Question about HP DeskJet F380 All-In-One Printer

2 Answers

Hello. My printer keeps saying Offline. I try to change it to Online, but it won't change. The printer was working fine until I ran out of paper. When I put paper in the printer, it decided to put itself on "Offline" and quit working. I don't know how to fix this and it is frustrating me. Thank you.

You can fool with it and make it work ... I suggest you remove and reinstall the device for best results. If you dont have the software, go to and get it. They may even have updated version for you.

Good luck with this.

Offline usually means not connected to PC or it is turned off. Check your cable connections and power.

I made some copies last week and now my printer won't print. It keeps saying it is offline. I've turned it off, changed ports into the computer, shut the computer down, and tried most of the things I can...

  • 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.

    It is not a printer problem, you have to check in control panel, in printer and faxes because maybe you have made your printer offline, click with the right button and make it online, thats all
