Printer offline wont print cant get back online


Hello,



Check the status of the printer at Control Panel. Set it to online if it's shown as offline. If this doesn't fix the problem, check whether installing the vista driver available at your printer manufacturer's website helps.

Step 1:
a. Click Start, go to Control Panel and select Hardware and Sound.
b. Click Printer.
c. If the Printer is offline, it shows "Offline" status. If the Printer is online it shows "Ready".
d. If the Printer is offline, set it to online.
e. Right-click on the printer and select "Use Printer Online".
f. The display should change to ready when the printer is set to online.

Step 2:
If still you are facing issues, then update the printer driver. This should fix the problem.

For further precise instructions, please let me know the Operating Systems installed on the Computer.

Hope this helps..

Dell1720 laser printer is offline and cant get it online


If you mean it shows "offline" in Windows, you can sometimes just uncheck that checkmark from the properties menu and it comes online. This happens if the printer experiences a problem. The computer has no way of knowing that you fixed the problem so you have to tell it that you fixed the problem.
If you are talking about the printer not being online (the actual hardware) you can try clicking on the "reset dell printer" icon in windows. You may need to download this utility from dell.com.

Dell Laser MFP 1815 wont print


The printer status showing offline is more then likely a computer issue then the printer. On the printer, use the menu to select "reports" and then select the printer settings report. If the printer prints the report, then the printer itself is working, and it is a communication issue between the printer and the computer. If you are connecting to the printer with a usb cable, then try moving the usb cable on the computer to another port. If this does not work, try deleting and reinstalling the printer.
