My printer says offline and won't print


Is your printer turned on?
Connected to the computer?
Showing an error message on the printer?
Typically, your computer will set a printer offline when it can't talk to it, so we do the above testing first...
If your printer is indeed on, and it's connected to the computer, there are things to try:
change connection wire.
change which port it's connected to on the computer
test on another computer

Blinking error light


the printer driver converts computer speak to printer speak. The computer port, printer cable and printer port provide the connection, The printer gives status back to the computer.

SO, depending on what "recognize" means, the printer driver may be corrupt, or the wrong one. The printer connection might be bad, or the printer interface may be bad.

uninstall the printer, reset everything, reinstall a fresh printer driver and try again. If same, check or replace cable and connectors.

If same try connecting the same PC port to another device. If that works it is probably internal to the printer.

Printer not responding


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

Can I connect my printer to the uverse router USB port for sharin


If your using Windows operating system you can share your printer. That way you can keep your printer on one pc and when the other pc wants to print it will connect to your printer over your home network and print.
How to setup it in Windows XP
To share the printer, I opened the Printers and Faxes folder on the computer that was connected to my printer.
To open the Printers and Faxes folder
• Click Start and then click Control Panel.
• Click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Printers and Faxes.
• In the Printers and Faxes folder, I clicked the printer's icon and, in the tasks pane, I clicked Share This Printer.
• I opened the printer's Properties dialog box, and clicked on the Sharing tab.
• I clicked Share Name, and then clicked OK.
That's it—the printer was immediately available for other computers to use.
Now that I had a network printer, I was ready to connect to it and print from other computers on the network.
To connect to the printer
• I opened Control Panel, and clicked Printers and Other Hardware.
• I clicked Add a Printer.
• Instead of adding a local printer, though, I clicked Printer Connection and then browsed the network for the printer.
The whole process took less than a minute before I was printing to the network printer as though it was connected to the computer.

Printer/USB Cable Sharing


I suggest to create a network connection, for the printer.
First, connect the printer directly to one of the computer and then by the network connect the printer to the second computer. The second computer will not be able to scan, but it will be able to print.
