The printer is connected by usb. I don't have duplicate tasks for you. I only paid for your to answer my question. Message says Printer offline- How can I fix that?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I do not wish to connet o you.
Technician: Jason Jones, Technician replied 10 months ago

You opened two duplicate tasks, which have been closed. I am sorry for the confusion.

If you wish, I can connect with you at no extra charge. If you don't wish to connect, that is totally okay as well.

May I ask how old the printer is?

Also, which version of Windows are you using?

USB hub then into computer
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I still don't see your answer and can't get it with info on my phone
Technician: Jason Jones, Technician replied 10 months ago

Often times, the hub can cause such problems. Please, bypass the hub.

- Unplug the power to the printer.
- Plug the printer directly into the computer, bypassing the hub.
- Plug the power back into the printer and turn it on.
- Wait 1 minute.

Test now to see if the printer works. Did that help?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago

So, it is not working, but you wish to stop working on it? We can continue, if you wish.
