Can't print from HP 2540 aio to my Imac PowerPc G5 OS X 10.5.8 The Imac keeps telling that the printer is offline.


A quick look at the HP web site for this printer shows that it only supports Max OS X 10.6 and later. These versions only support the intel processor based macs. Your PowerPC mac is, unfortunately, obsolete as far as Apple and the peripheral manufacturers are concerned and is not supported.

Try this test:
Let's say you want to print this present page (of fixya.com from Firefox or another web-browser), try File/Print and see if you have the tab Advanced to change to the color cartridge.

Can't print from iMac to Photosmart 7350 printer


So all it really needed was a new cable? Glad you got this one worked out on your own, since none of us had gotten to it yet.
