Written on: 10/08/2009

The Brother Colour 1820C is Great when it goes but - can anyone tell me how to fix it when Error 41 comes up please? And, what exactly is error 41? Can't phone them as it costs $3.95 a minute to speak to anyone there and I refuse to pay for what should be customer service! . May have to chuck the machine (hardly used) and buy another brand… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/08/2008 by guymark (2 reviews written)

Brother Multifunction machines are cheap - because they must make huge amounts on the ink.

If you absolutely must buy this machine - use cheapo ink as I don't think using their own ink makes the slightest jot of difference when you get the famous Error 41 (Print head dead - though it works just fine in test mode!)

For inkjet, stick with Epson or HP, for lasers, Brother are not too bad - but mine seems clunky and noisy - and only seem to get part-filled toner carts when you buy them new - unlike… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/06/2008 by bbrn (1 review written)

The newer machines are nice. I like the 1820c the best. I mainly send and receive black and white copies. I like the option of color if I want to copy photos. I print the photo from my computer and make additional copies on my fax machine. This is a replacement machine. The other exact model had a major failure about five years ago and it was replaced by Brother. I had the other unit for 1 1/2 years before it died. I upgraded to a fax/scanner with no telephone receiver at my office, and… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/01/2008

I find that the Brother Colour 1820C consumes vast quantities of ink due to a clean cycle brother have installed.

With the machine being barely 2 years old, error 41 has appeared on the screen requiring technical assistance which costs more for an engineer to come out than the machine itself. I would advise you to avoid this fax machine like the plague… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/04/2007 by charlie77 (1 review written)

It eats expensive ink - Brother has set this up so that it uses ink all the time on the unnecessary cleaning cycle. What a brilliant money making wheeze for them. Run a mile from the Brother Colour 1820C fax machine, as it is an absolute money pit… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/05/2007

I purchased a Brother Fax Machine 1820C and have had nothing but TROUBLE with it. It is always on the blink displaying an error 41 message or it constantly is malfunctioning in some sort of way. I've had it serviced by Brother TWICE within the last 5 months and it STILL performs like a piece of garbage. Ironically, that when it did work occasionally, it copied and faxed very well. However, it worked only when it felt like it. I STRONGLY urge all consumers to not purchase Brother Fax Machine. If you do not want to get aggravated and waste time, stay away from them.
