I am running a HP PSC 1315xi with Windows XP Pro and after I replaced an empty black ink cartridge it printed out an alignment sheet. I did what it said and scanned the document. However for some reason the printer is listed by Windows as Offline even though I have it turned on and connected.no matter what USB ports I use.

Take black ink cartridge to have it tested. if it is most likely empty, then you will know what you need to do. I had the same problem. I was blown away how fast generic ink cartridges get used up. Now I buy New ink with HP packaging, they last so much longer. There is also a printer ink cleaning test print mode on most printers. Click through the menu on your printer to run this test first. Your black ink cartridge may be dried up, and need cleaned.
the most important is to remove all the air from the cartridge that has left inside durring refilling that is why professionals are using special machines that refill in 0 air πρεσυρε using vaccum pump
you can check here a video on how to refill with out any special equipment
If there are a compatiable black cartridge
replace this cartridge with your old empty cartridge and print a test page (don't mind about printing of black )
If speed is correct,
then replace the black cartridge with another new cartridge.
(some time compatiable black cartridge not work properly to flow ink)
i think some **** of paper might be stuck inside the printer mechanism, carefully check it. if no, try the following :
* unload the cartridges and reload it back
* keep the printer offline (disconnect from the pc) and try copying something
* realign the cartridges with a former printed alignment sheet (i think u may have known how to align it)
