Why Brother Printer is Not Printing?


 Posted by Brother Support on February 20, 2018


Using Brother Printers is one of the most convenient ways to keep your documents on point. Also, isn’t it more convenient for photographers to keep printers of their own and get their images printed whenever they have to hand it out to the clients or for exhibition. Though, what customers are more scared of is the constant maintenance of the device that is too much trouble for many people. Thus, they have to face some technical problems every now and then which create some several mishaps with the device and eventually, decreases productivity.

One of the mishaps customers ask about is that their device is not printing. In that case, it is important to check if their printer is online! Is it a thing to worry about? Not really as Brother Customer Support Canada team suggests a way which customers can use to turn offline printer to online mode:
