    Is this a "local" printer (connected by cable to a computer) or a "network" printer?

If it is a network printer try this from CyberPerm
Turn off the SNMP option in the TCP/IP printer port Properties

Right-click the printer, select properties
Select port tab, highlight port, click Configure Port
UnCheck SNMP status Enabled.

1. Open Start menu.
2. Click on "Printers and Faxes"
3. Double-click the icon for your printer.
4. On the menu bar, click "Printer" to open the printer menu. Click on "Use Printer Offline" to remove the check mark. This will bring your printer back online.

If this did not help, check the printer itself & make sure it is not set to be offline.

That is ink or dirt on the rollers, you need to clean them by lifting the lid, as if you were putting new ink in, and wipeing the rollers that the paper runs through.

You need to call Brother at 1-877-brother and tell them your mfc is "missing black". They will tell you where to take it to get the print head replaced under Brothers' warranty. This is a VERY common problem and Brother will cover the cost to repair it.

When I print 1 copy from my laptop, it will not stop printing many copies and I tried to copy a photo and there are horizontal lines on the copy. Jacques

The numbers of copies your laptop print out is set in your printer software.
You did probably forget to change the numbers to 1 (one copy).

If you use normal print paper for photos, it will almost always make horizontal lines.
Use photo print paper instead, then it won't happen.

It could also be that your print cartridges need a nozzle cleaning.
Normally your printer software has a mode to this.

Hope this will help you

Hi , I have a problem with zebra 105sl printer , everytime i print somthing i have to make changes to the settings , eg. make it darker .When i save the settings permenent next time i go tto print i have...

The settings in the printer driver are overriding the saved printer settings.
Do this:
1. Correct the printer settings and save them permanently.
2. Print saved configuration for future reference and to see if it changes.(Power on while holding cancel)
3. Print a label from computer.
4. Print configuration again (Power on while holding cancel).
5. Compare the 1st and 2nd printouts. If they are different then the printer driver is changing the printer settings. In other words the printer settings and the driver are different and the driver settings will override the printer settings before printing.
6. Change the driver settings and this won't happen. Increase the darkness setting in the driver.

HP Deskjet 6980 won't print. Says offline but i don't see how to turn it back online. was working. now not.

Printers often go off line for no reason. It can be genuinely off line or the pc is just not seeing the printer anymore To put it back on line all you need to do is open the print queue (double click on the printers icon in printers devices/ printer and faxes) go to File and in the drop down list it will say "Use printer Offline or Use printer online. click on it and if the pc is seeing the printer if will change and the printer will then start up and print. If this does not work then check your cable to the printer or your network connection to reestablish the connection.
