Has anyone experienced a situation where a printer appears as offline until the Spooler service is restarted? Any thoughts?
Steps I have tried:
- Updating to the latest print driver (for Vista 64-bit; the driver is WHQL certified)
- Uninstalling and re-installing the printer
- Disabling Windows firewall
The printer is a Brother MFC-490CW, set up wirelessly. It's not being shared through another PC. I'm printing to it just fine using Windows 7 64-bit.
