Try plugging it in directly. Sometimes the wifi printer has to be set up AFTER the hardwire setup. If you are desparate, plug it in directly to your computer to get your job done and figure out the wifi later.
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.
The printer should have a stop/cancel buttom on the panel, just press that and it sould cancel the print job.
Also, you can delete the job queue from the computer. You should have a printer in the Dock, click on that and select jobs and click on the delete button. If you don't have the printer on the Dock, click on Apple, System Preferences and select Printers. Select your printer and click on Open Queue and delete the jobs from there.
A software program responsible for managing all print jobs currently being sent to the computer printer or print server. The print spooler
program may allow a user to delete a print job being processed or
otherwise manage the print jobs currently waiting to be printed.
There is probably nothing wrong with the printer, but it may not be be receiving all the dope it needs. Usually the printer needs a CR/LF signal at the end of the file to print. If it doesn't get that it will assume that it hasn't got all the file and will hang. This may be a setting in the application producing the file, or a setting on the printer itself (i.e needing either a full CR/LF signal or just one of these). Don't like the idea that it doesn't print its own test page though....
I've had this problem with the Lexmarks's T640 printers connected via USB to Mac OS 10.5.5 machines.
Problem: The Mac OS' default resolution of 1200 DPI for this printer causes the printer to have to rasterize the print job again AFTER it arrives at the printer. The printer does a painfully slow job of this.
Solution: Change the default resolution of your print jobs to "600dpi".
1.)Call up the printer settings menu by starting a print job and clicking the up-arrow next to "Printer" box.
2.)Click on the drop-down list with the name of your application and choose "Printer Features". Change your resolution to "600dpi". Oddly, I find that "1200dpi Image Quality" is almost as fast.
3.)It might be a good idea to "Save as" this new configuration in the "Presets" menu at the top of your list.
You should notice a tenfold increase in the time it takes the printer to actually produce print jobs now.
Additionally, in the "Color Matching" settings (you can get there by changing from the "Printer Features" settings), be sure that you are using "ColorSync" so your printer isn't having to do any additional processing in that area.
I had a similar problem with my MF6540. I could access the remote UI and see that the printer was recieving information via the print log. It would list all of my test pages that I tried to print but in the print results column I would get an error code NG(##5536) and the printer would not actually print anything. I tried the UFRII driver stated above and everything seems to be working now.
