Question about HP Inkjet 1200dn Printer

1 Answer

Unfortunately that will not be possible...

,,,since the Printer is connected to my "offline" PC - that is my PC that does not have a modem or any Internet connection. (I am corresponding from my laptop and/or another PC.) Sorry about that, but I keep this one PC off the Internet since I work with and/or keep zillions of Wedding Pics (very important to my clients) on it.

    I have not installed the Printer Driver on this PC, but I did install it on my Laptop. I have tried cleaning and re-calibrating the Print Heads from the Laptop last night and got the same problem.

    Its as if the PC and the Printer don't correspond so well at this moment. (I installed the same Printer Driver, from the CD, on both the 'offline' PC and the Laptop.)

    Do you think the message that the Black and/or Yellow cartridge is empty is misleading?

    I replaced the Print Head not long ago (have done under 500 pages on the new Print Heads so far).

    When the Printer came back from the repair shop it actually printed so beautifully (albeit only for 2 or 3 pages).

    ok..for starters, I recommend you uninstall the old drivers and printer, then go here, get fresh drivers(the old cd is most likely out of date) and start anew.

My printer was working fine until having to reboot the wireless modem. Now says "Printer Offline'' and will not print.

I would try restarting the printer, as it is possible that the network address the printer has is now different than the modem

My canon mp620 is offline. My at&t modem is working and my computer is online - my computer detects the printer but is offline

The users who are experiencing offline errors while using the Canon printers are suggested to check the connections, settings and printer hardware before proceeding any further. The connection to and from the printer shall be verified thoroughly by the users and any anomalies if found shall be fixed then and there. As these errors can also be caused by printer hardware issues, the users are suggested to check with different key components of the printer like the cartridges, feed tray and more and fix any issues if found. Restarting the printer and the computer after following the above mentioned procedure will help in solving and preventing the offline errors with your canon printer.

Printer Offline and cannot get it back on

have you tried power off then on again, if yes, go to
START> PRINTER AND FAXES> right click your printer which is the brother mfc-490cw and uncheck USE PRINTER OFFLINE. when you right click your printer there, there shoul no check on the selection USE PRINTER OFFLINE. if that doesnt fix it still, check the usb cable or even try replacing it(the cable) or relocate to where is connected (usb port) on your pc.
a fine feedback would suffice

For my MFC, my PC says its ready and working properly. It really only works when I'm not connected to my cable modem. All PCs use it then. It's offline otherwise.

Brother mfc 665cw connection error

I have a MFC665CW connected wirelessly to a router and a pc connected by ethernet to the router, with a broadband satellite receiver connected to the WAN port of the router (plan to add another PC to the network soon, so have set up the network in advance). I had trouble with the brother status montior flashing 'Ready' then 'Offline' all the time, when I knew the printer was always connected to the network. I had set up the DHCP stuff on the router to allocate IP addresses to everything that connects to the network, like you are supposed to. I updated drivers and firmware, but the problem continued.
When I checked the router status log I saw that one MAC address in the network was making a DHCP request every 5 minutes (i.e. it was asking the router to allocate it an IP address at regular intervals). Every time the router answered that request it made the Brother status monitor go 'offline'. The MAC address was my broadband modem. I fixed the issue by setting the router to allocate a static IP address to the MAC id for my broadband modem (in the DHCP setup section in the router's admin interface). That stopped the dynamic IP address requests from the broadband modem and the Brother status monitor works fine now. I also set static IP adresses for the printer and PC to be on the safe side, although I don't think that matters.
So, check your network log and look for a MAC id that makes regular DHCP requests and then set a static IP address for it. Hope this helps you guys too.
