    Printer Status (XP2)

    I am sharing a printer on a small network. It was working fine for months, suddenly whenever a print job is sent to the printer the status changes from "Ready" to "Offline". I have tried shutting down the entire network and re-booting everything, but to no avail. Any ideas? Thank you

    What make & model of printer? Have you checked for a paper jam? Have you check the physical connection? Have you updated drivers recently?

    Joe, Thanks for the reply. I have a Borther DCP1200. All connections are fine. No paper jam. I have not updated the drivers recently. However, I am able to scan from the printer.

    Is it correct that you can not print from the PC to which the printer is attached? Have you powered down both the PC (not just reboot) and printer?
