My printer says it is offline I have a MacBook

Most printers you go into your computer where your printer is listed, find the printer right click mouse or pad, and you may see a line that says off line, click on it and many times it puts it back on line...

Cannot print. Message says the printer is off-line. How do I get back on-line? Thanks

Try turning the power off and then back on after a few seconds.  If that does not work go to the Printer Control Panel or Printer Utility file and see if it needs to be set up again.  There may be a selection there to bring it back on line.

Brother MFC8300

According to THIS LINK the driver for the 8300 is built into XP.

I assume you have tried to uninstall (delete) the printer and allow XP to re detect/install it.

Chech that the printer is not paused or off line

start, settings, printers, (classic menu)

Does the printer have "paused and/or off line" under the icon?

If so Right click the printer and if says either "resume printing" or "use printer on line" (or perhaps both) letf click these otions to change them

The printer should now say "ready"

post back results so I may try and assist you further

Printer won't print.

Click on start / printers and faxes and verify that your printer says on line, right click on it and make sure it says use printer online if it says other wise change it to use printer on line

if that fails unjack your printer from the current usb port and connect it to another. :)
