Brother Intellifax 1800C
Keeps giving a machine error 41 message
I unplug and plug back up and it is OK for another couple faxes, then it goes back to giving the error message 41.

error 41 is a critical error with the print head of your machine, you can try unplugging it for a while then plugging it back in but if that doesn't work it will probably need a new head. If the power cycle doesn't work I would suggest buying a new machine
unplug all the connections and reconnect everything back.also checkout for any blocked paper or any paper jam.also remove and check out the cartridges from the printer and reinsert.either its the internal circuit failure error and has to be repaired to make it proper.
This is the only reference I could find on error 41:
How can I clear the message Machine Error 41 from the display? (ME41)

what you want to do is unplug for a couple of minutes while checking to make sure there is paper jammed anywhere in the machine, remove all your paper from supply as well. then time how long it take to warm up or the error code comes up.
Hi, Can you verify the error message to be 70? Error Codes for the 4100 starts at 71 as shown in the link below. http://tinyurl.com/yvcv35
It could be error 7D. You may try to remove the toner cartridge from the printer and slide the corona wire cleaner and put it back on. Do this with your fingers crossed. :-)
Error messages like these are not user serviceable. Another bet is to unplug the unit, wait a couple of minutes and plug it back again. If the error persists, professional service is required.
