    i have the exact problem - i've tried reconnecting the USB cable and have tried different ports - but all with the same outcome - still offline. I'm starting to think it may just be the cable???

First step I would try is; unplug printer usb cable, then power down printer, reconnect usb cable to printer, power printer back on. If all this fails then lets try one other possible fix. Go to start select RUN & type services.msc, ok now you should have a services window that popped up. On the right hand side locate "Printer Spool" and right click on it, then select "Restart". this should refresh your printer spool. Hope this was helpful.

I tried all of the above and still couldnt get it to work. New cable, different ports, restarting.... I have a canon pixma iP1500 already installed, and Im wondering if that will need to be removed before i can proceed with the MP160.

Printer offline


You did not specify if printer was formerly working, the model # of the printer, or what version of Windows you are using. All this information is needed for successful troubleshooting. However, the below is general resolution for your problem:

"Offline" means your computer cannot "see" the printer as connected and powered on.

In order of things to try:

1. Turn printer OFF. Unplug USB cord from printer (or other end from computer). Wait at least 30 seconds. Plug USB cord back in. Turn printer back on. Does it still show as "offline" under Start --> Devices & Printers?

2. Try replacing the USB cord (yes, they can and do go bad).

3. Turn printer off. Unplug USB cord.
Under Windows Start --> Printers and Devices:
RIGHT click the Konica printer icon. Select "uninstall" (or "remove device") and follow through until printer is successfully UNinstalled. If there is other Konica software installed, remove it also (via Start --> Control Panel --> Add/Remove Programs -or- Programs & Features).

4. Reboot your computer. Follow manufacturer printer installation procedure, step-by-step (consult mfr website if you do not have a printed installation manual). Do not plug in USB cord or turn on printer until instructed to do so.

If all else fails:

Ignore any manufacturer installation instructions.
Do # 3 only above.
Reboot computer.
Plug in printer and connect it to computer.
Let Windows try to automatically install it (in most cases, Windows can install the "basic" print drivers, which are smaller and sometimes more stable than the fancy drivers and excess software the manufacturer wants you to install).

If still no go, you probably have a dying or dead printer. Consult manufacturer website for help.

Connect x2580 Lexmark printer to toshiba laptop


Hello chuck01438 ,


  1. Remove the printer out of the box and connect the power cable to a power adapter.
  2. Install the drivers and necessary software. Enclosed with the printer package should be a driver CD-ROM for the printer. It might also contain some print enhancement software supplied by the manufacturer of the printer. Follow the instructions for software installation.
  3. Connect the square end of the USB cable to the printer and the rectangular end to your laptop.
  4. Turn the printer ON. Your laptop should find the newly attached hardware, and recognize it as printer.
  5. Open any document or picture and click on Print in File menu or click on a printer icon in the toolbar.

Hp7580 will not print from laptop.Will print from the desktop. Laptop will send print to the queue, but will not go to the printer. Printer might be offline, and if so, how can I get it online


Hey there. First of all, I don't know what exactly the situation is but I'm assuming you have a computer and a laptop, the printer is connected to the computer and you wish to print from your laptop with the printer connected to your computer.
First of all, your computer that has the printer connected to it has to be turned on to be able to print through it from any PC. And of course make sure that your printer's shared name is still the same as it was when you installed it. And of course make sure your printer is still shared.
If this is not the case or it's still not working, the easiest thing to do is just remove the printer on your laptop and then add it again.

I hope I was able to help.

I assume you fellow the steps in the manual and install everything correctly. We had the same problem on our hp printer. Sometimes, if you install Windows/software updates, it will put your printer offline. The problem will disappear once I restart my computer.

Hp 4650dn printer showing offline. Connected through airlink router. Working fine one day, offline the next. Power cycled and checked all connections, still no luck.


Hello !

You have to self diagnose the printer by your self. Please try this solutions.

1. Usually it is getting offline when the main computer that connects directly to the printer is off and you are only sharing from this computer through a router or a switch hub. Sure it will mention that the printer is offline and cannot print anything. You need that workstation to be open to be able to connect to the printer.

2. If not, check the cable connection connecting from your computer to the switch hub or router. Maybe it is just loosen for some reasons. Remove the cable to the router and plug it again. Turn off your printer and your computer and turn it on again. Try to print test page.

3. If not, try to unplug the printer cable connecting from the computer to the printer and maybe just loose up. Turn off your computer and printer, after turn it on again. Try to print test page.

4. If still not working, it not something to do with the hardware problem. I believe is it software problem, maybe you upgrade software or install software that harms your printer. Uninstall some programs from the computer that corrupted the driver files. If you upgrade the main computer, I suggest to uninstall and reinstall the printer software.

5. If not, try to replace the port (whether usb port) and maybe this is the problem. Try to turn off the unit and turn it on again.

6. If not, replace the cable connection from to the switch hub, close all the PC unit and print and try to print again.

Here is the only diagnostics solution I can give to you. Good Luck and Thank you for using Fixya.

Error message - printer offline


Most recent printers want software installed first, please use your CD or go to http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=238&modelid=15601#DownloadDetailAct to get the software and driver for your operating system. During the installation it usually asks you to plug in the usb for detection. Give that a try.
