What printer do you have?  What router do you have? What operating system are you using?  They need this info to be able to help you.............

Re: My printer is offline and will not print, How do I fix this?

Hi

 

When it comes  to computers and printers etc I am a complete novice. However I always do my best to solve my own problems.

 

Trial and Error is my philosophy lol! I have always remembered what my I.T. teacher told me - It can't bite you!

 

So with thast thought in mind what I do is press all sorts of keys in order to find ut what they can do for me.

 

 I had this problem also whereas my computer was off line. What I did was press print - this will then take you onto the print menu. I held my cursor over the name of my printer , in my case HP Photosmart c310, then I pressed right click. It stated offline, so I placed my cursor over the offline and right clicked again and Walla! my printer was printing gain!

 

I hope this helps.

I uninstalled the printer and installed the drivers again.  I am still not getting the printer to show up on the computer, I have entered the IP address as well and still unable to find the printer.  Any suggestions!

Re: My printer is offline and will not print, How do I fix this?

I had the same problem for a while with Brother 4070 cdw laser printer.

 

I had one pc and more than one laptop that are connected to a home network thru router.

I added the printer to the network and everything was working fine for more than a year.

Suddenly, the printer showed as offline from the PC.

 

I tried most of the solutions out there in the forums but the most succesful one was:

Download new utilities from brother printer website.

One utility in particular named as Netool resolved the issue and created a new port that is supported by the printer (Binary port)

Now my printer is working and everyone is happy Smiley Happy

Re: My printer is offline and will not print, How do I fix this?

I see these are new posts on an older thread.

 

 

What operating system is being used?

 

What model is the printer?

 

What brand and model is the router?
