A local Phaser 3260 printer frequently enters the offline state. I think that happens after the computer "wakes up". After a reboot the printer returns to normal, and the jobs in the queue are printed. The connection is USB. I have re-installed the driver several times, but to no avail.
A similar problem was posted in 2016 but was never resolved:
Thank you for your help in resolving this issue for me and others. It does affects one's productivity.
Have you made sure the SNMP Status Enabled Option is not selected?
I see no one has responded to this post yet. So, at this point I would recommend contacting your local Xerox Support Department to speak with a Product Specialist for more assistance. Please call 1-800-821-2797 or 1-800-835-6100
My 3260 kept going offline and couldn't get it back online. Win10/64. De-installed all of the 3260 software and downloaded the latest Win10/64 software from XEROX site. Can't complete the installation (can't find printer) even though I can successfully ping the device from several PCs / mobile devices.
Anyone have any ideas?
Are you using the WiFi connection? I am no expert in any sense, but I'd try the USB connection first to reset/setup the printer. At least that's how I am using it.
Cheers and Good Luck.
Even connected directly to my computer it goes offline. I tried hooking the printer into the modem and hooking the computer into the modem. It is still not working.I have never figured out how to set it up on WIFI. The manual online must have been written someone with a Doctorate Degree in Everything about printers. It is too long and it is very difficult to find anything that will fix. This I tried a chat but then got the message they didn't open until 9 AM. I tried at that time and could not find the chat. I am extremely frustrated.
