I am running Windows 7 Professional 32 bit and I have a networked copier and a couple of local printers for my computer. I have recently set them up - have the correct drivers
for these printers and they work - most of the time.
The problems that I am having is the printers will suddenly stop working. If I go into the Devices and Printer Control Panel they are still there but they are faded like they are off line, even when they are on and running. I have found that the only thing I can do is to restart the whole system to get them on-line again. This is happening at least once a day but with infrequent intervals - It happened in the first five minutes after I turned on my computers this morning. But after about 6 hours yesterday.
