Printer frequently shows as offline when it's not

Symptoms: Your network printer frequently shows up as "offline" when it's on and functioning properly.

Causes: Unknown, but related to Windows XP print spooler.


  • Disable print spooling and print directly to printer. This results in a faster print job, but will lock up the application that's printing until the print is complete.
