Machine Error 41 Brother 3100c

I called Brother to get an idea of how much a printhead was going for nowadays, and they said they DO NOT sell them. It's not a coincidence that many other people start experiencing this "Error 41" code between the 12 to 24 month period after purchase. by unknown on Sep 20, 2005 at 4:46am Add comment Please sign in to comment 0 (SINGAPORE) I also have the same error 41 after owning the Brother MFC 3420C for by unknown on Dec 16, 2004 at 6:19am Add comment Please sign in to comment bnski: did you ever put the new printhead in and if so, does it work ok? Check This Out

the only reason for this in the 1st place-is the obvious-declining health. I'll wait 1-2 days before replacing it. However, ur error 41 will probably recur b4 then. To blame it on non original product is an excuse for Brother for their inferior machine and a ploy to get you to buy only their consumables, after all this is More Bonuses

As I type, I am soaking the print head of one unit in a solution of alcohol and acetone. Dec 27, 2008 | Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer 1 Answer Brother MFC 3100 Printer/fax This is the only reference I could find on error 41: How can I clear Using the cleaning feature wastes my time.

My question for all of you is, what brand of multi-function printer do you recommend? Please call our toll free customer service support line at 1-800 284-4329 M-F to verify if your machine is within the warranty period. I turned it off and I'm going to contact Brother on Monday. I assume you guys are in the US and these are $US prices.

If you get "unable to print" on a 420CN, 210C, 5440CN, 620CN it's the same crap again! I probably haven't used it enough to get the 41. The most use this system has ever gotten in its 2 years is printing out my tax return so it's far from being used as a workhorse. the first one wanted $95 for labor, the second one $75.

I suspect it would be a nightmare.

Clearly a machine of this nature is marketed toward small businesses, being a 5 in 1 and all. Also the use of 3rd party or generic refill kits does not void your warranty. I know everyone at the shop, and they expect my visit. this contact form If cleaning can solve this porblem, I'll post a notice.
