1. Try to print from local system if it does not then reinstall printer driver. check catridges.
2. Now right click on the printer using sharing options, share it again.
3. On the other computers using network icon, browse the printer connected system. Explore the system till you see the shared printer and double click it. It will take 2 to 5 Minutes and then your printer is network connected.
4. Now remove the old printer icons. And check printing using the new one.

Idle printer status


If your computer is USB connected make sure that the cable is connected and that the printer is powered up. If you are connected to the printer over your network through wifi or ethernet, make sure that each device (computer and printer) is connected.
If all of these are in order and the printer still shows offline, try re-installing the software that came with the printer. Sometimes the software needs to be re-installed due to corrupted files.

The printer show offline


Hi,
Is this network printer or stand alone printer?
For both, check the power of printer.
For network printer, check print server is working, network cable from printer to print server is fine, check your computer connect to network.
For stand alone printer, check cable connect between your computer and printer.

If they are all good, restart your computer to let windows pick up your printer when it start up.
Hope this will help. Thanks for reading

X75 My color won't work. Black is fine. I installed a new one at Xmas and it worked fine. I hardly printed anything.. Yesterday the test page with peacock showed no blue and everything came out yellow. ...


run the print head cleaner tool using the lexmark software. since you hardly used the color the print head nozzle is dried up and needs to be clean.
run the print head cleaner atleast 5-10 or more times as needed.

Hp 6310 show offline wont print


Hi, how do you connect to the printer? USB/parallel/Network? Does it prints fine if you print an information page from the printer display/butons? I would try to uninstall the printer driver and install it again to start. It's definately a communication problem so it may take a few tries to get it to work again.

After a power outage, my Brother printer,


First off, make sure that you have turned both the printer and the computer off and then turn them on(cycle the power). When you go to the printer in 'printers' be sure that the printer is not light in color, if it is, then it's failed to come back online or it's broken. When you say, 'I have tried going into the control panel and clicking on print offline', I take you to mean 'print online', because you don't want to print offline, you want it online...

The easiest way to solve this is to move the usb plug going into the computer from the printer from one port to another, this will force the computer to re recognize the printer. I see that this printer has network capability. I am assuming, that the printer is connected via USB and not Ethernet. [USB, rectangle the size of your pinky, but narrow, Ethernet looks like a big phone plug]. If you move the plug from one USB slot to another and you don't hear the hardware connect sound(low tone then high tone), then your printer may be broken. It is possible if it is broken that the Ethernet port still works, but using that is beyond this discussion.

Good luck,

Brett
