    wireless device is turned off


    Guys,

    I know this is not a Windows related question, but I respect your opinion. So;

    My Wife's phone: an [Le S3 Lex636] has started saying "wireless device is turned off" when I try to make a call. (Note, I'm not using WiFi here, just making a phone call!) It has also stopped receiving calls. I can, however successfully send/receive calls using Whatsapp.

    Don't know whats going on.. Ideas anyone??

    :)

    in windows 10 how do i turn on my wireless printer

    Hi,

    • What is the make and model of the printer and the computer?

    As you have mentioned that “I cannot turn on my wireless printer. it says my radio is off”
    which means the wireless button might not have turned ‘ON’ on your printer.

    So I suggest you to check for the wireless button on the printer and turn it ‘ON’ then follow the below steps to ‘ADD’ the wireless printer on your computer and connect it, check if it helps.

    • In the Search box type as ‘Device and Printers’.
    • Click on ‘Add a printer’ you will find the wireless printer is displayed on your computer.
    • Click on the printer and click on ‘Next’.
    • Follow the onscreen instruction and connect the computer and printer.

    If still you are facing issue in connecting the wireless printer then I suggest you to refer to the printer manual and check if it helps.

    Please get back to us with an update on this issue, we will be happy to assist you further.

    Thank you

    Wireless devices are disabled after you turn off Airplane Mode in Windows 10

    Hi Debra,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    I will be glad to help you with the issue you have with the computer. I understand the frustration when things don't work the way it should.

    Flight mode gives you a quick way of turning off all wireless communications on your PC. Some examples of wireless communications are WiFi, mobile, Bluetooth, GPS and near field communication (NFC).

    This issue occurs because the Airplane mode setting changes before the wireless devices are configured. Therefore, the system cannot relay the Airplane mode settings to the devices.

    To work around this issue, follow these steps:

    • Tap or click Settings.
    • Tap or click Change PC Settings.
    • Tap or click Wireless.
    • Tap or click an affected device to turn it on again.
    Hope this information is helpful. Please post in case you have any further issues, we are happy to help you further.

    Thank you.
