Printer reading offline

The printer connects via a radio link which may have a weak signal, or the card may fail. It could be the computer which has lost the connection. Try closing down the computer, then re-booting. If the printer is soe distance away, try moving it closer.

Error 5100

Error 5100 usually means a "General Error". In other words, the printer is not sure what is causing it to fail to print. This is usually a physical error, meaning the drivers are normal, your computer is normal, but something is failing inside the printer. Try turning the printer off and then on again. If it doesn't work, check if all the mechanical parts are moving. Sometimes, the rollers are stuck because of corrossion, or there are foreign materials that may have gotten through the printer that is preventing it from moving normally.

I get a message Printer Not Connected when I try to print with my HPC6280

Jackinvero, here are some solutions you may want to try when troubleshooting this problem.
1. First off, make sure the printer/scanner is plugged in to the computer, and that it is in your Printers and Faxes list. Also, ensure that the printer is turned on, and the LED display does not indicate any errors with the printer.( the basic stuff)
2. reset the printer, by turning it off, then on again. Try to print something as a test. If it still says that, unplug the printer cable from both the area it plugs in to the computer, and the printer itself. Check for any breaks or creases in the cable. (if any are found, replace the cable). Plug the USB cable back in to the computer and printer, restart the printer, and attempt to print another page. )
3. if the above 2 options don't work, try plugging the USB cable into a different USB port on the computer. If this fails, you may need to try another USB cable, to test- if everything listed here fails- you will have to contact HP for technical support/repairs.
hope these help.

Try reinstalling the printer driver.

at 1st glance it sounds like the printer has failed. have you tried another printer to verify the that usb connection for your computer is functioning properly? if you don't have another printer find something else that utilizes usb & test it that way. i.e. digital camera or mp3 player. i have seen computers that will say they're communicating with a faulty peripheral Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 , when in fact they are not. it's just another 1 of those annoying windows quirks. let me know if you need further assistance.
