  • Make sure that the printer is powered on.

  • Pull up 'My Computer' then click on 'Control Panel'. From the Control Panel, click on 'Printers and Faxes'. You will then see a list of Printers connected to the PC.

  • Delete pending print jobs to make sure that the correct document will be printed later and for you not to waste paper. Double click on the printer that you want to use, and a window will appear showing you a list of pending print jobs. Simply click on 'Cancel All Documents' from the 'Printer Menu'.

  • After you have deleted all pending print jobs, right click again on the printer icon and choose 'Use Printer Online'.

  • Try printing a test file, if it doesn't work the first time, reboot the PC.

My printer keeps going offline. What can I do to get it back online?


I understand your Printer is offline on your Windows 8 computer.
The easiest thing to do is just rebooted everything. Turn off router, computer and printer.
Wait a few minutes and turn on router, computer and printer.
Before trying to print make sure there is nothing waiting to be printed. Right click on your printer and see whats printing. Remove if anything there. Try to print again.
If the printer still showing offline try installing and running HP Print and Scan Doctor.
Download and install at this location.

My HP deskjet D4260 is offline. I have tried everything to resolve this but cannot find a way of etting it back online. Please help


Once you have added either a USB or networked printer to your PC or Mac computer, you can begin sending documents to print. However, on occasion, a print command will create an error on the printer and take it offline, which will prevent all future jobs from printing. To resolve this issue, you will need to change your printer settings from offline to online.
    PC Instructions - Open the Start menu and click on the "Printers and Faxes" icon. This will open a window with a list of the printers currently set up on your computer. - Double-click on the icon of the printer you want to change to online. A pop-up window detailing all current print jobs will open. - Go to Printer in the menu bar of the pop-up window and uncheck "Use Printer Offline." This action will change the printer from offline to online.
    Mac Instructions - Open System Preferences by clicking on the icon in the Dock. - Go to the Print & Fax control panel under the Hardware category. - Select the printer you want to take online from the list on the left side of the screen. Then click on the "Open Print Queue" button. - Click on the "Resume Printer" button at the top of the queue window to change the printer from offline to online.

Printer is offline and will not print. Restarting does not help.


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.

Printer is offline, will not print anything. Tried to reinstall disc, but that did not work


Go to the Control Panel and open "Printers" or "Printers and Faxes". Right-click the printer icon. Make sure to SEE 'Use Printer Offline'.

Once you see 'Use Printer Offline', meaning that the printer is currently Online. Once you see 'Use Printer Online', meaning that the printer is currently offline.

Have a great day!

I ran out of paper while printing. when i added more paper the printer went offline. i can't go online. i am in safe mode and had no problem with the printer until now.


Hello sagold15,
For some reason your printer went offline during the out of paper. Go into your printer section and right click the printer in subject and check it the "Use printer offline" is checked. If so, uncheck it and your printer will be back online. This will help your question.

Good luck and thank you.
