Hi;
Usually when a printer show offline it is either because windows does not recongnize the driver, or the printer is not set to be the default printer, I suggest you try reinstalling the driver first, and check printer settings to make sure the check is there for default printer. IF all else fails try going to control panel and printers icon and click, then click add printer choose the option add a network wireless or bluetooth printer. It should list your printer if not then click The printer i want was'nt listed, then click add printer by TCP/IP address or hostname, At this point you will need the IP address for the printer on the network you are trying to use. Enter the address then click enter, the system should find the printer on the network.

Error message says network printer off-line


Hi,

For turning on the offline mode, firstly you have to firstly click Start. You have to take the Control panel.

In that, you would select the option named 'Printers and Faxes' icon. When you click that it would open a window.

That window would show the list of printers which are being connected to the system.

Then, double-click the printer in which you have to change the mode. A pop-up window would then appear.

You would go to the printer in the menu bar of that pop-up window. Lastly uncheck the 'use Printer Offline'.

After performing that the printer would go into the online mode.

Printer Offline Message


Hi,

Go to system settings and select the 'Printer' option.

Right-click on the printer and enable the 'Use Printer Online' function.

Cancel all the printing jobs till that moment and redo the process.

Sometimes the 'Printer Offline' message occurs due to a 'Job Stuck' issue.

Check all network connections and functions.

Be sure the network interfaces work properly.

Turn the printer off and on to see whether the device is working properly.

Print status: error - offline what does this mean? I have a PSC 2355 all-in-one


Printer status offline means that, the printer driver and the application has been installed, but the printer and it spooler services are idle

To resolve this issue:

Goto control panel, click on printers and faxes, a window will open showing you all the printers you have or have had. The current printer will have a checked mark. Highlight it and right click, you will see printer offline in the box, click it. That will turn the printer online and you can print.

Dell 3100cn Printer


Hi Lillie,

No, the message for RAM disk has nothing to do with your issue. RAM disk is an option for that printer, but most users do not have that option, and if you accessed the menu for the 3100 on most of the machines in use you would receive that same error.

Although the printer itself shows " ready to print", this does not mean that your computer is communicating with the printer. In Fact, that message would show up even if you did not have it attached to any computer, as long as it was turned on and passed the self test.

More then likely the problem lies within the computer, NOT the printer.

To test the printers functionality, try printing a menu item, from the "reports" menu. Select either the printer settings, or the PCL Fonts report. When selected, the printer should print which ever report you selected.

One thing you may want to check is to see if there are any print jobs " locked up " in the print spooler on your computer, and also make sure that the printer is not set to "work offline".

To do this, open the control panel, go to your "printers" folder, then double click on your printer.
This will open up the printer information for that printer. If there are any jobs in the print queue, they will show up here.

if there are any print jobs stacked up, usually it is the top job that had a problem and is "stuck". This will prevent any job sent after that to be held, pending release of that one.

single click the top job and either restart the job, or delete it.

Also, make sure that the printer is not set to work offline by clicking on "printer" from the menu and ensure that work offline is not checked.

Good luck.

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.
