SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: printer is offline
Most people connect this printer wireless and have issues, so I'll assume you are connected wireless.
First, we will have to make sure the printer is properly connected to the network
If your IP address is not a valid one (all zeroes) or is an APIPA address (starting with 169.254.#.#) you will need to run the wireless setup wizard again as the machine is not properly connected wireless
If you had a valid IP address before changing anything, it means that the printer offline is caused by the computer not being able to locate the printer.
This is usually caused by the printers IP address changing.
Changing the boot method to static will make sure the IP address on the printer does not change.
Now we will have to make sure the computer knows where to find the printer.
On your computer, go to your start menuè control panelè printer
Here you should see your brother printer. Right click on the printer and select “properties” (If you are running windows Vista, make sure select “run as administrator” and then properties)
Go to the “ports” tab
Select “add Port…” and then double click on “standard tcp/ip port”.
This will bring you to the add port wizard, click next.
In the field for “Printer name or IP address” enter in the new IP address of your printer and then press next and finally “finished”.
Make sure to apply the changes.
You should now be able to print.

If you go to Start, control panel, printers and then right click on your Epson printer and click on the "use printer online" option. Other than that, check the USB lead is in securely at both ends or perhaps download the latest driver suitable for your operating system along with the Epson status monitor for further information as to what the problem might be.
