My printer will not print anything. It doesn't say any errors. I use windows vista.


You likely need to download an updated driver for Vista from the printer mfg internet connection. Delete and reinstall the printer in the computer as if the printer was new. When it looks for the driver, point to where you have the new driver stored. Hope this helps.

Windows says printer offline, but it is not offline. network settings confirmed. windows firewall turned off. scanner works perfectly over network, but printer is "offline"


The printer offline error mostly troubles windows 7/8/10 users, The printers loses connectivity even when it is connected and operating. The status message displays offline on the computer, and the printer does not print. An Offline status indicates that the computer has failed to communicate with the printer. In some network conditions, the printer might get offline unexpectedly.

Before going to the solution for this you must know when and why printer offline error takes place:
The error may appear when Windows 8 diagnoses that the printer is unavailable, but unfortunately, most times it fails to tell whether the printer is really offline or if it has connectivity problems or printing errors. Reasons why your printer appears to be offline, include problems with hardware, such as disconnected cables or malfunctioning equipment, and problems with software, such as corrupted or incompatible driver files.
These might occur when:
1. The connection between the computer and the printer is slow/unresponsive.
2. The printer has encountered an internal error
3. There are multiple unfinished print jobs in the queue.
There are some simple steps you can follow before going to any complicated way:
Your printer offline can be a problem with the driver software. This is a small piece of code that Windows and the printers use to "talk" to each other. If the driver software is outdated, corrupted or incompatible with the version of Windows that you have installed, you may need to update it.
Restart the printer and the computer or unplug its USB cable.
Do check that the printer's power cable is plugged into an electrical outlet. If the printer is connected to a power strip, make sure the strip itself is connected to the electricity supply and is turned on.
In case you are using a network printer both wired or wireless, You restart the router as it may cause due to network failure.
Different manufacturers come with their own diagnostics software which can inform the user about the problems coming up (Ex : HP's Print and Scan Doctor), Use it as it will be really useful.
PRINTER OFFLINE ERROR Solution 1 :
Type in Services in your windows searches and hit the enter key. Click on Services option from the set of search results as shown below.
A new window for Services opens up. Scroll down and find the entry named Print Spooler.
Now right-click on Print Spooler entry and then on Properties option.
Set Startup type as Automatic from the drop-down menu.
As next, hit the Start button and wait till windows start the Print Spooler. Once done, hit Apply button.
Now if you look at the status of the Print Spooler, you can see that it is Started.
Solution 2 :
If the above method doesn't work for you, you can always try our second method. For that, type in Devices to the windows search and choose Devices and Printers from the search results.
Now find the printer that is offline and right click on it. Click on the option See what's printing from the context menu that appears.
A new window opens. Now click on the Printer tab and uncheck the option that says Use Printer Offline.

Job Status Window Interface has stopped working.


The issue usually occurs if you are using windows xp drivers on a vista machine. It's strange that the error does not come up when printing from internet explorer 7.0.

There is a file on support.dell.com that you can run to remove any xp drivers and then run the vista installation file. that should take care of these error messages from the operating system.

you can copy and paste the following links to download and run the files :

Photosmart 2575 printer is offline - won't print


In Vista make sure you are logged in as a administrator whenever you make any changes.

And if not to bring the printer online you will have to right click on the printer icon and right click on Run as administrator> and then try bringing the printer online and checdk if it works.

And you can delete the Microsoft XPS Document writer it is a default printer icon installed if in case you did not have a printer installed you can store them to print later.
Now that you already have a printer you can delete the Microsoft XPS Document writer.

Good Luck
