Windows: The status of my printer is Offline or Paused and I can't print. How can I make it ready to print again?
If the status of your printer or All-In-One is Offline or Paused you will be unable to print. Provided that the printer is connected and configured correctly, manually changing the printer's status will enable you to print again.
Your printer may become Paused following an error with a print job. Offline status may occur with network-capable printers like the Expression Home XP-820 where, after first setting up the printer on a USB connection, you then disconnect the USB cable and set it up as a network printer instead.
