Computer is not recognizing your printer. Change the usb port you are using, or change the printer cable.

I have an hp officejet j4580 all in one, how do i switch from working offline to work online??


In Printers and Faxes, highlight your printer.

Select File from the menu. If there is a check mark next to "Use Printer Offline", select it, which should uncheck it.

If still a problem and your printer is offline because your computer can't see it, be certain the printer is powered on and ready to print.

If still a problem, disconnect your printer cable and reinstall the printer software (driver). Reconnect the printer cable again to see if your computer sees it. If not, your printer cable could be faulty.

Hope this helps.

if you go to the file at the top left of the screen click on it and look towards the lower part of the file and you will see work off line and if this is checked uncheck it also make sure that when you set up the printer originally that you set it up for online use.

You need to update your video drivers. If there is no upgrade, than buy a new video card from walmart for 80.00. This will solve your problems.

Printer goes offline for no apparent reason

I don't know if you've tried this already so please forgive me if you have:
I don't know what OS you are using, so I'll presume you're using Vista. Type Services into the search bar and open it. (In XP you click Run, and type services.msc)
On the Services Window, scroll down to Printer Spooler. Right-Click on it and Restart or Refresh it.
Now try and print something.

Let me know how you get on with that!
