How to Solve Printer Offline Problem
Electronic machines are prone to technical problems. Technical problems can be solved in various ways if you have found better solutions for your problems. These technical problems can also occur to computers and the related hardware components such as printers, hard disks and RAM.
Printers are electronic devices. They are used to take hard copies of documents. There are various models of printers.
Set the printer to online. There won’t be possible results but try to do this as the first try. First you should go to settings and select Printer. Right click and select “Use printer online”. Check printing a document to see if the functions are ok. If not do the next step.
If there is a queue of print jobs waiting clear them. Double click on the "Printer" after. Go to the "Printer Menu" and select "Cancel All Documents". Due to the queue of print jobs there would have been overload of work and it could have got stuck. Again set the printer to online and try printing a document.
Switch on the Printer. Once you turn it on then turn it off again, after that wait for a minute and switch it on again. Check if there is a printing Jam. If you are on a shared network check if there is any problem with the server and check the connections too. Restart the computer.
If none of these work try to reinstall the drivers. As usual go to settings and select Printer. Right click and select properties. Select General tab and select the drivers. If you don’t have the proper drivers download it from the manufacturer’s website. Or check if you have got a driver CD while you purchased your Printer. Update your printer driver frequently.
Finally if none of the above works just reinstall your printer. Select the printer under the Setting’s Printer menu. Delete the printer and reinstall it. You will have a installation wizard to help you. Don’t forget to install the printer driver.
