If you "right click" on the printer icon, is there an option to "use printer Online", If so click it, and the problem should be solved. If it just says "use printer offline" then that is not the problem, and I suggest re-installing the software.
Please let me know

Hi,

Go to system settings and select the 'Printer' option.

Right-click on the printer and enable the 'Use Printer Online' function.

Cancel all the printing jobs till that moment and redo the process.

Sometimes the 'Printer Offline' message occurs due to a 'Job Stuck' issue.

Check all network connections and functions.

Be sure the network interfaces work properly.

Turn the printer off and on to see whether the device is working properly.

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.

Now right click on the printer model.. and click the "Use Printer Online"
After that you will see that the image of your printer is clear with the word "ready"
Try to print again.

Printer Offline Message


If your system is showing Printer Offline message, then you need to check the status of the printer in control panel. If it is offline then you need to set it online. The following steps will help:-
1) Click start -> Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Select Printer.
2) If the printer is online it shows "Ready". and if the printer is offline, then it shows "offline".
3) Set the printer online if it is showing offline.
4) Now right click the printer and select "Use Printer Online".
5) The display should change to ready.

Note:- If still you are facing the issues, then update the printer driver or you can also take assistance from any tech support provider such as AskPCExperts. To know more you can also visit: http://www.askpcexperts.com.

Print status: error - offline what does this mean? I have a PSC 2355 all-in-one


Printer status offline means that, the printer driver and the application has been installed, but the printer and it spooler services are idle

To resolve this issue:

Goto control panel, click on printers and faxes, a window will open showing you all the printers you have or have had. The current printer will have a checked mark. Highlight it and right click, you will see printer offline in the box, click it. That will turn the printer online and you can print.
