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

Hello ,

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

  1. Go to your printer.
  2. Press “menu” and scroll down to network, then WLAN
  3. Go to TCP/IP
  4. Go to IP address. Make sure there is an IP address here (not 000.000.000.000). Change the last 3 digits to “050”
  5. Change the boot method to “static”

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.

Thank you,

SOURCE: my printer keeps saying offline

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.

HP Deskjet 6980 won't print. Says offline but i don't see how to turn it back online. was working. now not.


Printers often go off line for no reason. It can be genuinely off line or the pc is just not seeing the printer anymore To put it back on line all you need to do is open the print queue (double click on the printers icon in printers devices/ printer and faxes) go to File and in the drop down list it will say "Use printer Offline or Use printer online. click on it and if the pc is seeing the printer if will change and the printer will then start up and print. If this does not work then check your cable to the printer or your network connection to reestablish the connection.
