If you mean it shows "offline" in Windows, you can sometimes just uncheck that checkmark from the properties menu and it comes online. This happens if the printer experiences a problem. The computer has no way of knowing that you fixed the problem so you have to tell it that you fixed the problem.
If you are talking about the printer not being online (the actual hardware) you can try clicking on the "reset dell printer" icon in windows. You may need to download this utility from dell.com.

Keeps telling me the printer is offline


Check the status of the printer at Control Panel. Set it to online if it's shown as offline. If this doesn't fix the problem, check whether installing the vista driver available at your printer manufacturer's website helps.

Step 1:
a. Click Start, go to Control Panel and select Hardware and Sound.
b. Click Printer.
c. If the Printer is offline, it shows "Offline" status. If the Printer is online it shows "Ready".
d. If the Printer is offline, set it to online.
e. Right-click on the printer and select "Use Printer Online".
f. The display should change to ready when the printer is set to online.

Step 2:
If still you are facing issues, then update the printer driver. This should fix the problem.

My brother 4040CN printer is on a offline mode how do i set it to online mode?


Hello, Open the start menu and click on the "printers and faxes" icon. This will open a window with the list of printers currently set up on your computers.

2. Double click on the icon of the printer you want to change to online. A pop-up window detailing all current print job will open.

3. Go to printer in the menu bar of the pop-up window and unchecked "use printer offline". This action will change the printer from offline to online mode.

Open the "Printers" window.
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on the printer.
Click to "go online" or "use online" or click to disable the "offline" status.
