But the printer might trouble you with some of the common errors, such as paper jam issues, offline printer problems, or network connection issues. However, such problems can be quickly fixed using proper troubleshooting techniques.

Whenever the printer troubles you with errors, at the very beginning, you need to identify what causes the problem or what the problem is. So, check whether the printer is turned on. Disconnect the power cord and reconnect it. Next, ensure that the power cable is securely connected at both ends. It might help you fix the problem.

  • On your Windows computer, go to Control Panel.
  • Navigate to the Devices and Printers section.

Sometimes, disabling the Use Printer Offline option might fix the offline printer problem.
