If your printer is paused or displays an offline issue, check if any error message appears on the printer's LCD panel. The printer paused error sometimes occurs due to jammed paper or empty ink cartridges. If you see any such trouble, then take appropriate action. Also, be sure that your printer connects to the computer and the internet in the right way. After taking these measures, you should be able to wake up your printer from the paused mode. Are you still facing any issue? Check if you have selected it as a default printing device.
