  1. turn the power on. Click [Online] when displayed, or click [Print Queue] and change settings to Online settings.

    Alternatively, you can cancel the print job by clicking [Cancel] when displayed.

  7. Had the misfortune of buy a laptop which has no Windows 7 Drivers. Only person in the entire company (Mix of windows 7 and MACs that cant print. Tried many solutions but it is just refuses to work. I never thought it would be possible to achieve less with an operating system that Vista, at least Vista managed really basic tasks like printing. The solution here didnt work for me.

  8. Hello I did that my printer still says that it's offline and nothing changes, what do I do?

  9. If the check mark/offline is not allowing you change it. look for 'Change as Administrator'. This will allow you to uncheck the offline status for your printer.

  10. That didn't work.  It is only offline in windows 8.1.  Two computers running windows 7 have no problem.  I think I need to replace windows 8.1 with a mac.

  11. Thank you.  I got my printer online.

  12. The network printer still shows offline when I get to  and unticked the 'Use the printer offline ' on "See what's printing". in fact it says "" printer offline and USE PRINTER OFFLINE "" so What else can be done?

  13. Thank you so much I was pulling out my hair 🙂
