    I have a new Brother MFC-235C. I just installed the software (including drivers), and then plugged in the USB cable. It recognised Brother, etc, then complained that there was a problem (unspecified). It has remained offline since.

Try disabling the firewall, printing, re-enabling the firewall. My printer keeps working after re-enabling the firewall (at least for a while). Not ideal, but beats reinstalling 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

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.

My hp j4680 says offline, how do I get back on


If you are connected via USB cable, you will want to follow these steps.

1. Clear the print queue from the computer.
2. Shut down the computer.
3. Power off the printer.
4. Unplug the USB cable from both the computer and the printer.
5. Make sure there are no foreign objects in the printer.
6. Reconnect the USB cable.
7. Turn on the printer and the computer.

The "offline" message should now be cleared.
