Following tips can help you resolve most of your printer problems.
  • Turn off the computer, disconnect the printer cable and restart the computer. Now Reconnect the printer back to the computer and power it on. Power cycling resets the software and applications, enabling the computer to detect the printer and hence resolves the printer problems.
  • If the printer is offline, right click on the printer's icon > select 'Properties' from the drop-down list, and put it to the online mode.
  • Uninstall outdated drivers and download and install the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website. This should resolve the problem as non-updated drivers stop the printer from functioning smoothly.
  • Uninstall the printer software, turn off the printer, disconnect printer from the computer. Now reboot the computer, reinstall the printer software and reconnect the printer to the computer.
  • Review your anti-virus and firewall settings
  • Check  your recently modified your wireless settings , in case of wireless printer
  • Print a test page
  • Make sure that you are sending print commands to the right printer. Wireless printers are often mistaken if you have multiple printer of the same brand running on the network.
  • Check your internet connection to see if wireless printer is accessible. Just open your browser and open any site that is not cached on your computer.
