Brother zx-30 typewriter check printer error on lcd screen on powerup, don't know what to do to fix it, do not have a user guide.

Remove the P/W, look for bent or broken spokes, try it without the ribbon and correction tape, look for debris in the carrier area.

When I turn it on I get a constant beeep noise

Check the cable harness that flexes as the carriage moves left to right, on older models the wires could sometimes might be as many as 2 or three of them broken.
Soldering back together is only a temporary fix as the soldered joint WILL break again due to the flexing action.
Only sure repair is to replace the complete carriage assbly with harness,
but its cheaper than buying a new machine.

All of a sudden, the typewriter quit typing.

The plastic cap on the print solenoid is probably broken, they are available but a little tricky to install.

The "Carriage Lift Gear" is either broken or out of sync. This is quite common problem. Unfortunately this is not something that someone without training can fix. I just to do this repair in 30 minutes but of course the owner charger for a full hour.
