After firmware update on Dell 2335dn printer is OFFLINE

Once I did that firmware update(Dell2335dn_FW_A05_v2.70.05.02.hd) on this printer, the printer is offline.

Here are the steps I’ve already taken:

Deleted printer and re added from print server. Log off RDP  session and back on.
When I reset the print spooler service on print server whatever was in the que prints, but then goes right back to OFFLINE.
I have tried reinstalling the firmware update – per Dell Tech Support.
I have unplugged both the data cable and power and let sit for 30 seconds and then replugged everything back in – per Dell Tech Support

Any other ideas I can try?

Print Server is on a Server 2008 R2 Standard machine

Accessing printers thru remote destop.

The printer was working fine until I did that firware update to get it to have the Quick Scan feature.

I think it actually says use offline and you need to uncheck it.  when you right click on the installed printer on the print server.

When I look at the printer on my windows 2007 computer, it also says OFFLINE and when I right click on it there is NO anything that says OFFLINE. On the print server there isn't an uncheck to use offine either.

Once I reset the print spooler service, the OFFLINE goes away until someone tries to print to it, then it goes OFFLINE again.

What cured this was putting the Dell printer down to a lower firmware again.  all worked fine.
