Question about HP Deskjet F340 All-In-One Printer

2 Answers

Printer is offline.

Yesterday, while printing, I accidentally turned the printer off. Today, it will not print. I can copy, and scan. I checked the printer folder and it says it is offline. I clicked on the "use online" line and it still is offline. My daughter-in-law, who is my "computer geek" is unavailable right now, and I really need this printer to work. Help, please.

I had this problem today with my wireless Brother MFC-990CW using Windows 7, and when I went to see what s printing, then printer, it wasn t showing that I had checked the use printer off-line
So, on my pc I went to the start button then chose:
- Computer
- Network
- Double click your printer
- New print drivers will start to install
- Right click the icon that is a copy made of your printer setup
- Set this as your default printer
I was then able to print and my printer didn t show as being off-line anymore. This is a lot easier than having to uninstall and install the printer again using the disc.

I have a Canon Pixma MX330 color printer. It gets used only occasionally, usually to print brochures and the like. I recently switched it to copy mode by pressing the "copy" button on the front; now it...

When you double click the Printer and Faxes icon in the Control Panel you will see the printer that your computer is currently using. See.... if the printer image is clear it is online and ready to use, if its blurred then its in offline mode and cannot be use.

To correct offline printer.. some possible reasons is on the usb cable.. check if there is no open wire along the cable...Inserting the USB connector on the other usb slot of the cpu sometimes work just wait first until it is read.

If the printer is still blurred and offline after checking the usb connection, the 2nd thing to do is check the properties of the printer if it is set to offline mode. how? Double click your printer icon. It will display the print jobs window. Click on the Printer tab and uncheck on the "Use printer Offline". Cancel all pending print jobs, close the printer window and try again to print.

Computer says Orinter is Offline but is connected. Has the Fax button highlighted. Only have Copy, Fax, Scan, Memory Card to select from, which one should be highlighted for printing from connected PC

In order to print from PC you should choose COPY function. To check the connection between PC and your printer perform these steps:
  • Right click on printer driver name (Canon PIXMA MX 850 in this case)
  • Choose Properties
  • Click on Maintenance tab
  • Click View Printer Status: the status should ONLINE in order to print or scan
If still Offline,please recheck USB cable,reinstal it,or compare with another cable.

Printer not responding

I had the same problem after I accidentally pulled the power cord out of the printer - it turned out to be the firewall on my PC, when the printer reconnected to the wireless network it got a new IP address and the firewall was blocking incoming messages from it.
