COMMING FROM THE PRINTHEAD, THE PRINTHEAD WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED AND THE HEAD I.D. WILL NEED TO BE RESET, ALSO, BROTHER RECOMENDS THAT YOU CHANGE ALL OF THE INKS TO NEW INKS. THE RESETING OF THE HEAD I.D. CAN ONLY BE PREFORMED BY AN ATHORIZED BROTHER SERVICE CENTER. THIS REPAIR CAN NOT BE PREFORMED BY THE END USER. I HOPE THIS HELPS.

Brother MFC-3820CN error 41


Not good sorry

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 on Brother MFC


Dont bother checking anything. It needs a new print head and 4 new cartridges to prime it with. Call Brother and raise hell! there have a been a huge amount of these head failures! a new head costs around $100.00 but if you press brother will replace it. Including catridges it should come to around 150$

Error 41 on Brother DCP-4020C


Honest answer?
Give it a throw to the bin!

Error 41 means that the print head is defectiv. You have to change the ph, but this spare part is highly expensive: 
You are better up by buying a new dcp, which is cheaper than a single ph!

error 41: printhead ruined! No chance to fix it, has to be replaced. If machine still is in guarantee give it to a service dealer. DONT leave cartridges inside when you give it to service. When asked, tell them you had ALWAYS uesd original brother ink carts only :-)
