Question about Samsung ML 2010 Laser Printer
I have installed the drivers correctly on the computer (and re-installed them again and again just in case) But whenever I press print, the printer just sorta flashes a bit and seems to think about it, then goes to offline status

I encountered the same problem. I have several computeres at my home. While others print well, one computer (WinXP) could not. The error message tells me to plug the printer into network, but since other computers print well, this is certainly a mis-leading. I guessed it should be a firewall issue.
I then called Samsung at 1-800-samsung, but the guy over there only keeped saying this was not their printer problem, and I had to contact my firewall software provider and they will walk me through what ports are using the printer. This was not useful at all.
I use ZoneLab as my firewall tool and I then compared the Firewall Program control parts of two computers, where one works and another one doesn't in printing. When I enabled both 'SPanel' and 'Spooler Subsystem' for trusted network, it printed!
I hope this solution is helpful to someone who has the same problem by the same or similar reason.

Have you tried going on to samsung website and seeing if you can download the driver there. Failing that google samsung 2010 printer driver and it may give you other places to download from..... I have a scanner but no driver and this is how i solved my problem :0)

Do you mean it says "offline" under the printer icon in your PC's printer dialog box?
Right click it , then select "use printer online".
Please let me know
