    My printer was completely erased from my computer; i went through the steps and reinstalled it, tried almost everything, but it won't print, it's like it's not even connected to my computer... I've tried all the USB ports, on the front and on the back of my computer, can't figure out what else could be wrong

Dell printer drivers try to 'phone home' with Ink usage stats .. even if you select 'no' when asked, they still try to access the Internet ..on install the driver modifies Microsoft Vista Firewall settings to permit this ...

So if you recently installed a non-Microsoft Firewall eg. ZomeAlarm your print driver will be denied access to the web and will refuse to print.

Note that 'deny' is different from 'time-out' ... to test turn off your wireless (or remove the ethernet cable) and ONLY THEN turn off your firewall - if it now starts printing you have your solution (go into Zone Alarm and Enable all Dell & MS print related software access to the Internet).

DO NOT browse the web with your Firewall turned off !!!!

My brand new Canon IP 100 pixma printer wont print cause it's saying "offline." I've turned it off and on numerous times. What can i do?


Hi, please follow this instruction to make your printer back to "online". Notice that i have used Epson Stylus Photo R230 as a model for the instruction, but this procedure also works with canon.
1. Please try to print a document. (word, excel etc.), 2. Now, if you already notice that your printer is "offline" by clicking the printers icon at the task bar.

The task bar can be found in the lower right part of your screen.

3. All you have to do is, Click on the "printer" tab 4. And then remove the check mark at "user printer offline" by clicking on it.

5. Once done, you will notice that the "use printer offline" will disappear and then let's you print the specified document again.
I hope this helps.

Printer is offline and will not print. Restarting does not help.


When you double click the Printer and Faxes icon in the Control Panel you will see the printer that your computer is currently using. See.... if the printer image is clear it is online and ready to use, if its blurred then its in offline mode and cannot be use.

To correct offline printer.. some possible reasons is on the usb cable.. check if there is no open wire along the cable...Inserting the USB connector on the other usb slot of the cpu sometimes work just wait first until it is read.

If the printer is still blurred and offline after checking the usb connection, the 2nd thing to do is check the properties of the printer if it is set to offline mode. how? Double click your printer icon. It will display the print jobs window. Click on the Printer tab and uncheck on the "Use printer Offline". Cancel all pending print jobs, close the printer window and try again to print.

Status on print job says offline dell m5200


a few questions:

-Do you know this printer IP?
-Can you ping this printer?
-How many printers do you have on your network?
-Did all the printers on your network offline or just this printer?
-Did you check the network cable that connected to your printer?

solution:
-you might try to restart printer spooling service on your print server
or
-If your server is still functional, you might try to reinstall/set up this printer on network

Offline problem...won't print


Unplug it and then re plug it in; I suggest USB connection over anything else; don't worry about self install if you already have done so in the past. In the print > hit properties on the icon for bubblejet > go to the ports tab > scroll all thw way to the bottom and click the "USB" checkbox. and you should be good.
