The printer status showing offline is more then likely a computer issue then the printer. On the printer, use the menu to select "reports" and then select the printer settings report. If the printer prints the report, then the printer itself is working, and it is a communication issue between the printer and the computer. If you are connecting to the printer with a usb cable, then try moving the usb cable on the computer to another port. If this does not work, try deleting and reinstalling the printer.

An alternate fix would be to go to the Printers and Faxes window, locate the icon that represents the 1815 printer, right click it and select "Use Printer Online".

    I have the same problem with the same printer and It is not connected with a USB cable. I right clicked the printer as dulvaryenai suggested, but there is no "Use Printer Online: option. nothing even close to it. Please help!

    How do you have it connected and what operating system does the computer have that you are attaching it to, trying to print from?

hi

i suggest you reinstall the drivers on the computer(s) which will use the Dell 1700n printer.


let me know if this helps

if you need the drivers go to this link all you have to do is select the operating system (go to My Computer, right click and properties, will give you the OS)

Printer is on but will not print. Brother HL-2140 laser printer. The print log status reads = Error - Sent to printer.


Hello ,

First, please make sure there is no error message displayed on the LCD screen of the printer

Now we will check the status of your printer in the printers menu in the control panel.
The printer’s status should be set to “ready”
If the printer is “paused” simply clear the print queue, right click on the printer and select “resume printing”.

If the printer says “offline”, follow these steps.
  1. Clear the printer queue
  2. Shut down the computer
  3. Unplug the USB cable from your computer and your printer
  4. Unplug the power cable from the printer and wait 15 seconds
  5. Plug the USB cable back into the printer and the computer.
  6. Plug the printer’s power cable back in.
  7. Turn your computer back on.

Your printer status should be back to ready now and you are able to print.

Thanks,

Pat

MFP 1815 D Unlock Scanner message


Inside the print tray (where the paper comes out) on the upper right there is a blue lever. Pull it toward you and that will unlock the scanner. I just did this and restarted my printer and it worked! Hope this helps!

Dell laser mfp 1815 dn "scanner locked" message


When you lift the scanner lid look to the left bottom. you should see a green slider button. If you stick your hand in the output tray and get it rigth under the green slider you will find a lever. Move that thing backwards or forwards, that is your unlocker.

or
-If your server is still functional, you might try to reinstall/set up this printer on network
