Is your printer showing up under My Printers on your computer? If not, reinstall the software and drivers for the printer.

Hi,

The Epson printer connected to your system requires drivers to function properly. Drivers link the Operating System and the printer, and issues with the drivers would directly affect the functioning of the printers. If the driver is not able to communicate with the printer, the Epson printer would show an offline message. All users having this problem are advised to check the printer drivers installed on the system using the device manager and if the drivers are found at fault, they would have to be replaced with suitable ones

Printing problems


offline means it cannot detect the presence of the printer, though virtually present, check the ff

1- cable are intact, USB or Parallel to PC
2- power line, light on the printer itself

if ok, then reset all queued jobs and restart the PC once again

dont forget to mark my suggestion pls

OFFLINE problem - unable to print


Hi,
if your printers saying Offline, it means that your printer is not connected/switched on or detected by the computer.
Try a hard reset or re-installation of the printer itself.
power on/off ( On the printer )while this error message appears.
Check the cable from Printer To Computer.

Printer not receiving jobs from computers in office..HELP!


what type of connector do you use? if its network printing then check ip address, cable, and the network card of the machine if it shows light, if its usb cable check the driver or cable.
note: make sure when you press the print buttom on the machine it doesnot show offline! if it shows offline you cannot print hit go or start to make it online.
if none of this work, reset the machine by hitting 1087 twice this will take you to maintenance mode then hit 906 then start, highlight the words that come on screen by your finger then hit start, the machine will ask you to put the main power on and off, do that and you will be fine.
Best Regards
