    The computer can see the printer on the network. The scanning function works. But the printer reports that it is offline and will not complete print jobs.This seems to be a random (but frequent) occurance. Sometimes unplugging and re-plugging in the printer is enough to correct the problem.

    I have the same issue - Sat on the phone with HP for an hour one night about a month ago - Problem stopped for like 5 days.

    yeah, I've got the same problem. I have a mac, and just got this printer. It seems like every time I need it to work, it is conveniently "off-line". Anyone know how to solve this?

    My brand new HP C4500 printer has gone offline and will not go back to online. This is a pathetic situation for plug and play hardware. And yes, the HP super smart printer software suite is installed. No such problems with my old Canon printer. That one was absolutely brilliant compared to such modern dross from HP.

    I have the same problem with a new HP Officejet 6500 wireless. It goes offline and all the printer controls stop responding. Setting it back online via Windows does nothing. The only solution I have found is to unplug it and plug back in. Very unhappy with this situation.

On Windows XP and Vista all you need to do is right click on the printer icon and bring it back online. I haven't figured out how to do this on Windows 7 yet.

Sometimes bringing it back online works. Sometimes not. Yes, unplug it and plug it back in does work. But why the h*ll would you buy something that you have to do that with? I've got the latest software updates and it's still dropping offline.

The HP website has a software update for this printer that is supposed to fix the problem.

My Dell 3115cn printer will not connect to the network (it still works on USB cable), hard to believe it's broken, so can the printer system be reset?


Try turning off the printer and disconnecting power plug from wall. Hold power on button for about a minute. Then replug unit and turn power on - it should then attempt to hook up to your existing network.

If no go, try reinstalling the software that initially came with printer and was used to set up the network

Do you have a CD to install this printer? if you do go into MY COMPUTER where you can erase things and erase the printer and its system then shut computer off and restart then reinstall the printer using your CD to reinstall it. Some times you have to delete things and reinstall them to work.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Problem installing drivers for HP 4355 printer in vista 32bit OS


Vista OEM Cd usually doesnt come with drivers.

Printer should have come with its own cd which contains both the software & drivers.

If it didn't come with any
You can try using windows update
or
downloading drivers from hp site
