Are you using the USB or the Network setup?

Windows Vista?

There are issues with network printers and vista going offline and having to be reinstalled again and again.

If it is a network unit you should upgrade the firmware on your router, change the router's dhcp range to a minimum of xxx.xxx.xxx.50 and over. Then set a static IP on the printer below that range, such as xxx.xxx.xxx.49 then re-install the printer on the computer and it should stay online.

Let me know if you need anything else,

Thanks,

Kevin

Says printer offline


"Offline" means it can't connect to the printer. Check all the wires from computer to printer, unplug and re-plug. Unplug printer from wall, wait 30 seconds, plug back in. Make sure printer is on.

Hp laserjet 4000 printer always saying "off line" and not printing what could be the problem


Please Clarify, does it say offline on the printer itself or on your printer driver. If it says offline on the printer itself, normally pressing the go button should put it online. However, at the age of that printer the buttons could be dirty/worn out, I have had control panels fail quite often as of late. If it is saying offline on the computer driver then that is a whole different set of issues and I would need to know what operating system you are running.

Says that it offline. will do everything except print


There are only 2 reason when printer says offline.

Ist. When computer does not communicate to printer and this is happen because usb cable not plugged in from printer to computer properly or its loose. If use cable already plugged in properly and try to plug the usb cable in a different port in your computer and then restart the computer. and if you are using wireless printer and wireless connection on printer is disconnected then Run the wireless printer setup again by printer disk.

if issue still persist then follow step 2.

IInd. Go to Start>>printer and devices>>here you will have your printer>>right click on it from your mouse and left click on Use this printer online

I checked everything, the printer is connected, there's ink, everything is good, but it says it's offline. I clicked "Use printer online", but it's still offline. I tried Refresh, and it's still...


The first thing I would check is the cable. If you're using a USB connection, try a different (and known to be good) USB cable. If that doesn't do it, you may have a damaged USB connection socket at the printer, which is not cost effective to repair.

Hope that's helpful.

I have windowsvista and plugged my hp pcs1210 into my laptop with a usb and my printer box states my printer is offline


Reference: http://www.ehow.com/how_4796279_change-printer-offline-online.html

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.
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.

There's a small chance this might be your fix.

Hope this helps!
  • Step 2 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.
  • Step 3 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.

    My PIXMA MP620 printr went OFFLINE. No power but everything is plugged in: power, connection to computer. Any help?


    could be an issue with many things. First, try unplugging from the computer and plug the printer into another outlet (on a different circuit). Next, if that doesnt work, try a different power cord (if available). If neither works, than I would say a bad power module on the circuit board of the printer.

    When I print something it says the printer is offline.


    I assume the printer says offline. On your computer, check that the printer properties doesn't have it set to offline. If you have Windows, you go into the printers, right click the printer in question and make sure there is no check mark next to the offline option.
