SOURCE: printer status says offline, and we can not print on laptop

Hi!
If you're offline with the printer, you definitely won't be able to print.

I'm assuming you're using Windows XP here. Most Windows products will be similar...

On the laptop, click on the Start button, then Settings, then Printers and Faxes. Find your printer in the list, right-click on it and click "Use Online" or uncheck the "Offline" box.

Good luck! Remember to rate the solutions!

Why the offline message


Hi,
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.

Printer indicates offline. i cannot locate ready status button.


Assuming that you have Windows operating system.

You need to go to control panel in your computer and under control panel you will see harware and networking ( if its windows 7) Printers and other hardware ( Windows XP) and once you go there you will see icon of your printer right click on it and you will get an option to set your printer online.

If it does not work that means there is some problem in the connectivity of computer and printer.

My printer says it is offline but the status monitor at the bottom of the screen says its ready... but will not print.. whats going on?


I've been suffering the same problem, but I think I havefound a solution. I have a MFC9320CW. It was showing 'ready' on the computer,but 'offline' on the Status Monitor.

My printer is set up to go to sleep after 5mins. I thought this was a problem,as initially it looked like it was in a coma, but it turns out it's ok.

I installed the software on my desktop (windows7) and after a bit of time thestatus monitor turned from offline to sleep. From here you can go into the(CC3) ControlCentre3 ->Device settings -> Remote setup and enter thepassword = access. Please note if the status monitor is showing offline youwill get an error message. A new window opens up. I went down to -> WLAN-> TCP/IP and then I changed the IP address, subnet mask and IP gatewaysettings, I also changed IPv6 to enabled. I applied these settings and then theprinter appeared to work as I expected it to.

I got the IP address etc from the printout I got when I initially set up theprinter.

I've been able to scan through the CC3 at my desktop; from the printer and thescan has gone to the desktop; and also from Adobe Acrobat8 at my desktop. I then set up a laptop (vista), first off I uninstalled allthe Brother software I had put on it as I'd managed to put the software onseveral times. When I installed the new software I chose the option MFL-Prowithout paperport11. When the status monitor opened and it was in the sleepmode I went to the CC3 -> Device settings -> WLAN and found all thesettings had been adjusted to those I had set for the printer at the desktop. I've now gone through installing it on a second laptop (XP).Again uninstalled previous attempts, then reinstalled MFL-Pro without paperport11 and this too is now working. So, if need be uninstall then install the software again.When you get the status monitor showing sleep/ready go into the ControlCentre3,change the settings as above, then all should be well. Since changing these settings the status monitor hasn't yetgone back to offline. I'd struggled for days before I got it sorted; the onlinehelp hadn't been much help. I hope this helps.

I have an HP Photosmart C7280 Printer wireless connected. The Pause Printer and Use Printer Offline are always checked on. How do I change the default status on these 2 items to default off. Whenever I...


To change the default printer settings or to restore the settings in your printer, click on the start menu, select Settings, and then select "Printers" from the menu that appears. After that you could right-click the printer that you would like to change settings for, and then select "Properties" from the menu that appears. This would open up a tabbed window that would display many settings that you can change. You could change the settings you need to change or there is another option that you would find to restore to defaults, this would allow you to set the default settings on your printer.

Printer Offline Message


Hi,

Go to system settings and select the 'Printer' option.

Right-click on the printer and enable the 'Use Printer Online' function.

Cancel all the printing jobs till that moment and redo the process.

Sometimes the 'Printer Offline' message occurs due to a 'Job Stuck' issue.

Check all network connections and functions.

Be sure the network interfaces work properly.

Turn the printer off and on to see whether the device is working properly.

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

Brother mfc 665cw connection error


I have a MFC665CW connected wirelessly to a router and a pc connected by ethernet to the router, with a broadband satellite receiver connected to the WAN port of the router (plan to add another PC to the network soon, so have set up the network in advance). I had trouble with the brother status montior flashing 'Ready' then 'Offline' all the time, when I knew the printer was always connected to the network. I had set up the DHCP stuff on the router to allocate IP addresses to everything that connects to the network, like you are supposed to. I updated drivers and firmware, but the problem continued.
When I checked the router status log I saw that one MAC address in the network was making a DHCP request every 5 minutes (i.e. it was asking the router to allocate it an IP address at regular intervals). Every time the router answered that request it made the Brother status monitor go 'offline'. The MAC address was my broadband modem. I fixed the issue by setting the router to allocate a static IP address to the MAC id for my broadband modem (in the DHCP setup section in the router's admin interface). That stopped the dynamic IP address requests from the broadband modem and the Brother status monitor works fine now. I also set static IP adresses for the printer and PC to be on the safe side, although I don't think that matters.
So, check your network log and look for a MAC id that makes regular DHCP requests and then set a static IP address for it. Hope this helps you guys too.
