Question about HP LaserJet 4M Printer

1 Answer

Printer is offline My printer is off line----how do I get it back on line? When I open the control panel and look at my printers, it states that the laserjet 4M is off line. However, the printer itself indicates that it is online. The printer has stopped printing. I am using a cable that is a parallel from the printer but is converted to be used as a usb. I have used the printer before and it has worked fine. I recently moved and had to take down my computer. After I reconnected everything, the printer stopped working.

Hp laserjet 4000 printer always saying "off line" and not printing what could be the problem


Please Clarify, does it say offline on the printer itself or on your printer driver. If it says offline on the printer itself, normally pressing the go button should put it online. However, at the age of that printer the buttons could be dirty/worn out, I have had control panels fail quite often as of late. If it is saying offline on the computer driver then that is a whole different set of issues and I would need to know what operating system you are running.

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


Hi,

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:

PRINTER "OFFLINE" FROM PC CONTROL PANEL, PRINTER SCREEN READY


Make sure you have the ethernet cable plugged into the printer/network and is working properly. The toner replacement doesn't affect the network functions of the printer

HP Photosmart C6180 goes Offline in Vista


Solution A:

Download and install this Critical Update for your printer directly from HP.

Solution B:

There have been cases where if the PC is turned off or goes into hibernate this can occur. To work around this issue the "HP CUE DeviceDescovery Service" must be disabled:

1) Click on the "Start Menu" icon on the bottom left corner of the screen, type "services.msc" in the "Start Search" edit box, and hit enter. This will trigger Vista to pop-up a "User Account Control" dialog to prompt for permission to continue. Click "Continue" to allow Vista to open the Services management console application.

2) The Services management console application is made up of 2 panels. The right panel contains a list of all services available on the system. Scroll thru this list and look for a service called "HP CUE DeviceDiscovery Service".

3) Right-click on "HP CUE DeviceDiscovery Service" and select "Properties" to open the "HP CUE DeviceDiscovery Service Properties" dialog.

4) From the "HP CUE DeviceDiscovery Service Properties" dialog, click on the "General" tab. If the "Service status" shows that the service has started, click on the "Stop" button to force the service to stop.

5) Change the "Start type" to "Disabled" and click on the "OK" button on the bottom of the dialog to apply the changes.

Solution C:

1. Set the printer to a static IP address
2. Logon to the machine as the administrator or with admin rights.
3. Remove/Reinstall the printer using the IP address

Hi Seng, Run a self test from the printers control panel. 1. Press the printer?s ON LINE button to take the printer offline. 2. Press the Control Panel MENU button until TEST MENU appears on the display. 3. Press ITEM until SELF TEST appears on the display. 4. Press ENTER. The Self-Test will print. 5. Press ON LINE to return the printer to the online state. If it prints than you have a software issue if not it's hardware. For Software Check the Density Settings. Make sure it's not set too light. Also try printing from another app, maybe you have a corrupt print job. If you have a hardware issue come back here and I'll help you sort through those. Let me know, Dude
