Keeps telling me the printer is offline


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.

Step 2:
If still you are facing issues, then update the printer driver. This should fix the problem.

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.

I checked everything, the printer is connected, there's ink, everything is good, but it says it's offline. I clicked "Use printer online", but it's still offline. I tried Refresh, and it's still...


The first thing I would check is the cable. If you're using a USB connection, try a different (and known to be good) USB cable. If that doesn't do it, you may have a damaged USB connection socket at the printer, which is not cost effective to repair.

Hope that's helpful.

    Printer is offline


    Hello,
    If you open your "printer's and faxes" folder you can right click on the printer and select "use printer online". Another thing that you want to do is make sure that the printer is ready and no alarm lights or messages are showing.

    I hope you find this information helpful.
