First, you will need to check a few things before you start with the solution. Since sometimes due to some small issues, your printer may go into an error state. Therefore, if you check and find that small issue, you will be able to fix that error, and because of this, your printer will also get out of the error state.

Check Below Things Before-

1. The first step while having a brother printer in error state issue is to restore your system. You can check some videos or manuals for it.

2. Ensure that your printing sheets are not stuck inside your printer.

3. Often the printer error is occurring due to low internet speed, poor network, or when Wi-Fi is not connected.

4. Unplug all the power supply and USB.

5. If still your brother printer in an error state, uninstall your printer drivers and re-install them.

6. You can also fix your brother's printer by running a troubleshooter check, if there is a bug it will detect and fix it.

7. After trying all the above solutions if still, your brother printer is in an error state, we suggest you delete and reinstall the printer software.


Check Hardware:

First, make sure that your printer is connected well with the power switch. Then ensure that it is connected well with the computer and Wi-Fi.


1. If you are using a wired or Ethernet LAN cable to access the internet in your printer, then make sure the connection is firm.

2. However, if your printer is connected wirelessly then, disconnect it and then again start the process to connect it with the router.

3. Turn off your printer completely then turn it on and see if the error is coming or not.


The error state issue can also come because of the Parallel Port Settings when you update your Windows version. Therefore, to change the settings, follow the below-mentioned steps:

1. First, go to the device manager

2. Now locate the parallel port option

3. Double-click on it to open the properties sheet

4. Click on the Port Settings tab

5. Select “Use any interrupt assigned to the port”

6. Now finally, click OK to proceed with the changes.


It is also recommended by the printer experts that you should check for any virus or malware attack in your system. For this, you should run Anti-virus software to catch the virus and see which part it has affected. After the complete scan, the software will show you the results and attempt in solving this error.


Printer Spooler also has an important role in the printing task; therefore, you should always keep it in a good state and in a running state.

1. Press Windows + R key together

2. In the command box type, services.msc, and press enter.

3. Scroll down and double-click on the service called Printer Spooler.

4. Make sure the services are started and set to Automatic.

5. If not, then change the settings.

6. Click on the Recovery tab and change the first failure to ‘Restart the service’.

7. Click on Apply and check if your printer is out of the error state or not.

If the error is still, then only one option left that is- reinstall the printer drivers.


1. If you see that nothing is working in front of the brother printer error state problem, the last thing you should do it- uninstall the previous printers and reinstall them again.

2. Go to the Control Panel and locate the setup file, then uninstall the drivers from there. Now go to the Downloads folder, double-click on the Printer setup icon, and Run the file. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation process.


1. Ensure Printer to PC connectivity, when the printer is error state appears on your Mac.

2. Check whether your PC and printer are connected to the same wireless network. If you have a UBS connectivity printer, then check whether you have connected them right.

3. Switch off your printer, unplug it from the power supply and USB wires, wait for a minute and then switch it on and connect it to your Mac book.

4. Reboot the PC and wait for it to turn inactive. When it restarts, click on the Apple icon, and choose System Preferences, now in the display screen select Printers and Scanners to open the list of printers installed on Mac. If your printer doesn’t show on the screen, then it is the reason that the printer is showing your brother printer in the error state. Now you need to install your printers’ drivers.

5. If your Mac is showing so many printers' names in the list, remove the unwanted entries and keep the only one.
