I have the same problems printing to my HP 6300 using Windoz 7. I have tried the solutions posted on HPs FAQ... They don't work for me. Here are the two solutions that work for me:

1) Boot Ubuntu Linux 12.04 LTS (Dual boot laptop in my case)
1A) Work and print from there (works every time for me)

2) Use your smartphone running Android ICS
2A Work and print from there (works every time for me)

HTH.

I have the same trouble with the hp 6300 series going offline. In the properties though, it says "use printer offline". It's as if it doesn't realize it already is offline. (It tells me so in the devices and printers screen). Please advise. I keep having to uninstall and reinstall the printer and since I've had to do that often, it no longer recognizes that it's also a scanner!! I have to find the drivers for that online even though it goes online to reinstall it. Please help!

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.

If the Lexmark printer creates any error message that shows offline mode, you might have to convert the printer to online mode. In order to turn on online mode select the start menu and click on the "Printers and Faxes" icon. This shows you all the printers and other devices that are connected to your system at that time. You might have to double click on the printer icon in order to change it to online. A pop up might come up while performing that and you have to go to printer option in the menu bar of pop up window and have to uncheck "Use Printer Offline."
