One of the most frequent error messages for Brother printers is Error 30 or error printing on brother printer. The error codes 30 and "Unable To Print" signify that the printer cannot print because of a mechanical problem. This error could also be caused by an object stuck in your printers, such as a paper clip or piece of paper.
If your Brother printer stops printing or displays the message "Unable To Print 30", the following steps can be used to fix the problem: Lift the scanner cover with both your hands and look to the left side for the support arm.
Check both the right and left corners and take out any paper scraps or clips that may be jammed in the printer. Turn the printer upside down and remove any jammed paper. After all, objects have been removed from the printer, close the covers to resume printing.

Set your Brother printer as the default device
Your computer tends to use the default printer every time you print. Therefore, you should set your Brother printer as the default device to undertake all the print jobs. Here’s how:

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time to invoke the Run command.

2) Type control in the field and click OK.

3) Select Small icons from the drop-down menu next to View by. Then, click Devices and Printers.

4) Right-click your Brother printer and click Set as default printer.
