Network printer errors
Sometimes you may face an offline mode error on your network printer. In this mode your network printer is not available on the network. You may also face this error message, if the printer is not connected to the network. If you are using a network printer, sometimes your printer creates a print command that takes it offline. To resolve this issue you need to change the printer settings.
Causes and symptoms
In a printer, there may be a button to activate the offline mode. Your network printer can enter an offline mode, if you push this button. You may fail to get printouts, if your network printer is in offline mode. If your printer is in offline mode, you will get an error message that indicates that your printer is offline.
Ways to fix these errors
If you face an offline error message with your network printer, you need to make sure that the printer is running and that all cables are secure. You have two options to turn off the offline mode. One is by changing the printer settings on the computer, and the other is by pressing the button on the printer. To change the settings of the printer, you need to select 'Printers and Faxes' from Control Panel. Double-click on the printer you want to change to online from the displayed window. A pop-up window will open and you need to uncheck the 'Printer Offline' option from the menu bar.
