After going offline, I am unable to even ping the printer. No drivers have been changed but we had an engineer visit a few weeks ago who swapped the hard drive in the printer.

Try doing a factory reset (NVRAM reset) on the printer. This can be done from the front panel under System Settings > Troubleshooting > Service Tools. Note that you will have to re-enter all printer settings, like IP address etc.

Can you ping the IP address of the printer? If so, check the port settings and see if the SNMP box is checked. If so, uncheck it and the printer will probably come back online. If this is the problem, there is a hotfix for it.

If neither of the above fixes solve the problem.

A little more information is needed.

A. Is this on Network? i.e. Peer to Peer.  or client server Win 2003 Server?

B. Could you print a configuration page so we can see IP address for printer as well as
router Ip address and sub net.

We had the same problem for 2 weeks with 3 8560MFPs randomly going offline and then being unable to access the web interface but still responding to pings.

After 3 engineer visits and 2 new hard drives and 1 electronics module Xerox have said that it was a problem with their Universal PS Driver and since we swapped to the model specific PS driver the problem has not reoccurred. Print server is Windows 2003 R2 SP2
