It probably changed its IP address. Try uninstalling its driver and re installing it. Some smart drivers automatically detects their printers once connected on a router.
Also check connection from device manager .....

SOURCE: I have a Lexmark Prevail P705 wireless all-in-one

You have free tech support with Lexmark for this printer. You might try contacting them. Secondarily, you could try resetting the factory defaults from the front screen of the printer, and removing the power block (the power cord is connected to it) then reinserting it.

You can access driver downloads directly at the Lexmark support site. I know that during my setup of a P705 that it would not automatically download the updates.

My Canon MP250 says it is offline- but there is no option of resuming the printer in the system preferences (MacBook Pro)- What other solution(s) could there be? I've tried restarting both devices


Go to System Preferences > Hardware > Print & Scan > click on add printer or scanner. Now let the OS search for printer under Default tab.
If it finds your MP250, great. Proceed with adding and delete the old MP250 printer in the list.

Printers says it is offline


hi,
Being 'offline' means there is no communication between the printer and your PC.
To change it to 'online' try the following:
  • On the start menu,go to printers and faxes and check out installed printers.
  • Double click on your printer and a window pops up.On this window go to printer on the menu bar and uncheck 'use printer offline'. Try printing now.
  • Still offline?
  • Uninstall the printer[make sure you have installation disk]
  • Unplug the printer from power and your pc too.
  • Plug them back after a few minutes and start installation afresh.
  • After installation restart your pc.
  • Now print!
Worked for me,hope it works for you!
THANK YOU!

Hi,
Click Start go to Printer & Faxes:
- Check that your printer name is there or not.(if not, your printer is connected to computer but the driver is not installed. Find the driver disk and install driver)

- Make sure Printer is online( if not, it shows "offline" word under the printer name)
Try these if still not printing:
- Restart your computer.
- Turn off your printer completely, unplug power suppy, wait for 15 seconds and turn on again.

Hope this will help. Thanks for reading

Use Print Flush 1.3 to fix it:

Fix your printer with this small utility!

Has your printer quit working? Did you try to cancel a job and it broke the printer completely? I always do that. And the method to fix it usually involves rebooting, restarting the print spooler, trashing junk print files, and sometimes even more. Not anymore.


Print Flush has a simple function: clean the print spool. If your printer's driver is incorrectly installed, Print Flush cannot help you. If you have used your printer before and it worked fine then, but it doesn't now, Print Flush can probably help you.

It also works with Vista.

  1. Save somewhere where you can find it.
  2. If you downloaded the zipped version... Unzip the file to the desktop or something
  3. Double-click the file
  4. Try printing again!

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

I assume you fellow the steps in the manual and install everything correctly. We had the same problem on our hp printer. Sometimes, if you install Windows/software updates, it will put your printer offline. The problem will disappear once I restart my computer.
