STEPS: Fix Printer Offline To Online
Follow each step to ensure you haven’t overlooked anything necessary to get your printer back online.
Checks on the printer’s physical condition and cable connections
Verify that both USB cable ends are securely inserted. If the printer is connected to a network, ensure that the Ethernet connection is securely placed.
If the printer is wireless, verify that it is linked to the internet or that it is connected to the router.
If you’re utilising a cable connection, try plugging the printer’s end into several ports or sockets on your device.
Utilize an alternative cable to ascertain that the issue is not with the cable alone.
If you’re using a network or wireless device, a quick test would be to connect a cable to your computer/device and verify that your printer is functioning properly. As a result, the issue may be with your network connection.
