Bring an Offline Samsung Printer Online

Bringing a Samsung printer online is a fairly straightforward process, but it does involve a few necessary steps. The steps may vary slightly depending on the model of Samsung printer you own, but in general, the process is the same. Here is a step by step guide on how to bring an offline Samsung printer online.

Steps to Fix Samsung Printer Offline Issues

  1. Check Printer and Cable Connections: Check the power cords and USB cables connected to the printer and make sure all connections are secure.
  2. Check the Printer’s Status: On the printer's control panel, verify the current status of the printer. If it says “Offline," you need to make changes to the settings.
  3. Set the Printer as Default: You must make sure that the printer is set as the default printer. To do this, go to the ‘Printer and Faxes' section in your computer’s Control Panel.
  4. Update Printer Driver: If the above steps don’t help, then you need to update your printer driver. It is strongly suggested that you obtain the printer drivers from the Samsung official site.
  5. Run Printer Troubleshooter: You can use the Printer Troubleshooter to diagnose and fix printing problems after installing the updated drivers.
  6. Reset the Printer: If you still experience issues with your printer offline, try resetting the device to the factory default. You should refer to the printer manual for further guidance.

How Do I Get My Samsung Printer From Offline to Online on Windows 10?

First, make sure your printer is properly connected to your computer. This generally involves connecting the Samsung printer’s power cord into an electrical socket, and connecting the printer’s USB cable to an available USB port on your computer. For wireless connection, your printer must already be configured with your home network’s wireless credentials.

Next, check the printer’s status. Your computer should recognize the printer and the ‘Printers and Faxes’ windows on your computer’s control panel should list the Samsung printer. If your computer has difficulties recognizing the printer, you should check the USB connection or try a re-installation of the printer’s drivers.

If the printer is recognized, you should now be able to select the printer from the ‘Printers and Faxes’ window. Choose the ‘Set as Default Printer’ option from the ‘File’ menu and answer ‘Yes’ when asked to confirm the action.

Once the Samsung printer is set as your default printer, you should now be able to run a test print from a word processing program such as Microsoft Word to check that the printer is working properly. The test print should show up on your printer’s display window within a few seconds.

Now that your printer is functioning correctly, you should check the printer’s display window. The display window should show the printer’s current status, and if the status is shown as ‘Offline’, you should select the ‘Change Printer Status’ option and set the status as ‘Online’.

The printer should now be online. Additional steps may differ from model to model. For instance, depending on your printer’s model, you may have to install the Samsung Printer Management software and/or the Samsung Easy Printer Manager software to ensure that your printer is working properly.

Finally, check that a print job sent from a computer to the Samsung printer is printed correctly. If there are any issues, you should reinstall the printer’s drivers and/or run troubleshooting tests from the printer software.

By following these instructions, you should be able to bring your offline Samsung printer online. Always use the printer’s display window, as well as its software to monitor and adjust the printer’s status. If the manual doesn’t help you resolve any issues, you should contact a Supportly App customer support representative for assistance.
