Sounds like you need to open the sharing section of the printer set up, and set it for sharing on the network

My Hp office-jet Pro X576 printer is connected via a network and if l send a print job it displays printer error switch off machine and the printer restarts .if l use usd it works fine


I would ensure that you have the current firmware installed on the printer and make sure that you are sending the job via network with a correct driver. If you manually set the IP address on your computer and the printer you should be able to connect direct using a crossover cable, I do that in the shop all the time.

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.

My hp c8180 printer is showing to be offline. I have uninstalled it and reinstalled driver. It worked fine when I printed the test page, then it went offline again. BTW -- it is hooked up to a router....


Go into the network setup on the printer and set it up as a static IP address. If you go into the network settings on the printer and select the manual configuration. Then go to your computer and hit Start > Run > and type CMD and hit enter. This will bring up command prompt. Type ipconfig into the command prompt and hit enter. This will show you the ip address your computer is using. It is most likely something like 192.168.1.1. Go on your printer and make the first three sets of digits the same, and change the last digit to something like .25. Then enter everything else in the printer the same as it is on your computer. This should alleviate any problems your printer has.

Paused?


The printer probably went offline, as far as your PC is concerned. On your PC, in the properties for that printer, click File and UNCHECK "Work Offline"

HP Laserjet 5000 moved and now says offline


Please verify the workstation (or server) is not set to "use printer offline", I also suggest trying to ping the ip address of the printer or trying to access the webinterface of the printer by going to printers ip address in a web browser.

Please let me know if this fixes your problem or if I can be of further assistance. Thank you.

"brother mfc 7840w printer goes offline and i cannot print need turn printer on and off.


The solution, and it took me a long time to find the simple solution, is to right click on your printer, click properties, click the ports tab and click on your Brother printer and click on configure port (or you can delete the existing one and then add another one). What you want to do is update the IP Address. The problem is that the printer does not have a static IP address, it is dynamic. If you want to confirm that, go to your printer and press the reports button and print out the network configuration report. Your IP address will show on that. It's really the last digit in the IP address that changes. This will absolutely solve your problem. Good Luck!

Printer not receiving jobs from computers in office..HELP!


what type of connector do you use? if its network printing then check ip address, cable, and the network card of the machine if it shows light, if its usb cable check the driver or cable.
note: make sure when you press the print buttom on the machine it doesnot show offline! if it shows offline you cannot print hit go or start to make it online.
if none of this work, reset the machine by hitting 1087 twice this will take you to maintenance mode then hit 906 then start, highlight the words that come on screen by your finger then hit start, the machine will ask you to put the main power on and off, do that and you will be fine.
Best Regards
