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.

I just purchased a Dell Inspiron i570 computer. I hooke my HP C3140 up to it. It shows as my default printer but the status shows as offline. How do I change it to online?


Offline means the printer is off. You should check printer to see if it is off, then turn it back on. If it is already on, check the cable (usually usb printer cable) to make sure the cable is securely plugged in to computer and and to printer. You might also need to reboot your Dell printer too. After all these, but printer still says offline, you might need to delete that printer in control panel, printers and faxes and reinstall again. If this is a case, you need to follow the printer installation correctly for it to work. Let me know if I can further help.
Thanks

Hp deskje d2360 printer showing offline error


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.

Printer is offline. how do I get it online?


Once you have added either a USB or networked printer to your PC or Mac computer, you can begin sending documents to print. However, on occasion, a print command will create an error on the printer and take it offline, which will prevent all future jobs from printing. To resolve this issue, you will need to change your printer settings from offline to online.
    PC Instructions - Open the Start menu and click on the "Printers and Faxes" icon. This will open a window with a list of the printers currently set up on your computer. - Double-click on the icon of the printer you want to change to online. A pop-up window detailing all current print jobs will open. - Go to Printer in the menu bar of the pop-up window and uncheck "Use Printer Offline." This action will change the printer from offline to online. Mac Instructions - Open System Preferences by clicking on the icon in the Dock. - Go to the Print & Fax control panel under the Hardware category. - Select the printer you want to take online from the list on the left side of the screen. Then click on the "Open Print Queue" button. - Click on the "Resume Printer" button at the top of the queue window to change the printer from offline to online.

How do I get the printer online again? The printer icon shows the printer offline and I don´t know how to get it online again. Never happened before


I think its showing offline even if its turned on. If yes then uninstall the drivers from your computer and reinstall the drivers from the CD provided along with the printer.

After installing the drivers from the CD, check whether if the problem is solved or else, do update the drivers online.

Hope it will help you get your printer online :D


cheers

Our HP 3100 All in One printer is "offline" when we check in the Control Panel under "printers". How do we get it back online?


Under printers, On the Hp 3100 model, right click on it, if it shows Use Printer Online then select that Option. Else if it shows "Use Printer Offline" it means to say that your printer is online.
Also check that whether the Power is On to the printer. Communication cable is connected. Proper printer port is selected.
