My printer says it is offline

To solve the problem, please see the following:

  • If the printer status is Offline:

    Check that the printer is online using the following steps:


    1. If the LCD screen is blank, then the Brother machine is not powerd on the machine to see if it wakes from sleep mode. If it does not, then verify that it is plugged into a working outlet and any power switches are turned to the ON position.
    2. Check the LCD screen for any error messages. An example would be "Paper Jam" or Ink/Toner Empty". If the LCD screen shows an error troubleshoot to clear the isssue indicated.


    NOTE : These steps or screens may differ depending on the operating system.
    1. For Windows® XP Users:
      Click Start => Printers and Faxes

      For Windows Vista® Users:
      Click Start => Control Panel => Hardware and Sound => Printers

      For Windows® 7 Users:
      Click Start => Devices and Printers

    2. For Windows® XP and Windows Vista® Users:
      Right click on the icon for your Brother machine and choose Use Printer Online.

      For Windows® 7 Users:
      Double click on the icon for your Brother machine => See what's printing => Printer => Use Printer Offline (Take the checkmark off.)

I have replaced my cartridges, how do I perform a nozzle check

Download the user guide from epson:
To do a print head clean do this:
Firstly note that this won't work if you have any error lights on.
Turn on the printer.
Press the Setup Mode (screwdriver) button to enter the Setup Mode.
Press the A (top left of the LCD Screen) or one of the Arrow buttons repeatedly until "Head Cleaning" (or Nozzle Check)
appears on the LCD screen, and then press the Color button.
Cleaning of the print head starts and "Head cleaning" appears on the LCD screen. After each clean
perform a nozzle check to confirm that the head is clean and to reset the cleaning cycle.
If the print quality has not improved after repeating this procedure four or five times, turn this
product off and leave it alone overnight. Then repeat head cleaning and nozzle checks if necessary.
If the print quality still has not improved, you may need a third party head cleaning fluid, just try googling for "inkjet head cleaning fluid".
To maintain the print quality, you should print a few pages at least once a month.
Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
