It is very annoying to see your printer offline when you try to print something immediately. If you find that the status of your Brother printer is offline or paused, you can follow the troubleshooting steps discussed below to make it online.

Resolving Hardware / Software Problems

1. Make sure the Printer is turned on

  • When your printer won't print, make sure the printer is turned on and check the printer cable. A cable that is damaged, disconnected because it is cut, bitten by a mouse, or because of age will make the printer unable to work.
  • Make sure that you check the printer to see if the printer is in sleep mode. Wake up from sleep mode to change it online.
  • If your printer cannot be turned on, then you must ensure that it is connected to a functioning power socket and that the switch is turned on.

If this warning appears, hurry to the place where the printer is and refill the paper in the printer's paper storage area.

Just as paper runs out, printer ink that runs out also causes the printer to go offline. Because how can print, when the ink runs out. For that you have to fill it again. It is best not to get used to filling ink only when the ink has run out. Refill ink when ink is at the limit will run out, or before it is completely used up so as not to damage the cartridge.

5. Let the printer rest

Even though it is a machine, the printer can also experience 'fatigue'. If you are printing a large number of documents, you should give the printer some time to rest. Do not force the printer to continue working, do the printing in stages.
