    After switching on printer, Windows still sees it as off-line


    I have a Brother HL-L5100DN laserprinter, connected via LAN to the home network. Since a Windows update, there is the following issue. When I switch on the printer and make a print, the printing process does not start. Windows sees the printer still as off-line. When I set via Control Panel the printing status first on off-line and then on on-line, Windows starts to see the printer and prints normally. Any trick or setting to solve this? W10 64 bit 20H2; Brother firmware and driver up-to-date.

    Hello @PiKo,

    Just a thought really. What is the Default Printer set as [ I do NOT have one on here but it will give you an idea ], and have you run the Printers & Scanners Troubleshooter? . . .

    Brother is default printer. I do not let Windows manage my default printer. The troubleshooter says that the printer is off-line, but running the troubleshooter inspires Windows to see the printer.
