My printer is a HP Deskjet D1668. Whenever I try to print offline as well as online, the machine refuses to work. Can you please suggest a person who could do the job on AMC basis?


If you have jobs stuck in the print queue, try clearing them and then printing. If not, post more details and what is wrong and what errors you have.

Our Canon Selphy DS810 is not printing any color on the photo paper. I cleaned it several weeks ago, we have a new ink cartridge in and nothing. It was printing a light yellow color several weeks ago...


There are all kinds of printers and printing problems. It’s important to note at the outset that for safety reasons you should unplug your printer if you plan on working inside the device for any reason. In addition to the electrical hazard, printers (especially laser printers) can also be very hot on the inside, so use caution.

There are a few general troubleshooting steps you should take first, regardless of your printing problem. These will help solve most everyday printing issues.

Reboot. You’ll be amazed at how many printing problems simply disappear after you restart your computer. Also, reboot your printer. Sometimes, for no good reason, a printer will become wedged (it just stops communicating with the computer). Turning your printer off for a few seconds, and then back on, will usually get you going again.

Read the printer’s lights. Doing this can provide you with very useful clues. Is the power light on? Is the paper feed light blinking? Don’t be afraid to press buttons on the printer: Turn it off and on, reset the paper feed, and take the printer offline and bring it online again.

Check your physical connections. Is the power cord loose? Does the cable from the printer to the PC have a secure connection at both ends? Look at the connector pins on your cable. Are they bent? Try another cable if you have one. Check the print cartridges and printing mechanism. Is anything blocking the printer? Are the cartridges firmly in place?

Print a Windows test page. Access your printer’s Properties dialog box (follow the directions given above). Select the General tab and click the Print Test Page button. If nothing else, you can find out a good deal about your printer’s problem. If the test page prints, you have a problem with your application, not with Windows. Answer the questions as prompted and work through Windows’ Print Troubleshooter as needed.

Drivers. Verify drivers on the Details tab in the Printer Properties dialog box. Make sure the installed driver corresponds with your actual printer. Check the manufacturer’s Web site for updated drivers and browse the support pages on the site while you’re there.

OFFLINE problem - unable to print


Hi,
if your printers saying Offline, it means that your printer is not connected/switched on or detected by the computer.
Try a hard reset or re-installation of the printer itself.
power on/off ( On the printer )while this error message appears.
Check the cable from Printer To Computer.

I have an HP Deskjet F4180 (all in one) printer. The printer keeps kicking off line when not using it. Every time I go to use the printer I have to go through getting it back online (Pain in the tail)


that has to do with your settings. If you can access the setting on the printer you can change it to always on. Im not familiar with that printer but my okidata allows me to change it. you should be able to get into the setting by going to printers and faxes or start, control panel, printer & faxes. double click and find your printer. right click the icon and try going to properties and look in there for the option online/ offline. if not in there try printing preferences and check there. Hope this helps.

My HP Deskjet F4140 was working fine until I got a piece of paper stuck. I removed and now it wont print. States printer off line and can not print a test page. IT will copy however.


Turn it off. Unplug the power cord from the printer & usb wait a minute. Plug USB in & than the power cable & turn it on. Next
Open the Printers folder.
Right-click the icon of the printer in use, and then click Open .
Click Printer on the menu, and then ensure that there are no checkmarks next to Pause Printing or Use Printer Offline . If a checkmark is present on either, click the menu option to remove it. If the menu shows Use Printer Online , click that option.

The reason why my HP 1050 printer was offline was because the usb cable drop off from the computer. Once I connect the usb cable to the computer, it was put online again.
