"Offline" means there is no signal from the PC to the printer. Check the following:

1. The printer is not in "Sleep Mode",
2. It's ON,
3. The cable is attached to both the printer and the PC.

4. Go to the Printer Config in Control Panel, right click on your printes' icon and remove the tick/checkmark from "Offilne".

Printer offline wont print cant get back online


Hello,



Check the status of the printer at Control Panel. Set it to online if it's shown as offline. If this doesn't fix the problem, check whether installing the vista driver available at your printer manufacturer's website helps.

Step 1:
a. Click Start, go to Control Panel and select Hardware and Sound.
b. Click Printer.
c. If the Printer is offline, it shows "Offline" status. If the Printer is online it shows "Ready".
d. If the Printer is offline, set it to online.
e. Right-click on the printer and select "Use Printer Online".
f. The display should change to ready when the printer is set to online.

Step 2:
If still you are facing issues, then update the printer driver. This should fix the problem.

For further precise instructions, please let me know the Operating Systems installed on the Computer.

Hope this helps..

The Brother MFC-7840W printer was installed on a USB connection. The printer worked the previous week albeit not for all applications but at least for the Vista word program. Now it doesn't respond to...


Hi there!
You can check if the usb cable is connected directly & securely from printer to your computer. Once it's verified. The display of your printer should show the date/time.
Since the printer is displaying offline you can open Control Panel, go to Printers folder right click on the printer icon and select 'Use printer online' If you have pending documents right click on the printer icon and click on cancel documents.
Try checking for a duplicate copy of your printer driver or check which printer driver is selected as the default and has the status ready.
Right click on the printer driver that has a Ready status click on printing preferences and click on print a test page.
Hope this helps! Vikroks

I checked everything, the printer is connected, there's ink, everything is good, but it says it's offline. I clicked "Use printer online", but it's still offline. I tried Refresh, and it's still...


The first thing I would check is the cable. If you're using a USB connection, try a different (and known to be good) USB cable. If that doesn't do it, you may have a damaged USB connection socket at the printer, which is not cost effective to repair.

Hope that's helpful.

a few questions:

-Do you know this printer IP?

-Did all the printers on your network offline or just this printer?
-Did you check the network cable that connected to your printer?

solution:

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

The problem is that your print and your computer are not communicating.
Try to print a test page.

This could be a hardware conflict:
right click on my computer
select properties
select hardware
then select device manager
There should be no ! or ?
If there is not an error sign then try to reinstall the drivers again under safe mode.
If there is an error see below
If there is then you have a conflict or other problem with that device
double click the device and see what the device status says.
if it is a resource conflict (sounds like it is) then click the resources tab and at the bottom you will see a conflict device list.
You should be able to adjust your resource allocations from this same window. Do this by deselecting use auto settings and click change settings. You will be able to adjust up and down to find a resource location to use. Like telling the comp where in memory to put the info you don't want it going to the same place as another device is.

Photosmart 2575 printer is offline - won't print


Good Day,

One thing you can try instead of deleting the doucment writer is to change the default printer. You can do this by right-clicking on the HP printer icon and selecting "set as default" from the drop down box. Also try turning the printer off and back on aswell as restaring the computer if you have'nt already. Did that printer ever work from that computer? How is it wired, by "switcher" do you mean a shared printer through you network(was printer sharing configured properly), or an A-B printer switch. Please clarify

Hope this helps for now
