Check the physical connection. see if the printer is powered on and that the usb cable is connected properly to the computer. after installing the printer drivers and software, go to control panel then double click printers. you will see your printer installed. right click that and look for offline option. make sure it is not checked.

Why the offline message

Check the status of the printer at Control Panel. Set it to online if it's shown as offline. If this doesn't fix the problem, check whether installing the vista driver available at your printer manufacturer's website helps.

Step 1:
a. Click Start, go to Control Panel and select Hardware and Sound.
b. Click Printer.
c. If the Printer is offline, it shows "Offline" status. If the Printer is online it shows "Ready".
d. If the Printer is offline, set it to online.
e. Right-click on the printer and select "Use Printer Online".
f. The display should change to ready when the printer is set to online.

My hp 900 inkjet is offline and doesn't want to feed paper.


The solution for an offline error of a printer is to check the proper connection of the printer.

Two options exist to turn off the offline mode.

If you choose the first option to change the offline state of the printer,

then go to Control Panel and then 'Printer and Faxes' option on the Control Panel.

Double-click on the printer you want to change to online mode from the displayed window.

A pop-up window will open and you need to select 'Uncheck Printer Offline' option from the menu bar.

try this:

Hope this helps you.

    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.

    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.
