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.

Brother Printer In 'Ready' Status But Not Printing

  • Firstly check if the printer status is ready. If not, put it on ready.
  • Now check if you have too many printing requests. To check that, just simply hover your mouse’s cursor over the Brother Printer icon. You will see many options like Offline, Paused, Use Printer – depending on the status.
  • See if there are any documents in the queue. If there are, right-click on the Brother Printer and then cancel all the tasks.
  • Incase you see brother printer status is offline, then right-click on the printer icon and simply uncheck ‘Use Printer Offline menu’ and Click on the ‘Use Printer Online option’. This will bring the printer online.
