Question about HP Officejet Pro L7780 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP Officejet L7780

Every time our power goes off, my printer which is connected wirelessly goes offline and there is no way to make it go online. The printer says its still connected to the wireless network but it wont go online. The only way I can get it to work is to remove the printer and put it back. I wanted to know if there was a better way. I use Vista. Thanks.

    Same problem. Lousy workaround is right clicking printer in control panel and unchecking "use offline". Printer seems to lose connectivity when either printer or host computer powersaves/hibernates. HP needs to write a discovery service to be queued on wake up. I've managed to fix the problem by setting the print spooler to restart ever 5 minutes..... Gay!

My Printer is offline and will not print


Hi!

If the printer says offline, the initial step that you need to check is the physical connection. If it is a USB printer, verify if the USB Cable is properly connected on both ends (PC to Printer and vise versa). If it is a network or wireless printer, make sure the printer is connected to your network. For wireless printers, you can easily identify if its just the wireless settings problem by connecting your printer hard wired to your wireless router. After you hardwired it, go to Printers and Faxes for XP, for Windows 7 and Vista click on Devices and Printers on the Control Panel. Right-click on your Printer icon then select "Use Printer Online" then try to print a test page.

Regards!

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.

The Printer will not come online


Usualy you have to set up the wirless in the printer driver settings before you go wireless. I suggest pluging the printer in make sure the drivers are installed and before the disconnect choose these settings in your advanced printer driver settings (if it is wireless) and then disconnect and reboot.

My printer is saying it is offline


Easy fix...

Start Button ---> Settings ---> Control Panel ---> Printers and Faxes ---> find your printer in the list, right-click and choose "Use Printer Online" Give it a few seconds and voila :) If it doesn't come online, check your connections, make sure the power is on (on the printer), or the wireless connection to your router. Hope this helps! -- RT

Hp deskjet 6980 will not change to online. Working wirelessly. It says Offline and can't be changed to Online. I have to reinstall everytime.


Right click printer properties and select online. Start /settings /printers. Offline can also indicate a connection is not available - this occurs with demo versions of printer software. When the demo expires, the printer goes offline. The fix is to just use windows networking and shared printer.

Printer status says offline, and we can not print on laptop


Hi!
If you're offline with the printer, you definitely won't be able to print.

I'm assuming you're using Windows XP here. Most Windows products will be similar...

On the laptop, click on the Start button, then Settings, then Printers and Faxes. Find your printer in the list, right-click on it and click "Use Online" or uncheck the "Offline" box.

Good luck! Remember to rate the solutions!
