I am trying to print to my hp officejet 4635 from my ipad but the printer is offline. How do I get it back online?


Sometimes the only thing that works is to shut the printer down completely and disconnect both power and the data cable, then set it up again and check that it is back on line. Before doing that, though, check the printer in devices for a jammed print queue. You will have to empty the queue to start printing again.

So far answers don't coincide with the directions I've been given, which is "Press the WSB Button for 5 seconds."


The print queue is what is locked up. Try deleting the items in the print queue.
Start by pausing the print queue. Then delete the items in the queue one by one.
When you have the last print job in the queue it will probably be jammed up in the transition between the computer and printer. Switch off the printer. This should cause the printer on the computer to become offline.
Try deleting this job abain. If it dissapears then turn the printer back on making sure the computer understands the printer is back online. Then try printing again.
If it does not dissapear then you will need to restart the computer to free up this job. When the computer is back up and running check the print queue again. If the job is gone then turn the printer back on and try printing again. If it is not gone then try once again to delete the print job and it should dissapear this time.
Once the job is gone and the print queue is empty turn the printer back on and make sure the computer understands it is back online again.

HP Deskjet 6980 won't print. Says offline but i don't see how to turn it back online. was working. now not.


Printers often go off line for no reason. It can be genuinely off line or the pc is just not seeing the printer anymore To put it back on line all you need to do is open the print queue (double click on the printers icon in printers devices/ printer and faxes) go to File and in the drop down list it will say "Use printer Offline or Use printer online. click on it and if the pc is seeing the printer if will change and the printer will then start up and print. If this does not work then check your cable to the printer or your network connection to reestablish the connection.

Printer is offline


Hi, turn it's power on. be sure the usb/data cable is connected to the cpu, if still not, remove the printer's adapter and connect it again, power it up again. if not still online, restart your pc.



When you want to print a document, you choose print and select your favorite printer but nothing happens. You look at the printer menu and see the pesky printer offline message and instant frustration. The task of the moment is going from offline to online. With creativity and patience, you'll have your printer back online in no time.

Instructions



Attempt to set the printer to online. This may not often work but it's the first action to take. Go to "Settings" and then "Printers". Right click on the "Printer" and select "Use Printer Online". Test the printer to see if it now prints.


Clear any print jobs. Double click on the "Printer" after performing the above step. Go to the "Printer Menu" and select "Cancel All Documents". There could have been a stuck print job that would cause the printer to go offline. Try once again to set the printer back online and try printing a test page.


Turn on the printer. Make sure the printer is turned on and turn it off, wait a minute and then turn it on again. Check to see if the is jammed. Check all the network connections to make sure none are loose. Repeat the above steps again if necessary.


Restart the computer. If this doesn't work, you will have to reinstall the drivers. Go to "Settings" then "Printers" and select the printer. Right click on the printer and choose "Properties". Under the "General" or "Details Tab" look for the driver button and select it and choose the driver again. You may also have to download the driver from the printer manufacturer website.


Reinstall the printer. Under "Printers" in the "Settings" menu, go back and select the printer, then delete the printer and reinstall the printer through the add printer wizard. Use the latest printer driver from the printer manufacturer's website.



Hope it helps.


Thanks for using fixya.......

Printer off-line


Hello my friend, see to it that your printer Epson Stylus is properly connected to your computer (USB Connection). Mostly when printer get off-line are not Power-ON, USB connection failure, or manually set to printer ONLINE. Printer are detected by your printer initially when power on or you may be hear some sound if the printer is connected or ready.
If not go to Printer Properties and manually select "PRINTER ONLINE". This are some problems that encounter with the printer.

Cannot Install it Successfully


Restart you computer. Turn your printer off, wait 20 seconds and turn it back on again. Load up software you use to talk to the printer.

What interface are you using to connect to the printer?

Canon i860 "printer offline" but light is blinking


Move mouse pointer on to your printer icon in the Printer folder. Does a right click and click on the sixth line of the menu (“Use printer on line”). Then it will change as “Use printer offline”. Make sure the printer is set as default printer.
