Best Fix: Why Does My Printer Go Offline?


As we know that SNMP stands for Simple Network Management Protocol, which mainly serves as a means of getting information from network devices like printers, routers, etc.

Your printer goes offline because the Windows enables SNMP support and when it does not get a response to an SNMP message, it assumes that the printer is offline.

(i) Right-Click on the Printer(Printers Window).

(ii) Select Ports tab.

(iii) Select 'Configure Port'.

(iv) Untick SNMP status enable.
