Printer not reacting
Sometimes, the printer doesn't respond even though it is connected. This problem occurs because of the presence of some malware and viruses in your system. The malware and viruses interrupt the working of the printer by corrupting the printer software and drivers. Some of the malware could even delete the printer drivers. In this condition, the printer doesn't work at all.
Printer offline mode
Another reason for the printer offline mode is the fault in the connection procedure. When an offline mode of the Brother printer occurs, check whether the printer cables are properly connected or not. In this case, detach all the cable connections and then make the connections properly. The printer offline errors also arise if the printer software and the drivers are not installed properly.
First of all, check the cable connections. Then uninstall the existing antivirus software. Install an efficient antivirus software which is compatible with the Operating System. Then run the whole system scan and remove all the viruses and malware. If the printer still remains in the offline mode, check the printer software and drivers. Reinstall the printer software and the drivers from the authorized CD or DVD. Check the printer drivers and the software; see whether they are up to date or not. If they are not, update the software and drivers of the Brother printer through the manufacturer website.
