brother printer DCP-7030 not printing any more


Hi!

A few months ago I installed for a friend the printer Brother DCP-7030 on LinuxMint (Helena) Kernel 2.6.31-22-generic.

Everything went well but since a week my friend can't print any more.
If you give a print order, the print job goes to the queue and then dissapears as if the print job was printed but nothing happened.
There are no error messages.

I tried to find errors in log files but I don't find them.
I don't think it's a hardware issue because I can still scan.

Kind regards for any help.

Problem is solved

I was able to solve the problem.

I went to the page http://localhost:631/admin

Apparently the selected driver was "Brother DCP-7025 BR-Script3".
In the list I changed the selection to "Brother DCP7030 for CUPS".
After that I could print again.
