Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My printer is not printing (not connecting with printer). I went to control panel - printer and it was showing that it was offline. I right clicked and turned it back on line. Now it is showing error where it used to say offline. I recentley used the copy feature on the printer. could I have accidently turned something off and now it won't communicate with the computer?

How do i get my printer from offline mode back to online mode


  • Make sure that the printer is powered on.

  • Pull up 'My Computer' then click on 'Control Panel'. From the Control Panel, click on 'Printers and Faxes'. You will then see a list of Printers connected to the PC.

  • Delete pending print jobs to make sure that the correct document will be printed later and for you not to waste paper. Double click on the printer that you want to use, and a window will appear showing you a list of pending print jobs. Simply click on 'Cancel All Documents' from the 'Printer Menu'.

  • After you have deleted all pending print jobs, right click again on the printer icon and choose 'Use Printer Online'.

  • Try printing a test file, if it doesn't work the first time, reboot the PC.

Hp deskje d2360 printer showing offline error


Hi,

The solution for an offline error of a printer is to check the proper connection of the printer.

Two options exist to turn off the offline mode.

If you choose the first option to change the offline state of the printer,

then go to Control Panel and then 'Printer and Faxes' option on the Control Panel.

Double-click on the printer you want to change to online mode from the displayed window.

A pop-up window will open and you need to select 'Uncheck Printer Offline' option from the menu bar.

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.

The printer will not print. it shows that it is offline. i went to the "services" menu and restarted the printer spooler and the printer went to ready but it wouldn't print and then went back to offline....


First thing to do here is to unplug the printer from the computer and restart the computer , then once the computer is already back that's the time you connect the printer back and lets see if the printer will be detected by the computer, if still not and printer is still showing offline, better go to control panel and gp to printers and faxes and click on add and follow the wizard to install a ewn printer that should correct the problem.....
