I thought I was being clever last year when I bought an all singing, all dancing new printer (mentioned it in my digital teachers blog) from Brother. I was beaming at my smartness.
Not any more - the thing is only good enough to be used as a doorstop now. You see, I get a message on the small LCD screen that says (wait for it...) ERROR 41 (all brother printer owners are now cringing into the monitors).
Yes, the famous and annoying Error 41 message has struck me and my machine is just out of its warranty period, so I'm up sh*t creek without a paddle.
I wasn't sure what the Error 41 message was, until I googled it, and then sat in horror as I read report after report on how so many other people had been affected by it.
So, my advice to you - DON'T BUY A BROTHER PRINTER!!! Ignore their website advice of "Turn off and plug back in". It doesn't solve it. It won't make it work. Just go get another printer from a more reliable firm.
