I had this same problem. What I did was I deleted the printer from the control panel. I then clicked on add a printer and it added the printer back. I printed a test page and it worked fine.

My printer is set up wirelessly on a D-Link router.

Printer is showing offline


If you right click on the printers icon, you can then select, ENABLE. That will put the printer online. Also ensure that the printer is turned on too.

My printer (MFC-440CN) keeps going offline. It's hooked via Ethernet cable to my home network. If I disconnect/reconnect the cable it comes online again but after I print it goes offline again. Thanks...


First, try printing while the printer is directly connected to the computer to see if you will get the same behavior from the printer.

If the printer works fine when directly connected to the computer, reconnect the printer via the Ethernet cable and try to perform the "ping of death" (continues ping of the IP Address of the printer).

Using the continues ping, you will see if the communication between the computer and the printer is being interrupted or not. Here's how to perform the ping of death:

DOS Prompt > ping 10.71.x.x -t > hit enter.

On the DOS prompt, you need to type ping and then hit the space bar, followed by the IP address of the printer > space bar > minus t (-t) > Enter.

____________________________________________________________

If the same problem occurs, then try to uninstall/reinstall the printer driver. If that did not help, try to clear the print spooler on your computer.

Good luck and have a great day!

After a power outage, my Brother printer,


First off, make sure that you have turned both the printer and the computer off and then turn them on(cycle the power). When you go to the printer in 'printers' be sure that the printer is not light in color, if it is, then it's failed to come back online or it's broken. When you say, 'I have tried going into the control panel and clicking on print offline', I take you to mean 'print online', because you don't want to print offline, you want it online...

The easiest way to solve this is to move the usb plug going into the computer from the printer from one port to another, this will force the computer to re recognize the printer. I see that this printer has network capability. I am assuming, that the printer is connected via USB and not Ethernet. [USB, rectangle the size of your pinky, but narrow, Ethernet looks like a big phone plug]. If you move the plug from one USB slot to another and you don't hear the hardware connect sound(low tone then high tone), then your printer may be broken. It is possible if it is broken that the Ethernet port still works, but using that is beyond this discussion.

Good luck,

Brett

Yes, an empty ink cartridge will prevent the printer from functioning.
Not all printers will do this, but the Brother MFC series will not print if any one of the cartridges are empty. Replace the cartridge and all should be fine.

My printer is "offline"


Try disabling the firewall, printing, re-enabling the firewall. My printer keeps working after re-enabling the firewall (at least for a while). Not ideal, but beats reinstalling the printer.
