Epson workforce 630 offline

If your Epson workforce 630 offline, check the connection between your printer and computer.

Epson printers are sensitive devices that react quickly. They will send an offline printer message even when there is a slight voltage fluctuation. This is quite acceptable because a shortage of power would naturally affect the printer's performance. In some cases, rebooting the router will get rid of the printer offline issue and will eventually get back the printer from the offline state. But sometimes, the offline issue doesn’t solve easily due to some changes to the PC. You need to follow the below troubleshooting steps in order to bring back your Epson WorkForce 630 printer from an offline state to online.


Remove and re-add the printer

Re-adding the printer is one of the troubleshooting methods you can try.

  • Click on the Windows Start icon.
  • Navigate to the Devices and Printers section.
  • Now, you will see the list of printers connected to your PC or present within the range.
  • Locate your Epson WorkForce 630 printer.
  • Right-click on your printer icon and click Remove Device.
  • Wait for a few minutes and re-add the printer to your computer via a USB cable.


Check the overall connections

  • If your Epson printer’s LCD screen is not lit up, then check whether the printer is connected properly to a reliable electrical source.
  • Also, confirm that the power cable is not damaged in any way.
  • Confirm that your PC’s firewall setting is not blocking the network connection.
  • Next, check your display to confirm that there are no messages like a paper jam or ink cartridge empty message.
  • If your printer displays any error codes, kindly go through them to solve the same.
  • Restart your printer and wait for 1-2 minutes until it is fully functional.


Check the cartridges and look for paper jams

  • Take out the ink cartridges from your Epson WorkForce 630 printer and check whether there are any tapes left unremoved.
  • Anyways, if you haven’t changed the cartridge system of your printer, then do change it right away.
  • In some instances, the error could be popping up due to a paper jam.
  • If that is the case, then gently remove the jammed paper.

Clear the printer queue

  • Sometimes, the pending print jobs might get piled up on your printer. This scenario can also cause the offline problem on your printer. To fix this, you’ll have to clear the printer queue. By cancelling or deleting the pending print jobs, you can get your printer back to the online status.


Update the printer driver

  • Printer drivers play an essential role in the overall functioning of a printer. It is a known fact that printer drivers do get older over time, so it is necessary to update the drivers from time to time for a smooth printer experience.


Last possible troubleshooting step

If possible, uninstall the old printer drivers and their traces from your PC, and download the full feature printer drivers from the Epson support page.
