If your computer is USB connected make sure that the cable is connected and that the printer is powered up. If you are connected to the printer over your network through wifi or ethernet, make sure that each device (computer and printer) is connected.
If all of these are in order and the printer still shows offline, try re-installing the software that came with the printer. Sometimes the software needs to be re-installed due to corrupted files.

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 offline


Depends on your OS you need find "printer and faxes" or "printer options on the hardware.

  • Open the Start menu and click on the "Devices and Printers" icon. This will open a window with a list of the printers currently set up on your computer.


  • Double-click on the icon of the printer you want to change to online. The status of the printer will be shown as either "Printer: Ready" or "Printer: Offline."


  • Click on "Printer: Offline" and the Printer menu will appear. Click on "Printer" in the menu bar and uncheck "Use Printer Offline." This action will change the printer from offline to online.

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.

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.

Print status: error - offline what does this mean? I have a PSC 2355 all-in-one


Printer status offline means that, the printer driver and the application has been installed, but the printer and it spooler services are idle

To resolve this issue:

Goto control panel, click on printers and faxes, a window will open showing you all the printers you have or have had. The current printer will have a checked mark. Highlight it and right click, you will see printer offline in the box, click it. That will turn the printer online and you can print.

Hp deskjet 6980 will not change to online. Working wirelessly. It says Offline and can't be changed to Online. I have to reinstall everytime.


Right click printer properties and select online. Start /settings /printers. Offline can also indicate a connection is not available - this occurs with demo versions of printer software. When the demo expires, the printer goes offline. The fix is to just use windows networking and shared printer.
