Question about HP DeskJet 5740 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

My deskjet 5740 won't print from my Mac

The error message says the printer is offline when it is on and plugged in the usb on the mac but it wou't print. I downloaded the driver from HP.com for the mac but I can't seem to find the correct driver and it does not choose it automatically. I have reinstalled the software for the printer a few times with no luck. What is the correct driver I should be using? ( I had this printing once a couple weeks ago when I first hooked it up but since then the power went out and now it doesn't work!) any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

If the printer driver is not set as "default printer", you can not print. Make sure your Brother machine is set as default printer. If your brother machine is not set as default printer, set it as default printer.

  1. Click Apple Menu and choose System preferences..., click Print & Fax, Print & Scan or Printers & Scanners.
  2. Choose from pull down menu of "default printer".

Deskjet F2180 not printing with Mac OS X 10.4.11


When you installed the new software did you delete your old print setup in the printer preferences as it may be conflicting with the new driver. I would delete all appropriate hp F2180 printers from the printer preferences and then install the print software again. When you do that does your printer show up? if it does not show up there could be a problem with the usb cable or the usb port on the back of your mac, swop it into another usb port, if it still does not show up, use a different usb cable. Hope this helps.

Restart the printer and have it reconnect to the wireless access point. Then, restart your Mac - cold boot. Then, have the Mac look for the printer again.

My HP deskjet D4260 is offline. I have tried everything to resolve this but cannot find a way of etting it back online. Please help


Once you have added either a USB or networked printer to your PC or Mac computer, you can begin sending documents to print. However, on occasion, a print command will create an error on the printer and take it offline, which will prevent all future jobs from printing. To resolve this issue, you will need to change your printer settings from offline to online.
    PC Instructions - 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.
    Mac Instructions - Open System Preferences by clicking on the icon in the Dock. - Go to the Print & Fax control panel under the Hardware category. - Select the printer you want to take online from the list on the left side of the screen. Then click on the "Open Print Queue" button. - Click on the "Resume Printer" button at the top of the queue window to change the printer from offline to online.
