Network Printer Offline
Posted on 2010-11-16
We have a Brother 2250DN shared as a network printer on our Windows 2003 print server.
This has been working quite happily since I installed 6 weeks ago but suddenly it stopped working a couple of days ago.
In the printer list it says "Offline", if you right click to bring the printer online there is no online option - it just says "Use Printer Offline"
I have restarted the printer with no luck, I have also reinstalled the printer on the server and it remains offline.
The only way I can get the printer to work is to install it on another server, in which case it works OK. If possible I would like to avoid switching servers as I will have to set up everyone's printer again.
Any ideas appreciated.
