Check your printer connections.
Go to printer folder and clean all pending jobs.
Turn off your printer
Turn off your computer
Turn on your computer
Turn on yor printer

Check the status fo the printer must be "ready" (at the printer folder)
If not replace the printer cable.

Is this the initial install? If so do this.. I finally figured this out. Do the "cable" install. After it discovers the printer etc you will get to a screen during the driver part of the install that will ask you how to find the printer. The "recommended" list method is a deadend!  Instead, check the IP address option and input that.. You can get the IP address of the printer from the test page which should have already printed.(Its probably 192.168.2.3).  I run   XP and it solved the problem. I suspect its also the answer for Macs and Vista as well.
I have also had success by doing the "cable" install, then when its done, deleting the printer in Printers and Faxes, then doing a manual install (you still need the IP address).  I am using two computers to go to this printer and it flies. Great speed.

Hi, My Star TSP100 printer always goes offline after computer shutdown


Hi Valued Star Customer

It seems like the USB host may be going into "sleep mode" and not awakening. Please contact Star Support at support@star-emea.com for documentation.

Printer is offline. how do I get it online?


Once you have added either a USB or networked printer to your PC or Mac computer, you can begin sending documents to print. However, on occasion, a print command will create an error on the printer and take it offline, which will prevent all future jobs from printing. To resolve this issue, you will need to change your printer settings from offline to online.
    PC Instructions - Open the Start menu and click on the "Printers and Faxes" icon. This will open a window with a list of the printers currently set up on your computer. - Double-click on the icon of the printer you want to change to online. A pop-up window detailing all current print jobs will open. - Go to Printer in the menu bar of the pop-up window and uncheck "Use Printer Offline." This action will change the printer from offline to online. Mac Instructions - Open System Preferences by clicking on the icon in the Dock. - Go to the Print & Fax control panel under the Hardware category. - Select the printer you want to take online from the list on the left side of the screen. Then click on the "Open Print Queue" button. - Click on the "Resume Printer" button at the top of the queue window to change the printer from offline to online.

    Printer Offline Message


    Hi,

    Go to system settings and select the 'Printer' option.

    Right-click on the printer and enable the 'Use Printer Online' function.

    Cancel all the printing jobs till that moment and redo the process.

    Sometimes the 'Printer Offline' message occurs due to a 'Job Stuck' issue.

    Check all network connections and functions.

    Be sure the network interfaces work properly.

    Turn the printer off and on to see whether the device is working properly.

    I have used my printer wirelessly before and not had a problem, now it says my printer is "offline" - how can I get it "online"?


    Follow the steps:

    1. Make sure that the printer is turned on.
    2. Go to Control Panel and click on Printers and Faxes (for XP) or Printers (for Vista).
    3. Right-click the printer icon > click "Use printer online".

    NOTE: Once you see the option "Use printer online" after right-clicking the printer icon, meaning that the printer is offline. But if you right-click the icon and you see "Use printer offline", meaning that the printer is online.

    Trying to print 'offline'. Computer recognises it is offline but will not print. Error message says 'Printer is offline' which is as it should be. Printer is HP photosmart C4580.


    So, if you want to print, the printer must be online. Offline method doesn't work to print. When the computer sayst that the printer is offline, it means ypur printer is turned off or you don't connected the printer to PC.
    As in conclusion, if you want to print set the printer online.
