Question about Brother MFC 5100c InkJet Printer

3 Answers

My son gave me his older model Brothers MFC-5100C when he purchased a new one. I do not know how to download it as I do not have the cd or the cable cord. He is looking for the cable cord but has no idea where the cd went unless it is also in his storage. Could you please help me. Thank you Loris Keeler

FIRST DISCONNECT PRINTER FROM PC USB (this is important)

Then click on this link here.
Select 'drivers' option in first box , then your OS version (eg windows xp), and language.
download driver software.
Doubleclick on downloaded software and then install.
Connect the printer to usb only after installing software, or when required.

I have an older machine: model MFC 9700. It has stopped receiving faxes and is showing an error message 71. Says to unplug and call Brother. Is this worth repairing? or smarter to invest in new...

Thats up to you. request a repair cost and compair it to the cost for a new one. Your choice mfc 9700 is a good unit. Upgrade to a MFC 4100n its one of the best brothers makes. Hope this helps.

It says machine error 41 on my brother MFC 5100C machine

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!

After printing a page or 2 of data printer gets error message 41 with instructions to unplug machine and call brothers support


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

I change replace all ink in my brother mfc-5100c after that I receive this message: "Machine error 41, unplug the machine call brother". Please,What can I do to fix it? I rely on you for any assitance.

Machine Error 41means the printhead is bad. It's a fairly easy repair on that model, but an expensive part and requires replacing all four ink cartridges at the same time. New machines are so much smaller and cheaper that it may not be worth it. There are also some setting that must be changed in Service Mode to match the machine to the characteristics of the new head.
If you're still interested, look for Brother part number LK0935001.
