Insert the hp printer installation cd into the cd drive and exit out of the autorun option then double click the computer icon to open the computer featuers and right click on the cd drive and select open then go into the folder called "util" inside that go into the folder called "ccc"
now inside ccc look for a file called uninstallation l1 and double click on that (this will uninstall your incorrect the drivers for this printer).
once that is done restart the computer and re-insert the installation printer cd and open computer and double left click on the cd drive and in the splash screen select install or add a device whichever you get complete the installation and your printer will start printing again(keep in mind that before clicking on install or add a device click on start and in the start search bar type "services.msc" click on ok and in the new window look for hp network device and hp cue and double click on them and make sure in the drop down list only automatic shows and nothing else). Happy printing

Well it s a issues with the ip address on the printer and the computer.Both of them are not the same.You need to delete the printer icon and inser the cd that came with the printer and then try add a device .The printer drivers would be reinstalled and it should be ready to print and scan.

Why the offline message


Hi,
Check the status of the printer at Control Panel. Set it to online if it's shown as offline. If this doesn't fix the problem, check whether installing the vista driver available at your printer manufacturer's website helps.

Step 1:
a. Click Start, go to Control Panel and select Hardware and Sound.
b. Click Printer.
c. If the Printer is offline, it shows "Offline" status. If the Printer is online it shows "Ready".
d. If the Printer is offline, set it to online.
e. Right-click on the printer and select "Use Printer Online".
f. The display should change to ready when the printer is set to online.

Print status: error - offline what does this mean? I have a PSC 2355 all-in-one


Printer status offline means that, the printer driver and the application has been installed, but the printer and it spooler services are idle

To resolve this issue:

Goto control panel, click on printers and faxes, a window will open showing you all the printers you have or have had. The current printer will have a checked mark. Highlight it and right click, you will see printer offline in the box, click it. That will turn the printer online and you can print.

Photosmart c6180 printer status offline


IF you have more than one printer set up on your system take all the others off except this one if you are able to without disrupting your home printing flow for others.

Another suggestion would be to download the newest drivers if you have not already; I found the site below with the drivers for this printer at:

Hope this helps.

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

Photosmart 2575 printer is offline - won't print


Good Day,

One thing you can try instead of deleting the doucment writer is to change the default printer. You can do this by right-clicking on the HP printer icon and selecting "set as default" from the drop down box. Also try turning the printer off and back on aswell as restaring the computer if you have'nt already. Did that printer ever work from that computer? How is it wired, by "switcher" do you mean a shared printer through you network(was printer sharing configured properly), or an A-B printer switch. Please clarify

Hope this helps for now
