1. Check to make sure the connection to the printer is good.
2. Check to make sure the printer is powered on.

Once you are sure of that:
Vista
3. Go to start > control panel > classic view > printers
4. Right click on your printer and click use online.

XP
3. Go to start > control panel > switch to classic view if not already there> Printers and Faxes
4. right click on your listed printer and click on use online.

You should be good at this point, drivers may reload but should not need the disc.

My HP deskjet D4260 is offline. I have tried everything to resolve this but cannot find a way of etting it back online. Please help


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.

I have an hp C5280 all-in-one printer, and it is shown as offline how can i fix this?


The fact that the printer says it's offline has nothing to do with whether or not you are online (internet) or offline. It just can't communicate with the printer. Have you tried power cycling the printer and your pc?
Assuming it's USB, have you, by chance, unplugged in and replugged in into a different usb port?

Trying to print 'offline'. Computer recognises it is offline but will not print. Error message says 'Printer is offline' which is as it should be. Printer is HP photosmart C4580.


So, if you want to print, the printer must be online. Offline method doesn't work to print. When the computer sayst that the printer is offline, it means ypur printer is turned off or you don't connected the printer to PC.
As in conclusion, if you want to print set the printer online.

Hp deskjet 6980 will not change to online. Working wirelessly. It says Offline and can't be changed to Online. I have to reinstall everytime.


Right click printer properties and select online. Start /settings /printers. Offline can also indicate a connection is not available - this occurs with demo versions of printer software. When the demo expires, the printer goes offline. The fix is to just use windows networking and shared printer.

Hi dpotter,
I presume at least the printer's Ready light is on. Click on Start|Settings and select Printers and Faxes. Right Click on the printer and select Use Printer Online (if printer is online, then this should be "Use Printer Offline").
