Re: why is my printer offline?

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.

Set peace of mind as your highest goal,and organize your life around it.
