Question about HP PhotoSmart C4480 All-in-One Printer InkJet

2 Answers

My Mac can see the HP C4480 in the profiler but I can't print because I get a "printer is offline" message. It's plugged in, turned on, and connected. The copy function works fine

    It's MAC, a MAC- there's no right click: I did check the cable.

    It's a MAC- there's no "control panel" or right click.. there's a preferences and a print and fax dialogue but no option for running the printer online or offline. I need someone familiar with MAC OS

    Printer offline message


    This should be a button on the printer to put it on-line. If not check the computer settings for your printer. Try tech support or youtube.

    Reset your printer by turning it off, unplugging power from the back of the printer for 30 seconds, plug back in and turn on.

    Next, reset the printing system:

    - Sys Prefs, Print & Fax
    - Right (control) click in the rectangle listing your printers and select Reset Printing System.
    WARNING - this will delete ALL of your printers!
    -Select the plus sign to re-add it. Look for the printer, select it andwait until the "Add" button becomes available. Click it.

    Printer is offline & will not print ... not even a test page.


    First, make sure that the printer is properly connected to the computer and it's turned on.

    Go to Control Panel > Printers > right-click the printer icon > select "Use printer Online".

    Make sure the clear the pending documents on the queue before trying to print a test page.

    Thank you for using FixYa!

    Printer is offline, will not print anything. Tried to reinstall disc, but that did not work


    Go to the Control Panel and open "Printers" or "Printers and Faxes". Right-click the printer icon. Make sure to SEE 'Use Printer Offline'.

    Once you see 'Use Printer Offline', meaning that the printer is currently Online. Once you see 'Use Printer Online', meaning that the printer is currently offline.

    Have a great day!

    The printer simply won't print.


    Try Resetting the device. If that doesn't work try to plug it into another port on your mac.
